Listen to the Light.

Screen shot 2011-10-04 at 10.48.39 AM

My dear friends Ryan and Hays Holladay make music together under the name Bluebrain. They’ve been doing this for a few years now. What they’ve also been doing in addition to making music is making weird, technology/music hybrid projects like the one they just released today called Listen to the Light. It’s the second in a series of “location-aware” albums wherein you download an app to your smart phone, plug in your headphones and walk around Central Park. The interesting part is the phone’s built in GPS triggers different pieces of music depending on what area of the park you’re in. They also did one for the National Mall in DC.

Listen to the Light just got released today and I’m very psyched about it. Check it out if you’re interested in music and technology, which, if you’re on an art/literature blog right now, is safe to assume you might be.

Tonight in DC. 3500 K Street Northwest. My friends in Bluebrain are curating a night of jams and love. We sponsored the whole deal. What does this mean? Well, it means you may or may not be able to get your hands on a free copy of Annalemma Issue Six: Sacrifice. You’ll just have to go and find out.8pm. BYOB.

Some random images from the holiday weekend:

This was Chase’s first attempt at a fried turkey. I thought it was delicious. But I think he was expecting the heavens to open up and waves of light to wash over him as he took the first bite. He was a bit let down.

Also, congrats to Chase for receiving the nod from Pitchfork for one of the best vids of ’09!


This guy was turning his beak up to all the turkeys that got screwed this year. Don’t get cocky dude, Christmas is just around the corner and I ain’t never cooked a goose before.


Or a turkeygoose.


We played a show. This guy’s band didn’t show up and he had to play all his jams solo. The brass balls on this dude. Hats off to you sir.


Viernes with their new multimedia setup.


It wouldn’t be Turkey Day without football.


And it wouldn’t be football without me wishing I was in the marching band.

I was about to make a joke along the lines that I was forming an all-tuba band and call it Tuba Gooding Jr. But apparently he already exists.


In other news, I met a Transformer.


And the cute alert has been ringing off the hook.

Back to work! Back to burning calories! Keeping the gut at bay! To pressing forward and pressing hard until the end of the year! Finish line is in sight everyone! Don’t give up yet! We believe in you if no one else does! Count on that! Set your watch to it!

Speaking of which, keep an eye out for a new video next week…

The Forking part Dos.


Mexico City recording artist Natalia Lafourcade just release her latest album entitled Hu Hu Hu. Dear friend Cara made the masks and the dress Lafourcade wears on the cover. Cara worked really hard on these and I’m very proud of her!

The masks are also featured in the video Azul (dudes won’t let me embed). The video is kinda whack (why are these twentysomethings acting like seven-year-olds?), but I think the masks are cool, they show up at the end. Congrats Cara!

Yo DJ.


Sometimes you’re jsut sitting at your desk thinking, “WTF am I gonna blog about today? What’s interesting about reading a bunch of submissions? Aquiring content for the new website launch?” And then this little gem just falls right into your lap.

The triumphant return of DJ Dream Titty is happening tomorrow night at the Cornell Museum of Art as part of their current weekly series Warhol Wednesdays. Come out and look at some Warhol photos, bring some cash for the bar and get lost in the mammary jams the DJ will be spinning.

Young Brother from Northern Lights on Vimeo.

Here’s a jam called “The Mayor” from the Young Bro show that took place not one week ago. I gotta remember to wear some some contrasting colors next time. I look like a disembodied head and a pair of arms jamming on the bass. Thanks Chase for filming and posting.
