please help japan!

Sorry that I have not posted for so long, but this past week and a half has been very tough... many restless nights! To make a long story short, the strings of tragic/horrific events that occurred... and stilling occurring in Japan, in particular in the Tokhoku Region, had a great impact on me. Two of my best friends, Liam and Davey, were in Sendai when the mega earthquake and tsunami hit. Thankfully, I am happy to say that they are alive and have (at the moment) re-located to Osaka—away from the unstable nuclear plants in Fukushima. Nevertheless, up until maybe a few days ago, I was still extremely worried about all the crazy aftershocks as well as their living situation, with the lack of resources such as water, electricity and food. So there you go, I was in no mood to post until now.

I designed/made a bunch of stickers to raise fund for Japan relief efforts. I am donation 100% of the proceeds to The Canadian and/or Japanese Red Cross. Check out my Japan relief stickers here and here. Please email me if you would like to help out! Thanks!

In case you missed my tweet or don’t follow Fleet Foxes on Twitter, Robin Pecknold (frontman of Fleet Foxes) posted a link to download three brand new solo songs yesterday!!! (OMG!) As if that’s not awesome enough, the first track, "I'm Losing Myself" features Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear!

wild run of the ohmu

Totally stoked for the North American release (March 8) of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind on blu-ray!!! One of my favourite films of all time also features an awesome soundtrack! Check out "Nausicaa Requiem" on the right.

ps, I am still very jealous of the beautiful design/packing from the Japanese release.

song of the moment

Check out "I Want You", the first song revealed off of Summer Camp's forthcoming full-length album. I am excited for this record... definitely want to hear more from the same London based duo who last year brought us those awesome videos for "Round The Moon" and "Ghost Train"... oh, and not to mention the very entertaining Young EP!
