Last week, one of our own got hit by a car while riding his bike to a concert, Dyson of dyson sound and this humble little collective. As you know, I ride my bike, let’s just say, a lot. It can be nutsos out there, bad drivers, bad cyclists, bad roads, and lots of really bad people. I don’t know all the circumstances of Matt’s accident, but we here at the paper crane collective wish him nothing but best wishes and get wells and hugs and kisses and sexy nurses and sexy doctors and maybe a sponge bath or two.
We also believe that though laughter may be “the best medicine”, music HAS to be coming in at No. 2, right? So, with that, we built a little mixtape. It’s actually a mixtape that, thanks to Matt, became a mixtape of many dedications. Dedications to all the friends Baby & I have made thanks to this blog, the photography, twitters, facebooks, etc, etc. We have made some of the most amazing friends from all over the world and right here in our backyard, and it’s because of them, of people like Matt, people like the amazing Nudie Cranes that Baby & I went to burlesque and girls night out with on Saturday, people like Chris at Culture Bully who we hung out with now in two different countries, people like Ben & Isa from our humble little music board that hosted us & fed us cheese in Lyon, France, and on and on and on…
It’s not about the number of hits, the page views, the number “likes”, “friends”. or “followers”, no…. it’s about the connections, the conversations, the actual & real friendships you make. Otherwise, what’s the point? Well, I guess there’d be internet porn, but you guys get me, right?
So, with that, let’s get to this… Matt, we love you buddy, get well soon!
