The fear I see when I look in your eyes makes you believe I’m one of a kind…

Ah, if only I had educated feet. Virtually nobody will get that, but that’s OK. Now, when most people look under their office desk, they see three things: Fluff Lost documents, or possibly a missing USB key Feet. But me? I see a recently operated on cat, attempting to sort out my wiring for me. […]

Way back when I was just a little bitty boy…

Ah, Albequerque — perhaps the Weird Al song I’ve used most for subject lines. Being over ten minutes long doesn’t hurt any in terms of lyric choices, of course. What probably does hurt me is my diet, specifically junk food. On Sunday, I was having lunch with my esteemed brother in the local food court, […]

Hard to get, impossible to hold…

Ouch. It feels right now like my whole week’s been nothing but a long, painful journey to this: In the meantime, I also somehow managed to get some work off the ground — especially yesterday, which was another 15 hour day working monster, thanks largely to the above imaged pavers not turning up for five […]

It’s time to tour the planets that make up our solar system. C’mon!

Ah, Yakko. Wise beyond your years. It’s been a weird and highly frustrating week, spent largely (and fruitlessly) trying to set down a path in my front garden, stymied at every turn by the half-truths and evasions of a certain tiling company that failed to deliver on their promises. Oh, and writing work. I sometimes […]

In-between the incredibly frustrating adventures in finally trying to put in a front path (*subliminal message: Don’t use Amber Tiles*) this week, I’ve also flung forth a few frothy and ferociously fonted fabulous words of wisdom. As well as, it seems, developing a taste for the sixth letter of the alphabet. Sesame Street would be […]

All I want is to cry with you…

Well, actually, my list of demands is just a tad longer than that. Although I’m not exactly unhappy that the man who wrote that lyric is coming back to my neck of the woods in Mid-February. Anyone want to babysit? I guess I’d better earn some dosh to pay those tickets off, now that I […]

The song’s a year long and had been playing for months…

One of my favourite Prince songs (and one that, outside of the Prince fan community, nobody’s ever heard of) provides today’s lyrical subject line. Meanwhile, I’m busy providing content over at CNET.com.au: LG RH399D: “LG’s DVD recorder offers plenty of recording space and an in-built digital tuner, but the lack of HD capability really hurts.” […]

Where did I put my floppy shoes?

I got a package yesterday addressed to “Alex Kidman Clown School, Inc.” It’s nice to see my editors taking me seriously, for a change…. Back to the serious stuff, though, and an analysis of this morning/yesterday’s/today’s (depending on which side of the dateline you sit) Macworld Keynote for PC Authority: Mac Authority: Business as usual: […]
