I was in Hobart, Tasmania recently and was overwhelmed
by all the beautiful flowers growing in this part of Australia.
They must still get rain down there...

such beautiful colours!

A sunny sunday afternoon stroll around Watson's Bay. I like that you can see the reflections of both the Lighthouse and my camera in my sunnies. it's like a cubist photograph.

downtown osaka...

today we (victoria and i) braved the big wide world of osaka. people really love to shop in japan! they are just constantly consuming - every second store is retail and the spaces in between are restaurants. so much food for such thin people! and its extremely cheap food too. and the cool air conditioned shops are really attractive when the alternative is searing heat on the streets.

There are loads of fun alleyways around the place and pretty lanterns everywhere. everything is totally artificial of course, nothing is real or genuine, but this is a completely post modern city we are talking about here! baudrillard eat your heart out! simulation abounds in this place - although as baudrillard argues, the copy has no original - so this authentic traditional japanese aesthetic is as real as its going to get!

Shinsaibashi is totally insane and like a suburb that is totally inside, but not underground...its hard to explain - its hectic!

This is probably the coolest/saddest thing i saw all day - a japanese pet store. there are so many bonsai pets in tiny cages - i have never seen so many pets, even at a pound back home. they are all so tiny and so sad. please love me they say, take me home!!

what a weird and wonderful place...

this is GRAPE tea!!

its so hot outside (35 degrees) and my hotel room is so airconditioned...

so this is my new favourite drink - Grape tea!

Its sweet like grape but tart like ice tea. perfect.

lost in translation

this is me in my hotel room in osaka. i finally made it here on what felt like an eternity of cramped travel despite the extreme speed at which i was hurtling through space.
i will sleep well tonight!
hopefully i will be able to post some far more exciting holiday snaps once i have the energy tomorrow!

the original emo kid

I saw the cure last night. pretty special really. robert smith is an adorable old love cat. Boys don't cry but i thought he might. and he stood close to me so i took many pictures with my crappy digital camera. the zoom is useless but it didnt matter! It was friday, and i'm in love.

"We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It's the grooviest thing
It's the perfect dream"

sorry nams

I found out today that my specially created, lovingly wrapped and carefully packed birthday parcel to my bestest friend Naomi was stolen from her letter box.
I am deeply saddened! It had a lovely card that i made myself, and cowboy wrapping paper, and 2 mixed tape cd's with cover art i made myself and a special japanese pompom diy fluffy toy thingy and a cute as gocco print i bought on etsy of a little japanese baby girl dancing with thunder and lighting and alive written on her nappy! in a frame!
AND SOMEONE STOLE ITIf you are the nasty person running around Carlton North with Namsy's birthday present - SHAME ON YOU! You have ruined her birthday. She is only smiling in this picture because she didn't know at that point that her present had been stolen from her.

ps. thanks anthony for your lovely shot of nams xx

lamplight makes me happy

i have new pets. they are a hoot. thanks Craftpaca xx

and here are my boys.

lamplight makes me happy.

Who knew there was a rain forest hidden in the bowels of the eastern suburbs?!
Not me, and it was right in my backyard.
