I’m on a plane right now and I want to share with you a series of quotes from the person sitting next to me. These are actual things he said on a cell phone conversation before the flight attendant made him shut off his phone.
"Bro that sounds incredible, I am dying to go to sorority parties, that’s all I want to do. 100%. That’s my shit."
"Well, whatever man, she took her eye off the ball. She was crushing on Cronuts. I guess her rationale is, I own central London, therefore I can be fat."
"The maid is not the smartest cookie."
"She’s like five overdoses away from her target weight. Just between me and you. Don’t even tell Heather!"
"You and me, man. We have like, sick bods!"
"Keep killing it and I’ll update you on everything in New York. Lots of love bro!"
"Link me to those peeps and we are going to crush it when I come back to New York."
Anyway, so this guy is FUN! Also, we are seated in an exit row so he’s a potential hero as well!
Went to work (magazine and newspapers for week $26). Lou Reed called and that was the drama of the day. He’d come back from a successful tour, he was a big hit in LA, but he said Rachel had gotten kicked in the balls and was bleeding from the mouth and he wanted the name of a doctor. Lou’s doctor had looked at Rachel and said that it was nothing, that it would stop, but Lou wanted another doctor to check. I said I’d get Bianca’s. But then Lou Called back and said he got Keith Richards’ doctor to come over. I told him he should take her to the hospital. I was calling Rachel “she” because she’s always in drag but then Lou call him “he.”

I am overjoyed to get this message from you! I am such a huge fan of your work and can’t tell you what an impact “Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains” has had on my life. I would love to interview you sometime, either for my podcast or for something in print. I hope you see this reply. Thank you so much for writing!
