27 Things I Overheard At James Franco's Pace Gallery Opening

"Selfie and leave?"

Posted on

I attended the public opening reception to – honestly – try and see him in person. I did not. I did, however, hear a lot of things.

2. "Holy shit," said pretty much everyone approaching the mile-long line outside.


7. "Just live your life, don't worry about what someone's doing on their phone."

When you get free wine, things can get pretty philosophical.

10. "I don't mind it... but I don't like it."

I then realized these individuals were not discussing Franco's work.


13. "Did you take it!? Is it good!? Take one more," some woman holding one of the photographs hostage.


15. "Find one we can Instagram."

18. "Take one of me and then we need one together."

20. "They have super thick glass, have you noticed? I noticed."

*touches glass*


23. *Laughter* – Some guy just pointing and laughing at a piece.

27. "I'm sad James Franco isn't actually here."
