So I met up with John and his friend and I actually had a great time. They were both really nice :)

I guess a lot of you will know who this dude is and a lot of you won't. His name is John Cameron Mitchell and he is a movie director. He has previously made a movie called Hedvig And the Angry Inch, and now he's in Europe promoting his new film Shortbus. Anyway he wrote to me online a couple of months back and told me that he liked my photos, and that he would like to meet up when he got here for the Stockholm Film Festival.

Well he's here now, and I met him and his friend James who is also in town. We went to this posh restaurant where we ate rabbits and frogs and all sorts of cute creatures. Super fancy. The hotel had even arranged for champagne for us there, even though it wasn't part of the hotel or anything. Hah! It was pretty good though. And the guys were so great, and easy to talk to. It's nice to meet people you're able to relax with. After, we went back to their hotel because they wanted to show me their psychadelic room (see photos) and just ended up chatting some more for a while. Also the film festival was having some sort of big fancy opening party down in the lobby so we went there to have a couple of drinks n such. I had to go though, cuz I have work in the morning and all.

I'll see them again tomorrow anyway. Their screening of Shortbus is the opening film for the festival, and I'm taking Anders there to see it. Then I guess we'll see John and James at the party after and then go someplace else or something. Can't wait to see this movie :)

OK I really have to go to bed now. V_V

Oh wow. John is one of my heroes. I actually wrote a paper on his work for a film class a few years ago.

Lucky you!

Oooh that's great! I'll tell him, if he hasn't already seen this.

Koff wants to go to Paris. But he's not into Shortbus - he's more of a Beethovenfan i'm afraid.

Yeah :P

That's so hot. It's awesome that not only did you get to meet and hang out with him, but he's a fan of your work. Looking forward to hearing about the festival and also I'd like to hear what you think of the movie. Unfortunately, the state I go to school in loves jesus way too much to let it show here, but I'm planning on checking it out when I'm in New York if I can find it playing.

Yeah it would be weird if it's unavailable in NYC ;P

You came here just for that?

Oh~ how lucky you are! John Cameron Mitchell is an amazing guy. I obviously love Hedwig..., but am a little apprehensive about seeing Shortbus.

Well if you can't stand nudity, then it's not for you. It's a hilarious movie though...and very sweet.

That's the most awesome thing ever. And you'll love Shortbus. Saw it a couple of days ago, it's the most amazing thing I've ever see (bar Hedwig).

And by "the most amazing thing I've ever see," I of course meant "ever seen."
My bad.

Dude, that's great! I can tell you are excited and that makes me excited for you! I don't really know you all that well, but I wish you the best of luck in all of this. Keep us in touch. And you know how much I admire your photography anyway. Hopefully soon I will be able to get myself set up to where you can view mine as well.

Much love and kudos!
