  • a la Therry Richardson ;)

  • OMG! Happy birthday Lance indeed :)

  • okay, my mind is boggling.

  • And while Lance is celebrating his birthday and our fearless leader is up to his armpits in beautiful women and Rio, I am sitting at my institutional desk on a cold and rainy and very raw day here in our happy little burg up to my armpits in crazy people. By crazy I do not mean charmingly eccentric or quirky or even just unconventional thinkers; I mean the mentally challenged, or, in this particular case, the reality challenged. It is very difficult to carry on a meaningful conversation with someone who is not all there, or worse, has to share his all there with several people only he can hear. The other thing that annoys me about crazy people is the way they assume that all non-crazy people are hard of hearing; I hear just fine, thank you very much, and I don’t need to have this loon screeching his requests into my ear from two feet away.

  • HOT over there.. have a happy day, Lance :)

  • Happy birthday Lance, no chance of sneaking past the day; not with David on your case.

    Akaky, my sympathies – to both of you.

    Mike.

  • WOW!
    too awesome!
    Happy Birthday to Lance :))))

  • Well, happy Birthday, Lance, and a lot of good things happening to you until the next one (and after).

    BTW, SCOOP!!!!! Panos is going to Madrid and Greece to work on the “indignados” movements over there. While doing so, he will conduct an online workshop in WORDPRESS, and we can all profit from it, for the modest price of 0.29$. Yes, that’s 29 cents, 1.79 cheaper than DADdy! Details from Panos coming up.

    We already know, to each his own, his tattoos and slang language is totatlly relevant to his photography, and never leave him anywhere he goes!

    :-)))

  • Hey AKAKY my man,

    Has it ever occurred to you that the reason you are spending your days in the mold pit and not down in warm and lusty Rio shooting for National Pornographic with stars in your eyes and surrounded by some of Brazil’s most toothsome maidens in their colorful native garb (I know you go for that stuff!) just might have something to do with your POLITICS???

  • Happy birthday, Lance!!!
    And David, lol, I think you really arrived at your one-month-in-Rio-destination.

  • a civilian-mass audience

  • LANCE,

    I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting you, but still widh you a Happy Belated Birthday!

    HERVE,

    Are you sure Panos is not charging 69 cents? (coz, you know, he just has to go there :-)

  • a civilian-mass audience

    …are these gonna be…69 euro cents…or dollar cents?

    hmmm…:))))))

    Viva JUSTIN !!!

  • CIVI,

    I’m sure that you’ll have to ask him, but with everything going Rio lately it might 69 Brazilian centavos!

    No, I don’t, Sidney. I generally ascribe my being stuck here on a vile day most dank and drear listening to loonies babbling like brooks instead of being in Rio practicing my Portuguese, such as it is, with Renata and Roberta to the fact that I do not have the money to go to Brazil and probably never will have. That I will not have the cash is entirely my fault. It’s not like the ghost of Jorge Amado didn’t tip me off; I just ignored the tip. In 2002, I had just finished Mr. Amado’s War of the Saints, a book that ends with the word Sarava, when I fell asleep Mr Amado himself, who had died only a few months before and who looked about as healthy as a Communist ghost can look, if I remember this correctly, appeared to me in a dream and let me know that a horse called Sarava was running in the Belmont Stakes that year and that I should bet the ranch on the horse to win. Excited by this tip from beyond the grave, I consulted with my brother, a man for whom betting on the ponies is a type of religious experience and whose bible is The Daily Racing Form, who told me that the odds against Sarava were 70-1. Frightened by such numbers, as I am not a horseplayer, I did not bet the ranch or anything else on Sarava, who then proceeded to win the Belmont Stakes and ended War Emblem’s bid to be the first Triple Crown winner in damn near thirty years. I have had no further visitations from Mr. Amado, who is probably pissed off that I did not heed his advice, and who probably sees no further need to help right wing gringoes go to Brazil.

    Paul, I have not tried silver bullets, only garlic and wooden steaks, which are high in fiber, unlike steaks from cattle.

    Mr. Harvey, if you want to send dirty pictures along, that’s fine with me, although the office mates will not be taking a look; there is a high percentage of women working in this office and I would just as soon not have to explain why I am looking at such pictures on the public’s dime.

  • This has to be the best Bday shout out.. total shock.. and quite a bit of awe. Dreaming of all things Rio here.. thank you David, Renata, and Roberta!!! Much love from Austin!

  • Akaky…

    You should try hanging a pentacle talisman medallion as protection at work, should keep you relatively safe from those who are crazy.

  • Paul, I’ve tried lots of things, but so long as we let the public into the building, I’m screwed.

    Sidney, this is as close to Rio as I am ever going to get: http://vimeo.com/18826126
