Happy birthday Benny!

Happy birthday Benny!
My littlest big boy Benny is a big three-year-old now! He’s the world’s biggest Doctor Who fan already and is such a big and active boy and you just know he’s going far.

But I’m not the party most affected by the currently woeful state of technology support in NSW public schools — that honour goes to teachers. It’s true that the department was thrown ...

Writing methods, September 2014
In my continuing and ongoing quest to find a way to write more and better I’ve hit upon a new yet old method. And so far it’s working, rather well in fact. I just get up early. Yes, that simple. It’s always been the obvious idea, but it’s always been just as tough in practice ...

The New Pornographers brilliant at the Brill Building

The New Pornographers brilliant at the Brill Building
I’ve been listening to Brill Bruisers, the new album from (mostly) Canadian supergroup and like the title shortens, it’s really brilliant… they have the most perfect harmonies and they create just perfect, smart, listenable pop. It’s what pop music should be. Maybe it’s pop music for intelligent adults. This is their sixth album now, and ...

My new writing tool — Das Keyboard Professional Model S for Mac

My new writing tool -- Das Keyboard Professional Model S for Mac
I only ordered this on Monday night, after months of deliberation and attempts to try one out in person. But with seeming no chance, I had to rely on reviews and recommendations online, and they were entirely unanimous. So today, several days earlier than I expected, I got this: It’s the Das Keyboard Professional Model ...
