Party off the pounds

I’m not sure what gave me the epiphany (or if you can call it one), but I’ve decided that indie electronic music and old Richard Simmons videos are made for each other. Do you agree?

Junior Boys – Itchy Fingers

Neon Indian – C’est La Vie (say the casualties!)

Our June mixtape

Some mixtapes are tough to get through because there’s one song you keep playing over and over. You could care less what else is on it because damn, that track is catchy. To avoid that, I put the song that pulled me back into my emo listening days at the end. Kick back and click below to enjoy some new jams from Minden, Classixx, Sonny & The Sunsets and more.

Andrew W.K. Party Tips Could Save Your Life

Heartbreaking events put a major buzzkill on this past week. They are not the first, nor the last, but what I do know is we have to continue to spread love and positivity, not fear and hate. If you won’t heed my advice, take a look at Andrew W.K.’s party tips on Twitter. They are lovely injections of optimism that will make you smile. And for those with an attention span, make sure to read his advice column in the Village Voice. It’s beautiful.

I Want to Believe

Last night I caught the documentary The Curse of the Man Who Sees UFOs as part of SF DocFest and highly recommend it for anyone that’s into total characters or UFOs. It follows a man who has been filming UFOs in Monterey for years and his unwavering belief in the phenomenon, but also profiles his challenges with family and his own filmmaking. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and just maybe keep your eyes on the sky more often.
