Williamstown (sofobomo planning)

HMAS Castlemaine

I’m going through my archives of images as part of my sofobomo preparations and found a couple of locations down Williamstown way I hope to utilise on when I’m shooting for sofobomo.

I’ve shot there a couple times before, for DPC challenges, and there’s a lot more I think I could get out of Williamstown.

Happy New Year 2009

Well, 2009 is now upon us and to mark the occasion, which doubles as the 8th anniversary of my first blog post, I feel the need to announce some New Years resolutions.

Now, I’m not going to make unreasonable resolutions like I did a few years back… this years goals will be far more achievable.

So with that, I declare that, this year I shall:

  • Post a blog post here each week
  • Twitter daily
  • Take at least one photo every day
  • Lose some weight (there’s a Canon 580EXII or two in it for me)
  • Submit photos in the DPC Free Studies every month
  • Submit photos in the PAW side challenge on DPC each week

Seems like a lot, I know, but I think I’m up to it.


Palacio de Cristal, Parque del Buen Retiro, Madrid

It’s been over two months since my trip to Madrid and I still haven’t posted anything about it here. Life gets in the way of blogging.

Anyway, all I can really say is that a week was no way near enough… especially considering that the overwhelming majority of that week was spent working. Madrid is a very beautiful city and I look forward to going back there later in the year, and hopefully, I’ll get more time to do touristy things, like take lots of photos… didn’t take nearly enough photos.

Baby Got Book

I stumble across one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a LONG time.

A bit of background first, so you don’t get any ideas about what it is I spend my time on the internet looking at.

I was inspecting the last few days of links over at HotLinks where I followed a link to a livecasting video of a Penny Arcade being illustrated – something that interested me as I

  1. like Penny Arcade
  2. have always been impressed by people that can draw well.

Anyway… while watching the video, the music backing it was a version of Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back“. I quite liked the version, and was amused by the style so I went and googled “Baby Got Back”. While working my way down the list I found “Baby Got Book” at a site I’d never heard of… “GodTube”? Despite my reservations I checked it out… and it’s hilarious.

“My minister tried to console me but that book that you’ve got makes me so holy
“My bible study don’t want none unless you got book hun'”

Good to see religion and comedy together… best way to combat fundamentalists.
