Around the maze of tents
We slink

I recorded this in the basement studio we made in our house back in 2014 - 2015; wh...

It was Black Friday yesterday. Friday the 13th. Which has become a promotion for the #metoo and #metooNZ movement - wear a black shirt, show that you are supporting a change in our culture. There are lots of discussions beginning around workplace sexual harassment. I a...

HALLO! I haven’t written in a little while. But I HAVE been doing things. Many things. A wide wide variety. For instance, yesterday I drove a digger. I moved some soil and some rocks. I almost flipped the digger over at one point cos it was quite precariously perched o...
