Dear Magic Hotel....

I'm going to be in Austin TX from February 8th until the morning of the 12th doing roller derby portraits. Looking for crash space for myself & my noble companion in crime, Colin (who has the dubious distinction of being the guy who was with me when I almost got into a bar fight because I had Hello Kitty on my phone.) Sofas, living room floor, we're pretty easy. Drop me a note if you can put us up.

Tonight I've been in Delaware, doing ... more derby portraits.

Here's how things are going.



Nadine Brittingham from the Diamond State Roller Girls


It's shaping up nicely. I think there's something here.

Anyway, be well tonight my friends. Work on a project you've put aside, tell someone you love them, pet the next animal that asks you for five minutes straight.

This might be a record for the magic hotel!



Will there be wigs?

lmao I don't have a huge stock of stuff just hanging around in my studio but yes, there are wigs! and I REALLY wish you were going to stay in town longer because the weekend after that is our Star Wars camp and I would LOVE you to come shoot for that. I can probably find you about a zillion other things to shoot while you're down here if you find yourself lacking inspiration. ;P

I've been thinking about photographing the roller derby girls here in Cleveland. Or at least the thought crossed my mind when my friend was taking RD lessons for fun with the Burning River Roller Girls. Hmmm... I just never did because I figured others have already done this and my travel schedule just wouldn't work... As for the HK phone (which is hilarious btw) I hope she never EVER travels to Japan or she will be very very angry...

Now I know why it's familiar, I've been emailing her. Everybody's got five names, it's hard to keep track!

It may be too far for you, but we have a guesthouse in the country you are welcome to crash in. It's about an hour from Austin though... Lots of pretty farmland and animals... (check out www.schnookiemuffin.com to see)

Looks like you have magic hotel sorted. But if I can be of any help with trip planning or driving or anything, I would be happy to do so!

Magic hotel still ostensibly open, we don't know as of yet what area we'll be in, so more options still better.

I'm in!! Let us know where, I'd love to see you. I'm in Pflugerville as well, but can meet pretty much anywhere, outside of work hours (9-6).

I too have a spare room, but doubt you'd be up this far north. Alas, I have no kitties to share. :-(

And if you need an acoustic dork-rock power duo to accompany whatever you're doing on the evening of 2/8, ping me. Hot Breakfast! will be in ATX doin' our thang.

If you end up in Aspen (and to a lesser extent NYC) I have a good contact for you- a high school chum of mine was very active in the derby community and is quite picturesque herself, though now she's a high-powered somethingorother.

No luck. I got ahold of her on facebook and she doesn't know anyone in the NY derby scene at all. Sorry to tease you and not deliver! :-)
