Did you see the new banner????? Yep, spent a little time hanging it up last night in preparations for…
wait for it…
MIXTAPES WEEK!!!!! YAY!!!
Very exciting, eh? I KNOW!!!
Now, before we get started, I’ve got some very exciting news from the world of TSURUFOTO (the photography wing of Tsuru Industries, lol). A few months back, I was interviewed by a saucy online & now print publication called Devora Ran out of Mexico. Absolutely fantastic — and extremely NSFW as the site challenges our concepts of sexuality and photography — magazine and collected imagery! Well….
Though the magazine is in Spanish, that link should be to the English version. Though, my recommendation, is to go to the Spanish one then have google or babelfish translate it, it makes for a very interesting read as we go from Tsuruglish to Spanish to automated-English and really, that’s funny shit!
Anyways, I hope you enjoy, not only Devora Ran, but the article & interview & photography by your boy Tsuru!
But… as much as a Monday full of naked people is a heaping cup of awesome, you are hear for the kick off of Mixtapes Week, so kick it off we shall!!!
Got a fun one for you! Society member winter1610, after experiencing frustration from his friends over at his blog at the obscurity of some of his sweet mixtapes, decided to build a sure-fire crowd pleaser… The results? A sweet & fun 12 song gem filled with a few familiars, a remix & a mash-em-up or two to get the week moving the right direction!
Now, this is just the beginning this week as hopefully, between our community, the paper crane collective, and myself, you’ll be inindated with so many mixtapes, you may just have to unbutton your metaphorical pants to make room!!!
Mmm….. Alright! Let’s do this thing as…
