Swooning tonight over the latest Röyksopp offering. The album is called The Inevitable End, Whilst I'm smiling at this album the name suggests why that smile is tinged with sadness. They've announced it will be their last one. Gutted.
Fresh collab in Little Parry st with Kyle Hughes Odgers, Martin E Wills, Hosae, Ayres, Daek William and Pures. I couldn't get all of the panels because of the construction workers and their truck, hopefully later.

|Vince Guaraldi - b.1928 - d.1976 (aged 47) too soon|
Such a smooth jazz trip, check it out, you might like it. From there I discovered the album they did for the Peanuts special, it's now my go to Christmas album and it's très cool and not as christmasy as you might think...
Starting a series of black and white photos from some heartland states in the USA. Mostly Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona and New Mexico. I travelled through these places back in January 2012. This section of this amazing country truly fascinates me, so much of it abandoned and like Route 66 (the path we followed) now a past glory. I'm not sure how many parts this series will be so strap yourself in.

There's a really nice photo spread posted earlier this year over at Lenscratch. It's some early 35mm photos of a gritty Detroit in 1972 by Dave Jordano. Some examples below but click the link above for the rest.

I've been following Jarrad Seng on Instagram for quite a while now, if you aren't then you really should be, he's an awesome photographer. His feed is here. But a few weeks back he did something different, he dressed up as Steve Aoki and wandered around Stereosonic for 3 hours, the results are brilliant...

Following on from Saturday's Cax One v Dolus, the next day Cax teamed up with Jeks and Jerome to work on the remaining part of the wall. I was lucky enough to join them for a few photos again...

Such a huge week and weekend spent watching my girlfriends brother, Cax One, paint and a multitude of other tasks, that I haven't found time to post the awesome new wall in Leederville. The artist is Fintan Magee and it's along the Vincent St side of the Luna Cinema...

I was lucky enough to hang with two cool graf artists today, Cax One and Dolus. Cax is family visiting from Ballarat and Dolus is a really cool dude I've had the pleasure of meeting this past month. Seeing as Cax was visiting us I hooked him and Dolus up to do a paint. They got down to it last night and today. So I dropped in and snapped a few pics...

Walking up my street yesterday and spotted this love message/cry for help. Maybe the cement dried before anyone could respond. Clearly a Shakespearean level love/tragedy/romance/drama fest playing out in my hood...
not your usual "Davo 2/07/09" kind of concrete graff

My girl texts me this pic today, she took it while roaming some dingy back alley in the city with her brother, looking for street art was their excuse. I'm starting to wonder what the hell they were really doing in there...

And the walls came tumbling down
There used to be a cinema in Fremantle along Adelaide St, I vaguely remember it. Last week that building was torn down, no great loss, it was an ugly building with no redeeming architectural features whatsoever. Standard 70's quick brown brick pop up stuff - note that I do like 70's architecture. What is sad is the lane way wall at the back of it that had some cool pieces by Sofles, Hosae, Social Club and Fintan Magee (to name a few) on it, now crumbled under the wrecking ball.
Also I just noticed that this is the 300th blog post in this series (The Hood) sad that it has to be about the destruction of the old and not the usual celebration of the new.
