i like that whenever i write “curating” spellcheck asks if i mean “crating”
this post has two fun events, two photographers, and at least a little bit of art i promise
BLORP today was the last day of Evan Gruzis’ exhibition and a few hours after the show closed Jorge had everything magically off the walls and packed and labeled, WOW
it’s 1AM and i just finished two 3000 word articles and the gallery is empty!
i am really impressed
ha ha look at these crazy boots she owns
they go with her new look
cargo cords and baby tee
(we were stoned)
the only time i like this thing is when it rains and you can see Kenny underneath 🙂
has it been raining a lot? i have been sitting at my computer for what feels like five days straight and dont know
back to this thing!
Evan made this for our True Religion dinner they threw to celebrate him
Fat Radish chefs in Skinny Hallway
true religion showing HOLE how to throw it fancy
totalyl into it
i love fat radish food but i must say i think all dishes have hidden beets….
john got excited to play music so jon got excited to find our basement fog machines
teddy, well, he’s just excited
am i psychologically disturbed because i think it is poignant that all fancy dinners just end up like this?
no im ok
some new little galaxies on the wall
now that show is over we all get to try on fun geisha wig
fabiola got some sexy shoes at INA and got me the funnest big silk dress and cashmere glove thingies!
so i had nice outfit for our big poetry night
was it last night?? my brain hurts
this is Jeru the Damaga
did i spell that right?
if not i am EXTRA embarrassed
look its lance!
look poetry faces
look its Pablo Lopez!
you dont remember because it was before i kept blog but Pablo was my roomate back in like 2003 with his then boyfriend named Nono, best name ever, and i think Dylan Walker was around then too?
Pablo looks like he is from another decade, huh?
one poem was a song and it was good
Mikey David Quattlebaum
i remember when mikey first came to new york he and i had a long kinda jittery conversation about “putting yourself out there” and “contributing to the downtown community” and it is such a thrill to see him doing it
the Hole’s own Derrick Harden
i like that he couldnt quite remember his poem
it took some of the fussy seriousness out of things
poems can make me nervous
im sure you feel that way too
tim was so embarrassed by poetry he put his hood on and then after a while just had to leave
ha ha tim!
the place was packed
he organized the night
his poem was insane
it was kinda like a long rant about the art world in all its failings and an exhortation to young artists to put more poetry and depth into their work
but it was crazy. i think he made fun of deitch? and when he said “art dealers in high heels and coke deals” or something, i felt bad that i had worn platform wedges to the party 🙂
Rene Ricard was next and last
i should have gotten video i hope someone did
he just read notes jotted in a notebook
straightforward and fun and gleeful and strange
he was a friend of Dash’s and Dash’s gleefulness i guess it was, well, i can see where he got it, i can see why they liked each other so much
one poem was like
sober 26 years
but the way he said it!
then i ate weird spaghetti with leaves
i probably should have ordered this because full of pasta i went home and fell instantly to sleep and missed Spencer’s friday party which is always fun and wah-wah i am such a fucking loser sometimes
jeez looks like all i did was eat Pinkberry
with john holland
and let him try out my hair
just when you thought this blog had no art!
eric cahan took photos at the dinner and let me upload them and i got some fun presents from his memory card
i dont know what this is but i like it
that piece on the left looks like Ry Fyan made it
oh that makes sense because it appears we are in stefan simchowitz’ house
i recognize those shapes!
yay! rosie and morris
maybe eric is a realyl good photograher….
kathy but i dont look supercute i look meh
john n jorge
i think this is me giving toast? or about to? or just did
in front of all these fancy people listed in these links!
fashion week daily
shit we should really do dinners more often, or rather True Religion should because they made this awesome night happen
ok martin sometimes looks like nick
not right now
but he nonetheless is fucking photogenic as fuck
goodbye to evan and hello to matthew stone and matt stone!
