This is a total VHS girl crush collab between Caitlin Denny(director) and myself(concept & music). The song is about reclaiming a moment you lost. Whether someone took that moment in time from you, or that time has so muddled the memory that you have to reinvent it. We were heavily inspired by Daisies/ 70s & 80s feminist video & performance art (Pipilotti Rist!) and wanted to incorporate surreal Liquid Sky-ish effects. Overall, a mystery for the ladies!

Got a Girl Crush On: The women’s cycling team of Afghanistan
Despite the cultural taboo of females on bicycles, there is an Afghan Women’s National Cycling Team in Kabul. These women who challenge their country’s gender expectations by riding are the subjects of an upcoming film called Afghan Cycles (Let Media). Earlier this year, co-directors Sarah Menzies and Whitney Connor Clapper travelled with Mountain2MountainExecutive Director Shannon Galpin to Afghanistan with a stash of cameras and more than 350 pounds of bike gear. The goal was to document these amazing, courageous women, but also to provide support for what is hopefully a growing movement.
