Journal pages. Wednesday has a quote from Jodi Dean's Blog Theory written down. Below that, Thursday is notes preparing for a meeting with questions about the body and art. The right hand page reads "it's all slops, slaps + clacks" and has a pencil drawing of willo-the-wisp superimposed over the crooked spire.

resistances

The racing pigeon terrified out chimney
Street rat in a box he won’t quit kicking
Animal rescue has no time for wildness

We couldn’t even THINK revolution
and now ads for STRIKE say sell your house
for free

Willo the wisp
Indignation in comedy
We are a portion of everything we’ve ever loved

Pencil drawing of four Depeche Mode fans from the documentary Our Hobby Is Depeche Mode. From R-L: a man wears glasses, tshirt and wristwatch; a woman with long hair has a beaded necklace and sunglasses round her neck; a woman looks off camera, wearing a t-shirt depicting a red rose like the Violator album cover; a person with short curly hair, glasses and black lipstick, wears a feather boa and various chains and necklaces.

Pencil drawing of two art students in masks representing bureaucrats from Pat Holland's The Hornsey Film (1968). A jagged speech bubble reads "We are in non-communication most of the time. The terms of the other side are unworkable."

Pencil drawing of two hands giving a shoulder massage. Handwritten text reads "The shoulder massages at the end of each night aggravated the pain in my own shoulder blades. I wished for something that would alleviate both our discomfort."

the joy of fillering

Text reads "Since I started my job last year I’ve been collecting the post-its I use daily to keep track of technical data for the knitting machine. In 2018 I stayed with in an LA airbnb with a woman from London and she had a daily inspirational post-its wall. It varied from bible quotes to statements such as “men want you”. I always regretted not photographing it. I think I’ll make a zine with mine." There are four drawings of post-its with handwritten text on them, surrounding a drawing of a pile of post-its. "Post-its" is superimposed over the drawings in yellow.
