Meet my awesome friend [personal profile] rattfan  He says:



This post is to introduce my revived Dreamwidth journal. 
https://rattfan.dreamwidth.org/

At the moment I have only a couple of friends on it, so this is a shout out to folks who might use Dreamwidth as their primary journal and only take a glance at Livejournal now and then, that I’m here and would like some more friends, please! Or people I’ve lost track of who only live on DW. 

Leece and Chaosmanor, would you mind sharing this post on your DW journals to see if any of your friends would like to acquire me?

I'm a pet owner [ two delightful representatives of rattus norvegicus, Dario and Barnaby]
science fiction fan [Supernatural, space travel, zombies, apocalypse fiction, conventions, gaming]
writer [mostly in hiatus]
gamer [RPGs, board games, Scrabble nut]

About writing: My most recent creation is Nightsiders, a collection of stories set in a future Perth abandoned when climate change becomes too severe to tolerate in Western Australia. 

I don't watch a lot of television but have adopted Netflix and Iview. My growing list of favourites includes Supernatural, The Walking Dead, Fringe, Helix, Lost Girl, I Zombie, The West Wing, Jessica Jones. Netflix is my friend, except when it gives me a hard time for using a VPN to access the US Netflix menu."

I have had a very sore throat for the past couple of days. Very tired, I think I had better have a nap. In happy news I have now come into the possession of a Wacom Cintiq 27QHD touch which is working amazingly for me. It's annoying getting unwell when I just want to work with this great new tool!

I sure enjoy my Nexus - but the Nexus 6P is a very nice beast indeed. Get a chance to win, (and incidentally gain me more chances to win) by following this link - wn.nr/Z6ESfh

So Djilba is in full swing - Sprinter you might call it and it's my favourite of our six seasons. Don't let anyone tell you there's four seasons here, a ridiculous notion. The native wisteria has been out for weeks, and the wattles are preparing for Kambarang (sprummer), and we've seen the kangaroo paws coming out for a couple of weeks already, early Kambarang will be coming, I reckon.

We got to see sundews earlier this Djilba it was more Sprinter, - and they were lovely. We should take another look, they'll be much more advanced now. I didn't realise that this corner of W.A was quite the Sundew capital of the world with many species.

The BBC had a good article on the silliness of interrupting women who are wearing headphones - some of the responses they list at the end of the article are priceless http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-37222517

We went to the Rob Hancock memorial disc golf event on Sunday, the rain was kind, fortunately! It was a good day, and fun. Today was disc golf at Tomato Lake and absolutely perfect conditions. I had an unusually good score, the extra practise on Sunday must have helped.

 Basically, if you see something (or I guess hear something)  - say something.  https://www.feralscan.org.au/ There's an app too.

"35 per cent of all global mammal extinctions since 1500 have been Australian (30 out of 84 world-wide extinctions). Australia has lost 29 mammals since European colonisation, and feral predators are implicated in 28 of these extinctions." http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-08-19/fact-check-does-australia-have-one-of-the-highest-extinction/6691026

Well, that was fun. If you liked Whale Rider, Footrot Flats, and Lord of the Rings scenery. If you've ever lived in a country town. Or dealt with the department of child services. If you would like to have the cast list well and truly on the non-Caucasian side. A very humorous romp with the odd uncanny note that NZ films tend to ring then I think you'd enjoy this.

So the wonderful people at Marloo Theatre up in Greenmount, Western Australia are doing Wyrd Sisters for quite a few performances.

Here's the website - http://www.marlootheatre.com.au/  But they're doing one special performance on the 22nd, in AUSLAN for the deaf and hard of hearing - so if you, or anyone you know would be interested, there you are. 

AUSLAN Version of Wyrd Sisters.

All without leaving your chair! https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/birgus2/western-shield-camera-watch/classify

Western Shield has a citizen science zooniverse project - if you're a Western Australian, this is practically in your back yard compared to most other Zooniverse projects, so you might be interested in a local do. Everyone else, here's the fierce and mighty denizens of the primordial Jarrah forest - the terrible Quenda, the dreadful Grey Kangaroo and of course, the Quokka amongst many other fierce creatures. For science!

Perthites might be interested in a free talk on the Great Western Woodlands, from the Wilderness Society. It's on at Central Tafe tomorrow night. RSVP here.

" Stretching from the wheatbelt to the Nullarbor Plain, this is the largest intact temperate woodland left on earth. In fact, it is about the same size as England.

But it's not just size that makes it so special, it has incredible species richness. The GWW has around 3000 species of flowering plants, a fifth of all known flora in Australia. It also supports an array of mammals, reptiles, frogs and birds. Aboriginal occupation is currently dated back 22,000 years and it is also a place of cultural significance. "

I usually regard fan fiction with loathing, usually repressed with polite silence when people go on about it. On very rare occasions - usually about once every couple of years, a notable exception may come to my attention. There was that one with Captain America's public relations http://idiopath-fic-smile.tumblr.com/post/117149098318/steve-rogers-pr-disaster-gen-4k or the one with Sherlock and Mornington Crescent http://definewisdom.livejournal.com/36181.html . This time it involves Hermione and money. Lots of money. http://the-toast.net/2016/05/11/the-first-line-of-every-fan-fiction-i-have-started-writing-once-i-found-out-emma-watson-was-named-in-the-panama-papers/

 A side effect of these Trekz bone conducting headphones I did not expect. The start of the Shoes Remix of This Too Shall Pass from OK Go sounds like pop rocks are going off in my sinus cavities. I don't have the volume up very high but nevertheless.

The Foreigner a comedy by Larry Shue directed by Rob Warner.

Indubitably remarkable.

There are kind of spoilers below. Mild ones. For those who don't want to be spoiled the short form is: Go see it, it's funny and it does my favourite play justice. Then come back and read my review.
