This week's celebrity sighting...
About once a week I pass some sort of film production in the city. This is usually a TV show, such as Third Watch (which filmed on my street), NYPD Blue, or Law & Order (I ran into the two detectives down in Chinatown one day). Sometimes it's a movie; my neighborhood is cheap to shoot in so production trucks are often present (part of a car chase in Vanilla Sky was filmed right around the corner; may I mention here that Tom Cruise is really freakin' short?).
Last night I went to 23rd Street to get tattooed (again) and whaddya know....Fat Joe and his posse (complete with Mr. P. Diddy) were filming a music video at a club right next door to the Hotel Chelsea. During my smoke breaks I went to watch the action; by 10PM or so they were filming outdoor sequences. My tattoo artist was hoping for some free publicity, but they didn't shoot any footage of the shop (as far as we know, that is).
Meanwhile, if you were going to perform a Drag King act, what song would you do it to? I'm making a CD for a friend who does drag, and the selections are rather curious. So do tell...what songs would you choose if you were doing a drag show?
