Saw These and Thought of You | July

Allan Lewis

Floating across a summer full of obligations: big feelings with old friends, days on decks, days in wrecks. Gas in, gas out. Even when I’m lost and battling 3-day hangovers, I can’t find you anywhere. You’re hiding: behind a book; behind a screen; behind a smile that says “I don’t think so.” Summer of 2016 is turning into something awful(ly special), and I feel like I’ve spent it by myself.

Saw These and Thought of You – June

Allan Lewis | Van der Saar
(Sorry this post was slow. I’m aware that we’re into August. Put this on tumblr but for whatever reason did not mount it here. Oh well.)

There was more colour in June, but not a ton of time for photos. A/B testing my life away, if you can believe that (I can’t). Still managed to sneak a few shots, as I always do. Really enjoying the little one taking a “Juice Box Whizz.”

The music’s missing from this project, but the motivation’s returning. Gosh there’s a lot on, don’t you ever find?

Halfway through the year project and I’m still thinking of you. Do you think we’ll ever meet and figure things out? One by one, perhaps we’ll try. Love you.

Saw These and Thought of You – May

Allan Lewis | Van der Saar

I’ll never be a businessman- riding a bike around this farm town. I know that for sure. The knot in my chest tightens even as my heart grows fonder, but of what or for whom I’m not sure. I wish there were somewhere else to go- not an escape, just a new place. Seems like that could be part of the problem.

There’s a wedding in town in a few weeks. Let’s put on something nice. Let’s get some drinks going and sing the old tunes; dance the old dances; make the old jokes; give the old looks. Let’s go back and be there, together, for a little bit. And pretend we aren’t here for the rest of it.

A Little Below The Line

Allan Lewis | A Little Below The Line

This past month I put together a photo zine from a road trip that I did at the end of February/start of March. It’s my first shot at this type of thing. Putting it together was tedious like recording can be, but the rewards feel similar.

Like the foreword says, there was no big reason to do the trip, or do the zine; it’s just something to do. Take photos, drink beer, hang out with a pal, see new things.

Anyways, there are a few copies kicking around. If you want one, let me know. If you can’t be bothered with that, the full set is on tumblr. Time to focus on recording for a little bit, now.

Saw These and Thought of You – April

Allan Lewis | Van der Saar

Tough month: bursting pipes, bursting hearts, things on fire and all sorts. Everything was going down, so there wasn’t a lot of time for photos or music. I made what could be made: a little set with light at its heart.

There’s more music on the way, it’s just about making time. It’s tough when the basketball’s going, though.

There’s a zine ready, too. We’ll talk about that in a few days.

I hope the spring is treating you well. Anything interesting happening on your end?

I wouldn’t stare without the option. And my best light’s not getting me through. There’s just no room. I don’t see room. And when I frame it like a problem. It’s my best light’s gone hiding from you. You just don’t see: I’m ready for anything.
