I suck less at snorkelling
Foooo–ishhhhhhh…. Foooo–ishhhhhhh…. Images flit through my mind of Darth Vader, or perhaps a morbid future self hooked up to a ventilator, but as I practice snorkelling in the Airlie Beach lagoon, I’m concentrating more on making it feel ok to breathe through a snorkel than anything else. As you may have read a few entries […]
On our last day in Cairns, Laura and I went for a trip up the coast with a friend we met in the hostel: Matthew, a fellow Briton from Newcastle. The plan was to see as much of the Atherton Tablelands as possible. Our intentions were far too optimistic, though, and we really only got […]
Walking back to our hostel in Cairns, we saw lots of bats roosting in a couple of trees. I’ve never seen so many bats during the day. It was weird, but somewhat demystified them for me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57rUNe0q99Y
Swaying Sex Zombies
In my laceless trainers, jeans, and £6 ‘Pepsi’ t-shirt from Primark, I’m one of the smartest patrons in the nightclub. Yep, in a city where it takes the utmost mental and psychological acuity to wear anything but shorts, it seems that ‘pants’ is how you differentiate smart from casual. And perhaps there is a telling […]
I suck at snorkelling
It’s official. I may have generated enough tricks and bespoke styles to just about make myself buoyant at the average swimming pool, but with enormous flippers on my feet, a mask that prevents any kind of olfactory respiration, and the prospect of inhaling while one’s mouth is underwater, I’m reduced to a floundering wreck. And […]
Cuddling Cairns Koalas
On Thursday, our first full day at Cairns, Laura and I took a trip to Kurunda, a rainforest village to the Northwest. We took the ‘skycar’ funicular to get there, which consisted of a few miles of towers and little carriages propelled along the cable. It was very quick and we got some excellent views […]
Delirium and Rebirth
After a night of semi-consciousness, forcing myself to march through the jetlag like a wet bog, muddy hands clinging to the heels of my awareness, I slept and slept and slept and emerged from my egg, ready for an early start on our first tour. This is what it must feel like to be one […]
My game is out!
Last night the Xbox build of Miasma 2 made it onto the marketplace. It’s the culmination of about a year and a half’s work with Pete Lewis, to whom I am very grateful for his hard work. Some other awesome guys chipped in, like Julian Cole for writing an entirely custom music score, Paolo Parrucci […]
New acoustic compositions!
I’ve written and recorded two new songs. They’re both instrumental acoustic compositions that I semi-re-de-constructed over the Yuletide period. You can check them out on my music page. Thanks to Mike for recording me rather impromptu in his garage!
