Three years out of college, working in the corporate fashion industry and living in New York City, I was frustrated and lost. I had great opportunities and a good amount of creative freedom in my job, but I wasn’t accomplishing everything I hoped.
New York City
Presenting: New York City, starring New York City.
The B train seems an innocuous creature until it takes you on a hellish joyride…
New York has been subject to at least nine monster attacks, one creature attack, two climate disasters, four geologic events, three epidemic events, three man-made disasters, two alien invasions, four asteroids and seven superhero battles. This is just the events portrayed in film. Comics, novels and other written works also have torn the city of New York apart until there was nothing but dust. This is an astounding amount of devastation. But again, what is the fascination?
In his debut collection of humorous essays, comedic artist and musician, Greg Scarnici delivers a set of eye-opening stories that revolve around growing up gay in NYC in the 1990s and working in the entertainment industry. Head-spinning stories about hooking up with construction workers and battling Gayface are interspersed with tales of getting high with the ‘midget’ from “Twin Peaks” and humiliating himself in front of Gina Gershon at a Saturday Night Live after-party, where he currently works as an Associate Producer.
Set in a time before his success on YouTube opened doors for him, I Hope My Mother Doesn’t Read This is a candid, shocking and just plain hilarious snapshot of an artist coming to grips with his sexuality and artistry at a time when LGBT artists were not as accepted as they are today.
New York City is just incredibly overrated, and yet people insist on acting like unpaid PR people for it. And these are the 10 biggest reasons why that’s bullshit. 1. People get overjoyed about the most objectively garbage living spaces.
Moving to New York is not easy.
Crowdfunding can be a test of market interest for a book project. And Colborne Communications’ Greg Ioannue says it also can be a way to pay for professional author services “without grabbing your savings.”
Only observing, passing through.
Pop the bubbly – I just celebrated a milestone: my two-year New York-iversary. That’s right, it’s been 24 months since I arrived in the Big Apple as a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed 21-year-old, fresh from college, desirous of adventure and yearning for new beginnings.
