'Chase the dream, not the competition.'
- Flawless, to Simon Cowell, Britain's Got Talent
It's a glorious weekend here in London. Before I even upload the new STUFF I've shot, there are still so many to catch up on from the last blogger's cupcake thing. For example, Simon Smith, from Flawless.
We were rushing thru a crowd and I saw Simon. Had no idea who he was, just liked his look and asked to shoot him. When I asked who made his cardigan he started showing us how it wraps, said his friend made it. Jen and I were just snapping away. He was such a delight and a great sport, posing for us with all these women surrounding him.
This was all happening so fast: Jen gave him one her cards (aren't they great?) and I forget, one of us asked what he did and I thought he said he was a doctor. Jen asked for who and he said something and she started screaming. Well, not screaming exactly.. yeah, kind of high pitched screaming (mind you, it was a crowded scene: Friday end of work pub West End madness, so no one blinked). I didn't understand any of it, but later she said, you know, FLAWLESS. That dance band from Britain's Got Talent.
If there's anyone there besides me who doesn't know these guys, or even if you do: this is their audition tape. And since I couldn't decide which shots to use, and because I can't embed it as a video, this is the best way I could think of to show you Simon dancing. And I'm going to email Simon and tell him I"m posting this and ask him who his friend is, and what else he is wearing, because I just think he's got that special something. He is so dotted.
Does anyone remember: did I dream it, or did there used to be an American commercial where this soap opera actor said 'I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV'? I remember my dad saying that expression. Anyway, I keep saying that phrase lately and cracking myself up.
