"amateurs…amateurs…we’re wasting our time here lads"
whiteandnightthings asked: what kind of camera do you use? any one in particular you would recommend for some starting out in digital format?
I use a Canon Rebel T3i, it’s actually very simple and user friendly for beginners or anyone switching from film to digital.
I always suggest starting out with a any sort of cheap film camera. Thrift stores, yard sales are great places to grab something basic to start with.
I also suggest any sort of Point n Shoot for starting with digital. I started with a cheap Point n Shoot before moving to my current camera. In fact, since it’s the holidays places like Best Buy have a bunch digital Point n Shoots for mad cheap.
josephxipatzi asked: Hey! Did you take any photos of AN at the show? I saw you diving, wasn't sure if you were taking pictures!
I only took photos of Death of Lovers.
of all my years of taking photos at shows and the countless times I’ve seen AN since their first West Coast tour… I’ve never photographed an AN set. So, I planned on taking photos of but once the intro started I bailed on the idea & hit da pit. HA
I figured. stage dives > photos.

SSleaze is a synth-punk/darkwave project… you can listen to their demo here:
AMERICAN NIGHTMARE / CHAIN REACTION
the difference a day…
the difference a few hours…
the difference a few minutes can make.
I hate being treated like as if I’m living under some sort of microscope…
as private as I am…
as often as I bite my tongue…
I do my best to give people the benefit of the doubt…
fuck it, I’m just in a shitty mood…
and I’ve honestly said too much…
I truly don’t give a shit anymore.
I’m gunna go listen to Slint and clear my head.
I didn’t get a stuffed doll but I did take a selfie.
Death of Lovers
Chain Reaction // 12.12.13
Death Of Lovers was formed in Philadelphia by Nick Bassett (Whirr, formerly Deafheaven) and Domenic Palermo (Nothing, Horrorshow).
Although Death Of Lovers carries qualities of members previously applauded efforts, they carry a shimmer and fuzz all their own. Dreary vocals, slow motion melody, and plodding percussion swirl together to create a crushingly depressing atmosphere. Kicking up the dust of their prominent influences (Joy Division, The Cure, etc) as they explore the fractured depths the of their uniquely haunting sound. A beautifully addictive introduction to their greatness to come.
below is a link to preview a track off their "Buried Under a World of Roses" 12inch on Deathwish Inc.
Tonight, I made a friend, homie was mad tight… I named this little guy Wilbur.
