Tuesday, August 12, 2014 Globetrotter: Russian Rebel Elena Sheidlin

DSC_0162

Elena Sheidlin embodies everything that is good about fashion:  she’s fearless, creative, and one of a kind.  The 20-year-old, St. Petersburg-based blogger is usually sporting electric blue hair and covered in tie dye, feline prints, or something cosmic. She’s a fan of looking different, wearing ballsy outfits in a country where “it takes courage to stand out,” to say the least. We caught up with Elena to talk little blue whales, backpacks as safety blankets, and why defiance is the most important accessory.

Recently I’ve been spending most of my time on an airplane with my band, White Lung, playing shows all over the world. Things have been pretty nice, I’m not going to lie. This past weekend, we played a show in Los Angeles, then the next day got on an airplane and headed to Japan to play Fuji Rock Festival 2014. Here’s how that was.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 Culture Shock: Greece-d Lightning

Hey guys, it’s me again, your friend the worst. You may remember me from my recent gripping and provocative piece on learning to love Paris. After I made my peace with the French (with the exception of the waitress at that cafe who told me there was no more breakfast and then proceeded to serve three different tables Eggs Benedict I hate you forever), I headed over to Greece to meet my friends Mish Way (of White Lung) and Hether Fortune (of Wax Idols and current bassist of White Lung) where they had a break from their international tour. We had arranged to have a little ladies vacation in Hydra, one of the Saronic islands about three hours from Athens by ferry (no relation to the evil world-wide organization that was the enemy of Tony Stark, I don’t think anyway). With the exception of one crazy night in Athens with our pals Deafheaven, all we really engaged in was some pretty high level chilling. If you ever make it over this corner of the Aegean Sea, here are some of our travel tips…

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Culture Shock: Globetrotter: Oui Out Here In Paris

photo 1

I have a confession to make. Come closer. No, closer. *whispers* I don’t like really Paris. That’s right, I said it. It’s yet another marker that separates me from my gender (female) and my species (hipster). I don’t care for French food, I don’t eat baguettes or croissants, and I entertain no romantic notions of writing poetry at a charming cafe in Le Marais or strolling arm in arm with a handsome stranger along the banks of the Seine discussing Proust while wearing some sort of swishy dress. I have to go there once or twice a year for work (do you hear the tiniest violin ever playing me a sad symphony?) and generally I serve as a painful embarrassment to the USA, scurrying around with a giant iced Americano (lol) from Starbucks, dressing like more like Joey Ramone than Jane Birkin, and culling more of my meals from the supermarket than from chic little bistros. I am, in short, the worst. However, this last trip over to the city of lights, I managed to actually enjoy one of the most beautiful cities in the world (applause, please) thanks to some great friends, a better attitude (thanks, therapy!), and a few insider tips, all of which I am here to share with you.
