SHIT LIST

Everyone who loves me thinks that my ex is a jerk for all the grief he has brought in to my life. Sometimes I feel guilty for talking to him. Other than his divining rod for misery and simpering on YouTube there are some thing about him that I think are pretty awesome. Like this:

The New York Times also wrote quite nice article about his work that has quote from non other than Paul Peroni. The nice surprise at the bottom is that it talks about Superflex and the CopyShop in Denmark. Funnily enough, they are mates of mine too. You will have seen stuff on here before about them.

Today will be one of more sewing. I have a stack of African fabrics and vintage Vogue patterns and a kitten doing gnarly sofa surfing taking run ups and flipping over the back of the sofa like they are giant waves. Cowabunga dudes.

STERN LOOK


Stern Look, originally uploaded by Lektrogirl.

Went out last night and can’t work out why I had such a bad hangover this morning? If anyone can give me any clues, please let me know.

The Cardinal with her death babe looks as per usual looking amazing even in the ropiest of basement clubs. At first, we thought this was the bar:

I hadn’t been out in ages and saw quite a few people it was lovely to say hello to! I even got to catch up with the great Australian hero, Harry Butler

Admittedly he had lost the desert boots and khaki hot pants and acquired a more modern look and was looking great for his age, but he was still “the snake whisperer.” Even on the busy dance floor.

The was some DJ who played before Louise Enchante who was awesome. I dunno who he was – kind of regular looking – and his technical vibes were not great but his music selection was the first interesting set I heard in ages. Melodic chord progressions so beautiful. If we didn’t have the self imposed home time of 1am [which we already stretched to 2am] I probably would have wanted to stay longer.

Urgh but I did see that prick XXCENSOREDXX on the way out. He admitted to being responsible for writing all the anonymous shit comments on my blog a couple of Christmases ago that ended up hurting his so called friends my ex and his new girlfriend more that it did me. What a douchebag dickhead. And people wonder why I think he is such a jagoff. I got to give him credit though – he looks like he has lost some weight. His thighs were finally thinner than mine.

On more intellectual matters, there was a lot of talk last night about SLOW HOUSE. What a concept, playing records on a speed different to which they were manufactured! Who knew! I spoke to Louis Enchante and I was excited to hear that Paul B Davis was invited to spin at Top Nice forever now for “Slow Hour” – the final hour or so at Top Nice. Even though when Paul and I lived together it was tough times, some of the best times were Living Room Disco when playing records and messing about with music was priority. It was great trying out stuff together and hearing him mix things and offering him records to try ideas out with and seeing what he would combine with it or I would be playing some Library music bizzo and he would pull out Robert Armarni Circus Bells. Top Nice “Slow Hour” is going to be awesome. I just hope Paul cracks out the Melodica once in a while. [Shit I haven't said so much nice stuff about Paul in one paragraph in a long time!! It must be because he is normal and funny again after breaking up with his girlfriend.]

Anyway – it wouldn’t be a good day without another picture of Hobart for everyone’s perusal.

In the cab home last night The Cardinal really let me know how much she hates the cat’s name. “Oh…. it is so unfeminine and doesn’t suit her. It is just too masculine and you really have to change it.” I threatened to change her name to Turps. Cards said in that case I should leave it at Hobart. How could she say these things about my little cobber Hobart? I thought she was a boy…

WEB SLUGS

Here is a reproduction of a webpage that I made some years ago about how to eradicate slugs featuring Paul B. Davis.

SLUGS – rid your garden of these foul pests!


check the newly transplanted herb garden, featuring mint and bay leaves.


but shit, we got a problem. it seems we aren’t the only ones enjoying nature. someone UNINVITED is eating the sweet leaves through the night.


okay players, education certainly is the key and this cracker is here to show you what to do with some about the house ingredients.


all you need is a bottle of stale flat beer. any brand will do but we have chosen one that is the favourite of lazy fat lay-abouts.
then fill a bowl with this beer and leave it in the garden a small distace from the ravaged plants.


THE NEXT DAY. the little fuckers had their last party and drunk themselves to a grim death.


CHECK IT OUT CHICKY BABES!! [tm] – daisy d


the head count after just 12 hours is roughly 21 slugs and two snails. you can leave the beer a little longer but be warned too long and it turns to a stinky rotten pool of yuck.


and so back to enjoying the garden like a hero with a fresh bottle of beer.

Anyway – this photo series is a set form better days when we would have jolly japes and do things like kill slugs.

More fucking rain.
But check out the video piece that Paul B Davis and Jacob Ciocci from Paperrad made that I was going on about a few posts ago.
