I hope you had a great weekend! I had a restful one, the first in over a month, so it was a great relief. As my interest in street photography develops, I’ve been thinking a lot about purchasing the vaunted FujiFilm 100T, a camera a lot of street photographers have been talking about. Being ever-thrifty, I realized I should do a bit of research on YouTube and found the following two camera reviews. They’re good and, incredibly, the first review even takes place during a huge protest?!?!
I wasn’t sure what to expect from OK GO when I headed over to Terminal 5 this past Saturday night. But I ended up having a blast because of the band’s incredible use of audio/visual tech – it was totally engaging! Their use of audience participation and humor (they held three funny Q&A sessions with the crowd!) really held my attention. No wonder they’ve been able to build their audience ever since their hit treadmill video back in, like, 2006?
Thanks to encouragement from my girlfriend this past week, I was inspired and started thinking about directing a new youtube comedy web series! It’s still nascent (I dig that word) but the idea really started gaining velocity!
I just found out that M83, Com Truise, College and the soundtrack to 2011’s movie Drive, isn’t the only dreamy retro 80s sythpop around! There’s a whole new genre out that’s sprung up! This relatively new genre of music is called, as far as I can tell, “80s New Wave Revival” or “80s SynthPop” or “80s Revival”. I just made the realization about this musical movement whilst exploring youtube (or course!) and ended up discovering NewRetroWave. It’s a youtube channel that hosts all these “Retro New Wave” bands.
