Also one of our t-shirts would look great on you.
We discovered some wild tomatoes in a local park and I have been enjoying them as a little afternoon snack. Yay footpath food!
Well this is just a little bit frustrating.
In 62. Three Films with One Idea on Lounge Ruminator, I discuss a shift in my podcast research, the shock of HomePod’s discontinuation and three wonderful films that challenge us to think differently. 🎙
‘Sculptures in the Garden’ at the Wollongong Botanic Garden
I must say that I’m generally not a fan of ads, even if they promote me, however what @Vincent has done with Sublime Ads in the discover feed on @Gluon is very subtle, unobtrusive and tasteful. Thanks for promoting Lounge Ruminator in such a way!
Hanging out with my friend Rocky and scrolling through Micro.blog is a lovely way to start the day.
Magpies are gorgeous birds but the real, non-painted ones will occasionally try to kill you.
Hazy evening walk
Update: I have figured out the very limit of my toaster’s toasting capability, so that I can get it as close to burnt as possible without actually being burnt. Super-crispy + Vegemite = joy ☺️
If you haven’t listened to @HemisphericViews, now’s either the best or worst time to start. This time I suggested we go into it without prepared show notes. The result was 021: Ad Lib!. @Burk discusses Mars, @canion covers neckties and I chat about peanuts. Listen if you dare! 🎙
In episode 61 of Lounge Ruminator, my long-time friend (and former drama teacher and boss), Fiona Finley, joins the podcast to explain her background in theatre, the value of the arts and why performance is great for kids. Have a listen! 🎙
Inspired by this tweet by @canion, I have the Kramer-esque ‘Fusilli Mac Martin’ from @NTKF, a fifth-anniversary pin from @relayfm, a Tweety PEZ dispenser (also à la Seinfeld) and a @HemisphericViews plaque. What a collection! 😜
Looking for something to listen to this weekend? In Contemplating Telepresence on Lounge Ruminator, fellow Hemispheric Views co-host @Burk joins me to discuss hobbies, the ever-changing world of online work and education and the effects of open offices and commuting.
In ‘Playing to the Audience with Evan Kerr’ on Lounge Ruminator, my long-time friend joins the podcast to discuss his experience as a pianist and music teacher. He also shares his thoughts on how digital technology has been transforming performance and education. 🎙
A beautiful morning at the Continental Pools
Sunset and pelicans along the Blue Mile
The wonderful @NTKF organised a surprise early-birthday event with my mum and sister, which included peach-picking in Darkes Forest, a bushwalk through Dharawal National Park and lunch at Sublime Point overlooking Wollongong. The best! 😍
Earlier today, @NTKF took this photo of little Rocky falling asleep on my leg. She’s a cutie bird!
Overlooking Port Kembla Beach from the saltwater Olympic pool… I’ve always loved this place! @NTKF and I made sure to visit this week, as no summer is complete without it.
