Getting My Mojo Back…Sort Of

(21)
April 24, 2015 • Blog, Entertainment

Well, it’s been a long time coming, but I’m getting my Mojo back…sort of. For a good while I had a fair presence on the Internet. My blog and two channels on YouTube where I talked about film, one of which was a co-channel with my daughter, who now has a new channel – Critique… Read More ›

David Carradine: The Eye of My Tornado: A Portrait by Marina Anderson

(2) Book cover of Marina Anderson's autobiographical tale

After spying this biographical tale in the second-hand section of the local thrift shop last year, I grabbed it on a whim. I was still in shock at Carradine’s death by “autoerotic asphyxiation” as determined by a coroner back when his body was discovered in a Bangkok, Thailand hotel closet in 2009. The reason that… Read More ›

Life on the Real Desert: Snakes Alive

(3) Snake crossing the road, @4ft

On the way to town today I came across a lady on the “main road” out of the estate. Standing by the side of the paved surface, clutching a hoe, she moved toward the center of the street and waited for me to approach on my bike. “You could have crossed over,” I said, “It… Read More ›

Something Big: Something We All Want?

(7) Something Big: Something We All Want

I ordered the DVD for Dean Martin’s Something Big film after realising that I did not have a copy already and that I had not seen it for ages. I love the film, or more accurately, I love the theme of the film. It goes without saying that this would be a personal favourite. I… Read More ›

The President’s New Gun Control Bill or Sandy Hook Re-visited

(2) 011713_1507_TheNewGunCo1.jpg

So the President has submitted for our consideration a new gun control bill. Just looking at the bare essentials being presented via the internet I don’t really see why the NRA has taken the automatic (pun intended) stance of deriding the Presidents bill. In case you’ve missed it the bill sets up banning automatic weapons,… Read More ›

Real Life in the Desert: The Lizards are Getting Bigger

(19) deserted house in the desert

When I first moved down here in the real desert, the lizards were these teeny little dark shadows that flitted over and around small rocks and pebbles. Now the little fellers are getting bigger and longer, and scrambling over stones and the odd smallish boulder. They must also be that bit slower as I can… Read More ›

Today Mars, Tomorrow the Universe

(1)

Monday was a real red letter day for NASA (You see what I did there?). Their nuclear powered discovery vehicle, the aptly named ‘Curiosity‘ has not only managed to land on Mars but it has sent it’s first pictures back.  Pretty exciting stuff and it’s guaranteed to pique the interest of every ‘wanna-be’ astronaut and space… Read More ›

Life in the Real Desert: Where Did All the Hippies Go?

(11) On the road again?

After promising to write about all the Navajo-horse-blanket-jacket-wearing hippies who were frequenting Quartzsite in my Life in the Real Desert “series” they all seem to have disappeared. This leaves the question of just where did all these hippies go? There are still a number of Desert Rats hanging around, but that number has dwindled as… Read More ›

I’ll Have the McTest-Tube Burger With Cheese…

(2)

So, they are working on a test-tube hamburger are they? Well that’s what CNN say’s anyway. I had a quick look at their article and found out that a couple of scientists are both ‘racing’ to develop their own brand of ‘man-made’ meat. Scientist Gabor Forgacs from the University of Missouri (otherwise known as the ‘Show Me’… Read More ›

America the Troubled

(19) Unknown-1

It’s been a very violent and bloody week for this country. First a bloody ending to a national runners event that marred the day by killing and injuring innocent people taking part in the Boston Marathon and Patriot day. That all occurred on the 15th of April this year. Two days later, a fertiliser plant… Read More ›
