I accidentally shoulder-checked Sufjan Stevens the other night

at the premiere of his BQE film at the 92Y Tribeca. I didn't mean to, I didn't realize it was even him until the moment of no return. He didn't seem too chuffed about it.

First reaction: Wait, no!
Second reaction: Oh Fuck.
Third reaction: What a dreamboat. He is dreamy and makes me want to dream too, and all the time.




It's a shame I was in a terribly irritable mood from the horrible wet dark weather and my squishy boots and being late and having to stand because the show was oversold and everyone in this room is a young professional and making me feel young and poor and people chatting in the doorway I'm trying to get through because I have to pee so I barrell through them and graze Sufjan Stevens' shoulder with hostility and aggression.
I could hardly enjoy the actual show but I liked it anyhow. What I wouldn't give to work with that guy...

i find it interesting how you seem to feel a certain way about this scenario partly due to the identity of the other person

Yes, generally I try not to appear hostile and violent to potential marriage material. Doesn't get a ring on this finger any quicker, ya hearrrrd?

that's presicely what i find interesting about it

you seem to care how this particular person perceives you because you happen to want something from them

if their identity were other than what it is, maybe you would feel righteous or indifferent about it

perception is interesting, i think

Yeah, like when Tyra Banks wore a fat suit all day and felt horrible and unattractive and was all of a sudden enlightened to how fat people are perceived by everyone. Yikes.
