evoking the sight of soundddd


my mind ceases to rest unless its intoxicated with rad visuals and sound. joshua, one of my best friends, gave me this epic mix cd - sheer.fucking.magicccccc. his calling in life is to curate soundtracks for movies, commercials and brands. oh, and to strictly doodle sharpie art work onto things like cds.. i recommend you give this playlist a try.

    all things that compel are timeless in essence.. i found some old tear sheets from 2006 when my childhood friend woo and i had a line called surrender everything. the late nights and light speed exchange of creative energy whilst chain smoking and creating lead us to these 2 shots of the legendary dash snow (R.I.P.) and stella tennant for inspiration - still captivates me today.

    i take a cue from certain people i know - take 2: FEARNE COTTON

    I met Fearne through my best guy friends over 5 years ago and she is straight up rad. 

    if you're not familiar with her, its time to take note.. Fearne used to co-host Top of the Pops (our equivalent to MTV's TRL at its peak, but radder) and she is the first female staple on BBC Radio 1.

    my heart literally imploded upon seeing Fearne's one-on-one interview with JOHNNY-holy-jesus-DEPP and Tim Burton (view here). she happens to be an insanely talented artist - her paintings are absolutely ridiculous. additionally, she DJs, designs a badass collection for Very, has a book coming out mid-October with her BFF and is unintentionally stacking her cool factor chips here in the states.

    here's my q&a with this tv host-slash-DJ-slash-fashion designer-slash-artist-slash-girl you need to knowww..
