True Blue

(Dis is me n my cacti hangin out)
Richard Ayoade and I share the same favourite colour: blue foreverandever.

Recently, I went to a top garden in Cornwall with lots of cacti and huge aloe plants and hanging vines and a little waterfall which was so lovely; there was also a Richard Turrell art installation that consisted of a circular white room with an oval hole in the ceiling that you could stare up at, and it was super cool (white photos below). 
Life iz sad tho because I have exams and my film photos all scanned in green which is gross, so I think my scanner is still broken.. </3

Oh but also the most amazing thing happened.. I went to a FREE PEACE GIG on Thursday in Pimlico with a friend which was so so amazing, because it was the third time I have seen them live and I they are getting better and better each time. We queued outside the venue for 2 hours in the grey rain until suddenly the doors opened and we piled into the stifling basement. There was no stage, just microphones on the floor, so I was only a metre away from dearest Harrison and Doug for their hour long set, which contained new gems such as 'Money' and 'World Pleasure', along with classics such as 'Wraith' and 'Bloodshake'. Doug did his little dance while he played and then he momentarily held my hand at the end when I reached out to him, while Harrison crooned to the crowd "baby, ur out of my league". It was the greatest gig I've ever been to and I can't wait to see them in summer again. Peace have become super funky from what their new material sounds like, and I really really really love them.

  3. Blue. A great colour, and I think the main reason I love it is because of Joni Mitchell, cause that album is just dynamite. I really love the way you made the colour into an outfit, because it feels like you're embodying the colour, and it's just so aesthetically pleasing. Your journal makes me forever envious, because you can make it look so wonderful with the layering of drawings, and the way you incorporate colours is friggen amazing. The layouts are sick, the drawings are incomparable. I love it so much, and I love seeing other people's journals. So *`~~*magical*``~*.

  6. Dude! I went to that peace gig. I got into the second one, though. It was so mad. I was so damp. I also just bought Ghost World, which I now plan to lend to EVERYONE I know. I love the way you journal. I feel like it really embodies ( what I imagine to be, which I piece together from your blog) you and your 'style'. Super friggen big love to you!
