oldie but goodie

War Games? Not a fan...the art however

Okay. Last night I was attempting to cook dinner over the fire, and was challenged. Not because I had to wrap the yams five times because we cheaped out on tin-foil quality. But because it felt and sounded like there were bombs going off... such unpeaceful, peaceful camping. I thought there is no way I'm hearing bombs? Found out, I was hearing bombs.

Turns out my tent was perched very close to an Australian Army Training Area. It was also very close to one of the most beautiful beaches and islands this fine country has to offer. I bit messed up, no?

Okay I'm not going to rant about how I spent my morning coffee scowling at jetfighters in the sky, and dodging morons with guns on the road and violently shaking my head at the stupidity of it all.

I will say these two points. Make love not war. War can inspire.

I just feel in love...

And it was at first sight. To be fair I haven't read this yet from cover to cover. But what I have seen so far, I'm a smitten kitten. 

Next time you visit the Yarra...

So I went to the Yarra Valley last month, stayed at a romantic cottage, ate organic eggs, stoked a fire place with pinecones, listened to frank sinatra, sipped wine all day, ate cheese at night....and got bored. Until, I took a wrong turn and ended up at a llama and gerber farm. And my life got better. 

Two things: First, how wonderful is a llama and gerber combo? And secondly, how wonderful is a llama and gerber combo?

So their website was probably designed from the photocopier salesman down the road, but just role over the Rico Alpaca Stud button, and then try and tell me your life isn't better.


Architecture in Helsinki are RADDDDD_dA-
If you ever get a chance to go watch this group live you wont be disappointed. Bright, fun, highly entertaining and inspiring. They literally jump the whole time on stage, such good energy and Im thinking good calves too.
Even though their music is head bopping-tastic... their art is even better!
Big Call? I don't think so. Their videos, fashion and album covers make me giddy. So if you havent checked them out...especially all you Canadians....well you need to this instant.

Im not sure if they needed another plug... but tonight, they are getting it from me.
