A Match Made in Heaven

Wowey Wow, We have been so fortunate to have such amazing people believe in us. @thehawkshow and @gustavecadet have both helped us take our musaks to the video level, and now our long time “Seafoam” designer has agreed to help us to make a series of new tee-shirts, as well as this amazing poster for our upcoming show at Cantab Lounge February 19th.

Jessica Frease is an extremely talented graphic designer and artist that has worked with a number of companies including Reebok, The Cartoon Network, and Trader Joes. If you’re a Lagoon fan you have certainly seen her work in the many, many faces of our beloved mascot Seafoam (click the pictures to see them):

For more of her work, and information about this incredible person, check out her site at www.hotfreshnow.com

We cannot express how excited and thankful we are to have such a talented person on board with us. Check out the sweetness of this poster (Iphone wallpaper, .pdf, and desktop wallpaper versions are available on our site at : Art Gallery )

LAGOON

I guess this is a perfect lead in to the next, and completely unexpected (haha), portion of this blog. Which is this week’s Featured Lagoon Model. Thank you again Jessica, for creating Seafoam, the lovable man-eating bone-shattering mascot of Lagoon.

Lagoon Featured Model: Kevin Sullivan

I think Kevin is the perfect featured model for this week. He looks quite warm in his beanie, and the fact that is something like 10 degrees out… well… it just works. Actually sometimes I don’t understand my own logic. This might be one of those times *sigh*. I love this first picture. It seems, like Chuck Norris, Kevin possesses the ability to kick a man’s soul.

Thank you Kevin! these photos are awesome! Best of luck to you in 2010

As usual, Thanks to Vanessa Athens @VanessaAthens for putting this together, and to Hansel Tsai for your photography skills.

Lagoon Update: News, Five Things That Should Never Exist IRL, Featured Model: Mariel Gomsrud

Normally I don’t like to write blogs with any sort of theme. Those of you who read this are used to my frenetic and completely random style of “mind dump” I usually force upon you. This blog will be no different. Ha. What… did you actually think I would change? I WONT CHANGE FOR YOU OK!?

BAND NEWS

We got some great news. The second song in our stream of new music has been sent in to our digital distributor. Should be a few weeks or so, then WHAMMO it will be up on itunes, Amazon, and all that jazz. I think most of you will be pleasantly surprised at the different direction this song takes from our first Episode (Heater Rabbit). This song, entitled “This Life Owes You Nothing,” will showcase more of a slower/melodic sound that Lagoon fans will recognize from our first album graduation (which is free for download on our site here).

Our 5th song on the album, “Straw Thief,” is just about done being recorded, and is headed to LA for some loving this week, then on to be mastered

GO GO GO.

Those of you who are waiting patiently… oh sooo patiently, in regards to the progress of the music video, we promise we will update you the second we know anything. Until then… Wait… and cry.  ahahahha kidding… that would be sad… But let me say this… It’s going to be sooner rather than later… Much sooner.

Five Things I am Happy Do Not Exist

I was watching Star Wars II – The Crap Wars last night in a semi-drunken stupor and I let my imagination roam. I really, for a moment, wished that I could have a light saber. I imagined the limitless applications for such a device: slicing ham, heating up a latte, opening a coconut, shaving, marble sculpting. However, I soon realized that most people, well EVERYONE without proper Jedi training would surely murder him or herself  in short order. So…I asked myself this… “What, besides lightsabers, am I extremely happy do not exist.”

5. Ceti Eels – From Ceti Alpha 5, or was it 6?

No one likes a mind controlling brain parasite, and I venture to believe that Ceti Eels from Star Trek II – Wrath of Khan are the worst. They burrow through your ear into your brain, and eat all the stemmy mushy goodness available, not before you perform any order your master bids you.

LAGOON

Anything good about them?

Yes, actually. Lets say you have an unruly younger sister and you want her to stop playing Jonas brothers and painting your dog’s toenails. You just hold her down, drop a worm in her ear and PRESTO, she takes all of you orders… until the worm matures and she dies. But until then…

If they did exist, how would I get rid of them?
For this section I will defer to a blog I found regarding the removal of mind controlling brain parasites:  Get rid of your mind controlling brain parasites

4. The Rabbit – From Monty Pythons Quest for the Holy Grail

I still believe that this is one of the funniest scenes in movie history; a tiny, cute, furry rabbit completely RAVAGES fully armed knights by decapitating them. Hilarious… but… would I want such a creature to actually exist? No.

LAGOON

Anything good about them?

I really cant think of anything. I am sure they would find some useful applications in the war against terror. But aside from that, they would completely screw up the food chain. Rabbits eating eagles? Ok… Ya… Exactly.

If they did exist, how would I get rid of them?

The easiest way to depart a man-eating rabbit is by the use of a Holy Hand Grenade. Some other treatments, such as modern poisons, only seem to anger the beasts.

3. “Syncing” -From Avatar

For those of you who haven’t seen the movie, I am going to spoil some things for you. Stop reading if you care.

There is something so intimate about pulling out your ponytail, exposing your wavy gross tentacles and connecting it to something else completely foreign. Wait… Intimate? I meant gross. The last thing I would want is my personal ideas being uploaded to the ‘Tree of Collective Thoughts’… Uh… I would be banned from the community almost instantly. I know what you are thinking and YES, apparently the lanky smurf creatures actually use “syncing” to have sex, but that scene was banned from the movie (Banned Avatar Scene article)

LAGOON

Anything good about it?

Sure. You control or a horse, or a gigantic bat thing. Great. Wow. I would rather have a car, and an airplane. At least a car doesn’t understand how I feel emotionally, and the whole community doesn’t realize that it was me who took a dump in his hammock the night before.

If they did exist how would we get rid of them?

Apparently you gotta blow up the big life tree thing. Get a crazy scarred up general to help you.

2. That Heart Ripping Dude from Indian Jones – Temple of Doom

When I first saw this I was a kid, and I had nightmares for weeks. Just the idea of a crazy shaman guy suspending you from a metal cage and tearing your heart out… There is nothing more creepy.

LAGOON

Anything good about it?

Actually, I could imagine some amazing applications in medicine. You can remove a heart with almost ZERO blood loss, perform surgery while it’s still beating and just… Well stick it back in. Other than that, it’s all fucking evil.

If they did exist how would we get rid of them?

Luckily Indy took care of this guy by throwing him off a bridge, but seeing as though he is mortal, I would assume a gunshot would work. You just have to get to him, past his thousands upon thousands of insane heart-hungry followers.

1. Mordor- In General

Mount Doom, Fire, Orcs, and the embodiment of everything evil. In a modern world it would certainly be a place where no one could visit, a breeding ground for brainwashed citizens, a factory for world ending weapons… Wait… This is starting to sound a lot like North Korea but with a gigantic glowing fire eye.. However, I bet Sauron, unlike Kim Jong Il, was not able to get 11 holes in one… Yes… They do claim that. Yes… I do have a link: Kim Jong Il gets 11 Aces

LAGOON

Anything good about it?

Actually, considering it is a constantly erupting volcano, you could probably create a supermassive geothermal power plant on mount doom. I know… it’s a stretch, but what else can come from a hellish desolate area like North Korea, I mean Mordor.

If it did exist, how would you destroy it?

First you need a few more things to actually exist (Hobbits, rings of power, etc…) but once you had those it could be done pretty easily with a helicopter.

Lagoon Update: Photos! Music Video Shoot and Featured Model: Clinton Brandel

Wow- this is has been an amazing couple of weeks. I don’t want to waste your time, wasting is bad, so lets get down to business shall we?

 

MUSIC VIDEO – Heater Rabbit!

Ok, so let me give you a brief story. @gustavecadet , a fabulous driven producer/director, found our band through glorious serendipity (meaning he saw one of David’s posters and loved it). We had a few meetings, shared some drinks and some laughs, and POOF! The concept for our first music video was born….

Gustave spent some time and planned it out. Got a space booked. Got the equipment needed. Got the crew he needed and the rest is history.

Lagoon was extremely impressed by the professional efficient manner of both Gustave and the film crew. They were incredible. The whole shoot stayed on schedule… from what I can gather is the first time that has ever happened in the history of humans making films, or even plays, so a really long time. Even back to ancient Roman times when people would get up and pontificate about life philosophy. I bet they would be late sometimes… more often than not… Togas are notoriously hard to tie, and you gotta make sure everything underneath is well “kempt.” You know what I mean *WINK*

Like most of the time, I’m a little hungover or perhaps still drunk. So instead of just rambling on tangents I will let the pictures of this shoot do the talking.

The first scenes are just the band rocking out. Give us some backlighting, some amazing makeup from our friend Nicole and WOW LAGOON LOOKS REALLY GOOD.

After that we have the pictures with all our extras (most of which were amazing fans of the band, fans from twitter, fans from facebook, fans from the moon and fans from the underworld). Everyone was extremely animated and… well… just perfect… It was you guys that made the video, seriously…

We love you. We cant wait to see it.

A very special thanks to @thehawkshow for streaming this entire thing live. I know from some of you who watched it, the content was really funny, and offered a cool glimpse into the whole project (all 12 hours of it) as well as into the life of The Hawk… which can be scary.

So…..

These pictures are just the selection of ones we thought were the best. Heidi did an INCREDIBLE job as photographer, seriously, these pictures are great. Many Many more (98 to be exact) of the photos are up on our facebook. Come take a look!
