La Ville Lumière

Je suis à Paname en vacances. Plus à venir...

C'est ma chambre d'hôtel. C'est jolie, non?

Indo Board Guitar Hero

Indo Board and Guitar Hero. Who knew that this would be the perfect combination to amuse oneself? It's about getting low, hanging ten, hanging heels, goofy footing it, bouncing and spinning while playing Guitar Hero. It's about using all of your mental and physical coordination and balancing abilities, you know, those "core" muscles, while maintaining your style and grace. And a bottle of rosé brings out that joie de vivre.

shaka bra...

Juggling grapefruit with the cat on board.

Star Power!

"I've got my own work to do..."

Sorry for the lack of updates. I'm in the midst of moving (it happens this weekend) and am just overwhelmed with just e v e r y t h i n g . . . Packing, working, packing, BB8, sleeping, then packing again... and all sorts of friends visiting from around the world, it's all a bit too much at once... Hi Maria, Hi Amy, Hi Mike... It was lovely but brief.

But the one thing that never gets old (surprisingly still!) is last year's Television Personalities' "My Dark Places." Sad but it makes me feel good... misery has its merits, yes indeed... Here are my two faves:

"No More I Hate You's.mp3"
"There's No Beautiful Way To Say Goodbye.mp3"

The Deathly Hallows

Last weekend I went to New York again. I took the red-eye. It helped though the 4-hour delay due to mechanical error was the main bore this time around. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as hot and humid as I thought it would be for this time of the year. It was actually lovely. Stayed in UWS again and did what UWS residents usually do: hung out in Central Park, shopped at Balducci's, dined at various neighboring bistros, read the new Harry Potter, etc...

An evening stroll through Central Park.

Met up with Amy at the Andrew Kreps Gallery in Chelsea. Can I just say how rad her shit is? It's pretty ultimate.

This is David Sherry's work who is also in this group show. Another awesome artist and person.

You know, I was really into doing UWS things. This is what you do. You walk 40 blocks uptown and catch a friendly game of baseball in the park.

Had a yummy dinner with one of my oldest bestest friend from high school at some Japanese joint on Houston. Yum yum, piggy's bum...

I took the subway all the way to Brooklyn (which is a big feat for me!) to see Susie's new baby boy, Max. He's wearing the onesie I got for him. Babies are precious.

On my last night, I made it downtown to Sway to see my old friends. Kuo introduced me to Dan, Abby and Pascal (who was there in spirit); they are all in his new band... Here's the first look at Clams Casino, the super duper new band that will soon blow your mind!
