All posts by Vivian Hua

Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 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). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.

This Is Versailles – “Robot Beach” Music Video

The lyrical content is questionable a little bit, but here’s a little banger of a song from the female-fronted This Is Versailles. They make pretty sassy garage rock that really just reminds me of bands I miss, like Controller.Controller. Cool. They only have one four-track EP under their belts, but I’m looking forward to seeing...Read...

Buke & Gass – Riposte Album Review

Buke & Gass certainly make music that is both adorably charming and unbelievably grating. Their latest album, Riposte, clocks in at just under 45-minutes, but its 14 tracks seem to go on forever in what feels like an off-the-wall, high-energy experimental pop-rock marathon. Like a mixture of Nedelle Torrisi of Cryptacize and Hayley Williams of...Read...

Explosions Of Color Sarah Moli Newton Applebaum

Punk Collage Darling Linder Sterling

I just want to give a quick shout to the fine folks at Almost Velvet, who’ve done a quick bio and recap into the work of Manchester’s Linder Sterling, whose early work in Manchester’s punk and post-punk scene are still relevant today. Just look at the sheer number of collages popping up these days that...Read...

This will be showing at Disjecta at 8:00pm on September 3rd. Check out this description: A one-hour multimedia video opera based on the...Read...
