The Twelve Days Before Christmas

Saturday 13th December 2008 and on...

The run up to the Holidays was for me the usual last minute frenzied panic of shopping ,finishing off work and trying to squeeze in some real New York traditional Christmassy things that remind me of why I still love living here...

Pipilotti Rist's "Pour Your Body Out" at MoMA. (I got a bit side tracked from the 5th Avenue sales by this amazing dreamlike video installation)

Kitty ( doing her best Ugly Betty impression) and Paud in the MOMA cafeteria.

James Gardner and me having a Christmas nibble at the Rainbow Room.

James and artist Drew Cramer morphing into a '80's synth duo album cover.

The first day of Hanukkah; the Empire State Building and view of the Big Apple from Rainbow Room.

In a vampire obsessed season, here's the big beaming December full moon over the Bowery.

This was new to me! We ran into 300 tubas about to play their Christmas Concert at the Rockefeller ice-rink...who knew?

Kitty and the Rockefeller tree.

Amidst all this, here are the paparazzi and a harsh reality check I'm faced with every opposite Ponzi scheme rotter Bernie Madoff.
