A little home I lived in for a month in Montreal.
When I heard that The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of José González, a documentary following the life of the musician, was being featured at my local film festival last year, I knew I had to see it. Though his music is great, I was far more excited to hear what he had to say about it.
I was interested in his exposition on the thematic styling behind his second album, “In Our Nature,” as well as his tangents on religion and evolution. Still, it was his animation, “Cycling Trivialities,” that stuck with me. Because I only got the chance to see it once and haven’t found it since, here is my version of it.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, I highly recommend it.
If you haven’t noticed, there is a recent photo-video hybrid trend going around the internet (tumblr, mostly) called cinemagraphs. The other day my friend Clara Pathe came over and we spent a couple hours making some.
I recently did a shoot for Rookie magazine inspired by 1950s girl gangs. The photographs will be up later this month, but for now I leave you with a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot. Enjoy!

HAROLD & MAUDE is a quirky, dark comedy film that came out in 1971. Perfect watch for a cold and dark November evening.
I saw it a week ago, and the theme song is still sweetly haunting me.
