Bird is the word.

I've been continuing my long association with Aussie punk rock institution Frenzal Rhomb lately in providing them with some artwork for a forthcoming tour. You can behold it's Bird Attack themed goodness after the bump.

Speaking of Rhomb, Jay has been become quite a dab hand on the old Pro Tools/Macbook setup and the Frenzal demos he's recorded for the new album sound pretty killer. It has inspired me to get in touch with my own Brian Eno and mix a forthcoming project featuring Jay, myself, fellow Nancy Vandal alumni Tommy Lee Turnip and ex Your Mother force of nature Craigums. More to follow on that star studded sonic extravaganza.

Zombies: An allegory for anything!!

When the NSW State Greens needed a hard hitting political satirist, they went to some other guy. When they wanted animated zombies - they came to me!!

Bloody hell!

As everyone already knows, Xray Studios is all about popular competitions and funtastic giveaways. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that I am unveiling an all new ongoing prize opportunity for lucky Xray Studios punters EACH AND EVERY MONTH!!

To get involved all you have to do is forward a suggestion for the Xray Studios Swear Word Of The Month™. If your entry is judged the most meritorious by our panel of linguistic experts and street punks, it will not only feature on the Xray Studios website for that month, but also be immortalised in an original sketch valued at $450,000*. The sketches will be part of a series entitled Profane Robots of the 23rd Century and are one-off originals depicting a droid uttering the winning piece of  filth - mailed directly to the lucky winners abode.

Ready to have your smut transformed into an original piece of robo-art? Simply post your suggestion on the Xray Studios facebook page before the end of the month. Remember the judges are most impressed by outside-the-box-thinking [actually "box" isn't a bad suggestion]. Try using an arcane profanity that is rarely used anymore. Or a filthy sounding word or phrase that isn't really obscene at all. Or simply make up a new piece of impropriety by combining a garden variety term with "tits" or "balls".

After the jump is the February swear word "Rod" incorporated into #1 of the Profane Robots of the 23rd Century series. Will #2 be yours?

Get vulgar friendos.
