on da road w/ Wallpaper.

How many Halloween’s did we have this year? I don’t remember, it was all a blur to me too.. I’m guessing by the assortment of costumes used in this video there were at least 2 Halloweens, but maybe 3.. Anyways, this is how Wallpaper. did Halloween n junk this year in some legit looking Burt and Ernie costumes and then some..

Wallpaper. Indian Summer Desert Session

For most people, driving past endless truck stops and dusty, sun-drenched freeway towns doesn’t really inspire much creativity. In fact, such uneventful treks can tend to be pretty boring for everyone involved. This isn’t the case for Wallpaper., as Ricky Reed checked in from the road somewhere in Nevada during Wallpaper.’s current tour with an impromptu car rehearsal of his newest creation, “Indian Summer”.

The song, a singalong, synthed-out road trip jam, captures the feeling of being stuck on the road for hours on end, driving in oppressively hot Autumn conditions towards a more enjoyable destination.

Ricky even says so himself, introducing the video with these words:

“Touring is hard!  While we’re off driving through random parts of Nevada, the SF Bay Area is having an Indian Summer and the Giants win the World Series!  Wish we were home today celebrating with yall! So this desert driving tour rehearsal of our new song also titled “Indian Summer” is a tribute to our favorite place to be when its hot in Autumn. Brought to you courtesy of flip camera, duct tape, and red bull.”

Etienne! One Week Only! 9/3 – 9/9 at Brooklyn's ReRun Theater

If you will be in NY from September 3rd to 9th, please check this out!

“Enormously likable! An affectionate, raggedy road movie that feels like a throwback to more innocent times.”
– Justin Chang, VARIETY

New York, NY (Sept. 1, 2010) – ETIENNE! is a gently offbeat comedy about appreciating, literally, the little things in life. Written and directed by Jeff Mizushima—one of Filmmaker Magazine‘s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” and winner of the CineVegas “Director to Watch” Award—this sweet-natured festival fave makes its New York theatrical run with a week-long engagement, September 3 – 9 (see theater website for times).

With not a pinch of irony in his impressive mustache, soft-spoken eccentric Richard (Richard Vallejos) discovers that his best and only friend—a dwarf hamster named Etienne—has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Before saying farewell, Richard decides to show him the world on a wide-eyed bicycle trip up the California coast, along the way meeting a sympathetic pair of traveling musicians (indie rockers Great Northern), a pinhole camera enthusiast (I AM A SEX ADDICT director and WAKING LIFE co-star Caveh Zahedi) and a fellow lonely soul named Elodie (Megan Harvey).
88 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated.
*** COME EARLY FOR LIQUOR & SNACKS! Doors open 45 minutes before showtime!
*** Special Guest(s) and Guest Critic in person for Q&As following the 6pm & 9pm screenings on Friday, Sept. 3!
*** Get Your tickets HERE

“Undeniably marching to the beat of its own drummer, ETIENNE! is an oddball charmer of a scrappy first feature.”
– Michael Rechtshaffen, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
