    What To Watch: Stranger Things

    [embedyt] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPDZkbq0Zp8[/embedyt] By: Anthony Flores   When Stranger Things was first released, I was waiting impatiently like all of the other die-hard Winona Ryder fans in the world. Never being let down by any of her work meant that this show was going to be good. The anticipation only grew greater as I kept checking my iPhone to see if it was 12:00 AM on July 15th. Sitting alone in the darkness of my room was the only way to start this series and I planned on using an entire day to binge watch every bit of it. I had refused to watch the numerous amount of trailers that had been posted online…

    pellicola + dettagliologia delle imperfezioni / detailology

    Photographer: LiLLy Vigna ( Instagram )  LiLLy Vigna’s series for “pellicola + dettagliologia delle imperfezioni / detailology” is a photography project with the goal of editing pictures using the latest digital tools while simultaneously trying to make you recall the atmosphere of 60’s and 70’s films, when globalization was still far and our current technology, such as digital cameras and Instagram, were an utopia. Some of her subjects include insects, leaves and flowers, which remind the viewer of wild environments, attempting to contrast the current world and all its degenerations. In this project, details emphasize the message rather than the image itself, the imperfection as opposed to perfection, cutting off…

    The Reputations and the Necessity of Pop Music in the Wake of Sadness

    The Reputations and the Necessity of Pop Music in the Wake of Sadness By Jay Armstrong   I can’t speak for certain about the rest of the country but Austin specifically has an eye-roll approach to all things which might possibly fall in the realm of being labeled “pop.” What a disgusting reaction to see at the simple mention of a genre with one of the richest and most distinguished lineages in all of music. Sure, pop music jumped shark towards the end of the eighties and had lost all sense of soul by the turn of the century but so did every other aspect of music. Seriously, if The…

    Half Waif Takeover!

      It seems that everything Half Waif encompasses, they do so wholeheartedly and with utmost intimacy. Brooklyn-based project Half Waif, the musical vision of Nandi Rose Plunkett, released her debut LP KOTEKAN in 2014, followed by her sophomore release Probable Depths this past May via DZ Tapes. Plunkett’s heritage stems from a conglomeration of Indian/Irish/Swiss/American background, thus drawing inspiration for the choice of her band’s name – “it was that fractured feeling of belonging to everywhere and nowhere all at once”. While recording Probable Depths, Plunkett and her producer Zubin Hensler visited her childhood house in Williamstown, MA, to sample the creaks and clanks inherent within the rooms and the…
