Hey tiger. I always wanted an industrialized portrait like a teen runaway model, such as this. Boy I have a way with words. I am trying to “give more” here okay please, will you just!
I love collaborating with these two. We have another project on the go after this and I won’t spoil it so don’t ask. Okay it’s a video. But that’s all you get so quit asking.
Two words: these shoes. Great wardrobe costuming Lizzy. I lucked out eh.
Sorry this post is a day late but who’s the boss here? I am.
“Samantha!!!!” (Can actually do Tony’s voice perfectly, ask me if you see me IRL).
How about this top hat right? How about seeing someone wearing it riding around their apartment on their bicycle? We went down the rabbit hole madhatter perhaps? Oh, artists. Am I right? I am. I always am.
The majority and basically only work Reggie did to altering or cleaning up these photos was just covering up my bruises. I crashed my bike before I went to Detroit. I was coasting on one peddle then decided to hit the brakes for some awful reason and toppled over but don’t worry, 20 people on the starbucks patio in liberty village saw it. I have never seen my facebook crowd so happy to hear this news before. So anyway these are my flawless Mariah Carey shiny legs. Thanks Reg.
When we pulled up to the Fisher body plant I spied this tire so after the shoot up on the roof during sunset and beyond I was like, “I am so funny. I am going to push this tire down the street.” So I did. Then Reggie made me get on it and I was not into it because I’ve rolled an ankle before and it is NOT fun. I got over being a wimp and we did some tire pedestal magic.
Now with hat. I watched Straight Outta Compton the night prior, so.. I might be Ice Cube now.
Sick opening track (one of).
You bet my hands were dirty after that.
Couldn’t resist. Sometimes it is true. But I think I am so addicted to my facebook feed and snooping on the lives of others that I actually LOVE people. We can talk about this later.
Not to expose the trick but when you shoot from below you get to look way taller.
Prepare yourselves for a racy one meow….
Trying to make some pot of gold leprechaun joke here.
Lizzy likes this one.
No lying but am I entering my Mariah Carey phase? Naw. It’s my Amy Schumer phase. Bitch I’m hilar. She gets away with what I have been doing for years and trying to get away with but never did. Well guess what? It’s “mah tahm now.”
I could have gotten my hair profesh done but I was too bagged my last day to get it together and go. Regretsy. Looks neat here tho. I am Aslan of Narnia.
Getting a little stretch in there. As we age it’s important to stay limber. See how I be rockin’ the big D hat? I grabbed it as a last second thing and glad I did.
Okay um we’re almost done for now. Saving all the rest for another post I don’t want to overwhelm y’all too much.
See you tomorrow with part two of Detroit. xo rlw (missed you).
It’s so hard to stop posting pics lol. I have a ton on my camera from brunch at the Whitney. Beautiful times.
I will not dispute the above charges on my person. okay x-oh for real tho!
So, my new muses Hawkhaus blew through town from Detroit and we had a wicked time collaborating together Saturday at The Hotel Germain. There will be future stuff too. You’ll see. I see the landscape of my future and it is dotted with a LOT TO DO. Muchos overwhelming. All good things though. If not now when right?
I started making art again. Part of it feels like a dare but commission requests have started coming in so there you go.
I did not wash my hair this day. Can ya tell!?! haha.
Lizzy and Reggie are also in a band called Konqistador which is a big deal or something but I don’t pay attention to stuff like that. I’ve dated fat cats and been extemely oblivious to their level of fame. Blows their minds wish you could see it.
L told me R read The Satanic Bible and it helped him. A fan put this on stage at one of their gigs. I am trying to think of something I gave them other than a headache. Ha.
Lizzy gave me one of her bodysuits for the road. Sweetheart.
I was Willow Smithing here.
My arse looks mega juicy here yowzers.
It’s about time I did some of this. Coupled by that. Thanks guys!
Took a ton of pictures yesterday as well. More to come when I have time.
If you are attention starved ride a bike in a bodysuit like this. Take your pants off down by the water too. Go for it!
The food was mighty tasty at School. We were misbehaved students a little.
It was a fabulous fun-filled time and anybody witnessing it from a neighbouring balcony was a lucky guy. I liked underwear party that I saw at one point over yonder of a guy and a girl totally ignoring us right back. Go Saturdaze.
This is my next business card. I love it. Thanks so much Mike Parker for letting me into your awesome box series. You guys should check out the rest here: the box. It was funny when we posed together for a pic, Mike SQUEEZED the hell out of the box with me in it like I was his. The assistant laughed and said wow you look happy. Mike was like I AM!
I felt like a piece of merchandise? But not in a degraded kind of way. There was so much subtext floating around the studio. Anyway you gotta have fun with it. I especially like the one where I look like Arnold crash landing on earth from wherever dimension terminators come from, the future? Yes. That. Geeks who read my blog must be like oh my god raymi ughhhh.
Raymi fetus. Newborn.
Lol. Could not resist.
Alrighty gotta scoot. Have a good one everybody and be safe!
LOL. As we all know I got in a box today with the parker and I have never felt so small and so zen before in my life. The braids came to me in an almost dream last night and I hoped to rememeber in the morning that I wanted to do that to my hair and how perfect was that? Thanks Mike!
I’ve been pretty busy this summer you may have noticed. Part of that is due to upping my Social Media PR girl/consult game and its been very eye-opening, learned, and rewarding. I absolutely love every new person I’ve met this summer, worked with, for, partied and/or networked with. As much as I chide myself as a loner, I am a total people person. I feed off people’s energies, creativity and their wisdoms. It only leaves me thirsty for more.
Move Up Realty are some of these such peoples. Two crazy Russians, Slava the broker and Jay the realtor. We got together to enjoy espresso and talk houses for sale in Toronto. Jay kay I don’t know anything about that. We discussed social media and blogging. Looks like they listened to me too cos they wrote a blog about our meeting! I am impressed. Check it out:
I am used to holding signs. We all remember my tenure as a ring girl. WHICH will be happening again soon in October. Excited.
Slava brought out their collection of magazine covers posed on. Blew me away. I love that stuff. They sure are savvy. You can see them better on Raymi Toronto.
Lane Studios is also located in the same unit. More on that later. I’m going for a photoshoot there this week, super excited. I’m getting naked in a box.
Okay who does a better handshake, Jay or…
We all went for food. Pure jokes and were so full afterward. Just wait til I yelp it then we’ll know what went down my mind is a black hole I can’t remember anything unless I am googling it which I sure as hell am not doing right now as I have NO TIME!
Louise and Jenn are talented women and a great team. We meshed very well together and I look forward to working with them in the coming months (and dare I say, years).
We had a lot of fun. Did I mention that yet already?
I look like sasquatch. No shame.
James Addison put me right in the slammer when we arrived after calling ahead and begging them to stay open. When 3 hot ladies showed up he didn’t stop cheekily Scotsman flirting with us until we left. Best time.
He was expecting for another gal to get in there after me haha.
This installation is being worked on, he said.
We look like an indie folk band. Bluegrass?
Throw away the key bro I got all the nudie mags I need.
We were all sweltering in there it was almost like a test to see how long we could last and it was worth it because there was just so much to discover. I love antiquing. We will definitely head back again. Mr. Addison keeps bees too so naturally he and Rob bonded over that. FATE
Paula is super nice! We will be featuring more of this experience on my new website very very soon. Sorry to cut it off I just don’t want crickets and tumbleweeds to blow through RTM is all.
Now here I am a week ago Wednesday the night I met Louise. Don’t get me started on how behind I am in blogging just do NOT.
Here I am scampering away from Louise all shy and she’s looking at the picture I just took of her, oh that fateful photo.
She was disappearing into this painting and I needed to get a picture of it and as it turns out she’s just as driven and high-energy as yours truly. Meant to be.
Spied this old world structure on our way to a meeting yesterday morning.
Some of what we shared with clients yesterday. Delicious.
