Thank You Ophelia!

A couple packages showed up at my door step the other day and I was delighted to see that they were both from Ophelia Chong. I was pretty excited! I tore open carefully unsealed the envelope, and inside was this little box with a familiar shape on it.

Along with one of her trademark collage pieces she also included some very cool prints. Thank you very much Ophelia! I dedicate this song to you – Tommy Evans – Ophelia:

I doubt there are many people reading this that have even heard of Tommy Evans, let alone this song – but if you have, then you better swing by my house so we can high five each other.

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

skrillex-redlips-gta04skrillex-redlips-gta02 skrillex-redlips-gta03

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.
