nappy pigmas

On the Festive Earburner : The Shadows - Walking in the Air

n.b : draw the curtains to black out all the light,
save for the glow of an occasional burning ember
then turn this pink floyd song on antisocially loud
and lay a while together, listening

happy christmas you old mincing tarts

(London's Finest)
(Unquestionably my favourite Shop)

Old Faithful
(Vancouver's Treasure)

The thoughtfully considered stocking of both these stores, provides home ware articles that i perceive to be part of an ideal aesthetic achieved through very select classic, timeless, design.

Visit the shops/websites
It's the only way you will understand, if you don't already.

Paper Heart

whilst feeling a little fragile last Sunday eve, due to countless days spent celebrating my quarter century riding high on devil juice, i found this film and was pretty charmed. being one to always question 'given' sentiments and lifestyle choices, i liked Yi's original exploration, then the story turns a bit, whilst i remained charmed. it could, potentially, be a bit sickly for some, but it did the trick at that moment.

Check out Charlyne Yi's blog / myspace

she is creatively productive, a trait alone i find inspiring

On the Earburner : Joan Baez

my drinking buddy showed me this a while back
i watch it now and again, perhaps you'd like to too

charmed by a) the drummer b) the lead singers incredible glasses c) pretty swede song

And she makes stunning jewellery

I figure some people just nail it...

Blessing Force

It goes without saying that the appropriately named Blessing Force are currently being seen as such by many. Having grown up near Oxford, and blessed with a few of the right friends at the right time for initial encouragement, much of my time has now been spent seeing various acts who form Blessing Force incarnated in various bands and places and, in what must be getting close to 7 or 8 years, I still harbour a genuine fondness and respect for their ongoing efforts, continuing to return to them throughout time, ever curious.

A good pal and I turn a little older in the following days and, as a gift, are both off to CAMP to see 3 absolutely Stella acts from within 'Blessing Force' camp

Jonquil, Pet Moon & Rhosyn,

25 might not be so painful after all
, on reflection,
24 wasn't nearly as bad as it seemed sometimes

For the all seeing eggs

Christo and Jeanne-Claude were born on the same date.
