Subject:Perth Fringe requests
Time:11:45 am
I did a heap of Fringe reviewing last year, and had a really good time.

I encourage everyone to peruse the Fringe program so here's what's on today https://www.fringeworld.com.au/whats_on/whats_on_today/

I'm unlikely to go much this year - haven't even seen a single mermaid yet (sigh and they're free!) because of us going to Finland and saving the money, brainspace and energies for all that's involved in that.

I'm looking sadly at my review site on Google Plus which is right here - I did many Fringe reviews last year -https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/107887485468519838860/stream/8861fa96-02e8-492a-b9ef-229895f21fbc which I've not been able to populate with Fringeness. So here's an invite any of you attending Fringe to post your reviews, links to same or if you'd like to let me to link to anything you've written let me know. At least I can then enjoy it vicariously and my review site has some Fringe love.

Subject:Respectful disagreement
Time:09:39 am

This is in response to live journal user fremantlebiz 's post today. http://fremantlebiz.livejournal.com/1200480.html I've commented, but I've never seen him make comments readable, and I thought I'd share here too. When I was a kid I was always questioning why there were no Swans on the Swan River, when it was well known that was what it was named after. Everyone drops the original first word "Black" Swan River. With the cleaning up of the river and replanting of fringing vegetation the swans are returning in greater and greater numbers, and I'm glad to say that future kids may not need to ask the question I did. For a while at least. Mullet River - I don't know. I would suggest Black Bream River as a fish more characteristic of the river. It stays around even when the jellyfish aren't around so much. Would we eventually drop the Black in "Black Bream River" too? This was also posted at http://leecetheartist.dreamwidth.org/364733.html. You could reply there by clicking here.

So what with the uncertainty about the LJ servers going to Russia, Dreamwidth has seen an upsurge and more activity. Want to connect with people over there? Find new friends and reconnect with old ones? I'm probably going to deeply consider deleting my LJ account. I'm leecetheartist on DW, and the lack of ads is refreshing.

 Ow ow paper wasp sting, ow, ow. Teach me to lean into a bush to get the mail as a wasp flies past, ow, ow.

In good news, the fall into the corner of the doorway wall last night where I fell heavily onto the side of my right wrist going crunch did not actually fracture my wrist, x-rays report. Quick application of ice has minimised the bruising, doc said that it would have been severe if we hadn't got right onto it.

Subject:Weirdest identity theft ever.
Time:09:30 am
Well that was dodgy. Whitfords Volunteer Sea Rescue just telephoned me. They said that some one using my call sign just tried to log that they were leaving Hillarys with two people on board, but wouldn't say who they were, what vessel they were, or where they were going.

The operator thought it sounded odd, and looked up my details - noted I was a single person kayak and gave me a ring.

1.) What kind of dodgy life uses some one else's call sign?

2.) Why would you bother, as WVSR kindly accepts log ins even if you don't have a membership and will rescue you whether you're a member or not.

and

3.) If you don't tell them where you're going how the heck can they rescue you if you do fail to log out?


WVSR thought I should be aware someone is masquerading as me.

Subject:Wadjemup in the news and about time.
Time:04:44 pm

I wrote about our last stay on Wadjemup here -
photos.google.com/share/AF1QipONtv9HgeOrDLLw1gGodbrHUgeYRWLiqYa4bXvQqUytcPdma49Jvi03yGAefjZ7Kg  so if you missed it I think it's worth a read and there are some nice photos.

What reminded me (and what you really should read) was
this article that's doing the rounds from the ABC, and bloody about time too. A friend emailed me expressing amazement that he'd never known about this history. (Maybe he would have if he'd bothered to read my article) There's no wonder that the indigenous community feel so angry about the sweeping under the rug of such things.  

We stayed in the Quod - the one time terrible prison - previously when we couldn't get accommodation anywhere else. It was oppressive to go into for me at first.  Seemed to hit me like a tonne of bricks. Guess it was the thought of it, or such happenings soak a certain psychic residue into the walls.  

But all the ghosts, at least the part where we stayed, must have been brought back to the mainland and washed by the silver gulls in the water sweeter than the ocean. Then joined with the other spirits as per Whadjuk belief.

That said, I personally think that the whole place should be a museum and memorial, it is not fitting or respectful that it should be used as a hotel.

Subject:Suddenly no time
Time:09:51 am
I have this marvellous new Cintiq tablet - pretty much 9 to 5 of a weekday I am drawing large sized works, cause it's been a while (I'm getting this in here because I did extra yesterday) so am going to have less time to do these entries because I get really tired in the evening and can't concentrate on writing and just want to read my new Joel Shephard.

Went to Cervantes on the weekend and the Gravity centre, so much fun! Ate Western Rock Lobster for two meals, so yummy!
Saw the Pinnacles (never been) with bonus rainbows and also Lake Thetis. Extraordinary. Took many photos, may share later.

Inktober is upon us, I'm keeping up! You can see the efforts  here .  Last night's effort was particularly successful. 

Western Shield Camera Watch has more images to classify.  If you know anyone who would like to suggest it to them. The new ear field guide is great!

WABA at Mt Claremont tomorrow. Er, Saturday, yeah, thanks rattfan, Saturday.

Also the longer wargame crowd is meeting on Sunday in Perth. https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/214109/games-be-played-waw-9th-october and they also have a Facebook page for those that do facebook.

Subject:Halfway through first Spring
Time:03:23 pm
So Djilba is in full swing - Sprinter you might call it and it's my favourite of our six seasons. Don't let anyone tell you there's four seasons here, a ridiculous notion. The native wisteria has been out for weeks, and the wattles are preparing for Kambarang (sprummer), and we've seen the kangaroo paws coming out for a couple of weeks already, early Kambarang will be coming, I reckon.

We got to see sundews earlier this Djilba it was more Sprinter, - and they were lovely. We should take another look, they'll be much more advanced now. I didn't realise that this corner of W.A was quite the Sundew capital of the world with many species.

The BBC had a good article on the silliness of interrupting women who are wearing headphones - some of the responses they list at the end of the article are priceless http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-37222517

We went to the Rob Hancock memorial disc golf event on Sunday, the rain was kind, fortunately! It was a good day, and fun. Today was disc golf at Tomato Lake and absolutely perfect conditions. I had an unusually good score, the extra practise on Sunday must have helped.

Well, that was fun. If you liked Whale Rider, Footrot Flats, and Lord of the Rings scenery. If you've ever lived in a country town. Or dealt with the department of child services. If you would like to have the cast list well and truly on the non-Caucasian side. A very humorous romp with the odd uncanny note that NZ films tend to ring then I think you'd enjoy this.

" Stretching from the wheatbelt to the Nullarbor Plain, this is the largest intact temperate woodland left on earth. In fact, it is about the same size as England.

But it's not just size that makes it so special, it has incredible species richness. The GWW has around 3000 species of flowering plants, a fifth of all known flora in Australia. It also supports an array of mammals, reptiles, frogs and birds. Aboriginal occupation is currently dated back 22,000 years and it is also a place of cultural significance. "

Subject:Some fanfic doesn't make me hiss and back away
Time:12:41 pm
I usually regard fan fiction with loathing, usually repressed with polite silence when people go on about it. On very rare occasions - usually about once every couple of years, a notable exception may come to my attention. There was that one with Captain America's public relations http://idiopath-fic-smile.tumblr.com/post/117149098318/steve-rogers-pr-disaster-gen-4k or the one with Sherlock and Mornington Crescent http://definewisdom.livejournal.com/36181.html . This time it involves Hermione and money. Lots of money. http://the-toast.net/2016/05/11/the-first-line-of-every-fan-fiction-i-have-started-writing-once-i-found-out-emma-watson-was-named-in-the-panama-papers/  This was also posted at http://leecetheartist.dreamwidth.org/354240.html.

Subject:Unexpected side effects.
Time:03:42 pm
 A side effect of these Trekz bone conducting headphones I did not expect. The start of the Shoes Remix of This Too Shall Pass from OK Go sounds like pop rocks are going off in my sinus cavities. I don't have the volume up very high but nevertheless. This was also posted at http://leecetheartist.dreamwidth.org/353986.html. You could reply there by clicking here.

Subject:The Foreigner by The Darlington Theatre Players

The Foreigner a comedy by Larry Shue directed by Rob Warner.

Indubitably remarkable.

There are kind of spoilers below. Mild ones. For those who don't want to be spoiled the short form is: Go see it, it's funny and it does my favourite play justice. Then come back and read my review.

Subject:New, to me, art supply store - Oxlades.
Time:04:52 pm
 Worth knowing if you need art supplies in the area, or just a different take than Riot or Jack$on'$. They're a Queensland company, and have been here in Western Australia for a couple of years now, but aren't well known. Worth having a browse through.

Oxlades Art Supplies 2/49 Guthrie St, Osborne Park WA 6017
Monday to Friday 8:30 to 4:30 Saturday 10:00 to 2:00

 Well, I must say these Trekz bone conducting headphones are great - I've never been able to wear headphones or earplugs comfortably at all, this is pretty good. Pretty good sound too. Plus I look space age and all.
