Doodler. Unibrow.

I have to admit that I have a thing for monobrows. Apparently, I'm not alone so this week's Doodler is for monobrow enthusiasts everywhere.

Spin. I Didn't Knew You.

My new favourite song is Shark Ridden Waters by Rhys Gruff. Beautiful melodies, gorgeous lyrics and a hypnotic groove that begs repeat plays. More sharky goodness can be found on Archie Bronson Outfit's Coconut from last year. It's still on high rotation here.

Glossy. Octopussy.

I've just taken out a subscription to Fantom, a fresh new photography journal out of Italy. It is a rare joy, a magazine where content is unexpected and new discoveries are made with every page flipped. No wonder it is my new favourite magazine. I was immediately drawn to this astounding cover image by Yumiko Utsu. I think it has just entered my top ten of all time great covers with a bullet.

Pie Report. Good Stroganoff.

Easter means time off and time off means time to explore somewhere new. Nelson Bay was the destination, and it was certainly worth every moment spent getting there. Beautiful surroundings, an amazing view from the summit and a pretty good pie from Red Ned's Gourmet Pie Bar. From a dazzling array of options including ostrich, crocodile, teriyaki kangaroo and a lobster, prawn and barramundi pie, I chose a quite subdued Beef Stroganoff considering the choices offered. At $5.50 a pop, how did Red Ned's pies fare:

Glossy. Ginger Sweeties.

I love this August 1964 cover of Woman's Journal featuring this pair of adorable ginger kittens. The cuddly kittens are apparently called David and Jonathan and were photographed by Camera Clix. I love cats and I miss my adorable Miyake greatly.
