Guy Fawkes

Happy Guy Fawkes!
So today was my last day at the longest job I have ever had - 4 years, 8 months and 1 day! I am excited to start a new challenge on Monday but to be honest, I am a little scared also!
But I am so amped that Obama won. Hurrah!
More on my last day of work soon!
(Sorry, I seemed to have overused exclamation marks in this post. See!)

Here I am

Hello friends. Remember me? I know, it's been too long. So much has happened.
Anyway I'm just dropping in to say hello. I hope to be back soon properly.
Right now, I'm watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show on the telly. Love it! It's been way too long since I saw it. Righto, I better get back to my sing-along. See you soon x

Happy Friday to you and you and you.
I hope I'm not disappointing you and you may already know that Jemaine got hitched last weekend. So to cheer you up here's a video by another Kiwi talent.

I am totally loving this song right now. I'd love to catch Ladyhawke live sometime. If you are in Europe you might just be that lucky. Check the tour dates here.

It's a cool video yeah? Ladyhawke (Pip Brown) totally rocks that fringe.
Check out Back of the Van. Equally as cool. What do you think?

Kate Moss in denim

I love her style. She sure does do denim well.

Picture from the August issue of Madison magazine.

Hey! So I've been hibernating. It's good. But it's bad because I should have been blogging. And I still have to show you the lovely parcel I received from Catherine! I just need to photograph it...
So for now here are some animal shots I am digging.

Here's little Mary Jane watching March of the Penguins. Ain't she funny?

And I love these photos from my flickr friends 1. 2. 3.

A couple of Fridays ago someone sent me this video on email. I was sitting alone in my office laughing out loud. It was just the tonic I needed after a long week.

And this is possibly one of the coolest dogs ever. EVER.

Enjoy! x

It's July already?

Yikes, how did half the year go by already?!
I bought this album when I was in Australia. I'd never heard anything by Jen Lekman. I like taking a punt like that. That's me living on the edge! It was so different to what I expected.
It's cool. I like it a lot. Especially 'Your Arms Around Me'. This version is a little different from the album version but it's a good acoustic version. I've said the word 'version' too many times haven't I?!
Jens is pretty cute! Aren't you surprised at how deep his voice is? I like that this song has a silly subject matter that you usually think nothing of, other than being a nuisance but Jens has made it into something quite lovely.
Check out the album version of this song for some lovely violins.
