I’ve always had a certain fascination with the west, and more specifically I envision what I believe the great american explorers Lewis & Clark had seen in their expedition. I have a general idea about their adventures into the west, for when I was young I was infatuated with American History and thought it was very cool to be reading the Lewis & Clark journals at an age where my friends and classmates thought was a strange way to be spending my free time. The Lewis & Clark journals were even drier than Hemingway’s The Old Man And The Sea, coming in at a whole one hundred and twenty-seven pages. That book took me almost and entire summer to complete, I remember falling asleep at around every ten pages or so.

I have never been out west, the furthest I’ve ever traveled west is the city of Chicago with their breezy politics and deep dish pizza. For now, it’s a mere dream to travel out there and see what it has to offer for me.

Below are two videos from Balmorhea and Lord Huron, the two bands I use to idealize the unmodernized west. The Lord Huron video is a music video for their track The Stranger, and the Balmorhea video is a documentary about how Rob Lowe and his crew approach their songwriting. of their recent performance at FW Modern, featuring some of their music.
