I heart trashy club music

In Music on 10/12/2010 at 2:17 pm

I’m one of the biggest suckers for songs with a good beat, bad lyrics, and a talentless artist. One of my latest favorites is Evacuate the Dancefloor, who the hell Cascada is a mystery in itself (though she does look like Carrie Underwood’s long lost club loving twin).

Another one is G6, which is probably one of the more repetitive songs out there, but it’s got an addictive beat… and I can’t get it out of my head after listening to it.

My video teacher at Pratt showed us this film, they made it for about $25,000, it’s so awesome!

The aesthetics and music are what I find to be the most striking, it’s visually stunning.

Need to do more blogging…

Summer and school, as I predicted,  ended my habitual blogging, but I’d like to try and pick it up again, maybe start writing a little more personally about projects, things I’m doing at school, work that inspires me, and blah blah.

Currently I have a few projects I’m working on, I’m in the process of putting together a subway shoot, not sure what I am going to do for costumes yet, because Bennington had a sick costume dept., but New York is most definitely filled w/ some great thrift stores that I’ll just have to pour through one day. I just recently met w/ my Art History professor and discussed one of my ideas for a photo shoot where I’d be referencing iconic sculptors and paintings then modernize them to depict America’s current social infrastructure. I’m going to include pieces like Lady Justice, the Abraham Lincoln Memorial statue, American Gothic, and etc. I’m a little pissed at Pratt because I can’t check out lights, medium format cameras, or use the lighting studio because I’m in a ‘foundations,’ course… so I’ll have to try and figure out a way around the system.
