Getting my writing out there

Well, only in a small way, but it’s nice to be wanted 🙂 My Yo Gabba Gabba review, on the State Sports Centre website… they contacted me and asked to reprint it, so they obviously figured I liked their venue: http://www.sports-centre.com.au/sop/centre/137/Tell_Us Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Quiet one, but productive

Really quiet weekend, almost entirely a strictly at home affair, which helped the bank balance, my health, and getting things done around the house. Pretty poor weather as well, which has been a running theme all week, and since that’s been no good for my health, it was better to stay home as much as ...

Song of the moment — “The Bleeding Heart Show”, The New Pornographers

Have finally been listening to The New Pornographers Recently. I’ve heard some of their stuff before of course, and got Carl Newman’s new solo album from emusic recently (and have heard some Neko Case works as well), but I finally grabbed a New Pornographers album from emusic too. And it’s more magnificently done pure pop. ...

April Fools…

Another typical April Fool’s Day, with the Internet just a cacophony of jokes and attempted jokes that so thoroughly drown out some sites that you don’t even bother reading for actual news. It reminds me of a few years ago when Google launched GMail on April 1. For a while you had to wonder if ...

Can you hear me?

Another hospital trip today, this time mainly for Alex. A hearing test… to put it bluntly we’re quite sure he  has some hearing problems, we’re just not sure how much. It would explain a lot, like his speech, and his understanding of things, and the way he reacts, or doesn’t react, to us in so ...

Truly mobile now

Anyone who’s read this before might just be wondering how on earth I’m happily blogging away while being at Nelson Bay, in a house I can proudly say has never had a phone connection (why pay month when it’s only occupied a few months a year in total?) And the answer of course is that ...

TV: Leverage … familiar and new heist fun

Caught the first episode of the new TNT series Leverage this week. Have to admit that I’m predisposed to liking it already, as I’m a fan of series co-creator John Rogers, and have followed his blog for several years now. So I’ve been following the making of Leverage for sometime, and been waiting for its ...

America, go out and vote!

It’s Tuesday night here, but in the US election day is just starting (amusingly enough we had a big horse race here instead). There’s not much more to say of course, except really one thing: America, go out and vote! Of course, it’s no secret who I’d vote for (and 78% of Australians apparently), but ...

We have the tools, now let’s see the talent

To do a little paraphrasing from Ghostbusters up there, I’ve finally got the gear. Managed to work out the financial details (from bond money and the like) to go and get myself an eeePC today. EeePC 1000H, with a lot of good features, and most importantly a good keyboard. For writing, most of all. So ...
