Media Project Part 5: Very Senior Soldiers.

As I walk up the rain slicked streets of Paddington on a rainy Wednesday afternoon, heavy cloud hangs low over Sydney, and a persistent drizzle has settled in over the city. On this Wednesday, Victoria Barracks sits squat behind it’s now darkened sandstone walls, slightly hidden from the view of the motorists and pedestrians using … Continue reading

Media Project Part 3: I Have Killed.

I have killed, and I have been killed. I have led countless lives over countless battlefields. I have fought on the beaches of Normandy, in the far reaches of space, across the Russian steppe and on US soil.

Media Project Part 2: Circular Quay during the Vivid Festival 2013.

Due to time constraints and an interview that has been rescheduled three times I’ve decided to abandon one of my proposed stories and instead present another photo gallery, this time on Vivid.

Lest we forget.

Dad Stuff…

It’s been a good long while since I did a nice and easy opinion piece, so I thought that today of all days might be a good time to take a deep breath and get some thoughts down on paper. Er. Screen? Whatever. It was not long ago that I was asked a pretty interesting … Continue reading

War Thunder 1.29 (Review).

This post originally appeared on AussieGameGeek. Check them out, they are devastatingly handsome. Oh Facebook. If it wasn’t for one of your annoying targeted advertisements that appears on the side of the news feed in Facebook I never would have heard of War Thunder, Gaijin Entertainment’s ambitious MMO which is “dedicated to World War 2 … Continue reading
