I made these really silly collages today because I didn't have a lot of time in the studio. My flight to Perth is bright and early tomorrow morning which is so exciting! I actually am really excited. I was just looking up all the Op Shops in the vicinity of the hotel I am staying. There is one that is only a four minute walk away! I made a playlist to perhaps listen to on the plane. It is called 'Sexy'. There are reasons for this, one being I was reading some book on Madonna which is not unusual and she said that when she was a young teen she would lay on her bed and play her Bob Dylan record of Lay Lady Lay over and over and over and just cry. I love that. You can download the tracks via this link  ...don't be shy! I'm into people crying on their beds to this y'know in the least cruel way possible and okay so I can't imagine anyone crying to Barry White. Or Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It On'... but the rest... hope you have tissues up your sleeve! I just wanna specify as well that I think the reason I like the image of Madonna crying to Lay Lady Lay is that it's not actually an incredibly tragic song, it's more like she's crying about other stuff like being a teenage girl, and this is the soundtrack to that. I always bring this up, but like the scene in Almost Famous where Penny Lane is getting her stomach pumped and they play 'My Cherie Amour'..
