Greetings from Maryland!
We finished our D.C.-area shoot–including a full interview, and a silly outing to the Washington monument–in just one day, and were hoping to see the band Leftöver Crack with my friend Andrew, who we’re staying with here in Maryland, but as cruel fate would have it there was a malfunction in the greater-D.C. metro, and after about 45 sweaty minutes in an inexplicably unmoving train at the Shady Grove station in Gaithersburg we got word that the show had sold out (“they ran out of crack”), so now we’re here in Andrew’s mom’s lavish guest room leeching the wireless and pondering his awesome cats:
This cat could advertise store brand Fancy Feast.
We’ve actually encountered a great deal of vivacious felines on this trip, plus a few pretty awesome dogs, and I have to admit it’s one of my favorite aspects of the whole project.
Tomorrow we’re off to NYC. The driving is getting a bit tedious, but luckily Adena has a few episodes of The Ricky Gervais Show on her iPod, so we’ve been passing the time with Karl Pilkington.
Here are two more pictures from Ohio:
Jack bought an electric organ for $75 from Goodwill while we were there. Here he is jamming with Adena on his back porch.
