Monday Fundays

On Mondays the Zen shop in Leichhardt is shut, on our day off we like to go on adventures. All plans when out the window when Robbie (Zen’s shop manager) rocked up at my place, from there we got a call from a mate who needed help with registering his car. Off we were to Chatswood. Adventure Time!

Miserable weather, but hey, Robbie’s E30 is a lovely place to be.

Joyetech eVic

Joyetech eVic.

New toy. In an attempt to completely quit smoking ciggies (I’m not a heavy smoker, but still…) I’ve bought this Joyetech eVic electronic cigarette starter kit. It came in Apple iPhone like packaging, charges via USB and there’s even an app you can download which outputs all sorts of stats.

The tobacco flavour I bought with the kit was awful, tasted like a cigar, but I’m sure I’ll find a flavour I do like.

Storm Trooper Helmet


Officially licensed replica, 1:1 scale, and yes you can wear it!

Couldn’t help myself. Saw this on one of Nanami’s Facebook posts (she was umming and erring about whether or not to buy it) and boom! I hit that buy now button, hard.

Nuiguruma

Got a package today in the mail from Japan. It was a massive box but with something so very small and so carefully packed inside. Love the little note too. Love love love the Japanese! So much!


A little nuiguruma of my NA8C (he makes them lovingly by hand and can do your exact car if you like, albeit a lot bigger and more expensive than this little guy!).


So cute! I’ll be hanging him from the left wiper stalk inside the cabin.

I’m a sucker for hand made stuff and this gear reminds me of leather working class in high school. Good vibes were had from the minute I saw the package in the mail box (love the little leather touch on the actual package itself) and then smelling the goods once I carefully opened the bag.

Schecter


Just dicking around on my new guitar. So rusty!

Schecter

Got a message from 2J yesterday, his missus was selling her ‘as new’ left handed guitar (so new it still had plastic protection film over the pick-ups). I couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a new guitar to play with so I jumped at the opportunity and now she’s mine.

2J delivered her at midnight last night and we had a jam session till wee hours. It looks different to anything I’ve ever owned and plays really nice, has heaps of sustain and with its pick-up gear (the tone knob pops up and makes the guitar sound almost strat like) it’s a lot more diverse than I thought it would be. The neck and action is fast but not as fast as my last guitar, speed isn’t my thing anymore these days in any case haha.
