Lazy Sunday

I also bought A clockwork orange, a book on micheal X, Patti Boyd and a book on feminism in Australia.
so far I've read into Micheal X and man it's such a dead read, I recommend it greatly - especially if you're into British cultural history.
I've also been playing this Billy Cotton record on repeat that I found at a garbage store. It's great quality and I have recently been obsessed with twisting to Billy Cotton and the Beatles 'Meet the Beatles' record - early, buddy holly stuff.

I love these shots - the hair, the make up, the rock n roll bikini!

On Saturday in Sydney the colour parade is happening! Organised by a friend of mine, the colour parade is 'A gathering of kook and beauty, colour (and neutral tones) absurdity + fearless expressions of joy' If you're in the area, come along! It'll be a riot! (not a literal riot.. we don't want any trouble ya hooligans!) Facebook: Colour Parade!

It's my life and it's my wife

This past year I have been completely fascinated with herion addiction. I think my fascination stems from the idea of destroying ones-self from the inside out, and how much addiction can control a person's life. In episode 12 season 4 of Mad Men, the show touches on the prominence of heroin addicts in sixties New York. In the 60s, coming from a decade of prozac-nation, heroin as well as LSD were still quite 'new' mainstream drugs. People were only starting to become aware of the effects of heroin addiction. However it was extremely prominent in New York at the time. Reading this analysis of the Mad Men episode, I became aware of this LIFE article highlighting the life of two heroin junkies in New York in the sixties.

I would give my left tit to old copies of LIFE magazines

The Endless Summer

 It will be summer here in Sydney soon...

Brad Elterman photography

My blog has been about photographers an awful lot lately? I guess it's kind of because I find real people so fascinating, especially photographers. In Brad Elterman's tumblr blog and website, he posts a selection of images coupled with some really cute antidotes about the photographs. Next year, I'm taking a course on Media and Journalism and a practical arts course, but I feel like I should now swap over to doing a photography course. 70s photographers are so inspiring!

Brad Elterman's career started in 1974, at the age of 16 with a photo of Bob Dylan performing on stage. He quickly became a well-known hollywood photographer, running around the rock scene photographing the likes of The Sex Pistols, Queen and Joan Jett.
Brad Elterman was able to tour with rock-stars and was a photographer for popular rock magazines such as Creem, Rolling Stone and Rock Magazine. source

Rolling Stone Fans

Here are some of my favourites of the Joseph Szabo Rolling Stone fans photography collection
What I love most about these images is how timeless they are. Even today, the rock concert phenomena has remained unchanged and these images look as though they could belong in 2011 just as much as they are from the 70s. My favourites are the couples images and the hair of course. But I have to say the second last image with the bearded man in a leather jacket is my favourite

Bad Bitches with Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg's facebook updates are so gold, if only I was so lame as to actually use the weird facebook subscription tool.

Cape Town

last Dec-Jan my family took a trip to visit family in Cape Town and Europe. Before Australia my family lived in South Africa for 3 generations, after moving to Europe and Australia. Prior to living in South Africa, my family lived in Jewish Shtetls in Lithuania.. I find it really fascinating because the Lithuanian Jewish community had different laws from regular Lithuanians and lived quite traditional lives.
Here are some photos from my Cape Town trip:
