A Tortoise fan

May 21, 2009 Video posted by Mike Rusczyk

Growing up in Chicago in the mid '90s was a good time to get into the sounds that were coming out of the Chicago label thrilljockey. My introduction to the sound that this label was perpetuating was the band Tortoise.

This video was brought to my attention by a good friend who had never heard the band and he sent me this clip. I like the perspective of the video as it's shot in the way that you would go about shooting photos. There is an obvious reference to this in the story line of the video as the subject carries around a camera shooting photos.

Watching this made me want to go out and shoot photos; it shows that there is richness in any environment around you.

I figured it was worth reposting.
