p.s. Hey from NYC. ** David Ehrenstein, I will do my best to, thank you. Ah, yes, your chapter! Everyone, Please supplement what you know and think you know about Philippe Garrel by seeking out a copy of David Ehrenstein’s seminal book ‘Film: The Front Line 1984’, where Garrel is given a chapter, and you can start that seeking here. ** Nick Toti, Hi, N. Good about the goodness with you. Crazy juggling, I hear you. It’s good though. Really good. Even the crazy. Thanks about ‘Them’. I did my (not everyone else’s) first rehearsal last evening. It looks promising. Mostly new cast, very potential-filled, lots to do, but we have time to get it right, I think. Take care. ** Jamie, Whoa. I’ll take that, and hey, JAMaIEstro. Sorry, that was a stretch, I think. Yeah, nice to be paid, two months late but at least in the nick of time. Due to circumstances beyond control, our script meeting didn’t happen and will have to wait until gets Zac to NYC on the 15th. Cool how revved you sound about the play-in-progress, and those women sound muse-like, yeah. On the plane I saw … the last ‘Maze Runner’ movie, which is, you know, crap, ha ha, but I like those movies for some reason. It was better than the second one and not as good as the first one. And ‘Black Panther’ finally, which, yeah, is very good. And a documentary about Mick Ronson, which wasn’t much of a doc, but it was interesting re: him. May your Friday trick your Thursday into thinking it was Wednesday. Balloon pop love, Dennis. ** Andrew Gallix, Hi, Andrew! Good to see you! Yes, I’ll email you today. Thank you for thinking of me. ** James Nulick, Hi, James. Friends, not really. More like friendly. I’m going get that book and start reading it while I’m here. Cool and yes about Leve. With you all the way. Thank you re: the great time in NYC. I’ll try. I kind of hate where they’re putting me up, so the first thing is to find a way to like it, and then things can get funner. I hope to see H, yes. Love from you know where. ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi. Thanks for noting the gig. That Galaxian sounds quite exciting. I’ll find and snatch it. And I’m glad the Garrel post was helpful. ** Misanthrope, Hi, G. I just saw the news about Anthony Bourdain, and I know you like him a lot, and I’m so sorry. If art isn’t challenging, to me at least, I have no use for it, but, yeah, lots of people like art to be a warm bath. Take care, bud. ** Bill, Thanks, Bill. I reckon it will go well, at least parts. Yes, Ben LaMar Gay was new to me until, like, a week ago or something. Right? You’re in Berlin! How long? Have big fun and take care of Europe for me. ** Jaime Fennelly, Hi. Wow, thank you for coming in here. I’m a massive fan. I’m honored. I only saw your comment this morning, shit, but I was doing rehearsals last night, so … Damn. Any chance you’ll play in Paris anytime soon? Thank you again, and great respect to you! ** Kyler, Hi, Kyler. You’re just across town. How strange and wonderful. I’ll get down there one way or another on a hopefully on a pleasant day so you’ll be likely to be present. ** Okay, off we go. I decided to restore Cal Graves’ unfairly murdered-by-Google post for reasons will surely seem obvious. See you tomorrow.
