you've got rimbaud eyes.

Hey, hey, hey! I am back from the dead, at least it feels like it.

Overworking yourself and a few stints in the hospital would cause anyone to realize that they are not superhuman. Damn, I was really hoping I was...

I skipped the traditional NYE posts this year because there is a whole new flood of things about to happen this year with me and all my talented friends. 2014 should be a doozy. I know every year is "the year" and not to say that is one will be "IT", but there is definitely something in the universe indicating that this year will be a big year of transformation for all of us.

Right now I leave you with some new Dum Dum Girls songs. The new album is stellar and I can't wait for everyone to hear it in it's full glory! 

Ladies (and gents), if you didn't already know, there is a Dum Dum Boy now, Andrew! He's totally awesome and dreamy, duh!

Things to look forward to here on 'Drowning in the Flame', *please try to imagine me saying this as if I were an E! News commentator...

Photographs from my tours with Those Darlins, Gambles, Crocodiles, Wymond Miles and just everyday adventures, film reviews, book reviews, fashion posts, etc. 

Let's get this site lively again!

this is halloween

Hey guys!!

I know it's been forever and a day since I've made a new post. Going to try and do better with this.

Just got done with a mini stint with Those Darlins and Gambles and can't wait to get all my film developed and edit the photos from my digital. If you are on instagram, you can see what photos I've taken on my phone from this mini adventure. My username is patricesharon, say 'hi'!

In other news, today, like everyone, it is my favorite holiday! HALLOWEEN! I always feel like a little kid when Halloween rolls around. Although, I do not attend the parties or do anything particularly cool. I like to dress up still and hand out candy and have a day of watching classic horror films.

This year I'm Lydia Deetz. It only seems appropriate.

"my whole life is darkroom, one big darkroom" - Lydia (Beetlejuice)

I also have this weird ever growing obsession with 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'. I must have watched it at least several times this month. It never get's old. Tim Burton = GENIUS.

"Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones, an emptiness began to grow. There’s something out there far from my home, a longing that I’ve never known"

Is it me, or is there something in the air? It seems like a lot of my friends, more so than usual, are in the doldrums. Sure, seasonal depression is common during this time of year, yet there is a little something extra going on. Not just feeling in a funk, but people's energy is not only melancholic but anxious at the same time. I don't know if  that makes any sense, I am probably talking out my ass but there is something weird going on. The universe is trying to tell us something. 

Lastly, I'd like to announce I will be joining Crocodiles on tour starting in Chicago and ending in Brooklyn. Here are the dates and details. Hope to see some familiar faces out there and meet some new ones!

Until next time...

Hey guys, I know it's been a hot minute since I've update the site. Things are crazy around here. One might even say that my life is rather surreal at the moment and I couldn't be happier. So many exciting things coming up within the next several months, one of which is my return back to University and finishing up my degree and also toying with the idea of film school. AHHHH!! 

More updates about what I've been up to the past few months very soon. Until then, enjoy the new SISU video. It's completely hypnotic. 

Make sure to catch them on tour with Dirty Beaches this fall, I will be at a few of the dates, so come hang!

Sandy Vu (Dum Dum Girls & SISU)

In the summer in LA, we eat popsicles and hang eternally loose at BBQs or manmade lakes. Echo Park Lake just opened again, so I am particularly looking forward to the parade of bare bellies and men in tank tops. The smog blanket gets even thicker and makes an especially psychedelic sunset behind those transplanted palm trees. That is my favorite.

Felt - Sunlight Bathed the Golden Glow

The Zombies - Walking In The Sun

Dawn Penn - It Must Be Him

SISU's dreamy video for "Two Thousand Hands" has made it's debut today on SPIN! Some serious sultriness going on here. I adore the song and video and can't wait until their full length is released. It's going to be amazing, y'all!
