That has been the question of the summer. I'm alive and well, where am I? I'm in Chicago preparing to move into a new place and I really like it. Just me and my cats and it's staying that way. I have been biking my ass off and spending time with old friends and making new friends. I feel like I live at Street Side. I end up there to rap with my friend Gina and eat their incredible food.
Thursday night El Grego and I went out late night bar hopping. And Friday I was at a Lincoln Park deck party with my new friends Rachael and Cassie and some other girl whose names escape me. (Sorry) But I'm not sorry for the political retard who was offended by my tales of the porn industry. HA! Trying to out smart me doesn't work you right wing fascist bitch. I guess you won't be back.
Saturday was Street Side for Metal Night and we came back to a wild wild party that we did not expect. Marcos, John and I hooked up with Tommy and we hung with Lesley and a Melissa and Matt and then when we got back, like I said there was a massive party going down.
But it was at this place that I met the two coolest babes I've met in Chicago and maybe just about my whole life. Real artists, who live in their art, real fans of Iggy and best of all Andy Warhol. In fact I was amazed to hear they are throwing a Factory Party in Edie's Loft. They are going as far as to do everything in silver. Their names are Shena Shanell and Paige and NO SHIT they totally fucking rock. They have their own styles and are open honest and un-offended.
I cannot wait to get photos of them to share with all of you. I know they were taking some of us all together that night so maybe those will pop up.
I didn't get any sleep at all that night and we had to pick up more of my stuff and then play kick ball. Well I had to sit it out because I would have had a stroke this day. So I called the ladies and after we were in the midst of the game they came walking down the boulevard, Paige in a short dress white with cherries patterned on it, and a big black at, and Shena Shanell in a dress as well. And we sat on a blanket drinking beer and I'm sure it looked like I was the luckiest man alive and the envy of everyone on the field. But we are friends and getting along famously. Fiends prepare to see a lot more of these babes. After the game we returned to Street Side and then for some reason I found myself at the Pontiac Cafe the same bar who lost the kick ball game to the Street Side Homicide.
I slept early that night and spent all day Monday biking all over this city. And for the first time in my life got a cell phone. Something I swore I'd never do. The I finally ate at Kelsey's, went and had wings at Street Side, then went to a party at Ranallis where drinks we $1 and tried to go to Neo but Mr. RUDE was so shitty we had one drink and left. However the party at Ranallis was a Hawaiian Hula theme and they had grass skirts etc. Laura and Rachael wore them and danced around John, Marcos and I. And we had a total blast there. So it made up for the rudeness being displayed by that guy who hates us for being us.
