  • Jaydiohead

    Jaydiohead – Jay-Z meets Radiohead – Minty Fresh Beats: Something about Jay-Z must make him infinitely mixable, because this is one helluva mix, slotting right in alongside The Grey Album and the Linkin Park crossover of a few years ago.

  • Australia Day

    Woo Australia Day! Barbeques, sunshine and whatnot. Now that I’ve experienced sunburn for the first time in my life (stupidity in leaving out key areas when applying sunscreen yesterday at the beach) and decided it’s not a pleasant experience (no, really, I mean, I understood that before, it’s just more personal now –  the idea […]

  • Movie Review: In Bruges

    In Bruges: Dark-as-pitch comedy about a couple of hitmen (Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson) who are banished to Bruges, an historic town in Belgium, by their boss (Ralph Finnes) to lay low after a botched hit. A few good laughs and a great performance from Farrell, but there’s little enough redemption for any of the characters. […]

  • High Fidelity

    High Fidelity, by Nick Hornby, an extract: I see a woman on her own, Saturday -night-smart, off to meet somebody somewhere, friends, or a lover. And when I was living with [the ex] Laura, I missed… what? Maybe I missed somebody travelling on a bus or tube or cab, going out of their way, to […]

    Ah, Telstra. (via Kelson)

  • Inauguration Song

    The Presidents of the United States of America – (Obama is) Moving In. The Presidents are still rocking it :)

  • Unsporting should be un-Australian

B. de Villiers, third ball of the second over, Australia v South Africa, 20-20 match, gets a Tait special in his gut, edging off his bat. In pain, he keels over and inadvertantly hits the stumps, out hit-wicket. The man is doubled over in […]

  • Atheist message denied in Australia

    An Australian advertising company, APN Outdoor, refuses to run advertising for atheists, similar to those run overseas, such as the prominent one in London. Absolutely disgusting, blatant religiousism in a supposedly free and forward thinking country.

  • The MacBook Wheel

    Apple announces the MacBook Wheel: it’s the ultimate iPod-MacBook crossover. The keyboard is dead, long live the wheel.

  • Movies 2009

    Last year I did a preview of the 2008 movies, and ended up misreading half of them (21 is not a heist movie, Cloverfield was the most bleh since the second Matrix, and let’s not even talk about The Forbidden Kingdom – not to mention the fact that I missed entirely the second half of […]
