Dark in the hoooooooouse. I might have a job, after much pavement-pounding. I did my scene today, met some hot Art School girls, got a free lunch from a Jew, found out that Mexicans love ABBA, and explored the city. I applied at some place called Star Magic, a Spencer Gift-style retail gadgetry store and the dude sounded at least a little interested. Barnes & Noble always give me the same brush-off (you are one among THOUSANDS, mortal) but I applied there, too. We'll see.
I just need some cash. Positive instead of negative cashflow. I don't have to be riding with my bowline high above the water, but as long as I'm not sinking, it's all good.
And you may ask me, how do you work this? And I might ask you, where is this subway train going to?
Things I've remembered that I forgot to post about just this week:
My cool-ass dream where I was a counter-terrorist plant (no, I don't play CounterStrike) on a field trip with my high school class where the bus was taken over by Iraqis. My boy, P-fly (Pat Amato, aka Li'l Siobhan) saved the day by driving the bus off a cliff. We need more Hollywood movies where the hero doesn't save the day, and, in fact, ends up pretty inconsequential. Where the protagonist is not the hero, rather. Well... no. Umm... you know what I mean.
The tagging show on Public Access (Manhattan Neighborhood Networks). Hosted by James Top, who looks like an amalgamation of a few characters depicted on In Living Color, it's a show about old skool graffiti taggers. People sign their names to public edifices and claim to be keeping "it" real. Say it with me: "WHAT IS IT? It's it. WHAT IS IT?" etc. I was disappointed; I thought it would be about graf artists; the people who actually paint, not just write their names to stuff. Even if the big boys do it pretty, it's still just an ego-wank. Graffiti art, on the other hand, can be frickin beeyouteeful.
Mmm... sea salt.
No, I swear, this negativity thing is really just an act. I don't hate people, and I know my writing is quality (at times; not right now, but I am rushing). Amanda is nice, sweet, and hard to beat!
Public Access roolZ! I saw an interview of The Donnas, who were in that movie Jawbreaker that I love for god knows what reason (I am soooo not the target audience). They actually play music videos on some shows. They also play video games on others. I saw someone playing through (the?) Bouncer and I also saw a Dodge 'em tournament. Kicking it all the way back to old skool atari.
I also forgot two more things, at least, that I at some point remembered forgetting, and vowed to post later (meaning now). Oh, well. What are you gonna do?
