SHOW OF THE WEEK

crunchy granola


The Jolie-Pitt 'Shilo Project' may be kaputski, but The Shilo Project. on at the Ian Potter at the moment (which features it's very own cavalcade of superstars) is still going strong. It's been concieved and curated by Chris McAulliffe, so yes everyone is in it. And it started with a couple of dodgy vinyl pickups from an op shop, which, it would appear is where Chris has picked up most of his large record collection (you and me both brother!)  The two records that spawned this exhibition were both copies of Neil Diamonds Shilo - one pristine, one filled in with blue felt tipped pen. In what Oprah would refer to as a 'light bulb moment' Christ thought "why not ask artists to respond to the blank shilo sleeve." Genius. Really there couldn't be a show closer to my heart. It's even got me eating granola again. Go see it. Then go home and listen to Hot August Night.


And no don't bullshit me people, I know you've all got a copy somewhere.

ha ha ha!!!
clearly that is an early conteder for "typo of the year" and you, annadee are already in the hot seat for the much coveted hml editor of the year award.

did I just write "conteder"...
I meant contender...
sheesh clearly that lamington induced suger hangover from yesterday is still causing problems.

This album is what kept me going during the early days of painful breast feeding my youngest child! Turn it on, crank it up and listen to Crunchy Granola at 3am in the morning... nothing more uplifting!
