Oh wait... MY FRICKIN' I-PHOTO PROGRAM ISN'T WORKING! I downloaded the photos, they're clearly visible on the list, and yet I can't open any photos. What's ironic is that I did mess with them and we posted one already on the blog, so I'm not sure what happened. I'm annoyed. I'll see if I can figure it out at some point because they're hella cute.
On the political front from my friend Mike Shadoan in Cincinnati comes this pictures...
Last Friday our friends Michael and Loretta Rymer came over to see the new house. I first met Michael while working on the film In Too Deep for Miramax. It starred Omar Epps, Nia Long, Stanley Tucci, LL Cool J and Miss Pam Grier-- I was quite popular in black film for a number of years. Anyway, Michael directed that, and then when I left development and needed a job to help pay the rent since my freelance writing hadn't taken off, I worked for Michael on Queen of the Damned. Um... yeah. But it was great fun, paid the rent for a LONG time (films get pushed when your star dies and then September 11th happens a week later), gave me my first and thus far only feature film role (okay, in voice over), and really brought Steve and I into the Rymers' lives.
Then Michael got a script to direct the original Battlestar Gallactica mini series for SciFi. Now I would like to say that I encouraged him to direct it-- and I did-- but he'd already read the material and loved it so my opinion didn't do much. But it makes me feel close. Anyway, we love the show and they brought us a super cool poster; unfortunately, the show is shot in Canada and there's no way we can become extras on the show because of immigration laws; they have this silly notion that they could just as easily hire a Canadian to stand around and look cute or get killed. Fools!
FASHION SHORTS TO CHECK OUT!
My friend Tom Ford sent me this link for LowTee. Seriously, this could be the funniest and coolest swimwear I have EVER seen! Here's the write up from the website:
Philip Heckman's LowTee offers men's swimwear a unique, one of a kind touch seldom seen in resort or beach attire. Each piece is handcrafted by the designer himself from vintage logo and concert t-shirts fulfilling a commitment to make each swimsuit a distinct original. Paying special attention to detail, their vintage cut and retro style graphics have made them a favorite among pop culture buffs and anyone who wants to stand out in a crowd.
Anyway, I love them and if I could wear a speedo cut I would; with a bum like mine it's preferable to stay away from anything too form fitting otherwise you look like an old Underalls commercial; and speaking of that, don't you all think they should bring them back? (Tink! Tink!)
