Nashtown - Nashburg - Nashville-town

Nashville-town
is my favorite city
.... ever!

...And that is how it is.

I love how diverse this place is.... You have the Grand Ol Opry on the left, a bunch of skinheads with metal in their faces on the right, seventy Bible preaching churches sprawled out in front of you, and someone swing dancing to bluegrass tunes in your footsteps.... It is new, fresh, it has history, culture, you want to whistle a tune - the place is full of style....

Things have been looking up..... you might have guessed that last month was probably the most painful month of modeling I have ever had. Very few jobs, modeling rates got cut, tons of lame-ass photographers, weird sleeping arrangements, bad experiences, bad weather, negative people ruining my mindstate.... to make it worse, while in Birmingham, my laptop crashed. I woke up horrified to find the Blue Screen of Death staring me in the face. Spent all day in the comp-shop, freaking out that my entire life would be lost (...schedule, contacts, photos, writings, letters, gps, my family slides...)..... It was like a family member was in surgery. All alone in Alabama, without a schedule, without a purpose, a total mess......

But hell yes! Those mother-fuckers fixed it!!.... which means that, I once again have purpose!! The next month is going to go by fast... It is a good mix of old-time friends and talented photographers (which is all this girl needs...)

What else is new? Hmmmmm..... I did not get to see any tornadoes.... but I did meet a guy who named his Fish "Pig" and that just makes me giggle....

Isobel Wren bought a website called fivenakedmodels.com (cause she is brilliant) and I joined in to be one of five models who will doing a weekly update on youtube .... it is just going to be a dorky fun thing which you will be able to participate in - asking questions, daring models, seeing what a day for us is like, stuff like that. I have been filming some footage. The teaser is going to go up next week.... so stay tuned for that.....

Shooting with Mike Hickey tomorrow for Garage Glamour..... You have no idea how awesome this guy is, not just as a photographer, but as a person..... he is one of those people you wish you were related to because you hope that their awesomeness will rub off on you.... oh I Want to Be Like Mike.

Glad to hear that your laptop was resurrected from the BSOD....

I'm having an annoying evening with a network storage drive here - and your new update made my night.

Thanks.

Cool place to hang out in Memphis is the "Flying Saucer". Cool people, good music, great beers. Near Beale Street.

Been there a lot in the past year for business. Sorry, I don't know anywhere to stay for free.

I'll be in Miami that weekend. Any good spots to hang out there?

London Andrews said...

I am not a big fan of Miami... : )

But if you want things to do, google "top 10 things to do in Miami" - that is how I usually figure out where to go. : )

OMG. you are talking about me! I am so in love with you. lol.

I'm glad you're feeling better. Kinda bummed that your travel schedule doesn't have you slated for Boston until like, the end of the year...and by then I'll probably have moved!

OMG.... Isobel.... When you first commented on my blog, I felt all fuzzy inside... : ) Perhaps I'll catch you on the road...!

Hot Springs and the Mob - it is a town outside Little Rock, where the mob used to go to take advantage of the Hot Springs... they also raced thoroughbreds (which is still done today) ... the place has a lot of history, not all good history, but it seems like a nice stop off....
