Hey everyone thanks so much for getting behind the new range. It really means a lot to see the same faces whenever I release new stuff and although I haven’t met a lot of you I feel we share a connection through you wearing my stuff on your body. That got super intimate. Anyway a few people asked why I didn’t do a launch party for the range this year. I decided to give it a miss for awhile because I just want to focus on the website and getting all your orders out and looking after everyone etc. Also I did a launch party for my music project Failr instead. Haha omg seconds before starting the set my drumpad broke so I had to play without it even though that was the basis of my whole set which was stressful but I got through it. Then I finished and a girl came up and asked if I could play Taylor Swift. I explained I finished my set and I’m not a DJ so she said come on just play Bad Blood. It took so long to get her to go harass the DJ’s on the other side of the room instead (Sorry DJs) then I left around 3 and someone on the street yelled shit at me for not going to Stereo aha I almost walked over and lectured them about how that starts fights but I figured fuck it. Anyway the point was thanks for all the support everyone I can’t express how much I appreciate it.

A dog, some birds & an old man all had the most hectic screaming match outside my window yesterday. It was so out of nowhere just WOOF WOOF SQUACK SQUACK SHUT UP SHUT UP all trying to be louder than each other. It was like my own personal reclaim Australia VS Anti-Racism rallies going on. I imagine the dog & birds had a stronger argument then the reclaim Australia campaigners did though. Anyway I went home to grab some things from my house and these birds were going ballistic. I’ve seen in internet comics that when they’re doing that they’re usually trying to get laid so I can only go off that logic. Double-checking with a reliable source to confirm what I say before posting it would be silly. I take all my journalism cues from Daily Telegraph. So yeah they’re stinging for it and meanwhile this dog was having none of it and barking as loud as possible in ruff defiance. Then the old man was absolutely losing his shit just screaming “SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP” and this went on at full velocity until I left my house again. I don’t even know where that dude came from, I’ve never heard / seen him around before. It’s like he was walking by and decided to stop everything to join this fight because I haven’t seen him since. Well that’s really the power of Straya isn’t it? We’re fighters. Dogs and birds yelling in my country? Don’t think so m8.
P.S The new range is dropping on Wednesday night make sure you’re there to check it out.

Aha so I went to Tokyo recently and that was cool. But oh man I was walking with one of the people from the Japan office I was visiting just super casually down the street. Actually people don’t really walk casually hey they just walk. I wonder if strutting is considered casual. I always wanted to try strut ever since that Simpsons episode where Bart scores a date and does the sickest strut. Anyway yeah so she happened to be female (pivotal mistake) and omfg this super awkward looking dude gives her the sleazy up and down very obviously then looks at me and does this creepy smile and nod of approval. Apparently he assumed we were dating or something. I actually thought to myself “.. fucking white people” as I shuddered. I briefly forgot I was white. Not even my most awks experience there. We thought it’d be cool to go to a “maid café” where the people serving you dress as maids. So we went up this lift with some people dressed as cats and then we got there and all these girls in outfits started squealing in unison. They made us sit down then blew some electronic candle on and started doing this combination of giggling and chanting. It was so intense. I was like hey I just want a beer or whatever but they said we had to do a package where we take photos with them and pay a million fees so we bailed to go to a normal pub. Old mate with the creepy smile would have loved it though. So yeah that’s my full report of Tokyo. Ahahaha sorry. It’s a really cool place though I wanna go back for longer.
