MESSING AROUND

SEARCHING FOR

a young artist (preferrably around aged 16-20) to be an active part of this NEW PROJECT
check the blog for all the info then e-mail either JHESSIGGINS@HOTMAIL.CO.UK or WEAREYOUNG@HOTMAIL.CO.UK with samples of your work/ a short description of yourself and possibly a link to a blog or flickr or myspace or something for us to check out. then we will e-mail you back with any extra info & whether we think you are suitable or not.
If we decide not (which is probably a horrible thing to say but it's not just me who decides and it's kind of important) then you will be MORE MORE MORE than welcome to contribute to VOLUME ONE. infact we will probably force you to.

the terrible nung gwama

It is heroes night tonight (YES YES YES YES YES). However, if you are not a heroes watcher or are bored in general at some point in the near future, answer this question;

DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE MOON LANDING?
if you do, make a picture of neil armstrong on the moon and e-mail it to me.
if you do not, make a picture of the moon on neil armstrong and e-mail it to me.

(jhessiggins@hotmail.co.uk)

I believe in it. Definitely.

issue four

altering images a la joachim schmid (with varying success) & a few things of noteable importance




1) issue four is 55% there
2) issue three will be available in all the usual places (magma, pop, nexus, vinyl exchange & picadilly records) tomorrow. delays due to lack of paper and energy to go buy paper
3) wilkinsons have stopped selling the paper i use for zines and notebooks. this poses many problems and makes me go WAAAAH. so from now on everything will look different. WAAAAH.
4) i have a new project under way which will be good good good. there will be more info soon. look forward to it.
5) anyone around picadilly records this week should try & find one of five handmade cd's that leveret has placed amongst cd racks, it will be a worthy find and it will be free.
6) i am bored of GEOGRAPHY. anybody who wants to exhibit in the hallway outside my room, check here.

EDIT.
turns out issue three WON'T be around tomorrow and nothing will be around anytime soon unless my printer sorts itself out.
boohoo

don't worry, we're in no hurry.



i feel like saying things like "i'm in a strange place right now" and "i do not feel quite myself" and "EVERYTHING IS SUCH BULLSHIT".
but i really hate saying stuff like that and they're probably not true. i've just been having an off week and it was bound to happen sooner or later.
i've been buying some amazing records though. thats good.

sundays are amazing

i have just finished eating a really big plate of cauliflower cheese and it feels really really good & warm in my belly. my mother has started making me a patchwork blanket and wants to get rid of the bathmat.
today was very busy and i am tired.
tomorrow, everyone should go to islington mill for per-etitia's hear here gig thing. i mentioned this on my ziney blog but i will mention it again. there will be an exhibition (of lucy's work, i think some of julias work, and even mine, maybe more, i have not been told), a film screening (of a film about arthur russell), food (GOOD FOOD), and three bands (anni rossi, rollin hunt & sic alps). visit per-etitias blog for every detail (follow the link! follow the link!)

IT WILL BE 10/10 FOR ALL OF THE SENSES.

bathmats


the higgins family are now bath mat kind of people. we never have been before, but i am ready to embrace this change and fully accept the mat into my life.


i didn't get as much done today as i wanted to but that is because
HEROES IS BACK.
