Hello, its has been a quiet couple of months I know with the holiday break and what not. I am keeping busy however, with a number of different ventures underway in the new year which I slowly reveal through this site.

The first, is a project I’ve had in the works for a couple of years and am finally giving it a full head of steam. It is entitled God Awful, which will orientate around the production of a magazine feed by themed submission. More on this to come but the site design is under way and will be launched in a couple of month all going well. Keep an eye on it here as it unravels.

God Awful is one of those phrases which can be inherently interpreted a number of ways. The magazine will hopefully be the antithesis of the usual negative interpretation, focusing on things which are inherently, well, not awful. The mantra for it all is ‘Good God, that’s Awfully Good”.

The project in essence is an formal curated extension of what I already do here in a way, hopefully identifying (well subjectively) things which people should know about, though with each edition having a specific conceptual sway. A lot less puppy pictures though, except for the one above.

These photos were taken during a series of three trips to the Petone Dog beach over the holiday break. My pup Castro is becoming a pretty strong lil’ swimmer. He looks like a wee skinny drowned rat when wet though. Pretty funny. The other two dogs are Honey and Layla. I’ve posted photos of them previously (here) and (here) of past trips to the beach.

This looks cool … my kinda people…

Description – ‘Two of the 21st century’s most powerful social forces; Hip-Hop and geek culture collide head-on in the feature-length documentary, Nerdcore For Life. Born on the internet, Nerdcore Hip-Hop is rap music made by geeks, for geeks and covers such traditionally nerdy topics as comic books, video games, sci-fi, anime and technology. This new and fascinating genre is founded on “Do It Yourself” ethics and most Nerdcore rappers create their music on home PCs and disseminate their work for free on the internet.
Though it has existed on-line for almost a decade, only recently has Nerdcore gone from an internet fad to an underground cultural phenomenon. Filmed over the course of two years, Nerdcore For Life profiles the top names in the genre as they celebrate “geek Life” and their passion for hip hop to the fullest, fight anti-nerd stereotypes, and attempt to overcome the common obstacles that block musicians of all types from fulfilling their dreams. The documentary follows these dedicated artists as they go from recording rhymes in their mother’s basement to performing live for thousands of cheering fans. From their first song to their first MTV appearance, Nerdcore For Life chronicles the amazing transformation of a group of unknown nerds into internet celebrities and rising hip-hop stars.’
