Want a middleman to seek out all the music you never have time to take the time risk to randomly click and listen for yourself on Youtube? I found one. Sonic Masala is a music blog born in the heart of London. Two music loving drunks decided over an early morning curry that they spend so much time talking about music, it was time to write about it, then share it. So they did. I love it.
Com Truise and I are going to get married. I proposed to him on Twitter and he replied with, ‘Deal’. Com Truise is the alias of American electronic musician, Seth Haley. I had the luck of finding him by chance: the allure of his neon geometric 80-esque preview images on on Youtube by caught my eye. So I took a chance and clicked. The audio love affair began.
This week I returned home from the hills of Ubud, in Bali Indonesia, with some very important information: I found the best hidden restaurant in Ubud. There it is, tucked away on a small street, Jalan Gootama. Melting Wok Warung sits about halfway down and seats very few. We tried the local Indo dishes and it was something special. I’m sad to admit that I lost my camera while on the back of a high speed moto, so I have no food pictures. All I have left are a few Instagram pictures I took while exploring Ubud.
Natalia Grzybowski, a Sydney-based fashion and textile designer, has just released this amazing Hybrid collection. Her creations are something else. The delicate prints are so feminine and soft, yet the garments are so structured and ultra modern.
I just got word that Brisbane artist Luisa Rossitto has started working on new work for an upcoming show at Melbourne’s Helen Gory Galerie. Please mark your diary for this one: August 15. Luisa Rossitto draws and paints. I want to drown in her watercolors, eat her handdrawn florals, and befriend her odd characters. Her large works are such an absurd and alluring feast for the eyeballs.
I’ve recently taken up knitting as a way to soothe the daily desktop grind and in an attempt to disconnect from my deep technology immersion. I hit the needles in the early evenings, and I find it reconnects me with my love of tactile creation. Knitting is also a strange repetitive form of mediation. I got a bit knitting crazy and recently set off on an online hunt to find all things knitting. I quickly found Yokoo, who is simply known as Yokoo.
