Stick Figure Shares Retro-Style Music Video For ‘Shadow’ – Premiere

first_imgVideo director Bulldog Media’s Joe W. speaks more in-depth about the band’s decision to shoot in this style. “I came up with the idea after listening to the song a few times. I’ve always wanted to do a 1950’s era video and thought this song would be a good fit. The lyrics “Old Country Road” made me think about the roads surrounding where I grew up in Sonoma County. We ended up shooting the film outside of Petaluma, CA, about 30 minutes from my home town. It was the perfect setting to match my vision for the video.”The song itself was written by Woodruff, and the first-ever song recorded at the band’s Ruffwood Studios in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Built by Woodruff himself, creating a workspace was influential on the album’s direction. “The process of building a studio from scratch in the mountains, surrounded by Redwood trees, yet 15 minutes from the beach, really framed the concept and direction of the album.”Stick Figure is on tour throughout March and the majority of 2016, so don’t miss the group on the road!

Woodruff speaks fondly of Cocoa, saying that she “is essentially a member of the band. She is on stage every night, walking the perimeter and greeting the fans. She also gets first pick on choosing her bunk on the bus!”Enjoy the new music video for “Shadow” below:last_img read more

Idalia running hot

first_img8 Ridgewood Pocket, Idalia.IDALIA is drawing interest from Townsville families and buyers interstate according to M Property agent Martin McDonough.Mr McDonough is selling 8 Ridgewood Pocket and has listed it as offers to purchase so as not to under value the home.“With the sales we’ve had in the last six weeks in the area we’ve actually achieved a little bit higher than what the market was telling us and that was due to transients coming into the city,” he said.“So we decided to take the price out and see what these people coming from places like Sydney and Canberra were happy to pay because they are coming from markets where the median house price is $700,000 or $800,000 and coming into an area where there is value for money and our vendors could get $20,000 or $30,000 more.“We’re actually starting to see investors coming back into the market as well.“Fairfield is known for the back half of the year being busy so October, November and the first half of December is when it really sells. It probably sells 60 per cent of it’s property during that time.” 8 Ridgewood Pocket, Idalia. Mr McDonough said the home would be perfectly suited to a family.“Potentially it’s the right size home for an executive style family or a family in general,” he said.“The market is turning and Fairfield is running really hot.“It’s in proximity to Lavarack Barracks and Townsville Hospital and being a newer estate that’s also close to the city and the university it tends to be popular.” 8 Ridgewood Pocket, Idalia.

Another Clayton Kershaw gem moves Los Angeles Dodgers into share of first in NL West

first_imgOn the day their ace turned in yet another dominant performance, the Dodgers regained a share of first place in the National League West.With Clayton Kershaw striking out 13 and running his scoreless innings streak to 28, the Dodgers earned a 6-0 victory over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday and caught the San Francisco Giants atop the division, a team they trailed by 9 1/2 games just three weeks ago. Kershaw held the Cardinals to five hits over seven innings and improved his record to 9-2 in front of a crowd of 47,739 on a gorgeous Southern California afternoon.“As a starting pitcher, you want to keep your team in the game early,” said Kershaw, “then we can break through (offensively). … We’ve been scoring a lot of runs (lately), and that’s a sign for a good team.” The closest St. Louis came to scoring came in the second inning, when catcher Yadier Molina’s deep fly ball down the left field line short-hopped the fence and went for a leadoff double. But Kershaw struck out Peter Bourjos and Shane Robinson for the first two outs, then got former Dodger Mark Ellis to ground out to third.Matt Carpenter and Ellis also doubled in later innings, and Carpenter stole second following a single in the third, but no St. Louis runner moved beyond that point against Kershaw.Since an early-season stint on the disabled list, Kershaw has gone 8-2, including a 6-0 mark in June that included a 15-strikeout no-hitter and a 0.82 ERA.“He had one rough outing (an 18-7 loss to Arizona on May 17),” said Matt Kemp, who was 2 for 3 with an RBI Sunday, “and since then he’s been the best pitcher in the world. He’s getting better and better every year, and that’s hard to do. … It’s fun to watch.”Sunday’s victory, coupled with San Francisco’s 4-0 loss to Cincinnati, moved the Dodgers into a share of first place in the division. Los Angeles trailed the Giants by 9 1/2 games on June 8 but has gone 13-6 since then. Over the same stretch, San Francisco has gone 4-15. “Everyone in here is confident in this team’s ability,” said Kershaw. “When we were struggling, everyone knew in the back of their minds we could do it. … It goes back to being a veteran team and not getting too high or too low.”St. Louis starter Shelby Miller (7-7) retired the first eight hitters he faced and held the Dodgers hitless until the fourth. Yasiel Puig led off the fourth with a walk and Adrian Gonzalez beat the Cardinals’ defensive shift with a perfectly placed bunt up the third base line for L.A.’s first hit. That brought up Kemp, who singled over Ellis at second base. Puig scored from second and Gonzalez moved from first to third. One out later, Juan Uribe’s fly ball to deep center easily brought in Gonzalez for a 2-0 lead.Los Angeles added four more runs in the fifth, with Andre Ethier’s three-run home run to right doing most of the damage. Gordon beat out a bunt to reach first base with one out, but was thrown out trying to steal by Molina. Puig followed with a hustle double, taking second base when Matt Holliday slid toward the left field line to field the sharply hit ball.Gonzalez then singled to left-center to score Puig for a 3-0 lead, and Kemp’s bloop hit over first base fell for a double, putting runners at second and third. Ethier then homered to right on a 1-0 change-up.“I didn’t need to contribute much with the way Kersh is pitching,” said Ethier. “Miller did a good job challenging the strike zone, but after the first time through, we saw what he was doing and made adjustments.“We got it going with a walk and a bunt from our three-hole hitter.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
