Tumbling around the web in a big mess. Picking up and dropping off bits and pieces with no clear goal, just spending a bit of time looking at stuff I like.
What do I like? Visual stuff mostly, photos and videos, a bit of music and interesting thoughts. When I say interesting, I mean interesting to me. You might be extremely bored by the whole thing, but I don't really care, because this isn't for you. It's for me.
Tripykon released the EP Shatter in 2010. And I’ve been listening to it ever since.
As the years go by, I pay less and less attention to the commercial music charts and just listen to what I feel like from my collection on online. I hardly even know when anything is released anymore.
A woman as PM? Enough to make a volcano explode
In mid 2010, Julia Gillard challenged Kevin Rudd for the leadership of the ALP and won. This made her first female prime minister of Australia. Regardless of what you think of the politics, I think it’s shameful it took to 2010 before we had a female leader. The vitriol she has to put up with makes it even more shameful. Her speech in parliament labeling Tony Abbott a misogynist only says a tiny part of what women in the public eye have to battle.
Around the same time as Julia was becoming PM in Australia, the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajoekull was erupting and disrupting air travel all over the northern hemisphere.
Not a lot terribly exciting happened to me in 2010. We moved to a new rental, which would turn out to not be a great move, but the house we had before was being sold, so we didn’t have much say. I continued to work in the same job, live with the same man and do the same old, same old.
