San Francisco indie rock band Girls has disbanded. Singer and principle songwriter Christopher Owens has announced that he is leaving the band for personal reasons. Owens released a statement saying “I am leaving Girls. My reasons at this time are personal I need to do do this in order to progress. I will continue to write and record music.” Pitchfork ranked the Girls album ‘Father, Son, Holy Ghost’ the 5th best album of 2011.
In other news, last weekend the guys from Girls were working at a thrift shop called Vacation SF down the street from my house. Side job?
When I’m bored I often find myself eating pizza, thinking about the world, or reading blogs on Tumblr. I recently stumbled across a pretty funny blog. Girls Who Look Like Skrillex. I never really noticed how much Skrillex looks like a girl, but some of the comparisons are astonishing. And some of these babes are pretty hot. Weird? Yes.
And finally today… I’ll leave you with some pretty cool pictures by photographer Lia Halloran. The photos are called Skateboarding With Light, and it is her work shooting skaters with a really low shutter in the evening. The results are awesome light trails and no figure left behind. Pretty cool huh? I do say so myself.
Ok that’s all for me. I’m outta here. YOu have a nice rest of your day. Later.
