Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing an great bunch of folks I've gotten to know recently- the band Penny Louis. They are awesome musicians, lovely people, and they put on a great show (I should know- I played with them a few weeks ago!)
If you are in the city, drop by to see their set at The Bitter End this Sunday (tomorrow, 10/19!) Only $5!
PAULINE ANNE- I'm Pauline of Awesomeland. I'd like to be called Penny but wouldn't that be too egotistical? I can't go a day without coffee, I love James Dean and my mission in life is watch everything Kevin Spacey is in. I'm not as in tune with popular culture as I seem and I'm fine with that. I'd like to live through the 50's with their tacky ads. They're ridiculous!
JOHN MORALES- I'm John The Stretcher. I work as a Physical Therapist Assistant in my day job, a bassist for Penny Louis, and a bookshop keeper in the American Museum of Natural History. My dream is to become the Kaiser of the Roman Empire in the year 1.
MAY MADARANG- Makeshiftmay here! Literally my motto for just about EVERYTHING! While the band would say I'm very organized, I'm also the type that's content with making-do with practically any situation I'm put in. I play most music by ear, so call me a "makeshift musician" (violinist) even. I'm an energetic and a "Jacklyn of all trades."
MICHAEL CHRISTIAN- My name is Michael and I am neat, I love pretty girls and I love to eat! Percussionist of Penny Louis and a singer/songwriter myself. I love puppies, long walks in the beach and sunrise and sunset, Kate Upton, drawing constellations and myself.
NIKHOLAI PUNTO- Hi, my name is Nikholai Punto, you can call me Nikko! I'm Penny Louis' guitarist.

Guitar by Martin
Alright! It's the long-awaited return of the style post. Not just any style post, mind you... this is a collaboration conjured up by Lulu's and I. It's a creative take on what I would wear to perform on the stage of my dreams!
ALSO, this is a two-part series. I'll be posting a video next week of me playing a song from my new EP (wearing my new duds of course :) More on that to come!

SOMEONE (I wonder who...) loves playing in freshly opened boxes.....
Especially when she can lay across several layers of packaging.
Anyway, this is the beginning of a loooong-overdue collaboration between Lulu's and I.
It won't be your typical blog-product collaboration :)) More details this week. xxo

Do you ever feel like something inside you just breaks?
Like you're going along fine, doing the work you've always done. And then you hit your limit of... something. You try to rev up that old engine of your motivation... but you can't go anywhere. You look down at the fuel meter, and it just reads: "NOPE." Oops... guess I ran out of gas :P
