This past weekend we put on our annual music festival ORMF (Operation Restore Maximum Freedom). Such a fun day!
Doing this drive on Thursday!
6 more days until I can completely shut myself off from work, emails, my phone, etc, and surround myself with incredible music.
Sasquatch here I come!
Today I told listeners of my radio show on KDVS that if we raised $750 during an hour and a half I would get a tattoo of my favorite childhood stuffed animal I’ve had since the day I was born, a bunny, tattooed on me. We ended up raising $936!
I’ve been on the fence about getting a tattoo for a bit but I’m excited! It’ll combine all the memories from my childhood as well as the memories of my time at KDVS into one. I could write pages upon pages about the impact KDVS has had on my life, and all the opportunities it has opened for me. I can’t wait to carry a part of that love around with me. Long live freeform radio!
Also here’s a picture of another thing I love that I just found on my computer - DARWIN! My lovely roommate’s cat.
Hope all you folks are doing well out there!
Gonna hit y’all up with some photos I’ve taken recently. Some are taken on my Olympus OM-1 film camera, while others are from disposable cameras. All of them reflect people I love, places I love, and memories I love.
“Cross-legged in a wooden chair with a chomp taken out of its back, Banhart says he’s always wanted to be a “radio disk jockey— introduce a song, give a little bit of history, perhaps a personal anecdote, say what the music reminds me of and then ask my audience, ‘Does it remind you of the same thing? Why don’t you call in?’ That kind of communication. Sounds like paradise.’”
I hadn’t read much about Devendra Banhart besides the anecdote that floats around Tumblr explaining how he proposed to his now fiance the second he saw her. Pitchfork just ran an interview with him and I was surprised with how much I connected with it. Pretty excited for his new album and I can’t wait to see him at Sasquatch!
Scope the rest of the interview here if you’re interested.

Great weekend // great friends
CocoRosie - Tearz for Animalz
I’ve decided to create another tumblr that I will be using for more personal stuff. This will include random thoughts, songs i’m currently loving, sketches, photos i’ve been taking, maybe some creative writing pieces, journal entries, and what i’ve been thinking overall.
Trying to use the free time I have this summer to be more creative. It’s going to be a bit more personal so just ask if you’d like to have the link!
