My cousin writes a cool blog called Four Cents. This was her recount of Sunday night, where we created her best Facebook profile pic yet (although this brick wall apparently not so original). She’s got the best “LOOK DISAFFECTED” look I’ve seen in a while. Well done.
My cousin Jenny arrived in New York Sunday night. As any good Chung does, she dropped her bags off at her hotel and proceeded directly to Momofuku Ssäm Bar. The meal was uncharacteristically uneven, with very high highs (spicy sausage and rice cakes, pork buns, duh) and disappointing lows (overly smoky asparagus and snails). Entertainment came courtesy of a nattily dressed couple who decided to conduct an impromptu photo shoot in front of the graffitied wall next to the restaurant. Much pain was taken in the posing of every photo - move your left foot an inch to the right; slouch; give me more disaffected; would you waste Terry Richardson’s time with that pout? A good ten minutes of this, but then again, what’s ten minutes in the quest for Facebook profile pic glory? Jenny’s and my attempt to recreate the magic is above.
