Addison Skates Austin

Since Maile’s skater-cousin Addison arrived in Austin to work for a few weeks, we’ve been spending weekends hanging at skate parks and discovering new spots. I alternate between remembering how to ride a skateboard and shooting pics and vids of him.

Finally, today, Adds and I cranked out a little montage of the best footage we’d got so far. We were pleased.

SXSW2010: Timber Timbre at Red's Scoot Inn

Thanks to Lib, I got out to hear a great Montreal band called Timber Timbre. I thought of M Ward singing Tom Waits. Taylor Kirk delivers his wonderful lyrics, a kind of carnival biblical blues (Waits, Cohen) with a steady kick and occasional intense twitch. And on either side of him eerie, atmospheric strings, a violin and a steel guitar, both through arrays of haunting effects. Wonderful show.
