I'm taking a poll. Who wants to see Goth Prom happen again this year? anybody interested? Do we want a new twist? Death Prom? Rockabilly Prom? Zombie Prom? Vampire Prom? Creepy Cabaret? Masquerade? Do we want it on halloween weekend or earlier in the month so as not to interfere with other activities? Is there a location that anyone can think of? the canyon perhaps? too cold? Please leave me comments with all your input.

I was walking home and I comforted a stranger in my arms.
2 blocks later someone threw an open can of beer at my feet

Daft Punk is playing at my house

I didn't get to see Daft Punk, but I did get to go to the afterparty which was amazing. It was dj'd by SebastiAn and Busy P, they mashed up Daft Punk and LCD soundsystem and basically it blew my mind.


Yesterday I closed my eyes and jumped off a platform that was about 30 feet in the air. I don't really know how it happened, but I also swung upside down through the air and was caught by another person swinging about 45 feet away from me. I did backflips off the swing, and I did mention the whole upside down hanging from my knees part right? I wish I had pictures, I'm so mad at myself for not bringing the camera. I wore my unitard too! Arthur was really good at it of course, it seems logical that trapeze would be his next adventure. They kept calling him the pirate king. Its still weird to think that I actually went to a trapeze class, but I have the bruises on the backs of my knees to prove that it happened.


this is what I wake up to every morning, in more ways than one. I like it so much.
listen to it

today i modeled?

Today i modeled for Fred Flare it was sort of fun, but it was weird. I don't think I would like to be a model, it makes me tired. I think Elaine would really like stuff from Fred Flare, in fact I think a lot of our friends would.

p.s.. the yardbirds are sexy

rain/tornado warning/flooding!/new york

Yesterday it rained insanely hard for about 2 hours, which caused not only the subways to flood, but alissa and matts apartment as well. matt woke up to his mattress floating (with him on it), alissas shoes floating by which had traveled from her room to his, and the fan on the floor splashing the water that had collected. meanwhile i was sleeping upstairs, but was wakened and shakened at 6:30 am by thunder so loud that it sounded like it was right on top of us. i usually find storms soothing, but this one was crazy.
This was the beginning of the adventure.
Yesterday was scheduled to be my first attending of a real New York photoshoot. (Now 7:30 am.) I decided to call a car to make sure I would get to the shoot on time, every line was busy, I called about 5 different numbers and companies but nothing would work. So on my bike I hurried to the train stop. On Bedford and 7th North were tons of people milling around on their phones wondering what to do because as it happened, all the trains were stopped due to flooding. For some reason i was still not worried, I knew I would be late, but I am very resourceful, and I usually find a way to get things done, I would find a way to my shoot.
I was standing at the train stop when a girl with a Boston accent and blue eyes asked me what was going on and where I was trying to go. I told her the trains were stopped and I was going to the west side, she happened to be going there too. She said she would have to have her boyfriend drive her, so I casually asked if I could go along. She said sure and that was that, I ended up hanging out at her apartment for about an hour and then her boyfriend (a true New York catholic italian) drove us into the city. One second they would be fighting and yelling and the next they would be calmly inquiring about mormonism. We exchanged numbers and I was off.
Now about 11:00. I arrived at the photoshoot. To sum it up I will make a list
-all male models, a russian, a taiwanese, a white american, and a black american
-abstract sweatsuits
-modern dance (the photographer asking me to give examples of it)
-me playing dj (but using arthurs awesome playlist most of the time)
-me pushing the modeling light button all day
-the 19 year old russian boy was playing with a baby at one point, and then at another was making machine gun noises while rolling back on the floor. He put the Michael Jackson song on repeat, he sang along with a cute russian accent, he drank 3 cans of pepsi while saying how much he loved it, and he danced like the happiest little boy in the world. so i had to get his number.
-I stayed until everyone was gone, I fell asleep on the the train home, and was dreaming by midnight.
I made 3 new friends yesterday, it was so fun. I love New York.

I saw CSS for free last night. They are amazing. All I'm saying is don't be surprised if you see me in a metallic unitard sometime in the near future.
I also saw the New York Dolls for free at Coney Island a few weeks ago. David Johanneson is so old and awesome, I don't think there is a single ounce of fat on his skinny wrinkled little body. His waist could not be more than 20 inches around.
There are so many free shows out here, I feel like I am catching up with all these bands I have missed in the past. Oh yeah, and I saw TV on th Radio. (only for a few minutes though, I felt tired and left).
I am really sad that I missed the Peter, Bjorn and John show in Salt Lake, but I wonder who I will get to see next out here. And for some reason I miss Bardhi????

So i finally found a purpose for myself being here in NY. I am going to set up an internship for next spring while I'm here. I already met with one photographer, he sent me in the right direction. But, at the same time his advice threw everything into upheaval because now I have to start over with finding a style for myself. Apparently my portfolio is too all over the place and I need to have seperate websites for each of the things I do. And I have to decide what I want to specialize in. Oh well, time to start work again. And I am also going to try and have better punctuation when I write. I used to be lazy and never use caps, but I find it useful now in separating words and thoughts.
