Ladies and gentlemen, a world premiere. Lily Dillon a/k/a Rie Rasmussen has issued a beautiful book of her drawings and photographs where she works out a fascinating duality between being the object and the object maker. Last time I saw Rie she had been laying the book out in her Soho loft , with a grid of images arrayed all over its walls. How thrilled I was to see the physical book sitting on a desk at 1 Mgmt when I popped in to say hello to Scotty Lipps. In addition to the book Rie is also wrapping up post-production on her first feature film. Dear God, the life force in that woman. Its epic !

Had a lunchtime meet with Scott Lipps at 1 Mgmt today. Scotty always knows what's new and now in music. I said "Name that one group/band/song/ that is ruling it right now". Scott knows I'm an ex-club kid and lifetime dancehead and recommended Calvin Harris "I Created Disco" . "Very you," he assured. "Merrymaking At My Place" is getting played a lot at places like The Rose Bar down at The Gramercy he assured. I Myspaced Calvin Harris and like the wiggle of his boogie. And I love his mythology. Nice Scottish boy from Dumfries becomes ill as a teen, locks himself in his room for two years and starts to make dream dance music on his ancient Amiga computer. He works at the local supermarket saving enough to move to London. London proves to be so expensive he works all the time and makes no dosh , so moves back (tail between legs) to Dumfries. He almost gives up, but gives the dream one more try, even warbling on his new tracks. He puts em up on Myspace in 2005. Next thing you know he draws a manager, Pete Tong starts banging "The Girls" in his sets, Columbia signs Calvin up and Kylie's people call up to write some tracks ("Into My Arms", "Heartbeat Rock") for the new album. Now the boy is a superstar producer with a band and everything. I find all this truly inspiring. If it is all a hustle its all the more genius for it!

True quote of the day:
The mobs may have been screaming for Carrie Underwood, Jessica Alba and Nicole Ritchie at Fashion Rocks but a clique of cool kids kept it really real on Grand Street as 3 gallaries had simultaneous openings. Marilena Borgna's "Rock n Roll Diaries" launch at the Dactyl Foundation got premium young fashion points . Probably because of Marilena's past stint as casting director of sorts for Vogue Italia, many a model was there. The photographs (which were incidental to the kids assembled) were actually color xeroxes taped to the wall. Very teenaged bedroom reverie. There were two A-list Italian Vogue cover girls in the house (Adina + DJ Agyness jacking the decks with co-hort Jacky)
