I’m feeling more and more alienated: I despise the materialism that is rampant today; the selfishness; the empty celebrity worship; the lawyer spin mentality and the disingenuousness that is everywhere; the mainstream media that both feeds and feeds off society, mirroring and perpetrating mediocrity and the yuppie values that have infested us.
The above is reflected in my T-shirt designs.
I write a blog, The Boomtown Rap
My other website is www.perthpunk.com
Perthpunk.com comprises a series of personal perspectives, pics and resuscitated recordings which make up an extensive insider history of the early Perth punk era (1977 – 78).
I’m a T-shirt designer, published writer, freelance copy-editor, songwriter, misfit and fallen romantic (which makes me a cynic, yeah). Essentially and paradoxically though, I remain an optimist.
I’m a food freak (not a foodie), love cooking and growing organic herbs and veges for the table – and no matter how badly the evidence is stacking up against me, I am not a hippie!
I love TV – trash and quality – but watch too much of it. Favourite shows: The Sopranos, Desperate Housewives, The Office (UK series), Curb Your Enthusiasm, Shameless, any rock documentary.
Into music…eclectic taste, but rock is my first love. Addicted to the computer. Play tennis (badly). Widely travelled, most recently to Malaysia, SE Asia’s unsung food paradise.
The sea is my sacred site.
One day I will write the novel I have been putting off forever. Or perhaps I won’t.
