Photographer Required?

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

So I had this idea that I would like to get into a bit of photography, I mean, for more than just myself and a few shots for friends, just to try it out for a while. I have an Olympus EVOLT E-300 digital SLR and have experience shooting a few bands and weddings, but mostly I just play around trying to capture the light.

Anyway, just get in contact if you’d like to book a shoot for band shots, etc. Just getting some experience to start out with, then I might have to start charging.

An Enemy

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

So it seems I have unwittingly found myself fronting this psychedelic band called The Strange Attractors for just about a year now, ups and down and all, and still I seem stumped at what to tell people when they ask about it, so it usually comes out just the same old stuff, when what I really want to say is… I’m not sure. It has played a permanent role in the direction of existence however these past few months. What I’m still trying to figure out is if it is an enemy or a friend.

The group is still evolving, like all else, and we’re still to record a proper album. A video emerged on our YouTube channel the other day, something from a recent rehearsal: a cover of Anenome by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. See for yourself.

Jonestown Tickets

Monday, May 19th, 2008

Purchased my ticket for The Brian Jonestown Massacre the other day. They’re coming to Brisbane in August.

Got this email just then:

Hello Joshua,

I am writing in regards to the Brian Jonestown Massacre tickets that you have purchased through OzTix.

Upon receiving your tickets you may notice that the date on your ticket states the 7th of August. This date is incorrect; the correct date is Wednesday the 27th of August. All tickets will be valid for the correct date.

Once again the correct gig details are as follows:

Brian Jonestown Massacre
27th of August
The Arena

I would like to apologise in advance for any confusion that this may have made. If you have any questions or queries, please contact OzTix on 1300 762 545 or simply reply email.


Wouldn’t miss it for the world, regardless of what day it’s on.

TSA Suck

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

A preemptive effort at playing reverse fashion victim. The attractive boys have a little preview show down at Barsoma next Thursday. Even though it’s not their own show, best there be a decent breed of flyer to deliver into the hands of the people.

A good chance to hone some design skills with ill conceived ideas of criticism deflection and sensual suggestiveness. Sent out into the network ether just yesterday asking what people thought, and already some responses have rolled in.

Some favourites include:

“I think it’s hot!” –Ben

“Mmm… lollipop. It’s amazing how as innocent as lollipops can be so saucy. I like it.” –Jimi

“Hot… I need a moment…” –Leesa

“A very interesting look Josh, perhaps an unfinished symphony…?” –Jim

“That’s hot! …really like this one Josh. It’s an enticing look for your show & maybe time for me to get off my butt and come along…” –Stacey

“Its cool dude, I like your image! Type is in good place too.” –Kadir

“i dig. it’s stylish and funky, with a little bit of “we’re sexy” thrown in there.” –Nara

“Hi Josh, That’s really cool. The colours are awesome – really different to stuff you normally see in the Valley. It will really stand out.” –Danika

“Heh, sweet. Looks cool man.” –Maggie

That’s about it for now. It’s 3:20am and I have work tomorrow… Nite.
