Hi fellow Rioters! I count myself lucky to have scored myself a gig with the Art Department on a feature film currently shooting in Canberra. Galore was written and is being directed by Rhys Graham, who grew up in Canberra.
My reason for approaching Rioters for assistance is simple; the script calls [...]
Having been intrigued by the fencing off of a large parcel of land adjacent Charnwood shops for some form of development, I looked for any indications.
Look where they’ve placed the DA notice; hardly accessible to read.
I took a photo of it – but it required me to stand on Lhotsky Street…
I took this photo last night of the spectacular clouds over Canberra.
I only had my iPhone, which didn’t cope well with the available light; but I was hoping if this got posted, others who got better shots might post them.
This formation lasted less than ten minutes and is seen over the [...]
Great news, following the crap-house job Barr has done of the Education portfolio…

Has anyone else been receiving calls with nobody on the calling end, a long pause, then an automated “goodbye”? We had 2 last night, one well after 10pm, and another today at 130pm…
Any idea who it is?
I rather suspect it has something to do with the lovely people that ring telling me my [...]
A friend, who has lived in the first stage of Macgregor West for about 18 months, recently received an unusual water bill; featuring excess water charges of well over $400.
This is unusual for many reasons, but mostly because it is only her living there, and besides the usual washing and toileting, she uses [...]
I just called Belconnen Family Practice to make an appointment to see my doctor, only to be told he is deceased and the Practice no longer exists as of March 27… Now I have to find a new Doctor, as the practice which has taken all the patient files seems to have little interest in [...]
3.40pm this afternoon, my wife and I were driving down College Street, and pulled up behind a dark blue Pulsar (or similar car), the mid 20′s female driver and passengers puffing away on cigarettes… of course, the inevitable happened, as the lights turned green and the car started off, the driver threw her cigarette butt [...]
