until someone dares us to rise up

Another good vision from Erika Ochoa. Blended with the sounds of Why?

Farrah Marie, what is this?
Have a very merry Christmas
And bury me deep in this mess
I'll be under where you walk

I'm just like everybody else is
and everybody else is a fine dust,
Dead in our houses,
until someone dares us to rise up

heart and soul

Please meet the creator of the video boniverful. For more Chrome Sparks music click here.

[P]ursuing that feeling of not really knowing what to do, and choosing what doesn’t quite seem like the logical next step, but feels right at a gut level, is how I’ve pieced together where I am today. It’s about that combination of anxiety about going into territory where I’m totally unfamiliar, and not knowing a big chunk of it […]

simple | beautiful | truth

"... something clear as the space which the clouds at last uncover - the little space of sky which sleeps beside the moon. Was it wisdom? Was it knowledge? (...) she imagined how in the chambers of the mind and heart of the woman (...) were stood, like the treasures in the tombs of kings, tablets bearing sacred inscriptions, which if one could spell them out would teach one everything, but they would never be offered openly, never made public." V. Woolf

Please meet the directors of the video Klaus Thymann & Mike Hughes. For more on the video production please click here.

Khalil Fong | bow tie

Khalil Fong. Just two words: Khalil Fong. Plus I want that bow tie.

"How you write Chinese lyrics to match an R&B melody—it's tricky, and not too many lyricists can do it. Sometimes I just have to do it myself. It's not about skill—it's more about the background of culture and the sound of rhyme." Khalil Fong via WSJ. More here.

chilling out at Imandra Lake

It was a short trip but I ended up at Imandra Lake. Surreal. Rainbow rain. Chill zone.

Finding myself in the world of Cass McCombs. Yet again. Bliss.
