daydreaming of Paris….
02.26.08 | No Comments

In 2003 I had a solo show in Marsellies, France. Abi, Kim and I bought last minute tickets to France to attend my opening. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. We had an amazing time together and the best part was the few days spent in Paris. One day Kim and I randomly wandered into one of the oldest and most elegant tea salons in the world, Ladurée. I was vegan at the time but there was no way I could resist the rose petal adorned pastries and floral scented teas. ahhhhh…

As I was eating the amazing decadent stuffed mushroom veggie burger at Shake Shack in Madison Square Park, I noticed a chubby squirrel eating directly out of a packet of mayonnaise!!!

troubled young girls running away to find themselves…

I recently watched two beautifully similar movies about young girls running away and traveling from home to escape from their problems. Both Morven Caller(2002) directed by Lynne Ramsay, and Somersault(2004) directed by Cate Shortland had luscious soundtracks full of sweet electronic melodies, gorgeous cinematography and excellent scripts.

I watched the Oscars last night with a room full of very loud ladies and two boys, and I realized that The Oscars are the Super Bowl for women (and gay men).  I was happy to see that the eternally handsome and amazing DDL won the best actor award for TWBB my favorite new movie by PTA.

…and our ears had never before, heard anything this beautiful.

Rocket’s Tail
by Kate Bush
That November night, looking up into the sky,
You said,

“Hey, wish that was me up there–
It’s the biggest rocket I could find,
And it’s holding the night in its arms
If only for a moment.
I can’t see the look in its eyes,
But I’m sure it must be laughing.”

But it seemed to me the saddest thing I’d ever seen,
And I thought you were crazy, wishing such a thing.

I saw only a stick on fire,
Alone on its journey
Home to the quickening ground,
With no one there to catch it.

I put on my pointed hat
And my black and silver suit,
And I check my gunpowder pack
And I strap the stick on my back.
And, dressed as a rocket on Waterloo Bridge–
Nobody seems to see me.
Then, with the fuse in my hand,
And now shooting into the night
And still as a rocket,
I land in the river.

Was it me said you were crazy?
I put on my cloudiest suit,
Size 5 lightning boots, too.

‘Cause I am a rocket
On fire.
Look at me go, with my tail on fire,
With my tail on fire,
On fire.
Hey, look at me go, look at me…

Lee Miller

Miller by Man Ray

Last night I read an amazing article on the incredible complicated life of Lee Miller by one of my favorite authors Judith Thurman in the January 21, 2008 Issue of The New Yorker.

Lee Miller, the playgirl, model, photographer, muse of Man Ray and others, and war correspondent. “She had the gift of finding beauty in a wasteland, and her eye tends to petrify what it looks at,” Thurman writes. “Organic forms and living creatures become abstract in her pictures, but movingly so—the way a nymph fleeing an aggressor is transformed into a star.”

She was Painted by Picasso and also here.

Sunshine Superman

Sunshine came softly through my a-window today
Could’ve tripped out easy a-but I’ve a-changed my ways
It’ll take time, I know it but in a while
You’re gonna be mine, I know it, we’ll do it in style
‘Cause I made my mind up you’re going to be mine

I’ll tell you right now
Any trick in the book now, baby, all that I can find
Everybody’s hustlin’ just to have a little scene
When I say we’ll be cool I think that you know what I mean
We stood on a beach at sunset, do you remember when?
I know a beach where, baby, a-it never ends
When you’ve made your mind up forever to be mine

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
I’ll pick up your hand and slowly blow your little mind
‘Cause I made my mind up you’re going to be mine
I’ll tell you right now
Any trick in the book now, baby, all that I can find

Superman or Green Lantern ain’t got a-nothin’ on me
I can make like a turtle and dive for your pearls in the sea, yeah!
A you-you-you can just sit there a-thinking on your velvet throne
’bout all the rainbows a-you can a-have for your own
When you’ve made your mind up forever to be mine
I’ll pick up your hand and slowly blow your little mind
When you’ve made your mind up forever to be mine

I’ll pick up your hand
I’ll pick up your hand
