Rather than watch the midday movie...

I thought I'd be better off posting an image I made yesterday morning:

It's not what I didn't do, it's what I did

Today I made a picture.
It's called Set In Stone (or: Self Portrait, show us ya norks!)
you are allowed to laugh

Why not drop by... for a bite

Location, location!
Erskineville - where anything can happen (image about 2004, negative scanned 2007)

Today has been a bit of a nothing day - we slept in longer than intended and then just did stuff.  I have a number of mediocre tasks on my plate of which I've done ziltch/nil/nothin'

Most of the day I've been resisting opening up Patti Smith's new book, Just Kids - I am up to page 27 and know that if I pick it up in the middle of the day, I will read it through in 1 or 2 sittings, it's SO good but it is one to spend time with this book think about an mull over.  She is such a good writer - a wonderful storyteller.
What I didn't expect to happen is the book provoking my own memories of wishes, anger & angst.

Midnight posting - exhibition, a new blog, a new photo on an old blog

My eyes are computer sore and it's one of those nights when I've been a long time in the chair with not a lot to show for it but I do have some news & updates.

Firstly, those on my newsletter list will know about the confirmation of my 5th solo exhibition, SANE opening on 25th June at the Albion Street Gallery.   SANE is a collection of collages I have created over the last few months that have a splash of Dada, a smidge of Orwell, a bit of pop and some Americana. There is even a little tease under a few subconscious layers, of the Australian film & TV industry.

Secondly I began a new blog called Buildings & Things last month - check it out when you get a chance.

Thirdly, I have updated my 5 years as a rock moll blog with new photos like this one:

More excitedly, Vivid, Sydney's annual festival of music, light and ideas, which runs from May 27 to June 21, is being curated by Laurie Anderson & Lou Reed - fabbo! 

I think that's it for this late hour
