Why Twilight Makes Me Want to Quit My Job (via Existential Angst)

September 27, 2010

I think I had a similar experience when I read these novels!

However, for me, they reminded me of some of the key aspects of the Christian Gospel; in particular, the promise of a perfected immortal bodily resurrection and eternal life. 🙂

Why Twilight Makes Me Want to Quit My Job It was on my honeymoon that I realized a career change was in order.  My catalyst: the Twilight saga.   I wish I were joking — this is how it happened: It began on our flight to Dubai, the first stop on our honeymoon itinerary.  The flight from JFK to Dubai is long — I had 10+ hours of flight time ahead of me, after dinner.  Luckily, Emirates has dozens of in-flight movies, available at your seat, on command.  After a long year of late work nig … Read More

Breastfeeding in public (warning – offensive content) (via B O H O M A M A M O J O)

August 30, 2010

Excellent. Gets the point across.

Breastfeeding in public (warning - offensive content) Women who breastfeed are constantly indecently exposing themselves. It really is quite offensive and someone should make it stop. Look at this gal, did the modesty gene skip her? Wait…Well, this is a bad example. Let’s try again. Hmm…Just a minute. I’m sure I can find better ones than these… Eh, still not offensive enough. I’ll check one more time. That is better. LOOK AT THAT! I see about a half inch of boob. DISGUSTING. UGH. Look at that … Read More

Karnivool – Sound Awake

May 5, 2010

I have lost count of the number of times I’ve listened to Karnivool’s awesome album “Sound Awake” (2009 Sony EMI). My favourite song on the album seems to change according to my mood, but I particularly like “New Day” and “Simple Boy”.

So I figure that they definitely warrant a mention on here, as I find their music so beautiful, powerful and inspiring. It’s music like this that makes me feel pretty super about being an Australian (not that I didn’t feel good about my nationality already!), and it’s so exciting to hear some great melodic hard rock being made by my fellow Aussies.

I would probably describe them as being similar to Tool, but a lot happier and with Aussie accents… but I don’t want to box them in as being just an Australian answer to Tool, because Karnivool are a lot more diverse than that.

“All I Know” – Sound Awake

“Simple Boy” – Sound Awake

Karnivool’s singer Ian Kenny is also lead singer for Birds of Tokyo, another superb Australian band.

“Heard it Through the Grapevine” – Covered by Birds of Tokyo for Australian radio station Triple J.

Watercolour pencil on paper, 2008.

Ok, I’m pretty sure this one is watercolour pencil. It was so long ago, I can’t quite remember it… Pencils dipped in water, rather than drawing then painting over them witha paintbrush.
