My favourite album of all time, Modest Mouse’s Moon & Antarctic was released 20 years ago today

20 years ago today Modest Mouse released their third album Moon & Antarctic, a sprawling epic folk punk masterpiece. Issac Brocks words moved away from the urban spawl of a west being paved over, dead strip malls, and endless roads and went universal, contemplating the cosmos and our confusing place within them. He looks into his colour TV to get a view of what is outside the window,

Corona Virus, Isolation, Loneliness, and Appreciation explained by Kurzgesagt

I have been watching the animated, educational videos by Kurzgesagt for years now. They explain everything with straight forward simplicity while each video is crammed with well researched information and beautiful images and moving words. I look forward to anything they release but I have been waiting for the last month for their insight into the COVID-19 or Corona Virus Pandemic. This video explains exactly how the virus

IN-SHADOW – A Modern Odyssey

IN-SHADOW is an animated short created solely by Lubomir Arsov with the help of a few others.  It is a wordless, guided by an electronic soundtrack and imagery that says to lot about the makeup of society in very little words.  It comments on government and media collusion, propaganda, enslavement, boredom, hopelessness, and our ability to rise up and attain a higher understanding, and only then will we

Trailers for Sydney Film Fest

Sydney Film Festival starts today and Amy and I have 7 films booked in so far over the next 12 days. I thought I would take this opportunity to share the trailers for the films we are going to see, as I think they all look absolutely fantastic, and they're all so different from one another. First up, tonight is 'Anthropocene' a documentary, which is "a stunning sensory

Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse and its new take on animation

Long ago, even before a trailer had been released I read an article that told of the new animation techniques that were being employed (the combination of 2D and 3D) by the animation studio handling Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse.  Instantly my interest was piqued and when the first trailer arrived I know this movie was going to be something special visually, even if the movie wasn't great. I

Ben Swann on Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and his case of Human Trafficking and Child Sex Crimes

This story I've know about for years, has continued to get absolutely no media coverage on TV and next to none in the press, shows corruption and collusion to the highest degree and exactly what happens when you have powerful friends that are intertwined in your illegal activities, even when dealing with human trafficking and child sex crimes. Although some media outlets are now covering this case because
