Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds. You mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you’re getting fat, and maybe it’s been raining too long. You’re just sad, that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid, and you don’t know what you’re afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
I don’t think Sonic Youth has featured on this blog yet, which seems a bit of an oversight on my part. Not that, now I’m mentioning them, I can think of anything intelligent to say.
When I was 17, I thought New York City sounded like Washing Machine & women in New York City were like Kim Gordon. “& she said honey, here’s a quarter. Go put it in a washing machine.“, “Yeah, I take my baby down to the street & I buy him a soda pop.” etc. So that’s another part of my mental image of the city, gruff & swirly guitars & short dresses & biceps.

“Urban anthropologists Andy & Carolyn London interview some of New York City’s more overlooked citizens.”
Danced to this with Kerry, late one night / early one morning in Wellington, a couple of months ago – one of the highlights of a slightly patchy appearance by DJ Vadim. Danced some more, then went for 4am falafels and back to K’s for sleep.

My blogging ability seems impaired this morning, I can’t work out how to embed a Vimeo video into this entry. Check it out here: Fifty People, One Question: New York from Crush & Lovely on Vimeo. It’s fifty beautiful people in New York talking about their wishes for the day.
We asked the same question and it took us somewhere new. Gone were the lazy days of summer. A cool breeze swept the streets with leaves under foot and the familiar hustle of the city. Welcome to autumn in New York.
