Trippy Taco.

Trippy Taco.

How Babies Are Made.

The tofu asada burrito from Trippy Taco is phenomenal, as are their "Trippy Fries".  Go there!


I'm all about my cat, these days.

RSH, 1959-2009.

Tonight I'm feeling very stunned and sad from hearing the news that Australian musician Rowland S. Howard passed away today after a long battle with liver cancer.

I'm really not qualified to speak of his career and achievements, because I only discovered his music this year, but his album Pop Crimes has been one of my most listened-to this year.  You can read my friend Trevor's recent interview with him here, and there are some fantastic photos to be seen on this blog.

Truly a Melbourne icon, he'll be very much missed.  xox

La Linea.

I was reminded today of the cute Italian cartoon La Linea.  Drawn in the 70s by Osvaldo Cavandoli, it's a cartoon drawn in a single white line on a plain coloured background.  The main character and the cartoonist interact, with the cartoonist drawing obstacles for the character to deal with.  He is very emotional, and he sometimes gets very angry with the cartoonist, yelling and swearing at him in Milanese gibberish.  I love the hand gestures he makes too, to me they are so Italian!

There are heaps of videos on YouTube, but I've included a couple for you to enjoy.

This one, Eroslinea, is very strange!

I hope you like them as much as I do!  xx

Spotted in South Hobart last week - nerdy of me I know, but still cool!

My kitchen.

Goodbye Melbourne.

I just got these photos back today - here's some things from my last few days in Melbourne last month.

Checking in.

I'm in Hobart!

I have no internet at home so I'm spending hours at uni reading blogs and looking up recipes for my new-found veganism.

The hills are hilly, and I'm getting fit walking up the hill to my house every day.

It rained for three days straight over the weekend.

My friends Wagons played on Saturday night, so it was just like being in Melbourne.

I went to an art exhibition in Josh Pringle's garage.

I'm going to see Where The Wild Things Are tonight with my book group, and I'm going to wear my furry coat for the occasion.

I'm coming back to Melbourne briefly in a couple of weeks to finish things up at my old house, and eat greasy food and play trivia at the East.

I think that's all.
