Wigging Out

…Arno is from Liechtenstein… he visits NZ whenever he can…he likes Dunedin music…before he came to visit me he dropped in on the venerable Roi Colbert and as Arno had a bit of a cold he decided to wear a mask so as not to infect the vulnerable old fellow  with his nasty bugs….the mask was still round his neck when he arrived here…IMG_1525

…and you just know I’m gonna use my powers of persuasion when confronted with stuff like this….

…and I did.

 

 

…in other news…

…anyone able to explain why three people in purple wigs need to climb a tree with a giant rubiks cube, please inform the proper authorities.

Bored With PinStripes

…those little fat floaty guys were getting a little repetitive….they needed a more challenging wardrobe…something to alleviate the eye-crushing boredom of doing all those parallel lines…

…I’ve always wanted to own a Nudie suit… (to hang in my closet, of course, no self respecting black hoodied,jeans and t-shirt wearing record shop guy would actually wear a Nudie suit…in public…)…

…guess this is as close as I’ll ever get.

Bloody Tourists

…will take pictures of damn near anything!…

…here’s Jasper, from Hamburg, Germany , taking a snap of the rubber stamp I use to brand the bags that you take your Too-Tone  Records purchases  home in…IMG_0914

 

…his reasoning being that his GF, a print maker whose works require her to walk up and down on them to make the finished article, would have an easier artistic life if she employed this technique…

…not quite sure how walking up and down on a rubber stamp will make it easier (less wear and tare on her shoes?) but I’m always happy to share technological advances with all who ask.

 

(Hi Jasper, Hope you made it home safe and sound….regards to Marie….see you both next time you’re in town)

Found Art

…haven’t mentioned my favourite shopping destination for quite some time…

…lets hear it for the Tip Shop… provider of momentary pleasure from other folks trash…

…or, if you’re there at the right time, source of retro wall coverings…

…in oil…

…or ceramic….

…or wood and fibre…

…or, if you’re lucky, acrylic on silk…

…they only come in shades of blue and brown though….

…at these prices you cannot complain and should organise your decor accordingly.

Lost-One Dread Head

…don’t want to freak any one out or anything but I’ve misplaced my good friend Jungle Fari….

…he’s not exceedingly dangerous unless you’re a good cup of coffee or an organic vegetable…but don’t make any sudden movements just to be on the safe side….IMG_0197

 

…this is the most recent photo I have of him…his hair is probably longer by now….(nice shirt)

…the last three times he’s called to say he’s gonna visit, he hasn’t turned up…

…so if you see him… maybe give him some clear instructions of how to get to the shop…(you might want to enunciate clearly and gesture a bit as his hearing is suffering from him being a world famous DJ…)

…it would be nice to see him again…he’s a top bloke.
