Embrace the Decay

Don’t worry, I’m not going Hot Topic on you. Quite contrary, in fact.  I got to see Doug Burr last night (thanks to my friend Daniel insisting I would not regret it if I went…thaaaanks!!) at a little art gallery here and he was awesome. I honestly had never heard of him before but was pretty amazed at the amount of control he had over his voice and the overall manner in which he presented himself.  I did some research on him after returning home and found this video which, amazingly, was shot using a Nikon D90. Gah people are so talented. I’ve been listening to his music since I got home I’m pretty sure I love him a million times more after having the chance to fully appreciate the lyrics. Amazing.

Listen to much more at Fairtilizer

I love the building this is shot in. Somehow I have always been attracted to abandoned and forgotten places. There’s something so simultaneously creepy and peaceful about them.

just like everyone’s asleep when it’s passing through.”
