Portrait #21 is andrew

andrew is the editor in chief of one of chicago’s great blogs, Gapers Block. i met andrew a couple of years ago at a Gaper’s anniversary party. my wife had befriended him via her path as a PR superhero. andrew has one of those memorable faces (which may be directly linked to his sideburns) and when i decided to branch out of my inner circle for this 50 Portraits Project, his name was near the top of the list. i met with andrew, his wife, and a few of their friends for a beer and some portraits (i am lying about the beer because it’s hard for me to say cider in public). please check out GB as it collects the finest that chicago has to offer in the arts, social stratospheres, food, politics, and puts it out there in blog form for all to see. check it out for sure. thanks to andrew and cinnamon for letting me hang for a bit. i would love to see the photos (that cinnamon took) of me taking andrew’s photo. that would be a fantastic attachment to this post.

the music:
besides the aptly chosen name for this band, there are many many many things i love about this multi-pieced group from scotland. fortunately almost all of my interest stems from their lead singer tracianne. my god. for a long time now, i have had an imaginary friendship with her. we run in the fields of grass, we hold hands, we toe the sand on the beach together, we take funny polaroids of each other outside of the Louvre, we ride a bicycle built for two together, and we go skinny dipping in the pond without looking at each other (ok so maybe i look but i know she doesn’t). it’s fantastic. their music is so bubbly, so happy, and so much more than the bubblegum pop that it poses as. this band is now five records into a great career and your should buy them all. but make sure to bring your toothbrush. this band is indeed, too sweet for most. i almost fainted when my friend ivan introduced me to tracianne back in 2004. true story.
