Thursday: Chiptune show in Brooklyn

Dear Internet,

Do you remember when I tried to record a year’s worth of covers with the month name in them? Well, this year I decided to try again and actually finish this time. Considering that I only did two last time -and only posted the recording of one- I haven’t set the bar very high. Can y’all make sure I at least make it through March this time?

Anyway, here’s January. I chose Black Dove (January) by Tori Amos, as it’s a favorite from my days as a misanthropic teenager. None of this is mixed well, or mastered, so you’ll have to wait for a final mastered version at the end of the year when I finish.

As a bonus, here’s a short clip of my mouth tracking some of these vocals:

A video posted by Star St.Germain (@thisisstar) on

Here are lyrics:

She was a January girl
She never let on how insane it was
in that tiny kinda scary house
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods

black-dove, black-dove
you’re not a helicopter
you’re not a cop-out either, honey
black-dove, black-dove
you don’t need a space ship
they don’t know you’ve already lived
on the other side of the galaxy
the other side of the galaxy
the other side of the galaxy

she had a January world
so many storms not right somehow
how a lion becomes a mouse
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods

but I have to get to TEXAS
said I have to get to TEXAS
and I’ll give away my blue, blue dress
my blue dress

black-dove, black-dove
you’re not a helicopter
you’re not a cop-out either, honey
black-dove, black-dove
you don’t need a space ship
they don’t know you’ve already lived
on the other side of the galaxy
the other side of
the other side of the galaxy

but I have to get to TEXAS
said I have to get to TEXAS
and I’ll give away my blue dress
because cowboy
the snakes they are my kin
are my kin

she had a January girl
she never let on how insane it was
in that tiny kinda scary house
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
black-dove

CA hero 1 Computer Arts Feature: My Style via ThisIsStar.com

I’m in this month’s issue of Computer Arts magazine! Many thanks to them for featuring me in their My Style Is… column. I was asked to submit three items that I’m digging.

I chose:

feature Computer Arts Feature: My Style via ThisIsStar.com
CA hero 3 Computer Arts Feature: My Style via ThisIsStar.com
CA hero 2 Computer Arts Feature: My Style via ThisIsStar.com

I was also super stoked about the color changing front cover! All the agency names on the front turned purple in the sunlight, and they had a rad gloss UV effect on top.

Special thanks to Nadya Lev who shot the amazing photo for this feature. As a bonus, here’s another shot from that set. Hair was done by Lauren Rynders, with makeup by Carolina Espinosa.

Thanks Computer Arts for featuring my style! You can order a print copy here, or a pdf in the App Store.

Emily has her own clothing line based out of Brooklyn, and needed new branding for her unique style. I know Emily from our time together in the Studio for Interrelated Media, where we learned about doing All The Things. Back in those days, Emily mostly made super cute videos, but now she makes super cute dresses instead! Want one for yourself? Pay her a visit here!
