Au Revoir Simone



It's official . . . today I cancelled my hotel reservations in Raleigh. I'm not going to Hopscotch (anybody want a VIP wristband?).  Not going to Bumbershoot this year, either, breaking a four-year streak.  And I quit MFNW (RIP) a year ago.

Everything's impermanent and nothing lasts forever.  The physical pleasure which a certain woman gave you at a certain moment, the exquisite dish which you ate on a certain day - you will never meet either again. Nothing is repeated, and everything is unparalleled.

Springtime Carnivore

Springtime Carnivore at Vinyl, February 22, 2015
LA's Springtime Carnivore have released an innovative and visually refreshing video for their song, Other Side of the Boundary.  I used to enjoy making white-bordered collages similar to the motif of this video.  Music Dissolves Water approves of this video.

Godspeed


I did this almost two years ago, but I'm not sure if I ever posted it here or not.
