The Pacific Gyre

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while.

Vice TV have done a fascinating 12 part webisode series on The Pacific Gyre, or as they call it 'The toxic Garbage Island'.
I hadn’t heard of it until I came across this.

Head here to check out the rest of the episodes.

A giant horror movie syringe.

For the last 6 months I’ve had the creative juice drained daily from my brain with a giant syringe. I don’t know where it goes, but it doesn’t get injected back into me.

This is the effect that St Kilda Road and it’s Bain Maries has on my creativity.

I can’t handle it anymore.

It’s not until recently, back on the net discovering new things, that I have uncovered the solution to my creative-brain-drain – The Blogosphere. It’s been a long time but it’s the only cure to what I have.

So I’m back.

I’m pretty sure no-one even looks at this Sahara anymore but hopefully, that’s all about to change.

If you are watching, stay tuned for a new look and new content.

Swedish Armed Forces Test

It’s been a looong time since my last post ☹. But I’m back. . . with a test!!

Check out this online test that the Swedish Armed Forces have set up.

It takes a while so do it when you’ve got a bit of time to spare.

Check out my results! Not tooo shabby.

NavMan and TAC

TAC & NavMan should get together and put blackspots
(a site where there have been a high number of crashes
involving injury or death) on their maps.


Well, it's been a while since my last post . . . so Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that blah.

The reason for my silence is, firstly I've been super busy tanning at the beach (away from my computer) and secondly because Ed and I have been head down bum up working on our folio and getting interveiws.

Unlike Ed I'm too scared to breath a word about it on my blog in case I Jinx us.

It's such a girl thing; when girls get out of exams they say 'OMG i did sooooo badly' or "I stuffed it up' . . . whinge whinge whinge.

Boys on the other hand are always so cocky, 'Oh yeah, I smashed it', 'Twas a piece of piss'.

So in keeping with tradition I'm not mentioning it or saying anything about it and come out of the interviews saying 'Ohhhhh I dunno . . '.

We'll soon find out.

Backwards Dave

I’ve been meaning to blog about Backwards Dave for a while.

About a month ago he was spending a bit of time chatting to the crew on JJJ. He can phonetically pronounce words backwards.

He doesn’t actually read the words backwards, he reads the word to himself – to see how it sounds – and then pronounces it backwards (as you can see from the clip above).

Unfortunately Sunrise and Fox FM tried to jump on the Backwards Dave bandwagon too. They got it wrong.

Instead of tracking down the cool phonetical genius that is the Australian Backwards Dave – they managed to get a hold of another Backwards Dave. An American guy who holds the world record for the being the quickest to read backwards.

It’s nothing to do with phonetics but with the ability to read backwards.

I don’t know if it was pure coincidence that all three media stations were talking about Backwards Dave between weeks of one another – but all I know is that I wouldn’t put it past ol’ Fox and Sunrise to do some content poaching and actually get it wrong.

Pronouncing words backwards is way cooler than reading backwards.
