Suggested listening: “A Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cook

life is like a song. at last. damn etta really says it sometimes. things are good in the bk, hope this finds everyone grinning quietly to themselves about something glorious only they can fully appreciate. did anyone realize it was almost august. i didnt. days have been flipping past almost as quickly as the sidewalk traffic up broadway from chelsea to the condenast building at 4 times sq. which is where i was today. in my “about me” it mentions a little magazine known globally as the gentleman’s quarterly. i stepped inside the GQ office for the first time today.. took one of those long deep breaths that help put life into perspective. that deep breath was quickly interrupted by Andy, the online editor, who snatched up two cdr’s from my idle hands – and left just as quickly with a smile and a “good day.”

i need that feeling again. maybe one day i’ll get there. what is life without the impossible odds and goals?

mustafah was in town and crashed at the daieli. (dopest apartment i’ll ever live in)

he doesnt like terry richardson because he shoots porn. i like terry richardson because he makes money with a camera.

maybe one day i’ll get there. what is life without the impossible odds and goals? grin.

on a related note, i’ve begun to realize someone is going to have to tie my ankles to an 18 wheeler to get me back to boston. i dont want to leave.

here are some photos, shot on velvia 100 and provia 400f in new york city and the surrounding burroughs. the last ones are from the FTX

  3. ninth up from last; money.

    i don’t mind mr. richardson when he’s doing real photography (i.e., not trying to pass porn off as something unique). he can shoot good, too. it’s just odd how he chooses to incorporate himself and the style of flash-photography-pornos as a style, when that stuff was around back when there was only flash photography to make porn.

    but he makes $$ and that’s neat.

    i’d rather be remembered for something other than making porn pics with myself in ’em.
