of course there's more

Memory loss. Lost thread of last conversation. Happens often.

And so, Thursday continues...

now I rememberWell, not really remember, more like another soapbox, this time involving photography.



Mandatory day off

To save any more skin falling off, it's time to stay indoors.

The week was quick to get me out in the sun. I stayed too long there.

Thursday confusionSo, sunburn tears the arse out of the week. Mandatory days off. Memories of Ella Bache. Printmaking with photopolymer plates.

cab driver - me, transporting you

The cab driver scenario rears it's ugly head again. You looking at me?

Help a poor Kiwi, resident of Australia become a New York cab driver.. do it. Make it a project. Find me a way. I'm getting older and I need to do this. And I want to do this.

New York - and a cab licenceNew Yorkers - I need a cab licence. Organise it.
The unusual passion for driving cabs resurfaces once again.

kite buggy returns

Eventually I had to get it right. At least one year since I last had the thing going - a hiatus caused by a serious worry that the newly reconstructed shoulder would be damaged by such activity as getting my arse hauled around by large and unwieldy kites.

kite buggy season
Major movement - kites and kite buggy out and we are out checking the wind, the gear, and the nerve.

More vision, better vision, seeing well even

Excitement. Well, perhaps a small quickening of the pulse rate - new glasses, new prescription I should say. First in 4 or 5 years.

Profound difference - now I can read again.



Holiday ends, as they do

And there it was - the end of it.

Bugger.

Holiday eve, really

There was something else I had to say...

YouTube can handle the speaking.



Slightly further on

Pontification on the advantage of non linear blogging. http://Soup.io being one example. http://ffffound.com/ another. The power of the combined click sorts out the dross. Apparently.

The perils of Thursday

The perils of Silent Hill - not as good as we had hoped


I had been expecting a psycho sexual event full of madness but found the thing to be relatively sane, if you can call horror sane. The story looked good, but the controls are too esoteric for me. Ported, I think, from Playstation.


It's damn hard to find a good psycho horror. I may have to depend on the one that resides in my head.


and then it was ThursdaySilent Hill 4 fails me, 12 seconds failed me, just about everything failed me.
