Cinema: Keep On Keepin’ On

For years a mate of mine Adam Hart was making a documentary. The first time he told me about it, we were at a makeshift bar in Nicaragua. He flew from LA and told us tales of him filming jazz music legends. Seemed like he was having a ball, even though he had never been DOP on a feature documentary before. For…

NEW MUSIC: King Tuff’s Black Moon Spell

‘Eyes of the Muse’ is the standout track here. It starts off like an old Nokia ringtone, so I intuitively reach for my phone, only to stop when the drums and catchy-as- hell riff kicks in. This song would make a great ringtone. ’Cept then you’d never answer your phone.

LENS: DYLAN GORDON

We found this sandy, 4×4-only road and took it pretty deep so that no one could find us and we could just camp for free. Smart idea in a two-wheel-drive van loaded down with dumb toys. We made dinner and passed out early so we could hit it hard in the morning. It was a starry night; there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.
