The shit designers used to use for headers and.. pretty titles and stuff.
just basically a transfer.
this awesome stuff was taken off the market for a while- and the art store i used to work in was a Mecca for this shit.
We had boxes and boxes and boxes of discontinued typefaces, that people used to come and rummage through. desperate to stock up before they were no longer.
now the shit has been a little bastardised- those fucking scrap book wenches have bashed the stuff in... writing shit like "lovely journey" beside a photo of their cat on a leash.
there is some pretty awesome stuff you can make with the stuff..
get on it.

One night, as some DJ's and revellers stepped out of their various gigs and put down there beers, a strange hunger took over them. The time? around 3am. their hunger? insatiable.
what better way to quell it than a late night asian fix?
Noodle Kingdom was discovered...
Noodle Kingdom has become somewhat of an institution, and now,
our love is forever preserved.
in t shirt form.
limited run of 4.
just because I could only afford 4 t shirts, and my table isnt big enough to fit anymore for printing.
WHAT A CRAFTERNOON!
although i will be slaving away at work.
im pretty sure you should go.
and you should probably take a case of these...
because im pretty sure that summer is all about good music, mates and west coast coolers. Innit?

I have Neglected you for too long now,
I have been busy with important and argeous tasks over the last few weeks, and I hope from now on I will be a better blogger, which means fun and attention for all...
now... onto the news.
I am fairly sure that I have turned into a retiree...
since finishing uni, I have been making chutney and tomato sauce. I have been building curtains and making brooches. I have been planting plants and reading shitty books about pepople who are unhappy in marraiges and have babies with down syndrome, books which im pretty sure are reserved for the 'over-40's'.....on top of that... I am going to Sydney on the weekend for 2 days for the purpose of seeing a musical.
50 is approaching fast on me, and I'm determined to embrace it. its fucking dope.
This is my first batch of chutney.
I have told pretty much everyone about this chutney, and i think its my finest work as yet.
i even made pretty labels and put my relatives names on them. yep. personalised condiments.
this is Basil #1.
he grew from a seed in a fish tank.
he loves the rain, sun and the smell of cinnamon.
he also likes it when I eat him.
these are my tomatoes who are being fuckheads and not getting red.
and its making me red.
this was todays project.
yes. instead of sitting at Black Cat drinking cider and talking shit, I decided to make more goods. Spicy tomato sauce.
OH OH oh! and like a true old person,
I dont actually GO shopping anymore.. I started hitting up eBay, and in the past week i have purchased about 4 cameras and 3 t shirts.
my favourite camera so far?
Chajka III Russian half frame camera
this this is so clunky, im pretty sure you could concuss a cow if you threw it.
its toooooo dope for words.
its a Half Frame camera from the Soviet Union, im still researching it.. but Im sure it was made around the early 70's.
and it takes fun photos of me having fun at the Spanish Festival.. (yes i do leave the house at times)..

this is Creative Review.
this is a pretty amazing blog/magazine that focues on... creative shit pretty much...
yeah... the bag dissolves in water.
that.. is awesome.
now i dont really want to think too hard about what toxins or whatever it may leak into water streams if people start using this technique for everything. but it pretty awesome.
no plastic for landfills.... awesome.
creative Review also showed me that Lomo have bought out a new Diana F + that is the coolest colours ever!
now i just need those AIAIAI CMYK headphones and ill be set for summer.
and whilst on the subject of summer and fun and cameras.
a certain someone bought me a present the other day!
WIDE ANGLE AND CLOSE UP for my (still very cool blue) Diana F+.
and it came in this awesome carry bag so people like me dont loose lenses in their bags.
thats todays wrap.

i have nothing relaly to write about.
And i gotta say. usually people who dont have anything really in mind to write about are usually boring as shit.
kinda like listeining to someone who is telling a story and then half way through they realise that their story is crap and has no fucking punchline and like 10 people are listening to them so they just end up saying.. "... and then i found $50..."
yep.thats this post.
i have a self-imposed ban on facebook for a week.. yep. i can do it. 3 days. and ive been more productive than ever,
I have ACTUALLY accomplished shit.
im considering leaving this facebook shit behind.
in the dust.
living and doing shit is even better than telling people your doing shit.
people who probably dont even really care in the first place.
.and actually getting stuff done is HEAPS better than reading about people bitching about how
'oh its monday and im so fucking sad i want to stab myself in the eye with a crochet hook"
cos. thats kinda boring and counter productive
check this shit.
THIS shit is productive.

this is one of my favourites of late that have actually made the title page of the news website..
US man stabs ex-girlfriend's pet fish
basically THIS guy...
A US man who attacked his ex-girlfriend and impaled her pet fish has been sentenced to two years probation, a psychological evaluation and community service.
Donald Earl Fite III, 27, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to animal abuse and domestic violence assault.
According to court records, Sarah Harris had broken up with Fite but returned to her Portland apartment July 25 to find him lying on her bed, saying he wanted to get back together.
When Harris tried to leave, Fite shoved her against a wall, grabbed her hair and tossed her against a bathtub.
Harris fled but returned with an officer to find her fish - a bright purple betta named "DeLorean" - on the wood floor with a knife through it.
this.. is what the fish would have looked like..
i was going to attempt an artists rendition on what it would have looked like.. but..
decided against it.
read the rest of the story here
"....Donald bought the fish for me, and I'm sure he knew how much I cared for it," she said.

Ive been thinking about blogging about this guy for some time now...... He came up in conversation over the weekend.. and I think its time..
My mate saw him speak at some design conference a few years back. Apparenty he didnt talk through the whole thing- he just sat there and flicked through some slides of his work and then some dude in a superhero costume ran around for a bit.
which, admittedly, is fairly cool and different than being talked at for an hour in some cases- comes off as a little arrogant...
anyway... Anthony Lister is a Painter.. he mainly paints kinda Lowbrow kinda stuff- mainly of characters and stuff... here take a peek.
his work is absoltely amazing, its so loose and free and beautiful.. in an ugly lowbrow kinda way. his use of space and white really makes his characters pop... but aside from all this wanker arty talk. Its really his background story that im super interested in..
Anthony was born in Mexico and grew up in Brisbane apparently. he went to art school up there. and aparently found himself a cheeky little coke attiction.
This guy.. seriously... he is what artists are MEANT to be!!
The Jackson Pollock. the Brett Whitley. who doesnt give a fuck and trashes shit and causes a fucking massive rukkus constantly, but everyone still worships him and puts up with it cos they love his work. and they secretly love him too.
even those uptight fucking suits who deal art and talk shit about wine.
they love this guy!
cos hes fucking nuts!
here is a brief list of the charges he had had against him in the space of 2001-2008:
"....several sexual harassment charges, grievous bodily harm, possession of class A drugs, drinking in public, urinating in public, willful damage, break and enter, assaulting a police officer and several parking tickets"
sounds like a good night out no?
he also has been kicked out of some night club in NY in 2007 cos he 'exposed himself to a bunch of bouncers at the place and groped the owners wife.
Apparently his dad was assasinated by a head of an infamous drug cartel around this time too..
pretty crazy though.
this is one guy I would love to meet before my time is up... or his?

compadre's of Workshop (barfly's) Drewfunk and DJ Honzo are gracing us with their presence
(on a professional level, of course) on Sunday the 4th of October.
The Ultimate Sunday session as i like to think of it combines pretty much all of my favourite things.
-friends ...(now see this is the part when YOU get involved)
With Drew painting live on our lovely rooftop balcony, and Mr DJ Honzo playing us some tunes to chill to.. it should be a pretty awesome day!
Last time it went smashingly (despite the rain).. so maybe you should just come and play?

I'm NOT a festival person.
i had my fun back in the day losing my shoes and my mind in various 'mosh pits' to Millencolin and Beastie Boys etc. but It seems im getting older and generally growing more bitter by the day towards massive events..
but this.. my friends... this festival was made for me.
you see.... Days Like This (although still have a fair cheesy name) was tailored to provide the music connoisseur with a pleasurable line up- with minimal fuckwit presence...
I went last year and had an absoloute blast up in old sydney town taking in Public Enemy, DJ Vadim, Atmosphere, Flying Lotus, Morcheeba, and many more all on one well layed out and civil venue.
this... this is the festival for people who actually want to listen to the music and not just take a million biccies and get laid in a bush behind the Bacardi Breezer tent.
and this is the good bit...
do it when?
see you there lovelies
