  1. Wow, they've revamped BZP again. Wasn't expecting this. 

  2. It's been quite a while since I've been on BZP.

  3. ​Finally finished Crime and Punishment. My fourth Dostoevsky, and absolutely superb.
  4. And so I return from the good old outback, and stars vanish behind the ceiling once more. Nothing quite like outback camping.

  5. There Will Be Blood (2007) A modern classic, and one of Paul Thomas Anderson's best films, if not his best. Very well acted and shot. Apart from the odd line of dialogue, it captures the atmosphere of the early 20th century superbly. Leaves one with a lot of food for thought. Third time I've watched it and it's still absorbing, intense viewing. The soundtrack is also brilliant and atonal. 2007 really stands head and shoulders above pretty much other year this century for authentic, high-quality historical movies - Zodiac, No Country for Old Men, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and of course, this.
  6. Life of Pi. Good book, hadn't realised how many metaphorical levels it worked on until I read it. I am even more impressed by the film now as well, for the way it adapts the book without holding the viewer's hand.
  7. What is dank will never die. Not sure if this one's been posted before:
  8. Nice profile pic.

      Thanks man. The guy was inspirational. ...Unless you are a militant nudist. Lol

  9. Diddy Wah Diddy - Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band. Easily one of the best blues-rock covers I've ever heard.
  10. I think The Who have become one of my favourite bands purely on the strength of two albums and a few assorted songs. Whataya know.

      I'm a full-fledged fan of The Who now. One of the few genuine supergroups in the '60s and '70s, along with Led Zep.

  11. Last night, I dreamt I was drifting aimlessly through the town mall on Australia Day (day after tomorrow), and picked a fight with a bearded man. I then ran into a nearby carpark after its conclusion. Apart from the strange and clinical mood I found myself in, and the smoothness of my every movement, it wasn't a particularly "out there" dream.
  12. The cold knight doth deign to tread the warm wastes of Ta-Wahi, 2001.
  13. Rock 'N' Roll Damnation - AC/DC. I love Powerage.
