RIP Ross Hannaford

This is late (he passed over a week ago), but Ross Hannaford who was one of the true originals on the Oz music scene has been lost to cancer. His playing credits include Daddy Cool, Billy-T, Paul Madigan & the Humans and busking in the streets of our town (Melbourne). His guitar playing was subl...

Re: Recently viewed films

I rarely get to the movies, so most of my film viewing is on delay until they become available on BluRay. I have a few that go on regular rotation now, including Intouchable, The Extravagent Voyage of the Young and Prodigious T S Spivett, St Vincent, any number of Wes Anderson films and Birdman (whi...

Vale Jimmy Niven (keyboardist with the Sports)

Haven't posted here for a long time, and a shame it has to be for such a sad reason, but for anyone familiar with the Australian band The Sports, their keyboard player Jim Niven passed away at 10am yesterday (9th April) as a result of cancer; The Sports toured the UK with EC in the 80's. I was fortu...

Also took my son to see Rango and was very pleasantly surprised... loved the references to other Depp fi...

Re: IPad

If you have an iPhone, rather than paying the extra for a 3G iPad, shouldn't you be able to use tethering to provide 3G access to the iPad via the iPhone? Would allow you to save a lot of money on the device as well as remove the need for a second access plan.

Reading Haruki Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle at the moment. Definitely intriguing. I loved that book... my wish is that he team up with David Lynch to bring it to the screen. If you haven't read it already and you enjoy that, check out Kafka on the Shore. Also, for a great insight into the ...
