The Troubled World Of Skatemoss

I want a fox for christmas,

A batsuit,

A trip to the moon,

And a bat I can call my own.

These strange shots come from photo-blogger, Skatemoss who I stumbled across while reading The New Shelton/Wet Dry blog which I stumbled across while reading Copyranter.

So when should I try again?

Lesser brains will explode if this Facebook error message stays like this.

Before You Get Too Excited About The Election Result, Stop Everything And Listen To This

Listen to this Sydney PEN lecture by brilliant Melbourne writer, Christos Tsiolkas about tolerance which was aired on Radio National's Book Show last week.

You know him. He wrote Loaded, the book which was made into the infamous but way awesome Alex Dimitriades movie, Head On.

What a lecture.




And an exact explanation why I can't stand either of the political parties and why I'm so disappointed with the left.

Spot on.

Wow etc.

By the way, Tsiolkas' 2005 novel, Dead Europe is a ball tearer, one of the most confronting yet beautifully written things I've read in years.
