Back in Novemeber, my friends and I ran drove to the east coast and back on a little DIY style tour. It was an amazing time. We made a pit stop in Ohio for a video session with Little Elephant. They are a recording studio run out of this little house. Good guys, good times. This is the first of two videos. Be amazing and share the shit out of this on your social media phone fuckers.
AND IF YOU ARE DOING NOTHING you should come to my solo show Jan 31st at The Riverwest Filling Station. its Free... 9pm. dont suck. Come, eat food, ignore me in the corner, it will be great!
Back in Oct I was invited by Nellie Vance in conjunction with Fun TV to show some artwork at their upcoming show. This was the first time I got the opportunity to show my work and had a great time doing it. When I was thinking about summarizing these pieces I was unable to figure it out at the time. I believe this is because they were original taken and created for different reasons. The photos with the mask were taken for a photography class, and the rest kinda formulated over the years. I enjoy old horror films and I think this influenced me a lot in my vision. By putting them all together I think I’m trying to create confusion between the dream world and reality. Each picture could represent little memories that you may have had after waking up. Over time your remembrance of them gets intertwined with reality and what may or may not have happened. Essential you are left with an image that was created somewhere in reality and your subconscious. For more of my work check out my blog at http://www.songfortheman.com/--- Blake Van Egeren

THE REVENGE SOCIETY
"Post-hardcore has historically been a dude-heavy genre, but that’s not to say women can’t get in on the action. Singer Amber Ruthe cuts through the testosterone and offers her own viciously soulful take on the sound in the Milwaukee quartet The Revenge Society, lending a dangerous, sexual charge to the group’s new EP, Wolves on Parade. Recorded with Shane Olivo at Bobby Peru’s Recordings, the album includes a sly tribute to Jeffrey Dahmer, “Six Feet of Shade.” The band plays an EP release show tonight at Riverwest’s Cocoon Room. – The Shepherd Express" www.facebook.com/therevengesociety
I AM DRAGON (Madison)
The finest mythical beasts and rockin' beats Madison, WI has to offer.
Grungy, loud punk rock akin to such greats as Nirvana, Mudhoney and the Stooges
THE COCOON ROOM
Milwaukee art and fashion boutique/collective.

These videos are projects I did for a Digital Studio Practices class.
The first video, Break Down, is a drift in conjunction with spoken word, exploring a somber relationship between a break down of the human mind and and the break down of nature. The second video, Reminder, is a further exploration of the drifting/dériving process (learn more here) incorporating human involvement. The spoken word is a poem, based off of an exerpt from Frances Hodgson Burnett's book, The Secret Garden. I reworked the poem in a way intended to elicite a thought process about the changing of the seasons and coinciding life and death of nature and the self.
Milwaukee's own indie-grass side project ensemble rereleased their single, 'Savior.'
You're gonna wanna put on your stomping boots for this one.
The Lousy Trouts are:
Banjo - Jack Tell from Animals in Human Attire
Mandolin - Jordan Maye from The Rusty Nickel Band
Bass - Alex Heaton from The Ugly Brothers
Heres a short clip from some video experimenting
I was basically pointing the camera directly at the sun, giving the shot an obvious lens flare. After a some color correction and mirroring the image on both the X and Y axis, I though the end result turned out pretty cool.
