I guess I have been on this folk music kick for a while now. I can't stop listening to the Magnolia Elec. Co album What Comes After The Blues.
For Christmas this year I am House sitting for my Cordell & Lenka. Maurice is my companion. He is a black lab. We go on adventures down the street and kick the tennis ball around. He listens very well. he will stop at corners and wait until you say to go. He never takes his eyes of the ball, or any other chewy toy, or object that can be thrown.
Colby Seegmiller spent most of his week with me. It has been a long time since that boy and I spent good time together. I think he has found a girl.
That conversation of the digital commercial photographers that I decided to join last week really threw off my thought on how people felt about digital.
I think people rush things to much. This "high-speed" always connected life is really throwing off the balance of my life. Just like if you spin to much. I am about to tip over.
PS. Fuck everyone who sends text messages to me on Christmas. I have to pay that bill. Send me a card or something real. I am not going to keep your digital file on my phone like i would keep a fibrous paper with ink and love.
If I could I would send you a punch-in-the-jaw through the phone. Predictive text that.
This is the time of year where I think about all the people that have come into my life in the last year. and those that are repeat offenders of my friendship. All of the girls I seem to fall in love with and then just fall out. Strangers from out of state, or people that are local when I am out of state. Random people that emotionally connect with me by a head not or a paused look where our eyes connect. People from college that I feel a bond to, some form of a connection. The musicians that are my friends. I believe that the majority of these people are part of something big.
I cant explain it. but i love you all.
He was stressed. He is like my twin.
I was his lunchtime muse
Here is a close to perfect summer concert run down. i quit keeping track after a while.
Kilby Court: June 15, 2006 THE SOUND THE HARE HEARD TOUR Southerly, Thao Nguyen & Simone White
with Glade Soward
All the bands that played are on the Kill Rock Stars The Sound The Hare Heard comp. (not including Glade)
Kilby Court is a very small venue (Concidering it is a garage-gone-concert venue), But it is a "huge" venue in the sense that bands that were once small and then grew to be large (i.e. Death Cab For Cutie) and then other bands that are local become huge local because of Kilby Court.
Kilby Court Man Man, Dane & the Death Machine
Dane & the Death Machine (DDM) are amazing. and they are even better live and as a full band. I am glad that they are my friends.
Between sets I walked around the fire pit in the kilby yard and went to talk to Lenny, he is a photographer (as well as I) for the Daily Utah Chronicle, and he formentioned the touring band MAN MAN, so I stayed for what I call the birth of a revolution.
Man Man are a "Philly" local band, and they play a orchestra of instruments by five guys that seem to have put together masterpeices of music.
They have started a revolution in my head.
What is small is not always small. Kilby was once, but it isn't currently. The same thing can happen to these bands like so many others and so many more to come.
Kilby Court is great. So one part is a garage gone venue with a little fire area outside and a separate room just for merch. I remember once that the separate building that has the restrooms and Leia Bell's printing studio was used for a venue area also : the art room.
Rogue Wave is the only band that I have seen that used the fire area for a small acoustic encore and birthday serenade. It really made the night for me. I love seeing new things at old hang outs.
I love July at kilby because of all the good shows and the nice weather along with the good company
This is the second time I have seen Jonah at Kilby, last year was a big turning point in my life and Jonah's music, from whichever band he is doing at the moment, has always been there for me. Joey Nix and Drew Tomac accompanied me to the show, Joey and Drew's favorite works of Jonah are New End Original's (NEO) Thriller and Gratitude's s/t.
Jonah is on a trip being the single member of his tour, traveling to places that he loves, playing the music we love from every band he has been in and new songs and any requests the crowd throws out (even to play at a wedding at a future date). I requested that he play Hostage from NEO's Thriller, and i wish i would have requested 14-41 because I love the song and its insanely good lyrics.
There is just something about Jonah's shows that you cannot recreate in any situation (unless you buy the CD/DVD) but you would have had to be at the show to recreate it, and Kilby isn't on this one.
There is so much that i can only think about Jonah, it is hard to get them out into words. All i can say is that i love his work, all of it, and I love talking to him when he is in town and cant wait to do it again in time
look for Jonah's CDs and give them a listen/
One Line Drawing (OLD)
New End Original (NEO)
(I think I saw him in that Fort Minor video, and i forgot to ask)
click the image below to go to the merch shop
Jonah also sells CDs from musicians that he likes. So check out The Annuals or Band of Annuals.
and if he ever gets any of Glade's work check that out.

Tilly and the Wall
Now it's overhead
Seve VS Evan
So i have never been so happy to just stand outside of Kilby Court and dance. Erica aka Stabby Von Killerstein, Corbin (my little bro [almost 12]) are all just chilling outside the doors because we arrived a little behind schedule, but once we arrived we knew that our bodies were going to be doused in sweat by the end of the night.
Seve vs Evan are a local Synth Keys & Percussion with a large following. These two boys make little red riding hood better then ever before with their version called Little Red and Wolfie B. When they play the crowd knows what hand movements and body wiggles to do and the shout and hollar at anything that makes them wiggle and groove
Now it's Overhead is a Saddle Creek Records band that i do not feel get enough recognition or play compared to many of the other bands on the label. I fell in love with them when i was sitting in my friends living room watching a Paste Magazine DVD and right after watching the music video for Azure Ray I noticed that there was a Now it's Overhead music video. I put it on and just listened in amazement. The same thing happened at the show, I just sat there in amazement.
Sometime before Tilly and the Wall set up i ran in to a friend from my first year at the U of U, Kelsey Stark, a good looking brunette from Park City that I got to know pretty well in the first few weeks of school and then we sorta separated and went out own ways for a while. But i sat and talked to her for 20 mins and i felt relieved that i could even do that after what had happened last year.
As always Tilly and the Wall does what they can to make the show as hot as they can while making everyone move on the dance floor. I have only missed a few performances by T&tW when they were much smaller in the way of crowds. While I was working at M-E Style with Miriam Tanner I made the comment "You don't know who Tilly and the Wall is?!" although i at the time didn't really recognize who they were i knew a bit about them. I became a running joke and now i try never to miss a show.
You can meet some of the most beautiful girls while at this show. I met a girl named Angela Renee a friend of Stabby, neither Stabby or Angela could stay at the sold out before we could get in show, but corbin and i waited it out just to get in or we would have spent the night dancing outside to the tunes coming through the wall
I await another night that everyone can be wild like children
Panic! at the Disco
the Dresden Dolls
the Hush Sound
Monday July 24
In The Venue / Bricks
I dont even know why I showered. Once I walked in my body began to pour with sweat. I arrived to late for the opening band, the Hush Sound, but it seems that show had started before doors had been scheduled. I was going to meet Chase and Ally somewhere inside. Ally had called me and over the loud crowd i heard something like "we .. in the front... ." So I swam my way thru the sweat oozing pre-pubecent youth and various others before the Dresden Dolls began their set.
Now I am stuck in the middle of the lake of youth and salty water, the sun was still beating down on everyone, In The Venue has a roof that is detachable, so here i am in the middle of all this sweat and youth and the band isnt even playing. the crowd sways and rolls like waves on a sea , a sea of salty youth.
Pete Yorn is a Vampire
"the You and Me" tour
Thursday July 27th
In The Venue / Bricks
If you don't know Pete Yorn you probably wont notice his music, but even many people I know that know Yorn cant really hum a few bars of his music to even help. But that all changed in my head when he came and played the corner stage at Bricks.
I had been listening to 101.9 The End all week trying to win tickets to the show and the exclusive Live End Zone recording at the radio station. All atempts to win were utter failures until the day of the concert while I was driving to work I called in and the phone rang, and it rang ... And then an answer! "You are caller number 3" says Biff Raff of the End. Oh well I was so excited but i was three off. Then i look over at Garland, my uncle, and he is on the phone too. "Hi, This is Garland Ledbetter, yeah sure i will hold." the bastard won. Well great.
But it all turned back for the better, I was trying to win the tickets, but not for myself but for Ally Gregory, she asked me a few weeks before and i told her i had no money, which is true to this day, but my uncle offered to buy me tickets so that Ally and I could go to dinner and to the show with he and my aunt Brandy.
While seeing Pete Yorn was on the list of cool things to do on a Thursday night i was even more excited to see 2 pairs of hands in the front waving and swirling around and dancing like the bodily counterparts. It was the pair of Angela's that danced with me and Stabby at Kilby, when together we call them Angela^2 (Squared). From where I was I could watch them dance and then i looked to the mirrored wall and i could see the beauty of the sheer excitement of the two girl that love the music of Pete and were happy to have gotten on the guest list from running in to the band at a in store show at the Bountiful GrayWhale CD store.
I cannot wait the release of Pete's new album Night Crawler which was recorded mostly the afternoon evening and night hours about the people that are around in the night and evening.
I am one of those people, i am a night crawler.
A Magical Evening
Harry and the potters
Draco and the malfoys

A choice well made
Wednesday August 16 Kilby Court
So although these pictures are from last year they show what i was watching although James Glines has much longer hair now.
This is the first time i have seen Jessica Something Jewish since last year. Both time the shows have been very interesting. Last year the show was
. This year ever band was very electronic which made for a very dancy night.
When I arrived Trevor Hadley (Band of Annuals, The Lionelle, Alpha Brown) Matt ((I think) from Airliner), Tate (the Lionelle) and James Glines (JSJ).
It was a small show, family members of OK Ikumi and JSJ came to watch as well as many friends of the bands, Severin (Seve vs Evan) came to watch . Seve tried to talk a beautiful girl in to painting a picture of him riding side saddle naked on a dolphin. I have never laughed so hard at random conversation.
After the show I was riding UTA Trax and looking at the insert as I noticed in the thank you section that James had thanked me which is a honor in all rights. This is the second honor bestowed upon me from James, since last year he has used my picture on his website and while he was on tour in Australia my photo(below) was used by the press for many of their releases for show flyers.
I had the chance to go to the Mars Volta and Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Delta Center and I felt the need to not go because what is more important your friends or people you haven't even met yet.
"So lets Dance! Dance! Dance dance!"

If I didn't make it home before midnight, I would turn into a pumpkin.
Luckily I made it back in time.
The fight scenes in the movie were great. Times have changed so much since the first Rocky. It was great.
But why is he always fighting the black man.
I decided that I would ruin movies like Balboa if I was in charge of it. I would have had him punch a few characters but it would have been a - pause- awkward- PUNCH- like those quick things that family guy does.
Laura Rowlett said that she has been waiting for a movie about black men in speedo's. "Pride" looks really good.
I am sitting at the Coffee Garden @ 9th & 9th.
and this is what a group of artist next to me are saying:
"[pinholecameras] 30 pictures with no content.... I would rather look at pictures of your naked girlfriend... which there seems to be less of..."

The reason I borrowed it was for a shoot I am doing with Utah Rhythm and Dance. URAD wants new pictures for their website and last year I had shot some pictures for the Daily Utah Chronicle.
This will be my first paid shoot since i quit going to the UDC, I left because shooting for the paper is not my favorite way to go take pictures. I like to experiment with digital and you cant really do that on a timely news worthy picture.
so I found the slow shutter speed setting because the pictures are different. and here is what we have done.
Thayne (left)[image 1] said he would pay me to do a shoot with our friend Nora, who I have always though would be fun to do a series of photos, but that shall wait til January.
PS. Chase Wilxcore and S.Chris Vincent went to see "Fur : an imaginary portrait of Diane Arbus" and it was quite a good film. Her pictures were introduced to me from my friend and colleague Ashley Hutchins. She and are going to be the photographers for Chad V Bailey and Jonna McNeil's Wedding in February
Have a good look. tell me what you think

"Chase just pass those fuckers, why the hell are they going so slow? The roads aren't that bad."
"OK" says Chase
Chase speeds up exits the HOV (carpool) Lane and we hear this noise.
"Chase what the hell is that noise!?"
"I don't know" He looks at his dashboard and sees that we are red lining. "Fuck"
Then the car starts fish tailing
"Fucking hell!" said Chase " There go the adventures of Colin and Chase"
We start spinning across traffic toward the out side retaining wall
"Well I guess the roads are that bad" I said
"This is going to be bad."
"No its not"
We crash into the retaining wall now facing oncoming traffic
"see we are fine"
Luckily there was a ton of snow on the wall or we would have destroyed chases side of the car.
we sat there for a bit
"OK chase just put it in park and lets sit here a while."
"hahaha" We laughed a bit.
Then we turned the car around on the freeway and drove the rest of the way to Salt Lake.
"I just wish we could have kept spinning forever" I said
"Yeah all the way to Ben's and up the hill."
But we are safe. And we are so better than Tokyo Drift

December 11th 2006 is a night that showed Colby Seegmiller and I that we are part of something huge. There are a group of local musicians that are writing a history of the Alt-Country / Folk scene. There is just something about the musician in Utah that gets my emotions going and I look back and smile uncontrollably. The night almost left me in tears of joy.
Colby and I are just glad to know that we are friends with this collection of amazing people.
but then again I have always been grateful of every thing I have been a part of because I understand and acknowledge the people that are going somewhere. And I myself hope to join them in the long list of names.
(to be named at a later time)

I call it "I wish everything wasn't due on the same date"
I have a 1000 word paper due, also 4 papers and their drafts in a portfolio.
I have a Kapital 5 test in Deutch'
I have a 3 photographs in a series mounted but I still need to shoot the pictures and develop the film and all.
I did a polarization of Fiona Apple and a print of Fiona Apple from when she played at the Huntsman Center on the U of U campus.
I am way excited for the next year
Monday, December 04, 2006
I am closer to what I want to do and I am almost completely done with my general.
I am (at the moment) a pre art major. But I am going to be a Photography major, i just have to work though this first year studio. The studio year is a Pre-Req but i made it around it at the moment. I am taking Photo studio II, Art History, and German 1020. And if every thing works out I will be going to Kiel, Germany for a while in the summer.
During the Christmas break I will be house sitting for my father and step-mother (but I hate the word step) while they go visit her unhealthy father in the Czech Republic.
I also found a cheap place at the 851 Riviera. More or less all of my friends have lived her at one point.
I have also met a new girl. I know it seems like I say this every week. (or every day if you are around me enough) But I think that she might be interested in me, most of the girls this semester seemed to have other things on their mind.
It is 19 degrees outside and I don't think it is going to get over 30 today.
Oh... and for Christmas I want every camera off of lomography.
I read Bukowski's Factotum and gave it to Steve to read. He is liking it. Austin is having a kid in a month. Holy shit, and Steve split with Allison so I don't know how much I will see K-ris. Joey finished the color in his tat. it looks great. and yesterday was Mike Wallace's 20th Birthday one he never saw.
lets end on a good note. I have a new long board that i am going to be working on over the break it was my biggest birthday gift. and it is going to be great to ride. it is 4.5 feet or so.
And I am drawing my tattoo idea. so once I leave the country or when I cant donate blood for a while I will get them

I have chosen a path in which I can spell kick-ass.
Colin Roe Ledbetter (thats me) is now a Photography Major at the University of Utah.
I give it a year and a half till I am stable in finances, and hopefully before 201o I graduate.
check out these cool new photos

In my latest trip to this fountain of knowledge I found my girlfriend from forth grade and my girlfriend from sixth grade. What a shock to hear one is having a kid within a month, and the other has cleaned up her life from former gangster-hood
So much more is happening in the universe of "the Crew" : Colin Roe Ledbetter, Michael John Wallace, Steven Spencer Taylor, Austin Charles Stokes, and Danny High.
The thought that I am the only one that is not/ has not produced a child is an odd thought seeing that I am the one that come from the having a child too young section of the world.
take that in and think about it...
fucking hell... you know what that means...
you can call me "Godfather Ledbetter"

literature and life have come full circle.
For the first time in my life i have found where literature fits in. Tim Kasher (cursive, the good life) from what I read is into Fante, Bukowksi, and Dostoevsky. He mentions their works in his works. After reading that he liked these authors I felt compelled to find the books that he has read to better understand the music. As I was searching for some Bukowski I recognized that the movie Factotum was at the Broadway Cinema Centre. At once I felt the need to go see it. I asked Sarah Ann Martin that is very literate if she would like to meet me for a little Bukowski and she agreed we should.
The movie and time we spent together was quite memorable. She is a very beautiful art student that made the Band of Annuals v-neck shirts-- which possibly is my favorite shirt. After we went to coffee at the Salt Lake Roasting Co., a two level coffee shop that is not the most scene coffee shop in town but it is one of the most comfortable, and we sat there for a few hours and chatted about various things like most people do.
that night I went to sleep at Ally's but my body thought to do the contrary. I was awake all night. It wasn't a comfortable awake, my body was tired but my mind was on over drive. I lied down five times just trying to force myself to sleep but opted to go into the other room and read the Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky (the picture above) . This book is amazing. I think i might now take Russian and maybe minor in it.
I never fell asleep I just seemed to loose consciousness for ten minutes in the morning before i dressed and got an early start for school.
Gallery Stroll was planed for that night; The rain wasn't. I had gone home and changed after school, grabbed an umbrella and hopped a trax train to downtown SLC. The gloom was everywhere. The gray sky set the mood for the night. I felt stuck, singled out. I walked down dark, wet streets. I still had the Bros. K in my pocket so that when i found a dry place to sit that i could begin reading if there was nothing else to do.
I walked for 4 hours, in the rain and dark. Yeah i was looking at art but i still had so much on my mind from the night before. That girl had set something off inside me. I felt the need to return to the last place we were to maybe recollect my thoughts.
Back down the rain swept street. The lights of street lamps reflected green, yellow, red. I had $1.12 in my pocket from the night before. That was 2 cents more than i needed to get a cup of coffee. I sat down. I felt something wet hit my face. The rain! I hadn't escaped it. So I shifted to the other side of the table. This is how I met Oake. Oake is a man with quite a resemblance to Dostoevsky. We sat in the chair and discussed our separate lives and the similarities between he and I; how he had found the first person he could remember he felt he could live with forever.
[to my self i said i could spend forever with that girl. She is smart, artistic, well versed in books.] But how could i tell i had only spent a movie and a tea/ 2 coffees with this girl.
at this point we getting into some very depressing subjects. I think that happens quite often in conversation. You seem to flow toward the bad side of the river of knowledge and dwell there in the slower thought water.
hark!.... Behind Oake i see something that i have needed to see all day. It was her. It was she... Oake sees my face and decides to take a smoke break in the rain while i go and speak to her. But in the end i feel it fruitless because now i see her and she doesn't look the same at me as she did before. I must have been to excited.
The end of the night comes and i wish Oake a safe trip home. We part. I wish her a safe trip home and that i see her soon, hug her. We part.
I didn't sleep again.
I have now experienced a book, a movie, a music performance of both book and movie is a sense. And lived out my own book and read from the book of knowledge of an older man.
Things are coming more into place for me. Yes they are....

The SLC Library is one of my favorite buildings in Salt Lake. Night or Day.
Today I am going to get a library card. The first couple books I plan to read are authors mentioned in music by Tim Kasher (Cursive, The Good Life)
I quite love when music and books go together and even more so when movies then are included.
My latest CD/book/movie have to do with Franz Kafka. The CD is Gregor Samsa 55:12, an art rock group, named after one of Kafka's characters. The book is The metamorphosis, about a salesman who wakes one day to be a giant bug. It quite ruins his world. The movie is Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale, which mentions Kafka very frequently, and a part mentioning being Kafkaesque makes me giggle like a little girl.
Speaking of little girls, the movie was recommended by one, Emma Cooper, who took this picture of me in the library with the camera. Clue is solved.

I have had the camera coming on a year and I have never really liked the 50mm lens that had been on it since Stu bought it, because of the lens I have only taken two rolls of film with in in a year. Recently I have been looking for different lenses and different types of film and filters and formats of cameras.
But before the second roll of film could even be developed the shutter broke and I have to buy a "new" camera. I will keep the 50mm lens, but I am buying the wide angle lens attachment.
So that is the life of the om10 quartz.
While this news is all sad and what not, Emma Cooper and I ran around Salt Lake City and took pictures on the library and in a ivy covered area that we found. I will get some of those up here soon.
Now begins the life of my OM2s-program and the fish eye lens
I am going to try and use the film I had in the other camera to shoot and test this new camera.. So in a day or so i will have those.

I could have seen Elliott Smith once, but I was celebrating the birth of my close friend Ashley Hutchins. It was his last show ever, although it was not the last I heard of him. Elliott Smith is one of my favorite musicians for two reasons: 1- His music has mad the last 2 years of my life interesting. For weeks i would have his music playing on my father's stereo while I was house sitting. I like to listen to it in the August rainstorms. 2- two of my favorite movies include his music at the point of depression or of odd happiness, and to this day when ever I here his voice i cry. That is just the power he has. The movies are American Beauty and The Royal Tenenbaums
I wish i could have been at that show sometimes

2003- Colin Roe Ledbetter goes vegetarian and begins his Junior year in High School @ Tooele High. This was partially inspired by Colin's Girlfriend at the time Carrie Ann Mallon
2004- Senior year in high school, Colin joins a sports team for the first time in H.S. and as it turns out he should have joined his freshman year. Cross Country was the only sport Colin liked in H.S. because he is the only one he is racing for, although they are a team, it is more about the individual. (one reason he loved to Mountain bike) Many thanks go to the 2 girls that inspired him to join the summer and school year before. Erin Christiansen and Abree Mattinson
2005- Colin Roe Ledbetter is asked to house sit for his father and partner, Cordell Taylor & Lenka Konopasek, for a month while watching Maurice(black lab) and Spot(manx tabby) in the neighborhood of 9th & 9th in Salt Lake City while his father and spouse go to the Czech Republic. Because of the wonderful influence of one Katie Patterson bringing Colin Back to the root of the idea of why he started with vegetarianism, Colin becomes a Vegan. The latter week in August, Colin begins his Freshman year at the University of Utah.
2006- A Year has now passed. I have been thinking of all the amazing things that happened in the last year and in just last August. All the amazing people that I met in a span of a year and how I am ready to met dozens more and learn more about how people are and what inspires them.

I am also a Photographer and a lover for the music industry. Tom Ford is great and David Lachapelle has an amazing talent.
Tom Ford (in Vanity Fair where I found him)

I hope one day to be in the same place in others that these men are in my mind.

So I am having Erica (Stabby) make me some wonderful Vans Shoes that are custom made. Damn this girl has a talent for making shoes look better. You should check out her work and you should also try to get some.
She went off of some images that I found and somethings that make me think about RADIOHEAD
I will pay well over a hundred dollars for these shoes because I believe that she is asking for $80

(I would like to say that many ships come into port. but only the right ship can stay in port. there might be your first mate, or even soulmate on this ship. But these mates might be pirates also and steal your heart.)
So keep watch of your booty, you might just find an island in which you ship can dock and keep docked for life instead of burying your booty on different uncharted islands.
I am glad that our ship has been sailing for a long time. we have many in our crew: co-captains every one of us.

Steven Taylor said
A friendship is nothing more than a connection with a person that involves you both on the same ride.
When the friendship ends, that ride is over. Like a good vacation, you wont forget, and you have the pictures to remind you.
You wish that you can go on that trip again, but even if you did it would be completely different, even if it was the same.
So lets take down our sails, and go our separate ways.
I wont ever forget you, and I will always love you
But our ship is torn, battered, and sinking fast.
I tried to repair it, tried to mend the wounds that seemed to be filling you up
But you wouldnt accept any help, to stubborn to accept my offering for supplies
So now you are on your own, and I hope the winds blow you to bay
But I cant stay on this ride any longer, and I see this ship sinking fast.
Maybe one day you we can sail again....I really hope so....and I will always love you.
I guess im off..."
