Super nice video here from Sonja Teri of our show in LA…. fun times. Don’t know how to embed a vimeo vid in me blog so you’ll have to follow the link.

The window panel has now been taken. Thanks to the Dirt Floor for the updates.
Been listening to this loads since I got it yesterday. Quality. Absolutely banging.
I first heard Outkast when i got their debut Southerplayalisticadillacmusic shortly after it first came out in 94, it was one of those big albums that had a huge effect on me, as back in those days before downloads and the internet and when pocket money meant I could only get a new tape every few months, you tended to listen to every album like a million times.
Can’t believe its been 16 years (yikes) and after an increasingly inventive and successful career Big Boi is back with an even better album and he’s still only 35. It leans heavily towards an 80s synth-funk sound with saucy Southern guitar licks. Nice.
Everybody here at Conor HQ (a multinational think tank of coffee-drinking dreamers) is delighted with our feature in this months Blueprint (‘The Leading Magazine of Architecture and Design’ dontcha know). They did a nice feature on my recent trip to Israel and Palestine.
I hadn’t got around to posting about the piece I did on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach while we were in LA a few weeks back. It was good fun, really chilled spot, lots of friendly people, decent coffee (a rarity in the States) and tasty food. Not bombed at all, and certainly no graf from what I could see.
And then I spotted this over on The Dirt Floor. I know this happens, usually by some chromed up graf writers and I’ve no problem with it, all part of painting on the streets blah blah blah. I don’t know anything about this guy but his work seems to fall more into the Street Art category than the Graf one so you’d think he might have a little more respect for what I’ve done. I would have preferred if he had just gone right through my piece instead of adding on to the end. The bit he went over was my favourite part, we had to board up those windows so that panel is nice and flat and I could really move the paint around on it.
