A Supposed Fun Blog (although they haven’t posted in a fortnight, so perhaps they have been defatigabled …)

Crystal Bae wrote a nice little entry about Infinite Summer on her blog, Aesthetics of Everywhere. Mike Miley discussed Infinite Summer on The Huffington Post. There was also an article in The Daily Texan.
