I'm sure Johnny Depp would love the Playa if he hasn't already been there.

Talked to Depp out there.
Didn't know who he was.

I have an easy time spotting anyone trying to be incognito, otherwise they don't stand out.
But anyone can disguise themselves there, if they want to.

I've seen Andy Dick there.
I think Ferguson might go.
Letterman goes if he doesn't have racing conflicts, but is very private out there.
Hard to guess about Leno.
He's a fun guy.
He's on a forum I'm on.
We pretend we don't know.
I cracked him up once.

I don't know what yba is.

Most of the 'stars' I see on tv, I have no fucking clue who they are.

Our local janitor is a Celb....I think I've seen him on the playa...he's a ROCKSTAR!!

Look under the masks and in certain parts of the city TG...they (often) have to hide ...especially if ya's think about it too tooooo much, the poor things.

Now, how can I make this happen?
The guy from Spooks?

You're so queer!


Still, I have a thing for voices myself.
And I've known some that enjoyed being read to.

You're so disturbing.

I knew someone with a pure elizabethan accent.
Shakespeare without that, is only half heard.

That voice was the most beautiful thing I ever heard, like music from a dream.

I met Lucifer on the playa last year and I think I saw God and his son on an art car....

You should bring this person to playa so I can meet! Or maybe you can make a video of them reading? I enjoy being read to only if it's certain kind of literary piece like poetry where the voice adds magnitude of beauty to the words.

I could listen to her read the phonebook.

If you ever heard it, you'd know why it was adopted.
Like a lot of accents in britain, it was an affectation.

Lost touch years ago, but I think I know how to produce the accent.
I can't get it right myself.
If I spent enough time in UK I might be able to.

Combine a southern NC/SC accent with britsh nigerian.
Instant elizabethan.

It doesn't sound like either one of them.

or underwhelmed.

i'm pretty boring, if i can, i just wander around collecting moop, checking for good stuff, occasionally i'll have a beer and i also like to look at the ART...pretty pedestrian.

this year however, i have a feeling i'll be building something, working like a despotic lunatic, surrounded by thumping madness, borderline psychosis by wednesday, physical and mental breakdown thursday afternoon followed by 2 days of hideously grotesque over the top debauchery, possible injury, and then final atonement at the temple and a 3 week severe bout of destructive depression because i have no serotonin whatsoever.

now who wants to tag along?
