HEART BEATS FOR ALL OF THE RAD VISITORS!!!

I am still waiting for the moment where I don't WANT to be at RAD SUMMER. the day where I am all, I have to wooooork? But it still has yet to come. I love hangin' out on my days off, love talking to all of the people who come in, I'd bet my dog our customers are a part of a magical commune. I love hearing people trip out when they open the door to the dressing room (thanks Jen!) or watching people bliss out on one of Honey's handmade dresses/shirts. I especially adored a certain customer, the owner of CHERRY, a vintage store in New York. Let's just say Cesar has VIP status. Check out his store at cherry ny

Supes rad. So thank you to all who have come by, we are so excited and happy to be sharing the RS with you!

thanksgiving is now

last night a bunch of us hung out at holocene watching white rainbow and the plants. fun times. i listened transfixed while maria told tale of how she had just tried to stop a street fight a block away and almost got taken down by some huge dude. she single-handedly saved some girl from getting her head bashed in. she escaped with only a swollen lip. that's what you can do when you're a 6ft super model. maria is SO COOL! heart bubbles. then brian slaughter reminded me of this funny video adam and i made.
the oak street posse is in full effect tonight. stop by if you love love.

Mister Lonely


I CAN'T WAIT to see this movie! Celebrity impersonators (played by Diego Luna, Samantha Morton, Denis Lavant and Werner Herzog) in a French commune? Gimme! So stoked that Harmony Korine dropped the crack smoke, gained a few pounds and finally put out a new movie!

Soul Harping


My sweet friend DJ Maxxbass called this incredible gem to my attention; the harp stylings of Dorothy Ashby. Maybe it's cheesy to be into an artist because she also has the name Ashby, but damn. She's legit groovy. I uploaded a track here called Soul Vibrations. I hope you dig it on this blustery November Saturday.

In an update, been playing a lot of guitar lately...to the point that I didn't even realize that I sit down to it as soon as I get home. Influenced a lot by Love, this song Stranger by the Kinks, and the classical jam Peer Gynt. Also bought a copy of Dog Fancy and have been working diligently on drawing furry forms.

Love,
Ashby

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE GOTTEN MYSELF INTO....



YOU CAN SEE PEEZA'S RENDITION ON TUESDAYS AND SATURDAYS AT THE STORE.

blowin in the wind

The time has come for me to nesstle in a new nest but have yet to find one. If anyone know of a studio/1 br/basement that is available please let me know! I would prefer to stay in the inner SE of portland, AND I have a small pug. Other than that life has been all different colors lately, Honey and I have been putting energy into the behind the scenes "back room" and it will soon be LOUUUUUUUUUNGE VIBE! We also got a TV/VCR so we will be playing old and rad vhs at the store-bring popcorn and chill! The store is filling in, more RECORDS! more SHOES! I am still so excited about every shift I work, each day gives new projects life. thanks RAD SUMMER.xoxoooo
