watch “taken for a fool” above; i love it, reminds me of when i saw this installation @ the whitney biennial in 2004: Fireflies on the Water by Yayoi Kusama (below). it’s firefly season right? i been seeing them on my night-time neighborhood strolls. far out!

the strokes, “i’ll try anything once”

January 1st, 2011 No Comments

everyone knows that the musical scores to sofia coppola’s films are as memorable as the movie itself. having just seen her new film “somewhere,” which i highly recommend, this early, tender strokes song (a demo) really stood out and stays on. music nerd sidebar: compare the low-fi demo with the record version below which became […]

Lolla Day 3

August 8th, 2010 No Comments

[…]

Lolla Day 1, ya beautiful

August 7th, 2010 No Comments

Lady Gaga came with a “message” for her fans to be whomever they want. If that means committing multiple fashion crimes, then I disagree. I saw way too much flesh yesterday—muddy, body painted, cellulite gnarliness. Ick. Anyway, I only overheard Gaga’s message in the aftermath, though, as I was at the other end of the […]

Jamie D’s Lolla 2010 preview

August 5th, 2010 No Comments

(Sorry, had to be specific since I know Giselle is going to through hers up and people are going to be all confused and ish.) For the past 5 years I’ve called Grant Park home for 3 days in early August. It’s been an awesome experience in it’s own unique way each year and I fear for […]
