The West  Australian Boardgaming Association has a new website. It looks pretty swish! wabainc.com/

I've been to the one in Innaloo a bit lately. It's pretty good. And it's all gluten free. All of it. *gibbers slightly*

Well that was dodgy. Whitfords Volunteer Sea Rescue just telephoned me. They said that some one using my call sign just tried to log that they were leaving Hillarys with two people on board, but wouldn't say who they were, what vessel they were, or where they were going.

The operator thought it sounded odd, and looked up my details - noted I was a single person kayak and gave me a ring.

1.) What kind of dodgy life uses some one else's call sign?

2.) Why would you bother, as WVSR kindly accepts log ins even if you don't have a membership and will rescue you whether you're a member or not.

and

3.) If you don't tell them where you're going how the heck can they rescue you if you do fail to log out?


WVSR thought I should be aware someone is masquerading as me.

Weirdest identity theft ever.

I'd never heard of the instrument. It makes an appearance albeit in balisetty costume - in a deleted scene in David Lynch's Dune. So, folks, I give you Patrick Stewart playing the Chapman Stick



There's a guy in Adelaide who plays this instrument really well - very worth a listen to. http://andysalvanos.com/

Note: environmentally and socially responsible feminine hygiene products ahead. So if you or anyone you know is interested in stopping landfill, and waste, want to support vulnerable women AND a Western Australian company, take a look here. I wish I'd known about them before this. Damn fine product too!

 Inktober collection so far here https://plus.google.com/collection/glfKkB  Today's theme is 'creepy' - I'll take suggestions but I'm going to the rooftop cinema tonight so earlier would be better so I can do it over dinner or waiting for the movie to start.

I wrote about our last stay on Wadjemup here -
photos.google.com/share/AF1QipONtv9HgeOrDLLw1gGodbrHUgeYRWLiqYa4bXvQqUytcPdma49Jvi03yGAefjZ7Kg  so if you missed it I think it's worth a read and there are some nice photos.

What reminded me (and what you really should read) was
this article that's doing the rounds from the ABC, and bloody about time too. A friend emailed me expressing amazement that he'd never known about this history. (Maybe he would have if he'd bothered to read my article) There's no wonder that the indigenous community feel so angry about the sweeping under the rug of such things.  

We stayed in the Quod - the one time terrible prison - previously when we couldn't get accommodation anywhere else. It was oppressive to go into for me at first.  Seemed to hit me like a tonne of bricks. Guess it was the thought of it, or such happenings soak a certain psychic residue into the walls.  

But all the ghosts, at least the part where we stayed, must have been brought back to the mainland and washed by the silver gulls in the water sweeter than the ocean. Then joined with the other spirits as per Whadjuk belief.

That said, I personally think that the whole place should be a museum and memorial, it is not fitting or respectful that it should be used as a hotel.

Forgot to mention that we also saw Postmodern Jukebox in concert, and they were awesome. Especially Kylan DeGhetaldi being able to race up and play the Perth Concert Hall organ. Look for his revised Elements on youtube, amongst other things. #pmjtour

I have this marvellous new Cintiq tablet - pretty much 9 to 5 of a weekday I am drawing large sized works, cause it's been a while (I'm getting this in here because I did extra yesterday) so am going to have less time to do these entries because I get really tired in the evening and can't concentrate on writing and just want to read my new Joel Shephard.

Went to Cervantes on the weekend and the Gravity centre, so much fun! Ate Western Rock Lobster for two meals, so yummy!
Saw the Pinnacles (never been) with bonus rainbows and also Lake Thetis. Extraordinary. Took many photos, may share later.

Inktober is upon us, I'm keeping up! You can see the efforts  here .  Last night's effort was particularly successful. 

Western Shield Camera Watch has more images to classify.  If you know anyone who would like to suggest it to them. The new ear field guide is great!

WABA at Mt Claremont tomorrow. Er, Saturday, yeah, thanks rattfan, Saturday.

Also the longer wargame crowd is meeting on Sunday in Perth. https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/214109/games-be-played-waw-9th-october and they also have a Facebook page for those that do facebook.

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]
reader 
court transcriber [tags:  the day job, the gulag]
transgender person 
Greens voter
photographer [new hobby, shiny new camera]

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!

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.
