This week has been a struggle for me. I think I may need to lock myself in a room for a day and just make art that doesn’t need to communicate something other than the noise that’s in my head, and doesn’t need to satisfy anyone but me. H’anyways, in an effort to try to regain a sense of enjoyment of anything in time for me to appreciate good food and company tonight at Friendsgiving 2011, here are some things.
First, here’s a lovely little film made as a personal project by director Tom Jenkins, made with stop motion and Google Maps Street View. I think this is an interesting concept, and I got completely invested in this when I watched it the first time. Although, I also have a personal attachment to travel and road trips. So there’s that, too. Nevertheless, watch it, it’s beautiful.
Really digging this album, Exurbs, its awesomeness has been on repeat and is shepherding me through this week.
