hello! sorry it’s been a while! i’ve been busy running round in circles all year. taking one step forward and three back but thats how it goes i guess. jordie, port and i picked up little bush life and move to wollongong, nsw. its weird…not being in the hills anymore. i know that view so well…it ingrained in my brain…which is nice…and our little home. it was the first house we lived in that really felt like home…but it was time to leave i guess…we weren’t moving forward anymore…so we picked up our things and left our hidden little nest and now we’re livin’ in suburbia. so many people are like “why wollongong?” which pisses me off…like why anywhere? they’re just stayin’ comfortable and stale…i must admit i had very low expectations of this place…but i’ve been pleasantly surprised. i’ve been soaking in the people. i love seeing so much diversity! a much needed change from opinionated mullum hippies. since being here we’ve done a bunch of shows in sydney and here in wollongong which have been fun. its harder to practice in suburbia but i guess theres gotta be some trade offs. i’ve let catatonia slip for a while partly because people didn’t really give a shit about it but mostly because the structure wasn’t interesting enough to keep me into it. i do plan to bring it back down the track but it will be more personal, band stuff, photos, diaries, stories and art. i can’t imagine anyone was hanging out for the next issue…but if you were i apologies for lettin’ you down. i’ve been working pretty hard to get my graphic design to earn us some monies which has been good…but hasn’t left a lot of time drawing and updating this blog…so i’m gonna just give you a bunch of links so you can check out what i have been doing if your interested…and i’ll make sure to post some new work here soon.
