VIDEO PREMIERE: Coffee + Cigarettes

Hello to all you lovely people visiting this corner of my virtual universe! Thank you for coming back once more. Today’s post is a bit different from the rest as it is my first video post. Directing and styling films (in addition to writing them, of course) has always been a dream of mine, and I’m proud to present the first of many to come. For this short accompaniment to my poem, “Coffee + Cigarettes” I combined forces once more with the rest of the expanding Street Creatives team. Check out their site and drop a line if you’re interested in contributing. Otherwise, witness the beginning of a new chapter below and, as always, let me know what your thoughts (+ or – ) are.

New Release: “Ride or Die” by Das Leune

I spend a lot of time with this guy, so I’m a bit biased, however this new one, “Ride or Die,” by Das Leune is epic! Dude’s the only one I know who can start a song screaming punk rock style and end it rapping. Many artists like to hop on bandwagons with musical styles and fashion, or feel frustrated when halfway through their career they receive criticism for organically shifting their direction. Das Leune transcends both of the aforementioned categories by simply refusing to stay in one lane. As the opening lyrics state, “Fuck race. Fuck class. Fuck sex. Fuck genre…ahhhhhhh.” This guy’s got a lot of cool things coming up so stay tuned. In the meantime you can listen to his album Intro to Krul on iTunes or Spotify.

In My Shoes: Red Converse

If you’ve seen me at all, chances are you’ve seen a pair of Converse on my feet. They are hands down my favorite type of shoe to trek in—and I do quite a bit of trekking. I always wished I was a sneakerhead, but I’m too clumsy and adventurous to keep any shoe un-scuffed and unsoiled. Therein lies the beauty of Converse—the more grody they get, the better they look. I love that these shoes have been with me on three different continents and 10 different states and are still going strong! Below is a photo compilation of some Northern California adventuresjust one of their many.
