Personal preferences.

I chainsaw first and then transport. But hey, whatevs dude.

Hardly surprising, when the Crumbs and Gilbert Sheltons of the hippie era were exposed to material like this during their impressionable years.

Where do you begin?

What is wrong with this picture? Wrong question. What is NOT wrong about it!

Catalinas have played a major role in Australian aviation. This plane flew a survey mission to prepare air routes to South America for QANTAS.

Aces Flying High

The main Transport Gallery of the Powerhouse Museum (Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences or MAAS) in Sydney Australia is an impressive space and the centrepiece is the Consolidated PB2B-2 CatalinaFrigate Bird II” flying boat that sits proudly suspended from the ceiling. This was a variant of the PBY-5 powered by two Pratt and Whitney R1830-92 Twin Wasp 1,200 hp engines and fitted with the taller tail and larger rudder of the PBN-1 Nomad, built under licence by Boeing Aircraft of Canada Limited, Vancouver in 1944. Boeing produced 67 PB2B-2 in Canada between September 1944 and March 1945, mostly for the RAAF (47) with the rest going to the RAF (Catalina Mk.VI) and US Navy.

This big Cat was operated by the RAAF (A24-385, Bu.44248/JX630) but did not arrive in Australia until September 3rd, 1945…

How the hell did they get away with it?

I watched Schindler’s List again yesterday, and I was outraged. Where were all the black female SS officers?

Now, it’s important you get this right.

Lying about cop behaviour on social media: Okay.

Being called out by cops on social media for your lies: Not Okay.

Suffer in your jocks, snowflakes. YOU in particular, Hank.

[Chief Brandon del Pozo] has learned that people who post anti-police statements on a public forum, such as their open Facebook or Twitter pages, tend to become very uncomfortable when engaged directly.

 When former city councilor Haik Bedrosian posted to social media that the department’s new badge design “belongs on a robot soldier in a dystopian future police state,” this chief respectfully responded in a private message.

“Writing it off … is your prerogative and your opinion, but you should also take seriously the months of careful work a lot of people put into it,” del Pozo wrote, according to Seven Days. “They were not robocops, but nearly all born Vermonters who have a deep affinity for the city and its police.”

Bedrosian says that he was shocked by the intimidation in the message, and even after deleting the message and blocking the chief he said, “I remain intimidated by Brandon del Pozo to this day.”

To this day. To this very day.

Somebody please throw a rubber spider at that guy.

Getting Revved With George Lazenby.

Best Rev weekend ever! Yesterday: Becoming Bond, the story of how a car salesman and male model named George Lazenby snagged the role of James Bond. Today, the movie itself – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. And George Lazenby himself at both screenings to add more incredible details to the story of his incredible life.
Photos to follow. And a couple of stories…

The trailer for Rev 2017. Some of these movies may be available in your territory already.

For more details about Rev, look here.


Mr Allen’s ad noted that it was a privilege to be granted an apprenticeship and urged people not to apply if:

– Just because Mum and Dad said you need a job. You need to want a career all on your own.

– If you think you might lose your licence once, twice or even three times.

– If you have a drinking problem.

– If you do recreational drugs.

– If you think it’s OK to chuck sickies on your birthday or the day after a big night out etc.

– Got some kind of cool crap in your nose or a hole in your ear? Forget it – go join the circus. This is a job where you are representing my business and I don’t suffer fools.

– If you can’t pass a drug test on your first day, don’t apply.

No follow up news that I can locate, but given the positive response I’d say it’s a safe bet that Mr Allen got the apprentice he was looking for.


Kiss. The 2017 version. The final version.

I posted my first version of this about ten years ago.  Earlier versions took the kissing entities from the same fractal but I was never happy with the colours. This time I combined two, which required some patience and editing skill. The background was a challenge all its own.

I prepared this for the tenth art competition over at Fractal Forums. Follow this link to Kiss, then have a look at the other works. Members only allowed to vote, but you’re certainly welcome to admire.

Recommended viewing: Acid Eye comes with a bonus – a 360 degree video.

I’ll never smirk at a cop on a pushbike again.

Perth, Saturday night: thug taken down!
