Tacos, Masked Men, Weight loss and the Table of Death (Mad Mex)

Nothing like eating a meal under the threat of death. Well if it was going to be my last meal, at least it was a good one.

From the Curator of Richard Avedon People exhibition at AGWA

When a new exhibition comes to the AGWA I enjoy hearing from the curator, as they provide fascinating insights into what it takes to get an exhibition to Perth and deeper insights into the artists’ life. This was certainly the case with Christopher Chapman who curated the Richard Avedon People exhibition.

Why couldn't the woman cross the road? (City to Surf)

On Sunday I tried to cross St Georges Terrace to get to a function at the Parmelia. Knowing that the City to Surf fun run was on and all the roads would be closed I managed to get someone to drop me off at the nearest corner ... two blocks away. As luck would have it ...

What mistakes can you live with? (Felony movie review)

Don’t know if you’ve noticed but August has been awash with new movies. Whenever I can I like to support Australian movies and in the case of Felony it’s pretty easy. It’s a great thriller that will leave you pondering about what you’d do in the same situation, what mistakes could you live with?

What do Masterchef Australia, the Swan Valley and the RSPCA have in common?

What would bring George Calombaris (Masterchef Australia), Kiren Mainwaring (Co-op Dining), Singapore wine writer Ch’ng Poh Tiong, Anna Gare and the RSPCA together with an array of first class produce in the Swan Valley? I could understand some of the match ups but the RSPCA that left me pondering.
