I love this song.
It makes me dance like I'm straight out of 1967,
but minus the go-go boots.
Out and About - Boyce & Hart
Sleigh Bells sing, are you listening?
This song has been on steady
rotation for the last couple months.
They released the official video today.

It makes me sad to think that analog photography is expected to go the way of the Dodo.
Admittedly, I now use my DSLR more than any of my film cameras, I have a collection of
35mm to 4x5 cameras, but my photography foundation was built on analog photography
and darkroom techniques. Something that is lacking with many "photographers" out there
and is evident among many of them. Analog does a better job of teaching a deeper
understanding of light in the art of the medium. I think if Polaroid can make a comeback
and adapt to digital culture, darkrooms can survive.
Here's hoping at least.
I'm looking forward to this documentary on artist Ai Weiwei. I saw his work exhibited while
I was in Beijing in 2009 and thought it was quite striking and bold for a communist country
that so obviously suppresses individuality and punishes "radical" behaviour. I think overall,
I was impressed with the art that I saw while I was there. There are some really exciting
things happening in the Chinese art community and I look forward to seeing Chinese artists
gain more notoriety.
The link below is a DesignBoom article about the demolition of Ai Weiwei's Shanghai studio.
It seems suspicious to me, especially because of the publicity around his new documentary..
