Hope you got inspiration from my 2013 effort?

Thanks. I think I'm more haunted by your 2013 effort. By the end of the month I might have caught up to your 5pm on the 2nd of November.

Hey guys,

 

Don't want to be too much of a shill - so I'll post this once. I've recently collated some of my photos into a small zine - it's available for purchase here: http://mwd.photography/Buy-my-art

 

Only mentioning this because a number of gents in the thread have shown a consistent interest and been incredibly helpful in providing feedback and my progress (such as it is).

I don't know what a zine is but some beautiful pictures there. Hope they all sell quickly.

For anyone who's interested, my orchestra is playing a concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre today at 5pm.

 

Good program. The Shostakovich Piano Concerto is an amazing piece, very light-heared and jazzy, with a fiendishly difficult solo part played with great flair by Stefan Cassomenos. I've enjoyed the rehearsals.

I used to go to the Melbourne one and get a haircut and shave. It was great. Best haircut I have had, always happy with it. And a nice shave too. A bargain at $55 with approximately ever 7th one free (they do a card with stamp for every $50 spent).

But the original guy has moved on (maybe to Sydney if you are lucky) and I am not as impressed by the new guy. Needed my haircut again after 2 weeks rather than my usual 5. Might try them again but am looking into a few other places at the moment.

Worth a try for you I think.

On the topic of haircuts, I believe that its completely wrong way around that women should receive so much more attention and style choices and pampering of their hair than men. For God's sake most of us will be bald for the 2nd half of our lives!

Regarding Amouage, Interlude is certainly well loved. I'd also suggest sampling Jubliation XXV, Memoir, Lyric, and Reflection. I own 3/4 of those (not Lyric).

Sounds great.
Cox, Stefan gets around, he played for us earlier on in the year, very accomplished and great fun!

Currently in Thailand. Always interesting to note that department store brands are quite different from those at home. And sometimes, they're not just different, they're amusing too!

Few department stores do sell good stuffs such as Loake, churches, filson etc.Depends where you go. Central embassy shopping centre has all big names including Tom ford and such.

Hey coxy, do you have a concert or know of a concert that will occur on the 19th December? Looking to plan something for the weekend prior to Christmas. If you got any ideas, thanks in advance.

Not demolished, mind you. They seem to be leaving the façade intact. But they are doing horrific things on the inside and at the sides. Really, really bad.
There was so much history in that place. Original brick paving and outhouses at the back have all been ripped up/demolished. They seem to be building extensions on one side which, if I guess right, will involve demolishing the polychrome brick exterior walls.
I had a quick peek inside the front door (which was open - the place is full of tradesmen). The interiors, which had been restored by a restoration architect in accurate late-Victorian style, with faux oak wood-grained joinery, stencilling, and elaborate polychrome detailing to the plaster cornices and roses, have all been repainted stark white. I think the kauri floorboards may have been ripped up too.
Basically, the place has been raped. It was one of the most original period houses in Melbourne. Now it's - wrecked. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I just can't for the life of me understand why anyone would want to do such a thing.
This stuff is getting out of hand.
I'm in one of Melbourne's leafy burbs. Its happening here too to an alarming extent.
Perhaps a longer rant later.

I get a haircut every 6 months - whether I need it or not. $28
