Man we were playing charades the other day, and the word was “sex” which someone was acting out for our friend and she was thrusting and getting really into it and my friend just had no idea so eventually nick was like “It’s something you haven’t gotten in ages” and our friend said “sex” straight away almost instinctively. I don’t know why that was on my mind, but speaking of things people haven’t gotten in awhile, I know all the shorts are completely unavailable / sold out and everyone needs their fix, so I’m bringing back Summer Sundays again this Sunday featuring shorts, it’ll be every Sunday night at 8PM and each pair of shorts will only be available for 24 hours as either regular shorts, high waisted shorts or a skirt. It’s gonna be killer. Limited amounts available of each one. Also my launch party is this Friday night at OAF Gallery Bar at 8PM. It’s free entry, has a mammoth line-up of electronic artists / producers, and Max and I are gonna set up a pop-up store again in the glass cube to sell tees & shirts. Probably just the pre-made stuff though, everything else is custom made on order for whoever orders the item specifically. Anyway yeah it’s going to be a great night so you should all come. I don’t actually make any money from the events, all the money goes straight back to artists. I just do them to give smaller artists a chance to play to a crowded room which can be hard for them because the scene is run by bigger agencies a lot of the time who have a monopoly on pulling supports for bigger acts, etc. So come be a part of the crowd and check it all out. HOPEFULLY I can actually go on in the next Winter Launch next year and play too cos I’ve been jamming every monday with a couple friends under the name Tiger Raves. Wassup.

I just wrote this up on the spot again but I’ll see if I can get Angie to do up a drawing sooooon. In the meantime longtime label fan Laura was in hospital so asked for a T-Rex drawing to cheer her up so I drew this up for her. It’s super munted but get well soon Laura ^_^
Last Saturday night I ended up at a bar after kicking on from a gig and my friend messaged saying she’s fucked up at a warehouse party and feels like the female me. I then went through my phone notes, remembering that at the last one I went to, I ended up locking myself in the bathroom for an hour and writing poetry about the situation. I named the main poem “Midnight” apparently. I think I’m also a female version of me. It was a pretty funny night, one of our friends was sober and seemed to think the rest of us were, and at one point told me I’m just standing by myself dancing and look very strange, and I was like “IT’S FINE THIS IS WHERE I WANT TO BE IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW” and went back to dancing and he was like oh okay. Then we went outside onto the street with a group of new friends we made to go back to their place and he pointed at one of the girls who had a glass of wine on her and said “illegal” and everyone looked so confused. It was like the highlight of my night. We hadn’t even met her yet. Nothing says “Let us in to your house” like pointing out illegalities at 2AM. Illegalities at 2AM would be a great band name.
Also sorry to everyone hitting me up about the animal alphabet shorts, they’re totally sold out and unfortunately I will not be able to produce any more. Double also, everything is being mailed out today and tomorrow – I’ll need to email a couple people about fabric shortages, but at this point it looks like I’ll be getting more cat fabric elsewhere at a much higher cost and just sucking it up so I can get more of it out sooner, cos u guyz r ma world <3 . But I’ll let you know if you’re in that boat.

Shit you guys I’ve now made 123 blog posts- how exciting is that. Do you guys ever go back to the ones from like 2 years ago back when I was funny or the ones where I would start shit with people? I had my ex girlfriend yelling at me on FB chat over one of them back then. Legit. This was back when no one really read these things though. Also holy shit I’m no longer a university student. I remember the exact moment I dropped out of my construction degree and everyone was like “well fuck m8 you’ve fucked it up now” (All my friends at the time were inexplicably bogan) one time I woke up to my mum on the phone saying “Oh yeah, same. Yeah mine’s just a fucking failure. Just dropped out.” I was like “MORNING MUM!” Oh those were the days. Anyway speaking of failing you guys like REALLY like cat shorts. An unprecedented amount of orders have come through. I’m on a wholesale fabric account and everything and they can’t keep up either. So there might be a bit of a delay on them but hopefully the first batch are being sent out this week and the second batch next week. Then I’ll be able to make up a whole amount in advance and there won’t be any further delays which would be good. Also I didn’t realise how into high waisted animal shorts everyone is – Is anyone down for high waisted dog shorts? Cos you guys know if you want them I’ll make them for you. Just give me a holla. Also last thing – I’m dropping a promo video from the photoshoot tomorrow night at 8PM. It’s a bit of a joke thang with lots of fun dance footage of yours truly, miki, and our super talented photographer jocelyn. It’s pretty funny. I’m topless in a few shots. Just so you all know.
