Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (and car maitenance).

I keep seeing Peter O’Donoghue around Sydney. Well twice. Once on the train going home from the movie then coming out of Newtown Dendy as I was going in. Must talk to him next time to say how wonderful this all is.

Russell Senior missing in action.

Scrap that, just won tickets to see Pioneer + Q&A with Jonathan Lapaglia. Anthony’s little bro. Awesome times.

the the on Later with Jools Holland

Jools Holland: I was lucky enough to record (coughs or sumting?) a track with the the ah some years ago and now it will be my pleasure to accompany them with it. Uncertain Smile and the the.

Jools Holland’s lack of interview skills is forgiven because of this. Sometimes it is my most favourite bit of music ever.

World Record Club - Australia

In Australia more than 3000 covers were produced - and such was the purity - no matter how diverse the designs or the subjects displayed, are immediately recognisable as World Record Club covers.

This body of work, produced in just two decades, remains a snapshot of the Australian independent studio design industry at its genesis - and in the post vinyl era of digital on-line marketing absolutely unrepeatable in style, quality and originality.

Taken/appropriated from Geoff Hocking’s ‘It’s Another World Record - Album Cover Art 1958 - 1976’ book.

The Designs are over 40 years old - but still so modern in their execution. It has woken my interest in Design again - I work as a Designer but the last few years I have just been going through the motions. I could do it with my eyes closed. The passion is returning.

Faithless. 

David: When I think about how I behaved - all these years later - I’m filled with……shame. There’s no other word. Now that she’s …gone, I can see…too late, that she didn’t betray me, I betrayed her in the most despicable way. I let her down… at the most important moment in our life together. She said “Can’t you understand, be a little kind?” “It hurts.” But I was beyond reason. I spent the night furiously interrogating her. When I think about it…and I often do…it’s like…film images, clearly etched, and the lines…I suffer from something called retrospective jealousy.

Yves Saint Laurent (2014)

Hilarity.

Fantastic Mr Fox.

Frank Bean (Michael Gambon): What are you singing Petey?

Petey (Jarvis): Jus..just makin’ it up as I went along really.

Frank Bean: Thats just weak songwriting - YOU WROTE A BAD SONG PETEY! (throws cigarette at Petey)

Jarvis Cocker as a puppet is kind of scary but at 42:03 its basically The Park is Mine.

A hobby of mine is to scour Ebay Australia looking for old music magazines with Pulp on them or in them. Here is the latest addition - VOX from May/June 1995 pre - Different Class or Common People coming out.

These magazines know that they will be loved, cherished and not end up as Pulp. No pun intended.
