The Unholy Trinity Of Quirky Weirdness

Today is what I like to refer to as the day of the Unholy Trinity of Quirky Weirdness. It is Fred Astaire's birthday. It is Sid Vicious' birthday. And it is my birthday. It's kind of cool to share a birthday with someone like Fred Astaire who was known for his neat, slicked-back hair and... Continue Reading →

Max And The Sea Monsters

The little boy down the road - Max - is four years old and very bright. He hasn't started school yet and and can already read. His mother, although pleased at his reading prowess is worried he spends too much time focusing on unsavoury subjects such as ghosts, goblins, ogres and things that go bump... Continue Reading →

Things That Look Like Hats

Been feeling a bit low for the last week. I think it's that whole brand new year thing where everyone is all pepped up and ready for anything, ready for a great big change where all the bad times are over and only the good times will be allowed to roll; and then you realise... Continue Reading →


Hope your days in this newest of years are bursting with colour, brimming with expectation and are choc-a-block full of joie de vivre. Oh yeah, you say with a sardonic glint in your eye. Like that's gonna happen. I believe it. I feel it. 2012 is going to be a better year for all of... Continue Reading →
