For the haircut, I went to a peculiar but awfully nice guy on the Lower East Side. He specializes in cutting only girls' hair into short haircuts (seriously, the nomenclature is "girls", I'm not just trying to pretend to not be 26 Geri Halliwell style). I guess I look enough like a girl to pass. I really like it, and think it's kinda Annie Lennox.
That's my "office" visible in the background. As you can see, it doubles as my "music room" as well as the guest room, the living room, etc etc. Multipurposing and -tasking is what I'm gonna concentrate on, from now forward.
Just so this isn't a me-only post (me-ow), I'm going to link to two nice things on the internet:
- "Spirits of the Humid Cloud" by Gillian Cummings (Wicked Alice 2009). I'm not sure if Gillian would remember me, but we had a class together at Sarah Lawrence, and though we never really spoke I was always a great fan of her work. This poem does not fail to please me. It reminds me of Larissa Szporluk's in the way that the images follow relentlessly one after the other. Gillian's work is much prettier though. You should know what I mean by prettier in this context.
- "Artists fleeing the city," a Crains article I read the other day and linked all over town. It's about how young artists are opting to skip the "New York experience" altogether and move straight to cheaper cities with burgeoning scenes. Is New York over? I don't know, but it is expensive. What do you think?
