Nothing Muppet here

September 21, 2011

Instead Lost Library Thing, where I display a book that I bought purely for the interesting cover, goes back to playing doctors and nurses. Believe me, I would have loved to have made it a Muppets trifecta with three posts in a row featuring The Muppets, but oh well. Here, let the passion and intensity of a medical based love story take you away.

More Muppets

September 20, 2011

Since I featured The Muppets for last Friday’s song, I thought to have them also for this week’s Record Display.

Muppets

September 16, 2011

I’ve been looking forward to the new upcoming Muppet movie. I had it in my mind that it would be out in time for Christmas this year, but it turns out that it will be released in Australia in January of 2012. Sure, it’s just an extra month away but I have already been waiting so long and thinking it would be this year that I can’t help but feel a bit disappointed. Read the rest of this entry »


an eerie song for a Friday

October 29, 2010

Rounding out the theme of Halloween that I have blogged about all this week, here is a song from Vincent Price.

Vincent will always be synonymous with old style horror movies for me. I taped The Bat a few weeks ago, in which he features, so maybe I will watch that this Halloween weekend, along with my old VHS copy of The Abominable Dr Phibes. I think I also have a cheap DVD copy of Shock, so I might have something of a Vincent Price movie marathon.


Reflections of 23 Things

December 1, 2009

Looking back on the course, I want to begin by saying how rewarding it has been. I really got a lot out of it and enjoyed it immensely.

Trying to pick a favourite thing is difficult. I really love delicious; being able to save all the great webpages I come across has been fantastic. I need to work more on my tagging though, as I have a fair few just tagged music.

The whole blogging experience has been great. I started up my vinyl display at my house last year but it suddenly hit me that it would be a great blog topic and I have really enjoyed posting the weekly triptych. I have also started up an ongoing topic of My Lost Library Thing. I do intend to resurrect the Game Review too.

Twitter has become very addictive; I tweet daily for my Another Day Another Disc feature on my blog using the identity of ADiscADay. I also just tweet socially at work under my regular blog identity of Arotulon. I feel that there is a little community of tweeters here at UWA now.

I have reassessed Library Thing, now that I have played around with it more. I have long kept a tally of the books that I read and have now begun to use Library Thing for that purpose.

There was not a thing that I didn’t like, but not having that many digital photos to upload I didn’t really get much into Flickr. I suspect that will change once I have more digital photos.

I don’t think I seriously posted about the lifelong learning habits and what my learning goals were previously, so here goes. Of the 7 and a half habits the easiest one for me is probably play; always happy to play around with something. Hardest habit is probably accepting responsibility for my own learning; too busy playing most of the time.

In terms of learning goals then, I wanted to increase my awareness of the various technologies or things and be confident in using them. I am someone who has never owned a mobile and currently does not have a computer, so I am a potential poster child for the digital divide. I wanted to be able to engage and understand with the things in this course and I think I have done that pretty well. My partner at home is keen to see and understand all of the things that I covered in this course so I guess that I will soon put habit 7, “Show Others”, into practice and that will really prove whether or not I have confidence in these things.

To end, at our final workshop our Practically Perfect Programmer came through once again and found this clip with which we ended the class. Let me share it with you…

I hope there was a Vincent Price movie in there. Read the rest of this entry »
