MICHAEL JACKSON – THRILLER

Easter sunday was full of bodies that resurrected from the dead and took to South st to get drunk. Hundreds of zombies roamed the streets and made the families enjoying a nice easter dinner confused, worried and mortified. There were everything from zombies enjoying a nice dinner to zombies posted at the bar to zombies dancing the night away. I took part in all three.

This was probably not for the religious at heart. I am not religious and still felt slightly guilty.

Plenty of blood , brains and chaos for one of my more weird easter sundays.

Til next time.

THIRD EYE BLIND ROCKS XFINITY LIVE

Philadelphia is the best sports city hands down! Too have every stadium in walking distance from each other…and only a 15 minute subway ride from the city incredible. Now Philadelphia has added Xfinity Live directly in the middle of the stadiums. A hand full of crazy bars, gigantic screens and more than enough food makes going to the game worth it even if you don’t have a ticket. Check out the details at the link below…its impressive, loud and chaotic….all qualities I love.

The grand opening was set off by a free concert by Third Eye Blind. I didn’t know about this show til a few hours before it started. I phoned a few friends and found some willing to head down…it was worth it. I danced to some classics and was able to see one of my favorite bands. How can you not like Third Eye Blind.

I was also able to snap a few photos.Image

After the show I was decently drunk and headed to Chickies and Petes and stuffed my face with mussels, crab legs, wings cheese fries and few more beers. That was my idea of heaven.

Til next time….



FOXY SHAZAM IN PHILADELPHIA

Back in December 2010 I put up a post on FOXY SHAZAM performing in San Diego, CA

https://urbansetting.wordpress.com/2010/12/08/foxy-shazam-at-710-club/

…well I was finally able to reconnect with them on the opposite coast. I recently saw them perform at the North Star Bar in Philadelphia, PA. The place was no larger then a decent sized studio apartment and I had to dodge heads, hands and people dancing to grab a few photos (while still remembering to dance a lil myself.

After the show I was able to have a brief conversation with the lead singer, Eric Sean Nally. I was able to pass along my business card which features a picture of Foxy Shazam from their show in San Diego, CA. I hope it brings me more work, but I did it more a sign of admiration of their music. I hope they found it a compliment that I would feature them on an object that I would hand to the world.

Check out the link below to see their latest video for “I Like It”.

BROAD & GERMANTOWN AVE – PHILADELPHIA, PA


Im baaaaaack!!!

Here’s a short preview of a building I explored earlier today. I only got an hour before the sunset. So I will be going back and shooting more, and a full post will be up soon. Future shoots are in the works as well.

Thanks you to everyone who is still following Urban Setting…even though I’ve been way to quiet.



ORIGINAL INSPIRATION

Plain and simple….Palladium boots has been my original inspiration for exploring abandoned buildings. I always found abandonments to be intriguing, but I started to take the exploring more serious after falling in love with the boots and Palladiums backbone and style. Palladium recently released a new video with Pharrell exploring Tokyo. It has been out for sometime and is definitely worth a look. The video is a great insight into the art culture and society of Tokyo after the tragedy from the earthquake and tsunami on 3/11. TOKYO RISING also explores some amazing abandonments inside a city full of technology and color.

 


 

This recent video also inspired me to pick up a new pair of boots. The BLACK LEATHER BAGGY GUSSET. They are currently in the mail and will hopefully be in my hands (on my feet) soon.


 

So head on over to Palladiums website and check out their new video TOKYO RISING. Just follow the link below.

Ill be uploading some of my own explorations soon.

Thanks for reading.

I need to start exploring again and have recently reunited with my old exploring buddy. We’re currently discussing new locations to invade and document.
