High Order!

Pimping out my main man Sean.
I've been friends with Sean since school (Av. 7 years)
We always shared a passion for photography, media, fashion, writing.
And Sean has finally hit the nail and created a fantastic blog of packed information...reviewing, bmxing, etc etc.

I got his stickers through this morning.

Check it out.

I might go on a midnight stroll tonight and do some taggage around my area.
Even if Sean wasn't my friend I would still support this blog, the Photography is outstanding & inspirational.

So, After having the worst day of '09 yesterday. Self Assessment and Self Loathing is NEVER a good thing.
I have decided to be more focused...I know I wrote a blog explaining this in January but it's hard when you try and then you don't think you're good enough.

Anyways, If I'm not working I'm doing a pitch for the Pleisure Garden Festial on 4th March.
Still designing concepts for that.

I don't dare to touch your hand...

I'm fed up of people who whine and bitch.
I am 70% guilty of this I must admit but NO more.

I would elaborate on that but like Christopher Biggings (My new favourite celeb!) said 'I just can't be arsed' If you didn't watch Come Dine with Me the other night then you will have no clue what I am on about.

So, What's new? not much, Still going through pitches with the Festival flyers, Slowly but surely getting there. Been working most days to bring in the $$$ I get paid this Friday and I am defiantly hitting up Urban Outfitters and Lady Luck Rules Ok!

I suggest you should all go and listen to Emiliana Torrini she is SWEET!

I fucking love this:

I might buy them all and wear them all at the same time LOLZ

I should probably get off online shopping sites....

Because I want most things I see and either end up pining for them and getting upset that I can't buy them (I actually do get upset! not to the point of tears but I do start thinking that I'm a scrag) or I end up buying them and become broke!

What I have my eye on this evening:

I always take out a big bag when I go clubbing and my friends always take the piss out of it HA so, this would be big enough to fit all my shit in but small enough to be normal with., £38.

I love birds and I love knickers., £8., £16.

So don't know if I've informed the blogspot world of my little idea for setting up a mini empire of tees, badges and totes?! I've wanted to do this for about three years now, I asked one friend, she was up for it, but we never ever got round to doing any designs or thinking of anything together, then myself and my friend from uni came up with 'make love not war' discussed a few designs and unfortunately that's as far as it went. Now with Spasia who has had a similar background to me in terms of design (Went to University and quit, wanting to set up a mini empire but had no one to do it with) we've created 'The End' and I am SO excited to be doing this, especially with Spasia who is a fantastic artist. We are both hoping this is going to bring in some recognition and £££ we do realise that we can't just jump into this and alot of planning and researching needs to be done...!

Here are some really quick designs that I've done.

Also, Don't think I mentioned that I am getting highly involved in this mini festival that was successful last year in Eastbourne that it has appeared back...

I am doing some flyer designs and web design for it as no one else seems to be interested in that side of things! I have done a few ideas already and I am meeting up with one of the girls who is organising it next week to get some solid colour scheming, sizing, fonts, information etc. down and ready to create! I am not getting paid for it but I'm sure this will boost my recognition and will it will give me something to portray on my portfolio.

I really like this concept of having the 'garden like' vines in the background.
I think it works well with the white writing but I am not sure whether to have it embossed or just leave it flat?

I haven't cried in ages but this makes me really close to crying.
I prefer it to the girls aloud version! Even though I've been told that musical it's a shocker but I am not musical so...

I know everyone is chuffed...

But, I think the reunion of Blink 182 is going to be massive. They are one of those bands that I've always liked but never would state on my 'Favourite Music' sections or never thought I would miss but will sell out BIG TIME but I am hoping to get one, would be fucking cool if they played a festival in the U.K this year, HOW EXCITING.

My visit to Bath was absolutely awesome, really was one of the best weekends ever. Everything and everyone was just funny. Maybe it was because I was drunk before 5pm I don't know, but it was just awesome, plus I felt fine the next day! Wonderful.

Was watching White Chapel after work tonight and although I might sound like a twisted sicko for saying this but Jack the Ripper has always interested me, serial killers in general do, I think it's fascinating how people can think like that and be so obsessed with doing it...I remember going to the London Dungeon at the tender age of 12 and absolutely loving it, I walked about on my own for most of it because I found everything really fucking interesting...It's just fucking insane. I blame my Mother she loves reading horror stories! Eeeek.

Mary Jane Kelly, said to be the last one of Jack's brutal killings.

"The body was lying naked in the middle of the bed, the shoulders flat but the axis of the body inclined to the left side of the bed. The head was turned on the left cheek. The left arm was close to the body with the forearm flexed at a right angle and lying across the abdomen.
The right arm was slightly abducted from the body and rested on the mattress. The elbow was bent, the forearm supine with the fingers clenched. The legs were wide apart, the left thigh at right angles to the trunk and the right forming an obtuse angle with the pubes.
The whole of the surface of the abdomen and thighs was removed and the abdominal cavity emptied of its viscera. The breasts were cut off, the arms mutilated by several jagged wounds and the face hacked beyond recognition of the features. The tissues of the neck were severed all round down to the bone.
The viscera were found in various parts viz: the uterus and kidneys with one breast under the head, the other breast by the right foot, the liver between the feet, the intestines by the right side and the spleen by the left side of the body. The flaps removed from the abdomen and thighs were on a table.
The bed clothing at the right corner was saturated with blood, and on the floor beneath was a pool of blood covering about two feet square. The wall by the right side of the bed and in a line with the neck was marked by blood which had struck it in a number of separate splashes.
The face was gashed in all directions, the nose, cheeks, eyebrows, and ears being partly removed. The lips were blanched and cut by several incisions running obliquely down to the chin. There were also numerous cuts extending irregularly across all the features.
The neck was cut through the skin and other tissues right down to the vertebrae, the fifth and sixth being deeply notched. The skin cuts in the front of the neck showed distinct ecchymosis. The air passage was cut at the lower part of the larynx through the cricoid cartilage.
Both breasts were more or less removed by circular incisions, the muscle down to the ribs being attached to the breasts. The intercostals between the fourth, fifth, and sixth ribs were cut through and the contents of the thorax visible through the openings.
The skin and tissues of the abdomen from the costal arch to the pubes were removed in three large flaps. The right thigh was denuded in front to the bone, the flap of skin, including the external organs of generation, and part of the right buttock. The left thigh was stripped of skin fascia, and muscles as far as the knee.
The left calf showed a long gash through skin and tissues to the deep muscles and reaching from the knee to five inches above the ankle. Both arms and forearms had extensive jagged wounds.
The right thumb showed a small superficial incision about one inch long, with extravasation of blood in the skin, and there were several abrasions on the back of the hand moreover showing the same condition.
On opening the thorax it was found that the right lung was minimally adherent by old firm adhesions. The lower part of the lung was broken and torn away. The left lung was intact. It was adherent at the apex and there were a few adhesions over the side. In the substances of the lung there were several nodules of consolidation.
The pericardium was open below and the heart absent. In the abdominal cavity there was some partly digested food of fish and potatoes, and similar food was found in the remains of the stomach attached to the intestines."

So fucked up.


Catherine Eddowes, 2nd victim.

Ah, something a bit more light-hearted I think before I sleep!

Even this creeped me out a little bit, Why the hell I'm I writing this at this time of night?

I can't wait to see you again...

I cannot get Miley Cyrus out of my head and I'm not sure where she appeared from, because I haven't listened to it since being at my friends house who is obsessed with her and Hannah Montana...Oh well, there could be worse songs stuck in your head.

Does Rose wine go off? I opened it a couple of weeks ago, it's a screw top and I've barely had a glass from it...I'm not sure whether to take it on my adventure of not.

My adventure being a trip to Bath, My friend Ross has his birthday coming up next week but as he will be at University next week we have decided to go up tomorrow, it's supposed to snow so I am hoping we will get stuck so I don't have to come back to work. HA. It's going to break the bank but we all need a little road trip of fun sometimes!

Diane Arubus, 1967.
I saw identical twins at work the other day and it totally creeped me out, they were wearing the same clothes, they smiled at the same time, walked around each other...argh, it was really really creepy. I think I might have a phobia of identical twins? Dear lord please do not let me have identical twins when I'm settled and in love.
So, Valentines draws closer...It isn't and never has been a big holiday for me. I had a 'Valentine' a couple of years ago and even though we were on the downfall anyway lolz, it just made us argue more, as he loved the idea of Valentines and I wasn't it's biggest fan...I personally didn't want to go to London, Go the the Zoo then go to a show...(although that does sound quite appealing now!) just 'cause it was some day were you were supposed to show love and cheer. BLAH. Well, at the end of the day I think it's a waste of time, money it's waaaaaaaaaay too hyped and I don't like it. Maybe I'm just bitter? Maybe I just never care enough for stupid things like that...*** If I got a card like this I'd probably be sick on whoever gave it too me, How absolutely stupid...I just don't think you need a card to show that you care, you wouldn't be with the person if you didn't care...I really want to find someone who is as anti Valentines day as I am....RANT OVER.

Things I am currently loving.

- Manson interviews on you tube, he tries hard not to laugh and look normal! but we all know you are Mr.Manson.
- Joan Rivers swearing on Loose Women.
