Since last Monday I've been dealing with some kind of eye stye. It got worse then better and actually popped while I was on live TV last Tuesday and, after the initial alarm - blurry vision - I got really excited because I love gross sh-t and it was all I could talk about, like show and tell. Literally a stank eye. My friend Dylan even took a picture of it (you can see it here) because he loves gross sh-t too.
A mistake. Bad luck. Because it never completely went away and has worsened again overnight and now I can barely open it. Which means I can't blog.
Am compressing etc but I have to get it checked out. Hoping it'll pop itself again and this time I won't be so stupid and practically celebrate it and it'll finally f-ck off for good.

I feel like I should apologize for not getting to The Get Down sooner. But now that I’m here, I’m looking around what feels like a mostly empty room and wondering where everyone else is. Have you watched The Get Down? No? Why not? Maybe it doesn’t look like your bag—it’s a show co-created by Baz Luhrmann, he of the lurid cabaret colors and overly staged musical numbers. Full Story
