Old Square Photos from OZ

In 1995 I was able to go to Australia to skateboard and be part of a music tour called the "Summersault" festival. I took an old Russian twin lens reflex camera that Miki Vuckovich gave me and tried to shoot some photos.

Deanna talks with Mike Mills, who came out to be part of an art show that Aaron Rose had organized called "Culture is our Business." And he was able to come on the music part of the tour too.

Deanna shot a nude of me. After age 28, the metabolism changed.

Is that an Obey shirt Mike Mills is wearing in the first photo? A friend of mine just went to zumies and sent me cell phone pics of all the dumbass Obey gear they had in there.
I'm sure shephard is enjoying his brand taking off though.

TURN OFF YOUR TV
I was actually watching TV yesterday, first time in months. It's weird, I'm not used to sitting through all of those advertisements. Youtube, Vimeo and Netflix have changed things. Vimeo doesn't have ads before every video like youtube does now.

Should have posted a nude from today for comparison. I'm fatter than that photo 95 right now. I need to skate more, tighten shit up.

I was just listening to the Pixies while cleaning up around the house. I didn't know the bassist for Pixies had her own band. kewl.

Looks like transworld is hinting at the future team AVE and Dill have put together. BA left girl! Intense.

I read internet rumours that Olson hooked up with Spike's ex-wife and now things are awkward at Girl for Olson. So he's leaving. Who knows if it's true.

Jgonz, you never listened to the Breeders or Kelley Deal 6000? Or the AMPS? Check that shit out!

I'm lacking some epic tunes, the sad punk.

Wow I didn't know she had an identical twin either. I haven't dived too deep into the pixies apparently. Let's take a moment to acknowledge how good Dollin's part in Baker 2G is.
Ok. I'll download that shit for sure.

The Beastie Boys, the Sonic Youth...if it were up to me the 90´s could have lasted 20 years.

Going to Kim´s BodyHead show at the Ludwig Museum here in Cologne.
Diving into the noisey waves of feedback and distortion or at least getting me some solid tinnitus.

How´s life everyone?

Was never a huge breeders fan but Iris is an awesome song

silver is my favorite pixies song and I think Kim wrote it, too lazy to look it up

I'm obsessed with divine hammer by the breeders. Such a good song.
