Fractured Heart at the NFSA – Gotye / Illuminart

On my recent trip to Canberra, I visited the聽National Film and Sound Archive聽 …. you can find them on Facebook here …… to check it out and just have a look around. As you all know, I love all things Aussie on TV and at the movies so this was the perfect place to spend some time learning more about our history in both areas.

There are some wonderful exhibits and I had a great time wandering down memory lane. There is a reference library but I didn’t go in because I had no real reason to but mostly because I thought if I started reading, I may never leave.

Trick Shot Titus – 2 year old wonder kid

titus

Yesterday I was taking a break from life and surfing the interwebs when I stumbled across this incredible video of a 2 year old making jaw droppingly amazing trick shots.

He even manages to play against actors Channing Tatum and Bradley Cooper who, to their eternal credit, take their crushing defeat in their stride. Way to go guys 馃槢

This little boy is clearly a happy kid with quite a gift. It will be interesting to see what happens from here. Lets hope mum and dad are happy with this brief flirtation with viral fame and dont go crazy with it all ….

 

Zombie Festival Newcastle – November 17

 

zombie festival

This now annual zombie march is celebrating 5 years of terrorising the streets of Newcastle. With an expected turnout of between 400 – 500 people….and growing ….. this promises to be a fun day.

When I asked event organiser Ella how this all started, she said ‘ Newcastle had a void to fill. A friend of mine had done two Zombie marches in Newcastle previously and it just went from there. I never originally intended to do it annually but people liked it so it’s been five years now.’

Not sure how to zombify yourself? Not a problem. ‘ You don’t have to dress up to be a part of the day. We also have a dress up box and face painters over the day.’

Excellent!!

And the day is free! Lots of events and shenanigans at the museum then onto the Tower Cinemas for the best part (for me) …… zombie movies YAY.

The film festival has a small entry fee of $5.

Some shuffle along and support a great local event. If I can avoid being bitten and turned on the day, I will be back with some pics and a round up of the day next week.

You can find our undead on Facebook here –聽 Newcastle Undead Society

Thank you 鉂

Heatherbrae Fire – October 2013 #RFS #NSWRFS

 

heatherbrae from airport thursday

October 17, 2013

I didn’t take that picture. It was taken by somebody at Newcastle Airport sometime today ….. this morning I think. It looks bad, huh? It IS bad…..and it got worse.

It’s currently 9.22pm and I am sitting in my empty house, the air filled with smoke, the night sky glowing outside, knowing that I should have left an hour ago. First we got the text alert message advising us to seek shelter as the fire approaches. Then the phone call came…. on the landline that is reserved for telemarketers and the odd overseas call to use up the money I pay for it.

But I cannot bring myself to leave.

I dont care about my things or my stuff…..I have good insurance and that will all be replaced. My family has been despatched to safety, it’s why I am here alone. So why am I still here?

Revocation of Independence

Some things are simply too funny……and possibly right on target if we are all honest …… to be ignored …..

 

itzhakts

In a fit of anger her majesty Queen Elizabeth II issued the following letter to the citizens of United States of America

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

In light of your failure to financially manage yourselves and inability to effectively govern yourselves responsibly, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 鈥榬evocation鈥 in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, David William Donald Cameron, will appoint a Governor for the former United States of America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated sometime next year to determine whether any of you noticed.
