Cancer 11° (July 1)
If I die tomorrow I have the luxury of knowing (ok maybe luxury is the wrong word) but I will know that this Blague goes on forever. And there are so many stories in here which are my IP and if you try to mess with my IP my lawyers are superheroes; that said there is no end to the amount I might inspire people, whether astrologically or creatively or both. In writing that it flashes me back to S’s and my wee one bedroom in the West Village where one of us would have to clear out for two hours to make room for the other welcoming a scene-partner from acting class. Sometimes I would arrive back suspiciously when some Rock Hudson type (the irony is not lost on me) would shake my hand as we traded places. Tim. Where is Tim from Lexington or Concord, MA. He wished he were straight I think and that always made me sad. There was still so much self-loathing in the community and self-homophobia was something young people dealt with; I don’t think it is really an issue that much anymore. Anyway I’m not sure why I thought of that. Anyway…I’ve got some wording to do in regard to folks from whom we received an email today, to which I must respond something like this.
Wow. Where to begin. A lot has happened since we spoke in April. We have hired a social media person for the Starsky + Cox brand which has necessitated moving ahead on that side of things including finding someone to build a new S+C website (that we can access and change at will). He’s called Mark and besides moving us from html to SquareSpace he is cleaning up the site and the S+ C logo. So that process is underway and if all goes well we will use him to build the TK website on TK. He’s based in NYC and has done work for our friend Tim with whom we’ve just partnered on some astrological tee shirts.
The TK design process itself is underway. A. has come to NYC and then to Boston to work with us, brainstorming on putting together a core collection. She is based in London so we will see her there week after next as well and start to move into what the pieces will actually look like, so that is happening although we aren’t in any kind of rush we are trying to have some things available by the end of the year and the full core collection within a year from now. By then we should have the website up and running and our social media focus will turn toward TK. Once we have something physical to show we can then go out and look for actual investment. Which brings us to the next point.
You had mentioned when we spoke wanting remuneration to be a percentage in the company instead of getting a fee. Though this may be possible it would be predicated on our entering into an investor situation. TK. So once we have TK it is surely our goal to solicit outside investment but we are being advised not to enter into any percentage scenarios in advance of what we hope will be that inevitability. But you never know. We may never have, despite planned efforts, investment or even need it. Time will tell. Either way, as the business has zero value at this point, we have to wait to see what a share percentage will even be worth. For now, we have to pay people fees for whatever jobs they are performing for the company.
So, given that, we should decide together what needs to be done in regard to the look of the branding which would surely marry to the actual design of the product; and since we’ve managed to get the ball rolling on putting simple fixes in place for S+C, we can purely focus on TK and continue to talk about brand values and aesthetic as we started to do in our last chat. And we should get from you some kind of proposal, perhaps, and prospective roll out of what we’d need to accomplish and roughly when; and also come up with an agreed upon fee for this first leg of the journey so that we are ready, say, by January 1, to at least offer a glimpse of the collection. TKIn any case we plan to start with the TKas we continue to create the rest of the core collection (we will tell you what that will consist of exactly after we next meet TK) and hopefully begin selling them, priming the pump, and as mentioned, also position ourselves by Winter/Spring to make presentations to would-be (real money) investors, with an updated biz plan in hand.
So that’s the long and short of it in real time. So tell us what you’re envisioning in terms of your involvement and how we can best work together in the short-term; and also what you see fit to propose in terms of the actual work on the company identity and what you feel that should entail and how it should all roll out. And then we can have another brainstorming on the actual look and feel of the identity, which should be the fun part! We know we want TK to look like a well established brand on par with other TK”houses.” And of course we should continue to dream and scheme about the future while living in present reality. It’s basically what we do on our near-daily beach walks! Ideally, it really takes off and creates the kind of abundance and lifestyle we all can imagine for ourselves. In our revery, TK is the TKart department with no need for any other clients, and we all have teams in place doing what’s needed while we all continue to be the pure creatives, directing the action.
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
