The NY Daily News ‘Gatecrasher’ Gossip Page with Frank Digiacomo describes the reaction of Weir's mother to how he was portrayed in the article, as well as his unhappiness with how his friends were portrayed; as does this Blog I wrote a few days ago;
Wheres My Koppy's Blog 'I’m Glad Someone Finally Said Something About the NY Mag Piece'.
The following two Blogs by my friend Misfit Mimes do an excellent job of describing what is wrong with this article:
MisfitMimes Blog 'Guuuuuurrrrrrlll'
MisfitMimes Blog '#Youre A Car'
However, despite the issues with the article itself, some of the photographs of Weir alone, especially in the print version, are worth the price of the magazine.
These four photographs accompanied the article itself:
This gorgeous head shot appeared on the first page of the article.
Page Two of the article gives us this wonderful photo!
Page Three gives us this 'Babushka' photograph.
Page Four gives us this uh, 'interesting' photo!
The following seven photos appeared on the NY Magazine website a few days after the article as a slideshow of outtakes:
The beauty of Outtake Number Four is hard to even describe!
Outtake Number Two could be a rock album cover photograph!
Outtake Number Six is just...beautiful!
