CURRENT NEWS:

    3 June 2018
             
    Wow. From 16 January 2017  t o 3 June 2018, I
    haven't been able to do a thing with this site.
    Too busy. Lot of work, lot of  daily "self-
    improvement", aka getting back to normal. I
    think that's the longest time this site has ever
    been without an update, in its 12 years online.
    Not everything has been about  just existing,
    though.

    (Note:  Must apologize to users. I had no
    idea the site was such a mess. Hopefully
    this will clean everything up.  I do this
    myself because I really don't like templates.
    The problem is that the site making
    software is old, and not too responsive to
    changes in tech.

    1000 SQUARE CHESS

    This is what a 1000 square chess set looks like:


















    This game uses most of 5 chess sets.  If a
    normal game of chess is a battle, this is a war.
    Imagine what  5 queens can do, and take it from
    there.  The joke is how to make a computer
    program to run it. It' is a fascinating game, and
    with two kings on each side with special
    evasion moves, it's a fun game to play.

    BOHO COOKBOOK

    This very ambitions, not  to say totally
    unprovoked, book  is based on years of
    exposure to good cooks who know how to make
    a great meal out of  very little. It's about fun, and
    that, to me, makes up for any level of sales.

    Readers will be pleased to know that it also
    includes proper veneration of toast, the thinking
    person's answer to everything. So there.

    COMMERCIAL CONTENT WRITING

    I was born in an advertising agency. I write
    content for a living across a truly vast range of
    different types of  subjects and businesses.  ( I
    have a whole page on Sydney Media Services
    just listing what I write about.  Commercial
    Content Writing, currently about half finished, is
    a more analytical approach to the realities of
    modern commercial writing.

    Anyone who remembers the original Sydney
    Media Jam site will remember that there was
    some music of mine on it. That got basically
    sabotaged by the music software maker, Music
    Works Personal, going out of business. It's still
    the baseline, best music software I've ever seen
    for writing music, and it's a real loss. However, it
    is now possible that some music may be
    recorded and made available on the site, and
    my wannabe YouTube channel. hopefully soon.






    SITE USERS ALSO NOTE - GOT SOME
    VERY CATTY REMARKS ABOUT THE SITE.  
    THIS IS A BROWSING SITE FOR PEOPLE
    INTO ART AND LITERATURE, NOT A
    WANNABE BUZZFEED LOOKALIKE.

    IF YOU DON'T LIKE THAT, DIE. I  DO NOT GIVE A
    RAT'S ARSE WHAT YOU THINK AND NEVER WILL,
    ARE WE CLEAR ON THAT SUBJECT, CRETINS?

    (Any excuse to say what I think of these damn
    phonebrains will be used extensively...)

    INFORMATION

    My Author Page on Amazon- I'm so glad to have
    good quality print books. I was truly embarrassed to
    discover that the old books were such terrible quality.

    Contacts- Contact me through Sydney Media
    Services. This site doesn't have a contact
    page, and gets way too much spam. Please
    note contacts are in email form only.

    ER, UM... MAJOR DEAL HERE - ABOUT THE
    SIGNED H.G. WELLS PAINTING BELOW:













    IT' WAS PAINTED BY MY FATHER AND SIGNED
    BY WELLS ON HIS TRIP TO AUSTRALIA IN 1934.

    CLAIM TO FAME IS IT'S THE ONLY ONE ON
    EARTH HE EVER SIGNED, AS FAR AS IS KNOWN.
    (THEORY IS THAT NOBODY ELSE GAVE HIM A
    PAINTING TO SIGN. HE SEEMS TO HAVE SIGNED
    EVERYTHING ELSE.)

    THE U.S. H.G. WELLS SOCIETY HAS VERIFIED
    THAT THE SIGNATURE LOOKS RIGHT, BUT
    HASN'T ACTUALLY CONDUCTED A TEST. THE INK
    IS INDIAN INK, THE POPULAR INK FOR
    FOUNTAIN PENS AT THE TIME, HENCE THE
    BROWN COLOR THROUGH OXIDIZATION.

    IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN BUYING THIS
    PAINTING YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED
    TO GET EXPERT ASSISTANCE
    REGARDING PURCHASE.

    The price is $100,000 USD, with no exceptions,
    take it or leave it. I don't know and I don't care
    what the market thinks.)

"THE SINGER"
WATERCOLOR ON
BOARD-MOUNTED CANVAS.

This is my original avatar. Yeah,
really, watercolor. It can be
done. Just scrape the canvas
to get rid of the white spirit,
and this is what happens.

    Dragon is
    one of my
    all time
    favourites.
