Can't let go


Australia's drug laws look hypocritical in this screenshot from a local news website.

On one side is news an estimated (and likely exaggerated) $5,500,000 worth of cannabis has been seized; on the the other side is news that cannabis is being imported "but some ask why Australia can't grow its own."

In case you're wondering, the grey boxes were placed there by me for focus.

Looking back

My last album of music was put together in 2014 and I've produced so much more material since then in differing directions.

One of the approaches that worked when putting together those tracks was overlaying material to find fresh sounds. In the video above I've gone through material from 2016 to explore possibilities.

It shows how much landscape plays a role in my music, which has been an influence since 2003 when I moved out of the suburbs.

There's still so much to consider though. I didn't use any toasted sandwich videos, for example.

And each week there are usually a couple more tracks joining the pile.

Back with another remarkable sandwich! This time made with leftovers.

Toward the end I issue a challenge for people to try adding a couple of ingredients. Think I'm going to explore this next.

Kangaroos don't want your stuff

My friend Hugh shared this photo on Facebook and it led to discussion about what it is that people aren't meant to share with a kangaroo.

Obviously it wouldn't be good for native fauna to develop a taste for fast food but I like to think that kangaroos don't want your flowers on Valentines Day either.
