Asher goes to a bullfight

By 23 May 2010 2

Asher Floyd is one of the best photographic talents Canberra has ever produced. (I'll concede there might have been someone, sometime, better, but I have no personal knowledge of who that might be). To this city's great loss he has been, in the words of his website "travelling the world" for ...

[First filed: May 21, 2010 @ 10:45] One of the tragedies of Parliament House was that when it opened in 1988 it had built into it an intricate mechanised system for moving correspondence around the building. Ten years later the internet had obsoleted the vast majority of its work. But "ton...

By 21 May 2010 20

Do two wrongs make a right? It seems amongst the things the ACT Government DOES have money for is throwing these signs down around Civic to harrass smokers and non-smokers alike. If only they'd spent the money getting the bright young things getting about in their t-shirts putting these si...

I wonder why they need them up there?

By 21 May 2010 12
