Hello, Perth

A quick update from the road (I guess sky) touched down in Perth this afternoon, quite tired. A short walk and some nice asian chicken later and I’ve got nothing bad to say about the city! Tomorrow kicks off three days of conference action, for details about this large event that deals with social action…

wine review: Clonkilla Hilltops Shiraz, Victoria, 2009.

Boquet: Dark fruit, dark spice. Palate: Tanins, dark fruits and spice. Medium finish. This has the zing that I think of, when I think of shiraz. But that tannin action doesn’t distract from the other characters of this wine.The bottle says it could be cellared for a while to tame it, but goes well now….

an update

Been pretty busy on various things. Dad’s 58th over the weekend, we hosted a dinner party. I cooked a three course meal for fourteen people and somehow it all came off without a hitch. The menu was selected from the recipes I’d had most experience with, so starter was pumpkin and cumin soup, mains was…

Powers Cosmic GG Zombie Comp video!

Well, we thought about it for a long time and then almost ended up not making an entry at all…. Then we changed our minds and decided that we would do a slightly different take on the whole zombie-video thing.. Elroy combined his two loves: not sleeping and zombies and the result was the following…

New Boards of Canada ?

New Boards of Canada impending? Or was it just a blip over the horizon radar…? “@bocpages Their site and myspace just got a black background. I don’t think this is just me. I thought I would let you know.” 8:34pm

Buttons loves his lollypop.

So Stacey has an old cat with a sweet tooth! I hear in Canada they feed them saucers of maple syrup for breakfast. Anyhoo she’s upped it to YouTube, it’s cute, so watch it!

The Coctivor’s Opportunity

I dont know whether to panic or cheer, or just head to the kitchen! I wasn’t sure where this presentation was going for a while but this guy ends up making a serious case for an overlooked aspect of our evolution. Thinking is tasty!

Wine Review: Obikwa Cabernet Sauvignon South Africa 2009

Appearance: Plummy! Boquet: Stone, spice Palate: Sweet spice, warm berry at the front of the mouth, berry aromas. Calm, short finish leaving warmth. This looks like South Africa’s answer to Yellow Tail. If so, it’s got more presence and character than it’s New World companion. It’s got body but it’s fairly fleeting which in a…
