COMING ATTRACTIONS : Torera behind the scenes pt 2

sets are about work. 
sets are about intensity and stress and time running against you.
sets are about moments piled onto moments, 
legs aching,
mind pounding.
but you keep going back, 
because sets are mainly about friendships 
that bond you strong and fast.
it was parker tolifson and my first time together. 
and it was THIS much fun, this easy.
that says a lot.
manacop and connie, 
they know me like family now.
kira, jim, and lyle all did drive-bys for support.  and laughter.
i need say nothing about this one.  it's apparent.
and my new leads? they seemed to fit right in:

COMING ATTRACTIONS : Torera behind the scenes

somewhere on melrose place,
behind an elegant storefront,
a crew of newly formed friends
got to work.
there was the designer:
(eduardo lucero, sorting shoes.)
the director:
(practicing pensive.) 
the cinematographer:
(no, you may not have parker.  he has a girlfriend.  yes, i checked for you already.)
the producer who was a model :
(la bang.  hard at work.) 
the producer who was also a chef :
(tim was swarmed at the grill.) 
there were cocktail parties :
and matadors :
and yes, the half naked male model for those of you whom have come to expect such things of me:
and though the fittings were fun :
and the torera was tempestuous :
it was the pomegranate seeds in the salad that threw everyone for a loop :
once again, tim's cookery steals the show!
