Seeing the Goth King At SXSW

Seeing the Goth King At SXSW

Everyone has a past, mine happens to be a little goth. Yet back in the late 80s when I listened to a lot of goth music, I didn’t know who had made a lot of the music I listened to. Between homemade cassettes that were long lost copies of copies of copies, the sound quality […]

CATALIN by CHARLES LONG at the Contemporary Austin

Today I managed to get to the Charles Long exhibit at the Jones Center at 7th and Congress to see the CATALIN exhibit. I even managed to hit free day! Since I had overbooked myself, I didn’t have an change to linger, but I did get to lay eyes on the exhibit. Worth catching before […]

A Crybaby Went To Arcade Fire: A Review From The Cheap Seats

I wasn’t expecting it, but as a result of winning tickets on the Internet (as a result of tweeting a picture of my fanciest threads) I ended up at the Arcade Fire show at the Austin 360 Amphitheater last night. Being that I got free tickets that fell out of heaven, I feel like I […]

When the Hospital Ships Docked at SXSW

When the Hospital Ships Docked at SXSW

During the South By Southwest Music Festival, I saw the chill and low key Lawrence, Kansas band Hospital Ships at a day party/ benefit show, which I wrote about in my column for the Austin-American Statesman. While I was there, I took a zillion pictures of their show, which you can see below.

I Saw the Band “Trumpeter Swan” at their SXSW Showcase!

This year at SXSW, I saw my pal Drew Patrizi’s New York based band Trumpter Swan play at the Soho Lounge for their South by Southwest showcase, which I wrote about in my SXSW column for the Austin American-Statesman. Later I found this really trippy video for the jangle pop band, which you should watch. […]

Aaron Allston’s “Celebration of Life” Is Today

That’s Aaron Allston on the left, directing a scene in “Deadbacks.” Several years ago, I met bestselling science-fiction writer Aaron Allston just before shooting started on his indie zombie movie, “Deadbacks.” I helped out a little on the film and many of my friends and my husband helped out a lot more, building sets and […]

From iPhoto to Lightroom

From iPhoto to Lightroom

Over the last few weeks week I’ve been transitioning from iPhoto to Lightroom. The reason I did this was because using iPhoto on my machine with my massive photo library had become incredibly slow and frustrating. Just after Fun Fun Fun Fest, I had edited the photos from the festival with iPhoto, and had uploaded […]

A Silly Pose From Peelander Yellow and Friends

A Silly Pose From Peelander Yellow and Friends

While Peelander Yellow (of the band Peelander Z) doesn’t live in Austin, he’s often here. A couple of years ago at SXSW, he fixed my broken camera with duct tape. He has also done a lot of artwork for the Eastside Kings food trailers/resturants. I grabbed this picture of Peelander Yellow and friends after the […]

Rachael Ray Planting A Smooch on CeeLo Green at Feedback 2014

Since the South By Southwest festival ended, I’ve written a column for the Austin American-Statesman about it, and I’ve been going through the thousands of pictures that I took during the festival. So far I think this picture of television chef Rachael Ray planting a smooch on Ceelo Green (the headliner at her day party) […]
