Toro Y Moi~ Tonight at Larimer Lounge

Toro Y Moi will be here tonight at the Larimer Lounge - Tickets are $13 presale and $15 at the door. Believe me you do NOT want to miss Mr. Chazwick Bundick...his sound is unheard of. A bit funky and electro, I guess they call it chillwave these days.

Even when poetry has a meaning, as it usually has, it may be inadvisable to draw it out... Perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure. ~ A.E. Housman

Julian Casablancas~ Quick Run Down

Okay so as far back as like the late 90's I have had this major crush on Julian Casablancas, the painfully handsome front man for one of the best bands ever...THE STROKES, duh! I rarely have crushes, but this man just melts my heart. So just a quick run down on why I find him so fascinating (not because he is effing famous either, met a lot of famous twerps...not so impressed accept with E.Badu, but she is a Queen).

1. He is humble...
In a 2003 interview he tells this story, the jukebox fills the room with the strains of Sam Cooke's soul-stirring A Change Is Gonna Come, and the girls gather round. All time stops for Casablancas. "When I hear A Change Is Gonna Come, it frustrates me," he says. Why? "No matter how hard I try, I can never be that good," he answers.

2. He lives in the moment...(one of my favorite ways to live hah) and can hold his own.
The lead singer of the Strokes, New York's finest purveyors of coolly detached retro-rock boogie, is blessed with the ability to talk shit. He can hold forth all night, run around in verbal circles for 15 minutes, lose his place and then start all over again. He doesn't seem to have anywhere to be. He is in the moment. He doesn't even own a cell phone, a computer or a watch. But his intentions are the noblest.

3. He is super talented...
His voice is totally different, it sounds as if he is singing with a tear in it and it works for him.

4. He believes in God, in a higer power (that is to be admired)

So now you should get it, if you don't I'm sorry you should just find out for yourself.

The seed cannot sprout upwards without simultaneously sending roots into the ground,

The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree...The seed will develop these possibilities,
however; only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.

Grain must return to earth, die, and decompose for new growth to begin.
~Anient Egyptial Proverb

Billy totally had all the chicks...duh!

Thought Provoking Thursday~

What's the key to getting along with others? It's putting yourself in their place, instead of putting them in their place. The way you treat others determines how others will treat you. If you don't like what you're reaping today, change what you're sowing.



Typography ~ RIPO

RIPO  originated as a graff writer from NYC, he is now focused on large typography pieces, inspired by a variety of local signs and insignia. His work is impeccable, one of my favorite typography artists for sure.  Alarm Press did a great interview with RIPO, take some time and read it today.

Some words from Alarm Press: The work of multimedia street and studio artist RIPO thrives on contexts. With legal and illegal pieces popping up in 36 countries, Ripo’s boldly crafted images and carefully hand-lettered slogans may appear anywhere from a European gallery to the side of an abandoned building in Central America. Wherever they appear, they comment on place: the place of the artist in a community as well as the place of the viewer in a public space. Even his assumed name, Ripo, is anonymous, malleable, and open to interpretation.
