Reply justrun December 5, 2006 at 7:10 am Well, I know I haven’t been able to read blogs as much lately but I certainly didn’t expect this! 😉 Reply MARGARET December 5, 2006 at 7:28 am mmmm, MMMMM, ggrrrll wait, are you in your mother’s bed? Reply M.A. December 5, 2006 at 7:41 am I like the coat. A lot. Reply Becky December 5, 2006 at 7:59 am Wow. ‘s all I can say. Reply EEK December 5, 2006 at 8:03 am Your photo-shop skills are really coming along. Reply Neil December 5, 2006 at 8:16 am Margaret, what’s the matter? You never jumped on your mother’s bed when she was out playing mah-jongg? And it is an authentic wool overcoat from the 1950s! Reply psychomom December 5, 2006 at 8:30 am Mom is out and you are making porn on her bed. OMG! Love the coat. Reply ms. sizzle December 5, 2006 at 8:39 am nice! Reply Neil December 5, 2006 at 8:40 am PsychoMom — Porn? It’s art! I need a more intellectual bunch of readers. You didn’t understand my subway photo art, my garbage can art… Here, I’m showing the dichotomy between man in his natural state (the nude) vs. the “costume” we wear in society (the coat). Now do you understand? Besides, it was too cold to show you myself competely nude for reasons I don’t want to get into. Reply deannie December 5, 2006 at 8:44 am That is a way cool photo! Loved it Reply he's dead, jim! December 5, 2006 at 8:51 am I had the pleasure of seeing the man and his coat in person today. Thanks for stopping by my office, Neil. It was great to have met you! Namaste. ~HDJ (aka Claudette) Reply Neil December 5, 2006 at 9:02 am Claudette — It was great finally meeting you. I should add that I WAS wearing clothes when we met (in case any other bloggers are too afraid to meet me). C, are as interesting and thoughtful (and funny) in person as you are on your blog. I wish you would blog MORE. I know surgery is an important career and all, but really — where are your priorities? Next to meet: Caitlin and Sandra! Reply treespotter December 5, 2006 at 9:13 am it’s so cool being in that part of the world where you get to dress up in different themes every few months. we get all the same tropical sunshine every single goddamn day!! ah so boring. Reply tiff December 5, 2006 at 9:22 am Next up – a trip for Neil through the South to visit his fans “over yonder.” Please? You could maybe even ditch the coat. Reply MARGARET December 5, 2006 at 9:41 am You are a fascinating weirdo. Reply peefer December 5, 2006 at 11:05 am what Margaret said Reply Neil December 5, 2006 at 11:33 am Margaret — I’m not that fascinating. Reply Laini December 5, 2006 at 11:35 am Funny — how did you do that? I get how you replicated yourself, I mean, you obviously used a replicator machine, but then, how did one of you tilt sideways like that? That seems to defy physics. And which one is “you” you? I mean, which one is your new clone? And what did you do with him after the photo? And, have you seen The Prestige? I’m sure my line of thinking has nothing whatsoever to do with that movie. Reply Dana December 5, 2006 at 11:53 am A two-dimensional and literal attempt at “flasher”? I thought you stole my favorite vintage autumn coat, which is a laughingstock in my family. Mine is longer, tho. $8 fifteen years ago at a veterans’ thrift shop. 1950s, wool and silk tweed blend? Zip-out lining, bottomless on-seam pockets, leather buttons, very comfy? Mine has been borrowed for the wardrobe of Fagin in “Oliver.” After the great way you advertised the excellent coat, maybe now’s the time to sell mine on eBay! Oh, yeah–you are that fascinating. Especially since one of your socked feet appears to be missing . . . Reply Hilly December 5, 2006 at 12:18 pm Um you look like Ben Folds today, without his five. Reply Churlita December 5, 2006 at 12:19 pm Will you soon star in “What Not to NOT Wear”? Reply sara lee December 5, 2006 at 12:19 pm Is it me or did you brush your hair for the 2nd pic? Or were you going for the “just got out of bed” look? Reply psychomom December 5, 2006 at 12:36 pm Art? I thought your name was Neil. Oops, my mind was in the gutter, as usual. Reply Neil December 5, 2006 at 12:50 pm Sara — I’m wearing one of those pullover hats that my mother used to make me wear when I went to school, and then I shoved in my pocket so I didn’t look like a dork. Reply Two Roads December 5, 2006 at 1:26 pm So are you back to discussing size again with the comment: “Besides, it was too cold to show you myself competely nude for reasons I don’t want to get into.” ;D Reply sara lee December 5, 2006 at 1:41 pm aha…got it…wasn’t so clear on my computer…glad you were careful not to look like a dork! 😉 Reply Neil December 5, 2006 at 2:14 pm From a kind blogger who hates the overcoat: (via email) Neil, this is the 21st century. You are a young guy. Nice looking guy. You should dress better than a street person. Reply JanePoe (aka Deborah) December 5, 2006 at 5:57 pm I just figured out you’re standing on the bed!! Reply Dating Dummy December 5, 2006 at 9:29 pm Hey, it’s not even Thursday yet and you’re already flaunting the HNT! Way to go! Reply "said" woman December 6, 2006 at 12:01 pm Neil – It’s not THAT cold here. LA has made you soft. Okay, perhaps it is a tiny bit cold here…but regardless, I love telling people lalaland makes them soft. nice coat!
