Monthly Find: September

This month's song of interest was a real find. I got to check out the Submarines as they opened for the Brazlian Girls last night at the Wiltern in L.A. Their sound in warm and inviting with a certain playfulness that I can really appreciate. Their song You, Me and the Burgeoise is awesome. And it's my favorite song pick for the month. I should note also that Bloc Party just came out with a new album. You can buy and download it from their site now, before its store release in October. I've already done that and its awesome!

Deadheads is a new horror/comedy tells the tale of a zombie on a quest for long lost love and the answer to mystery of his untimely death. This project is a labor of love for two brothers from the Detroit area, Drew and Brett Pierce. They just put out a teaser for the film and it looks like a lot of fun so far. Check out their website for more about the project. In the meantime, check out the teaser:

A little kick in the pants

I've come across a few really cool animated videos online recently through my constant blogosphere scouring. I thought I would collect them here in one post so they can hopefully do for you the same thing they do for me - give a little motivational kick in the pants.

Viva la Mexico

Originally uploaded by JPVA_LA
So its been a minute since my last post, but this is why: Melissa and I went on a week long cruise down to Mexico. We stopped in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Porta Vallarta. It was great! The week after I got back I had arthroscopic knee surgery to repair some torn cartildge in my right knee. On top of the, Cirque du Freak is into its final weeks of production so that mean crunch time! I'll have some more updates coming soon, but for now, ejoy the pictures I took in Mexico. (This is only a few, alot are still witing to be uploaded.)
