Ribbed sensation

7kg of ribs + 6 bottles of wine + 12 peeps + fire = the goodness

Around the traps

If you are Canberra today go see Matt "Stikman" Huynh at Impact Comics

Or if you wish to get freqee

a huge assortment of comic creators are molesting/manipulating/decorating bunny figures, including Ben Constantine, Brett Weekes, Brett Williams, Corey Warren, Dan Gibbs, Giles Kilham, Glenn Manders, Jase Harper, John Stewart, L.F. Weber, Matt Huynh, Mel Stringer, Mike Mungus, Scott Beattie, Steve Martinez, Tonia Walden, and Will Kelly.

If you are south side in Melbourne there is the Melbourne Writers Festival.
Shaun Tan and Nicki Greenberg at Wesley College at 1:45 on the 27th of August
Shaun Tan at Merlyn Theatre at 12:30 on the 28th of August
Eddie Campbell and Nicki Greenberg at the Beckett Theatre at 12:45 on the 29th of August
Eddie Campbell and Shaun Tan
at Merlyn Theatre at 11:45 on 3oth of August .

Then back in Brisbane at the Brisbane Writers Festival you can see Byran Talbot, Eddie Campbell, Nicki Greenberg, Leigh Rigozzi and Shaun Tan talk about stuff (i'm guessing writing and graphic novels)

And in Adelaide, rib nite.

The wine blog

Sipped, Slurped and Swigged South Australian Wines is the wine blog. Whilst i haven't updated it in awhile, i have scribbles of notes around the place concerning the dozen or so wines I've drunk in the past 2 months.

The description does say it all, its more for me than others, so ergo it has been described by others (actually other) as "written while drunk. its terrible". I haven't found a groove yet, in terms of what i actually review a wine.

On a very related, i had great fun writing wine/comic reviews for Pirotess' Food zine (which i can't find a direct link for). Instead of matching food and wine, i pondered what South Australian wine I'd drink with specific Australian comics. If memory serves me correctly I covered Happy Birthday Anyway, Guh! and Witch King . If i can find the file I might post it up (if its cool with Miss P Tess.

Consignment is a con

One of the mentioned columns i wrote was "Consignment is a Con", whilst people may mistakenly believe I'm not down with POD (yeah, you know me), consignment is the most ugliest stain on the scene. I refuse to do it.

I think Wolf has another 2 or 3 columns that I've done, which means I don't have to think of another column for awhile.

lets try again

I haven't posted here or the wine blog for about 2 months because I've been busy, I promised myself i wouldn't post until the cellar was done but i'm two weeks behind so screw that. I also got stage fright - I was asked to do regular columns for two sites - i wrote about half a dozen pieces, one which has been posted/published.
Then i pretty much discovered i had nothing to say.

So i'm having another go at it. Which experience shows I'll either post 3 more times and disappear forever or., you know, just keep posting.
