Dear troglodytes, philandering filibusters, friends, foes, and fusspots,
We hear you. It is getting a tad boring around these parts. Interview after interview, whip after whip — why wouldn’t you scream in united togetherness, “When are you going to do something new!? Something bold!? Something we can use?! Something with pictures for chrissakes!?”
Yes! By joe, we agree! It’s a fair statement. And one we’d like to duely acknowledge.
So please, as a gesture of our commitment to you, our dearly beloved readership, take this new feature — The Junior Mixtape — and be on your way. Just be sure to use it wisely.
The wise uses of the Junior Mixtape:
a) Headphones, tea, and thirty minutes worth of brain-melting work to be done;
b) A project to finish, procrastination sets in — turn up the volume, dance about the room, and summon the energy demon from your inner soul;
c) A romantic partner to woo, a mixtape to be made;
d) Indecision about what to do in life — load it onto ipod, take a thirty minute walk through the summer air, contemplate life.

Every month we’ll be profiling a young artist/designer/writer/etc via the mixtape cover.
This month’s cover is by Belinda Chen (http://www NULL.belindachen NULL.com/) — A 22 year-old RMIT graduate from Melbourne currently living in Berlin. She has some wonderful work on her website, including some truly considered design, and is the proud owner of a smile that could cure world pestilence. She was also a recent runner-up in Kitsune Noir’s SPACETIME (http://kitsunenoir NULL.com/blog/2009/10/07/the-desktop-wallpaper-project-spacetime-competition-winners/)Desktop Project (http://kitsunenoir NULL.com/blog/2009/10/07/the-desktop-wallpaper-project-spacetime-competition-winners/) competition (http://kitsunenoir NULL.com/blog/2009/10/07/the-desktop-wallpaper-project-spacetime-competition-winners/).Tweet
