“Many Moons” – Former Selves

March 26th, 2012 | music

Just the sort of thing to take the edge of a harsh Monday afternoon: synth dreams and video feedback.

LOGOTONE: Meredith Yayanos

March 26th, 2012 | station ident

My old friend Meredith Yayanos, musician and editor of COILHOUSE, kindly provides the logotone for this week on the site. “It’s… not very kindly,” she says.

Good morning. This is warrenellis dot com.

Joy Division by Ryan Kelly

March 23rd, 2012 | people I know

Ryan Kelly is the artist on the new DC Vertigo comics release SAUCER COUNTRY and the webcomic COCOTTE.  Oh, and here’s the Flickr link for this image.

And that’s it for me this week.  I’m going to go away and see if I can remember how to emblog, because I do seem to have totally lost it…!

Have a good weekend.

FAQ 22mar12

akiramich asked: My favorite WhiteChapel threads were the ” What’s in Your Everyday Bag?” posts. Can you tell us what you’ve got in your kit these days?

I don’t believe someone asked me this.  I took a quick photo with an old iPhone 3GS and spent a minute slinging some notes on it, badly:

You may be able to make out, resting on the keyboard case, a Boxwave stylus for iPad, for rough sketching.

That’s one Field Notes notebook and one Moleskine notebook.

Kindle and iPad are both wifi only.  The iPhone 4G is in an Otterbox case.  The e-cig brand is VIP, which I was turned on to by Sarah Pinborough.  At the bottom there is two pens and a propelling pencil.

If I’m just out for the day, the iPad gets left behind – that only comes with me on an overnight.  All regular business, I can do on the iPhone.  Which tires it out, hence carrying the battery sleeve.  The bluetooth earpiece is mostly used for listening to podcasts while on the move.

You can ask me something at warrenellis@gmail.com or at Tumblr.
