pink is the new black.

ok, so here's a fairly short post about my week with my mate Michelle. I actually took next to no photos for some reason, hence the short post. I've known Michelle for almost 10 years, and haven't really stayed in touch much, but saw her a lot when i was back in the UK which was awesome. She recently got married to the lovely Ash Ghoulmore (yeah, it's their real name..... here's proof!)

She was over for a trade show, selling her line of clothing: Kreepsville (we are now stocking a small run of stuff she had from the show, some come to the studio to see what i got!) All the toys and stuff she bought while we were out and about .... she had to make room in her suitcase!

After a night at Ned's to ease them all in, i took the girls out for ladies night. HOW MUCH PINK?! and no.... we didn't get dressed together, i came from my place, Michelle from her hotel, and Tish came from wherever she was staying. The lady in black.... was some weird tag along. we all had no idea who she was! (imposter!)

Tish is a little bit of a legend in the punk rock world.... 

here's a review for y'all (originally posted on THIS)

SIC FUCKS - Live: The Bowery Collection Need I say that this is best avoided for those with delicate sensibilities? The SIC FUCKS was one of the original CBGB/ NYC Punk bands of the 70s and featured Tish and Snooky, who were formerly BLONDIE’s back-up vocalists. This is obviously unrefined, raw Gutter Rock that mixes Punk, Glam and an early TALKING HEADS-esque experimental streak. All the warped, degenerate favourites are here: ‘St. Louis Sucks’, ‘Chop Up Your Mother’, ‘Teenage Abortion’, ‘Fags On Acid’ and a killer ‘Take Drugs’ to close. Thankfully, all the in-between song banter and obnoxiousness from the infamous Russell Wolinsky is left intact - which is as vital to a live SIC FUCKS recording as the songs. I was caught unawares by how vilely vibrant these songs still sound - and watch out for a killer Jazz trip-out take of ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’. The only negative is the generic packaging given by MVD to this series of CDs. As for the new breed of obnoxious rockers - you gotta lot to learn boys!! 

My camera has weird selective focus the drunker i get......liked Cayln and Michelle's zip though.....
Me with the cats from the Sourpuss stall( andy n cayln).... at none other than AMAZONIA . This was way later in the night on ladies night, after we'd had plenty of free champagne and free spirits, and we'd decided we'd rather pay for drinks and listen to some half decent music than slip further down the spiral that is the ladies night bar crawl.

Anyways, we did a lot of shopping n drinking, and drinking and shopping and managed to fit enough time to tattoo Michelle too! 

super cute and super fun to do. She likes Barbie, n she likes dead things, so i did this.... (and added some hearts and diamonds as some filler) tucked up right on the back of her upper arm.

it was cool having her stay at our place after the show too coz we had a few nights in front of the TV just watching movies....Zombieland was the top of the list coz we were all really eager to see it.

Gonna miss having her here, was really nice to have a friend over. But i got Pieman coming on the 4th, then Andy on the 6th so i'll manage til then!

So today was back to work as normal, but i managed to finish a little earlier than normal so i made the cup cakery in time! awesome!
