Anama Baf-Hemsh

Bill has been sending over photos from his summer travels so far and I'm pretty jealous to say the least. Starting in London, he's made it down to Cairo by train where he'll be until the end of July. He was also in Istanbul when the Turkish ship was attacked by Israeli soldiers (the first photo below). Crazy stuff. Looking forward to seeing more and hearing stories. Stay safe, pal.

Currently Listening: Prizes (formerly Treasure)

PRIZES (formerly known as Treasure) - "Canada" from Jamie Harley on Vimeo.

Another found footage type of music video. This time, Jamie Harley takes the skeeve out of the Pamela Anderson sex tape and turns it into an intimate honeymoon video with two normal people. Really well done. Oh, and the song is good too. Listen more here.

Tonight


I contributed some filming duties for the new KCDC Featurette, premiering tonight at Motor City. Should be good. Come out for a few.


Whelp

This one is a bit of an eye opener:

Heroin Stamp Project

"In the New York City drug trade, as in many enterprises, marketing and branding is key.

The words and images stamped on packets of heroin — from the phrase “Cop n Go” to “White Fang” - serve the same purpose as a corporate logo. The images and phrases are used to brand a particular set of stamp bags, and brand a particular batch of heroin known on the streets by that stamp.

For decades these stamps have bred brand loyalties that walk a very thin line between dying and getting a good high: the most popular stamps are most often the most potent and deadly. Blown up larger than life these beautiful, fascinating and unsettling images of the stamps hint at a complex chain from supplier to dealer, the dynamics of drug markets and the story of the marketing of addiction on the streets of NYC."

Great idea for a show. Looking forward to checking it out. Read the New York Times article here.

Got this mystery roll developed yesterday and found a few gems on there. These must be from 2006? 2007?

Washed Out, "New Theory"

Digging this new video from Washed Out, made by Quatorlindsay. The vintage skate footage goes perfect with the sort of dream pop sound of Washed Out. Check out a few other videos he did here.

Smolder Previews

Started working on some new Smolder stuff. Although it'll be quite less acoustic than what's going to be on the split with Gold Mold, it's still in the same vein somewhat (or so I'd like to think). Here's a pic of the messy set up I'm working with:

More electronics than previous stuff but still keeping it analog as well. You can preview a live excerpt of "Go Home" and a demo of "Wind Collar" on the Myspace. These are in their infant stage, so bare with me. Hopefully I'll get around to playing these live soon.
