Welcome …


ChampagneWhat the world needs now is another blog… ahh, here’s one. If you’re a designer, you might enjoy it. If you like movies, music, art, books, writing, travel… well you might find it occasionally interesting too. There’s nothing too personal here, and hopefully nothing too boring either. If you like, leave comments about posts using the ‘Comments’ links.

Tékumel: The World of the Petal Throne
The huge official site for Tékumel, an imaginary world that is the life’s work of an American linguistics Professor, M.A.R. Barker – and easily the match for Tolkein’s Middle-Earth in detail.


The Telltales
Site for independent Sydney band The Telltales features pics, music and movies. A successful debut CD is out there and the second is close to completion.

This site was built on a template provided by one of my favourite online designers, Todd Dominey.
