I WANT TO WRITE SONGS ABOUT THE PEOPLE I'VE LOVED THAT I'VE NEVER MET





(Matt & Kim shoot another video, more equipment is destroyed and mess is made)

The lovely Matt & Kim have made another video, and I was lucky enough to be there for it. Combine one pristine white set, Matt & Kim with white instruments, and an arsenal of delicious and messy treats just waiting for their cues to fly. . . and you have F.U.N. It was modeled on an accidental food fight that broke out during one of their shows in Houston. There are some surprises in the video that I have been forbidden from sharing/spoiling, so you'll just have to wait till it comes out to get to the good parts. But damn I still crack up thinking about some of them. Good times.

And speaking of music videos by people that I'm a fan of, my friend Cat directed this awesome video for CSS.

  3. I assume you know Sto, who was at Matt and Kim's video shoot as well as you [I guess I'm not supposed to say anymore]. It sounds like it was a blast to shoot (one take!) and I can't wait to see it.

    I'm glad your blog is around, because I've missed every event you've been to in the last month! Bike Kills, all the shows from our friends, Anti-CMJ, LS5 at MOMA, etc.

    One last thing: give Spankrock another chance. They're usually pretty great live.
