Spotify Yourself

Hey ya'll,

in case you're not up on the next big thing when it comes to music and internet and being cool, check out Spotify.

Download the little app and then play just about any music you can think of. I've only been using it for about 20 minutes but I've heard good things from others and everything I see is beautiful and what music should be in this day and age.

Oh, you may have to wait to be invited but my invite came fairly shortly... just sayin.

I'm Turning Into a Dad

I realize that with posting blogs that are primarily "update" oriented and are focused more on pictures than on posing ideas or thoughts, that I am 1. getting lazy / using Twitter too much and 2. turning into a Dad who's just filling the grandparents in on the new baby's latest quirk.

Anyways, Jorjette and I took a little trip to Hotlanta this past week to visit the Boyers/Renos/Rufenachts(who actually have a baby) and we carpooled with a certain Michael Goodrich as he was visiting his hardworking wife who had a tradeshow she was working.

Highlights of the week included seeing everyone, the Bodies exhibit (controversy and all), the High Museum of Art, drinks on the top floor of the Westin, the Renos' apartment complex's salt water pool, and driving through the night (the driving actually kind of sucked...).

I didn't exactly have my camera with me most of the time... but here are some pics.

Sufjan and His Videos

Perhaps this is insulting to ask considering Sufjan made the rather extensive BQE audio/video project and I know his concerts are always visually stunning, but does the guy have music videos for any of his other songs? I feel like I should know this...

Anyways, here's the new video to his song "Get Real, Get Right" off of Age of Adz. A thing so bizarre and creative and fantastic that seems only fitting for Sufjan.

Oh, and the last lyrics of the song are pretty neat:
For you will not be distracted by the signs
Do not be distracted by them
Do yourself a favor and get real
Get right with the Lord
Get real, get right with the Lord

A Very Independent Concert Night

Jorje and I spent the 4th of July shopping at Edinburgh (too many sales...), scampering around Indy for the afternoon, and then seeing Florence + the Machine later in the evening. It was, as Jorje put it, one of the best concerts we've been to. Florence and the band sounded great, she had a fantastic wavy green dress on in which she loved to twirl around in, and fireworks finished the show off. Here are a few pics from the Touch ... I forgot my actual camera so these will have to do.

Yours truly
Florence + Fireworks!
