vanishment made easy

ph. still from Meeting At Midnight (1944)

Taking a few weeks off from here. I know, you are trying to hold back the tears.

My laptop is a bit screwed up and I need to get it sent in to get it fixed before I leave for Austin. Then I really need to sit down and plan this road trip to Austin and get myself organized for SXSW. The binder is in full effect (some of you guys know what I am talking about, heck yes for OCD)! I am going to be so disgustingly organized compared to last year.

I also need to get film, a new lens for my digital camera, and an external flash, go to the doctor, and blah blah blah

Oy vey!

On the plus side, I have new business cards! Say whaaat???

Anyways, how do you guys feel about these random written posts in addition the photo adventure posts?

Shall I continue doing these or just stick with the photos?

black plague in this city that never sleeps

I am currently experimenting with various films in my LC-A+

These shots are shot with elite chrome, 200 speed pushed to 400 and cross processed.

I know this information is terribly boring but someone always asks which film I am using or camera, so might as while beat them to the punch.

Non Plus One

I wasn't going to post this on here since I've already posted it a little while back on my tumblr (my inspiration blog) but I couldn't resist.

This is truly lovely and incredibly enjoyable.

Gia Coppola co-directed this with Tracey Antonopoulos.

This short stars Jason Schwartzman (I swear I'll stop talking about him) and Kirsten Dunst. It's in support of the new line at Opening Ceremony.

The first minute is silent but after that your ears will have the pleasure of hearing Jason's band, Coconut Records playing. The song is called "Is This Sound Okay?"

I really adore this short and wish real life were like this.

Also, why wasn't I born a Coppola? Something in the genes, man. Everyone in that family is so incredibly talented. Have you guys SEEN Gia Coppola's photos? If you haven't you need to. Check it here. I count her as one of my inspirations.

Bande A Part

The Band Of Outsiders presentation was definitely one of my favorites from fashion week. My love for Band Of Outsiders runs deep. I've always been a big fan of their clothes and their lookbooks. I think that it is pretty genius that their campaigns are shot with polaroids. And you KNOW how much I love polaroids.

Obviously, I loved the lookbook with Jason Schwartzman. But I also really enjoyed the Marisa Tomei, Michelle Williams, Kirsten Dunst and of course the Sarah Silverman ones. Here is a example of their campaigns. Don't we all wish we were this cool? Do you think they are accepting applications to be a in the band?

Anyways, here are my photos. Shot with 35mm film.

F/W 2010

(Sorry these recent posts are so lame and scattered. Stressing with SXSW planning. Seriously, it's in about two weeks!)

death by audio

I left early that evening we went to this show at Death By Audio, but caught some decent bands while I was there. I really dug Beach Fossils and Nude Beach, I wish I weren't such an old lady and stayed for The Beets. I wonder if they played such hits like "Killer Tofu" or "Banging on a Trash Can" but I think that was Doug Funnie's band and not the Beets? ANYWAYS, this would only make is sense if you watched Doug when you were younger. You know those songs were the shit back in the day.

And apparently Oliver from A Place To Bury Strangers lives at Death By Audio? Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Here are some photos from my little lomo.

P.S. I have mad respect for a band that put their stuff on cassette with cool art work. I buy that shit all the time. Just based on the pure awesomeness of it.

Nude Beaches

Beach Fossils

the summer of '79

there was that time we time travelled to see Lightspeed Champion play.

ain't that the truth, ruth

Variety is a crack house because they serve Stumptown coffee. Now, when I run out of the beans I bought from there, Caitlin will have to become my supplier.

i've heard a rumour from ground control

Yesterday I hung out at Christian Joy's (best known for her stage costume designs for Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) studio whilst my friend Caitlin worked. It was interesting observing what goes on behind making a piece and the other inner workings of a designer. I am really intrigue by interiors, especially that of someone who creates. I think it says a lot of about a person. Christiane's studio gave off really great vibes, very warm and inviting. It felt like home. I loved a lot of the inspiration photographs on the wall and the huge dreamcatcher. Thanks again Christiane for letting me hang out and snap photos!

here should be my home

you were a judge but you knew no justice

Saw Delta Spirit and The Willowz twice last week. Once at Pianos and then the following night at Union Hall. It was a lot of fun. It's always a pleasure seeing Delta Spirit. I also met some cool new people and got some quality hang time with Kamni before she left for Pakistan.

(photos are from both nights, too lazy to put them in order)

I need to find a hat like Jessica's.
