'we'll hide you well in a secret place'

the Clean - 'Secret Place'

Over the last two months I've been listening to a lot of music that is new to me, and of all of it one song has really stood out. It's a song from the early 90s by the New Zealand, kiwi rock (I like how that sounds) gods: the Clean. I thought I'd share the song here. It's really beautiful and sad, and cool too. Really poetic and great.

It's from their album 'Modern Rock' which is still track-down-able, and is, I think, something of a lost classic.

Oh and the above is simply a space divided spin on a crop I did of a scan of a page from a photobook that someone else did that someone else posted to somewhere else... Anyway, I did the image earlier today and it seemed like it was somewhat like a secret place

'tally ho!'

"the road to rejection is better than no road at all..."

"if I see your negative shadow"

the great Stephen Malkmus doing an acoustic rendition of 'malediction' the final song off his 'Face the Truth' lp... there's an interview video before this one... but yeah, this song is great and I think this performance is really charming, disarming,

"I will lead it from the room"

message to sender... malladikshon/malkedikshun

"certain kinds of people that you got to know and"

a benediction wrapped in a malediction wrapped in benediction wrapped in a 'malediction' - his Mediterranean house in the rain, and i've wanted to leave this house, i don't want to leave this house, i want to leave this house, i don't want to leave this house

"others gotta go
if you wait till you're ready you'll never make an amends"

'Birds' is a comic I intermittently write and "illustrate". This particular strip was done as a gift for my mom this past Mother's Day, and was the first one I'd done in maybe seven or eight months, and the first color (of anything) in a while longer. I thought it turned out okay and I was actually happy with the joke, which fits with the strip's basic themes.

Eventually I'd like to do 'Birds' regularly in it's own place, but that's something I put on hold a long time ago. In the meantime, I'd like to post some here every so often. Below is the full unbroken up strip, and yeah I'm sort of going with photos that basically work but aren't really perfect at the moment.

ぜつぼうさいしゅ/despair collector

These are some photos I did the other day of what was the original ぜつぼう collage print (a photo I found and really liked, and fucked with and printed out in two high contrast b/w versions)... I still want to do something else with this but I liked something in these.

these two poisons

these two poisons
would be sad if they lost it
and they lost it

each other
they fucking lost it
before and after

these two poisons
were people

these two poisons
learnt a lot about
they learnt a lot about
lack of control

they thought they needed
an increased smoking habit
pills, wine

they thought they needed
each other
and they fucking did
honesty was a policy
they followed relentlessly

these poisons
held hands
these two nearly killed
each other
these two poisons
just fucked up
