Tumblr IRL is a music series we produce where we give a band a space and they get to do whatever they want with it, put their style all over it, fill it with whatever they’re interested in. Like a real-life Tumblr, see? Done these with Portugal. the Man, Chromeo, Childish Gambino, and a bunch of other bright young things like that.
London-based mystery aesthetes Jungle did the most recent one. Stuffed a ex-brewery in Brooklyn with photographs and GIFs from Oliver Hadley Pearch, including this hypnotic bit of rollerdancing. And even if you missed the show, you can still vicariously experience the sensation of being inside of Jungle’s Tumblr via this video that Complex Magazine shot.
I had asked Jolie a few days ago if I could fly with her, and she told me she had never taken a passenger up before but would think about it. When I arrived at the photo shoot, I told her that I mentioned to my mother that I might fly with her and that my mother did not like the idea one bit. Jolie laughed it off. Now, as I am watching her kick off her stilettos (she pilots barefoot) and step up onto the wing of her little white plane, she stops for a second and stares at me standing off to the side. There is a glint in her eye. A big smile spreads across her face. “Let’s go scare your mother,” she says.
Only as I am jammed in the back next to Leibovitz, bumping along the dinky little runway, does the reality of what I’m doing sink in. I imagine the headline: ANGELINA JOLIE AND ANNIE LEIBOVITZ DIE IN PLANE CRASH NEAR LAS VEGAS. I try to remember who went down with Patsy Cline, but I can’t. I am about to become a trivia question. I tell myself this will be a suitably fabulous way to die, and just like that we are in the air, floating above the desert, and my nerves are gone. “I’ll do some tight turns,” says Jolie. “Maddox likes it when there are g-forces.” [x]
