“impatient truck driver overtakes asian man while doing a turn with miscalculated results” –2014


001-2



the sign next to the door below reads
’travellers interviewed thursday afternoons and wednesday mornings”
are you a traveller?


002

the above photo and every other photo i see for that weight building protein crap always reminds me of the quote below from Fight Club.
Its only 8 seconds long and im pretty sure the next scene is where they first walk into the bar and Tom Waits is playing in the background.







Seriously listen to how good the aforementioned Tom Waits track is, it could be the toughest song of all time.




i bought some cheapo tyres for my bike and have been ridin around the joint takin snaps, it beats the couch and is helping my currently jacked back strengthen back up so i can do that thing we call “skateboarding” again

Now its time for some sick dance music, or house music, or techno, or whatever its called.
Lets just say that its dirty and grimy and gritty and DOPE
Greg Beato’s name itself makes this deserving of a listen.
And im just gonna put it out there cuz it’s my blog your on, that pretty much everything coming out on L.I.E.S (long island electronic systems) records is worth a listen.

digital days


First of all, i deleted my old url www.thisisdiversal.com cause i was over payin for it and it was kinda grandiloquent in a way, much like using said word. The old url will just 404 ya now.
So if it matters to ya then make a note of it.

...anyway, here is some various things spotted from the last few weeks

On the ride back, after pickin up some fresh Ultramax from K-Mart,
Vic St was havin’ a Lunar new yr festival, it was a nice change from the junkies that usually roam around there.

And so i havent completely wasted your time, and hopefully this doesnt end up further wasting your time.
Check out this track by Bonquiqui on L.I.E.S records.
IMHO one of the sickest labels going around if your into this type of stuff, which at this moment i definitely am.




if you hated that, then this lesser known/not your regular Sonic Youth track is awesome too.
