everytime i pull up short on the streets of NY,
i am dazzled by the power & energy.
saw jozie east coast, & mimi too, miss melle came out & we all met @ dojo on st mark's & had a lovely time.
as always, thanks to Michael @ the Beauty Bar for his
hospitality. ida & i conquered the wholesale district & were
sad to see our favorite korean vendors have disappeared
without a trace...where? we do not know.
even so, it was a wonderful day.
before leaving for NYC, i attended the "Found & postsecret" talk put on by atomic books--
Davy from Found had some hilarious stories, and when i got my book signed,
i told him i was the one that sent in the big stash of porn for the last "dirty found" issue--
he said, "oh yes, we Loved that haul". (yes, go get it, i got three pages in.) "postsecret" is Frank's project, he invites people to send in their secrets on 4X6 postcards, drawn out in any way they see fit. some chilling secrets, so sad, but also very funny ones as well.
they are bringing their tour to CA, check it out if you can...
now i am in the convention hotel, waiting for the boss to arrive. damnit, where are my elf ears..?
last thing, i am sad about something tonight, a certain viking is trekking on out of my life & i just have trouble to say good bye....but a thousand tears won't change the fact that if i were a nick cave song, i would be "nobody's baby now"...i wish him well. i love him.
