“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.”
you have to check out some of these entries from Ottawa’s Eco Art photo contest. Great stuff.

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.

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’m suddenly very homesick
Damien Rice isn’t the same now that he’s not with Lisa Hannigan anymore. This is so amazing, check it out

Girl Talk is musical graffiti to my ears. Building beauty upon what is already founded, turning it into something completely new!
