Another Steely Dan reference: Tina Chow of Mr Chow

I lived the LA fast life. I dined at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills when tables weren’t available. Mr. Chow has several international locations. His last wife died of HIV and was a supermodel. His new wife, Tina, is from Korea and was profiled in Sunday’s New York Times Style section. She gave up a boutique designing career to marry her husband. She is now a philanthropist, mainly a patron of the arts. Her galas include guests like Vogue’s Anna Wintour, Jude Law and other A listers.

In Steely Dan’s “Glamour Profession,” which I think is off the “Gaucho” album, he refers to dinners “At Mr. Chow’s.” Now that’s a reference only understood by those ‘in the know,’ which at the time, I sort of was. We went with Jerry Moss, the A of A&M, and his wife Annie, a former supermodel as well. She later took up a philanthropic cause of her own, saving the Whales. Music is everywhere and depressed or manic, it gets through. It’s when it doesn’t that I know I’m in real trouble.

Steely Dan again, at least I’m not the only one tormented as hell. And that’s a relief

“At night you hide from the madman you’re longing to be. But it all comes out on the inside, eventually.”

from “Here at the Western World” on “The Royal Scam?” I’m not sure. But Steely Dan..even tho I’m an alternative/indie chick, will always have a special place in my heart for their hedonism to escape the demons that haunted them. I’m not the only one living with a ghost for a soul.

“You’ve got this” video for IBPF, Healthline by me. First ever storyboard!!

our video has been too large a file to put in emails, etc. But we’re working on ‘smushing’ it. Hopefully it will be approved and be put on the aforementioned Link.  No, wait, it looks like it went through.  Don’t let anyone tell you different, we are really creative. We make great cameramen, editors, directors of photography..writers, comics, actors. the works. The deal is to stay healthy if possible. And outthink the thinkers. All they do is think, anyway. They are not us.
