    yesterday i was so busy that i couldnt tell you that 


    2 live crew at sxsw at the levi fader fort

    my 2 Live Crew concert review got up on the LAT’s Soundboard, and they were nice enough to accept my headline

    Still Horny After All These Years

    which strangely enough was not precisely the headline I was mulling over. i was considering “Still So Horny After All These Years” which my editor Margaret, i think, wanted, but she chose the former, which is totally fine with me.

    im a weird writer in that once i write it down i couldnt give a fuck what you do with it. you can change the headline, you can rearrange the words, you can change everything. once i make the poop if you wanna sculpt it into a castle or a snowman, its all you. i have thousands of more in me and theyre all gonna get out at some point, so no use fighting over this one or that one cuz like doritos i will make more.

    also i trust and respect my editors and copywriters and i value their opinions, no shit. also sometimes i have to make hard decisions and i always appreciate it when my cohorts just let me do what i need to do without a lot of ‘splaining.

    another story that got posted yesterday was my Flatstock photo essay.

    Flatstock is this huge concert poster convention which is better than a kid in a candy store cuz its art. and everything is pretty much reasonable. and cuz it doesnt turn to poop after you enjoy it.

    why are things so poopy in my mind today?

    anyways its very nice to be able to bring my love of photo essays to the LA Times.

    and its totally awesome that I am the one who gets to do it.
