Newtown Graffiti

When graffiti is art and not vandalism… wowza. These guys have some serious talent. Look at the size of this piece… it’s like one of those epic Renaissance murals (except modern theme):

Artists who can work with paint and with colour are truly gifted. I want to drive around the whole city and basically just catalogue all the graffiti pieces i love:

Are there any graffiti pieces around your city that you’d like to share? Would love to see what other overseas artists are coming out with…

Secret Wood

I don’t wear a lot of jewellery, unless someone meaningful in my life has given me the item, but i have to admit that the rings from Secret Wood are quite mesmerising, and i would love to own one:

Evil Dead: Endless Nightmare

You know i have a zombie addiction… Man this game is so cool, although i must admit i’m still getting used to the control settings, i panic when i see a zombie in the periphery and then i end up getting killed by one that pops out in front of me:

I lasted 16 seconds :(

I lasted 16 seconds 😦

The game is free in the app store. Basically you just run and kill zombies and see how long you can survive with the weapons you have.

Initially your only weapon is your fists, but as you collect blood droplets you can unlock weapons with a bit more kick.

I got a nail gun :D

Who left a barbed wire trench in the middle of the forest? Seriously i keep gravitating towards it, get stuck on it, and it throws off my whole survivalist strategy (yes i’m making excuses for doing so poorly).

What’s your most meters covered/how long have you survived?

I was scratching around in my cousin’s stuff and she has like this huge Harry Potter stash! Look, I found Dobby! He’s alive!

Is it creepy having a Dobby plush? Imagine waking up in the middle of the night and it’s just sitting there… Yikes! If you could have a house elf, would you? What would he be named?

Marker Pen Anime

Has anyone else in Sydney seen this guy drawing? He camps outside the Town Hall station, or near-ish that anchor monument:

Every time i walk past there he is using marker pens to draw anime figures on a white board. He has the pic on his phone for reference and then just enlarges them as he draws.

It’s totally cool, unfortunately not permanent… I’ll talk to him next time i go past there to get his story. Who is your fave anime character?

Cosmic Wanderlust – Poem

And there I stood, at the mouth of the precipice, and looked down into eternity. If only I could see a glimpse of the future there; in the dark backdrop, I could change direction for a more favourable outcome.

It showed me nothing but shadow at first. Then suddenly, as a deep well being spoken into, it heard my thoughts and echoed them back to me in question.

A mirror beyond the form, a mirror for the soul, to look deeper into our contents.

Hypnotised by the infinity of the drop, I gazed in the hollow space longer, blinking less frequently.

When I finally freely fell in, my body like a towel to black ink, I absorbed all the knowledge suspended in those empty spaces. As I accelerated still falling, the darkness fell above, and I was greeted by Light below me.

Suddenly I was no longer falling, but floating – in the universe. Surrounded by stars and planets and other cosmic wanderlust. Free to swim and see and know – wherever I pleased to float I could go…

You shouldn’t be surprised at all to know my brother bought one of those realistic lightsabers…

He got the Darth Vader one, i wanted the Luke Skywalker one – just so we could have a showdown or something cool.

Darth Vader's Lighsaber

Darth Vader’s Lighsaber

The lightsaber makes the authentic noises when you wield it, and when you hit someone with it (yea i was attacking my brother with it).

Would your lightsaber choice be based on colour or on the character who would have used it?

A party of Dwarves stopped by in the garden on their way to the Lonely Mountain. My mom used to have mini garden gnomes and plastic frogs in and around the garden, but I think time and the elements got to them. I think my strong Dwarves will fare better:
