gigz/z/z



Saw Dum Dum Girls on Saturday at Rough Trade (although we did only manage to catch their last song, but we've seen them before supporting mgmt ) and Trophy Wife afterwards at Crack Magazine's launch party at the Nest in Dalston, which was so good. Last time we saw them was at Latitude so we were happily reminiscing about summer times. So yeah, then tomorrow it's Washed Out w/ John Maus and saturday seeing The Neat back in Dalston. Stoked.
I'll pop some mp3s & photos up here later, got to go to UCL's student newspaper / zine elections - hoping to be the website's photography editor, but we shall see! /// Laterz.

epiphenomenal

Deerhunter at Latitude 2011
Finally got a couple of films developed. Got a load more to scan, and like 7/8 disposables from over a year ago to get developed too. Finally getting to grips with my film cameras, so I'm hoping when I get my newer film developed, it'll be a lot better than my hap hazard photography skills I had a while ago haha.
Anyway, so much love for these Deerhunter photos, they were beyond amazing at Latitude. // Also go listen to Atlas Sound's aka Bradford Cox's new album, Parallax, its a beaut.

scintillating


Kirsi Pyrhonen shot by Tim Walker for Vogue, December 2011, styling by Kate Phelan.
Everything about this editorial is beautiful. The setting; Mongolia, Kirsi Pyrhonen (beyond beautiful, and she's only 17), the photography / composition / colours / lighting (Tim, you've done it again), the clothes (Lanvin, Miu Miu, Givenchy, Mary Katrantzou, Comme des Garçons, et al)...Will be stuck onto my flat walls when I return to ldn as a source of inspiration for the coming winter months.

((( please excuse the adhoc scanning but i think it looks rather cool )))

Beautiful artworks by Brooklyn based artist, Jessica Williams.
Her blog is awesome, and NSEW, a/her publishing platform have an amazing build your own collage thing here which I naturally spent absolutely ages on..

HELLO.
Instead of ranting on about how much of a terrible blogger I am, I shall just say that I am back after a hectic but amazing few months. Just realised the last time I posted was before results day which is surreal seeing as I'm a month in (studying History of Art) at UCL and in love with it all. London is insane, and beautiful and everything I imagined it would be like living there. I hardly feel like a student walking around Waitrose (it's the most local okay) & the beer ain't cheap (it is London after all) but the walk to campus every morning, black coffee on mass, visiting Regents Park with the flat mates to watch the sunset, setting off fire alarms, drinking games, spending hours in the library, getting a free ticket to Frieze Art Fair, having to visit numerous exhibitions / collections / museums / galleries as 'assignments' (love), having covent garden, brick lane (almost) and camden all within walking distance, accidently sitting in on MA Philosophy lectures, and actually being able to go to gigs / see bands are just some of the brilliant things about being a fresher that make the lack of money / essays / etc etc totally worth it. All in all london is pretty darn rad.

So yuh. I'm going to reinvent this blog a bit and keep it for inspiration / photography / artwork purposes.

Surfing the internet on numerous blogs / zines / portfolios / websites at 3am used to be a regular pastime but now the only reasons I'd be up now would be because either I had an essay deadline the next day or I'm out dancing the night away in london town. I'm back in chelt / dumbleton this week though so here I am, half 3 in the morning, gorilla vs bear october mixtape on, multiple tabs open, sat in an eerily empty room but in my lovely lovely bed by the light of the moon. jokes that would be too perfect, I'm so sentimental. But yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah, hi guys.

// Time in LDN goes so fast, it's just so nice to be home.


oh, and changed the url / blog name // I have a thing for blue flowers...

/ / these are hazy dayz / /

THESE DAYZ;
// GARDENING // LDN // TAME IMPALA + WOLF PEOPLE // WALKING PAST JAY WATSON // MAKING THINGS // BUYING THINGS // SELLING THINGS // PLANNING THINGS // CLEARING OUT // GETTING PSYCHED FOR LATITUDE // READING LISTS // PHOTOGRAPHING // BUYING VINYL // GREEN TEA // CONTEMPLATING MY FUTURE AND ALL THAT // WIMBLEDON // STRAWBERRIES // HAVING A JOB // HATING HAVING TO WAIT UNTIL MID AUGUST TO  KNOW, LIKE, EVERYTHING AKA RESULTS urgh // + GENERALLY DOING NOTHING // 
////
... hence why I haven't really posted here in a while. 
It is such an unbelievable / surreal / liberating / incredible relief not to have to do, well, anything. I can mill around the house all day and not feel guilty. It's odd, especially due to the fact that, for the first time in 2 years , I'm not having to think about some art project all. the. time. Without the pressure to document and develop every single idea or inspiration you come across, I can just appreciate everything so much more,
without constantly thinking how to tie it in, link it, present it, write about it etc, etc. Strange, but so good. The only decisions I have to make now are whether to have a cup of green tea or yorkshire tea or what colour flowers I should plant in my garden (I'm addicted to gardening already, it's ridiculous.) I seriously don't know what to do with myself. Obviously as part of procrastination mid exams I made lists upon lists of projects I'd undertake once I finished but I haven't really done too much. Although I am getting a stall at the
 village fete at the end of august to sell jewellery and thingz so that should be good. 

^ ramble.

~~ anyways // found this amazing editorial in UNDER/CURRENT magazine when I was in Rough Trade the other day about Kenzo. Photography by Can Evgin, Styling by Melina Nicolaide. just lush.
