"New York Montage Video: Intro and Stills"
This montage of stuff from films, TV and real life is here just for fun—a frisky little soufflé laying no claim to profundity. My presence in these 114 filmed projects and other items of footage in Those New York ’Nineties adds up to something like one full B-movie’s worth of performance, as a rough estimate. It’s a jaunt through a single decade of a life, showing what my friends had to put up with in New York. It was a colourful ten years that happened to be captured quite often on film and tape in various contexts, while I was running around doing the acting-modelling-temping-partying thing. Some of these images are from grown-up places like feature film shoots, but there’s also quite a bit of drunken shenanigans, fragments of neurotic queening-about like a vapid bimbo, earnest statements from self-indulgent interviews, and two or three performances of varying degrees of buttock-clenchingness, delivering deathless prose into the cameras of patient friends. So not too much has changed, you may say, looking at The Imagination Thief now—and to this I plead guilty as charged.
