dark circles

this is dark circles. it’s briana’s band, with help sometimes from her sister mikele. and kyle and anthony. they are pretty incredible with a hint of creepy. and are playing at johnny brenda’s in philly on the 15th…with sian alice group and the war on drugs. please go and see them before they become wildly famous.

martin’s school

some more touching stories from merrie, re: her travels in india…
“these are some pics we took last monday while visiting a school on ‘baas,’ a small village outside delhi.

the school was created 2 years ago in an area where the children have no access to a good education. its founder was the naval attache for the british high commission in india years ago, who ended up staying in india with his wife. together, they built an amazing home which they have opened as a guesthouse (bed and breakfast) for tourists.
it was fascinating to hear his stories of what he has been through with the indian government and the villagers while trying to help the children, but he perserveres, undaunted…amazing ‘chap.”
these pics are from the morning assembly they were having…all the children lined up singing songs and dancing with their music teacher (“mary had a little lamb,” etc.).

when i popped my head in to take a peek, all the children stood up, unprompted by their teacher, and greeted me with “good morning madame”. very sweet.
martin offers internships to english-speaking students to expose the children to other accents, etc. when we were there, a young girl from britian was just finishing up her month spent with the children. it was very emotional for her to leave, as the children performed their songs for her farewell…”

nice find. i always love found footage especially old super 8mm and 16mm film. texture holds up beautifully and has such a haunting effect.

This is fantastic! I just launched a site at the end of March called http://stylelikeu.com it features a deeper look into the thoughts and closets of inspiring people with amazing personal style. I interview people casually while videoing them in their closet with all of their tips and ideas. It has become a network of exceptional and authentic people. It is also turning out to be a platform to support whatever each person featured is doing creatively in their lives. Be sure to check out our link! x, www.stylelikeu.com
