THIS PHOTO-SHOOT TOOK PLACE IN AUGUST, SO THINGS WERE STILL SOMEWHAT BUSY ON THE BEACH, AND TIME PLAYED A BIT LARGER ROLE THAN, PERHAPS, IT SHOULD HAVE. FOR SOME REASON, THE IMAGE IS STILL VERY VIVID IN MY MIND (THIS WAS BEFORE DRIVING TO SALISBURY FOR THIS PHOTO-SHOOT)... I WAS ON THE BEACH IN OCEAN CITY... I WAS SCHEDULED TO WORK WITH SOMEBODY THERE... I WAITED... AND SET UP, AND WALKED AROUND... AND WAITED AND WAITED AND WAITED... AND NO ONE SHOWED UP... IT WAS STRANGE... I WAS ON THE BEACH AT THE END OF THE BOARDWALK (27TH ST.)... NO ONE WAS... WORKING... THERE... MEN AND WOMEN AND CHILDREN WERE SITTING AROUND... SITTING... WITH THEIR SUNGLASSES / GOLF SHIRTS / TANS ON... I WAS... WORKING / WAITING... NO ONE SHOWED UP... IT WAS STRANGE... THAT WAS BEFORE GOING TO SEE LELA (I CAN'T FORGET IT)... ON MY WAY BACK TO THE CAR, I CAME ACROSS A PIECE OF ELECTRONICS EQUIPMENT THAT I HAD A PHOTOGRAPHIC NEED FOR, FOR A POSTER IMAGE TO A JESUS AND MARYCHAIN VIDEO I WAS WORKING ON, SEPARATELY... I STUMBLED UPON IT... IT WAS A BROKEN TELEVISION IN THE BACK OF A FAIRLY TYPICAL, STUDENT-ORIENTED, OCEAN CITY BEACH RENTAL TYPE HOME (DRY-ROTTED WOOD... BLUE CHIPPING PAINT... GARBAGE ON SANDY CONCRETE......) AND THEN... THE T.V. I NEEDED TO PHOTOGRAPH... PERFECT! (I THINK I WAS, LIKE, CRAWLING ON THE GROUND TO GET THE RIGHT... ANGLE?... OF THE BROKEN T.V.... MUST HAVE REALLY BEEN A BEAUTIFUL SCENE)... IN ANY CASE, FROM THERE I CROSSED THE RT. 50 BRIDGE AND WAS ON MY WAY TO LELA'S. SHE'S A PERSONAL TRAINER BY DAY, I BELIEVE... IN VERY, VERY, VERY LONG AND DETAILED MESSAGES, I HAD RELAYED TO HER MY IDEA FOR A VIDEO TO A SONG BY THE BEASTIE BOYS CALLED COOKY (PRONOUNCED COOKIE) PUSS, AFTER THE CARVEL NOVELTY ICE CREAM CAKE... THIS SONG, YOU SEE, THERE'S REALLY NOT THAT MANY SONGS LIKE IT... TO SAY IT'S, OVERLOOKED?... THAT'S AN UNDERSTATEMENT!... IT IS... NONEXISTENT...... HOW ODD... IT'S A SONG THAT SHOULD BE (GASP!) MENTIONED IN SCHOOL, OF ALL PLACES...... TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, IT'S SOMETHING OF AN ARCHETYPE FOR THE "FORMATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS MODEL IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS"... NOTHING LIKE IT, I TELL YOU... THIS SONG... CHANGED THE BEASTIE BOYS... LIFE / CAREER... FOREVER... NOTHING LIKE IT... (THEY CHANGED FROM A MORE PUNK STYLED ACT TO HIP HOP WITH... THIS SONG, I GUESS)... PRESTO... SUCCESS... GOOD PHOTO-SHOOT... VERY STIRRING IMAGES... IN THE VIDEO BELOW, YOU "HAVE GOT" TO LOVE THE IMAGES OF GIUSEPPE ANDREWS FROM CABIN FEVER AS DEPUTY WINSTON (I WILL WRITE THIS SENTENCE A TOTAL OF THREE TIMES)...YOU "HAVE GOT" TO LOVE THE IMAGES OF GIUSEPPE ANDREWS FROM CABIN FEVER AS DEPUTY WINSTON... (I SAY) YOU "HAVE GOT" TO LOVE THE IMAGES OF GIUSEPPE ANDREWS FROM CABIN FEVER AS DEPUTY WINSTON (IN THIS VIDEO)... LET'S SEE... THAT ABOUT SAYS IT!... THERE IS NOTHING "UNTOWARD" IN MY INTERPRETATION OF THE MEANING OF THIS SONG... NOTHING LIKE THAT GOING ON HERE... IT IS THE BEASTIE BOYS... JUST GOOD, OLD-FASHIONED HIGH QUALITY MUSIC MAKING... LELA LOOKS VERY LOVELY IN MY OPINION... THERE IS A LINK TO HER ACCOUNT, IF YOU GO TO HER IMAGE SET IN THE PHOTO PORTION OF MY PORTFOLIO AT THIS LINK: http://www.modelmayhem.com/mlkhny (FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, I'VE ALSO LINKED THE IMAGE IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER TO THIS ADDRESS), FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION CONCERNING HER MODELING PREFERENCES...
