Re: Thanksgiving (US) 2020

I think those of us outside of the USA are thankful for the final end of 3 centuries of UK/US capitalist hegemony as the USA decends into farce. We look forward to a Chinese and European inspired socialist future

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

Caravan Ray : I like everything about this except the way that the vocals sound. Well. You nailed that. I agree. For 2 years I have been struggling with this "shoebox" sound. I moved house 2 years ago and I thought that was the problem. But I now recall I also got a new mic. A "better" mic. I now t...

Re: Original Flava Coverfight - Video Edition

Oh, and for anyone interested - the guitar is a Maton Apollo 505, which we hacked around a little to make it left-handed. Maton says there were 313 made, and I've played 2 of them. This one left the factory the day my brother was born. https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/323555554463467018/ Is that th...

Oh, awesome! Where does she print? There are some great open studios in QLD and I can give you some names of people to reach out to if you ever want. When you’re in Cairns, check out a gallery called Northsite Contemporary Arts (used to be called Kickarts). It’s super great and has a fantastic prin...

Re: video production/editing. One facet of what I do for a job is making art tutorials for youtube, so making this wasn’t a big stretch for me. Thanks for that.

I get to keep this video on my computer and and play it every day to see your face.
FWIW - I don't think anyone is going to be saying that about my video.

I did some experimenting with some video apps I have. The result is a bit creepy.

It's so weird and cool. We didn't go into the Visitor's Centre because we had the dog with us, but we did do a walking tour of the whole general area with a local guide and it was really interesting.
I’ve been to the visitors centre. You didn’t miss much.

Re: A long four years

You need a complete overhaul of your 250 year old constitution. It is an absolute shit show. Don’t give a single person power to pardon criminals and veto your congress. It is insane. Pull yourselves out of the 18th century and become a modern country. For 4 years - the world largest economy fell in...

Good luck guys. The world is watching and hoping for a return to sanity.

Just recalled this little bit of doggerel I wrote 4 years ago - I really hope I don't have to write another one:
