In August 2018, Krupskaya decided to challenge ourselves with one of our more ridiculous adventures yet: tour across Siberia, over nine and a half thousand kilometres in three and a half weeks. Oh, and survive, preferably.
It's been a fair ol' while since I updated my journal, though this hasn't been due to simple procrastination. Well, maybe not entirely, at least.
After a month of being loved, looked after and shitting all over my home, our children are no longer with us. I feel like how my parents must've when I finally buggered off, too.
While I'm happy to report that the children have become surprisingly tall, I'm sorry to say I must keep this entry quite 'short'. Hehehehe... ugh, I'm dead inside.
While they're definitely growing, there's absolutely no way animals of this size should yet be able to produce ten times their mass in faeces.
I've never worked with owls before and I've never been comfortable around babies. Since these are a mixture of the two, I figured week one would be about getting to grips with the basics.

I wrote one of these lighting articles a week or so back and a record-smashing FOUR people really dug it! Enthused and high on my new found fame, I seek to strike gold twice.

Right, because shared success is legal tender, just like 'exposure' and the promise that you'll 'tell all your mates' about me.
Freelancing is great, until you start having to chase people for money, then it's not so great. Here's some guidance on how to make the not so great, a little more tolerable.
An insight into the ballache/creative process behind the artwork for Krupskaya's 2017 split release with Germany's Wojczech.
So, I am writing this journal entry retroactively, given that I spent pretty much the entire last two days of tour wiped out by some alien parasite. No, not Alex.
Goodbye Prague, goodbye Petra! Onward to Germany for the first of our last two shows.
Our three dates in Czech conclude with a show in Prague where we tried to play ten years ago, only to by a dodgy generator. So rock 'n' roll.
