A&C Favourite Things - October 17th

arts-crafts:

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at Arts & Crafts?
Well, the stone-cold pack of loveable weirdos that make up Team A&C want to share with you a few of the things (and songs!) that keep our motors running throughout the week.
 Tune in here every Friday to get a taste of A&C’s Favourite Things.
Without further ado…
Aaron: Kevin Gates’ Instagram account 
Bled: (COMIC BOOKS, DUH) Charles Burns’ latest completed trilogy, starting with X’ed Out (2010) and The Hive (2012) - completed this week with the release of Sugar Skull.  So good.

Cam: Attack On Titan (Anime): Giant humanoids creatures voraciously eat humans seemingly without reason and have wiped out the earth’s population all but a couple hundred thousand survivors who live in a walled city the size of a province/state. A really great take on the typical Godzilla-esque monster story mixed with a touch of zombie tropes.
Ian K: Prince’s Q&A on Facebook….in which he answered a whole 1 question…3 hours after it was asked. Because, Prince. 
Jamie: THIS PIZZA CAKEJenna: Nick Cave’s “Soundsuits” (2006) Not THE Nick Cave but Chicago based performance and textile artist Nick Cave. This shit is crazy! 
Jonathan: Apples from Beaverton Valley 
Meagan: Sweater capes, calypso music, salt water taffy and paisley tops - wait nope that’s Oprah (been hitting the 30 Rock pretty hard this week)
Don’t forget to visit us on Spotify to hear some of the tracks that have been dominating our brain boxes over the last 7 days.
This week’s tracklist:
1) Houses - The Beauty Surrounds2) Lydia Ainsworth - Hologram3) Tennis - Never Work For Free4) Prince, 3RDEYEGIRL - PRETZELBODYLOGIC5) Tweedy - Diamond Light Pt. 1 6) SBTRKT feat. A$AP Ferg - Voices In My Head7) Jon Mueller - Impatience8) Dead Soft - Never Forever

You think people was meaner then than they are now? the deputy said.
The old man was looking out at the flooded town. No, he said. I don’t. I think people are the same from the day God first made one.
