Mark Houston invited Julia and I to join his family at Diana Ross' concert Hollywood Bowl. Diana was great, performing all her best songs except for her most known song, I'm Coming Out. We went with the Houstons to Madame Siam, watching the illusionist sideshow for which the bar is known. I met one of the featured dancers Emily, who I thought a very talented entertainer. We finished the night with Break Room 86.

Went to the Galore Magazine event at Mouche Gallery with Julia. The theme of the event was early 2000's - even though it seemed that we were the only ones who bothered to dress for the occasion. But then I wasn't even getting my outfit right. I looked more like a 1980's Lacoste advertisement. I should have watched an episode of Friends before trying out things to wear. I met a photographer, Norbert Baeres, who spoke with me for about an hour (maybe not an hour, but it was right when we got there and all I wanted to do is see who else is there). He took some pictures of me and Julia and was the first of the evening to refer to me as 'Andy Warhol' (but not the last). I don't usually mind when people make that connection, it is just a reminder that I have big shoes to fill. We spoke with some other girls that are all signed with Hollywood Model Management; Olga, Alona, Kamilla, Noemie. I ran into Brendon Melton, too. I was unaware that he was affiliated with the gallery until last night. After the show, we went to the Galore after-party at Madame Siam which was packed. Julia excitedly spotted Jeremy Renner, who I recognized but whose name I couldn't seem to recall or anything he's been in.

Yesterday Julia suggested that we go to the Melrose flea market, and I agreed. Julia needed new old jeans, and needed new old shoes. I told Morgan Jensen about it, and she also agreed. She needed birthday presents. I took Sunset with us and we met Morgan at the Market. Neither of them had any cash, so every time they had gotten something I paid and we added up the sum. Julia and Morgan bought all kinds of patches, then Morgan bought a vintage red floppy hat. Or was it a cowboy hat? I didn't find shoes, but I found a pair of sunglasses that I thought looked more modern than my current ones but still retro enough to be considered 1960's. After the market we went to Paramount Coffee Project, an Australian Cafe, for lunch. This time it was the girls' time to pay the bill. I had a slow cooked lamb sandwich with dandelion - which I pronounced dandi-leeeon and it became the subject of a 10-minute conversation. At lunch a friend of Julia's, Paris, joined us and then Morgan left, and we all left and I left and Julia and Paris went back to the market to see if she can still find a pair of jeans. I went home to drop off Sunset and then went to SkyBar at the Mondrian Hotel for Julifer Day's birthday day-party. I didn't know anyone there except for Claire Felske but the table we were seated (or standing around) at had a vast amount of bottles coming, so that was comforting enough, especially since I had to battle with the worst music I heard in decades.

I get "blamed" for taking pictures of beautiful women. Everyone is beautiful in LA and my pictures try to reflect that. I don't think beauty is exclusive to woman. Woman just seem to work for it harder, so I just try to give them credit for it.

Came back home after a long drive from Coachella. In two separate occasions people have mentioned and recommended the movie Victoria (2015), so that became Jules' and my pick for an unwinding movie night. The movie was indeed different in the way it was made, captured entirely in one take. You could sense something was unique about it, even subconsciously. And then consciously I was trying to analyze the technique used for this really great execution. The plot itself, however, was pretty mundane in hindsight, although it wasn't boring to watch. It was just very conventional and typical when you thought of European movies. It was my 9th Coachella, if I had to guess, and I have been going every year since I started. I think once you partake in a certain function for several times, then it becomes more interesting - and I like how overall the feeling of Coachella stays the same, but many aspects change - like the people you're with or some of the events you attend. I even try to go to the same Chinese restaurant, called Wangs at the Desert, every year, but this year we didn't make it. On Friday, when I arrived in Palm Springs, it seemed like I was going to be a third wheel, since the only people who were in my group were Charan and Kyla. But then last minute, my friend Sierra Plowden said she was coming with two other friends, and suddenly we turned into a pretty big group. Later on, on Saturday, a couple of other friends joined and we turned into an even bigger group. Sierra and her friends stayed till Monday and she really made things great this year - even though it was her very first Coachella. On Sunday we went to the actual Festival. I didn't have a wristband, so Charan had to walk in with Kyla and then take hers off and walk all the way back with her wristband and put it on me. The wristband barely fit through my hand, but with a little bit of squeezing, it went through. We later tried to take it off, so that Kyla could have it back, so she could go in the VIP area, but my hand was too swollen and we couldn't get it off. Sierra and her friends didn't have wristbands either, but after I left them and went in, she managed to find three people walking out and get their wristbands for $70 each. I did this before, and instructed her how to do it, but this year it seemed much tougher than usual since security was much tighter and there was not much of a gap between the parked cars in the lot and the first security checkpoint. She managed to do it anyways, and it was her first Coachella. I was really proud of her.

Went to Madam Siam with Milena Ilima and Dagmara Novak and later went home with a lot of people I don't really know. At 5:30am Milena kicked everyone out and I went to sleep.

JH: Are you out tonight, or just relaxing?

TJ: Neither. Working.

JH: Oh man, don't work too hard.

TJ: Work isn't hard. It's hard when work isn't being done.
