Atari VCS

The “VCS” stands for Very Cool and Sexy, surely.

I have a real affinity for this 2600 retro styling – it was the first gaming machine I ever owned (the Jr to be specific). Months and months of mindlessly delivering leaflets around the neighbourhood was all worth it!

And yes, in case you were wondering, I achieved ‘Neo at the end of the Matrix’ level zen-skills at Enduro.

The Atari VCS will be available later this year for between $250-300. That seems expensive.

Citizen scientists discovered a new aurora. They called it “Steve”.

The Atlantic:

This new feature differs from the long-studied “classical” aurora in several ways. It can be seen from much closer to the equator than its more famous twin, and it emanates from a spot twice as high in the sky. It was also first described and studied not by cultivated researchers—like those who coined the moniker aurora borealis—but by devoted amateurs. They were among the first to photograph the ethereal streak of purple light, and they were the first to give it a name.

That name is Steve.

The Roadhouse

My better half very kindly surprised my on my birthday last week with a brand spanking new Nexus 6P. The camera is great, an in certain circumstances just plain excellent. I love this candid shot I snapped of my daughter waiting for her ‘milk-milk shake-shake’ at The Roadhouse in Fitzroy.

Precious memories


“Wait a second! I’m not big boned, I’m just fat!”

Facebook really nailing those poignant memories.
