photobooth

Posted in culture, fashion, life, literature, love, melbourne, photography, style, weight loss, writing by tarantulatrash on September 20, 2010

this photobooth made me look like i have dirt running down my neck. damn chapel st.  i don’t, really.

i deleted the fashion blog because i was lazy- isn’t that appalling!???
i know i’ve been really, really bad at blogging lately- i’m sorry! just insanely busy and my camera is still broken. i’ve managed to lose around 4-5 kilos since jamie left, which is the single perk.  he also set up his own photography website, go look!

ultimate frisbee tournament tomorrow for the Victorian Teacher’s Games. pumped!!!!

i have also decided that i’m going to do nanowrimo. someone else do it with me!

ALSO, i am obsessed with finding out what the background music is on this site- FRAVSHOP.COM. they not only have GREAT clothing, I have had the background music on loop for at least an hour.

Dear Cornelius.

This very attractive photo was taken by Geoff and features not only the man of my dreams, but also a man I would like to stress my appreciation and love for, Mark. Mark is one of my favourite people, and I am very, very glad he is here for me to have supernatural marathons with.

Today I am going to learn to knit.

For the past two weeks Jamie has been dragging me to the gym every day. I ran 10km on Monday, and I was so proud. Now, my hip is screwed and I can barely walk. Why am I telling you this? Because screwing my hip means I now have time to blog whilst Jamie is at the gym. I have a couple of things to update you on:

  • My exhibition “the aesthetic of imperfection” has now changed date and venue. It will now be at the Ballarat Mill Markets, which is awesome because a lot more people will see my stuff. The opening is on August 7th, 4-6.
  • My LC-A+ is still broken.
  • I have salvaged a few photos from the film the LC-A died whilst taking, and have just scanned the negatives- no prints yet. I imagine the prints will be significantly different.

  • I have purchased wool, and tonight I plan on learning to knit.

I will blog again soon! I miss you guys! I’m just making the most of having my boyfriend here, and that generally doesn’t involve sitting in front of the computer.

Back at home!

This is my englishman playing soccer in my dad’s backyard in Tassie, taken with his Diana mini. I go back to work tomorrow, after 2 weeks off. I’m not overly excited about this. I’ll be back to blogging regularly now, as I’m actually home!

The reason I’ve been a bad blogger..

Posted in art, culture, lc-a, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized, weight loss by tarantulatrash on July 2, 2010

Lots of things have been happening! I’ve spent the past week in Tasmania with my gorgeous Englishman, away from phone reception and internet. I also have some terrible, terrible news.

My LC-A+ is broken. The shutter release is fucked.

Jamie took this with his Canon 400D. I think it’s spectacular.

I have a roll I’ve been waiting 3 weeks to get back, and one half roll of slide film from when my LC-A broke. Devastated.
In other news, it is true that boyfriends make you fat. I’ve gained about 4 kilos since he got here three weeks ago. AWESOME. HOORAY.

JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY

Posted in art, art melbourne, culture, film, life, lomo, lomography, love, melbourne, photography, street fashion, vintage by tarantulatrash on June 14, 2010

Me, by Geoff, with my LC-A+. Taken at Red Tongue, Brunswick street, Fitzroy. Again, note the incredible hat.

JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAYJAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY JAMIE IS LEAVING TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited, I have had to change my pants four times today already. I can also remember when there were 180 days to go, and retrospectively the time has flown.

Sex pistols

Posted in culture, fashion, life, love, photography, vintage, writing by tarantulatrash on June 9, 2010

This is a photo of my mum and dad back before I existed. If you look carefully you can see that it says “Sex Pistols” on the wall behind them. This will always be my favourite photo. It sits in a frame in my lounge room.

6 days until I drive to pick up Jamie from the airport. Still not feeling real. He has some new photos up he took with his Diana Mini, you should go look!

I bought a pair of denim shorts off ebay, and they arrived with a free “versace” white vintage singlet. It was odd, but no complaints 🙂

5 months of missing you.

Posted in culture, life, love, writing by tarantulatrash on May 30, 2010

It’s been exactly 5 months since the day Jamie and I met. It’s also  been exactly 5 months since we decided we had to spend the rest of our lives together.

It’s been 4 months and 25 days since I’ve seen him.
He is here in 16 days. It’s going way, way too slow.

Dear Prudence.

I know I’ve been a bad blogger!!!!! I won’t be from now on!! It’s been what, a week?

20 days!!!

Photos of photos.

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on May 14, 2010

I took these of digital photos on my computer screen. I freaking love them.

It’s a month until I pick Jamie up from Tullamarine Airport. It’s starting to feel more real.

Which way to go?

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on May 13, 2010

I’m having trouble working out what I want to do with the next 18 months of my life. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ruv.

I look at this and wish it hadn’t come out so shiny. But then again, the world IS shiny.

Melbourne

Posted in art, art melbourne, culture, lomo, lomography, love, melbourne, photography, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on May 4, 2010

I adore this city.

42 Days!!!

I’m still counting.

Posted in culture, life, love, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on April 30, 2010

4 months of love today.

46 days until I see him again.

Probably not going to let him go back to England. Even if I have to chain him to my house.

My hair is no longer black.

Posted in art, culture, life, love, photography, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on April 23, 2010



And now I can barely afford to live for the next two weeks.

Also, the affair I’m having with a communist from London has been uncovered. I will now be moving to London instead, to be with him. Sorry if that ruins your fairytale, everyone.

The reason I’m quite happy to become an immigrant.

I will cross the sea for you.

I need

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on April 16, 2010

A break.

Less than 9 weeks now.

I want a bike.

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, melbourne, photography, sport, Uncategorized, vintage by tarantulatrash on April 14, 2010

With a basket and sweet vintage step-through style. LC-A+, AGFA 200.

I just played truth or dare with Jamie for an hour. The bastard just kept saying “truth”. I think he may have been scared of what my dare would be.
It may have involved nudity.
It’s late, and I’m tired. I bought 9 pairs of underwear today, all exactly the same.

I am sick of hearing about/ seeing “fixies”.  Apparently this is becoming a subculture of its own in Melbourne? With a hierarchy of fixie enthusiast stature?

I have become obsessed with Waterfords Apple Berry Natural Mineral Water.

I’m really not making a lot of sense.

Goodnight.

Sorry!

I know I haven’t been as good a blogger lately, but I’ve been feeling like shit, been insanely busy and having a mini creative rut. Tonight, Jamie made me feel a whole lot better, by showing what he really thinks about my intelligent mind-

I shudder to think of what our children are going to turn out like.

I’m getting a film back tomorrow, with some good shots (I hope) of friends and Melbourne. Will scan/post/attribute words to ASAP.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KERRY

Who reads this??

Posted in art, art melbourne, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, melbourne, photography, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on April 7, 2010

Lomo LC-A+

I’m getting from 100-250 views a day, and about 10-15 people have commented on my blog, total. I’m really curious as to who the other people are who are following my outbursts of bullshit and creativity. If you follow my blog regularly, could you comment this blog? I’m just really curious as to who the other 100 people are. I’m sure they’re not a different hundred every day.

I’m off to Melbourne now, to see my lovely friends, drop one particularly lovely friend off at the airport, do an NDT course, work at the hospital and go to Kerry’s “High Tea” birthday party. I’ll be back Sunday, with photos.

My Diana Mini has been held up in postage apparently, but I’m saving the Velvia and Sensia for it. Agfa attack this weekend. Book to read on the train this week- Albert Camus, “The Plague.”

69 days.

I want to live here.

Posted in culture, life, love, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on April 7, 2010

And I could paint, and draw, and write, and not be bothered by anyone. We would have each other, and wouldn’t need anything else. Fill our cottage with art and music and words. I’d have a step-through bike with a basket, and go and get fresh vegetables in the morning. We wouldn’t have a TV, because there is so much to see and create. Lazy mornings with an endless teapot and books and blankets. Someone please, send me there.

[no idea where this picture is from, sorry to whoever I should credit.]

Once upon a time

Posted in life, literature, love, religion, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on April 4, 2010

Jamie wrote a blog about me. He’s incredible. I am so, so lucky.

The other half of my duprass.

Back home.

Posted in art, art melbourne, culture, life, literature, lomo, lomography, love, melbourne, photography, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on April 3, 2010

Tonight I am at Geoff and Kerry’s. Kerry is cleaning, I’m drinking a green apple UDL and trying to decide whether or not I have enough energy to go and get pizza. Geoff is watching “Teen cribs” and Chani is trying to dye her hair without turning her neck black. I finished “Slaughterhouse 5” today by Vonnegut.

In other news, I fell in love all over again last night. Although, that happens most days. Jamie.

Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.

I am sick.

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on April 1, 2010

I’m sick. I can’t stop coughing, my eyes are leaky, my head hurts, my nose is running and I feel like I’m going to pass out. Hooray for the holidays.

Countdown- 75 days. Less than 11 weeks. My prince.

Edinburgh.

Posted in art, culture, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized, vintage by tarantulatrash on March 28, 2010

I’m currently in Tasmania, with my Dad, Stepmum and 3 siblings. I’ll be going into Hobart on adventures this week to find film and some sweet vintage clothing. In other news, I’ve decided to move to England within 18 months. Love>job.

Send me over.

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on March 27, 2010

Now.

Would you drop everything to move 10,000 miles for love?
I don’t know what’s stopping me. I’m not sure I’m brave enough.

Carnaby

Posted in art, culture, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on March 22, 2010

I MISS THIS!!! Lomo LC-A+, slide film

I have the best boyfriend in the entire world.

Posted in life, love, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on March 22, 2010

From over 10,000 miles away, he sends me lilies. Jamie, you’re incredible. I love you. 85 days!!

I AM SO EXCITED!!!!

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized, writing by tarantulatrash on March 22, 2010

I’m currently sitting waiting near my front door, as Jamie has informed me that someone will soon be knocking on it with a present. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!! And he is freaking out, because if they’re late, and I have to leave for work, the plan will be foiled. But I AM SO EXCITED!!!!! This photo is of Gianna. Lomo LC-A+, first roll I ever took. I was a little drunk, and every single photo came out moderately blurry.

Geoff

Posted in art, culture, life, love, melbourne, photography, venting by tarantulatrash on March 20, 2010

This is Geoff. I’m currently sitting on Geoff’s couch. I have no idea who took this photo. Geoff is incredible, and I can’t believe how lucky I am to have a friend like him. You should all praise him. Become his minions. I have to go to work now at the children’s hospital, I’m having a million yucks.

Addition- I found out that Chris took this photo. Yayyy Chris.

A walk with Oscar

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, Uncategorized, vintage by tarantulatrash on March 19, 2010

These are from my gorgeous english gentleman’s first ever roll from a Diana Mini, using Redscale film. They make me ridiculously excited about getting my own Diana… post from ebay takes too long!!! I love these photos. And his face.  Click this to see some of Jamie’s digital photography.

THANK YOUUUU

Posted in art, culture, fashion, indie, life, love, photography, street fashion, writing by tarantulatrash on March 19, 2010

I’ve hit 1000 views in 13 days! THANKS GUYS!!!!! And to show my appreciation, here is a very attractive  photo of me in my emergency hat.

90 DAYS

Posted in life, love, writing by tarantulatrash on March 17, 2010

There are only 90 days left, until I see Jamie again. I’ve never been one to count down to things, but this time it’s different.

Jamie lives in Leicester,  England. I live in Victoria, Australia. It’s possibly THE longest distance relationship two people could have. The last time we saw each other was the 3rd of January. He’s coming to Australia on the 15th of June. I have never been so excited about an event that is so far in the future.

Jamieeeeee come here nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

I miss England. I miss you.

But chilly, chilly is the evening time.

Cab Sauv

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, love, photography, weight loss by tarantulatrash on March 13, 2010

Edinburgh Castle, LC-A+, cross processed slide film.

I’m feeling less than great today, I’ve had half a bottle of cleanskins Cab Sauv and I’m thinking bed might be a good idea. Having the metabolism of a dead tortoise sucks. So does having a boyfriend who lives a 24 hour plane ride away. I miss him 😦

metamorphosis?

Posted in art, culture, life, love, photography by tarantulatrash on March 9, 2010

I’ve been cleaning out my old laptop, and some of the old photos of me are quite hilarious.  It’s amazing how much a person can change in a few years! So, this is me, circa 2004-now. Not in any real  order, obviously. And Jamie, thank you for thinking I’m gorgeous even when I’m sitting on the couch trying to grow back my stomach lining from the night before. My prince x
