This week I am an assistant stylist and I am in Maryland.
Right now in Annapolis.
Even the strip malls are nautical here.
Anyway, I’ve been in Maryland for about a week now. Not that I’ve seen much more than a hotel room and a casino tour. You see being a stylist is just another job that doesn’t live up to the hype. Instead of strolling onto set for a few hours to make models look fabulous and then jetting off to fancy lunches with designers, a stylist spends 16 hours a day sorting crappy clothes. Putting them on hangers. Then putting them in bags. Then on hangers. Then on a model. Then on a hanger. Then into a bag.
Oh, there’s steaming and ironing. And getting asinine instructions and conflicting information.
For every moment of glory there are a dozen of downtrodden shame.
Pictures to come.
Here again with little agenda. Better than being east with the same agenda.but still..
“What is it?”
“A major award!”
I keep reciting this exchange from A Christmas Story. It’s the season, and I’m on an award trip myself. In LA. On a tv show set.
A major award!
Pics and more to follow.
I was only assistant camera on this, but the special effect dude wasn’t bad..

It’s damn cold driving towards Chicago. Who would have thunk it?
No heat in this beast doesn’t help one bit.
Still have some painting to do but it’s looking pretty good.
