I took this photo as I was walking home one night in Shiho Kitazawa. The city was dead other than the occasional drunken businessman who was either passed out or heavily stumbling in compliance with his inner compass. I came across this stand, the woman never turned around to see who was behind her which I thought was strange. Maybe with such low crime in Japan people don’t worry about someone sneaking up on them, or maybe she didn’t hear me… Either way, it was a strange moment and I’m glad I took a picture of it.
Since it’s October and I just watched one of the best scary movies in the world the other night with a group of friends who all passed out like a bunch of babies, I wanted to post this polaroid of the make over that was given to me compliments of beauty blog, The Glittered Age. They went all out and set me up with a killer make over that I’d be happy to wear everyday of my life if I didn’t have prior obligations. The whole deal was: I’d let her do as she wanted as long as I got to eat ice cream during. The photo and makeup came out amazing against the gold wall of my hallway.
A friend of mine has an aunt who was the typist and photographer behind the legendary movie, “Pulp Fiction” which has just hit it’s 20th year anniversary. It never really shocks me to hear about how talented her family is because she herself is an amazingly stunning person. Someone who you instantly feel drawn towards as if her bulb was illuminating your moth like brain. I wanted to post this because Pulp Fiction in my opinion is easily pound for pound the best movie filmed in the last 35 years and I think it will bring a smile to Sage’s face to see this random post from me today.
Awhile ago we went to a secret location to listen to analog real time 3D sound design in a pitch dark room. Most people left, got sick, or felt strange if they stayed the duration of the performance. This was a picture of the waiting room there. I thought the angle of the stairs and the placement of the water fountain was really cool.
I’m out and about in the world where it’s proving to be pretty tuff to find wi-fi and also making me not want to be on a computer much. So with that said, for all you new folks in Japan, Australia, France, and Indonesia checking in with the site, please look through the archives… there’s some good stuff on there. For all you folk who have been checking in, do what you want haha. I’ll get back to it in a couple of weeks or so. Thanks for messages about my where abouts and hope y’all new folk enjoy.
Saw this picture from the Polar Jungle and I think it’s the one that has just gotten me excited about posting stuff again. I think about buildings a lot. When I was younger I wanted to be and engineer that did seismic retrofitting and that’s actually why SF has always been a fascination of mine. I knew they had tall buildings, big bridges, and earthquakes. This picture brought me back to middle school when I would day dream about standing under buildings and looking up, watching them stretch into the blue.
Haven’t posted in a little bit because I was just over it. I wasn’t feeling like putting shit up for people to look at and spend more times on their computers. I appreciate the the questions about what was going on. So here’s what’s going on APEX and the Werehaus boys got together and painted the infamous mini van that has literally seen every corner of the United States. Check the flyer and video out below and make it out Friday for a very weird gathering at the SF DMV.
Because today is a very foggy and beautiful day. Thank you Terry Barentsen. You once again have done the work for us.
Wanted to put this video by Chairlift up because I really like the foggy color that they edited it with. I thought to myself, “hmm.. that video would prolly look good on the site.” Is is so bad that I only picked this because I wanted to see how it would look on the site? I don’t think so and if you do, well then you are worrying about the wrong things in life.
This music video is about the most embarrassing thing I can think of to show of myself. I hate that I’m in it so much. I was for some reason trying to grow a beard and an afro at the same time… not a good idea. Anyway, I had watched this Spike Lee movie with my friend Sanja and I got to thinking about how annoying the black race can be. I know it sounds like some self hate but really, it’s an observation I’ve made for years. I see so many black people just throwing in the towel before they even step into the ring and it hurts my heart. I’m not saying every black person does this, but for the most part, what you see in San Francisco…isn’t the best representation of the culture. Shortly after making this song I lost all feelings towards this type of music… I needed to do something unexpected. The reason I’m posting this today is because I got an email from someone asking about the 1865 stuff and if I was ever going to make another hip hop album. It’s crazy that I get a couple of emails a year saying something simular, all very flattering and appreciated. It makes me happy, but in reply to the very much appreciated email: No way BREH… hip hop is weird… it ain’t in my heart.
I randomly walked into Relove on Polk st. about 8 months ago and bought 4-5 pieces from the store. I typically don’t like to get more than one thing from a store because I value my random approach to fashion but this store was special. I liked it so much that I decided to interview the owner Delila Hailechristos about some random things on my mind.
Delilah went to the University of Minnesota because she had a sister who was in attendance there. We are talking about her experience there.
I wen’t off on this thought about star formation and human awareness and how some people are good at self regulating and others, not so much.
I love this shot from Lane Coder because of it’s disconnected lighting. The blown out window combined with the models lay gives this whole thing a feeling of being in a trance. I’ve been feeling like a zombie these days because I’ve just been addicted to practicing music…at times I find myself not even really playing anything that makes sense… I’ll zone out for 5 or so minutes and when I come back to reality it’s just a lot of noise. I’ve always made music like that. It’s like learning how to be unconscious while being aware of your unconscious state. Anyway…this picture gives me that same feeling.
Last night someone came up to me and said, “I listened to your music…really different sounding stuff… it’s like, you’re in a dance party on your way to Hell.” I really got a kick out of that because this person had been thinking about how to sum up the sound and I think it’s beautiful when art makes people think and travel within their own head. Fast forward a couple of hours and I’m walking down the street with some friends and I see what you see below… I instantly felt like I was in a dance party on my way to hell. Things have been aligning with me like crazy these days… so much so that if I were to speak honestly about it, I’d lose credibility. This world is ran by invisible aliens. I’m so thankful we get along.
