Superbowl Tickets

A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl. As he sits down, a
man comes down and asked the man if anyone is sitting in the seat next
to him.

“No”, he said, “the seat is empty“.

This is incredible“, said the man. “Who in their right mind would have
a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sport event in the
world, and not use it?”

Somberly, the man says, “Well… the seat actually belongs to me. I
was supposed to come here with my wife, but she passed away. This is the
first Super Bowl we have not been together since we got married in
1967.”

“Oh I’m sorry to hear that. That’s terrible. But couldn’t you find
someone else – a friend or relative or even a neighbor to take the
seat?”

The man shakes his head, “No. They’re all at the funeral.”

Frey Gets A Little Help From Art World Friends For Comeback Novel

Richard Prince - The Greatest Artist in AmericaFebruary 4, 2008 — CONTROVERSIAL writer James Frey is back with a new novel, and he’s getting a little help from his friends in the art world.

Lunching with Page Six at Le Bernardin, where First Lady Laura Bush was at a nearby table with her daughter Jenna, Frey discussed for the first time some of the details related to the forthcoming release of “Bright Shiny Morning,” which is set in a fictional version of Los Angeles.

Frey described plans to take the book directly to his readers with a tour that sounded more like a concert tour. “We’re talking about having bands, other authors reading their work. We may try to include some pyrotechnics,” he said with a laugh.

Terry Richardson is The EyeThe novel, due in May from HarperCollins, will feature a cover by his friend, famed artist Richard Prince – the first time Prince has done a cover for a book by anyone other than himself. Frey also plans to collaborate on a limited-edition companion book with Prince and photographer Terry Richardson that will incorporate excerpts from his novel with Richardson’s photographs of LA and Prince’s artwork.

Frey recalled, “When I called and asked Richard if he’d do the cover, he laughed and said something like, ‘[Bleep], yeah, I’ll do it.’ And most of Terry’s photos will be of girls, cars and guns. It’s going to be a really cool, interesting, edgy book.”
