In court. Opposing counsel is wearing a jacket with blue sequins all over it. My client looked her dead in the eye and said “where’s the party?” and now we need to continue this hearing because I passed away right then and there.

Heartbreaking news
Early this morning, our dear friend and colleague @elliotharmon passed away after a long illness. He lived too short a life but accomplished so much. We were honored that he chose to share his talents with us for 6 years and send our condolences to his loved ones.

I’m at Adam Neumann’s WeWork SPAC day party and he’s wearing a “STUDENT FOR LIFE” shirt. “A brand without a past does not have a future,” Adam tells attendees, who are pounding champagne on a Thursday morning.

This is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen. Kids paying tribute to Serge Gainsbourg, all in identical outfits, grey wigs, sunglasses…holding glasses of booze and smoking, while the great man looks on….smoking and weeping.
