Behind this smile

New decal up on the window at my home library site, Altona North featuring Whaea Ripeka. Part of the #behindthissmile campaign being launched on Saturday at Williamstown Library. Speaking of Willy library one of my clever co- workers made a wee display featuring the funny signs by Reddit user obviousplant, the small sign says #37 Dudes who lost their shirts. All of the community inclusiveness and laughs are to be had at your local public library.

Conference abstract – Cinema at the end of the world

momoa road to palomamomoa the red road

I’m submitting an abstract for a film conference in Nov at Monash Caulfield here in Melbourne. I want to present on Indigenous masculinities as represented in Jason Momoa’s ‘Road to Paloma’. I’m going to look at representations of Indigenous masculinities and violence and I’ll probably reference JM’s TV show The Red Road (also starring Kiwi Martin Henderson) I’ve decided becoming the foremost academic expert on Momoa is a natural fit for me. It’ll make Keanu hella jealous, too :D

A Girl walks home alone at night – Iranian vampire Western noir

Had a hardcore Hipster Melbourne Moment (TM) on Saturday night. We went to Fed Square and saw A Girl walks home alone at Night (2014) at ACMI cinemas. It was aces! The framing and soundtrack, the pace and story were great and I can’t do justice to it with words, you just have to see it and know that it was 99 minutes of grouse. And there’s a cool cat. An actual pussy cat who makes it even better. We then celebrated this filmic magic by indulging in Hipster Melbourne Moment (TM) 2.0 when we got burgers from a food truck. That’s what all the cool kids in Melbourne do, get food from vans. We had a few quick ones at Young & Jackson’s pub across the road and admired the saucy nekkid painting of Chloe. Pretty great Saturday night.

Books for xmas

Built a PNR book xmas tree in the lounge. It’s decorated with ice hockey spunk tree decorations I made at werk.

I also made a PNR Xmas display at werk featuring my fave Nalini Singh and a few other grouse authors.

I gave Jason Momoa a new hat so he could feel part of the season festivities. He’s enjoying a bit of saucy xmas reading.
