Been hunting quite a bit lately. There are a lot of acorns in the woods down in Ulster County, and the deer are really honing in on them. I saw a red fox chase a gray squirrel around; that was rather amusing. Also, saw my first “rutty” buck chasing some does pretty hard yesterday morning at dawn.

May the forest be with you,

Look familiar? Lucius releases Catskills music video

See video

The Catskills remain Brooklyn's primary source for American-Gothic-style atmospherics.

A new music video for "Hey Doreen" from the Brooklyn-based indie band Lucius features familiar sites along Route 28 in Delaware and Ulster counties, including the Phoenicia Diner, Margaretville Bowl, and Fleischmanns' Main Street. (It's not the Margaretville bowling alley's first time in a music video.) An alpaca, presumably a Catskills native, also makes a cameo. 

Keep an eye out for local faces, several of whom meet grisly ends at the hands of the murderous songtresses. Recognize somewhere or someone? Share it in the comments.
