Akram Khan’s IN THE MIND OF IGOR the most remarkable piece of dance; playing with Rite of Spring’s themes of myth and ritual and sacrifice
my two favourite arts co's together tonight: @sydneydanceco & @sydsymph LES ILLUMINATIONS is beautiful; sensual music reflected in dance
short sleeves and rum on ice; this is sydney in winter #lovethiscity (@ Sydney Opera House)
what are the odds you'll see signs of intelligent life at a random spot on earth? the punch line is the real kicker what-if.xkcd.com/60/
got to be listening to Jay Z, ’cause “Somewhereinamerica, miley cyrus is still twerkin’”
this is beautiful: Ta-Nehisi Coates on love; "How I Met Your Mother" theatlantic.com/international/…
If you arrive by boat you will not be settled in ELYSIUM; powerful movie, very well designed, but awkward w/ race, too simplistic an ending
developing a new story set in Raphaël’s world, and it’s giving me extra insights into his own story; a nice bonus, but will I never be done?
warning: tonight’s @sydsymph #johnadams show contains “lots of sax and violins” #groan
I'm masterchef-skeptic but @eatarttruck faithful; delish crispy chicken w/ couscous
trimmed my beard before bed; dreamt I shaved the upper lip right down; woke fearing I looked like wolverine
the whole noir-in-high-school thing is risky, but ASSASSINATION OF A HIGH SCHOOL PRESIDENT does it very well, w/ the good and bad that means
I may just end up living here; great, eclectic program at @goldenagesydney ourgoldenage.com.au/now-showing/
musing: Anarchism cries, the System doesn’t work for Us; Libertarianism cries, It doesn’t work for Me
quite stunning watching people discover that Assange isn’t the social-anarchist hero they really want him to be, just another autocrat
both sound only interested in timeliness? RT @SenatorWong: This says it all #ItsTime http://t.co/eNNr7mbbRZ
R&G ARE DEAD isn’t just really funny; it’s a beautiful, poignant meditation on life and death, on fate and theatre and finding meaning
ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD is my favourite play; a treat live, great @SydneyTheatreCo production w/ @timminchin & @fallofasparrow
noticing my general happiness seems to correlate with my instagrams of food and drink; I wonder if that’s causal, and in which direction
unagi rice: light on eel but delicious, crusty rice on hot stone (@ Ippudo ( 一風堂))
had my first fat-milk latte in a long time; finding the taste a little overpowering!
lots of wonderful geeking out about the (pretty awesome) potential of renewable energy at #sydcityconv by @cityofsydney #lovethiscity
politics goes #yomomma #JoeHockeySoNegative RT @SenatorWong: Joe Hockey is so negative, he's even saying 'No' to lower interest rates.
Alt J with all the hipsters tonight; great sound, but didn’t really bring anything live that I can’t get from the record
I never thought @jamesblake live would be so metal! brilliant show, loud and shattering and the sound still full of layers
PACIFIC RIM “challenges us critically because it goes against our cultural and academic training” stormingtheivorytower.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/the-vi…
THE WOLVERINE is fun, but his adventures in Japan often uncomfortably exoticising; doesn’t help that Mariko only exists for Logan’s benefit
WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE is numbingly affecting; very sweet, but so relentlessly sad it’s exhausting
Oh Canada RT @jonathanvswan: Kevin Rudd is mad famous in Britain. http://t.co/9yImN4frg5
the acting is pretty average, but PACIFIC RIM is a spectacular monster movie; does great things with the genre; totally worth going big for
according to cinema advertising, the australian government has a plan, or two. they really want to be sure we get this.
