Ah whales, the overweight ballarinas' of the sea.

The etymology of "bogan"?

Possibly named after the Bogan River area in Australia.
  1. ( Australian ) A person who is, or is perceived to be, unsophisticated or of a lower class background. The stereotype includes having speech and mannerisms that are considered to denote poor education and uncultured upbringing. Typical traits include drinking beer, smoking, religiously following sport, having an interest in Australian-build cars (eg. Holdens, Fords etc.) and Hard Rock music. The term was usually used in reference to an anglo-celtic or indigenous Australian. It mostly excluded Australians who belong to other ethnic groups that were established relatively recently, although this is changing. Its meaning is more or less analagous to the US american redneck.

HDR 01

I finally figured out that my camera can take auto-bracketed exposures, so I thought I'd try a HDR composite. This is the best kind of composition - one you don't have to get up from your computer chair to capture.

Madness, man.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Trees!

Who knew he grew his own staffs.

Nico's Album of the Week

Colour Haze - Tempel
Elektrohasch Records 2006

Sumer Is Icumen In, Hurrah, Hurrah


Winter is over for the year and I'm extremely thankful, as I haven't tolerated the cold well this year. Probably not a good sign, given that it may well be one of the milder winters I'll experience in the coming few years, but I'll just have to confront that when I come to it.

In the mean time, the warmer weather signifies the coming of some of the more pleasurable things in life - like sitting on the deck on a hot afternoon overlooking the road, cold beer in hand, listening to stoner rock and discussing the merits of French existentialism and Pizza Hut.

To welcome the beginning of the sweaty season, Colour Haze's undeniably groovy, psychadelic and downright rockin' Tempel album sets the scene. It's all downhill from here.

Ok This Is Just Down Right Cool!

I want a little pet night light like this guy, he could follow me round and light up things similar to the way a puppy would if you taped a torch to its head.

But alas here I am with no light bulb man, puppy or torch...

Is that George Clooney?

He's gonna need a bigger boat!
