"Trouble"

Trouble 

I went home to shoot this music video. I spent hours on a roof in Azabu talking to Tokyo tower. I bathed in the lights of the city, I let the subway air blow in my face as trains whirred into the station. I tried to forget my life in the states and remember a time when this city was all I understood about the world. The world in fact is too big. My past life still lives on an island far away. Nothing in that world touches me here. I am the only place where these two worlds are one. How does it feel? It feels like I am always missing something - like I am only showing you half of who I am. Here is the other half.  

"First Kiss at The Skating Rink"

First Kiss at the Skating Rink 

Dive into the world of Seattle's favorite drag queen Betty Wetter for a colorful music video about love, donuts and rollerskates.  This music video was a bi-coastal collaboration between NC and Seattle, WA based artists and was directed by the talented Stephen Anunson.  First Kiss at the Skating Rink premiered at the Northwestern Film Forum in Seattle.   Follow Betty Wetter at her website.

"DEMONS"

DEMONS 

Track 1 on Mixtape 1 is the title track Demons. As in: DEMONS! They're inside my head. This video was inspired by Japanese art horror films and bone crushing anxiety. The kind that makes you wonder why you even do the things you think you like doing if they make you feel so bad inside. How you realize the worst parts of your anxiety is that it is your own creation - It has all the keys to unravel you - attacking private, delicate vulnerabilities - yet you cannot make it dissipate as easily as it forms. How reward, even basic life - only comes through enduring that agony. Why can't it just be light? It's like Kendrick Lamar says "It was always me verses the world - until i realized it was me verses me" It's also like that one song from the 90's I think Lit was the band - "I am my own worst enemy" Also, Sisyphus. Somewhere between those references is a point that describes exactly where I am at and maybe this mixtape. I do promise its all 100% real feelings.
