kiss with a fist

hello hello
so the internet is still really slow, its pissing me off, but only a few more days and it will be back to normal, i have also discovered 20 rolls of film that need to be developed, a few 120 and the rest are all 35mm, but i can wait to discover the photographs in them, who knows whats in them. gosh i forget what i capture, but that's why i love analogue because once u develop them you find hidden treasures you never knew u had or had forgotten you had.. hahaha simple things make me happy, they do i promise..
its been a random week, not much been happening, but its been good, friends came over for dinner on friday, gosh i had forgotten how much i enjoy cooking. cooking for your self is boring i must say, its better when you share that moment with someone else and when there is wine involved offcourse. i do love VINO i have to confess... specially red wine... oh joy joy joy...

its finally freezing here down under, winter is finally upon us, arghh the wind is just horrible... but its sunday today and in a few hours i shall be going to a flea market, oh how i love them dearly. cant wait to find something burried upon piles of others ppl's crap. hahaha another joy joy joy... i shall be going down to tasmania in the near future which also makes me happy. not sure the dates yet, but i cant wait to give the monkey a big big hug... its also my birthday on the 9th, gosh 24, what a crazy age, its insignificant. right before the big 25 and to be honest that number gives me the creeps, 24 not 25. i dont like the number 4 its creepy in a way i cant really explain...

anyways i shall go and take a shower now. its 10 to 7 in the morning and my friend will get here in a matter of minutes plus my internet will die soon. 7oclock comes and i go back to slow slow dialup. fucking broadband and its usage limits, only a couple of days, tho its been good, i have ralised how much i am dependent on the net now days, to communicate, to research and to explore. hahahaha lets go out and play yes lets go out and play... play play play outside kids... go out and smell the trees, flowers, the wind and soak up the light....

till next time..
yours truelly
ana banana..


i end with florence and the machine-kiss witha fist..

this polaroid reminds me of times of crazy conversations, crazy moments and magical sensations

So my internet i think is over the limit, which means that broadband becomes like a really slow dialup connection, does anyone else remember the shitty dial up connections, gosh, it takes for ever for anything to load up. it sucks, so i guess i wont be using the internet much until we either 1. pay and get it back to normal, 2. let it be and wait till the bill comes and 3. use the internet from 3am to 9am where it becomes normal agian.. hmm i think ill go for number 2... so thats it, hope everyone is having a great time.. lolenjoy and speak and see u yall soon.... ANA BANANA.

Dazed and Confused.

So today was an interesting day, i told u guys i cleaned my room, hahah well today i brought a brand new vacuum(that word looks so dirty to me)cleaner. gosh i am becoming tidy, what is happening to the world, its nice tho, but my room seems so empty and big and its freaking me out, tho i am happy its clean. tomorrow we have a house inspection and my fucking landlord will be tagging along with the real state, gosh that woman gets on my nerves. imagine if you will the mother in the movie Requiem For A Dream. that's my landlord tho a little bit worse, she is a nosy bitch, who thinks she is the bomb who annoys the fuck out of me, but because i dont take shit from her, and i speak back to her(she talks and talks and never lets anyone else say a word) well i am the one who always sees her, i think the rest of my housemates are afraid of her. to be honest i cant be fucked with her either. oh did i mention when she speaks, she speaks int he third person, its the most comic thing.. so yes she is coming tomorrow, and oh my, my day is just wonderful because of that. hahaha

So apart from buying a vacuum cleaner today, i painted something wonderful today, i think i will apply for an exhibition (a post card one). for those who don't know, for those kinds of exhibitions the works have to be 30x30x30 no bigger, so i might enter 3 works, two paintings and one photograph. or maybe even mix media, i don't know yet, i have until next week, and its one of the gallery spaces i like. so should be good if i do...
I also cleaned the front garden today(yes i know who is this, Ana cleaning, no way hahaha)... it was a nice day, tho i think there was something in the air all day, i was feeling uneasy, nervous or something for no reason. actually there is a lot happening with my life, things that i rather not get into, but i am happy. and i have no fucking idea why. i like this euphoric feeling to be honest...

Its blossom awesomes bday on saturday the 23rd, and oddly enough she turns 23. hahah gosh that girl means the world to me.

In other news i really miss my monkey tho, which maybe is what is making me uneasy. but i know that he is thinking and missing me too, so that calms me down.. life is just the way it is and time is needed for us both to grow, learn and most importantly BE... its just i miss my best friend u know. gosh its wierd how close we got so quickly. its like we always new eachother somehow.sometimes i still cant believe it.

Anyways i think thats it for now. i better be going. but like always i will leave you with the song of the day.

love always, be safe and watch out for that monster under your bed..

Lived in Bars

I’ve decided that the title of each entry should be the title of a song, after all a lot of my work is named after name of songs. I’ve noticed a lot of people though this. Who knows why? Its one of those things that really intrigues me

Today i cleaned my room, and i found many buried treasures. i had totally given up on the idea of finding my favorite pair of sun glasses, I thought i had lost them on some crazy adventure, but no i found them, buried under a lot of more forgotten things, such a pencils, pens, coins, scarf and books. Man I own a lot of books, book of all kinds of things, I’ve fallen in love with books all over again I think. I wish I read more when I was younger. It’s something I regret. But then again I was dips in oils and inks from head to toe, through my fingertips and all over my clothes. Poor mom, I remember her telling me off because I had made a mess, but then she would always tell me, go paint, go do your thing. So I did… something else I thank my parents is for not influencing us into watching TV or playing with electronic things, at home everything was about culture, art, sports, and the outdoors, I only wish that when we moved to indo, we had more nature around us, that’s another thing I would of wanted. But then again look at me know, I appreciate it even more.

I am really into cat power today, she has such a fantastic voice, her lyrics and her rhythm just melts my heart. it makes me Happy, she makes me happy, music makes me happy.

Here i am today

One thing i enjoy the most,is to sit somewhere, or lay somewhere, look up and see the clouds move. i can seriously do this for hours and hours. just give me a clear sky and some clouds and you have me hooked.

i would love to own a plant like this.

take me back where i belong.

so yes i love clouds.

and collecting slides, random slides, i go into 2nd hand shops and find them, or while walking down the street, like i did these...

I found this awesome gallery space the other day while walking with some friends around the city, we where on an Art Quest that day and i think i fell in love with MELBOURNE all over again, and i cant really understand how that could even be possible because i have never fallen out of love with Melbourne, i guess its just ive re discovered how much i actually love this place.. yes that's it....

anyways i better leave everyone, ive taken enough of your time, but thanks for giving me 5 minutes of your busy busy day....

p.s i end like always with the song of the day.this one is it for today, because cat power rocks my world..
Adore this song (copy past)

First day of my Life

Hi gosh its been a while,
what have i been up to?
well to be honest ive been stuck like glue to my work. painting, drawing, sketching, taking photographs, writing, music and jumping among a few more crazy things...
how about you?

Espy Tripping

Espy tripping
karl back in feb, dancing to a beautiful live band.

Do you like tea with milk or without milk? i like it without, excapt chai tea, which obviously wont be a chai without the milk. last night with a friend, we went into an indian place and orderd tea. they brought us some crappy english breakfast/earlgrey tea with milk and bubbles. it was so gross, i was waiting for some nice tea. no that did not happen.

I am always happy when it comes to moonlight sessions.

Train spotting

The muse... enough said, that person in two days brought me back from a place i rather not go back to.. i dont know him well but i thank him always.

Walking, i have alot of photographs of my feet, why well because i love feet, and not in a fetish kind of way, but more in a admiring way, i like to take photographs of feet. show where i am going or/and where i've been.

'Yarra tripping'
Something i love doing. this activity includes,sitting by a river,sea,beach,mountain,forest,garden etc... friends, sun, camera, beer, smokes, book(if alone) and sketchpad. always.

Dancing in circles is one of my favorite thigns to do too. it blows my mind..

I do enjoy collecting leaves, plants and seeds. flowers too, dry them up and make a collage.

I wish i lived near there.. i would never leave, one day.

Love climbing trees.

Thats it for now i think, so till next time. have a good night sleep, soak up the sun as much as you can, dance, drink, laugh, love, eat, jump,sing, walk, learn and fly as high and much as you can...

Oh before i go, listen to this song..
