Another helmet.

Hey, I got this tattoo last year & never added it to this thread.
It's by Jayaism @ XO Lavant in The Mill studios. It went to Facebook first, I usually post to LJ first for copyright reasons, & the enormous LJ audience share. But this is Jayaism's photo my sister pinched from Insta, so copyright wasn't on my mind. Totes my scarred leg though.


I went out last night, watched the new Tarantino movie & photographed some lonely helmets that have popped up around town since the last Fringe festival. Sans scooters, I find the abandoned helmet a tad poetic.

I should have made Eggman a bbq chef a long time ago.

This image was on the front cover of The Australian this Wednesday, alerting me to this use of milkcrates.

Yes, you can ward off knife weilding murderers with a milkcrate.

As a big fan of milkcrates, & humour-as-resilience in the face of tragedy, it's hard not to be a fan of the coverage the internet managed in reaction to this story. However I would like to also acknowledge the death of Michaela Dunn, who died doing one of society's more heroic jobs. People deserve to be safe doing their job. If you know anybody in the same line of heroic work, be the best patron you can manage to be.

That said...


The story made world headlines as a humorously outrageous comparison of safety standards in Australia vs the U.S. Australian gun control laws reduce the impact (death toll) of violent episodes conducted by isolated people with questionable mental health, whereas the U.S. pander to democratic discussive dissolution, rather than take affirmative action to reduce harm. In the week prior to the event in Sydney, a record breaking massacre of innocents took place in Texas, allegedly an open-carry state that promotes safety by allowing civilians to carry guns around. These policies have not functionally reduced impacts for the U.S. & massacres are a regular series & part of the culture there, mocked & chastised by the rest of the world.
So for a week, the milkcrate was a meme. I have been an advocate for open carry milkcrate protection laws for years, as well as conducting safe heroic work on milkcrate beds. Go milkcrates.

I hate to break up the conga line, but I really needed a cuppa.

I went out tonight & both bars I drank in had Cheezels in the back bar. I thought this was weird.

Another retired pillowcase. Not for kids, but for fans of an obscure band that did anthropomorphic reworkings of Creedence songs.

This gave me nice feels when I found it setting up at the 2018 MCA zine fair in Sydney.
