Cricket – there’s a subject!

Unless you’re from Australia, England, the West Indies, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, South Africa, New Zealand or Pakistan, you probably have no idea what Cricket is. Or you may have seen it on TV for thirty seconds, shaken your head and gone bake to your Sudoku puzzle.

Well, all I have to say on the topic is that it is the one sport I love – all 40 hours of it (if it’s a test match).

If you don’t like cricket then you aren’t civilised – most people don’t realise that is a Newtonian Law.

I’m feeling the pressure

The reponse to my first few blogettes has been overwhelming. There’s been a general lauding of my capability, attention to detail and extremely humourous approach to the intrinsic human condition.

Trouble is, I got nothing else to say that I can think of…………

Maybe a discussion on Behringer gear?

I know – I installed Native Instruments’ Acoustik Piano plugin last night and have had my mind blown by how good it is – you can hear the virtual hammers lifting off the strings, stuff like that.

That’s all I’ve got. 🙁

Bunny is my friend and worst critic

Bunny is a cool guy. He has wit, intelligence and a body that’s gonna kill him (as opposed to one to die for). In other words he’s just like me.

Trouble is, he thinks this blog is already as boring as bat-shit. I think that’s a bit harsh this early on, but given he’s me and I’m him, I can’t argue too hard. What a bind to be in.


Gumboots by Paul Simon

Will always mean a summer’s afternoon down here, with my younger cousins visiting. Filling in a post-Christmas few hours, with Gumboots playing as a 45 single on a turntable / double cassette deck combo.

Beaches are overrated

How can sand be anything but suckworthy? Everything from walking to breathing on the beach is harder than just about anywhere else. Give me a river or dam any day. The ideal mutation of beach and lake can be found in Canada – Georgian Bay for starters.


I can’t claim credit for this acronym (would its creator please claim credit with a comment).

It stands for: Would Be A Good Name For A Rock Band.

What’s the point?

I don’t know yet.

I’m thinking of just posting ideas I have combined with thoughts and feelings expressed on some forums I hang out at.

An example:

At http://themanwhofellasleep.com/gossip.html there are some superb quotes, such as:

Why should I tip the bin men? They don’t tip me for leaving the rubbish out every week.
