I was approached by Costume Designer Vanessa Porter to lend some bags to a movie she was working on. I immediately said yes, cause I love being involved with just about anything behind the scenes. She posted me information about the film that just wrapped last week. Missed Connections is a film by Martin Synder with a stellar cast including some of my favourites – Mickey Sumner, Annabelle Dextor Jones, Waris Ahluwahlia and Leigh Lezark. A refreshing smart romantic comedy set in these tricky Facebook times.
The only downside is the movie won’t be out until next year! A whole year waiting to see reid.damnit’s name in the credits…sigh. Until then have a laugh at some of these postings – Craigslist Missed Connections

New favourite studio – Tom Sachs
Aaaagh I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist the alliteration on this blog title..Charlotte Tizzard put me on to this site – Bookshelf Porn – a tumblr simply of photographs of bookshelves. I’ve always dreamed of dedicating one room in my future house just for reading, some possible inspiration perhaps?
Eye of the Tiger in Spanish – rockin’
I was doing a mental tally and I’m not sure how this happened, but a third of my friends are photographers. Giovanni and I first met working at a restaurant together when I first arrived in NY in 2004. He’s super passionate about a number of things, espresso, Woody Allen, The Wu Tang Clan, A.P.C. and West Coast Burritos – his ex-girlfriend fed-exed him one once. We ended up rooming together for about 9months in a tiny East Village apartment with a crazy homeless guy and his sister living next door – I swear only in New York City can you share a wall with a guy who routinely collects trash during the day like it’s his job…
I’ve always admired his photographs and he’s finally ridding his modesty and putting them up. These are some of my favourites but check out the rest HERE

Nothing says summer to me more than bikerides/beach and tacos. Combine all three and you have a day made in heaven! I’m planning a trip out to Far Rockaway this week with some buddies to do just that. Selby puts it beautifully with this video:
