california love

i couldnt be more happy with the podcast 

and blog post for todays episide of Hear in LA

it’s with a guy i used to work with at E! 20 years ago who is a photographer and curator who helps shine a light on other photographers

it’s crazy to think i would not have ever seen any of these pictures if it hadn’t been for Michael, and yet here they are and they’re beautiful and im so happy to help him help others

michael also happened to tell me about his neighbor who is a character and you will be hearing about him very shortly too

make the greatest black leader a white sculpture

do you know how many things i wanna do

i see a picture like this and i wanna be a photographer

i go to a church and i wanna be a preacher

i go to the horse track and i wanna talk to every person there and tell em im not leaving until you tell me something killer

but lets face it, i probably only have 75 years left on this warranty

and the planet probs only has 50.

which is why ozzy keeps making singles.

amber and i had a fight today and i was yelling in the car.

this man was crossing the street walking his dad and he looked at me.

like he was trying to see if he knew me. maybe he did.

it made me wonder if famous people get that look all the time.

but not from strangers of fans but someone they are in the same circles

and theyre all, wait is that fritz coleman yelling at his bae

i was so angry i wanted to get out of my car and say

take a picture it lasts longer.

but nothing lasts.

i interviewed a great photographer yesterday for work

just be coolnext week we will publish it.

he’s lived, in many ways, a blessed life, and i told him that

he didnt deny it.

he got to hang and work with warhol, mae west, groucho

i asked him about new technology and did he adapt to it.

he said he had to, but he also leaned on his assistants to do that sort of thing.

he said he loves the dark room and thinks all young photographers should spend some time in there

i asked if he still spends time in there.

he said no.

i asked if there was ever a picture that he didn’t take?

he said i dont know what you mean.

i said at the oscars this year i was running around trying to find leo dicaprio so i could snapchat him real quick for the kids, and as i was looking i saw sly stallone at the bar

and he looked totally dejected because he didnt win in his category

it had been 40 years since he was last nominated. and there he was with a beer on the bar. not drinking it. and he was looking right at me with his sad eyes

and he was all alone. and i could have taken the picture and it would have been great

the ultimate agony of defeat pic, but i felt so badly for him that i didnt take it.

i said have you ever been in that situation?

he said, yes, i was once having dinner with audrey hepburn…

if theres one thing i love love love love love about my job and hollywood and beverly hills and LA

it’s that people can always top my stories.
