Last week I said goodbye to an old friend. My beloved camper van, Gus, had been with me since the ripe age of 16. He taught me how to drive. We shared so many adventures, assisted so many house moves and did more than our fair share of sick skids. Ever somewhere to crash after a party, camping trips or a sneaky weekend roadie. He touched so many lives and butts. His signature blue stripes will live on in our memories now that he is on route to the big wrecking yard in the sky. Vale Gus the Suss Bus. Here is Gus immortalized in google street view, parked outside our since demolished jam room.

I guess this means I could be The Special. It’s 24 years old and a bit faded but this is my whole resume right here.

I know my bandmates hate it when I blast while they’re discussing Cool Riffs™ at practice so I blast on the weekends on my own 😎

About 4 years ago I drew some sketches for the shape of a lounge seat. About 4 hours ago the latest version of that original design got installed in the Brunswick Street Mall as a permanent fixture. It’s now due to cop a beating and be spat on, bled on and vomited on. I couldn’t be prouder.

Waited 4 weeks for a tube of conductive paint to arrive from the UK so we could do some experiments in drawing circuits on paper. It was a total failure.

Brought my work camera gear home and set up a flash box at a party we threw last night for my housemate Mel’s 30th. The theme was goth. Here are some highlights.
