Flashback Friday: CLINIC

28th June 2013

FBFCLINICFor my Flashback Friday, I didn’t go back too far to find Clinic‘s Bubblegum video. Just to 2010!

I was reminded of Bubblegum when the electronic sounding twang that echoes throughout the song got caught in my head, recently. Slow yet upbeat songs tend to get stuck in my head on days when it feels too hot to do things at the fast pace you feel comfortable with.

The songs great but the video is even better. It was done by Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney, who got nominated for one of those music awards that MTV still pointlessly gives out every year.

Monday Mix: Halloween Music!

22nd October 2012

I love that Halloween is approaching, finally!

Not just for the free candy, goofy made up subway goers, and the fun decorations. ITS ALSO A PERFECT EXCUSE FOR A HALLOWEEN MIX!

Last year, I was really excited about gathering a ton of music for my friends Halloween party, but I got distracted by Halloween Horror Nights, getting my grocery shopping done before I turned back into a pumpkin, and figuring out how to make foot high pink bunny ears that stay up while I jump.

This year, my life is much more in order and although my friend is not having another party, I’ve still started accumulating the music I meant to give him last year, through out the month. So heres a couple of the songs I’ve gathered, put into mix form for you!

Dela-ware I Shot The Flaming Lips

12th August 2012

Ever since I worked inside of Milk Studios over the last New York Fashion Week, I’ve been incited by their lifestyle based blog, Milk Made. So when I was asked to go take photos around the first official Firefly Festival, in Delaware, I was excited to work with them again and maybe be able to document people having fun in a state that I had only previously associated with Waynes World.

The festival was great! Hot air balloons filled the skies and I periodically got to fly up in them to see confetti spewing from the stage and onto the crowd. The fair grounds had delicious unique food vendors, 4 main stages, and a cozy little forest that divided all of them. The forest was like a magical nap area for those who didn’t care to hear whatever music was going on at the time. They had used the trees to built a bunch of wooden swings and an anchor for several hammocks.

Firefly Fest was 3 days long and although it was great to see the bands, find grass wedged into my camera bag for the weeks that followed, and see the sights of Delaware, my favorite parts were making paper crafts, seeing old friends, and witnessing the Flaming Lips live. It was the most colorful, exciting live show I’ve ever seen! Heres some photos from my weekend in Delaware.

While I was there, I made the largest functioning paper airplane I’ve ever made!

I met tons of girls that looked like the came out of The Wizard Of Oz

A lot of the musicians yelled and threw things and although I loved that…some of my friends did not.One of the food vendors sold a delicious combo of chicken and waffles and nobody got fat afterwards…because of all the arm raising exercises that were involved in the festivities!

The festival was full of wild animals and rare flowersand rare cases of missing pants!Wayne must have been warned of there scary rarities ahead of time, because he kept his personal bubble with him through out the entire festival.

Put the Pedal To No Metal Music.

24th June 2012

I recently inherited a bicycle, just in time for summer. I’ve owned many bikes in my past, but none as thin and light weight as this one. It seems to make a big difference in how often I want to ride it. Which is all the time, by the way!

My favorite part of riding, has been going up inclines through the park. I love the struggle to make it up a hill that seems never ending. I love it because, when I do finally get to the top, I then get to enjoy the reward of going downhill as the wind cools me off and I stand on my pedals knowing that it is the closest moment I’ll ever come to flying.

Riding my bike has also given me a perfect atmosphere to listen to a certain kind of music that in other situations may come across as really low energy and kind of sad.

I made 2 mixes of music that I’ve been enjoying while I ride my bike. If you’ve been taking advantage of summer bike rides, maybe you’ll enjoy them, too!
