The Rainbow Round of Sport

Protests and demonstrations are always tricky things. How much of it do we do to actually do good, versus just feeling good? A lame, token gesture that looks great, but achieves nothing. Does doing any of this stuff really make a difference? Pouring a bucket of ice water over your head? Sharing that Facebook status? [...]

Taking photos & making memories.

I know there's one school of thought that says, when you're out there living life you should put your damn camera away and just take it all in. And fair enough too. We've all seen people 'watching' concerts through their smart phones instead of being in the moment. So I completely understand why people say [...]

Kayaking the Sea Caves

Way back in 2015 I planned a kayak adventure to go explore the sea caves near Rapid Bay south of Adelaide. Drove down there, weather was crap, tour got cancelled, went hiking instead. In 2016, went back down, weather was crap again, tour got cancelled instead, managed to head on over to the Coorong for [...]

How you feel Vs What you achieve.

I had a really interesting conversation with a friend yesterday about how she felt during her triathlon last weekend. She was describing how shitty she felt during it and how she was basically plotting and planning how she could pull out almost all the way through it. Three things struck me as interesting about this [...]

Complaining Vs Campaigning.

A while back we had a pretty decent blackout in my home town of Adelaide, and it lasted several days for some people. And quite a few of them got all vocal about how terrible that was. I took a few of them to task, suggesting it perhaps wasn’t the end of the world, and [...]

For beards to triumph.

It’s important to remember, that sometimes, if not all the times, making no decision is the same as actually making one. Only with, presumably, a different outcome. I could be all profound and reference the famous quote “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”, (which may or [...]

Little box of fucks.

In a time when there's all sorts of good causes vying for your attention, and our moola, it's always good to see people doing really cool stuff like Sam from Connie from Love Your Sister. They're out there raising money for Breast Cancer in their own, awesome way. As Sam says, "All this pink about [...]

The joy of not knowing. (And why we hit icebergs.)

I don’t subscribe to the ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’ ethos. Give me knowledge any day. Just don’t give me certainty. At least not too much of it. Most of the time, at least, I like the idea that I never quite know what’s just around the corner. Certainty can take away so much glorious possibility and [...]

Looking for something to read?

Looking for something to read in 2017? Why not start with Mark Manson's The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. Don't be fooled by the edgy title, this is a seriously good book and possibly one of the better ones I've ever read in this space. Big call, I know, but I absolutely love [...]

The wasted want.

Wants are funny things. Sometimes we want the same things. Sometimes not so much. If you're to believe Maslow and popular psychology we all have basic human needs: clothing, shelter, pizza... and eventually love. (Even if it's the love of pizza. And donuts.) And while I may not exactly be the master of relationships having [...]
