New Yorker Stalking: Hilton Als' Slate Diary

| 1 Comment

New Yorker staff writer Hilton Als is doing the diary at Slate this week. So far it's mostly a New-York-is-Hollywood fabulous account of his screenwriting projects, with a little a lot of stroking. On Monday, while despairing reading Peter Biskind's Down and Dirty Pictures, Als laments, "I feel as if I've lived through the Miramax years without ever taking a meeting with Harvey." But by today, he's gushing about dinner with Tilda Swinton at Odeon. (Hilton! You're still livin'em, honey!)

Related: Passerby has started showing films by Derek Jarman (an early Swinton collaborator) on Monday nights at 9PM. Screenings in March and April may include appearances by other Jarmanites, so stay tuned for details.
Weird triangulation: the bartender/partner once wrote a Slate journal about a "Mormon art collector's wedding party" at Passerby.

Could you please forward my email address to Hilton Als. I was friends with Hilton Als years back - but we lost touch

Many Thanks if it is possible

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
