Yet again, I’ve fallen behind. I’m so sorry, little blog friend. I really don’t deserve the responsibility of running a blog when all I do is let you down over and over and over again. But here I am, trying to make amends, by updating you on everything I’ve been doing over the past few months.
Starting with a blog called Past and Pending, founded by my friends Samantha Wyllis and Crispin Lopez. It’s about all kinds of cool pop culture-y stuff like music and concerts and movies, so you should probably check it out. I was brought on to make concert videos, like this one about the bands French Exit and Toys That Kill:
I hadn’t make a video in a while so it was really fun to jump in and make something. I’ve also never shot a live show or interviews before (which is probably totally obvious whoops), but hey, you’ve gotta start somewhere! The bands were super cool, and since then I’ve become a huge fan of Toys That Kill.
I’ve also written a couple of other posts, about heartbreak music and my favorite movies of 2014. And, of course, Sam and Crispin’s posts are worth checking out as well. So why are you still here when you could be over at Past and Pending looking at all of this cool stuff???
Just kidding, come back, I love you! And also have more stuff to show you. Like this random art that really has no home yet, but I still want to share. Behold!
This is the first in what will hopefully be a series of Lolita versions of Disney Princesses, because I am a huge nerd. Both my love of Gothic Lolita and my love of Disney have been well-documented, so this was really a no-brainer for me. I started with Aurora, because Sleeping Beauty is my favorite Disney animated film, and I thought she’d be the easiest to Lolita-fy.
This is inspired by the 99% Invisible podcast about Austrian artist and designer Tausendsassa Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser (“Multi-Talented Peace-Filled Rainy Day Dark-Colored Hundred Waters” in German) known for his unconventional avant-garde structures. I really liked this idea, “the straight line is a godless line,” that humanity is closer to god than perfection. To be human is to be flawed, and that is beautiful.
And here endeth this wonderful tour through the past few months of my productivity.
