Studio Diary #12 November 17-Janaury 11th NEW!!! Monday Flew to NYC this afternoon for a photo shoot tomorrow for A+F's magazine to come out sometime early next year.Arrived at the hotel and hated it immediately.Scrawled "Your hotel is SHITE" on their guest questionaire and then immediately felt unreasonable and tore it up but really..........certain New York hotels have THE worst staff known to man.They piss me off.
Tuesday I managed to grin and bear a relatively short period of time today at the aforementioned photo shoot.I liked the photographer immediately.He played great music throughout and had a really wicked,cheshire cat smile which cracked me up.Once again I could hardly find anything that fitted in the clothing department because all the clothes are sample size....... meant for girls who model for a living.....and so one outfit after another had to be rejected due to unflattering sizing.I swear...I wanted to run from the room at one point yelling and screaming.Luckily I managed to keep my shit together by repeating over and over again in my head "You are a compassionate, intelligent woman who (some) people love and treasure.You cannot allow this experience to diminish your sense of self worth."I kept my shit together enough to find a great dress with WOnderWoman on the front.Then I put it on,got through the shoot and got the fuck out of there as fast as possible.
Wednesday Flew back from NYC today and now I am a complete zombie.Air travel is a killer.It squeezes your insides into all the wrong nooks and crannies,dries out your mouth,your skin,your hair,covers you in detrietus and infects you with bacteria. Eeeeuuuuuuch...........I HATE it.I have even started to use a hand sanitiser.I have become the kind of person I hate (Ha ha ha ahaaa....imagine that?) but nevertheless I use hand sanitiser with great enthusiam.I have become ill far too often from air travel that I have learnt my lesson.I am fighting BACK.
Thursday Well I guess it's about time I mentioned what the fuck is going on in Garbage these days.I'm sure you must have noticed the fact that there has been no mention of any studio shenanigans lately.We have decided to take the rest of the year off and resume activities in the New year.Late January to be precise. We've also elected to work with an outside producer for the first time in our decade of working together so we're pretty excited about that.We've chosen to work with John King, one half of The Dust Brothers who've worked with everyone from The Beastie Boys to Hanson to The Rolling Stones to Beck.He's a total sound geek so he's going to fit right in with the male side of the Garbage equation.As for his skills with neurotic,dominneering female artists....well that's yet to be seen.
Friday Avoid the papers like the plague.The good news was removed years ago.
Saturday Well it's now the 11th of January 2004 and I've suddenly realised I'd forgotten to send this diary in! Oh shit....nevermind. I'll post it right now. Diaries will resume ASAP I promise. I've been very remiss and for that I apologise.Perhaps if I were a little more candid in this diary of mine you would know why but suffice to say,I've had a lot on my mind lately and not had much get-up and go.This will be my New Year Resolution...........to be a better diarist. Happy New Year darklings.May it be a happy,peaceful one for you all.
Dance Away: And, Elvis Costello's wife is Diana Krall. Oh god, do I love the music of Diana Krall! And, I know it's an aspiration of Shirley to do the kind of music that Krall is doing. Shirley's mother was a 'big band' music singer (sample "Glenn Miller" big band)

thebestsalvia: Yes, Salvia like Mescaline but it is useful for meditation or tired less. But it's possible when you will be taken Salvia in right quantity.

david0913: Oh my, this is too deep to believe; the amount of conceptualization and depth of the discourse can only make me feel...what do you guys talk about on here, anything [sigh]?

orthodoxparadox36: I think that album actually saved, well, a few of the most important things in my life. I am eternally grateful for the way you all chose to dedicate your collective creative genius; something which makes it that much more special, not to mention, genuine!
