QLD Confidants (Photos)

I met so many great people during my stay in Brisbane, most of them were the friendliest, happiest, most intriguing and creative people I have ever met in my life. I wish I could have known them for longer but the curse of travelling is you meet amazing people and you always have to say … Continue reading QLD Confidants (Photos)

My Love For Indoor Car Parks

I have recently developed a liking for skating in and the photographing of numerous indoor car parks across Brisbane, the subject matter is grey, concrete, dull, boring and simply serving of a necessary purpose of placing vehicles in a temporary stasis. I'm drawn to these building because accessing them is incredibly easy, the floors are … Continue reading My Love For Indoor Car Parks

I Went to Oz Comic-Con and it Sucked Balls (Photos)

This weekend I decided to go to my first Comic-Con, I have never been a huge comic book fan, I did used to read The Beano and I also used to borrow graphic novels from the library which I enjoyed but never once did I buy a Spider-Man/Batman/Superman comic when I was a kid, of course I … Continue reading I Went to Oz Comic-Con and it Sucked Balls (Photos)

Our live-in landlord sent me an email

If you follow me on Facebook you may remember this status about my weird new landlord of the house share that I am in: Turns out that he did get a bit weird. Fortunately I still have my liver intact. When we first moved in he said to us "Mark an X next to your … Continue reading Our live-in landlord sent me an email

Apart from having to put down a large deposit on the bike (no jumping them off ramps) they seem like the perfect job for backpackers, getting healthy and meeting new people. Nick invited me and Donna to take a ride on … Continue reading A Short Trip With Nick Jones

Brissies have better music taste than Mancunians

I am basing this realisation solely on the gig I went to last night. Last year in Manchester I saw La Dispute play, with Pianos Become the Teeth supporting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9kg_pe-lUU La Dispute are a post-hardcore punk band with the vocalist Jordan Dreyer paying impressive attention to detail to his heart-wrenching story driven lyrics. You could summarise them as "Emo" … Continue reading Brissies have better music taste than Mancunians

Metal/Punk Bands Fucking Love Koalas

2019 Edit: I appear to have lost these images, something I didn't realise I had done. Oops. They weren't very good anyway. Who knew? Me and Donna went to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary which was fucking awesome albeit slightly expensive ($33 entry and $16 for a photo opportunity with a Koala). We got to hold a Koala, … Continue reading Metal/Punk Bands Fucking Love Koalas

I’m In Australia and All I Can Think About Is UKIP

I thought that my first post would be a picture of Kangaroo road kill or a quirky review of Vegemite, but since buying a laptop out here today, the only thing I can think about is UKIP. @DannyMThompson Piss off back to destroying wreaths laid at memorials with UAF then — Monstroso (@Phil_R_Upp) May 26, … Continue reading I’m In Australia and All I Can Think About Is UKIP
