Cherry Blossom Girl

On Sunday I decided to ignore my wretched spring allergies and go to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for the last day of the Cherry Blossom Festival. It was packed, and lots of people dressed up for the occassion. It was like being in Japan for the day…

Speaking of Cherry Blossom Girls, has any one seen The Cherry Blossom Girl pour Etam? I wish they shipped to the US!

Stay tuned, there should be a big spike in posting now that it’s street style season (more specifically, not winter). I’m looking forward to being outside with my camera much, much more.

The Shows

SXSW is a veritable smorgasbord of music- there are shows at auditoriums, in bars, back yards, street corners, churches, alley ways, hotel rooms…pretty much anywhere you can think of at every second of the day. I landed on Wednesday evening and headed straight out to Duran Duran (girls on film! the chauffeur! hungry like a wolf!), but the surprise highlight of the week may have been Austra who opened for the Kills at the Domino Records showcase. These girls have moves, and I’m quite sure everyone (and I do mean everyone) fell in love that night. Definitely keep an eye our for these Toronto up and comers and take a listen to their album.

Below are some of my personal highlights:

Simon Le Bon!

My only regret is not getting to see more of Austin on this whirlwind trip. I’ll definitely be heading back soon for a proper tour…and perhaps some serious vintage shopping. Stay tuned for SXSW Street Style!

CHRISTEENE (NSFW)

At Siege’s Mardi Gras birthday party a couple weekends ago I met a sweet lovely boy named Paul from Austin, Texas. Paul was in town for a bunch of Christeene shows, his performance moniker. I heard Christeene was a crazy ass bitch, but after meeting him out of character I was convinced it couldn’t be too raunchy.

I was wrong.

Christeene being carried out by his dancers

I liked it so nice, I saw Christeene twice.

Ass Up

Ass Down

Both shows were with Big Freedia, who I think actually showed less ass than Christeene (no easy feat). As she would say; WURK DAT STANKHOLE GIRRRLLL. You killed it! Make sure to come back to see us in NYC real soon.

Want some more (you dirty whore)? Check out the video below:

Stay tuned for more images from SXSW, coming soon!

Geisha Gals

Came across an amazing flickr stream featuring scans from someone’s personal collection of antique Japanese photos. Included are some of my favorites geishas, all hand painted photos from the early 1900’s.

If you’re into Japanese history or hilarious insane old men, you should check out this guy’s flickr profile: http://www.flickr.com/people/24443965@N08/

Truly amazing.

Many of these he found while working in Japan during WWII, and it’s clear the guy knows his stuff (and probably hasn’t been the same since the war). In case you aren’t convinced to check out his bio, read this excerpt ( in reference to his captions) and then see how you feel.

ALSO BE FOREWARNED THAT…..

(1) FOR HALF OF THE PHOTOS I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT,

AND….

(2) FOR THE OTHER HALF OF THE PHOTOS I MAKE A FOOL OUT OF MYSELF TRYING TO EXPLAIN THINGS THAT I DON’T HAVE THE SLIGHTEST CLUE ABOUT….KILLING TIME WITH SOME RIDICULOUS FICTION THAT SOME OF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAR AND FEATHER ME FOR.

THIS SITUATION BENEFITS YOU, THE VIEWER BY ALLOWING YOU TO CLAIM THAT ANYTHING YOU DISAGREE WITH BELONGS TO THE SECOND CATEGORY — THUS GIVING YOU GOOD REASON TO ADD YOUR OWN ESTEEMED COMMENTS AND CORRECTIONS UNDER THE PHOTO.

HOWEVER…. ANY DUMB COMMENTS THAT MATCH OR EXCEED MY OWN IGNORANCE ARE SUBJECT TO GETTING MOCKED, SLAPPED, OR SPOOFED IN ONE OF MY CRIMINALLY VERBOSE COMEBACKS. IF MY RETORTS TO YOUR BLITHERING NONSENSE OFFEND YOU, YOU MAY CHALLENGE ME TO A DUEL.

IN SUCH A CASE, I WILL (1) IMMEDIATELY ACCEPT YOUR CHALLENGE, AND (2) AT THE TIME AND PLACE APPOINTED, I WILL DEFINITELY NOT SHOW UP !!!

By the way, I just burned Dale Carnegie’s book “How to Win Friends & Influence People“, after driving a railroad spike through it, and dousing it with gasoline.

 

Either way, this dude is the man. Enjoy!

Georgia Weekender

Went down to Athens Friday night for a show organized by Henry of Chunklet Magazine featuring Man…or Astro-Man? at the 40 Watt club. Soundscreen Design did a limited edition 7″ record for the event to celebrate Touchable Sound, our new book on rare, DIY and underground 7″ design. You can check out images of the packaging (which included an old computer circuit board) on Chunket’s site, linked above.

Man...or Astro-Man!?!

Saturday night was another amazing time with the Of Montreal gang at Variety in ATL.

Onesies. Lots and lots of onesies.

Sunday Soundcheck

Of Montreal has never disappointed me with their live shows. Such a talented group of musicians and always a great performance…not to mention an all around stellar group of people.

Thanks to everyone for the good times!
