Update on Awesome

I have a terrible fear that haunts me to my very core that someone may miss out on something awesome, and it would be my fault!  I can't have this, and so I present this update of awesome things that you may have missed in recent times.

First of all, Game of Thrones season 3 is out in a matter of days!

This is possibly the best TV series ever made and season 3 looks to be insanely epic.  If you haven't started watching the show yet, grab season 1 and 2 and catch up before it is too late!

Also while waiting you can watch, School of Thrones!

If that isn't enough to make you run around in the streets naked singing praise to the heavens, then check this out:

Kick Ass 2 is actually a real thing!  It will be out this year!  Kick Ass is one of my all time favourite movies and I expect the sequel to live up to the name.

I know by now you've probably been panting so hard with excitement that you passed out.  But for those still going, here is something awesome, but a bit less over the top exciting to cool you off a bit.

Downton Abbey:
Have you seen this show yet?  I don't really know how to show its merits with a mere video clip or quote, but it is something you must see!

Here are some amusing parts with my favourite character, but it just isn't the same without the context of the show!

I'm afraid you don't get to "not like" Downton Abbey.  It's not a matter of opinion, there are those who like it, and those who are wrong.  It is the only current show that competes with Game of Thrones for the awesome crown.

Ultimately it comes down to how well done the characters are.  Their attitudes, motivations, actions and so on are all consistent and believable and it makes for a show that is somehow slow paced and yet constantly enthralling.  Genius!

St. Ali North - Cafe Review


So I was meeting a friend for lunch last week and she promised me a "Totally rad cafe that's so fancy I have at least one word I don't understand in every menu item description!" and in house cured bacon! After I finished peeing myself with excitement (we're talking a good 16 hours here) I got to the cafe!

There are words you are supposed to use to describe places like this, but I'm not up with the lingo. I feel it's something like "chic" or "trendy" or "consecrated" or something.  The point is I could have entered through the window without comment. There's also a "ride through" section, which sounds fun, if morally questionable...

I really need to work on my photography (that is to say iPhone) skills. Specifically I need to remember to take out the phone and take photos of more than just half my plate.

My plate! (With stuff on it!)

I Think I've Been Busy

The last few weeks have been rather whelming.  Not quite overwhelming, but there was some whelming action for sure. I have failed in my duty to update my blog and for that I am shamed. I was shamed.  I'm over it.

No wait... No, it's cool.

One factor of this whelming was something which I think is pretty damn cool and so shall share with all of you, my dearest readers!  Seriously, if a writer writes something in the forest and there is no one there to read it, is he really wearing a hat?  A question for the sages.

Anyway after retiring my dad decided to start a new business in an area that has a lot of experience with - travel. I'm reasonably well travelled, having been to 19 different countries, but he's been to something like 30 or more, and far more often than I have.

So for the last few weeks I've been helping make a basic website for his business, Bon Vivant Euro Tours (Bon Vivant is French for "good living"). We'll move it to its proper domain once it is fully ready to go live, but for now it's just on the Weebly address.
The first tour is going to be held across Hungary! A country that isn't yet well known for its tourism, but we'll see what we can do about that.  It's an epic 24 day journey across the nation to really get to know the culture, food and history.  What is there to see in Hungary?

And real rivers!  Not these little creeks like the Yarra!

So check out the site, the Tour Info section is mostly done, I'll update the links once the proper domain is set up and we should have pricing and so on by then too.

We hope to return to usual broadcasting next week!

No wait, I just remembered. I went to a new cafe today.  I had bacon ice cream. I'll have to write this up ASAP.  BACON!
