hiatus

In Uncategorized on November 10, 2010 at 8:18 PM

This blog will be on a sneaky hiatus for a small while. Not too long. I just need figure out where it will be heading from now on. One must always have direction after all and stage one of the experimental phase is over. Until then, random link love can be found on the White Ninja crackitybook Page here so feel free to Like for the love! And for your enjoyment in the meantime anyway…

Today’s revelations were brought to me to soundtrack of Mount Kimbie live in Norway…

(Ming-Zhu, this is for you too. No more maybes;)  )

Probably no one knows that I saw Placebo live five times

(or was that six?)

Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) – Eurythmics. Oh Annie.

And just so you don’t get a complete brain collapse from the French acidtrance-hardrave and Marilyn combo…

(yes I did make up the genre ‘acidtrance-hardrave’)

new band on my radar

Platinum Blonde. Hilarious. I just emailed my good friend Aaron in Canada to ask about the general consensus on this band as they were from Toronto originally (and Aaron is somewhat of a music guru) but hello Spinal Tap. Except for real. I mean check out the name for a start. But they also had some massively awesome glam rock noise tunes like this one here. Turns out Crystal Castles did a pretty tinny version of it just recently but………….they’ve just re-released it featuring Robert Smith and beats me if it isn’t a fricking awesome version. Robert Smith never sounded so happy about not being in love.

Original props in an NME article here. The Wild Palms – ‘To The Lighthouse (Team Ghost remix) and These New Puritans tune are pretty good too. Plus more but I haven’t listen to them all yet. Have to run to a fancy dress party dressed as a strawberry now instead…

There’s nothing I like more (aside from design) than rock music and photography. The combination of both then is like when Angelina got together with Brad (a good thing). These truly great images are from the new Tony Mott exhibition opening on Nov 27th at Raw Gallery in South Melbourne. Raw Gallery is a new gallery specialising in “rock and pop cultural photography”. I had many more terribly witty and supportive things to say about this but wordpress failed me and deleted my draft post. Enthusiasm now sparse. Nice photes though.

Click here for more exhibition pix. Snaps to Broadsheet for original article.

Fuck I love this woman.

oh man. Why do I keep finding amazing fashion websites right now?

The worst thing about committing to pay off your credit card when the Australian dollar is at an all-time high against the US one is that you mysteriously start finding ALL sorts of amazing, really well priced, e-stores from America. The last time this happened I found Need Supply Co. and ended up buying a pair of $200 leggings which have above-the-knee panels of really soft, black leather sewn up the front of them. Goddamn they make me happy. Just not so much so in the payment commmitment plan! (but I’m so happy;) ). The time before? Plasticland and fred flare. Now both I and my friend Sarah Madness have various bits of homewares and shooooooooooes which we don’t need but are totally freaking beautiful/hilarious. This time? I just found this. The boutiques section of Refinery 29. I can’t deal with this amazingness…

(ps. This trail of goodness started from an original link to this amazing skirt from killahbeez, a new and pretty cool North American blog I just got onto).

(pps. Always check out the music sections of these blogs (killahbeez included). They always have great mixtapes for finding new music.)

new band props

The Like. YES. The album Release Me is great. Just downloaded it. Shameless 60s girl group mod vibes but also a little bit punkish. Love it.

The Like on allmusic.com

(original props via the ever fantastic Miss James of bleubird vintage. Love this woman)
