Here in Australia, this is what has been happening over the past few days. The media is largely ignoring it, despite it being one of the largest protests in this country’s history. My state has also just passed laws that will come into effect in September that put restrictions on protesting which could lead to two years imprisonment. Our Prime Minister won’t even acknowledge that this has been happening.

Reblog this!

Please get this circulating. Australian media refuses to cover it and the government is pretending it didn’t happen even though there were people on their doorsteps at Parliament house. People in Australia are discontented with the way asylum seekers are treated like criminals, indigenous people are still being treated horribly, that our prime minister is a racist, sexist, homophobe who appointed himself as Minister for Women, that our health care is threatened, that our environment is being treated as a commodity, that our university funding is being cut, and that our Prime Minister doesn’t “believe” in climate change and that this country now only caters to the rich and conservative. And that barely scratches the surface.

What this government does is not in our name and we need to get the message out there, loud and clear.

Glenfern Valley Bushlands 15-03-2014

For a year now, I’ve been attending the monthly working bees that the “Friends of Glenfern Valley Bushlands" runs to rehabilitate the area.

It used to be a council depot, and thank-fully some thoughtful individuals sought to have it kept from being cleared and developed.

It’s a beautiful piece of land whose vegetation varies quite significantly, and I’ve had some really meaningful times there “communing with nature”; that was the impetus for me deciding to join the group and help out.

At each working bee I’ve taken photos of the area we’ve been working in, and I thought I may as well put them up here, in addition to them being added to their modest Facebook page.

Pharrell Talks Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Making Meaningful Music, Blurred Lines + More

I know very little about Pharrell, but after watching this interview…I like what I hear. I think he’s got it right.

My friend Julio Ojeda-Zapata is taking photos of the new Mac Pro next to all kinds of other previous Macs and posting them to his Google Plus account. So cool.

I was looking up stuff about the Statue of Liberty and I somehow ended up in a Wikianswers wormhole. These stock photos have a lot of unanswered questions.

Pharrell Williams - Happy

It won’t surprise those who know me well that I’m the 107,191,780th viewer of this video, and that today is the first time I’ve heard this song. (I don’t listen to the radio.) But boy am I glad I stumbled upon this on YouTube! I really fuckin’ love the harmonies and harmonies are why I keep coming back to soul and R&B. What a great song, Pharrell.

Certain Death

Today, from a slow and steady plod, I accelerate my death with one Mars Bar, one Magnum and one Gay Time.*

Today, with quiet desperation, I shoot them one by one into my veins; they find refuge inside my arteries and in the dry caverns under my vital organs.

Today, I mark upon my calendar the day that two grey hairs revealed themselves to me upon my head, certain in their intent.

Today, I’m makin’ ice-cream!
