A Helicoprion is an extinct shark:

The raison d'etre of my old band, Sulene van der Walt, is in a new band named Helicopria.

I cannot describe to you why you really do need to check out their stuff.

...okay, actually I can.

There's a great tendency (I find) for young artists to have a serious case of all-talk-no-do. So many bands, so many actors, so many kids spend more time talking about what they are going to do, rather than doing what they talk about doing. I'm a culprit. So are you.

Helicopria is not.

From singing happy birthday to writing personalized 'fan songs' to touring in Turkey to having a name original enough to have the first twenty plus pages of hits on google - they're a busy bunch of sharks and they put in the effort that makes your effort to check 'em out absolutely miniscule. And worth it.

If you enjoyed it, share it. Put your effort in.

You need to get off facebook.

Facebook post of the day (oh the irony) is this depressingly good short film by The Sonny Side. Held my attention for the full 6 minutes... I didn't even open another tab while watching.

And I find the actor extremely compelling. May have had something to do with my attention span. And the way he licks his fingers.

Check it out:

Peace and thanks to Jonx Pillemer for the post.

Couldn't get any better than that combo.
