Gettin’ My Coffee at the Coffee Truck

August 11, 2009


August 10, 2009

After a short and brief and tiny fourteen month gap, Houseplant Picture Studio is heading back OVER to our second home which seems to be London, England which is approximately a ten hour journey by plane but (as they say…) well worth it. As usual, we’ll be sending back reports (maybe LIVE maybe not…) and taking loads of special investigative photos. We’ve got a different grown-up hotel this time, right near the Royal Albert Hall (where Twiggy once played with Eric Clapton and Jonathan Ross and then Peter Sellers and nine members of Take That showed up…) and a seasoned portion of Hyde Park. Anyway, it should be a total gasser-er-er and I personally always enjoy getting right off the plane to rigorously check up on old haunts and to re-trace steps and to make sure that old bits of London-esque graffiti are still where I left them (there’s graffiti on a series of doors near ASDA in Charlton that’s been there well over ten years! What the fuck?! No shit!)

HPS London Tour 2009 – coming in October!


August 10, 2009

I’m like totally stunned at the fact that I’m like totally really into Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows right now. I mean, it’s probably been several years or more since I’d eaten actual basic puffy white marshmallows straight out of the plastic bag, but this is a truly nice thing which I am doing currently for my self now and I’m like totally really fucking into marshmallows right now. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I’m also like totally into that funny Seinfeld TV show which is a TV show I had not previously been into previously until very recently (it’s funny and I like it!) and perhaps the good feelings I get from watching the Seinfeld TV show have oozed pleasantly and assisted me (in an etheric sense) in enjoying basic kick-ass marshmallows (full-size, not miniatures or pink or blue marshmallows) again…so, yeah, it’s Seinfeld and marshmallows all the way as mid-August rears it’s head and forces September into a stand-off at home plate.

BENBENEK – American Car Stereo

August 10, 2009

Have yet to even begin album number seven which will definitely be called “Jesus A Go-Go” but already must announce the title of album number eight which is now officially entitled “American Car Stereo” and which will feature a few originals and a slew of carefully chosen covers, as well as one (or two) hot rod and/or cruising favorites circa 1961 through 1996 and most definitely “Everybody Plays the Fool” which was done so well by The Main Ingredient.

More news concerning this project as it or they come in.
Hey, I just got a brand new haircut! It should last a while…
