the photography:
so the weather in chicago has yet to let up. crappy rain and 60 degree fog soaked mornings are what i’m dealing with. if i wanted to live in the PNW, i would have moved there years ago. yuck. the photos today are from the middle of dearborn street, in the offic parking garage, and from this fantastic recording studio in an old loft off the river in Milwaukee. the photo looking north up dearborn street is pretty self-explanatory as is the parking garage image. the recording studio loft was the setting for my recent shoot with All Tiny Creatures. these kids are fantastic. check them out. the shots were taken with my 15mm fisheye. a cheeky look but i totally dig it. the studio reminded me of my old art space in cicero. i shed a tear. BTW… i love the stigmata photo with a polaroid. might go down in history as one of my favorite “found” pieces of art. i love walking around old buildings and looking rooms.

the music:
do any of you remember when INXS hit the states over the head in 1986? i do. my brother was just getting into music (his musical tastes coincided with his love for skateboarding and included such great underground and new wave heroes as The Dead Milkmen, INXS, OMD, and the Thompson Twins) and my parents always let us play pop radio on our Chevrolet Celebrity station wagon. so when INXS took the US by storm i was there. and i was impressionable. these records stick with me wherever i go and let’s be completely honest, Don’t Change is one of the greatest songs ever written. i don’t care what kind of music you like.
