It’s lonesome away, while your writing and all
By the screen glow at night, where the cursor does call
But there’s nothing so lonesome so morbid or drear
As a blog with no posts for a whole friggin year
Now the public is anxious for the quote to come
Something witty and warm that won’t make them run
The data’s gone all cranky and the engine’s acting queer
Oh what a terrible blog with not a thing for a year

How does your suburb deal with monotony of every day utility objects and make them more interesting?
Walking around Bondi Junction I found some nice beautification, including art on traffic light controller. These are all titled “days one” by Stephen Evens.
I’m sure are more than these 3 I found around the streets.
1, 2, 3
A striking image I caught at sunset in Chinatown, Sydney. The man looks over his shoulder, just as the UFO descends to snatch him.
Having just watched the first episode of The 100, I felt the need to write about one flaw of the episode. Why are they spacing people they don’t like? It’s a waste of resources.
The 100 – how big is your airlock?
I can see the rational for removing people. They have a small society, limited space to contain it and feel the need to have a drastic deterrent for crime.
But it is just the wrong way to do things, and here is my reasoning:
- They are all part of a small closed ecosystem (a space station). They are all worried about dwindling resources, especially as the people in charge know there is a problem. Why eject resources into space?
- The person is biomass, just kill them and use their body as fertiliser.
- If you really need to space them, strip them first. Reuse their clothes and anything in their pockets.
- If you have to space them, why do it from a large air lock? Isn’t that a lot of air to waste, all ejected into space?
- If you eject that much air into space, won’t it affect the orbit of the space station? And require a correction later on?
It is nice to see more Sci-Fi on TV. I just wish they thought a bit more about the science.

Inner city Sydney seem to be full of construction sites building apartment blocks, or converting old buildings into them. Here is a shot of one construction site squeezed between buildings in Chippendale, with cranes overhead.
Around Sydney there are more signs to remind pedestrians about cyclists. Amongst there I found a few telling pedestrians to be aware of Extra-Terrestrials over head.
I mean, what else would a bicycle displayed above the people mean?
(If this means nothing to you, you need to go watch more 80’s SciFi movies.)
