and if you didn't already know The Sarah Silverman Program is absolutely hysterical and definately my favorite show right now. Its the only show I actually watch every week.
Thursday nights at 9:30 on comedy central, they are going to start restarting the first 6 episodes now. it has already been signed for a second season.
1st episode - Introduction of all the characters 2nd - Sarah takes in a homeless man so that she can be a humanitarian 3rd - Sarah THINKS she has Aids and starts a full committee in just one day! 4th - Sarah takes a little girl under her wing so she can win the Little Miss Rainbow pagent through the little girl. 5th - Sarah falls in love with a lesbian cop. 6th - Random shit and random jokes, Oh and she has a one night stand with god, and he's black!!!!!
Monday I had school, Tuesday I had work, and then I had to drive to the city,
AND I GOT IN A BAD CAR CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3 lanes, 50mph, i'm in the left. it starts to snow, i am very aware of it. the snow starts drifting from the left side of the road, and so i didn't want to accidently go into it, so I move my week 2 inches to the right.
IMMEDIATELY I start to swerve across the middle lane and i could not control the car, the only thing I could thing of was "omg i am the cause of a huge car pile up!!!!" And I was on speaker phone with my sister amber, and she wouldn't stop talking. I smacked into what I thought at the time was a semi truck, but it was actually a tow truck. after hitting it from the front right of the car, i began to bounce off and swerve more and even worse. My car hit the truck with the right back near my gas tank, and flew back across the middle lane and the back of the car slammed into the cement wall.
I was COMPLETELY 100% alright, I couldn't believe it that nobody got hurt.
Anyways here is pictures of the damage. The driver of the tow truck was fine, and I have court an hour away in Maywood, IL tuesday, which sucks.
And then I had another photo intern/assisting thing on Wednesday. It was for Arlington Park Horse Racing. they are doing a 30 something special insert in chicago social magazine, and 4-6 pages is a fashion editorial. we had to attach fishing wire to her dress and blow air under her dress while she lept with binoculars. she had the riding hats in some shots, the whips, the straps. It was great, and the model was awesome! Interning is stressful tho it's fun to meet everyone. David is a hard worker and I am learning a lot, and I have to remember things ONCE and try and do it as quickly as possible. I have to do a lot of writing in my notepad. He can be hard at sometimes, but you know what? I remember things! Its hard because I don't know a lot of the equipment names, so when he says them I have to try and think of what it even is and find it. It's great experience and I am with good company
Oh and I found a great place to shoot outside today, its getting warmer, so I will have another shoot (with hailei most likely) at the end of the month.
And Scissor Sisters was on Friday, FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only dissapointments is that I didn't stay in front for the 2 hours of the opener, I would of had such a better time. And the people around me weren't that cool, and nobody seemed to like to dance a lot to them. I had a good time and got a lot of great photos and vids, not the best, but enough. I'll post those sometime.
at 10:08pm in 1987, my mother pushed me out of her dialated vagina, so please think of that at the appropriate time. LOL!
Alright so I got something REAL special for my birthday, AN ULCER ON MY CORNEA!!!!!! It hurt so bad! I got it from excessive contact use. I ALWAYS slept with mine in, and the last time, I hadn't taken them out for 2 months straight. I had to leave work early and go to my eye doctor at Lenscrafters. I got a perscrpition for the thjs little bottle of drops.
Other exciting news, I am dropping off my high-res CD at Elite Chicago tomorrow, on my birthday. Then I am going to hang out with lovely Megan B, the one who was in the wire hanger video for a second, The one that was screaming and I hit her thumb. She also let me use her apartment for my testshoot with Hailei.
ALSO!!!! I just got a message on myspace from a photographer, David Anthony. If you remember he gave me the Elite contact way back at Chicago fashion week. He invited me to be a 3rd assitant on a Baker's Shoe ad on Friday! How exciting. It doesn't pay but I will have the experience of working on a shoot with an art director and clients on set. How fucking awesome!!!
I'll tell you all how Elite liked the photos later.
I got connected with her because her mom comes into my friend Samantha's work, Carabou Coffee. Samantha recognized her when I was showing her some of the new faces on elitechicago.com, and she recognized her. I made a little business card and begged her to talk to Hailei the next time she came in.
WELL her mom came in, and was ticked. I contacted Marissa the head booker and set it all up, and wha-LA!! Hailei is one of their well known new faces and has gotten quite a few jobs! Basic Boutique has several of her photos.
Here are the digital tests, mind you the film ones I will be working on all day tomorrow, and these don't do justice to the real photos. She really was amazing and moved so well.
( the restCollapse ) I'll keep you guys posted, but from now on, I am an official Testshooter for Elite!
The finished product I really worked hard on these, and they may not look THAT different from the ones on myspace, but I finished retouching these and these are the final prints.
And guess what! Elite emailed me back (finally). They were really busy and didn't have their whole staff for some time now, but he is speaking with Jan (VP) and Marrissa (head booker) and scheduling me to shoot some of the new girls, FOR SURE. If I don't hear from him early next week, he told me to send him an email. He apologized and said.... ok you know what? I'll just post the damn thing
I'm working my ass off this week, I have a car insurance bill due and a whole bunch of shit.
And in Jessica Simpson's A Public affair it almost sounds like she says "ALL THE CAMELS COME OUT FOR A PUBLIC AFFAIR!" I was obsessed with this song after I saw the video over the summer, I bought the ringtone and played it countless times, rediculous I know.
And BTW, who has all seen the musical "Reefer Madness" ?? ITS AMAZING!
I seriously get like 2 comments a week on this video telling me how horrible I am!! But to be honest, my little brother was doing an interpretation and I was hyper. I think its endearing and a special tribute to a great man. No seriously, I really do think he's great, but people need to calm down.
AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE COMEDIANS, SARAH SILVERMAN! I was watching this with a black girl one time and she was like, "TURN THAT OFF, THAT IS RACIST, THAT IS RACIST" I'm sorry, but its hysterical and race is NOT mentioned ONCE in this video. How offensive is Dave Chappelle?
I cannot believe I wrote this, me and Brooke are HILARIOUS! I am at her house and we were looking through our old notes.
Take time to read it, its worth it.
Brooke, You offended me today. Your just jealous because the guys are starting to notice me more! Yeah, so what if I wore your clothes. Your the one that gave them to me, plus they don't fit you no more, fat ass. And as for the boob thing, it's not my fault I have low self esteem. Eversince I got them I've been moving up in the world because the managers at jobs want to sleep with me, and that makes me feel good about myself! I can shave Micheal (thats what I call him) if I want! It looks cleaner and is easier to upkeep it.
Fuck, who am I kidding, I had pubic lice and thats why I had to shave it and start over.
Now I only have one step for you.
1. Mind your own fuckin' business you jiggly small boob, no pubic lice or hair don't look good in your clothes so you have to give them to a transvestite 17 year old (almost) boy, BITCH!
<3 you Matthew
P.S. Thanks for the thongs!
Wow, I wish I was friends with myself so I could get notes like that!
I'll have the film ones scanned and retouched and ready for viewing. I will try and make sure i post them on here, but if you have myspace, on http://myspace.com/mattlakerphoto i will definately be posting them on the blog, so subscribe to it!
