Vincent Bakkum

Vincent vincent vincent I wish I had the balls to try and use your designs in my sketchbook, your drips are sublime

Oh I nearly swooned when I saw he'd painted this beautiful chicken..
thankyou to G for introducing me to this man via that 60 illustrators thing you put up X


At the mo I'm going through a phase and just can't get enough of John Mayer and Simone White, it's probably because they are uber relaxing (step away Mumford and Sons, I don't need your drama!) John Mayer just makes me think of chocolate, his voice is just mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm and more. Simone's voice is almost unbearably soft but her lyrics seem to jar it a bit so it's not all sweety sweety, it's kind of dark and humorous, like these are some lyrics from Victoria Anne:

got a hiding and a licking
and a seeing to
boy my butt was sore
was your butt sore too

Oh its so good

Facebook is sucky, it allows everyone to know everything about you without asking. It's passive and passive is not good. Loads of people say like, oh it helps you keep in touch but seriously?? No. It doesn't at all, what it actually does is allow you to passively watch someone's life. Not only is that slightly creepy but it's unneccessary and at times pretty frustrating, say you want to speak to someone on chat, what's the point, you can already have a pretty good outline of their life just by scrolling the home page, and you know that the conversation is going to go something like (no matter who they are)

'how are you?'
'good thanks, how are you?'
'fine. What you up to?'

and blah blah blah you know the drill. I really don't care how you talk to me, it could be 'how many bananas have you eaten this week then?' just summin else for christs sakes. Go ahead, make people smile, doesn't even matter if it's a kind of 'ohmygodyouarefrickingcrazy' smile its better than just sitting there making mindless small talk to a computer screen.

.. also I realise how hypocritical this is because I'm kind of broadcasting this via computer but I don't think many people look at my bloggery soo I feel I can say what I like :) its good maan. I must say actually if you don't have a blog do try it out, it's a lot freer than facebook, for reasons I can't fathom xx


I can't choose which one to do!!
