What I mean, what I mean

By the end of the day
I’m well away, that’s what I say”

Ian MacKaye: “If You Want To Rebel Against Society, Don’t Dull The Blade” | Bandwidth

nprmusic:

Over nearly two hours, WTJU veteran Aaron Margosis and Ian MacKaye spin some tunes and talk dischord history, straight edge, L.A.’s punk scene, Henry Rollins, Nazi skinheads, Fugazi’s record sales, getting courted by major labels and all sorts of subjects that would excite even a casual fan of MacKaye’s now-legendary bands and record label.

worldsworstconfidant asked: Hello I'm looking to pursue photography more as a hobby but I simply don't have the funds for a fancy smancy DSLR or anything just my iPhone. I was wondering if you had any tips on better ways to shoot on a mobile phone or anything like that. I really enjoy your photography btw and I wish that you get the success you deserve in the near future.

I edit most iphone stuffs in Snapseed, and use NoCrop to post things to Instagram in full glory. I know almost everyone else in the world used VSCO, but I’ve never really gotten into that one. 

Come up with your own general aesthetic for editing your iPhone stuffs! I love a lot of the photos I shoot with my iPhone! The best ones I add to my Timeshel and get prints delivered automatically every month. 

Happy snappin!

Anonymous asked: hi megan - i've been struggling lately with bands posting my pictures without the appropriate credit, be it on facebook, twitter or instagram. how do you ensure that you receive credit when it's due? if they ever ask for pictures and I send them over, I always request that they put my name when they use it, but this doesn't always seem to work. thank you!

When I was starting out I watermarked everything. Eventually people started to recognize my style and I stopped. If you’re working with the same bands and keep having the same problem, start making obvious watermarks. When they ask why, explain that they brought it on themselves. If someone is using your photo, and you didn’t send it to them, you have the right to ask them to take it down if they won’t give you credit. If it’s Facebook you can log a copyright claim.

If you’re in a band reading this, STOP POSTING PEOPLE’S PHOTOS WITHOUT CREDIT YOU JERKS! 

Generally, until you’re established, put a tasteful small watermark in the corner of your images when you send them to bands. Depending on the band, they can literally get hundreds of people sending them photos they think are great, and so they may just honestly not remember who shot what. 

Good luck!

Anonymous asked: What's your daily routine like now that you work at Hopeless? Did it change a lot?

My daily schedule basically did a 180 after I started working at Hopeless. I went from bartending two nights a week (3am bedtime), and weekend mornings to your normal 9-5ish schedule. 

Generally I wake up around 5:45 and eat breakfast, then go to the gym or go run a few miles to clear out my head before going into the office at 9:30. Then I check email, and make a to-do list of edits to try and accomplish that day. 
I get off work around 6:30 and if I didn’t exercise in the morning I’ll stop off and go running on my way home from work. Depending on how busy we are I’ll usually hit up one of our bands shows, or a comedy show at night, or grab a beer with my friends if nothing work related is happening. 
Weekends I hit the farmer’s market for groceries on Saturday, make myself an epic breakfast, and usually go for a longer trail run if it’s not too hot out. Sunday I sleep in, do laundry, and set goals for the week. Usually Saturday or Sunday I’ll also have an extra curricular shoot on the side. 
I appreciate having a more solid schedule these days. I miss doing long trail runs every other day, but buying a gym membership and making myself go has been a good change.
