Hullo,

At this moment i’m currently burning some tapes of a band I played in over the summer called ‘The Copy Scams’.  In four weeks running up to the Portland Zine Symposium, myself and my friends Alex, Paul and Marc (who I was staying with at the time) had the daft idea of making a pop-punk band that sang exclusively about zines.  We managed to rehearse, record and eventually play 4 songs at the after party following the zine symposium.  For those who familiar of the punk rock, see how many Jawbreaker/J church riffs you can spot in the link below –

Yesterday I spent ages updating my website with descriptions as well as uploading some new work and taking some older stuff down.  You can take a look if you want?

Here’s a birthday card I made in October last year for Tanya –

Our own rodent friends, ‘Sam’ and ‘Neil’ were up early this morning, I think it may have had something to do with me and Tanya playing power-violence records whilst eating our breakfast.  Maybe.
