ViMEO

Vimeo, I appreciate that you are a glossy, high quality website. You look lovely and professional with your lack of quickly accessible interactions from the audience (scrolling down for comments is so last season), and you have some wonderful features such as Vimeo Staff’s Pick. Generally, the content does appear to be higher quality than YouTube.

That said, your lack of a strong community makes it hard to grow with others.

Good news everybody, I’m going on tour!

I’m sure you know by now how much I adore A Great Big World and Lindsey Stirling, and how last year I was pleasantly surprised to hear Mike Tompkins at DigiFest New York, well now I get to go around Europe with them and see them play and take photos and videos EVERY DAY for tour, as of tomorrow (Friday!)

What a beautiful fresh morning

"Sometimes I think I have felt everything I’m ever gonna feel, and from here on out I’m not gonna feel anything new– just lesser versions of what I’ve already felt."

Photographer Francois Brunelle has been working on an amazing project; searching for people who look strikingly similar but have no relation to each other. These are some of this incredible finds. 

 

this fucked me up

no way

How does he find them!?!?

They all look like they’re old friends

I’ve been thinking about this kind of thing for a while, as I’m constantly seeing people who look like my friends out and about. Great idea.

What it means to me, seeing A Great Big World live

I struggle with words sometimes. I was adamant I had to let Chad know how much I’d loved I Don’t Wanna Love Somebody Else, because as far as songs go, that one really struck home earlier this year when it came on shuffle and I finally listened to it, and hearing Chad perform it alone on stage was a real treat. 

He’s come a long way since the days when he’d nervously grace the stage with a trumpet and possibly sing along to This Is The New Year, to a raucous and supportive cheer. Now, he is confident and graceful, ecstatic and enthused, with a commanding presence and a beautiful vocal range. He stood there with an acoustic guitar while the rest of the band waited at the side of the stage, and sung his heart out. It’s a beautiful song, and I’ve just found out that another of my favourite singers co-wrote it (Allie Moss).

Around me, are harmonies and vocal accompaniments from a crowd who this time last year, had no idea who this guy was, let alone what song it was. There are a few dedicated, older fans of the music who knew of Ian’s work prior to A Great Big World, but with Ian never really gracing the U.K. with his music, chances are, they are like me, a straggler from a time of discovering music through MySpace.

I spoke in the past of the pride I have in their success. Seeing their great perseverance, incredible positivity and enchanting delivery, I always hoped they would make it big. I want that of a lot of people, and sometimes find I put their own personal improvement and growth ahead of mine. Not ideal. But in this case, it’s a group who I’ve been championing for six years (yeah, I realised I’d seen them back in 2008) who I’d seen play to a good variety of crowds, make positive music, catchy love songs, break up tracks, beautiful piano pieces, moody and inspiring things. I’d fallen in love to their songs, with places and people. I’d taken lessons from the music over the years, and experimented with the songs in my video making.
Their friends had always been very welcoming. I remember sitting with them in my home away from home in New York, at Rockwood on a snowy night, with the small room filled with faces, many of whom had never met me before. So I talked to them. I met Rachel Zamstein there. I met many others, who were receptive to new friendships and exploring and having drinks with a Brit. Basically, I have good memories of those times. Same with Bowery Ballroom shows and the rest.

The 25th of October 2013 had Christina Aguilera tweeting about the song Say Something, which had been performed on So You Think You Can Dance. Shortly after, they had a version recorded together. At the time of writing, the video, which was released 10 months ago, has 130 million views. A fan lyric video has 23 million views. A cover version has 25 million views. The song is a big deal.

And it led to being at Bush Hall in London, where a bunch of kids from New York can play a sold out show before embarking on a tour across Europe. It led to a whole audience finding all these songs that I have loved, and new ones that I learned to love this year, and for them to be even more enthusiastic about it that I could have imagined.

I saw a girl cry at meeting them. So overwhelmed, so overjoyed that she could say hello to the guys. I saw clapping, singing, a persistent encore that led to Girl I Got A Thing For You making a return (an old Ian Axel song, though it missed Chocky’s tambourine). I saw tears in eyes and a fondness for friends of mine that I wish upon all the bands that I adore.

And I beamed with pride that their integrity, their joyous and wonderful personas were making an impact and reaching the intended people. I can’t wait to see all they become.

Bubbles!

Bubbles!

Girl had an ass with a mass excessive
I showed her a lack of respect that’s regressive
Told her my exes were happy they left
Then gave her a chance to experience regret
