1. The only meeting of this year I’m looking forward to. (at The Stone Pony)

     
  2. The Work of Zina Nicole Lahr from Stormy Pyeatte on Vimeo.

    In August 2013 my friend Zina asked if I could shoot a video for her portfolio. She needed something that would showcase her work but also tell a little bit about her personality and her interests. We had two days to shoot and edit so we shot an interview and smashed something together to meet our deadline. On November 20, 2013 Zina passed away due to a hiking accident in Ouray, CO. After the funeral I revisited the footage and made this short as an attempt to capture her personality and creativity. I never planned to release it online but now I have a chance to share her and her creations with all of you! For all who are part of the Zina Lahr love bomb,

    The SS Morro Castle was a luxury ocean liner of the 1930s that was built for the Ward Line for runs between New York City and Havana, Cuba. The Morro Castle was named for the Morro Castle fortress that guards the entrance to Havana Bay. On the morning of 8 September 1934, en route from Havana to New York, the ship caught fire and burned, killing 137 passengers and crew members. The ship eventually beached herself near Asbury Park, New Jersey, and remained there for several months until she was towed off and scrapped.

  6. Why I’m Not a Fan of the South

    "Unfortunately, their last gig in Oklahoma — the first and only time they’ve played the Sooner State — didn’t fare so well; they ended up in a ‘cowboy bar’ and were quickly shown the door."

    Don’t put labels on Screaming Females — they just want to play the best rock ’n’ roll they can.
