N.Y.C. Baby!!! What a fun trip. So many magical people I that enjoyed my time with. As Clark would say it was totally “Wild Style”.
We where so blessed this year to get some really amazing footage of the final Bowiemas. I know that I was pleased to watch the madness of what had happened that night because in real life it flashed by and only seemed to last for ten minutes!!
Patrick Wright is an amazing videographer and I was so happy when he consented to come and film the last bowiemas for us!! He came the night before and filmed us setting up and was back the next night to film the whole party. I enjoyed bumping into him and hearing all the wonderful updates of what he had caught on film. I remember at the end of the night we where talking and he said “I’m not quite sure when I should leave. I feel like there’s going to be a point where everyone will be just so wasted…” Maybe twenty minutes later I was standing with him again chatting while a certain individual was yelling at me for not serving him anymore alcohol, the angry party goer ended up bending over and mooning me while yelling my name attempting to get my attention. Patrick and I looked at each other and he said “You know there’s an old saying ‘when someone moons the bar tender its time to leave the party’. I think I’m going to go…” And then he left.
A few weeks later he sent me the most amazing film he had made of that wild night!! Thanks so much Patrick!!!
We where also lucky enough to be sent a video from a party goer one Jeanie Derange. Her film blew Lyle and I away. We where in awe at all that we saw and how insane they night looked for everyone.
Theres some talk of other footage being sent our way and we will certainly share them when we get them.
