    i’m not sure what you’re talking about but ok

    Oh wow. I never thought I would deal with that U.C. Jazz here. Oh well.

    But back to on topic. Pretty good for the most part. For some reason I love the wind blowing on the mic. It seems that she hasn’t been to Kentucky either. Miss-pronouncing Louisville, Drinking Rye whiskey, Cowboys, and deserts. All not Kentucky. Good song though. Very well done.

    Oh, and the last look that she gives the camera, right before it cuts to credits is absolutely gorgeous. The entire time I was stuck wondering when she would recognize the camera.

    An echo of Vincent Moon, but very well done to the point that it has its own spirit.

    I kid y’all. I don’t even watch sports. (Jeff, its about Louisville cardinals and Kentucky wildcat rivalry)

    William, i totally agree, she hasn’t been to Kentucky.

    I’m with William, too. Song itself is lovely, though.

    FURCHESSSSSSSS! She actually is from the south. I thought North Carolina, but it could be Kentucky. Either way I know she didn’t grow up in the city.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
