NIMROD KAMER: The Sartorialist is the most famous fashion
blogger in history.
It is my lifelong dream to be on his blog.
Because quintessentially, I'm a piece of street art.
You waiting for the book?
-Yeah.
NIMROD KAMER: You know it's 20 quid and it's just pictures of
people in the streets.
Are you a big fan of the Sartorialist?
-Yes.
NIMROD KAMER: I love him.
I think he's like redic and unconvent hashtag.
#fab, #marv, #immense, #incred, OMG, WTF.
Those girls were HAStags--
hashtag for has-beens.
Are you single?
-Sorry?
NIMROD KAMER: Are you single?
-Single or singer?
-Yeah, he's available.
NIMROD KAMER: Single.
I mean, emotionally available.
-Emotionally?
I'm not sure I'm emotionally stable to
be emotionally available.
NIMROD KAMER: I'm into guys now, because I want to be in
the Sartorialist.
Do you have any friends on the book?
I'm on it.
-OK.
NIMROD KAMER: Yeah, on page 16 if there wasn't a mistake.
-You would need to pay for this scarf in this department.
NIMROD KAMER: Oh, I'm still staying in the floor though.
-That's all right, but you would need to pay the scarf in
this department.
NIMROD KAMER: So I'll keep it here for a sec, and I'll come
back to pay.
-I can hold it for you.
That's fine.
NIMROD KAMER: It goes well with the book.
I just want to have the look for the book signing.
-No problem.
NIMROD KAMER: Because I just want the blogger to like me.
-Yeah.
NIMROD KAMER: That's his thing.
Fashion street art.
-I know.
NIMROD KAMER: Hey, hello.
My name is Nimrod.
SCOTT SCHUMAN: Hi, how are you?
NIMROD KAMER: Like the Green Day album.
SCOTT SCHUMAN: Ah.
NIMROD KAMER: Nimrod.
Actually, instead of signing the book, can you mention me
on Twitter?
SCOTT SCHUMAN: I don't know.
I don't usually do that but I can sign the book.
NIMROD KAMER: But can you--
SCOTT SCHUMAN: Is that fair?
NIMROD KAMER: --put my name on Twitter, like on
your Twitter feed?
SCOTT SCHUMAN: I don't know.
I'll think about it.
NIMROD KAMER: OK.
And basically I have this photo if you want to
use it in your blog.
Just go and consider it.
It's me on a snowball.
SCOTT SCHUMAN: I see that.
NIMROD KAMER: Yeah.
SCOTT SCHUMAN: Huh.
NIMROD KAMER: Think about it.
Yeah, you can leave it.
SCOTT SCHUMAN: I'll put it right there.
NIMROD KAMER: And can I follow you?
SCOTT SCHUMAN: You what?
NIMROD KAMER: Can I follow you?
SCOTT SCHUMAN: Sure.
NIMROD KAMER: I mean follow--
SCOTT SCHUMAN: You're welcome.
NIMROD KAMER: Follow you home, whatever?
SCOTT SCHUMAN: Probably not home, but we'll figure
something out.
NIMROD KAMER: OK.
I love the tie.
SCOTT SCHUMAN: Thank you.
-Thank you very much.
-So you bought it?
NIMROD KAMER: I didn't buy it.
I just took it from the shelf, had it signed.
And then actually I also tried to sell it to someone else.
Do you want to buy a book from me with my
signature for 25 quid?
-So now you're waiting in line to do it again?
NIMROD KAMER: Yeah, to sell it to another
person for more money.
Because you need to make some money.
I mean, all the money goes to Sartorialist.
You want to make some money.
-But it's 5 quid!
NIMROD KAMER: It's profit for me.
-I know, but that's like $7 US.
NIMROD KAMER: But I do it 10 times.
If you want to buy my book signed for just 5 more quid.
-Oh, OK.

NIMROD KAMER: Because he takes advantage of the street, he
should give back money to the streets, basically.
Can I just leave the book here because I'm not sure I want it
now?
-But it's been signed?
NIMROD KAMER: Yeah, it's been signed.
But I forgot to buy before, and now I think I'm just going
to leave it here if it's OK.
-OK, yeah.
I'm sure that's fine.
Have a good day.
NIMROD KAMER: But you can use the signature.

NIMROD KAMER: No.
I mean, I don't have the book.
I had it signed, and then I left it.

NIMROD KAMER: Yeah, because I just had it signed, and then I
just regretted it.
NIMROD KAMER: I can't resell?
OK, OK.
