Black Celebration

Ok ... as my readership is virtually nil, I guess it doesn't matter if I haven't done an entry for such a long time. Firstly, work is driving me mental and making me depressed, so is the fact that I have put on weight and can't fit into my favourite pair of cords (oh mama!!) and that I seem to have had a mini pimple outbreak on my forehead, and that I don't have comprehensive insurance so damage to my car is not covered, and I seem to be getting dizzy spells every now and then ... RIGHT! We've cued the bloody violins, they've played some scratchy mantovani riffs, we've paid them and they have left the building .. SO now we can get back to some kind of sanity.

Firstly, me and M went to the Brisbane Ranges recently and took some photos of the Anarki Gorge. Please see below. Pretty happy with the results, considering I'm not even close to being a novice at this whole photography shit, and that I'm using just an old Olympus digi camera ... no bells or whistles whatsover ... just point and shoot:
You can actually walk along the stream bed thanks to Victoria's current drought conditions, and most of the bush has been desecrated by fire ... still its quintessential victorian bush ... harsh but beautiful at the same time.

Secondly, I am re-aquainting myself with Depeche Mode's Black Celebration. I remember that at the time it came out I found it tinny and uninspiring and the artwork to me was derivative and lazy. But really could you blame me, the preview to this release was "Its called a Heart" ... enough said!!! Ah but for the privilege of hindsight ... I love it to bits now ... and you should too!!

Now I was tempted to grab Bjork from Polyester (non-ltd edition) but I gritted teeth and abstained ... I want the full Limited Edition Experience ... and from the tracks I've heard so far ... this could potentially be album of the year for me ... until the Radiohead release of course.
