sometimes I get easily confused …

and I read too much into what people say or do.

I usually end up twisting myself into little knots worrying about what I’ve said, or what I’ve done, or what I haven’t said or what I haven’t done.  There are people in my life that I care too much about; and I care too much about what they think.

I don’t ever really want to get too personal here – but that’s it.  I care too freakin’ much.

I need to get well – I really do.  I’m so bored of being sick.
My first attempt at an ‘Art Journal’ – see my page here on Teesha Moore for one of my influences!

One Thing At a Time

Brian sent me links to the Dresden Dolls show at the Inaugeration – unfortunately they’ve all been removed by the looks of things, ooooh no they haven’t, they’re there again – HOORAH! {

Cover of War Pigs – FUCKING LOVE IT:

Good Day – OH YES 🙂

Cover of Blueprint – by Fugazi – such an awesome track – LOVE THIS:

Ahhhh … makes me smile 🙂

Only a couple of weeks to go until Amanda Palmer plays at the Electric Ballroom – wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee … and then a few more months until World/Inferno hopefully come back to the UK … fingers crossed.

I need to find another couple of bands to salivate over! ha ha.

Print sale to raise funds for WM3

I’ve been a long-time supporter of the WM3 (West Memphis Three) and I’ve been wanting to raise money for them somehow in order to help with their re-trials, and general financial support for their families.

So I came up with the idea that I could raise funds by selling my photos.

I approached Brian Viglione and Amanda Palmer from The Dresden Dolls with regard to selling my images of them to raise funds.  They’ve both said yes – to photos of the band, Brian’s band World/Inferno Friendship Society and also Amanda’s solo shots.  I’m still waiting to hear back from Margaret Cho about photos I have of her from when she compared their show at The Roundhouse.

I’d like to use one solo Amanda, one Dresden Dolls, and Brian said I can use as many as I want of him – so I have photos of him from The Roundhouse, with Jesse Malin and with World/Inferno.

I’m not sure if anyone’s going to buy these – but I’m hoping people will – as it’s for a good cause (in my humble opinion).

So – I’m handing things over to you guys – which photos would you pick?

Here are the albums:

Hopefully there might be one or two shots there that people might be interested in?

zen and the art of breaking everything in this room …

… is kind of how i feel in a strange way.  i’m sitting in my classroom, ruminating about how i’m actually going to tidy all this shit up.  and it acts as a metaphor for my life.  how am i actually going to tidy all my shit up?  part of me just wants to break it all apart and start again from scratch but i’m such a horder that i hold onto things that offer me nothing in return.

however … another quote from the viggie:

” It’s good to vent, but not healthy to dwell in self-absorbedness and schloffing.”

which is what i has been doin’ (yes, i meant to screw up my grammar there!).

quote from my dad:

“pull yourself together”

quote from my mum:

“well i suffered from depression and i didn’t have to take pills for it”

quote from my sister:

“what’s wrong with you now?”

hmmm, don’t even start me on what others have said.

Looking forward to two deliveries of World/Inferno goodliness – firstly – this t-shirt:

I'm not suggesting that I'm an anarchist or pretty!

I

which i LOVE.  i wanted to get some of their shirts when i saw them in brighton and london, in fact, lucky even said they’d sort me out with some merchandise (as i’d done a photo shoot etc.) … however, i’m not one to hassle for stuff and also, they don’t have a lot of $ so i wanted to get my own.  i didn’t have much money when i saw them live, so i’ve had to wait to buy my tee.  can’t wait until it arrives 🙂 

 

 

secondly … posters advertising their new tour … cos … they’re using a photo of mine 🙂  i was never very happy with the photoshoot as it was a bit last minute and i’d walked them miles and sandra’s heel broke.  it was all a bit fraught, also the whole band wasn’t there.  however, a photo is being used, and that makes me smile 🙂

Good things that happened yesterday:

– slept well

– ate cherry pie and vege roast dinner

small things make me happy!
