On another note- sorry for the slacker approach to the blog. I just got back from 2 weeks in north county SD. Hopefully i have some decent images to post up but i had some major lo-fi technical issues so i am keeping my fingers crossed. I did get to spend a wonderful evening with Cher and Steve Pendarvis and I am hoping some images came from my time with them...Great people for sure!!!
Please come out to support the benefit if you are around!! many Thanks

a little polaroid image of my wandering's yesterday..
The Chelsea Hotel was between 1883 and 1885. At time of its construction it was the tallest building in New York. It was designed by the firm of Hubert, Pirsson & Company in a style that has been described variously as Queen Anne Revival and Victorian Gothic. Among its distinctive features are the delicate, flower-ornamented iron balconies on its facade, which were constructed by J.B. and J.M Cornell and its grand staircase, which extends upward twelve floors.
Notable residents - a whose who in the creative world:
During its lifetime Hotel Chelsea has provided a home to many great writers and thinkers including Mark Twain, O. Henry, Herbert Huncke,Dylan Thomas, Arthur C. Clarke, William S. Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Leonard Cohen, Arthur Miller, Quentin Tennessee Williams, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac (who wrote On the Road there), Robert Hunter, Jean-Paul Sartre, Thomas Wolfe, Charles Bukowski. Dylan Thomas collapsed in Room 205 at the Chelsea on November 9, 1953, and died a few days later in hospital.
Much of Hotel Chelsea's history has been colored by the musicians who have resided or visited there. Some of the most prominent names include The Grateful Dead, Tom Waits, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, Jeff Beck, Chick Corea, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Thunders, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Sid Vicious, Abdullah Ibrahim/Sathima Bea Benjamin, and Leonard Cohen.
The hotel has featured and collected the work of the many visual artists who have passed through. Philip Taaffe, Ralph Gibson, Robert Mapplethorpe, Peggy Biderman, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Robert Crumb, Jasper Johns, Edie Sedgwick, Claes Oldenburg, Vali Myers, Donald Baechler, Herbert Gentry, Willem De Kooning, Lynne Drexler and Henri Cartier-Bresson have all spent time at Hotel Chelsea.
Painter & ethnomusicologist Harry Everett Smith lived and died at the Chelsea in Room 328. The painter Alphaeus Philemon Cole lived there for 35 years until his death in 1988 at age 112, when he was the oldest living man. Bohemian abstract and Pop art painter Susan Olmetti creates paintings outside on the sidewalk during her frequent summer residencies at the hotel.

Lenny is the most reliable surf reporter that i have known. His first light report texts are terse and to the point, "waist- light wind... going". "ankle high..on shore... going".. Seems like the word, "..going" is always in the text despite the conditions. this guy loves surfing.
