DUDE. Next time I'm in Portland, we are totally doing a shoot where we're replicating that 8 1/2 poster with you as Mastroianni.

I was pretty surprised to look at it again and realize, "Shit, that looks like me." I'd love to be Marcello!

By the way, since one person has already expressed concern for my well-being, this posting was not a cry for help. I started my fifth-and-a-half novel officially yesterday, and this was my way of saying so. The playlist is dark, because the book will be dark. It's going to make Horizon look like a laugh-a-minute comedy.

Heh. You also had me worried for a moment there Jamie... so I'm actually glad that it's all good news!

(oh, and awesome sad songs list!)

How delicate do people think I am?!

Santiago said...

Heh. I believe it's all about the context... when there is none people with a little imagination let it go wild (guilty as charged!)
