The annoying thing about this digital age is nothing is physical anymore. I don’t actually have a new record, like a hard case and artwork and a record and I don’t have to find a place to store it. We don’t have to actually see it, its all tucked away inside our iPhone and iPads and on hard drives, youtube and vimeo. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of that, but the only thing that does my head in is, I forget! It might be because I’m a dumb ass who forgets everything but I literally forgot about Warpaint. Its not until I was reminded of their new record that I even remembered the previous one. God damn. With that in mind, here is my favourite song from the 2010 record, The Fool. This live version is pretty rad. Enjoy.
Finally, after 3 years I have an about me page. I’m always being asked how and why the blog stated and now it is all there in the menu bar for your viewing pleasure.
I want to buy shoes and boot and trainers all day everyday. I haven’t got a trainer fetish, I just fucking love fancy footwear. Ya dig?

Bloody Tim is making me smoke weed. I turn into an absolute mong when I smoke this nonsense. Spent 3 hours watching QVC and laughing last time. Here goes. #JustSayNo

Someone PLEEEEASE Take me to Coachella next year!
One of my favourite things in the world is having my tiny mind blown. Possibly even more than I like having my dick blown! Finding this today has 100% blown my mind! This absolutely astonishing video captures Jordon Wolfsons latest work of art that is currently being exhibited in the David Zwiner gallery in New York.
"Presented here for the first time, Wolfson’s animatronic sculpture, titled (Female figure), combines film, installation, and performance in the figure of a curvaceous, scantily clad woman covered in dirt marks and wearing a witch mask. Unlike the artist’s two-dimensional subjects, this life-size character was developed in close collaboration with a special effects studio in California used by major Hollywood productions. The woman can be encountered on a one-on-one basis in a mirrored room in the gallery, creating a different kind of viewing experience that intensifies the importance of the gaze found throughout Wolfson’s work."
I have watched this about 20 times in the past hour, completely drawn in by the fluid movements and that stare. As scary as it is, both the actual piece and knowing that shit can move this fluidly and humanly and be a robot!, I cannot help but get that complete feeling of amazement! I remember feeling the same way when I discovered Chris Cunninghams work and watching ‘Windowlicker’ for the first time. I think its this kind of emotion I get a tick out of. Being slightly uneasy, shit scared and find it so compelling I can’t stop watching it and trying to find everything I can about it!
If you are any wear new NewYork then please go see it for me! I’ve made Tim promise that if we win the lottery we can go to NY and see it before the exhibition ends. Let me know if you do see or have seen it. I’ll stop rambling now! Enjoy! x
PS. And for those of you wondering what the tune she is dancing to is, fear not, I’ve already hunted it down! Here x
