The Best

It appears I have the best friends you could find in the world. When I'm feeling hopeless and things feel desolate, they do things that shock me and distract me and make feel warm. They always take care of me, especially when I feel like don't deserve that sensitivity.


I seem to be blessed.


Thank you Stephanie, Erick, Josh. <3


Love.

Bat for Lashes, Fader Magazine.

I think that Bat for Lashes is probably on my favorite artists of all time list and that's a hard list to hop on. Others include Mew and The Mars Volta. These soft, lovely shots were taken for the Fader Magazine, Issue February 2009. I need to find out what these were shot with. I am assuming a toy camera of some sort, but which, I'm not sure. Maybe my Smena 8m could emulate some of the quality?

Bat for Lashes, Daniel (Jools Holland Live).


Likely my favorite Bat for Lashes song, with a perfect performance. Note the make up? Eh? Eh? Snappy.

Some of his more recent and less obvious work. I look at this and don't immediately think of his work and I think that is a wonderful compliment to his spontenaity.

Buffalo '66, Christina Ricci + King Crimson, Moonchild



Witness Christina Ricci's utterly perfect dance scene in 1998's Buffalo '66 set to King Crimson's Moonchild. This song is the stuff my dreams look like.


Call her moonchild
Dancing in the shallows of a river
Lonely moonchild
Dreaming in the shadows of a willow.
Talking to the trees of the
cobweb strange
Sleeping on the steps of a fountain
Waving silver wands to the
night-birds song
Waiting for the sun on the mountain.

She's a moonchild
Gathering the flowers in a garden.
Lovely moonchild
Drifting in the echoes of the hours.
Sailing on the wind
in a milk white gown
Dropping circle stones on a sun dial
Playing hide and seek
with the ghosts of dawn
Waiting for a smile from a sun child.

I adore Múm so this was a pleasant surprise, a mix of two of my favorite things. Múm and the Japanese language.

Keeping in touch. I think about this every single day that I'm separate from him.

Do you feel like you're in wonderland, or is it just me?

Whenever I look at Clara Larrea's photography, I think, "Wow, I wish I was with them." I'm pretty sure that qualifies as evocative photography if anything does.

Just hand over a camera or two and I'll go quietly.

long ride is long

Pleasant Thanksgiving at the residence of the man's parents! Spending time with someone you love is healing. I even drove him down and the drove myself back up again and so my butt hurts. I thought that was a poignant note.
