Here's a few tips to check out when in NYC next time:
(If you're into american pre-depression lighting design like O.C White Co and such)

I missed the polo game by the way, but, I had a breakfast meeting in the Hamptons with Scott Schuman.
Did you have breakfast with Scott Schuman last week?
Didn't think so.

Spring footstool at B4 it was cool.

By the way, the same friend I mention below also refers to Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome as:
"That disease where you age prematurely, wear a large cap and get to meet Michael Jackson"

Jonas Cramby could very well be one of the funniest people alive.

I'll be back saturday with a report from the polo game in hamptons.
I think there might be some old people with large caps there, we'll see.

A friend of a friend quoted Nick Tosches on his blog.
It kind of sums up a wild youth in a fantastic way, with no regrets.
And it doesn't hurt that he (Nick Toshes that is) looks hard enough to kill a large mammal by just looking at it.


For many years, I felt that my youth had been wasted. I spent my adolescence drinking, taking dope, robbing, and fucking around, when I could have been learning to fluently read Sappho and Thomas Mann in the original.

My youth, as I see it now, was spent as it should have been spent. I am alive, and as I write this, the pleasant morning of the vast blessing of another day, another breath, flows through me. I want now to learn to do the tango, so that I can dance in style on the graves of those of my peers, dropping dead around me like flies, who lived their youths, and their lives, properly and salubriously.

Mens sana in corpore sano, they say. But a sound mind in a sound body is but a plain and pretty flower in a plain and pretty vase. The world is full of such parlour pieces. Fuck them, and prepare thy dancing shoes, for, having survived my youth, and all that followed, I now enjoy the gentler madness to whose shore I have been delivered, and I look forward to tangoing in the graveyard, with you, my darling, or over you."

Just had to show you this really cool Rubber boot tote from +-0.
They also do a toaster for one slice only. (?)
Speaking of good japanese design, next time in NYC, pop in to Tricofield. Coolest kids clothing store
in the world, without comparison. Houston & Wooster crossing.
