While scouting for a shoot last week I asked Eli to give me his best band pose, this is what he came up with.
An ad we shot for Motorola with Anomaly is on the back of this week’s LA Weekly! We knew they were running because we already saw them in some other mags, but for some reason it just looks so rad on the back of LA’s free newspaper. It was a great (but super last minute) shoot that came together in less than a week. Anomaly asked if we could pull off a show at a club where basically the crowd is super excited but it needs to look as crowded and of course, as real as possible. So we put out the word to friends on the Facebook, the Day19Twitter, sent out about 200 text messages and it all came together brilliantly. It wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our friends coming out, our fantastic agents for going above and beyond what any other agent would do, Jim for letting us use The Smelland without the good folks at Anomaly and Motorola believing we could pull off what we promised we could (with 2 days notice). Everyone was super stoked with the outcome, a bunch of people came out and got to stage dive for maybe their first and/or last time, and our good buddy Mickey is now in ads running all over the world! Yes, THIS Mickey.
Thanks again everyone.
It’s baseball season again. I’m not the biggest baseball fan by any means but I did grow up rooting for my beloved New York Mets. But now after living here for over a decade and raising our son here can I really pass down the tradition of rooting for a baseball team 3000 miles away? I mean, we are in NY a ton and could catch a good amount of games but that’s nowhere near as easy as driving 2 minutes down the road and catch a game. With that said, GO DODGERS! (This is the type of shit I think about way too much).
