the balaclava blues

I heard some very annoying news about my neighbourhood since illustrating Balaclava for the Design Files calendar. As it turns out I need to add more coffee cups and ditch those records. Yep, Wall is taking over the music store Second Spin. I'm totally bummed. Wall (apparently) offered more bucks to the landlord and they succumbed. The high rent on the strip has already seen the Asian grocery and other small businesses disappear. That's what the strip needs, more cafes! While we're at it let's add some more chemists, bakeries and $2 stores.

it times of struggle the last thing humans need is more energy to speed up our societies and diminish the value of quality. we need more music, not that hit music influencing our youth into being degenerates. i'm sorry to here this news but the world goes up and down with life.

...not forgetting more real estate agents! Sounds like our little Westgarth strip. We now have a Nando's...
