All eyes on ACMI

Hey hot shot, how're things moving along?

Sorry I haven't written here in a while, all my writing has been going into my Honours essay thesis thing. Maybe I'll talk about that some other time but for now I just wanted to quickly remind you that today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Ha, no just kidding, that's just a nice piece of hacky wisdom, what I actually wanted to quickly remind you is that today is the first day of the 
Channels Australian Video Art Festival. 

Very excitingly, Nightly News, the song I wrote the lyrics for that was then performed by my beloved friend and favorite Melbourne musician Nelson Walkom, has been selected for the Festival.

Apparently they got over 700 entries so for ours to be one of the 30 or so works selected is just totally amazing.

But so yeah, this Thursday evening, (September 19), you're invited to please come see a whole bunch of short works of video art on the great big screen at ACMI, (The Australian Centre for Moving Image).

The video's kick off at 6pm, click here to book tickets, I'm really looking forward to it. You should definitely come along. 

In other news, here's a drawing I did on the train of a mother and daughter.
Well, I like to pretend they were mother and daughter, although in reality they've probably never even looked at each other.

While I've briefly got your attention, the show at Moana that I mentioned in the last post is still on until September 28, so there's 11 days left to check that out if you happen to be in Perth.

I went over for the show and I had a fun week in Perth, but it's nice to be back in Australia.

Ha, oh and hey, one more thing, remember I still collect shopping lists so if you have one or find one please send it my way.

But so anyway, thanks heaps reading and I hope everything's going good.

To finish off this blog post here's a particularly good list that I found on the weekend. It almost functions as a little ready-made poem. It might even be exactly the kind of wisdom to live the first day of the rest of your life by.
