At Webstock earlier this year, I briefly met a dude called Andrew Fulton. He was pretty cool ‘cos he was from Melbourne (sup, folks?!) But he was cooler ‘cos he has an online comic called Mumblier. I made it a rule of Webstock that if I met someone and they had a website/product/cause, I’d have to check it out. Andrew and I talked for a few minutes, he gave me a card, and that was that. But I’m sure glad I checked out his comic (sup, Andrew?)
Have a look at the photography of Hideaki Hamada. Go on, go and have a look now, I’ll wait… I’ve been following this dude on Flickr for a while now, and I ‘favourite’ nearly every photograph he uploads. If I was on Facebook I’d probably ‘like’ every single photo on his One Year website. (I’ve tried, but it didn’t work). I can’t publicly appreciate the images on this website, so I’m writing about them on mine. I love Hideaki Hamada’s photographs.
I recently came across this expression of poetry and truth again. I haven’t toured with a band extensively in my life, but from the few times I have, I know this hits the nail right on the head. If you feel like shit all the time, drink less beer at the gig. You will play better & feel better. What are you… a child? Some have the endurance for self abuse. Most don’t. Don’t wander off. Let someone know where you are.
