phil elverum creator of fine tunes under the moniker mount eerie, i think i love you...
one thing i admire beyond all other things in certain creative people is their ability to have complete focus on their style and an ability to always have such direction in their work that one thing seamlessly follows on from the next, each one more brilliant than the last.
what i enjoy about phil elverum's work from one album to the next is the world he creates through his simple, lo-fi sound that is both intimate and worldly, empty and full all at the same time. with whispered lyrics of spiritual entities followed by emotive snarls of guitar and a clatter of drums, it's all just perfect in my book really.

for the most part i have a self-imposed absolutely no spending budget to stick to. clothing is mainly second hand, haircuts I do myself, i use every last drop of ketchup in the bottle and am happy to bring furniture home off of the street. secretly, or rather not so now, i enjoy being a tight-arse. but sometimes you just need a little treat to brighten your day...lines & shapes
what have you done to treat yourself of late?
today, the all important portrait. i'm involved in a few projects at the moment which require me to submit a photograph of my actual face. this is scary as I am not a photogenic person in anyway; think mrs. potato head on the verge of tears and that is pretty much my face...there may be results to post later if i look nice/feel brave...

i found this great video to accompany one of my favorite tracks from balmorhea's last album all is wild, all is silent by jared hogan, it really complements the spareness of their sound - enjoy!

when the sun actually decides to come out i love to sit right in the corner by the window (which is also where the radiator is) and busy away. it's so nice at this miserable time of year to sit with the sun on my face whilst drinking a hot cup of tea...

a swarm of bees, a familiar smell that takes you back, bacteria under a microscope, a multitude of moments, a flock of birds seen from afar, a bustle of people never touching one another, an explosion that never stops exploding, particles of dust in the breeze, a collection of thoughts, light through the leaves in a tree on a beautiful day, a final breath...
it's all of these things at the same time.

the sun came out and i got carried away and took lots of snaps - studio space, doodle, pile, box of favorite paper and my tool box. so nice to see bright colors and not have the lights switched on!
