p.s. Hey. ** Steve Erickson, Kids, parents, gays, and weirdos were pretty much the makeup of the concert I was at. Very best of luck with the tranquillisers withdrawals. What did your doc tor suggest? ** Sypha, That’s what I figured about the Cher thing. Then it becomes what’s the point if it isn’t just a career angle. I guess ‘The Sluts’ was my Moby Dick/white whale project until I finally finished it. Again, the things you’re describing are up my reading alley, but, forewarned, what I love to read is far from what 90% of others do. ** Alex rose, Hi, Alex! Destroyed dreams are where we get our deepest moxie, someone said. Will do, share-wise, but, until September, all of Paris is lounging on various beaches somewhere else or some shit. Literally, you have to walk for blocks and blocks to even hear a French accent in Paris right now. Probably similar in NYC, but without the stylish pride maybe. Oh, no, you finally get to fiddle art into the world at some length and a racket ensues? I’m so sorry. Kind of the same in my building, but more like Test Department than Einsturzende, sadly. When I ‘hung out’ with Courtney Love years ago whilst doing a big article on her for Spin Magazine, she said Ian Bunnyman was the most boring person she ever met. Not the most boring person she ever fucked, though. Apparently far from it. But Courtney’s mouth is full of illusions, as we all know. It sure looks like it’s going to rain here today. Big dilemma re: whether I need to take my umbrella outside with me because I’d have to carry it in an unsightly way, but then again being drenched is almost as unsightly. What to do? Love in vast arrays back to you, maestro. ** Jamie, Me too. Except politics ones, so boring. I vaguely remember something about Ghostwatch being here, yeah. Paranormal hoaxes are cool. Well, I guess it could be argued that all paranormal activity is a hoax. Hm. I did get my smokes, but I had to take the metro with one change (the 8 to the 7) to a train station to do it. I just otherwise worked on stuff but not hard enough, and did upcoming travel figuring out. Darn, did you finally sort out a kid-friendly play? That can’t be easy. Or maybe it’s too easy, and that’s the problem? You’re going to do a workshop in Paris? That is so exciting! I don’t know why, but it is! Thanks for the Stasis link. I’m jetting ‘cos I have to go do breakfast with a visiting friend, but I’ll watch it with breakfast in my stomach. Today: see my friend, work on synopsis, buy Paris-NYC-Paris plane tickets, answer emails, … stuff like that. May Tuesday ‘put hair on your chest’, as parents used to say to kids (or to me anyway). ‘Eat your vegetables; they’ll put hair on your chest’. What kid would want to have hair on their chest? It seems like a counterproductive approach. But maybe some kids do? Between the coffee and the cup love, Dennis. ** Mike W, Hi, Mike. Thank you for coming in here! I will jump all over that Joy Hatto thing, you can be assured. That’s exciting. Thanks a lot! Come back anytime. ** Dominik, Hi! Oh, no, you only had one day’s respite? That’s crazy! You’ve had hot skies for forever! I’m so sorry. I would be dead, I think. Yeah, it’s cool-ish and about to rain here. So sorry. I’ve started the synopsis, but it’s really hard. Our film is not the kind of thing that can reduced to a snappy, catchy two-page description at all. I have to figure out how to do that. Urgh. I like that you went to a gothic event. I want to do that. And it’s cool that you only took one pic and it was a totally unexpected one. That’s the best. Yes, show me your fave Mapplethorpe. I’m sorry the writing didn’t flow, but, yeah, same here, so at least we’re both in that drifting boat. My weekend was okay, but just working on stuff, trying to write, sorting out the upcoming PGL trips/events. As I said elsewhere, Paris is emptied of Parisians, including all of my friends, except for Gisele who’s stuck at home with her broken foot. So it was a pretty indescribable weekend for the boring reason. Have a super fantastic week, and I hope the skies will be cloudy and very friendly over you when I see you next. ** _Black_Acrylic, I liked t.A.T.u a lot too. Sad. Sure, it’s obviously a confidence thing. Just let yourself write blah blah blah until the muse gets bored of that and reawakens. ** Misanthrope, Okay, tangled fingers for the next two weeks. Mine. I guess yours too. Booked, yay! I guess I’m probably going to just miss you in London maybe. I need a cake. France doesn’t do American style cakes. Oh, wait, there’s one place that does. I’m popping by there today. I thought I saw a UFO in Hawaii when I was a kid, but I don’t believe it anymore. I wonder if the kid me or the now me is right. I’ll never know. ** Bill, Right? I know, right? I’m patient, Bill. Almost the soul of patience if need be maybe. New Henry Threadgill? Oh, I want it. Will get it. ** Right. Today’s post is super simple, obviously. I just thought, what would it look like if I put a bunch of gifs together that were unified only by their sharing a depicted movement up and down? Now I know. And so do you, you lucky dogs. See you tomorrow.
