This has got to be the coolest short film I've ever seen and it just so happens to include the three loves of my life: photography, music, and Rome. Check this out, it's called "Notte Sento" by Urban Team and it was shot with 4,500+ still frames on a Canon 30D. Insane.
I think I've recited those lyrics just about every Sunday for the last 8 years-- yes, that would make me a Plain White T's fan long before ABC Family ever found them, and certainly way before Delilah ever came into fiction. I was obsessed with them in high school, and more so with the fact that no one knew who they were. It came as a huge surprise hearing them on the radio for the first time only a few years ago.
Anyways, the reason for this post is that finding music videos on TV is almost impossible-- unless you happen to be watching VH1 at like 5 AM on a Sunday, like Today. "Hey There Delilah" by the T's just so happens to be one of my all-time favorite videos. I really enjoy the artistic direction of it. Certainly something different. Check it out.
...but it's going to be my year!(lyrics from "Weightless" by All Time Low)
My friend Cisco who used to play with Vanilla Sky sent me the link to the video from which today's title was selected. I guess being in a band, he's probably shared in similar thoughts. As a concert photographer, ergo a regular concert attendee, I always wondered what the bands and people around me were thinking. I think this video confirms my suspicions.
Anyways, I'll actually be photographing All Time Low tonight at Towson University. 6 PM, $24. If you're in the area, check em out with We The Kings, Cartel, and Days Difference
my chucks with ARTTMSo... I am by no means "famous," but this was kind of cool. Worn Free clothing was mentioned on Barricade Buzz a few months back, and they offered to send me one of their shirts. I wasn't sure what to expect, but they hooked me up with a Debbie Harry "PUNK" t-shirt... and I'm not going to lie, I love it. I ended up wearing it to my interview with A Rocket To The Moon at the 9:30 Club, and snapped a photo of the band. The folks at Worn Free happened to notice it, and added it to their blog. I'm a rockstar now (not by any means). Check it out: Worn Free blog. (warning: I am NOT a model.)
I had the pleasure of catching Seattle rockers, The Classic Crime, at a small bar called Cafe Nine in New Haven, Connecticut over the weekend. If you don't know these guys, you really should. Check out their MySpace.
songs to note: "Who Needs Air," "Salt In the Snow"
