textile : rolling out mini weavings this week

by admin on September 19, 2012

I have huge love for Sheila Hicks and after seeing her show decided to make my own mini weavings. The materials include handmade printed and twisted yarn, natural fibers and rubber. There will be a total of 10 and may be available on Etsy someday. I was thinking they would be nice framed… we’ll see.

MUSIC monday (on Wednesday) : people get ready

by admin on September 19, 2012

I saw the Brooklyn band People Get Ready open for Deerhoof on Monday and they were impressive. Catch ‘em if you can. Gase and Buke were even more impressive. For only two people they sure can make complex music. I liked them more than Deerhoof which is saying a lot because they are pretty awesome too.

They ran a kickstarter campaign last year to raise funds to make an album. The sound isn’t great but it’s a nice little video with lots of hidden messages.

August 29, 2012

Sometimes I like a music video more than the song. That’s what happened here. Maybe the song will grow on me but I will (almost) always love a good stop motion video. Thank you An Horse.

MUSIC monday : Trampled by Turtles

August 20, 2012

I’ve been listening to the album Stars and Satellites by Trampled by Turtles everyday for the past two weeks and thought I’d share. If you’re looking for a happy tune, this is not it (the title “Alone” might be a hint) but it does get quite snappy towards the end. Happy Monday!

MUSIC monday is BACK with Buke & Gase

August 13, 2012

It’s Monday, absolutely gorgeous out and it’s time to get the week started. Watching this video woke me up and energized me to make things happen. A new favorite, Buke & Gase is a Brooklyn-based band comprised of Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez. Pitchfork described their music as “a kind of throttling-by-bungee madness and unpredictability”, but in a [...]
