hands down.  ry x is the playlist that is just simply sexy as hell.

afternoons, evenings, candles, a shower, massage, nap, kissing, spooning.

with someone or just to let your mind wander.

stay healthy.

The Trophy Club presents ‘Summer Champ’ from The Sleepers on Vimeo.

1,300 miles of
climbing mountains,
swimming in rivers,
talking to strangers,
keeping journals,
camping in forests,
and getting lost;
this is Summer Champ.

Soundtrack by: Secret Path

Casey did the keynote at BufferFestival in Toronto on the weekend so I picked up some tickets to see the short films after Casey’s talk.

( I loved Melanie Murphy’s short film about abortion and the struggle women in Ireland face  BTW at Buffer Festival)

The kids went downtown Toronto since we were going to hit the all night art fest.  I’m a Casey fan on how he documents things and his storytelling.  This past July… he did a keynote and I wanted to post it below if you ever wanted to listen to him a little more.

Casey Neistat is an American film director, producer, developer, and creator of popular YouTube videos. Neistat attained commercial success with the HBO series The Neistat Brothers and indie film Daddy Longlegs. With ten years of experience in creating TV commercials, Neistat took his story-telling ability and married it with his commercial experience to re-define branded content on the internet with companies such as Mercedes and Nike. Most recently, Neistat’s technology company, Beme, was acquired by CNN.

Two videos.  Above is the storytelling on how he jumps around to tell a story that is shot by just him.  How he moves the camera around to get a different POV and help with focus on different parts.  How he uses music and old footage of him.

Below:  Yes a quick trip but just how he films traveling which is tough and he tries to capture it a different way by counting down the hours.  His cuts and how he moves the camera around to capture from a different POV.

Ry X | Bad Love | Song Of The Quarter | 4Q

September 23rd, 2017

tumblr_or0xdqtZB21w4motno1_540

[Verse 1]
Tell me all your little thoughts
Tie you up, not enough
Give me that bad love, bad love
Show me you’re a criminal
Bite it up till it talks
Give me that bad love, bad love

[Verse 2]
We could be high on feeling requisite
Under the thoughts, give me your love, give me your bones
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Verse 3]
Tell me you’re another girl
Heavy lust, heavy touch
Give me that bad love, bad love
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Chorus 2]
I’ll be your warmth here
And how can I wait?
I’m holding your bag for you
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Outro]
How can I wait?
Holding your bag for you

Streetball + Hoops + Old Love = Needs Rekindling

September 21st, 2017

horrible summer with not getting out and being active.  with the summer coming to a close… i miss my passion.  i miss the courts.  the courts are calming and it’s my church.  nobody has any problems when they play.  they can’t see outside the lines.  only the things happening inside the lines matter.  you can’t hear the world.  you only hear the game.

fall is upon us.  the evening dew will kill the outdoor game at Simcoe.  the welly will have runs this fall and into the frost and into the snow we will go.

i want the love back.

i will get it.

rest in peace kirk.
