Australian Life Savers

Not too much info about these.
The top one is by John Dominis, 1958.

Hello - yesterday I went to Bryant Park to see Dennis Cooper interviewed by Tony O'Neill.
It was great.
I did some other stuff after that, but nothing too exciting.

Jennette: Give running a chance, it's fun if you go in the morning. I see people running after work and it always gives me a weird feeling. I think they are living the day backwards or something.

The International Times

Hey - long weekend. Went for a bike ride with Jeff and Kelly on Friday.
Rode up to the Little Red Lighthouse under the George Washington Bridge.
Saturday we went to Kristen and Yoni's wedding in Rhode Island.
Sunday and Monday we relaxed with friends in the quiet New Jersey suburbs.
Yesterday was back to normal, then a dinner party in the evening.
Today I went for a run, but it was raining so I just went over the bridge and back.
Not much else to report...watched a couple of Buster Keaton movies recently.
"One Week", a silent short, and "Film" which is from a Samuel Beckett screenplay.
As you can probably imagine, the first one was way more enjoyable.

It's A Happening

Going to a wedding tomorrow.
I assume it will look like the pictures above.

These are labeled "Modern Living Happening Thomas Moving".

Hey - not much going on here.
Went to Trophy bar last night for the first time.
Had after "work" drinks with Matt and Kelly.
There's a nice backyard and they had the grill going.
Went home and tried to make okonomiyaki.
Sometimes the first attempt doesn't go that well.
Burned the first one, second one was...pretty good.
It was a learning experience.
Today we're gonna ride some bikes and see some art.

Matt: the "Cans Film Festival" is probably in LA not France.
