Daniel Arnold: 'The New Folk'

Daniel Arnold flew out to California last September to observe a large group of young minds camping, frolicking, and above all making music in the magical and spectacularly beautiful redwood forest of Big Sur. Jason Nocito snapped stunning images while Daniel had fascinating interviews with the artists then balled them all up into an awesome issue Fader Magazines digital-only quarterly F2.

Daniel- "i been neck-deep in this fader project since august, interviewing everyone i can get my hands on, chasing acid-peddlers in floor-length houndstooth trenchcoats around big sur redwoods as they medicate everyone in their paths, painting faces, sending postcards, burning matches, wearing raincoats and pouring everything i got into telling a few short stories about 'the new folk.' and now, it's finally live! go read it!"

A Letter From Michael Moore


Who among us is not at a loss for words? Tears pour out. Tears of joy. Tears of relief.A stunning, whopping landslide of hope in a time of deep despair.

In a nation that was founded on genocide and then built on the backs of slaves,it was an unexpected moment,shocking in its simplicity:Barack Obama, a good man, a black man, said he would bring change to Washington, and the majority of the country liked that idea. The racists were present throughout the campaign and in the votin​g booth.But they are no longer the majority, and we will see their flame of hate fizzle out in our lifetime.

There was another important "first" last night.Never before in our history has an avowed anti-war candidate been elected president during a time of war. I hope President-elect Obama remembers that as he considers expanding the war in Afghanistan. The faith we now have will be lost if he forgets the main issue on which he beat his fellow Dems in the primaries and then a great war hero in the general election: The people of America are tired of war. Sick and tired. And their voice was loud and clear yeste​rday.

It's been an inexcusable 44 years since a Democrat running for president has received even just 51% of the vote. That's because most Americans haven't really liked the Democrats. They see them as rarely having the guts to get the job done or stand up for the working people they say they support. Well, here's their chance. It has been handed to them, via the voting public, in the form of a man who is not a party hack, not a set-for-life Beltway bureaucrat. Will he now become one of them, or will he force them to be more like him? We pray for the latter.

But today we celeb​rate this triumph of decency over personal attack, of peace over war, of intelligence over a belief that Adam and Eve rode around on dinosaurs just 6,000 years ago. What will it be like to have a smart president? Science, banis​hed for eight years, will return. Imagine supporting our country's greatest minds as they seek to cure illness, discover new forms of energy, and work to save the planet. I know, pinch me.

We may, just possibly, also see a time of refreshing openness, enlightenment and creativity. The arts and the artists will not be seen as the enemy. Perhaps art will be explored in order to discover the greater truths. When FDR was ushered in with his landslide in 1932, what followed was Frank Capra and Preston Sturgis, Woody Guthrie and John Steinbeck, Dorothea Lange and Orson Welles. All week long I have been inundated with media asking me, "gee, Mike, what will you do now that Bush is gone?" Are they kiddng? What will it be like to work and create in an environment that nurtures and supports film and the arts, science and invention, and the freedom to be whatever you want to be? Watch a thousand flowers bloom! We've entered a new era, and if I could sum up our collective first thought of this new era, it is this: Anything Is Possible.

An African American has been elected President of the United States! Anything is possible! We can wrestle our economy out of the hands of the reckless rich and return it to the people. Anything is possible! Every citizen can be guaranteed health care. Anything is possible! We can stop melting the polar ice caps. Anything is possible! Those who have committed war crimes will be brought to justice. Anything is possible.

We really don't have much time. There is big work to do. But this is the week for all of us to revel in this great moment. Be humble about it. Do not treat the Republicans in your life the way they have treated you the past eight years. Show them the grace and goodness that Barack Obama exuded throughout the campaign. Though called every name in the book, he refused to lower himself to the gutter and sling the mud back. Can we follow his example? I know, it will be hard.

I want to thank everyone who gave of their time and resources to make this victory happen. It's been a long road, and huge damage has been done to this great country, not to mention to many of you who have lost your jobs, gone bankrupt from medical bills, or suffered through a loved one being shipped off to Iraq. We will now work to repair this damage, and it won't be easy.

But what a way to start! Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States. Wow. Seriously, wow.

A Truly Historic Day

November 4th, 2008
Today we mark as a true victory for those who have strived for change and a new direction in this country. The idea of an African American President was once only a dream. To say that it is a reality after these months of anticipation feels incredibly honorable and is a true testiment to how far America has come. I feel very proud and fortunate to have been a part of such a monumental event in history.
Heres to our future.

This time of year always reminds me of the book 'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' and the horrifying art in them. When i was a lot younger my older cousins would always read me these stories and scare the hell out of me.

"Come on people... there is no way you could convince me that this collection of books didn't scare the living shit out of you as a child. Pondering the days of my own self-shitting I wonder if the publishers had any idea of the impact these books would have on kids. To this day they are still printed in mass quantity and sell like hot cakes around the globe.
Many would agree that this book in particular started their fascination and addiction to the horror genre. If you look at these short stories more closely, you see they are basically mini-scripts and with the imagery of Stephen Gammell they send the stories to a frightfully personal level. Considering most of these stories have been passed down for centuries, I don't believe there would have been any other pair of men who could have collected and twisted these stories into this excellent compilation.
Some highlights include a young man withering away after peering into a mysterious man's face, a preacher who dares to spend a night in a local haunted house only to be awakened by a mysterious woman, and a woman carrying her own severed head in a wicker basket for safe keeping."

Griffith Observatory Planitarium

I highly recommend to anyone that lives in the L.A. area to go to the planitarium show at the Griffith Park Observatory. It's only 35 minutes long but it'll be the best half an hour you spend seven bucks on. The show includes an incredible 360 degree dome ceiling-screen projection of space, narrated by this guy who sounds like he could be in a movie trailer commercial. I don't think I've ever felt so small and insignificant after seeing this show because it paints the universe as such a vast and mysterious place.

So after seeing this movie, I came to a few conclusions..
1. I can't believe we elected the president we STILL have in office today.
2. Thandie Newton's portayel of Condoleezza Rice was downright scary/hilarious.
3. Republicans like to talk while chewing.
Here's some quotes from the movie that pretty much sum up how incredibly intelligent our President George W. Bush is :

George W. Bush: Yes, Ms. China?
Asian Journalist: Mr. President, what place do you think you will have in history?
George W. Bush: History? In history we'll all be dead!

Dick Cheney: [talking about torture methods] They utilize fear scenarios.
George W. Bush: You mean like pulling out their toenails?

George W. Bush: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice I-I-I can't get fooled

After seeing a post for an upcoming Folk Yeah Presents show that includes 3 bands that i already love, I came across an artist i have not heard before, Rodriguez.  His 'Cold Fact' LP  is a spectacular album and has quickly become a frequent sound coming from the speakers in my room.

Anyways, this is supposedly his first show ever in California and along with the 3 other bands playing with him (The Entrance Band, Sleepy Sun, and The Matt Baldwin Electric Band) this is a show not to be missed!

Tickets went on sale today.
