I fucking wish Haggard would come here
Will be in Brissy tomorrow for a week. Is there anything or anywhere that people would recommend that I should check out?
CBD? If so... not much
Am going to South Bank on friday to see the art galleries.
South Bank is nice, Mount Coot-tha is a brilliant view of the city if you have means to get up there. Obviously the theme parks - Australia Zoo, Wet n Wild, Dreamworld. Alma Park Zoo is also a nice, more 'boutique' style zoo. Walkabout creek is another good little wildlife place.
Not so much interested in the parks, especially with the kiddies not yet back in school.
Am staying in the Logan area but seems that most of my time here shall be spent helping my dad & studying.
Logan huh? Dang, sorry to hear about that
Southbank is decent... if you want great Turkish grub, go to Ahmets, it's awesome.
yeah, went to Loganholme tonight and it was BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGAN central.
will check it out but will probably grab some Asian food in the "real"
Ahh, so you're heading to Sunnybank? Enjoy
There is a suburb down Logan way called "Shailer Park". Everytime I drive past I think Trailer Park
Just had my first (semi) academic co-authored article published: https://theconversation.com/miyazakis-legacy-is-sure-to-live-on-whether-or-not-he-retires-23780
I recently interviewed Joakim Brodén of Swedish metal band Sabaton. They have released their brand new album 'Heroes', out now via Nuclear Blast Records.
Unlike the band's previous releases which tell tales of major battalions, battles and armies of WWII. The new album concentrates on specific individuals of war, who risked their lives to save complete strangers, including Leslie 'Bull" Allen, an Australian stretcher bearer who saved 12 American soldiers on Mount Tambu in Papua New Guinea.
Read the full interview below.
Speaking of war, I was quite proud to see my family on 7 news last weekend:
My grandad was one of the lucky ones that escaped (at least physically) unharmed. But yeah, he definitely had the emotional scars That's my dad, his brother and their cousin in the video.
I visited Charles' grave when I went to Europe in 2004. He is buried in a war cemetary in the little town of Abbeville in France. Would like to visit Gallipoli one day to see where Jack is immortalised.
Just read this- a pretty neat article, I didn't know anything about the subject before I read it and now feel like I've got a good sense of who he was and why he was influential in animation.
My grandfather was an army engineer posted to PNG. They built a road across the Owen Stanley ranges that the Americans said was impossible. "You'll never get dozers in there!". The Australians built the road by hand with pick, shovel and dynamite. They built dozens of bridges to cross the rivers and worked in insane conditions- my grandfather said that they went almost two months without supplies and had to rely on the natives (whose hatred for the Japanese was legendary) for food. The completed the road and held it open for 9 months. If the Japanese had taken Moresby it would have been used to transport troops and equipment to cut off their supply lines. After two years his company (those that were left) was put on a ship- they all thought they were finally going home for R+R, instead they were sent to reinforce an airfield on the island of New Britain NE of PNG- if you saw the mini series The Pacific, the part towards the end where they were in impossible rainy jungle was southern New Britain. The airfield was strafed and bombed practically daily by Japanese planes. I don't know anyone who could survive something like that today. We're all too soft.
So here's to those who serve or who have served in our armed forces. For a debt most of us can't even understand, let alone repay.
Yeah amen to that.
I should be decent at explaining who he is since I've been writing about him for the past 6 months now with my Masters thesis.
I recently went back and watched some of my old favorite's on YouTube. Star blazers, and subsequently found the did a live action of space battleship yamato a few years back. I really liked them. Along with robotech they made great memories. Except for minmei! Japanese animation had a huge influence on my childhood, but I didn't continue watching it much into university.
Yeah I've got the live action Yamato on bluray - haven't actually watched it yet though
