the Oil Spill

one of my family members found this epic narrative my brother must have written in prep. note the use of apple IIe for the graphics and text, and the grim subject matter.
it reminded me that in grade three i wrote a short story about a dead body found on the side of a cliff.
all of the students stories were put in a the classrooms library, so that everyone could take them home and read them, and mine was very popular, until it 'was removed from circulation.'
i never got it back unfortunately.

hells bells alleycat

hells bells

on the friday after three days of 43 degrees heat in melbourne, there was an alleycat.
alleycats are urban bike races that are a hybrid of scavenger hunts and inner city orienteering. bicycle couriers tend to have the upper hand, but they're open to all comers. i snapped a brief video of the first 10 minutes or so. soundtrack is poison dart, by the bug.
