Twin Peaks

pretty much my life everyday. 
out of bed between 3:30-6 am depending on what time the background are in and how ambitious the call sheet is, at the studio super early, i’m usually the first in the costume shop, off 12-15 hours later, home to walk stella and maybe go for a run (only possible if I start work at 5 am and am home by 7pm latest otherwise i’m usually too tired and already thinking of the next day’s work) and in bed with maybe a glass of wine, the dog and netflix as soon as i’ve figured out the next day’s outfit. 
i really only have time for coffee.
side note: the other day a particularly annoying person i work with asked me why i am single. the above daily schedule is why. i have no life, i work in episodic television.

this is what I’m doing at work today. my friend Wing is on the show as a cutter for a while and I’m putting together dresses for him to make for me.
designing is the part of my job I love and that’s what I’m focusing on from now on.

I said to someone the other day — I don’t know who I was trying to kid — I said, “It’s not that hard being nice to people.” Which makes me sound like such a good guy. Then I thought about it later. And I thought, “No, it’s not that hard to be nice to nice people. It’s really hard to be nice to people who aren’t nice.” That’s work right there.

Win Butler

i have always had a bit of a crush on Win Butler and a girl crush on his wife Regine. they are the coolest people in the music biz in my opinion, talented, and completely original and i have been a big fan since i first heard Funeral when it came out a decade ago. i saw Win DJ a few weeks ago at a smallish club in Toronto, and he was great. he danced and mingled with the crowd a little at the end of his set and i had the brief pleasure of him dancing beside me and giving me a thank-you smile and handclasp (it wasn’t a shake, littlerally a handclasp) when i told him how i enjoyed his set. it was a cool moment. celebrity without the celebrity. imagine that.

Everyone’s just looking for reasons to wake up and get out of bed, some do it for nothing but a kiss, perhaps a cup of coffee, others have a harder time; no train to catch, no hand to hold, no reasons at all.

early Saturday morning. I’m watching Lawless wrapped in a fuzzy blanket on my parents couch drinking coffee. 
perfection. 
this thanksgiving I’m thankful for a loving family, my beautiful dog, my wonderful friends, music that gets me through the hard days, and Tom Hardy. 
I mean just look at him. I’m pretty sure he’s the perfect man.

veg?

I keep thinking I would like to go veg. I’m watching the season premiere of my show and one of our leads is vegetarian and he’s inspiring me.
I keep thinking of this joke our transpo coordinator told me.
Q: How do you know someone is a vegan?
A: Because they fucking tell you.
I don’t know why I find this so funny but I do.
Because it’s true.
No offence vegans!! I don’t know how you do it but I admire you so! Ice cream! Cheese! I mean really French stinky cow milk cheese. I’d die without it. Chocolate. I’d literally DIE without it.
But that said, I’m making healthful changes.
After I drink this glass of wine and smoke this. So…tomorrow. I’ll make healthful changes tomorrow.

fickle blog

I learned to fickle blog from Ryan Adams.
I do it really well now, as I’ve been practicing.

Botticelli’s people always look crazy. look at those demonic lookin little cupids. up to no good and wonky as fuck. 

Botticelli’s people always look crazy. look at those demonic lookin little cupids. up to no good and wonky as fuck. 

I should’ve died a hundred thousand times,
Teetering stoned off the side of a building.
Nobody loved me and nobody even tried
You can’t hang on to something that won’t stop moving.
Singing and dancing to them nighttime songs.
