SAFE: A Documentary

This is a mini-documentary I’ve been working on in my hard to come by spare time in the last few months. It highlights the work of local concert promoters (and my friends) Safe Music. They bring underground dance acts to Miami and try to focus their bookings on “breaking” new artists that rarely make it to the states.

The original plan for this video was to film a promotional style piece with pretty images of an awesome party. The night before the shoot, I happened to catch the absolutely incredible LCD Soundsystem documentary ‘Shut Up and Play the Hits.’ Within the first 20 minutes I knew that I wanted to try my hand at telling a real story about music.

This is my first non-commercial documentary style piece. The absolute madness of the format is enthralling and I definitely want to try my hand at a longer piece next.

Thanks for reading and thanks for watching if you do!

Things that suck about DrawSomething

  • April,3rd,2012 at 9:58 AM

The obsession with DrawSomething, the latest craze in social bathroom time gaming, tends to begin rather innocently. The words you’re given to play are new, fresh and challenging. You start off playing during bathroom breaks, or waiting in line. It’s easy. It’s fun.

My personal journey with DrawSomething began as an interesting way to socialize with my friends that enriched our friendships.

But things grow dark quickly in the world of DrawSomething….

Bitches Love Pinterest

The market for distracting girls on the Internet is tiny. You’ve got social bookmarking sites pining for other types of attention spans. Tumblr hosts a growing teen population and Reddit‘s got web-savvy males wrapped around their finger. Pinterest offers a diversion that caters directly to the emotional needs of women. Right now, they have an estimated 80% female user base. They use it, they find it fun, and they can’t stop talking about it.

ellynet:

My best picks for parties, events, and art fairs for Art Basel Miami Beach.
I chose most of these events based on a set of prioritized criteria:

  • Will I be able to indulge in copious amounts of free liquor?
  • Will I be able to get my dance on?
  • What invite-only events can I shamelessly try to…

Lonely Meme Halloween

This Halloween, I decided to be an Internet meme. More specifically, I chose to be Hipster Ariel. As was made apparent by my night of confused and/or disregarded looks, this was a bad idea.

For those who are not familiar…

According to KnowYourMeme, Hipster Ariel (a.k.a Hipster Mermaid) is…

The Planking Plague Strikes the Agency World
Got my 15 minutes of fame today. A photo of me planking my boss’ office was posted to our company’s Facebook page and somehow made its way onto Media Bistro. Now it’s time to fix my reputation for doing something “so 2 months ago”.

Posted my first nail art tutorial! This look is a little late for July 4th, but it’ll work for any other patriotic holiday.

Comment! Subscribe! Rate! Enjoy!

My friend Gaby has begun documenting her nail art, which I’m pretty excited about. I’m [not-so] secretly hoping she’ll do her Pokemon one. Check her out!

I’m really digging the new Washed Out album, particularly this song (Eyes Be Closed).

…but I think I only like it because of my teenage infatuation with Moby - Porcelain. I know it’s chillwave and all but this is THE SAME SONG.

The City of Montreal has approved a $108 M bailout for their bike-sharing program, Bixi, last Tuesday.

City council voted 35-25 Tuesday afternoon in favour of the package, initially proposed by mayor Gérald Tremblay.
The package includes $37-million to cover Bixi’s deficit, and another  $71-million in loan guarantees to export and develop the system abroad.
The head of the the non-profit rental-service – Roger Plamondon – has  insisted the company is not under threat, despite having liquidity  problems.

The Bixi system was set up in Montreal, 2009. Personally, I think it’s great. There are a high number of easily accessible stations, the bikes are easy to ride (although forever stuck in that slow gear), and the price is reasonable ($5 for an unlimited day pass). I use it whenever my bike is broken or I need to go somewhere that I don’t want to ride back from.
The lack of transparency on Bixi’s financial health is disappointing. Jacques Bergeron’s office was supposed to audit the bike system, and submit a summary of that review in his annual report. However, his 2010 report, tabled Monday, does not include any Bixi audit and Bergeron says it won’t be ready until at least June.

Wow, $108M? Having Bixi stations on every corner of Montreal, 24/7 customer service, tracking chips, first 30 min free, etc., etc&#8230; would be interesting to see the details of the audit.

Summer lesson for y&#8217;all: Clean out your cooler within one day of using it.
Over two months ago we grilled some hot dogs and had a few beers with friends by the pool. We had tons of leftover food and drink.
You know the feeling you get after it&#8217;s &#8220;too late&#8221; to deal with something? You just let it go, and let it go&#8230; avoiding it as each day it gets worse and worse and you&#8217;ve realized there is no longer an easy way to &#8220;fix&#8221; it?
This is what happened. My cooler full of hot dogs and beer slowly got grosser and grosser. To the point where there was no easy way to clean it out. Especially when you live in a condominium with no backyard or hose.
Last resort? Tape it up so whatever strange growth inside could not creep out in the middle of the night and wreak havoc on this earth. Then dump it.

I&#8217;m just worried that someone will come to the dumpster in my building and say, &#8220;WOW, someone just dumped a perfectly good cooler. And it has WHEELS! And CUP HOLDERS! I&#8217;m taking this little treasure home!&#8221;
And then the end of the world will come.
I wipe my hands clean of this!

Over two months ago we grilled some hot dogs and had a few beers with friends by the pool. We had tons of leftover food and drink.

You know the feeling you get after it’s “too late” to deal with something? You just let it go, and let it go… avoiding it as each day it gets worse and worse and you’ve realized there is no longer an easy way to “fix” it?
