Pisces 17° (March 8)
I slept until 11:20. Meant to speak to S. again on Thursday. Back and forth with Daniel and I end up just staying in and making roasted cauliflower, suede and Mexican meatloaf. Really laying low today otherwise. Yippi for Tuesdays. Bridesmaids again. Oh well, why not. Doodle Oodle Loo. Back to the future: As I cycle through reading these posts, scant as they are, I am struck by how vague and disconnected they are. Not to mention the fact I often have no idea who the people are reference even are. I have no idea who Daniel is, now, for instance. Obviously someone from town with whom I may have made a vague plan that didn’t pan out. But what is most telling is that I can’t really recall, which makes me realize how checked out and in shock I still was during this time. Back to work on the book proposal: And as far as show business goes: We began “appearing” as Starsky + Cox to connect, live, with existing fans and new followers, telling our true tales of growing up in white-witch families; of our education at the very Hogwarts-y London Faculty of Astrological Studies, campused, as it is, at Oxford University; of our star-crossed run-ins with royalty and other rich and famous folk; and of our supernatural experiencing of real magic in this world; on radio, television and in live shows. To date, over the last two decades, we performed upward of thirty shows of original material I wrote for us, as a duo, to present at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater in New York City, and just as many other shows staged at venues like Ars Nova, Dixon Place, Elmo, and The Zipper Factory in New York, Club Café in Boston, Oberon at the American Repertory Theater, in Cambridge, and at the Art House, Provincetown, the town I’ve made home for twenty years.Starsky + Cox have been unique among astrology authors in achieving the kind of cult following usually reserved for cabaret stars, pop-culture arbiters, or other such influencers. Under the auspice of the brand I have regularly written features for Condé Nast publications worldwide, as a contributor to Elle, Allure, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Vogue (France), Bolero (Switzerland), Image (Ireland), Glamour, Style.com, and, most notably (and ironically) The Daily Beast. Conversely we’ve been featured in all the Vogue(s), Time, O, Us, InStyle, Marie Claire, GQ, Elle, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The San Francisco Chronicle, The New York Observer and The Times of London, making the cover of London’s Daily Telegraph, The Scotsman magazine and The New York Times “T” magazine—in that particular instance the actress Robin Wright was pictured wearing pieces from our own AsterCast fine-jewelry collection. The brand has collaborated with Marc Jacobs stores around the country in the mounting of our Cosmic Clinics—on-site charitable or, in this case, commercial events where customers line up for instant astrological readings. As the live window display, one Valentine’s Day season, Starsky + Cox conducted more than six hundred readings over two weeks, at Marc Jacobs’ Bleecker Street shop. We’ve collaborated with top international event planners, too, who engage us to do this sort of thing at private parties. We have also created content for a number of companies and artists like Kylie Minogue, M•A•C Cosmetics, Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Johnson & Johnson and for creative, branding and advertising agencies.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go! Copyright 2022 Wheel Atelier Inc. All Rights Reserved.
