I grew up in Massachusetts (southerners like to call us Yankees), where at the time there was maybe one country station on the radio that I admittedly never listened to. My husband is always amazed that I’m not even well versed in the major country artists of the last 20 years. Wille Nelson, sure, I’ve heard of him, but who is this Miranda Lambert that people seem to go gaga over?! You can say that I’m truly completely out of touch of the extremely popular subculture of country music, but that doesn’t mean if you call me to do a photo shoot down in Nashville that I won’t jump up in excitement to take it, especially when it’s an opportunity to work with the Grammy winning star, Lady Antebellum. A huge thank you to the photographer Rebecca Miller for asking me to be part of this project, and all the prop houses that were kind enough to let us rent on a Sunday (unheard of in Chicago… People are so nice in Nashville!!). I’m now looking into my first pair of cowboy boots.
I love everything about this. Greta Gerwig is my new favorite lady. Who wants to make a dance video with me? I’ll provide the forest.
Here’s Greta Gerwig dancing to Arcade Fire’s “Afterlife” at the Youtube Music Awards.
I can’t stop. Nope. I’m going to completely burn out on this record, happily. I have the feeling I’m going to HEYA it to death, (it has taken me over a decade to detox my musical ears from overindulging in Outkast’s album.) I really don’t see how I’m not going to scold this album into my body the same way, it’s that good. I may bring the single “Get Lucky” to the same level of “I just need a break,” just like the last thing you ate before you got food poisoning, but that’s OK. After all, it’s a DAFT PUNK summer.
I’m feeling a little obsessed at the moment. The new SWV (Sisters With Voices).
I need to watch more of them. It’s great that they’re so easy to make nowadays so that every band, no matter how big they are can put one together on their iPhone if they choose. Here’s the gamut.
