this is a pretty amazing blog/magazine that focues on... creative shit pretty much...
yeah... the bag dissolves in water.

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!

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?
