Coverage of the Antilia's preview of Carnival for Getty on 10/30/08, featuring Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Mad Stuntman, KES and Rupee.

I sound so cheesy, but I couldn't believe how much fun I was having at this event. Shaggy was hysterical and in killer shoes, Wyclef was super nice... so much so that I kinda have a crush on him and the Caribbean food, music and atmosphere was just what I needed on a chilly October night.

When I'm more awake, I'll write some more about this crazy shindig.

All I wanted to do was wear one of these things... well that and get up and dance with Wyclef... is one (or both) of those things weird?

Oh man... Shaggy (far right) wassss tooasssted and outrageously funny. I loved every second of it.

Clearly, the hosts (left) found him as amusing as I did.

P.S. - Terminal 5 is a sweet venue. I'd probably even go see New Kids on the Block there... oh wait... they're playing a sold out show at Madison Square Garden.

Uhhh, excuse me? WHO is buying those tickets???

I love the fluidity of this material - texture and color.

Arriving in New York City in a torrential downpour is always great. Particularly when you have to double-park to unload your crap into an apartment building with no elevator. Let's see... rain... check... (haha, rain check) possible parking ticket... check... absurdly fast sprints up the stairs... check... broken antique mirror .... annnnd check. Nice work, Alli... moron.

Break a leg?

Haha, despite my idiocy with the mirror, I think I've made a fine start at warding off seven years of bad luck. And if I haven't? Well, there still will be brunch on both Saturday and Sunday for the next seven years, so who cares.

All right, so we went the train-tracks route... whatever. Don't judge.

I mean, nothing like a 4:30 a.m. shoot to get your blood flowing. I'm pretty sure none of us slept for the better part 25 hours. Why 4:30 you ask? To get that look on your subject's face.

I really, really like this image. The peace on his face, the loose cigarette, the tight grip. Really, all it's missing is an on-coming train, but perhaps it's the waiting that makes his face calm and his grip strong.
