What's Happening!

I'm one busy heffa! I'm behind on my posting because of shcool work which is sooooo time consuming, but I have a few minutes to post what I've been up to.

Last week, I went to see Anna Sui speak at my school. Her patternmaker, Anna Lou Plott, was my tailoring teacher years ago during my first go-round at Parsons. I wonder if she's still with Anna Sui now?

Something I did in my life drawing class on Monday. We were practicing perspective, drawing figures at different depths and still having them look like they were still in the same space. I was doing good until the last figure. I still think it looks cool, even with funky mistake of a figure at the end.

Tonight I went to see Kyle Eastwood(Clint Eastwood's eldest son) play with his jazz band at the Blue Note.  He plays the bass and his music is really good. I didn't know he was a musician even thought I did know how much of a jazz fan his father is. I only remember Kyle from the one movie he did with his father, Honkytonk Man way back in 1982. He's contributed to the sound tracks of several of his fathers movies such as, Invictus, Gran Torino and Letters From Iwo Jima.

The Blue Note allows you take pictures, but not with a flash, I guess so as not to distract the artists while they are playing since it's such a small venue. I was sitting very close to the stage. My fist two pictures came out blurry and when I adjusted my camera, I didn't realize my flash had turned back on! I got this good picture though I just wish the girls head wasn't in the frame, but you can still see Kyle pretty well. He looks like his father when he was younger, especially when he got into his music and he squinted, that's when he looked just like his father did in the Sergio Leone westerns he did.

I would love to deny that is me in the picture because I look so wrong!!!!!!! I could have sworn I was smiling and not talking and  lord knows I should have matted that shine on my face before I came out of the ladies room, but that  room was so small, you couldn't linger long in there to fix anything, I damn near fell into the broom closet! Anyway, I am showing my lack of vanity and providing proof of meeting Kyle Eastwood who was gracious enough to take this picture with me and shake my hand. He's a really nice guy. This is how close and up personal you can get with the artists at The Blue Note. I was able to get Nancy Wilsons autograph when I saw her perform there over a decade ago, before I had a digital camera!

Okay, I'm going to go practice my camera ready face! I will be ready next time to take a decent picture!
