Scorpio 16° (November 8)


I awoke rather bemused at last night’s doings. And to an email that one of the performers sent to the entire venue team saying that the key they had to the flat provided didn’t work and also “we didn’t get paid” (as it’s own paragraph!), and subsequent ones harping on the subject of payment. I tell people: Do not send professional emails at two in the morning, especially when I left you after a night of partying at eleven and I know we’d been at it since five o’clock in the evening. There is so much to unpack here. It would almost  seem like there was some arrangment made directly with the venue (there wasn’t) so the first thing I wanted to find out was had a fallen off any correspondence (I hadn’t) which will prove to take a couple more days to find out. The next thing is, even if there was(there wasn’t) a plan to pay this person the night of the show, do you still want to be the person who is writing to the directors of the theater along with producers (myself included) saying we “nevergot paid”? How about “we didn’t receive our payment as planned”? But the effing thing of it, nowhere did anyone say you were being paid night of; in fact the payment schedule is in your contract, you know the one you said you sent months back which you never did. The one that we had to chase up for you and ask you to “resend” because we didn’t want to say you never sent it though we know you did but we are pretending we don’t belive that so to be polite? And sorry but there was very little audience, and your half of the artists guarantee amounts to less than you ate and drank last night on not your dime. So shhhh. I understand why others have said things like “I don’t think I can stay friends,” with this person; to which I’ve always responded: “oh, don’t say/do that,” because, because, because you’re wonderful and loveable. Just, again, shut up.

I wrote immediately to say I thought the email strange and that it probably isn’t great to send a venue, with which one is working for the first time, an email that is all-too-easily read as blaming, accusatory and going to be perceived as fueled by a night out. But my two sentences of caution and tiny admonishment, designed to nip it in the bud, did the exact opposite. It escalated with a series of responses reacting to what I don’t know. Nothing I was saying. Thus the escalation. It was as if I was accusing you of going around my back and having “clandestine conversations”. No. All I wanted to know was did I maybe fall of an email where you made an arrangement for getting paid night of. Simple yes or no question. I wanted to know that before I said any more other than: don’t be weird in an email at 2AM to professional people you are meeting for the first time. That’s all.  Anyway we had a morning appointment today with the client we saw downstairs at the bar the other night. We had lunch at the taco truck and I added fried fish and shrimp tacos to the menu of my terrible, hedonistic diet this week. We ran some errands and then we headed to the burbs to visit family. I cut chicken and otherwise sipped La Stoppa. I want to call Mike at City Winery and put a little musical series together there and why the hell not. For Spring or Fall. Part of the plea to diversify. I’m taking New York very easy I’m going to saunter the whole time. These are not my words. but they do fill out a paragraph. And really ca suffit.

I have seven minutes before a client calls so I thought I’d let my mind go and see what pops out. Now I have four because I got side tracked…


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!
