Diary of a disaster?

Came across this wonderful blog entry by David Walsh, creator and founder of Tasmania's seriously impressive Museum of Old and New Art. Check it out here.


Below, an excerpt to whet your appetite:
"Grace is now excitedly shaving the head of Jemma’s boyfriend, Matt (who is agreeing to be shorn out of solidarity, since Grace has had some hair removed). Thus the world revolves. And as I already knew but now my knowing is renewed, my world revolves around my children. Through Grace’s misfortune, and through her fortune, I feel pain and I feel joy. And I feel her travails and triumphs more bitterly, and more exultantly, than I feel my own. That’s what love is."

Thursday Tunes

Here's some music that found me this week. First up, Australian Bon Iver lover Dustin Tebbutt is from New England New South Wales. How he managed to maintain this sound growing up in country music, er, country is beyond me. But this song gets an overly-reverbed falsetto 'Hell's yeah!' from me.



Next up - and changing the mood slightly - is Pro Era hip hop collective member and 18-year-old Brookly-nite Joey Bada$$ (even his name be blinging) with some very laid back loops overlaid with some swearing.

Take that Thursday and pump it.
