Making The Royal Tenenbaums ▶︎
Excerpt from the new book “The Wes Anderson Collection” by Matt Zoller Seitz.
Trying Bullet Journal ▶︎
“Bullet journal is for those who feel there are few platforms as powerful as the blank paper page. It’s an analog system for the digital age that will help you organize the present, record the past, and plan for the future.”
Yep. I’m testing this one out. (Read more)

1972 BMW 2002tii
A project. Very original – just needs some TLC.
Some books I’ve recently read, in no particular order:
- Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff by Dinah Sanders (iBook)
- ReWork by Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson (iBook)
- Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography by Walter Isaacson (iBook)
- The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferris (iBook)
There’s a common ‘productivity’ and ‘less is more’ theme through all of these. Seems to be working out for me, feeling much better on low information diet, making sure I get as much fresh air as possible and culling a tonne of stuff at home.
Really getting a kick out of reading on my Kindle and more recently on that bigger iPhone screen, looking forward to seeing what Apple ends up releasing tomorrow morning.
Amazon Glacier Storage ▶︎
Very timely announcement, this is something I’ve been thinking about over the past few days. Looks very promising.
Subaru WRX vs IOM TT ▶︎
An hour and a quarter of Mark Higgins flogging an ever-so-slightly-enhanced Subaru around the Isle of Man TT course. What’s not to like?
Volkswagen Driving Experience
Took part in the “Volkswagen Driving Evolution” course yesterday at Phillip Island. Good fun, especially because it was so wet.
Recommend doing it.
The ultimate air-cooled 911?
(Taken way back in ‘06, London GB)
Loving the colder weather. After 18 months in Malaysia and the 3 months of summer before that, it sure is nice to throw the uggs on and sit in front of a fire.
Where dreams come true, Singer Vehicle Design ▶︎
I have a bit of thing about re-manufactured cars - Icon FJs, JIA Jensen Interceptors - but these guys take it to another level.
Number 1 on my wish list.
Sprints at Phillip Island
Porsche Club of Victoria Sprints at Phillip Island. Cold and wet, wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
