I leave for NY tomorrow. & The Tribeca Film Festival starts on Wednesday. So many amazing submissions, screenings, director’s panels, and writers panels- Can’t wait!!!


Been in LA for over a year and I’m still such an east coast snob.

"the people here are stupid"
"everything is so slow"
"why does everything close at midnight?"
"no dunkin donuts?"
"so… what else do you guys do? other than hang out at the beach"
"everyone here is so short"
"I read that in 4th grade…"
"But is that really your life aspiration?"

Every day, people are straying away from the church and going back to God.

Anonymous asked: I know you're not religious but which of the 7 sins do you think are most harmful or detrimental to ones self?

I don’t believe any of them are negatives in moderation, outside of maybe envy.

The one I view as the worst is ‘Sloth’. Not in the sense of spiritual laziness or carelessness. But general laziness. I’m a firm believer in the saying — ‘Laziness will bring you pain’.

There is a false modesty, which is vanity; a false glory which is levity; a false grandeur, which is meanness; a false virtue, which is hypocrisy, and a false wisdom, which is prudery.

— Jean de La Bruyère

Anonymous asked: who do you think are some underappreciated models as far as tumblr goes?

  • Daria Werbowy
  • Angela Lindvall,
  • Audrey Marnay
  • Nadja Auermann.
  •  Helena Christensen (no one gives her any love on here which really blows my mind)
  • Eva Herzigova (although I hope to be in the process of changing that)
  • Kirsten Owen
  • Carmen Kass (we should all have multiple tags dedicated Just to her)
  • Bridget Hall
  • Anja Rubik (and this entire ‘she’s too skinny’ argument, OK because I’m sure Magdalena is at a weight approved by the saturated media masses)
  • Natalia Vodianova

Ok I forgot

  • Malgosia Bela
  • Stella Tennant
  • Maggie Rizer

Anonymous asked: What do you think of Daphne Groeneveld, Magdalena Frackowiak, Natasha Poly?

Poly is flawless in every regard. Perfect for editorial modeling. Perfect for commercial modeling. Perfect in general.

Magdalena is perfect too but I prefer her runway appearances and her candids to her editorial work. I don’t think she’s a bad model by any means.

Daphne has grown on me. I used to think she looked like a dolphin. She kind of does but I like it. The tragedy being that as soon as I learned to appreciate her appeal — she basically disappeared.

Anonymous asked: Whats your opinion on Lindsey Wixson?

I used to find her extremely overrated. She has grown on me a little bit as I think she is actually interesting looking. She’s still not one of my favorite models but she willingly or unwillingly allows for entertainment at her expense and I can always appreciate that.
