I was sitting on the couch today, and then BAM our massive christmas tree comes falling down like a tree in the woods. Decorations shattering all over the place and water soaking up all the presents( lucky there was only two)
I searched for the angles head but i couldn't find it, she's gone to a better place!
My Mate Doug and I are fixing up our bikes for Christmas this year!!
We left it a bit late with everyone starting to shut down for Christmas and New Years. People tried to tell us that if we took our frames to them they wouldn't have them done until the new year. We wern't going to take no for an answer so we rang around Melbourne looking for places that would sandblast and powder coat our frames. After about 30 phone calls and quotes we found a sweet joint in mordy that sandblasted our frames quick smart,
After picking up the naked frames I went straight to Moorabbin were we had found a Powder Coating Business that was keen to get our bikes done in the next couple of days. Things are starting to pan out....It pays to ring around
I've been cooking at school and its really awesome, i get up in the morning and don't have to worry about making some shit sandwich anymore. Each day we have been making at least three different dishes, shit fills you up!!!
I made fresh pasta and gnocchi on monday
I've got to get myself one of these vacuum sealer gadgets!
I was in a short film the other day. My mate Ellery called me up a few days before the shoot and asked me if i was keen. I've never acted before, but it wasn't an opportunity to miss. So i wagged school for the day and headed down to Ellery's old holiday house in Hillsville.
The film was about a young kid going off to war and the confusion of the whole situation. Pretty much i played the kid going off to war and there was another lady who played my mother.
The whole situation was very new and exciting to me. It was interesting observing how a film is put together and all the different shots needed for each scene. Most of the time spent was setting up lights, cameras and the positioning of everything for each different scene. Acting is hard work!.......even tho i didnt have many lines.
The film should hopefully be edited by the end of the year, i'll post some more photos when i get sent screen shots.
Dear Connex you’re a fucking disgrace. How dare you waste my time and over half of Melbourne’s with your shit fucking service. Stop slowing this city down with your lazy broke ass system. You have so many fat staff walking around doing nothing, and u still cannot find the time to keep people informed on what is happening. Since when does a Sandringham train go down the Frankston line without warning? Also your bus services can suck my balls. A 40-minute trip shouldn’t take four hours, I could be half way to Sydney by now. And lastly to the stupid connex woman who tried to talk back to me and my mate….I know where you live!!!!
My friend Jimmy and i made the last minute decision to go on a day trip during the long weekend. We decided to go to Cathedral Ranges which is about two and a half hours out of Melbourne. The night before we over packed making sure we had enough stuff JUST in case we stayed the night, tent, sleeping bags, hammer, hacksaw .....stuff like that. After a long drive we set off on a days hiking mission.
About ten minutes in i started to feel the wrath of being unfit, and the regret of not bring my asthma puffer along. An hour later i was tired and hungry, i had only eaten two pieces of toast all day and my stomach was asking for nice feeding!! That was when it hit me, i had left the packing to Jimmy and all we had to eat and drink where two muesli bars and a small 250ml bottle of water!! With so little on hand the rationing started!! half a muesli bar each and a sip of water at a time.
About two hours in we made it to one of the Mountains peaks. The views where awesome, so we climbed up the rocks to get some sweet shots!.
Walking up the Mountain was considerably harder due to the fact we had no sweet hiking gear on. Instead we overcompensated with two jumpers each, some old dingy runners, jeans and a business shirt ( Jimmy ).
While on the walk Jimmy recognized the calls of the wonderful Lyre Bird. Excited to find the bird we followed its calls, scaling off the track deep up into the mountain.
The Lyre BIrd is rarely seen in their natural habitat and are most notable for their superb ability to mimic natural and artificial sounds from their environment.
This is a video i took of The Lyre Bird (bad quality, but the music is great)
Be vvery vvvvery quiet!
Tougher conditions meant tougher walking
And a few hours later we had made it too Cathedral peak...what a view
After seeing Wombat crossing signs everywhere we where hoping to come across one on the drive home.
Unfortunately this is all we got!
And after 8 hours of hiking with hardly any food or water, i decided to treat myself a nice Seafood dinner.
