Wild Cherry

For some reason when I was walking home tonight the most profound thing seemed to be the lyrics to Wild Cherry's 'Play That Funky Music' in particular this phrase "Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die" It could have been because I'd had a couple of beers at a friends art opening this evening or just the fact that I'm in a really good and excited mood because today I was back at Uni for orientation for my honours year. It's a real honour! I get a H U G E studio and am with a group of fantastic people most of which I've gone through art school with and who are my very best friends so I'm really excited.

I was on my way to orientation by myself and had sushi and was a little early so I thought I'd go to the park and eat if before hand and I jumped off the tram and could see my friends sitting on the grass in the distance and it appears we'd all had the same idea without consulting one another. It was so great because I was thinking about in Almost Famous when Penny Lane says: "If ya ever get lonely just go to the record store and visit your friends" or something and it was totally like that. A collective consciousness of togetherness.

So right now I am so pumped for the honours program. I'm gonna lay down the boogie and play that funky music till I die, alright. I may as well make the most of it I suppose - here's to my guaranteed last year of art school. These are some images I've been hoarding lately. Vibes... uh huh huh
