…still not sure if I’ll post a pt. 2 – maybe I’ll just use *those* photos to blackmail those involved in the future, when they’re rich and important people.
But here are the daytime pics, which are pretty cute and not embarrassing!
If you live under a rock and you’ve never heard of Milhões de Festa – check it out right now
What do you get after an excessive four-day festival where you also happen to perform with the best people – other than massive exhaustion? A warm, fuzzy feeling of love, friendship and accomplishment.
Also, crappy pictures of your lovely friends ♥

Can’t wait for next year’s Milhões de Festa :(
Yesterday I finished an editorial that took quite a while because it involved all of these things:
Milhões de Festa
Estúdios Sá da Bandeira
Throes + The Shine
Sweet Ana from I love ME
And last, but definitely not least, Estefânia Silva aka Simba
So, following this article on POSI+TIVE and this one after the 2011 edition of Milhões de Festa, here comes this little bundle of love for the festival, published in CHASED).
Once again, I am confessing my undying love for the festival, and trying to spread some of that love around :’)
Here are the pictures that didn’t make the cut, but are still fun to look at ♥
Throes + The Shine, chillin’ during an intensive workout/concert
Glockenwise + Barcelos street market
ALTO! playing at the pool / Joca vaguely reminds me of a backwards chubby bubbles girl here
Blues Pills, lovely
So there was a stage invasion during Throes + The Shine
Now let’s all weep ’cause it will only happen again next July.
A couple of pictures of my baby and I, featuring me as the cosmic pale squid at the amazing Milhões de Festa pool, yay!
Credit for the pictures go to Raquel Silva, one of the curators of the Portuguese music zine/band archive Nervos that you should definitely check out.
It appears I have been slacking on my blog updatin’. Sorry about that.
From last Thursday to Sunday, the most anticipated event of 2012 happened – Milhões de Festa ♥♥
Pictures will be developed today, and eventually posted. I think I’ll let the MdF spam die down a little before I post them here or somewhere else. Maybe I’ll write something about it for some publication, I don’t know man. But it was pretty awesome. And so was my cosmic swimsuit, according to some people :’)
I also took pictures for an editorial on the backstage of the festival, I am dying to see how those turned out because it all happened so fast!! Before I knew it, my lovely model was being hassled by drunk metal heads who nearly ruined her badass leather boots!
Yesterday night was one of my baby’s bands last show/funeral, Botswana. Pictures will be developed today as well, and I will quietly sob while I upload them to the internets. It was pretty fun for a funeral though. It bums me out that they’re ending though. Boo.
Botswana looking smart as f*ck
So, if you want me to teach something to someone, like how to add rainbows to your facebook profile pictures on Photoshop, you can hire me and it will all be legal and stuff!
Also, the best festival in the world will happen in less than a week, and I don’t even know what to do with myself. I’m talking about Milhões de Festa, obviously.
Yesterday I was at the last Summer Flea Market, which sadly didn’t go as well as the other ones I was in previously, at least in my opinion. I took some pictures, but I’m not sure if they turned out alright because the photometer was out of batteries, I’ll have to wait and see!
I am working on an editorial with the fabulous Estefânia and Miss Ana Rito From I love ME! It’s been a while since I’ve done an editorial, so it’s always exciting to take on a new project with people that you’ve worked with and had great times with in the past :)
I am not sure when we’ll be over with it though, we’re going to shoot at three different locations at least. One of them is done, the next one will be kind of complex but I think it will be incredibly fun, and I’m not sure when we’ll shoot on the last one. I can only hope everything goes amazing!
I haven’t updated my blog in a bit, so here’s a picture of me eating an apple in Portland to make up for that:
Hope y’all have a wonderful Summer!
