We ran out of time for a shoot for Heart & Crowns the other day. So in a desperate attempt to not get yelled at I slipped on the "lovely" jeggings and had Emilie shoot me in them. I wonder if they will notice the glowing white belly in amoungst the sea of spray tanned models in their photos. They wanted some "arty" shots so I thought it would be a good idea to get on my back and hold my legs and torso up in the air....this only resulted in really bad photos, all the blood rushing to my head and falling.


Barf! these are ugly.

For those of you who have never been to Vincent Gallo's website, or don't know of his existence, here is a little excerpt from it that I thought was great. Vincent Gallo is a writer, director, artist, and then some, with such weird style and the look of a chester... but you can't not like him. 
Love it.

" Contact Vincent Gallo 

This is a personal contact page for me, Vincent Gallo. As it is personal, I would like to say a few things about this contact address. Do not send me scripts, as I have never read a script in my life, including ones to films I've acted in, and ones that I've written and directed. I only accept legal pay or play offers from attorneys, please don't tell me about the film you're going to make one day. I'll be dead long before that happens, any day now maybe. Do not ask for signed photographs as I do not keep any photographs of myself and never had a head shot. Keep checking the merchandise page. Eventually, I will try to offer signed photos.
If you'd like to send a nude photo of yourself and you were BORN a female, please do so. I would be happy though with a simple photo of your face. It is nice to see the face of someone who writes me. I will only accept JPEG attachments. I will try my best to answer all email that is not offensive or unreasonable. But please be patient.
WARNING: To all bitter or jealous or unemployed or frustrated or mean or nasty or under-loved or under-paid or under-hung men and butchy girls. Think before you write to me. THINK HOW SMALL AND SILLY YOU APPEAR WHEN ANGRY JEALOUS AND BITTER--WRITING TO ME LIKE A SCORNED FAN. 


He also has a Shop Merchandise section of the site were he supposedly sells random worthless trinkets of his life and sometimes of other peoples. And just look, for only $1,000 you can get him to sign...a book he didn't write. Or get a shirt with his name and some sort of self appreciating saying written on with a sharpie (ex: "Vincent Gallo, Hero")

Vincent Gallo vs. Marcel Duchamp


Gallo chose a rare, out of print copy of the complete works of Marcel Duchamp as a backdrop to his signature, thus one-upping the great Duchamp.

Really guys?

What the heck is Neiman Marcus doing advertising on Do they really think that that crowd who is watching and making videos about Indiana Jones and the Save By The Bell Nip-Slip Tape Treasure have the kind of money to spend at their store? Oh yah, I'm pretty sure they are dieing to get their hands on the new $5000 Fendi purse at Neiman's.

Oh yah wait a minute Mr. Postman

As technology treks on at break neck speeds, our forms of communication have been changing drastically these days. Phones, Facebook, E-mail, Twitter, Text messaging, and now Chatroulette (which by the way is super creepy and you're guarantied to see some things you do not want to see. shudder...) For those of you who haven't experienced Chatroulette, it is a site where you log on and are randomly put into a video chat with random strangers. Now I'd heard some interesting stories about it from friends so I thought I'd give it a whirl.... needless to say there was some surprise penis. (Sorry you had to see that Athena)  :/

Anyways so communication is changing. But is it always a good idea to move forward and not bring along the classic forms of communication? I am talking about writing letters. The age old practice that has lasted for thousands of years and up until about 15 years ago was pretty popular. It's like letter writing was the friend that we had all throughout grade school who was a little awkward but ultimately pretty cool, but when we started jr. high and there are all the popular kids to go join, and the cool sort of awkward friend gets left behind. I'm hoping that things turn out like the ending of the Breakfast Club or with "The Promise" by When in Rome playing at the end of the story. Where letter writing makes a triumphant come back and we realize that we have all been missing out this whole time.

When I first moved to LA I had a lot of free time, and a lot of people that I missed. I also had a bunch of stamps from mailing out college apps and from paying off all my newly acquired parking tickets. So I got into letter writing. It's actually pretty fun to write a fun note and send it off to it's unexpecting owner. You can do all sorts of things, write long notes, short nots, notes filled to capacity with loose glitter. (mmuahaha)

It is the best when you receive a rad letter in the mail! What a nice way to break up the monotony of bills and pizza hut coupons. So if you have about 15-20 minutes to spare, write someone a letter and make their day. I know all you college kids have that stationary your mommy bought you....
It only costs $ 0.44, and its something vintage, so it must be cool. (Said with large serving of sarcasm) I'm surprised Urban Outfitters hasn't tried to cash in on this already... clever little pre-handwritten quirky letters so that your friends think that you are actually the one with some creative spunk. It's only a matter of time. 

And cards don't count. They are for the lazy or the uninspired.
