Q: What is Gooey on The Inside?
A: Gooey on the Inside was an underground art, music and event organisation curated by Kati Cubby and Holly Fluxx that successfully hosted over 40 separate events (from 2007-2010).

Our events included art exhibitions, live music performances, dance parties, artist markets, workshops, skill shares, contemporary dance performances, writings, theatre performances, fundraisers, live video streams, panel discussions and fashion shows, as well as a combination of many of these simultaneously.

Highlights of Gooey On the Inside include:
- A live music and art event in Berlin, Germany (The Slumber Party)
- A live music and art event in Santiago, Chile (La Cunt Rave)
- A well received music showcase compilation cd (Hit Machine XXIVIVX), featuring Gooey on the Inside artists from Indonesia, Japan, Chile, USA, UK, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and across Australia.
- An invitation to speak at This Is Not Art Festival 2008 on "How to start a scene from scratch"
- Producing our own specialist radio programs for 3CR and SYN fm
- Over 40 successful dynamic and diverse events spanning the course of three years
- Featured in an interview and full page spread in UK magazine "Super Super" as well as local Australian zines

Focusing on young people who identified as women, trans, queer, and people of colour, we strived to create space, agency, audience, support and a thriving, dynamic environment and build a community for our artists.

We have now moved on to other projects, but can be contacted via email: and

thanks so much
love kati and holly!

Hey!! Does everyone know about how intensely good looking modern day hobo and steampunk fashion is?? They are two really different sub cultures with really similar styles of clothing worn extensively through-out North America.

Steampunk fashion seems like a bunch of wankers trying to look old-school merged with modern day technology. I'm not really interested in this scene at all, other than the fact that their fashion looks REALLY GOOD.

Who wouldn't want to be able to dress like this every day??

The most exciting thing about the steampunk fashion is the the science fiction/fantasy element to all the clothing and gear. If Mad Max was set in the U.S. this is what all the houses would look like....

And this is what all the "boys" and "girls" would look like.....

And we'd all get to play guitars that look like this....

And shoot dickheads with guns like this!

(Not that i advocate gun usage, seeing as guns were invented by white war mongering supremacists in the first place. But... These guns look pretty amazing and i'd use one of these if i really had to.....)

Modern day Hobo's on the other hand, are good looking, AND lead interesting and adventurous lives!! They spend most of the summer hitch hiking and hopping freight trains, and the long winter months working hard, studying, or staying on the road/rail, searching for meaning and living daily missions of discovery and defiance.

When i was traveling in the U.S. i went train hopping with a bunch of hobo friends and met some incredible artists, musicians and story-tellers along the way. Not one person looked boring or bland either, can you believe it!!?!

One of the absolute babes i met was a persyn called Dinah DiNova, who is a modern day hobo, writer, photographer, artist and musician. They grew up in Hollywood and their mother was the breeder and trainer of the Beethoven dogs (from the movie!!) >> how cool is that!!?
Here is a picture she took of herself being held aloft by a group of friends....

Something so incredible and interesting is their style of photography. They use an old-school method to create tintype photo's on the spot! Tintypes are made by creating a direct positive on a sheet of iron metal that is blackened by painting, laquering or enamelling. This is so rare and beautiful! Here are some photo's they made last year with some friends........

I highly recommend checking out her Flickr page ( ASAP, she is a genius! Also she is HUGELY INSPIRED (as i am) by the one and only Rosin Bean James. Acknowledgment and respect to that amazing person also.....I <3 br="" of="" states="" the="" united="" whatever="" xoxoxoxoxoox="">

  2. I do those nerf guns all the time and selled some steam punk and Halo ones at a con
