Behind the Pains



This weekend I lent a hand to the magnificent Annie Powers on an epic shoot for some new Pains press photos.



Here are just a few of the things involved: a fog machine, confetti, streamers, a fresh '90's playlist, Korbel straight from the bottle and massive amounts of bro-lovin' eternity-vibes.



Seriously, how adorkable are these guys??? Right now they're in Austin, where I hear the weather is perfect, the BBQ is to die for, and Spike Lee is strollin' around like he owns the joint. Fuhgeddabout St. Patty's Day--I'm greeeeeen with envy (wah waaaah.)

(Thanks to thedamnblue for the photographic evidence!)

UPDATE: Here's one of the final photos from the shoot. I freakin' LOVE IT.

That sounds like a line from Bottle Rocket:
"Here are just a few of the key ingredients: a fog machine, streamers, confetti, a fresh 90's playlist - can you see how incredible this is going to be? - hang gliding, come on! "

Champagne jammin'! It's the best!

You're such a sulky rocker, amidst a sea of fog, in that second photo.

I am LOVING you in jeans'n'pumps'n'blazers, by the by.

Dudes, seriously, the shoot was too much fun. My dream is for Annie to become a full time photographer and hire me as her (sulky rocker) assistant. I'll post more as they surface for sure!

And Anon, lets just say I've got a thing for bass players...you'll have to put two and two together from there ;n )

OMFG, Hotdoorknobs covered in glitters? So much better than Gossip Girl Rolling Stones ice cream cover, fur sho. You should have totally left school for a week and gone to SXSW, bro girl. Its always shorts season in Austin!

last time i went to austin, it was so freaking hot and there were so many hills, that i had no energy to go vintage shopping and i bitched out my bf.

Hahaha, oh man Anon, I'm pretty sure that's EXACTLY what would end up happening to me...that's basically what happened in both Paris AND Rome when I went there with me ex years ago. I'm such a rotten spoil sport.
