Old skool, still the best skool,
There is nothing better than the British film industry
Like little islands of hope in a cruel world , one steps from a jaded reality into a fascinating fantasy
It's still a privilege
I love Shepperton's modest entrance hoarding
There is no need to boast
A real lion does not have to roar
I turned up to a new fitting looking like Duane Allman on acid and they thought I was already in costume, sheesh "Go through" costume said and with one final look over by the ultimate visionaries, I was handed my name plate, you know , to hold Infront, like those photos when you get arrested, "Umm, You do know" I said "these are my own clothes"
Much hilarity and embarrassment ensued, but it was all so kind of endearing one is made to feel right at home
I still have asmr shivers (unless I'm just coming back up on paroxetine) from being pampered and dressed in two costumes and finally coiffered like a bouffant loon.. and in this one i get to show my "special skills", as an artist
it's like getting paid to dress up...(just with a lot more pressure) but oh, oh how I long to get my hair cut out of this Victorian bob. I went in looking like Donny Osmond and came out looking like Barry Gibb. (at least that's what costume said, the beasts)
That said, Barry Gibb is a god, a God I tell you
I take nothing for granted, a job isn't done (and you haven't been "chosen') until the cheques in the post. I'm at that "easily replaced" level.
Dammit....just wait until my own film is finished in a year lol
My phone rang this afternoon and i swore it was a butt dial when i looked down. My number was still in @carmelsnow 's phone. So good to catch up w my not so little anymore buddy. She came by for some henna paste to take to #blackrockdesert. I met her #mama@crone_of_arc, aka burning man queen, YEARS ago at one of the first and last lake fests here in #oakland. I have hennaed them for chemo, burning man, parties and then some. So happy to have gotten to squeeze my carmie after so long. Have fun in the desert. Lift your nana's spirit to the afterlife. ❤🧡💛💚💙💜 #artmom#friendstilltheend#oldskool#artistas#artists#freespirits
