THIS COUPLE I SAW HANGING OUT AT GOLDEN PLAINS MADE ME YEARN TO BE YOUNGER. IT’S NOT LIKE I’M ‘OLD’ OLD, BUT I FEEL LIKE I’M ONLY A FEW YEARS SHY OF STILL BEING A PART-TIME HOSPITALITY WORKING DISAPPOINTMENT TO MY PARENTS. SHIIIIIIT.

WHEN I’M AT A FESTIVAL, SOMEONE IN THE GROUP I’LL BE HANGING OUT WITH WILL OFFER TO PAINT MY FACE. RELUCTANTLY I’LL AGREE TO A FEW CONSERVATIVE LINES. THEN SOMEONE ELSE STARTS SLAPPING BINDI’S ON YOUR FOREHEAD, AND SUDDENLY YOU START TO FEEL PRETTY DAMN RECKLESS. YOU’RE LIKE “YEAH I’M AT A FESTIVAL, NOT WASHING, WEARING RELIGIOUSLY SIGNIFICANT DECORATIONS UNAWARE OF THEIR TRUE SYMBOLIC MEANING…  JUST DOING WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT CAUSE THAT’S THE KIND OF COOL GUY I AM… I’M ALIVE!!!”. THEN BEFORE YOU GET TOO CARRIED AWAY WITH YOUR NEW LEASE ON LIFE, YOU SEE SOME OTHER PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DON’T GIVE A FUCK, AND YOUR TEMPORARY DELUSIONS ON HOW CAREFREE YOU REALLY ARE QUICKLY DISAPPEAR.

TIM

FOR THE TIME BEING, I THOUGHT I’D MOISTEN YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC PALETTE’S WITH A FEW SHOTS FROM GOLDEN PLAINS FESTIVAL EARLIER THIS YEAR. HERE’S A NICE ONE OF MY HOUSEMATE’S BOYFRIEND TIM ENJOYING A GLORIOUS SUNSET ON THE FIRST DAY.

LAST MONTH I GOT MY TAX REBATE, AND BY MY STANDARDS IT WAS FUCKING MAGNIFICENT. I FIGURED THE WISE THING TO DO WOULD BE TO BUY SOME CHEAP FLIGHTS OVERSEAS BEFORE I SQUANDERED ALL THAT SHIT ON SHORT SHORTS AND SUPER NINTENDO GAMES. SO YEAH, NOW I’M IN SRI LANKA, WHERE APPARENTLY THE INTERNET IS BETTER THAN IN NORTHCOTE, MELBOURNE. GO FIGURE. I DON’T REALLY WANT TO BE DICKING AROUND TOO MUCH ON MY COMPUTER WHILE I’M GONE, BUT YEAH, I MIGHT PUT UP A SNEAKY PREVIEW ONCE IN A WHILE. HERE’S ONE OF THE MANY COOL OLD DUDES WHO STOPPED ME IN COLOMBO INSISTING THAT I TAKE HIS PICTURE. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE IT DIDN’T TAKE MUCH PERSUADING.

I’VE FINISHED MY PHOTOS FROM SEOUL. SOME I AM QUITE FOND OF. OTHERS I CARE FOR LITTLE. NONETHELESS, AS I GATHER MY THOUGHTS AS TO HOW TO BEST CURATE THESE IMAGES ON THE INTER-WEB, I’VE UPLOADED A BUNCH OF THEM (ALONG WITH PORTRAITS FROM IRAN) ONTO AN ALTERNATE TUMBLR FOR THE TIME BEING. CLICK ON THE PHOTO ABOVE OR ON THIS TEXT IN BOLD (EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE) TO HAVE A LOOK, AND BY ALL MEANS, FEEDBACK IS VERY MUCH WELCOME.

YOON

YO SO PART OF THE REASON WHY I’VE BEEN FAIRLY INACTIVE ON THE BLOG OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS (MONTHS/YEAR IS ALSO FAIRLY APPLICABLE IN THIS CONTEXT) IS MAINLY DUE TO THE FACT THAT 4 MONTHS ON, I’M STILL WORKING ON MY PHOTOS FROM SOUTH KOREA. HOPEFULLY THEY’LL BE AVAILABLE SOON ONLINE FOR BOTH YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE AND MY OWN PERSONAL CLOSURE. IN THE MEANTIME, HERE’S A PHOTO I TOOK OF YOON, A CYCLING ENTHUSIAST FROM SEOUL, CHILLING UNDERNEATH A BIG ASS BRIDGE.

GLEN

THIS PORTRAIT OF GLEN AND HIS DOG REMINDS ME OF SOMETHING YOU’D SEE ON HUMANS OF NEW YORK. THEIR CONVERSATION WOULD BE LIKE…

ME: WHAT’S YOUR DOG’S NAME?

GLEN: COURAGE

ME: AND WHY’S THAT?

GLEN: BECAUSE HE SAVED ME FROM A FIRE… TWICE. AND HE HAS CANCER.

RACHEL

IT SORT OF GOES WITHOUT SAYING, BUT I’VE REALISED THE LONGER THE GAP BETWEEN WHEN I TAKE A PHOTO, TO TIME I UPLOAD AND CAPTION IT, THE HARDER IT IS TO ARTICULATE HOW I ACTUALLY FELT ABOUT THE WHOLE THING. I GUESS THAT’S WHY GUYS LIKE THE SARTORIALIST AND HUMANS OF NEW YORK USE SHORT CUTS LIKE ‘ON THE STREETS…’ OR ‘SEEN ON…’ ETC. SMART MOVE. MAYBE I SHOULD DEVELOP MY OWN LITTLE “I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING TO SAY” SCHTICK, TO HELP ME ALLEVIATE SOME OF THE PRESSURE OF TRYING TO THINK UP SOMETHING QUIRKY AND ORIGINAL TO SAY ABOUT EACH SUBJECT. MAYBE SOMETHING LIKE ‘SNAPPED THIS SHIT ON…’? OR I COULD TRY SOME SUBLIMINAL SELF-PROMOTION/BRAND REINFORCEMENT WITH ‘COLLECTED AT…’ AND SO ON. I’LL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT. ANYWAYS, NOT TO DEVIATE FURTHER, RACHEL WAS A GOOD SPORT, I REMEMBER THAT! MORE SHOTS ON THE MELBOURNE CENTRAL FACEBOOK PAGE.

I’D DO BAD, BAD THINGS TO HAVE STANLEY’S NBA JACKET (THE PHOTO DOESN’T DO IT’S AWESOMENESS FULL JUSTICE UNFORTUNATELY, YOU’LL HAVE TO LOOK OUT FOR HIM YOURSELF). MORE SHOTS ARE UP ON THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE SO HAVE A LOOK AND DO SOME ‘LIKING’ IF YOU SEE FIT.
