I just had an awesome conversation with Michael Conti. I called Michael Conti on the phone and talked with him. Michael Conti and I laughed together and really connected with each other. That guy is awesome.
And no, I'm not schitzophrentic. And I'm not starting to talk like Jimmy from that episode of Seinfeld either.
Towards the end of the day, I didn't have much to do at work. I googled my name to see if I was famous yet. You know, I wanted to see if celebrities were reading my blog and chatting about it on MTV or in US Weekly or something.
No such luck. But I did come across this website: http://www.contiphoto.com/gallery.htm.
Apparently another guy named Michael Conti is a professional photographer up in NY. I looked through his website and his photo gallery. And by that I mean I went straight to the 'Nudes' section. Fuckin Michael Conti is a stud! All his nudes are of hot ass chicks! Not a single nudedude! No crank! I was impressed with this guy. I decided that I needed to give Michael Conti a call.
I was nervous when the phone was ringing. I mean this guy has the same name as me. I'll paraphrase, but this is pretty much how the conversation went:
"Hey Michael. This is kind of a weird call. But I found your website through Google, and I decided to call you because my name is actually Michael Conti too."
"Haha...really? No way. Where do you live?"
"I'm in Texas. Kinda bored at work here and decided what the hell, I'll give you a call. I like your work man. You're a very talented Michael Conti."
"Hahaha Thanks I just moved to NY from Boston and opened up a shop here. It's going good so far."
"Yeah man I saw the nudes. Those were hot ass chicks man! You know what you're doing! (laughter) This is kinda trippy, huh?"
"Yeah it is. Do you go as Mike or Michael?"
"Mike. Dude do people end up calling you Conti even though you introduce yourself as Michael?"
"Yeah I HATE that!"
"It's because Conti's an awesome last name. Well I'll let you go. It was awesome talking to you. Have a good one. And keep representing the name."
"I will. You too."
Fuckin Michael Conti. He was seriously an awesome guy. We were laughing the entire time. It wasn't awkward or anything...I knew if we went out for a beer we'd have a badass time. I'll bet he's handsome as hell too. I mean how could he not if we share the same name? Talking with Michael Conti seriously made my day. Now I know what its like for you all to talk with me.
Michael Conti is a talented dude. Check out his website. If you need someone to take pictures at your wedding or if you have awesome tits and want someone to take pics of those give him a call.
Actually you should call me on the tits there. I um, I have a camera too. And I won't charge as much. In fact I won't charge you anything. Pro bono.
