Who was at your show in Sydney, Ed?

Image Description Here
Well I'm glad you asked. Clint Peterson happened to be in the neighborhood, as was the enigmatic Mike O'Meally, who also has a great website.

Pissed because I ordered penne pasta and got spaghetti instead. All I ever ate as a kid was freakin' spaghetti.

BATS! Sydney is loaded with them!

Image Description Here
We saw these huge bats when we went to Featherdale... But these Bats, called Grey-Headed Flying-Foxes are easily seen anywhere in Sydney. They hang upside down in the trees at the Royal Botanical Garden in the daytime and fly at dusk to feed on fruit elsewhere in the city. While walking around at night, you can see them lurking in the trees, some closer than others. Their bodies are seriously as big as a cat.

Circular Quay was pretty at night

Image Description Here
Circular Quay is in Sydney Cove, home of the famous Sydney Opera House, and is pronounced 'key' not 'kway' like you might think. We went on a digi-cam photo-fest like the mega-tourists we were. Here is a sweet one of the city skyline, and one of Deanna. Then I tried to shoot one of myself. We took Jim Houser to see this spot for his first time.

We wanted to see some of OZ's fauna

Image Description Here
But we didn't want to go to a zoo. So I looked up Featherdale Wildlife Park, which still had animals in cages and was a bummer, but also had a lot of free roaming animals, and does some conservation work. Plus it wasn't far from Sydney. So I rented a car, and did my first ever driving on the wrong side of the road. (wrong for us seppos) Austin was real amped to get a close look at a Koala Bear. Of course Deanna thought they were adorable. And I thought it was cool how this little guy didn't give a crap about us, and slept through our whole visit.

I'm Back home from Australia...

I'm in a vortex of time, lived one day twice, and then slept for 15 hours straight, somehow snapping right back into my nocturnal sleep pattern that I was hoping to change! Morning is 3 in the afternoon, dammit.

I have craploads of photos, I shot 29 rolls of film, and 621 digi-photos, so as I process this stuff I will post them and tell the stories. I did in fact hang out with a wallaby, as shot here by Jim Houser. I also hurt myself skating, which ruined the skate part of my trip. I felt like a loser as I walked around being a tourist while the Emerica guys were out in the 90 degree weather trying to skate. Serendipity is in the air...

Sydney was great! And the opening went off...

Image Description Here
There were ludicrious amounts of people there, some to see artwork, and many to get some free beers.
The cops came to bust up the handsome young Sydney people up off the streets, and move them along into other more mainstream drinking establishments.
We had a great time in Sydney, checking out the bats that lurked all around at night, and the Shark-Rays in the aquarium with artist Jim Houser who does lots of Toy graphics, and Austin and Deanna...
Lots more to come later (when I get home...)

Going to Australia for 17 days...

Image Description Here
Going for 2 reasons. #1: to take part in The Invasive Embrace group art show at the Monster Children Gallery in Sydney. And #2: To film for the Emerica video in Melbourne.

I may be a bit spotty with posting stuff, but I will try while on the road.
Here is 1--2--3--4-- photos of my new shoe...

Ran into Scott Pommier and Raymond Pettibon...

Image Description Here
Although I only got photos of Scott, who sometimes looks like Guy Pearce, although this time he had on some new glasses. He was wielding great electric power, as it was almost a full moon. He shot beams at me, and Karate chopped some at me too. Raymond I saw standing on a corner in Santa Monica, and stopped to say hello. He gave me his address and said to stop by anytime!
