Because everyone needs to have 'KILLER' embroidered on at least one piece of clothing

Love these! 

God is in the detail...


So I'm still not 100% convinced about how these guys look from the front or the side (just a little bit too blah) but the back view sells it.  Loving the little flash of colour.  I'd me happy if I saw that little flash of bright red or yellow peeking out from under a pair of nicely taperd or slim cut casual trousers or jeans, gotta have a rolled cuff though.  


Lost Music List.

Since my computer was stolen I have gradually been discovering exactly how much music I didn't have backed up.  Its become so frustrating wanting to listen to music I don't have anymore that I've put together a christmas music wish list.  Needless to say christmas is going to feature some hardcore re-aquiring sessions.....

My Lost list:
Newton Falkner
The yeah yeah yeahs 
M.I.A - Kala
Hot Chip
The Libertines
John Zorn
High Contrast
Harmonic 313
Four Tet
Florence + the machine
Ellie Goulding
Dorian Concept 
The Correspondents
Boards of Canada
Fleet Foxes
Roots Manova
DJ Kentaro
King Cannibal
Toddla T
The Bug
Matt Black
Floating points

This is my list so far.  Any extra ideas let me know. 


When trying to start a project.....dick about with paper.

*Have been struggling to get going on this new project,  I've pulled a blank on any kind of theme or concept so settled for messing about with paper cuts and geometric doodles.  I ideas are slowly forming but so far my puddle of indecision remains pretty icy and immobile.  Massive creative brain freeze!


Freezing! but beautiful.

Leicester.  On the way home.
Taken while balancing a massive sack of uni crap and an arm of books, nearly gave up on finding the camera but   glad I didn't.


How many exposures?

The top one is strange. 
How many people do you count in it?


OLD black and whites.

I dug out a load of undeveloped negatives from my art foundation, these are probably from the my first ever go with an analogue SLR camera.  Taken in Bath probably some time around December 2007.


So apparently Leicester is now Narnia....

I know its snowy and shit but seriously - it wont be lasting 100 years....


Christmas Day 1. Post 102.

When it comes to reindeer you should always start with the head...

I've been waiting ages to crack into the advent calendar.  Its been staring at me for the best part of 2 weeks now and finally......omnomnomnomnom....
Clocked on that I had past the 100 post mile stone earlier too so thought I would crack a beer and celebrate.
3 posts in 1 day, thats procrastination for you.


So I went home last weekend from uni for the first time ever, got back on friday and by saturday morning it had snowed!  Only a dusting, but while making breakfast I got a little overexcited by the frost patterns I saw on the shed windows, grabbed the camera and ran outside for a look.   Realised I was barefoot about halfway across the frosty garden, I would not recommend going barefoot in the snow.  It woke me up, but getting ice burns on your toes for the sake of frosty shed windows isn't a particularly good plan!

Thieving bastards.

I mentioned in my last post that I had had a massive crisis, and I'm still having one, its just sinking in a bit deeper and I feel a need to articulate my fury.  I suppose the most simple and basic way of explaining things would be to say that I have had my nearly new 15inch Macbook pro stolen.  From my room in my house in Leicester.

The fucking thieveing douchbags didn't even take anything from my housemates, just my fricking computer, an old ipod nano and (just to be petty) 2 half packets of cigarettes! Bastards.
Understandably I'm fairly aggravated by this, but surprisingly its not so much the loss of an expensive (and uninsured) computer, its the simple fact that I have lost EVERYTHING on it too.
I dont have an external hard drive (another major rookie error) and have therefore lost about 6 years worth of photography, work and artwork as well as about 35G of music.  This is my massive crisis, although fortunately the day before the break in I had just handed in the first of my 3 projects for this year.  If it had happened on Monday I might have thrown myself straight in the Soar.
Whats creepy though is that the burglar alarm apparently didn't go off, and there were no signs of forced entry so we have the extra issue of working out how they got in and how they knew how to unset and reset our burglar alarms when they left.  Maybe setting tiger traps in the hallway could be a good plan for next time?

Anyway all that happened last week, last wednesday to be exact.  I could call it my one week burglary anniversary.  But I don't think I will.  Better things have happened since then like SNOW and the boiler breaking down,  it has definitely been a good week for bad luck.  On the upside though I went home and managed to recover a small amount of music and about an 8th of my photographs from an old and vaguely broken hard drive, I've even managed to borrow back an old laptop to work on, and got a crafty hot shower in this  morning while the boiler was in a good mood.  So life hasn't completely gone to shit yet.
