Broken Manual

The Sartorialist has a most interesting interview up with the photographer Alec Soth discussing his latest show broken manual. I liked what he said about having his work displayed.

“I’ve never been more nervous for a show than this one, and I’ve been trying to figure out why. I don’t think it is about my relationship with the subjects, it has to do with something more personal. I joke that Broken Manual is my midlife crisis project…but it isn’t such a joke.”

I especially got a kick out of the strategic tree placements


birds flying high, you know how I feel

I was surfing online for photos of my ultimate destination in may and ran across these photos. They were taken from a hot air balloon around London, ON. They remind me of some of the things I think about when I paint. I’m not sure. I think the things I see in nature that are tied so deeply with creation affect my work. Nature’s a big inspiration for me. What inspires your work? Whatever it might be.  The photographer’s info can be found here.

breakdown of revolution

I have this thing where I pick songs apart in my head. The layering of instruments fascinates me, ever since I was in band as a kid. Here’s one of my favorite examples. Check out the different guitar parts and how amazing it is that the brain just layers them together! Its crazy!  Later when u put on ur ipod, I guarantee you’ll think of this and then it’ll drive you nuts that you can’t just listen to the song like a normal person lols, u’ll hate me

thoughts on album art

I think that album art is insanely important to music. There’s something almost nostalgic about listening to a record while brushing your thumbs over the cover, trying to figure out what made the musician choose that particular image or images.  I view it as a map to guide the listener to the emotional point of view of the composer. . . . yet as always, leaving interpretation up to the individual.  Curse downloading!!!! why’s it so convenient!!!!  Anywho, I”m in love with Damien Rice’s album art, I always have been.

I have a hard time with covers sometimes, but this is undeniably genius. . . in my humble opinion of course
