The amazing and gorgeous Sarah Mary (who also took the fab pictures) invited me out for a night o' CMJ fun on Tuesday night. Emphasis on the word "fun." For way too long my definition of fun was doing the NY Times crossword, watching "Meet the Press" or organizing my music files. But over the past couple of months, real fun came back to my life. I started laughing again. I started not to take things too seriously. I was going to see bands. Good ones. It was like my old life came back and my God was I happy to see it. This is a picture of me hangin' out in the DJ booth with Johnny Marr of The Smiths (my favorite band EVER) and Modest Mouse fame. He was rollin' out the tunes for the Spin magazine party at Beauty Bar. It's one of those pictures you look at when you are a little sad or down and think "yeah, I can and will have that kind of fun again." P.S. the shirt I am wearing is by Karen Zambos!
I know I look cool, calm and collected, but on the inside I was ready to pass out being so close to JM. EEEK!!!
