Day 299: M.O.P.E. by Ambassadeurs

17 May

Hey guys!

I’m a big twitter fan, if you don’t know already (if you want to hear the random ramblings of my crazy mind, you can follow me: @margasaur). I follow a variety of different people from comedians to photographers, from publications to websites, from well-known musicians to totally unknown musicians. It’s like my passion to discover these people.

Well, this morning, I woke up and checked my twitter only to find this awesome DJ following me and linking me to his music for free. Going by the name “Ambassadeurs,” Mark Dobson is a DJ from Brighton, UK! He is a DJ “who’s eclectic sound draws influence from Electronic, EDM, Hip-Hop, Dub, Field Recordings, Ambient and many other forms of music and continues to try and push the boundaries when it comes to production.”

His free song is pretty much amazing, so I wanted to feature it here! The song is called “M.O.P.E.” and it is super catchy! If you like this, go check out his other music on his facebook or you can follow him on twitter @AmbassadeursDJ! But for now enjoy “M.O.P.E.”!

Also, if you’re a twitter connoisseur like myself, follow these people: @PasteMagazine, @chopchopmusic, @johnroderick, @mshowalter, @robhuebel, @fleetfoxes, @Gibbstack, @mrdavehill, @michaelianblack, and of course @UOCulturalForum!

Day 290: [BELATED] Back To The Future photos

26 Apr

Hey everyone!

So I found this gallery a few months back, and it’s just really neat.

Irina Werning is working on a project (mostly) in Buenos Aires where she finds people with old-school photos of them as a kid and then recreates the exact same picture now. Each picture gives a little insight into how these people lived their lives, and what makes it so interesting is to see how nothing has really changed!

I selected a few to put below, but I love how even the composition of how the picture was shot is the same, and for the most part the clothing stays as close to normal as possible. It’s incredible what you can do as a photographer!

Check out these and others by clicking the pictures! There will be more additions in 2011, so look out for those too!

Day 281: We Are Hunted

23 Mar

Hey everyone!

So I am completely addicted to We Are Hunted. It’s a music website that allows you to build your own playlist based on the newest bands (and some of your favorites), that you can share with others… or just listen to!

I stumbled upon this website the other night, and despite a few hiccups and inconsistencies (many of the songs are not actually playable, despite being listed as so… also some of the songs are definitely NOT by the artists they are labeled under) it’s such an awesome sight to browse!

My favorite secition is the Emerging Charts, which focus on all types of music but brings out the best music from some of the coolest indie bands out there right now! With 100 songs right off the bat to pick, and hundreds more that are searchable, it’s easy to get lost in your own playlist!

Check out the site now! And favorite my playlist!

Here’s a song that I heard on the site that I love (AND is off the new Strokes album that came out yesterday!):

Day 241: [BELATED] I AM NOT AN ARTIST

11 Feb

Described as only “An animated gif paranoia about nonstop design workers”, I AM NOT AN ARTIST is kind of a lot to take in. But if you get a chance, check it out! All the gifs are really neat, and I love checking them out myself!

Day 165: Anthropologie.com

26 Nov

Hello everyone and happy Black Friday!

Hopefully, none of you guys died in the firestorm of holiday shopping! Thankfully, my room mate and I are safe and back at home, but I know there are some crazy people out there who’ll do anything for certain sales.

But today, we went to downtown Seattle (which, if you’ve never been to park place and 6th on Black Friday, you need to… it’s like a mini-new york!!) and explored the stores, all while picking up tons of fun presents!

There was one store that literally blew our minds. Seriously.

Anthropologie, located on 6th and pike street, is one of the most amazing stores I’ve ever been in. Every trinket, dress, scarf, pillow, and item I wanted to buy and live in. It was incredible.

But of course, today I’m in a hurry, but I wanted to give you a quick taste of what amazement is going on at this store. I’ve been looking at Anthropologie’s website for over three years, and until now I’ve never had a chance to even dream about buying anything!

Check it all out because it’s AMAZING.
