Lil Nas X – Old Town Road

This is still my absolute favorite music moment of 2019. Seeing this song and Lil Nas X blow up brings me so much joy! It has actually been awhile since I’ve watched music videos and I realized after watching this one that I didn’t love it. The pattern that I’m noticing is that when I watch them, I just want it to be a constant stream of music. Instead, there’s always a story, which is fine, but then it’s broken up into pieces and feels choppier. I guess if I wanted to listen to the song without interruptions, I could do that without watching the video.

My only hope is that Lil Nas X continues to put out more bops like this one that become cultural phenomenons.

  • did y’all think we were going to run? 😛 can you run in ultraboosts?
  • ☺️ when it’s summer we still wear all black 🖤
  • this is where we live now 🥰
  • The only way we’re getting through quarantine is @juni_sf meals
  • We’re making an even bigger leap back into the archives now! I took these at Tết - the Vietnamese New Year Festival back in Feb 2008 and to this day, it’s still one of my favorite photo sets. The vibrant colors always get me 🥰
  • I’m enjoying these throwback photos more than I thought I would. I didn’t have an Instagram until mid-2012 and that’s mostly because I was still using a BlackBerry. Sometimes as we change computers, carrying over those photos with you is too much of a hassle, but I’m now seeing that there’s a reason why some of these still live on Facebook and Flickr.

My team in 2011 will agree with me on this. Campfire OK was one of the best bands we worked with that year. 💯 would book them over and over again and we sort of did. Coffee House didn’t always draw in an enormous crowd, but once a month these were my favorite nights. I love looking back and remembering how talented the individuals I worked with were, but also they were the kindest humans. ❤️
  • I was so excited for my move to California back in 2013, but it wasn’t exactly great timing for Yow Yow! Just before I left, we were able to partner with @nordstrom ‘s wedding suite, @mollymoonicecream , and @drysoda on some of my favorite collaborations.

Elliot Suhr captured these photos for us beautifully. I honestly should have hired him to do all of our collab photos. And even though this is a semi-candid shot of @vronlimhughes and I on our way out of our meeting with Dry, it’s a reminder of how far we’ve come with Yow Yow! Her opinions are the ones I trust the most and to this day she still edits the pieces I have the hardest time writing and is the last set of eyes before they go live.
  • 😆 I’m about to shake up my grid aesthetic! We have limited options when it comes to shooting at home, but now seems like a better time than ever to revisit some photos that we’ve never shared before. Despite this very moody look, I had a great time at this wedding in Yosemite back in 2016 ❤️
