 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.

 Worth knowing if you need art supplies in the area, or just a different take than Riot or Jack$on'$. They're a Queensland company, and have been here in Western Australia for a couple of years now, but aren't well known. Worth having a browse through.

 Well, I must say these Trekz bone conducting headphones are great - I've never been able to wear headphones or earplugs comfortably at all, this is pretty good. Pretty good sound too. Plus I look space age and all.

I don't know if many people with kids of the right ages in my area read this blog or not, but I think this little workshop might be quite worthwhile.

I'm trying to keep a record of daily goings on at Swancon, but it's going to be a lot easier for me to do that at https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/Yj4kMB at Google Plus. You shouldn't need to log in or have an account, you can just read.
