You're doing it wrong

By 11 December 2008 24

Spotting this Toyota Echo on my morning commute made me do a quick double take. It is on (or should that be off) Canberra Avenue in Fyshwick, just after the Ipswich Street intersection. It looks pretty clear that the driver had been driving the wrong way on the dual carriageway that would normal...

By 11 December 2008 6

By 11 December 2008 7

The Radiance Dance Project - "The Human Touch" photos and information sessio

[First filed: December 10, 2008 @ 10:05] Like most sensible men in Canberra I've always got time to talk to Min Mae. In common with those men, despite never having seen her express any anger, I've also picked up a certain air about her suggesting it would be a very, very bad idea indeed to be...
