I feel like death...

For real. Straight-up death. And I'm sure I don't look all that pleasant right now either. According to Dan from work, I looked like a zombie all through my shift which is probably pretty accurate.

I've got about three rolls of film over at the camera shop and no money to pick them up :'( Very sad. I've also got two more that I need developed, so hopefully I can get that done soon. I really need to invest in getting my darkroom set up finally.

Anyway, once that gets done, I should have some new pictures.

ALSO!!! MARCH 13TH!!! I helped book a show!!! You should come to it!!!

Free and BYOB.

I'll have a flyer up soon. Maybe tomorrow.

In the meantime, more music recommendations.

Furnace - Self-titled 7"


I've been really into these guys for about a year, but last night was the first time I've actually gotten to see them and they didn't disappoint. Fast and spastic hardcore that's still heavy as hell. The self titled is great, but go see these guys live if you can.

The Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2


On almost the complete opposite side of the spectrum, The Microphones' best album. This is a hard one to describe. It'd be much easier if you just listened to it. Start to finish though, none of this skipping around and listening to one or two tracks out of order.

Ok, I think that's all for now. I'm gonna go be sick for awhile.

Julian (Valentine's) Day

There's some more of these coming soon once I get the film developed. Hopefully they came out. This was my first time using 3200 film, so we shall see.

Julian Day on Valentine's Day February 2009.





Also, here's some album recommendations for the hell of it.

Wolves in the Throne Room - Two Hunters


Somewhere between Godspeed's Yanqui U.X.O. and Mayhem. One of the most oddly beautiful epic albums I've heard. Right up there with, coincidentally, U.X.O.

Jin'rik'sha - End Present (2x7")


Some very heavy His Hero is Gone-esque crust from Norway where all punk of this ilk should come from. As far as I'm aware, this is the only thing these guys ever put out which is really unfortunate because this is an excellent EP. If you can find a copy great, but if not here's a link.

The Sea Like Lead / Belegost - Split LP


The Belegost side is possibly the better of the two, but it's a great split all around. It would've been interesting to see a collaborative effort between these two bands at some point, but alas, they both are defunct now.

Ok, that's all for now. Enjoy your weekend.

Photographer Highlight: Kentaro Takahashi

Check out his website and his flickr.

Great portraits and some of the best neo-noir stuff I've seen in quite awhile.

Also, I've been doing some more experimentation my Lensbaby. You can get some really awesome effects with it, but it is a tricky lens to operate. Starting to get the hang of it though.




Trip to Chicago seems to be happening, so I should have some new interesting stuff for you guys when I get back on the 16th.

Take care of each other.

No matter how depressed I become...

...I can always rely on Morrissey as a constant source of amusement.

I will get around to posting more pictures soon. I've just been lacking so much motivation lately and that really needs to change.

On that note, here's a few more pictures from the beach.
