Barcelona, un viaje por una boda, 2011

This is the first set of photos I’ve posted to The Black Laser since July of last year. Holy crap! Where has all the time gone?

To be honest, I’ve not felt very photographically motivated for some time and I even considered not bringing my camera with me on the trip to Spain. But, I am glad I did. Nothing like yanking you from your typical surroundings to get the old creative juices flowing. Also, jamon.

I’ve posted the whole gallery here instead of giving you a separate link because my other Flickr plug-in seems to be broken and I am not sure why. That’s pretty annoying, but this new way will work just the same.

Thoughts: don’t have too many. There are some nice photos here, and some really nice photos here. I am quite pleased with the edited set, down from nearly 600 photos. My photos look as much like my photos as they ever have and it’s clear that I am not seeing things all that differently than the last time I was motivated to take my camera out. I did try and focus on making sure I didn’t have too many redundant photos in the set, something that has been a weakness of mine in the past.

As a document of my trip through Spain goes, the photos are nice and that’s all I could hope for.

Cut Copy’s “Blink and You’ll Miss a Revolution”

Man, I fucking love Cut Copy. As I’ve said before here, I think they’re a band that has matured so nicely over the course of their career, a band from whom I hope we continue to receive great music that makes me want to dance whether at work developing my post-production tan, at home cleaning the filth from my apartment, or anywhere the hell else it’s good to listen to music.

The premise for the video goes like this: what IF instead of nuclear mutants living underground in Beneath the Planet of the Apes they were the apes themselves and instead of worshipping a nuclear bomb they worship the little bits of Cut Copy they needed to assemble the band for the performance of a single song? And, what if instead of destroying the world with nuclear fire, they burned the instruments in fits of simian rage after unleashing the power of Cut Copy’s music? That’s pretty much what we’ve got here. And it’s pretty damned cool.
