This country doesn't belong to us,
we belong to this country.

I'm so honoured that the guys from Hoodlum Shouts wanted to use some of my photos for their new 7" Guns Germs Steel, launching this Friday at the Pot Belly ahead of their debut album early next year. The images are from an old post concerning my old man. While it's not obviously apparent, I think the tone and backdrop of that essay correspond to the subject matter of the songs really well. These guys are without a doubt, one of the most promising, musically intrepid groups to come out this town in a long while, and are hands down becoming one of my favourite bands in general. It doesn't hurt that they are also some of the most lovely, genuine dudes your ever likely to meet. As is often the case for groups of this caliber, the true intensity and energy of their music is best appreciated live, so I can only stress that you should get your ass out to Belconnen or one of their other shows in the coming days and rock the fuck out! Here is an old clip filmed by my good friend Jhat to get you psyched. See you there!

Sophie & Oskar

A few photos I took for my good friend Sophie earlier in the year when she was very pregnant.

I happy to say that her and Toby are now the proud parents of one of the cutest babies I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Little Oskar Allen is growing so fast its almost unbelievable, all the while chewing on empty beer cans and anything else he can his hands on, and puking into my hair whenever he gets the chance ;).

Congratulations on an awesome little human guys!
