Electric Zoo 2012 Recap

Greetings from the mass of 100,000 in attendance at Electric Zoo 2012 this year!

Hey all! Apologies for the delay on posts! I was working extra-hard to bring you a video montage recap of Electric Zoo 2012! Check out the images and video below for the full experience. For reference, I was roughly 20 feet from stage!! Footage includes Tiesto, Skrillex, Bingo Players, W&W, Dev, and Sander Van Doorn (also pardon how shaky it was, the crowd was pretty excited). For full streaming of most of the sets, check out enkay’s collection of EZoo streams!

Viral Monday: Ridiculously Photogenic!

For this weeks brief update on viral phenomenon, I’d like to revisit a personal favorite:

Ridiculously Photogenic Series

The one image that sparked a ridiculously good-looking meme. Image courtesy of Know Your Meme (which has the full story as well)

From this original image, a cropped version began to circulate across the internet with funny sayings such as:

Two examples. Images courtesy of The FW.

The man in the image, Zeddie Little, was simply running in the March 31, 2012 Cooper River Bridge Run in South Carolina when his picture was taken and uploaded to the web and submitted to Reddit. After taking off, a ‘ridiculously photogenic’ series was born. Before long there was a ridiculously photogenic woman, who had just undergone surgery and lost 60% of her lung, and was hence named “Ridiculously Photogenic Surgery Girl“. Apparently, the girl was having difficulty sleeping, and posted images of herself to Reddit on May 17, 2012,  causing a mass response and creation of a new meme.

One example, from Know Your Meme

On June 6, 2012 a ridiculously photogenic concert-goer was dubbed “Ridiculously Photogenic Metalhead” and joined the ‘ridiculously photogenic’ family of memes after being photographed at a concert in Bucharest, Romania

Which ridiculously good-looking person will join the series next?

Let me know in the comments!

Upcoming Misadventures

Hey all!

I figured I’d give you a quick informal weekend update on what to expect next!

As you might have noticed, I added some music to the blog…mainly because I’ve become a bit obsessed with Timeflies ever since I saw them at Princeton Lawnparties (it will make you wish you had tigerblood)

Timeflies, newfound obsession. From left to right: Cal, Rez. Image courtesy of State In The Real.

I will be releasing some new Uncommon Verbiage tonight or tomorrow (I’m trying to pick out the perfect one given that its concert season) as well as doing some research for Viral Monday (Ermagerd seemed to be quite popular).

What else can you look forward to?

Well, I have quite a crazy lineup of concerts coming up. Monday I will be seeing beloved band Idle Warship perform with my besties from college that got me hooked,

and then, I will be attended Saturday and Sunday of unofficial raver’s paradise, Electric Zoo. I would explain more about it, like before, except I feel like the promos speak for themselves:

From there, I am still taking suggestions!

So stay tuned, and get hyped!

We Are All Animals: Electric Zoo!

Hey guys! You may have heard me excitedly posting that I will be attending Electric Zoo this year, but just in case you missed it: IM GOING TO BE AT ELECTRIC ZOO HECK YEA!

Yea, its pretty big. This is a picture taken at Electric Zoo 2010. Image courtesy of D-Series.

To explain briefly what Electric Zoo is, essentially it is one massive music event (concert is not a fully viable word for this magnitude). It features a colossal lineup of big names like Skrillex, 3Lau, Steve Aoki, and David Guetta. I could try to explain how the entire event is one dreamy techno/dubstep-filled atmosphere of joy and exuberance…or you could just watch the trailer:

Thinking you might want to join in on the fun? Here are some things you should do before booking your tickets:
