Freaky Friday – 12.19.08

Seriously, how good was that movie when you were a kid? Did anyone see the remake? How was it?

Anyway, Friday was a super surreal day. I got hired to shoot a girls 23rd birthday party. I thought it was going to be at Angels and Kings and the money was right, so I said yes. I don’t normally shoot a lot of birthday parties… A few days before the party, the decided to move to to a karaoke bar, which made me a bit uncomfortable. There aren’t normally a lot of party photographers at karaoke bars. I wanted to cancel, but I need to rent a car when I am in LA next month so I sucked it up. When I got there, they made me take off my hat. Evidently baseball caps are some how not allowed at a friggin’ karaoke bar. Too classy I guess. Don’t want the place to look shabby when people are singing Mac the Knife. It was super awkward at first, but after I met everyone, and they all got super drunk and they played some Al Green I got pretty into it. I spent a lot of time shooting the birthday girl (Happy birthday Vicky!) and he friend who hired me, so there are a lot of repeats at the start of this gallery. I did have fun there, but I do sort of think shooting a birthday party like that makes me a little bit of a whore. But like they say once you turn that first trick, it’s a lot easier to turn the second. So if anyone wants me to shoot their birthday party and give me money for it, I am down, as long as there are no clowns or magicians involved. (A magic clown may be negotiable.)

I eventually took them all to Webster Hall for Trash. Trash is great again. I am really excited about that. Gotta give Alex and Jess props for putting that back together. Semi Precious Weapons played and Michael T and this cute dame named Madame Rosbud did some fancy dance numbers before they went on. I am putting the SPW photos in a separate gallery that will be up soon. I have a pretty good story about those shots so stay tuned. Due to some titty flashing, go-go dancing and full frontal burlesquing this gallery is rated NSFW. But please, if you are not at work, check it the fuck out.

    OMG! I need to to see those SPW pics. Thats was the best show I’ve ever seen. I’ve been hearing about them forever, and just laughed it off because I see them out so much. I will never laugh again in regards to SPW. Hot.

    No offense to SPW who I think are kinda fantastic, but if that was the best show you have ever seen you need to see some more shows…

    haha. I see tons of shows. but all bands these days fucking stare at their feet, and I can’t remember their songs…even while they are playing them. I left remembering the chorus of every song spw played, and wishing I had the lead singers legs. The half tranny one. So as far as I’m concerned…it was the best. (btw…igor do you know spw? does justin fuck boys or girls?)

    you should see some better bands… but they are fun and I had one of their songs stuck in my head all day too. I’ve never seen him fuck anyone so I don’t think I am qualified to answer that.
