A Splash of Scarlet - charcoal, acrylic, digital
Pretty much finished! And I finally came up with a name I’m happy with too. The only things I would like to change now are to make her lips more scarlet, to match the title, and develop that logo a bit more. I’m thinking of putting a black widow in the middle. Yeah! That’d be cool!

Not that I’m boasting or anything, but I was the model for this work ;)

Dudley

This is my contribution for Day 12 NaPoWriMo – maybe it’s a found poem, maybe it’s blank verse, maybe it’s comedy or maybe it’s just an exploration of what happens when you replace words with Dudley.

Dudley outbreak in local school!
New Dudley flavoured Tim Tams.
Would you allow a Dudley in your house?

Dudleys take on Pope at Vatican audience.
What do we want? DUDLEY! When do we want it?…

Shorts Thoughts - Two for the price of one!

Last night was my fourth Melbourne International Comedy festival show for 2014 –  ‘Laughable’ by Jennifer Wong. I feel like I need to tell you how I made the decision to see Wong’s show, because it’s important to me. After having booked my tickets to Frank Woodley and The Boy with Tape on his Face, I decided that I needed to support female comedians. So I went through the festival website and…

NaPoWriMo - One to Sixteen

Last night I was thinking about William S. Burroughs and cut-ups, so today’s poem was created by writing sixteen lines, some of which had something to do with each other, others are more like observations of my surroundings. I numbered each line and then used a random number generator to re-arrange the lines into the poem.

One to Sixteen

Let the world remember us
Librarians shush as I walk through

Watching Movies: Weekend Overkill

I haven’t done a Watching Movies post for a while, somehow life got in the way of taking myself to the cinema, but I thought I’d make up for it by seeing four films over two days. This post, therefore, will be short reviews of each of the four films, in the order that I saw them.

The Wind Rises (2013)

The first of this weekend’s celluloid dreams was Studio Ghibli’s latest offering ‘The Wind…

Short Thoughts: Winter is Coming

Show three of my MICF for 2014 was ‘Winter is Coming‘ performed by Backwards Anorak. As you may be able to tell, the show was a Game of Thrones parody. The first thing I should probably mention is that I’m not a Game of Thrones fan – I’ve never attempted to read the books, and I’ve chosen not to watch the HBO show because the one or two episodes I’ve seen were far to cruel and bleak for me;…

Short Thoughts: Frank Woodley

Short Thoughts: Frank Woodly

My second show of this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival was ‘Fool’s Gold’ performed by Frank Woodley. It was held downstairs at the Melbourne Town Hall in a sort of art deco (quite big) dungeon . Now Frank is what you might call a veteran performer, and is well known to the Australian audience, first appearing (according to wikipedia) in 1987, the year my younger sister was born,…

NaPoWriMo - A Haiku

Just when I thought I couldn’t be busier in April, what with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival gigs I have booked and the awesome stuff on at the Wheeler Centre to go to, along with commitments to work and uni readings and assignments and maintaining a social life, I have, on a whim, decided to add NaPoWriMo to my list of things to do.

Robert H. Richards IV, a wealthy heir to the du Pont fortune, has been spared prison after being convicted of raping his three year old daughter. Delaware Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden sentenced the admitted serial child-rapist to probation on the ground that he “would not fare well” in prison. The case echoes the affluenza scandal in which a judge spared a rich child a prison sentence after he had killed four people on the grounds that he was so rich that he couldn’t distinguish right from wrong.

Rich, admitted child rapist granted probation because he “would not not fare well” in prison [trigger warning] - Boing Boing

This judge and prosecutor should be disbarred, and Robert H. Richards IV should spend the rest of his life in jail. This is a disgusting and reprehensible miscarriage of justice.

No one fares well in prison, that’s kind of the point. 

Seriously, what the actual fuck!?
