it lives

I am still alive. But haven't posted for 18 months... Maybe Facebook took over? Well I'll have a little think about the future of blogging for me... many friends have interesting ones and I do some half interesting stuff from time to time. But will I stay here? Move it? Try a new idea...

Return of the Lazy Bastard

Yes I have returned.

So much went on over the xmas break I don't know where to start.

It was great to have fair amount of time off after a pretty much straight run of 18 months work. Not that I'm complaining. Far from it. But every now and then you just need to switch it off. 2008 had a fair few decent projects, docos and dramas, even a bit of music. So no complaints. Here's hoping this year will be as good.

Xmas had the requisite running around like a blue arsed fly. Lots of food and family, so that was OK. Had a friend stay with us from Canada for a few days which was nice to catch up. Saw fireworks for NYE. And lot's of other stuff. Can't believe I'm back to work next week and work emails are starting to creep in. Still, me no complain.

So now wading through the xmas pressies. Some real nerd pleasers this year:

Dr Who Box Set Series 3 & 4. Say no more.
The Dark Knight - still an awesome film. Enjoying more now I've watching it again.
Thunderbirds Boxset - for those days I feel like getting up at 6am and watching telly, just like when I was a young-un.
A Writer's Tale by Russell T Davies - really good book on writing the scripts for Dr Who. Relates to every artist I think.
Logic Pro 8 Tips & Tricks - reference guide for those "wtf?' moments when writing music with Logic.

Also have three Batman graphic novels to read, The Dark Knight Returns, The Killing Joke and Batman:Year One.

So 2008 was a nerdfest like no other.

Beers wise, not too many new ones. Did try a James Squire Porter. Only mildly impressed. I don't know why but some Aussie beers seem only just a cut above well made home brew sometimes. The Old Speckled Hen I had before it was in another league. Oh well.

Well there you go. Hopefully I will keep this blog updated instead of being a lazy bastard this year.

What happened to you?!?!

Hello readers,

Yes it's been a million years since I posted anything on this blog. Mainly because 2008 has been head down bum up working away in the salt mines of the Australian Audio Post Industry. It's been a great year for work, but sadly not much else. For those interested in what I have been doing check out

I am now on my xmas break so more time for spending time with the lovely wife, dusting off the synths, writing some toons, sampling some new beers (of course) and generally living life. Of course the next few days will be full of running around for xmas, but the payoff is heaps of goodies and free food.

Anyway I plan to get more active on the Blog, which means the return of Beer of Week, What I'm Reading, and other favourites.

Stay tuned! (I promise I will be back soon).

Leon of Leichhardt

It's a Coopers Pale Ale, my current "standard issue pub beer".
