Reed: it was a paulaner salvatorie or something
Dirk: yr rich now!
Reed: how’s ol’ josh?
he seems alright
i didnt talk to him for very long
it was at a show
Reed: nah, it’s just that all beer is the same price, $15 for a glass full, so, you might as well get the best
Dirk: just like the ice cream
there is a place here called Dumbo.
but it’s really called D.U.M.B.O.
have you been there?
it’s a neighborhood
know what it stands for?
Reed: down under the manhattan bridge overpass
sounds like hobo town
Dirk: isnt the “down” superfluous
Reed: super fluid
Dirk: youve made this up
Reed: i guess I’ll never know for sure, but you can find out… I mean, if I look it up, I could just be making up whatever I’m looking at tooo, then I’ll never know for sure. not anything
hey, i saw that movie
Dirk: there’s this xtra shitty yves kilne exhibit at the fw modern
Reed: wow, xtra shitty, that sounds really shitty
Dirk: that guy was a d*ck
there was one good thing
Reed: i know
Dirk: a big floor full of cobalt blue dust
Reed: i saw the pat stier exhibit
and I saw the new stuff by charles ray
Dirk: is it good
Reed: what was that modernist painter’s name who was bruce something or other and he painted big vertical lines or orangish colors on dark backgrounds?
i dont think he did that
Reed: yeah, a lot like that, but pat steir style so it was weird. And I love pat stier. but these weren’t so good, but one of them was, or two maybe
Dirk: i never was excited about pat stier
Reed: HYPERLINK “http://www.colchsfc.ac.uk/art/Barnett%20Newman%20-%20Adam.jpg” \t “_blank” http://www.colchsfc.ac.uk/art/Barnett%20Newman%20-%20Adam.jpg
Dirk: oh ok
Reed: yeah, I dont think i’m in good company liking her, but i think you should give her another chance maybe… I love how anti-commercial her art is, and how it’s turned commercial, it really walks a great area to think about in art
Dirk: are you renting a painting studio
Reed: and plus, it’s like graffiti or trash or automatic painting, but it’s also like religious painting
Dirk: where abouts
Reed: i don’t know, i’m in the market
Dirk: i thought you were coming back here
Reed: there’s a room that’s 20 feet by 20 feet that I might rent to live and paint in
Dirk: it has windows
Reed: I’m only going to come back when i have enough money to get tim to record me
tons of windows, it’s a corner room I think
tim might record you for free
just say “look, tim, yr gonna record me for free, alright”
did bobcat send you the windmill band stuff
Reed: well, I think I need to pay him so it will get done in a timely manner
and plus, it’s his job and he should be able to make money from it
no he did not
Dirk: no, see, you just say”tim, look, were gonna finish this right f*cking now, alright”
Reed: but his poor hand
Dirk: his hand is fine
it’s just gross is all
as soon as the skin grows back…fine
Reed: i want to see it now
Dirk: it looks normal
Dirk: he just cant bend it
Dirk: yeah its f*cked up
hey i saw that bob dylan movie
i never knew bob dylan was so sexy
Dirk: when are you leaving
Reed: Well, I’m really really sick right now, so, when I’m well enough to drive
or the 1st
but if it’s the 1st, and I’m still sick, I’m just going to drive to a camp site and stay there till I get better
Dirk: sounds alright
Reed: yeah, I’m excited
Dirk: i knew it was gonna work out
Reed: don’t say that yet
Dirk: things are finally looking up
are you driving alone
Reed: yeah, like men should do
Dirk: i hear that
Reed: I was talking to this guy about why he doesn’t live with women and he said
you know what I do when I get up in the morning?
Whatever the fuck I want!
Dirk: ive heard that one
thats probably not true though
Reed: yeah, it’s perfect for people who don’t know how to communicate their needs
Dirk: not yr story- rather, that he does what he wants
Reed: no shit
no one does
first thing in the morning, I love to kill something big
Dirk: that billionaire guy who builds spaceships probably does what he wants
Reed: Yeah, counts gold doubloons
Dirk: “make me look like kenny rogers” he says to his plastic surgeon
