Vivian Hua (華婷婷) is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine as well as a master of globetrotting for free and evading 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Marshmallows – while not really food – are one of her favorite foods, especially if they are freezered, stale, or fire-toasted. She doesn’t want to space travel, really, which is an unpopular view these days. Her design work, astrological chart, and other crap can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net.

Portugal. The Man – Modern Jesus Music Video (MV of the Week + Interview w/ Zach Carothers)

Stemming from a road trip director AJ Rojas took that spanned over a dozen states, the music video for Portugal. The Man‘s “Modern Jesus” is purposely treated to alternate between hi-def and lo-fi, as is paralleling the fascination which can be found in middle America’s often gritty underbelly. A cast of memorable characters appear to...Read...

Lumerians – Life Without Skin Music Video + Interview w/ Director Waylon Bacon (MV of the Week)

Oakland’s Lumerians are releasing The High Frontier this month, and its first single is the surprisingly female-narrated “Life Without Skin”. The track shows Lumerians at their finest, full of subdued control; they roll through different sonic moves and structural movements with ease, without leaving behind the swirling qualities they are so well-known for. Visuals have...Read...

The Octopus Project – Whitby Music Video (MV of the Week + Band Interview)

The Octopus Project have always been lofty with their artistic vision, as we learned when they first told us about their 8-projector, surround-sound performances. It’s no wonder, then, that the often overly hoaky art of stop-motion animation finds good articulation in their hands. Indeed, they actually created the music video themselves — “a product of...Read...
