Thrift Store Pickups – October 2012: Starwars Goodness!


I went down to my local thrift store (Salvation Army) today and picked up a couple of nice additions to my Playstation 2 collection, as well as a really nice find way hidden in the back.

A special edition box set Star Wars trilogy release from 1997! This box set contains digitally remastered versions of the original star wars films and was released in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the first film. While I don’t watch VHS tapes anymore (DVD and blu-ray) having this in the collection is really nice. For a pick-up of only $1 I couldn’t say no. I was casually looking through some of their VHS tapes and noticed this gold box with a black lucasfilm logo on it…as soon as I saw the logo I knew it would be something worth checking out and sure enough, a star wars box set.

This box set is 15 years old today, and very collectible so quite nice to have.

Break But I’m Back, New Stuff in a Few Days!


I’ve been on a bit of a break from blogging over the past month or so, really needed to focus on work and other areas of my life but now that I’ve been away from writing for quite a while I’ pretty eager to get back on here sharing some cool stuff with technology, gaming and just simply stuff that nerds love doing.

Sit tight, I’m back in the saddle and more to come in the next few days with a view for new content every day!

Jam donuts Melbourne | Royal Donuts | Olympic Donuts


The best donuts in Melbourne in my opinion always came from the Olympic donuts van at Footscray station. Olympic Donuts: 51 Irving Street, Footscray, 9689 4819

It takes a hard heart to say no to a donut. Whether they’re in traditional ring form or something a little more exotic, there’s something about those clumps of simple, sweetened dough that we never really grow out of.

YouTube – Life In A Day: The Story Of A Single Day On Earth


youtube_lifeinaday

On the 24th of July, 2010 thousands of people around the world uploaded videos of their lives to YouTube to take part in Life in a Day, a historic cinematic experiment to create a documentary film about a single day on earth.

This is absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to check this out in a few days. Click the picture above to go straight to the life in a day YouTube site where you will be able to watch the world premier live from the Sundance film festival. You can also check out video clips from people who’ve submitted their footage to be used for the documentary and even some that didn’t make the cut. All of it though will contribute to something that will really make history!

There are so many different types of people all over the world and you’d think there are so many different ways to live one’s live but this documentary will show how common human beings are to one another, and how problems with racial divide and social unrest in our world today really shouldn’t really be as big of a problem as they really are. Maybe an experiment like this will bring more people closer to one another, and maybe will be the start of change in our world.

What Is Your Favourite Sound?


Ok so everybody has a favourite colour and everybody has a favourite food, but what about your favourite sound? I like the sound of the rain hitting a metal roof, I like the sound of Dream Theater! lol. I like the sound of babies playing together, I like the sound my girlfriend makes when she’s sleeping 🙂

Oh, I like the sound of the silence you get when you’re standing in the middle of a forest with nobody else around you.
