I love this poster, I love this line up, and I think it’s going to be a great NYE party at darkroom this year.
I shot this video on my phone between June and now. I figured it was time to edit something together from what I had and this happened. The Radiohead song just sort of fit the length and things matched up quite nice. I think I’ll be doing more and more of this as time goes on.
It’s been a while since I’ve heard anything from Mike Skinner on Twitter, or anywhere else. The Streets have ended but he tweeted a new video from a site called The D.O.T, and after reading this article from The Guardian, I see it’s his new project with Rob Harvey from The Music.
Towards the end of The Streets, Mike was posting a lot of DSLR videos on the site that I think he made himself. These new videos tell stories, show random scenes, and then there’s something like this.
I’m definitely going to make an effort to keep up with The D.O.T. and see what happens, especially with plans of a new album in the works from Mike and Rob.
I’m excited to end the month with two killer gigs back to back at two of my favorite clubs. Bondage shows, Mark Gertz, and an early all Suede set: these are a few of my favorite things.
Lomography announced their first movie camera today, the Lomokino. It’s a handcranked 35mm movie camera. No batteries needed. This is amazing. The videos that are posted look fun. It’s just under a minute of footage per roll of film which can get expensive if you’re making something of considerable length, but who cares! You’re making a damn 35mm movie! On a hand cranked camera! Embrace it. Love it.
I wonder if Super-8 is next for Lomography. Maybe 16mm? Till then, I’m holding back the urge to bust out the credit card and buy my own Lomokino. Check it out here.
UK band Sulk is back with a new video for the song “Back in Bloom”. I can’t wait for a full length album from these guys, or even better a US tour with a stop in Chicago.
