    Hotties

    Luciano in Sydney and duty free fags, roll on December 
    Spring
    The new LEDS album amongst other things
    Finally listening to a mix and finding a song that speaks to you then and there (applebim – link on site somewhere)
    Cool flatmates
    Doing things for oneself one has been putting off, yes I washed
    Drinking
    Not getting wet in the constant showers

    Notties

    Duty Free fags from Fiji – love the old skool look but not the old skool tar levels… my lungs my lungs
    Trying to buy shorts in Auckland

  • Ben Jammin said:

    Haha! Had forgotten that inspirational poster. My outsider art MS Paint skills in full force!

    Hotness:
    Ames Fabric mix
    Sorting out a job in Japan and planning my return there.
    Making paper for the first time in months
    BMP dinner and dance last week. (Actually anytime ever that I eat takoyaki is hotness).
    BMP sessions tomorrow night.
    Bunch of new stuff on the ipod much thanks to various BMP team plus Tim (cheers for the Krautrock!)
    Having new records to look forward to for the first time in months.
    Russian Dj agency’s posting in the biggie lounge
    Replacing the plastic earbuds that came with my headphones with cut up foam earplugs and having it not only work but actually sound better! Possibly the first time ever I have fixed anything. I feel like an audiophile Macguyver.
    New seasons of the shield and entourage – breaking months long drought of no tv to watch.
    ‘American Movie’ – hilarious.
    Everyone escaping NZ

    Notness:
    Not getting to join the trans-tasman BMP team trip to Luciano.
    Not being in Japan in time for the labyrinth festival (http://www.mindgames.jp/future/index.html).
    The anti-drug restrictions at Labyrinth (see above link). Wouldn’t happen at splore! (mind you neither would that lineup).
    Actually having to work again. No more 11am wakeups. Massive downer.
    Getting a cold.
    ‘Tropic Thunder’ 3/10 – Robert Downey Jr can’t save this movie. Save it to download on a hungover rainy sunday.
    The ongoing dispersal of my group of friends to far away places.

  • Babling said:

    Hope this game isn’t just for card-carrying BMPers?

    Hot Stuff
    – The End of Study is Nigh
    – Spring is (mostly) upon us
    – Party funtimes (‘specially Atrackd last week, BMP Sessions, Deetron)

    Not-So-Hot Stuff
    – Study = Pain and Poverty
    – 8am lectures and other early morning starts
    – My precious Scootie on its last legs
    – Air travel to Sydney seeming rather expensive at the mo?

  • Ben Jammin said:

    Anyone can play!

    I had the idea that airfares had gotten cheaper recently but not sure.. It cost me a grand to go over a few weeks ago but that was at short notice and included 2 nights hotel in the cbd.

    Cool

    There is a half way house on Surrey Cresent that we drive past every morning for the `mentally strained’. Every morning at about 8am most of them are up and having a morning walk, hunched over, wandering slowly and aimlessly along the footpaths in worn clothes harming noboody. Its something I have grown to love watching, as they almost all look exactly like Zombies!!!

  • Benny said:

    Hotter than July

    -Rejoining the library
    -Tiritiri Matangi; excellent place, quality birds.
    -Raime, Demdike stare, the downwards and blackest ever black labels. The new wave of british dark electronica. TNWBDE! I was thinking of becoming a goth but Websta has advised against it.
    -‘Spartacus; gods of the arena’. Like the first season this was off to a slow start, but once again drew me in with its combination of storyline, litres of blood, and gratuitous nudity.
    -Making your own hamburger patties. Shouts to mick’s mum for the recommendation of adding steak sauce.
    -Turquoise jeep records. Keep the jeep rollin’!
    -‘Game of Thrones’ soon coming to HBO – a bit nerdy yes but I have read this series and looking forward to this adaptation.

    The Coldest Season
    -Earthquake, Tsunami and now issues with the nuclear power plant in Japan. I love Japan, and I’m gutted to see the extent of the devastation there. Hold tight Japan!
    -Being indecisive.. Should I go back overseas? Study more? Look for a new job? Try to move forward at this job? Procrastination rules.
    -Heading into autumn after 1 year of basically spring/summer+spring/summer. I want to stay warm!
