South-west of anywhere

It’s apparently become the done thing now in Australian media, when, talking about any kind of crime or problem in Sydney, to describe wherever it happened as being in “Sydney’s South-west”. This took on particularly stupid precedence tonight when a report on a knife attack at a wedding in Lidcombe became in Sydney’s south-west. Only ...

First look at Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse

Wired News has a short piece on Joss Whedon’s new show Dollhouse, and some interesting casting info that I hadn’t heard before. Here’s the first shot of the new cast: Eliza Dushku looks as hot as ever. Tahmoh Penikett from Battlestar Galactica is at the back left, and Amy Acker from Angel is in there ...

Daily Show viewers are still smarter …

Another study into viewers of The Daily Show … and no matter how they try to spin, we’re still smart people 🙂 Some highlights: “A journalism think tank studying “The Daily Show” doesn’t believe many people get their news from Jon Stewart — because otherwise they wouldn’t get the jokes.” “They’re not making jokes that ...

Diverting channels

I am really hating Channel Ten right now, despite it seeming to be the most common commercial network that I watch. Because so much of their schedule is shit, yet just enough of it holds my interest. But their advertising — endless bullshit plugs for Big Brother that are so annoying they almost make me ...

Let’s see now …

Another tough one today. Still not getting into the writing as I’d like to, and there’s no one to blame but myself. I know that. Clear skies again fortunately, but it’s suddenly got really cold … insanely so for only April. Hate to see what it will be like in July. Then again, it might ...

Review: Robot Chicken Season 1 or Pop Culture geekery at crack speed 1

Miracle of miracles today … good weather! Found out today that there had been 13 days straight of rain before now, which I was also reminded coincided exactly with school holidays. But finally, today was actually pretty nice, so after the usual morning difficulties we headed to the beach. The water was kind of dirty, ...

Such a lazy, lazy day …

We drove up to Nelson Bay late last night, which was probably a bit insane, but safe enough really. It rained a lot at different times, but we got through with only one pitstop for dinner. And today was just so lazy … a public holiday for Anzac day, and it was still raining a ...

Logos and musical intelligence

The job goes on nicely, and the bad weather goes on not so nicely. So some different things: A nice story today that goes into the behind the scenes details of how the unique production company logo is created for the end of every episode of Battlestar Galactica. It’s starting its 4th season in the ...

First week ends and more Wii time

Ha ha ha … of course we’re getting home and playing Wii again. Sallie borrowed this Monkey Island casual game set thing from Video Ezy, and it drive us kind of nuts after a while. Should think about some real new games, likely Simpsons game first. Work’s pretty good for a first week … learning ...

Letting your reputation do the talking

Letting your reputation do the talking
Pretty good start at the new job … some money problems unrelated to new stuff causing problems … but the days are long, the weather is bad, and the commuting is almost as bad as I could imagine already. So on to the important stuff … Underbelly of course. Gatto chases Opes Prime debts Former ...
