dancing, skyscrapers, skulls and pills.

yes, there was some drinking and dancing this weekend. i am powerless to resist.



what else?

i used to work in midtown and spend a lot of time there, but not anymore. and so when i find myself in midtown i am surprised at how pretty, glassy and monumental it can be.

chrysler building

the UN

i haven't been to see the basquiat show yet, but the art i've enjoyed so far this year has been tim hawskinson at the whitney and the damien hirst show at the gagosian. there's a lot of hype around him, and people got all worked up over the shark and the dead cow and whatnot, but it' simple: dude can paint. even though there were crack smokers and bloody car crashes and medical scenarios, my mom liked it too.

hopefully i'll make it to basquiat next weekend.

{meanwhile. the weather is preparing itself. it's almost time for me to bust out my bike.}

so shiny!

something tells me they will find a way to save themselves.

now where was i?

now where was i?


friday my sister and r2 and yellow surpirsied me at work and i ran away early. chilled uptown for a while before i had a date. turned out to be the Worst. Date. Ever.™

we met in the lobby of the hudson hotel, so we could go around the corner to st. paul the apostle church for a friday night fight. it was the golden gloves quarter finals or something, i didn't even care, i just like boxing. and the friday night fights are cool because there's a DJ and beer and hotdogs and a general energetic atmosphere. plus: hot, sweaty half naked guys. you can't really go wrong. unless, of course, you're on the Worst. Date. Ever.™ he showed up drunk and yelled inappropriate things at the boxers and the ring girl. woe is me.

friday night fight

golden gloves

saturday i trekked uptown to get my hair cut by the gorgeous nunzio at rita hazan. then back downtown to eat at rialto and wander around soho, the west village and the meat packing district. fell in love with a scarf in alexander mcqueen but resisted.

sin city

i am so excited for this movie.

i am overlooking the fact that poor jessica alba has to play a stripper (why couldn't she be a scientist, or a tattoo artist or something???) because my #1 and #3 crushes, benicio del toro and clive owen, look so damn good.

thank zeus johhny depp is not in this movie. i would die from hotness sensory overload. watch the trailer here.

oh, you know who else is in this flick? rutger hauer! he was my favorite part of blade runner.

"all those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain."

vive le gin on CNN

vegas mayor defends gin comments

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AP) -- Sin City's mayor made no apologies Thursday after being criticized for extolling gin to a class of fourth-graders.

Mayor Oscar Goodman said he was just being himself when he told elementary school students that drinking was one of his hobbies and that the one thing he would want if stranded on an island is a bottle of gin.

"I answered the question honestly and truthfully," Goodman told reporters. "I'm not going to lie to children. I'm not going to say I would take a teddy bear or a Bible or something like that."

Asked by a reporter if he had a drinking problem, Goodman answered, "Oh, absolutely not. I love to drink."

Moments later, he cut off questions and walked out of the news conference.

Goodman, who has been mentioned as a possible candidate for governor, has never been shy about his love of gin.

He hosts regular "Martinis with the Mayor" events and induced a bidding war between two gin companies in 2002 before becoming a spokesman for one. He donated half the $100,000 he made to an agency that provides shelter and substance abuse programs and half to a private school founded by his wife.

Goodman was at Mackey Elementary on Wednesday as part of Nevada Reading Week when he made the drinking comments during a question-and-answer session.

Principal Kemala Washington later called the comments inappropriate but said the students did not appear to understand.

"It just went over their heads," Washington said.

many thanks to tim for sending me this story.

waiting for the subway

thursday night i met tim and my brother andi n the lobby of the tribeca grand. my brother was meeting some chicks - brokers from CT - and then we all headed to M1-5 where thiam was throwing some kind of soul music pary. mostly we drank on someone else's tab and talked about whatever.

friday after work i met tsuyoshi and melissa at the soho grand for a glass of wine. at some point we walked by hell on gansevoort street, which has apparently shut down. who knew?
remnants of hell

there was also a DWR party at the store on 14th street, so we hit that.

also having mini burgers and fries was the very very very handsome liev schreiber. we tried not to stare, but homes is hot.

then we had one last glass of wine at passerby.


saturday i had brunch at schiller's with a couple of coworkers and the man behind page six six six, perez hilton! then i had to run some errands and shop for a birthday present in soho. celeb sightings: morten harket, lead singer of a-ha and total hottie, and joseph gordon-levitt. cutie.

later that night there was a party uptown, a visit to tsuyoshi's house where we met his parent's tiny chihuahua..


...and then a speeding cab downtown to misshapes for a little dancing. too too too tired to stay too long.
