first post

I've been mixing aimless downtime with mildly strenuous walking. Tomorrow we're off to Australia for a short holiday in Tasmania. I hope to report on those wacky Aussies

At tumblr I stumbled upon an unusual and unnervingly creative blog called the Trojan horse. At first I thought it was showcasing corporate output, but I think it's really more like culture jamming, or student portfolios. I'd be interested to know what you make of it. See what you think.


  1. Have a great trip. I'd love to be there in the sunshine.

    Interesting site. Not at all what I expected.

  2. I say!

    You'll be going to the 5th ODI at Bellerive Oval, Hobart, on the 23rd?

  3. Nanners. I think you'd enjoy the first few minutes of 40 degree high winds, like a hairdryer. Ghastly. And the poor volunteer firefighters have to be out in it all day, in full overalls.

    Mingers. I already OD'd on cricket a long time ago. But there is international tennis in Hobart now.

  4. I lived in southern AZ before I moved to Scotland so I know about that kind of wind that turns you into a raisin in seconds.

    The fire danger is so bad. When I was much younger I worked for the forest service as ground support for smoke jumpers. I have great respect for folks who do that. Especially volunteers.

  5. Nanners. I can remember having to walk around outside on a visit to Tucson.
