I am now a married man, i got this huge chunk of gold on my left hand. 2 beautiful new microphones, external soundcard/interface, 1 TB data storage(I know...ONLY 1), hundreds of blank discs and millions of sheets of card for making cd covers. Printer ink. Website. Bits of brain left.
Here in Dunedin theres a real mercantile buzz, new galleries for contemporary art practices have popped up, we have Rice and Beans, Jim Currins private experimental theatre, 'A' Gallery and new studio spaces everywhere.
