Living with Courtney Love

Normally I'd be very hesitant to write about a celebrity - especially one who trusted me with her personal life by moving in with my friends and I. But... this is Courtney Love, so anything's fair game. Just kidding.

Actually I don't have a moral objection writing about her because I have basically only good things to say, and also because similar stories were already published in The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists. In case you missed the How I Became a Famous Pickup Artist series, The Game is a book which chronicles our adventures, written by the literary mastermind Neil Strauss, who was also a roommate at the time.

Mystery and I were in New York preparing to be on Good Morning America. Ultimately we didn't get on because Mystery's flamboyant character and dress offended the conservative and frumpy program director, and they canned the segment at the last minute. Neil was asked to write a story about Courtney Love for The Rolling Stone. He had never met her before. As Mystery and I waited for our workshop to begin we got a call from Neil. He had forgotten his tape recorder and wanted to know if we'd bring it to him.

On Turning Into Black And White

Okay, so.

My sister's starting her business this year, and helping her out has been so much fun! She's been going to Slim's these past few months, learning how to sew and design her own clothes. She really wants to create her design, and according to her, it's a lot better if she would actually know what she's doing. So yes, she's actually putting a lot of effort in this! And that's because she loves fashion. <3

Even when we were younger, I would always see my sister making her own accessories and even her own clothes. She would buy beads and all that stuff, and for the clothes she would cut her shirts and sew them again in a different way, then sew some prints that she also made on them. Whenever we're in a mall, she would drag me to stores just to look at accessories and clothes. One time she also made a bag out of her old shorts, some spare cloth, and a belt. And that was during her high school years (we're seven years apart). So now, I guess it's a dream come true for her that she's starting a business based on her old hobby. You gotta do what you love, you know?

Our whole family's actually very excited for her. My parents are the ones funding her business, and I get to make the color combinations and I model for her. Even our helper's helping her out. They would go out and shop for materials, or do competitor check (sadly, I can't go with them because I'm a dormer and I only go home once a week

So, from what I know, she's going to open her business this weekend. Here's a peek!
