matt in sausilito


…so to speak. My pal, Milford, invited me to be his guest at a lovely party given by his firm at this way cool hotel in Sausalito. The views were amazing. This above picture is a shot of me in absolute awe — or I might have been upset as the waiter passed by without offering me one of those little sausage things. Anyway, we had a great time. I wish I had a picture of the prank image Milford’s co-worker’s created of him — where his head was morphed onto the poster of Flashdance. Yes, Milford as Jennifer Beales. Great food, views, people and fun all the way ’round. It was awesome!

Tonight, another friend shared his prize winning gift certificate to a great San Francisco restaurant. It was delicious. I can’t remember the name of the place, but Alan knew all about it and agreed that I was quite the lucky man to have a friend who treated me to such a dinner! Yum!

I owe so many people dinners — it isn’t even funny! Will be glad when I can start to “treat”

I know that you are all so very impressed that after 2 years I finally figured out how to post pictures to my blog! Get ready for lots of lame examples of my photography skills and obsessions.

Excellent Marketing

This is one of the first of many. I just love the iPod marketing. It makes me want to spike my hair and get all jiggy with groove on.

oh, and today my iPod started the day with the following as I selected ‘shuffle’:

1. Best of My Love — The Emotions
2. Bliss — Tori Amos
3. Party Line (12″ Mix) — Andrea True Connection
4. I Feel Love (12″ Mix) — Donna Summer
5. Dynamite — Jamiroquai

so, it seemed my iPod wanted me to have a 70’s sort of day. …I didn’t. In fact, it was all very 2005 as a matter of fact.

Jamiroquai. Hot or badly groomed? I’m going to go with hot. …really hot.

The iPod also played “Happy Together” by The Turtles. A song that has been forever ruined by the French film, MA MERE. David Lynch did a similar thing to Roy Orbison’s “In Dreams” with BLUE VELVET, the brilliant yet misogynistic masterpiece. Sadly, MA MERE is just bad so a cool song is ruined for no good reason.

Ma Mere

And, as I close my post I shall let you see what I am looking at as I type this — yes, the picture below shows you the wall facing my bed. I feel as if I’ve regressed to 14. All of my stuff is in a bedroom. And most of the pictures that decorated an entire condo are crammed onto the walls of a normal size bedroom. At first I felt over-powered by all of these pictures, but now I’ve grown used to it. Please note the tiny blue-tined picture my pal, Derek, sent me several years ago because he felt it would make me happy. It is directly under my prized VALLEY OF THE DOLLS poster. I wake up looking at Derek’s card every morning! …that and my “Barbra & Neil” Gold Record of “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers — back in the day when all one had to say was “Barbra & Neil” and you knew that they were speaking of Streisand and Diamond. I think it funny that the record label simply read, “Barbra & Neil” LOL! If you can’t quite make it out, it is next to my bedroom door. Oh, and do you like my lovely pink beads which act as a door for my closet?!?!?

    Yay – photos.

    Sadness – that jacket you’re wearing brings back so many memories. I was looking for it the other day before remembering that you took it (it was yours, after all).

    Oh, and I ordered my firt iPod. Wish me luck.

    Loved the photos Matt. Hmmm I think your bedroom posters have grown up they don’t really look like the 14 yrs old ones I remember. What is a firt I-pod? Liked the scene from the party.

    ‘Kay, well, can I just tell you that you are leaps and bounds ahead of me – my camera has ceased speaking to my computer so even with eblogger’s new photo link service which is supposedly goof proof, I can’t do it. Waaaah.

    How freaking cute are you anyway? Sheesh.

    I think it is hilarious you are wearing a leather jacket (I think it’s leather) in the middle of July; it was Africa-hot here yesterday.

    And you are preaching to the choir about the regression / indignity of having to cram a lifetime of stuff in a bedroom. Ah feel yo’ah pain. At least your posters are cool and your walls are in good shape! The posters I had at age 14 featured Duran Duran, Tom Cruise (before he went around the twist and became a raving psycho) and the Breakfast Club. Sigh.

    Yay! Photos! Bring ’em on! And the posters? You didn’t even mention the ‘The Hunger’ poster. Such a pretty film to watch. And since you’re regressing, why not spike your hair? Aren’t you San Franciscans all blissed out anyway?
