RIP Chester from Linkin Park

Today I learned of Chester Bennington’s passing. I’d fallen out of fandom of Linkin Park as I grew up but when I was in high school albums like Meteora, Hybrid Theory and even Collision Course. Their depressing and lyrics complemented my teenage angst.

I remember excitedly playing the piano melody to “In the End” for everyone in class when it first came out. Whenever I had problems in life I would put on my headphones and blast songs like “Crawling” or “Numb”. These worked whether I was sad about relationships or my parents. It didn’t really matter. I related to the (somewhat suicidal in retrospect) lyrics. It probably gave me life.

It is sad to know that while Chester saved teens like me, he wasn’t able to save himself.

Saya @ The Drake 7/22/2017

I saw Spotify superstar Saya at The Drake on Thursday. Full review on Ride the Tempo! Shot the photos with my Fujifilm. I still use it just as much as my DSLR because it’s so handy if I’m out and about!

Backstreet Boys, Nick Jonas, Geoffroy @ Festival d’été

I totally shot Backstreet Boys and Nick Jonas over the weekend at Festival d’été. You can find the full gallery on Ride the Tempo, where you will see gems like this:

I’m in Quebec for Festival d’été

I’m currently in Quebec for Festival D’été. It’s all sorts of magical. I’m going to spend the day time exploring the city, so I’ll get back at you with more blog posts tomorrow.

For now, you can enjoy this video of P!nk flying over the crowd.
