Weekend at The Spot.

There seems to be a very serious threat of me being discommunicated from the blogging community. A few people are kinda' pissed at me for not keeping up.

So, the weekend party marathon is over.
It started with the little show at the Lincoln Restaurant with Brady Novak hosting, Think Tank, Brido, CJ, Holmes, Eric Andre, Burns, Braunger, and 80's. Here are some favorites:

Eric Andre.

Mike Holmes as G-Carlo.

80's Clown.

It was a great show. It was the best; seeing those cats from NY and LA. Afterwards, we went over to Resi's, of course. Midnight, we celebrated K-rock's birthday with drinks and singing.

The entire time this weekend I alternately had "Funnin' Round In Clowny Town" and "Rosanna" stuck in my head.

The next day I had to work early and then rush over to Uptown to do a shoot with Tony Sam and about six other people for a project they're doing. I didnt want to upload the pictures onto Flickr for "copyright" reasons. I really need to get seperate, private hosting account so I can keep all my stuff and only allow certain people to view. Here are a couple I especially like...

There was an old foagie by the mural where we were shooting and I was prompted to take a picture of him. Check out Ol' Red and his ice:

Is that a charm bracelet?

After going home and uploading, being somewhat satisfied, I got ready and ran back to Uptown to The Spot for the Blerds party. Finally an event with every. single. Blerd. present. No camera. I was excited to take over photo duties with Kristy's little shooter, which was fine cause' I wanted to enjoy myself without worrying about my camera. My little compact is still being fixed anyway...

This is probably my favorite picture of the entire weekend:

Nothing special, just your typical "party" picture, but there's so much...life! Ahahha. Kinane.

I made the decision that Mark Vana should have played Young Joker instead of Heath Ledger.

My favorite Mikes in the whole wide world:

Sunday celebrated TJ's birth, his new pilot and his leaving for LA. There was a surprise visit from Josslyn! We got to see the pilot and there was an open bar from 9:30-12:30.
Steve Heisler gave me tips on how to get double the amount of drinks (at a time) from the open bar. Haha. He was a nice addition to the party, too. I even got to see Thomas Middleditch for the first time in forever!

It was too much fun having all those great people around at once. I was telling Kristy that I dont think one night was better or crazier than another. It was all nicely condensed into one great weekend. At one point on Sunday I wanted to hug and kiss every single friend at the bar.

There are alot of changes going on, already. People are moving in with people you would never expect (Kinane and Cheney? Cool). People moving back home or to LA. It's all good stuff, but I cant help but feel super disconcerted. It'll be a dry scene again, which I hear is never fun.
We'll see. By then, I may be going to less shows and doing more school work. =/

Oh, hey. If you wanna fun portrait done of yourself (if you're a comedian) let me know. I'm making steps to start my project and I want to get as many people as possible involved. The idea is to shoot comedians outside of the standup venues, with each portrait expressing something the comedian loves. Something that might fuel their bits. I have a list of about 22 comics with ideas as to where and what we can shoot.

I like having this camera, it's a great new challenge. I'm learning to take less pictures at shows (which is good) and I feel excited to start other stuff.

For some reason the picture of the old guy reminds me of The Jesus from The Big Lebowski.
