So I went to New York a couple weeks ago to do a photoshoot for my dear friend Jocelyn Negron, who is the owner+designer of Nicolux . We used to collaborate on video installation projects a lot during college, so it was just like old times. Her jewelry is so much fun, check it out.
The Director of Photography, Gary Bardiziban (who we also went to school with), was shooting on a Red EPIC camera, which was incredibly exciting for me to see in action. I’d never seen one before. It was so much fun.

2/3 of the Tremble Collective have already completed their journey to Austin, TX for the South by Southwest Festival. We want to thank all the generous friends of Tremble for their support of our endeavors. Also a big thank you to the artists & hard working folks repping artists who’re heading down south and southwest to meet us. And we’ve got some fabulous interviews lined up. We’re excited to create some awesome, interesting & useful web content! We are also excited for BBQ.
For daily Tremble SXSW exploits and behind-the-scenes looks at our video creations, be sure to follow our twitter feed.
The newest fashion accessory in Japan is a mouthpiece made of LED lights that you can program to make your mouth glow in a variety of colors when you smile.
The accessory gained popularity when used as a feature in the marketing campaign of LaForet Harajuku (whose blog we borrowed these cute pictures from) - a boutique in Harajuku (which some of you may know as the “fashion district” of Tokyo that Gwen Stefani
ripped off used as inspiration for her L.A.M.B. clothing line).
Inspired by LED throwies, creators Daito Manabe & Motoi Ishibashi decided to show off their newest creation by outfitting them on young Japanese women and parading those women around the streets of Tokyo. Which, incidentally, is how I feel all new technology should be unveiled.
It’s just weird and techy enough to be a huge hit in Japan. Will it migrate West? Well, we did sport Silly Bandz, so why not this? It’s not as bad as some other popular Japanese fashion trends.
Kevin Bouldin, a Tremble friend, created this audio piece for the Nashville NPR affiliate WPLN. They run a series entitled “Upon First Meeting”, and in this episode he explores a music form that “predates both jazz and blues”.
excerpt from NPR article: “More than two hundred years after its birth, the stylings of this a capella music are still being enjoyed across the country from Manhattan to Northern Alabama to San Diego. WPLN’s Kevin Bouldin has this story about fasola and its connection to Music City.”
It is a beautiful piece. You should LISTEN.
