They irritate the hell out of me.

Particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process (when they’re the one that contacted you).

More particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process who change their travels plans so that they don’t swing through your town after all and then try to convince you to travel to where they will be (at a 3-hour minimum drive).

Even more particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process who change their travels plans so that they don’t swing through your town after all and then try to convince you to travel to where they will be and then have the audacity to call the fee that they’re suddenly asking from you a “travel expense” (can there possibly be any greater an exercise in contradiction and irreverent hypocrisy?).

And most particularly, panhandlers in the guise of collaborators seeking some creative symbiosis until much later in the discussion process who change their travels plans so that they don’t swing through your town after all and then try to convince you to travel to where they will be and then have the audacity to call the fee that they’re suddenly asking from you a “travel expense”, after having told you during the initial discussion months ago: “As for working with you, throw in some gas money so I can be certain to make the drive regardless of the tennessee bookings I get, and I will be there.”

(Note: I was also kindly informed that I have secretly and subversively (unbeknownst to me?) treated essentially every model that I have shot as some throwaway ragdoll because I didn’t flash cash at them in order to properly honor their uniqueness as a model. Preemptive apologies to all of you for the likely delay, as it will take some time for me to mail all the “I’m sorry” cards I’ll need to now send.)

I’ve had an incredibly productive weekend (I realize it’s actually the middle of the week, but my  weekends, of late, are Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Most of the initial productivity involved menial stuff you probably couldn’t be less interested in (except, perhaps, for anyone who has previously driven with me…who might now be ecstatic to know that my car no longer gives you a full-body jiggle massage when braking!), but it ended with the better stuff.

I finally got to catch up with a friend who I hadn’t seen in too long (good drinks, good art, good conversations, good times). Part of that chapter involved being told that I must create a Tumblr…so I did. Then a shoot this afternoon that came from a chance poke of a friend of a friend on facebook which turned into me notching two more tallies onto the Tummy series (among a few other delicious images I’ll get to placing here…some of which [for the impatient] have already been upped to said new Tumblr account).

One more rum & coke (with Capt. Morgan’s Tattoo), and I’ll call it a very positive ‘weekend’. And here are more tummies for you.
