Crazy arguments on the Internet

Crazy arguments on the Internet
Back at work today for the first time since before Christmas, and it’s quiet, naturally. Seen a couple of people, but as I expected, I’m basically the only person here for most of the day. And of course, while I’m getting back in the swing of things and getting into some work projects (finishing a ...

Sit up happy boy

My votes for Triple J Hottest 100 2012… and why

Put in my votes for Triple J’s Hottest 100 this afternoon. My 10 songs can be seen on this handy page they generate: http://bit.ly/Uum3iH I picked six Australian songs and four American songs, which is about my usual split. And being my place, here are my selections, and a brief note on why I choose each of ...

Wreck-it Ralph and the perfect heroic journey

Wreck-it Ralph and the perfect heroic journey
Went over to Dubbo today with Will and Alex to see Wreck-it Ralph. And despite being surprisingly expensive and a bit of a strain to get over there (thank you boys) I had a great time and it is a really, really great movie. It’s part homage to computer games old and new, and part ...

Disingenuous Dick Smith?

Disingenuous Dick Smith?
Seeing a lot of ads for Dick Smith’s new all-round “Aussie foods” venture. And while I freely admit that his motives may be pure and wonderful, the whole thing strikes me as odd as highly disingenuous. This may be just me, but I think many would feel the same way. I’ve basically taught myself to ...

On Thor, Avengers and shared universes

On Thor, Avengers and shared universes
Watched Thor with my sons yesterday afternoon — had not seen it yet. Great fun movie, some excellent scenes and really great actors over the various roles. It makes our viewing of the extended Marvel film universe almost up to date (we haven’t seen any of the recent Hulk movies, but with the successful change ...

Cleaning up the house

Cleaning up the house, a photo by StephenATurner on Flickr. This is what a kid’s room should look like — cool Adventure Time poster, a calendar that was a gift from his teacher last year and a “brag wall” full of posters the lovely Play Therapist made for him while he was in hospital. Just ...

Hard not to go with New Year’s Resolutions

Hard not to go with New Year's Resolutions
I generally don’t hold too much stock in these things, but there’s always a few I want to try and follow. Fitness, health and weight is usually one to watch — but I pretty much worked that one out perfectly last year. I lost between 10-15kg last year in preparation for the big donation, and ...

Blogging and writing in 2013

Blogging and writing in 2013
A new year seems like a chance for new things, new changes and new plans of creative attack. So I’ll say it up front to start the year: I will be aiming to blog everyday in 2013. So that means at least 365 new posts, but hopefully a lot more. There’s plenty of things happening ...
