I’ve just heard that my friend Howie took his own life. I’m speechless. I knew he had issues, but I never knew how bad they were. He was always in his head a lot, a really smart guy, deep and he loved to have a good laugh. I’m now so upset that I didn’t take the time to catch up with him the last couple of times he reached out to me. Life is fucked up.
Apologies to anyone and everyone I’ve snobbed off these past few years. I’m a busy guy, sure, but I have PLENTY of time to catch up with friends. The drugs, the laziness, hobbies, they all get in the way of maybe what’s really important. I don’t hold myself responsible, in any way, but I do know I’ve got a way with words, and I do know that if I had caught up with Howie we would have had huge D&M’s because that’s what we always used to do. All of a sudden Berty Nghiem’s Cars For Hope project means so much more to me. I’m gong to make moves to help Berty as much as I can going forwards. This is a wake up call of sorts. If you’re my mate, and need to chat, please, get in touch. I’m all ears.
Mr World Time Attack Ian Baker is a dead set legend! Much overdue drinks at church with the King #goodtimes
Afternoon drinks with King Baker and Star in Balmain. I have some massive news to share too, soon!
I respect all the brave people who make a huge leap towards doing what they want to do in life (especially those who leave the “system” for less money, but more profit elsewhere). I always try to support friends who do and I have 2 girl friends who are going through the motions right now.
Dianne and Star. Dianne who’s quit corporate for her own foodie related business, and Star who’s making the leap from retail into design and marketing. Both have taken the leap, both are struggling, so this is where you all come in!
It’s a HUGE ask. I know, but I’m trying, and if you can help these 2 girls in the smallest of ways (just need 2 likes!) I’d appreciate it, the girls really would too I’m sure.
Star’s heading towards a career in graphic design, she’s landed a job at a mortgage broker, dry as fuck I know but she’s designing there, and running their facebook page too. It’s super HARD to get people to like a mortgage page, but from what I hear these guys are small team of great people. Like their page, Star gets MAJOR brownie points! Like: Loan Market Southwest
Dianne’s food boxes are $59 monthly, the first box was awesome! If you can’t afford the $59 for a box it would be awesome if you’d like and follow her facebook page in case you might be able to afford them down the line, or better yet, tell your friends about: Chilli & Vanilla
Happy B’Day to me!
Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I’m not massive on celebrating birth days, but I appreciate the love!
Can’t not mention Dad. My father Joe passed away from stomach cancer at the age of 46 when I was 18. His last message to me was to not worry about life without him, and not to worry about getting cancer, and that I will be just fine; “you are lucky”, he told me.
When Dad died I truly gained his strength. I gave myself a deadline of 46 years to do all the things I want to do in life, and fucking hell, at 41 I feel like I’ve done that and SO much more!
So again, thanks to all who wished me a happy B’Day, and thanks to everyone I’ve shared a Zen moment with. I’m so happy with how I’ve turned out (LOL!), and any more time I have in this life is truly just a bonus.
Had quality hangs (and a shoot this time!) with Tonie. Such a great gal, a hippy at heart. I have a thing for hippies!

Star came over for hangs today and we ate a lot, and we drank a lot, and we smoked a lot and we put down a vocal track. It’s rough, but it’s a start!
