THE TALE OF THE POOR ABANDONED UGLY COUCH WITH THE UNFORTUNATE UPHOLSTERY

I first stumbled upon the poor abandoned ugly couch with the unfortunate upholstery one morning on my walk to work. I felt sorry for it, it didn't choose that pattern, it was thrust upon it. It also didn't choose to be abandoned on a curb...


The next day as I passed by it had become apparent that the night had not been kind to the poor abandoned ugly couch with the unfortunate upholstery. It had suffered many indignities...



But then... SUDDENLY POLICE! Perhaps salvation was here for the poor abandoned ugly couch with the unfortunate upholstery...


But alas no, the poor abandoned ugly couch with the unfortunate upholstery was still there the very next morning...


But then, I was met with this! What had happened? Was this a crime scene? Had the upholstery bled onto the concrete and forensics taken away the footpath as evidence? Oh the humanity... or should that be couchmanity?!


Nope ... found it, cowering in a nearby lane way. Poor abandoned ugly couch with the unfortunate upholstery, what will become of you?


Edit: Okay, this sounded funnier in my head as it unfolded in front of me each day. So apologies if you just read through all of that lol.

SPACE IS TUFF

So we awoke this morning to images of the spectacular failure of the`Antares rocket on lift off, reminding us all of the risks involved in space flight. On the same day we received this photo via the rover Opportunity on Mars. Reminding us of the awesomeness of space flight...

THE HOOD # 296

Okay, time to blog again. I've been too busy carrying out an awesome (and fun) archaeological excavation at the WA Museum for the past 3 weeks. This has meant tired muscles, mind and early nights, so blogging has been far from a priority. 

But I have been instagraming

These are all from a most awesome wall on Olive St in Subiaco, the wall belongs to the Corner Gallery. So many pieces I may have to post them in two lots. So here's part 1...

Together let us all combine.

POST ZOMBIE APOCALYPTIC PERTH

So it seems that Perth is an apocalyptic zombie wasteland at 7am on a Sunday morning

I mean all it needs is Rick from The Walking Dead riding his horse down this street, amiright?


empty

Not a single person walking the streets with me

Ok so maybe no actual zombies but I did see these zombie crows eating polystyrene
... ok just normal crows, but they were angry

OUT WALKING YOU GET TO SEE STUFF

For the past few days and for the next few weeks I'm working in the city. This means I get to walk to work. I'm really enjoying it, so much better than crawling in traffic there and back. But you do get to see some cool and some odd things along the way...

WA Museum
Cool: My work space for the next few weeks
Nissen
Cool: An old Nissen Hut spotted out the back of the Swan Barracks on Francis St
Pink Cube
Cool: Inflatable cube for the Awesome festival in the cultural center
Igloo
Cool: Inflatable igloo for the Awesome Festival
Yummmm
Cool: This adverticing is the best, usually it's rolled up when the shop opens so you can only see it really early of really late in the day
Another
Odd: Another door okay? I'm not going to say which one, you figure it out (I counted 3 in that direction, your chances are fair to good)
Abandoned
Odd: "I'll just leave this here then yeah?!"
Siesta
Cool: I'm diggin this old school Hacienda style house number, you don't see them much anymore
Couch
Odd: or is it cool, Bus Stop with couches would be cool, but that pattern!

The Ballad of the Skeletons

The Ballad of the Skeletons

Stormie Mills has added to his piece titled The Passing of Freedom with a new sections titles The Ballad of the Skeletons.  From Stormie's Facebook page: 
The title of the work is a reference to the poem of the same name by the late Allen Ginsberg who became an unlikely MTV star when he collaborated with Paul McCartney and Philip Glass on the musical adaption of the poem. Ginsberg was keenly aware of the power of music and film in conveying his messages of social and political change with the video directed by Gus Van Sant.
