for the weirdos…

Sat, 16 Aug 2014 19:19:06 +0000

Tori slays this cover of ‘Creep’. Reminds me of how Jeff Buckley could make me hear an old song with new ears.

how wolves change rivers

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 20:14:56 +0000

Awed by the web of life! How reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone Park changed the entire ecosystem.



ever-changing NYC

Sat, 23 Nov 2013 19:30:37 +0000

This article in NYT Magazine had us laughing and sighing with nostalgia: A Reason to Root for Dubai on the Hudson. …into the 1990s, when I got out of college and moved back to New York. In those days, in my 20s, with nothing but time on my hands, my favorite activity was to tromp […]



phadroid

Sat, 24 Aug 2013 17:57:51 +0000

The latest thrill over here is the discovery of Phadriod—a husband & wife collaboration between Android Jones (a laser projectionist) and Phaedra (an interpretive dancer). Phaedra dances in a flowing white robes while Android projects images onto her moving body. Most of the time she performs in front of a giant screen, but sometimes she […]

“…a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. [Simon Christen] chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.” Even without time-lapse, the fog rolling in from the coast will leave me breathless […]

to old to be new, to young to be classic

Thu, 16 May 2013 18:17:26 +0000

Charmed by this surprisingly engaging mini-doc about indie music label DFA. I wasn’t even THAT interested, but it pulled me right in. (Made by Red Bull Music Academy. Found on RDuJour.)



inner demons

Thu, 16 May 2013 01:48:53 +0000

Loving this dark and luscious music video for “White Noise” by Exitmusic. The imagery is such a perfect depiction of what its like to wrestle with our inner demons. Parts of self that entrap, suffocate, drown other parts of self. Great song too. Aleksa’s customary warbling reminds me a little of Cher in this song […]



the depressing elation of bittersweet rock anthems about youth

Thu, 02 May 2013 18:41:39 +0000

Here’s a cool cover of Bruce’s Glory Days by Basia Bulat. It’s the pianoette that really makes it work! This got me pondering the weird power the original Glory Days and songs of that ilk—-those raucous, feet-stomping, hand-clapping anthems that get people singing, smiling, laughing and YET the song permeates you with a bittersweet melancholia. […]



tippi & her friends

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 22:24:37 +0000

Yes, things like this are happening in the world (!) Tippi’s story will give you heart explosions. (Thank you to Kate for sending!) Original link with lots of photos here. And be sure to watch the doc trailer…

earth bag homes in haiti

Fri, 01 Feb 2013 16:36:57 +0000

Just read about Konbit Shelter’s successful kickstarter campaign to go back to rural Haiti and teach people how to build solid, sustainable earth bag structures. Not only fascinating and brilliant, but also some of the loveliest hand-made houses I’ve ever seen.

Brilliant revelation or reminder.

RIVETING. (This performance has 13.5 million views… about 3.5 of those views were mine.)



the first 70

My sister-in-law sent this to me. Looks like a gorgeous and important documentary.

Not crazy about the video (though it is appropriately Halloween-y), but the synths make me high.

Céline and Jesse… the saga continues!



junk dna apparently not “junk”

Sun, 23 Sep 2012 03:04:35 +0000

Breakthrough study overturns theory of ‘junk DNA’ in genome “Long stretches of DNA previously dismissed as “junk” are in fact crucial to the way our genome works, an international team of researchers said on Wednesday. It is the most significant shift in scientists’ understanding of the way our DNA operates since the sequencing of the […]



dreams

Thu, 16 Aug 2012 01:05:16 +0000

The Kills (my current fave rock band) cover Dreams on the new Fleetwood Mac cover album–which is actually quite good.



riot grrls!

Tue, 31 Jul 2012 17:54:33 +0000

The Pussy Riot trial began in Moscow yesterday and is said to be the trial that will “set the tone” for Putin’s repeat “Presidency” (aka Dictatorship.) If you don’t know the story behind Pussy Riot, start here. It’s pretty fck’n awesome. Quick summary: ultra-intelligent feminist punk rock girl group takes on the new Russian dictatorship. […]

Totally sci-fi. See larger version (by Ryan Brenizer) here.

cloud atlas

Fri, 27 Jul 2012 01:52:56 +0000

The Wachowski siblings of The Matrix and Tom Twyker of Run Lola Run (two of the best movies ever made) came together to adapt the novel Cloud Atlas into a screenplay and then tri-direct the film. The six minute long trailer looks tremendous in scope. Even though it was rumored to cost 100 million to […]



BFD rock fest

Tue, 05 Jun 2012 23:53:21 +0000

Shirley Manson & K. Flay (keep your eye on her)… two of Peter’s bad ass photos of from Live 105’s BFD rock festival this past weekend. You can see more of his fantastic (!) photos of Garbage, Silversun Pickups, Jane’s Addiction, Cake, Falling in Reverse, GROUPLOVE, Neon Trees, K.Flay, St. John and Eligh & Amp […]



20 seconds to sign your name?

Tue, 05 Jun 2012 18:24:37 +0000

FOOD is, arguably, foundational to any cause you care about. Without healthy food/agriculture, in a couple of decades, we’ll be such a sickly species that we will not have the strength and stamina to take care of our children, animals and the earth. Let’s make sure that the 2012 FARM BILL—a federal bill that resets […]



the elephant whisperer

Sun, 03 Jun 2012 22:27:07 +0000

One of two processions of elephants that mysteriously showed up to mourn the death of Lawrence Anthony, known as the Elephant Whisperer. For 12 hours, two herds of wild South African elephants slowly made their way through the Zululand bush until they reached the house of late author Lawrence Anthony, the conservationist who saved their […]
