Winning the hearts and minds

House of correction
It's a good look, isn't it? Liberation, American style at Rugrabbinmynuts, House of Bondage, Iraq. Dickbreath below has just posted what he calls an "essay" on Abu Grahib where he tries to excuse this outrageous behaviour of the Americans by describing the even more appalling torture that went on there under Saddam - kind of like "See, we're not half as bad".

And you wonder why you're losing whatever goodwill you had left in the world, America? More pictures here of how the Americans treat detainees - Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day

yeah, there is a place near work that does the canvas thing too. problem is that being a film shot, they need to scan it to be able to print it onto the canvas, so you lose definition straight away. unless I get somewhere with a good negative scanner to scan the neg, then I can just play with it a little before giving them the disk... but it is all feeling too hard right now.

That dam shot sounds great. it is easy in hindsight to wish you got something you missed, isn't it...

I can see it is going to be that kind of Friday. Fantastic.

hang in there WCS. I had some friends over yesterday, you will be pleased to know, and they all made it home safely. Told you I wasn't that bad...

it is Saturday tomorrow (that mantra has kept me going for the last 3 hours, anyway...)
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWJ
What kind, WCS?

I'm feeling it, but I'm not sure we're on the saame wavelength.

The place I know might be better, WJ. They work with a lot of film - I know one of the girls (girlfriend of Mr LaRues friend) is big on her film camera so they might be come careful to keep res. It's called the Lab, on Danks st, 'loo.

Don't tell me you are in the doldrums also WCS?
I'm in a fucking GREAT mood!!!!!!!
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterRob Byrnes
I'm on that mantra, too, WJ. It's not countering the waking thought of 'why am I up at 7am on a sunday?' that I faced this morning ...

Well I have been cursing PowerPoint and Equation Editor for the past hour. That kind of day. Fiddly bloody equations for price squeezes.

Yes, thankfully the weekend and I am out with the girls tonight.
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWCS
ok, thanks Chesty. I might check them out. If you are chatting with them, maybe you could even ask the question, if I may be so bold.

I am getting a bit worried about you two, Chesty and WCS, you should both be revelling in post Lamb-Chop-On-BBQ/Beer induced euphoria, coupled with "tomorrow is the weekend" happiness...

or am I on my own (or perhaps with Byrnesy) here...?

"out with the girls tonight" sounds dangerous, WCS (to innocent bystanders, rather than participants, of course)
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWJ
I have heard the Lab on Danks St is fantastic as well WJ. And while you are there you can eat well at either the Danks St Depot or Sopra at Fratelli Fresh.

It's all about the food :)

And yes, I am in food and beer coma I think.

1/2 hour to go and I can fuck work off, head out to Bankstown and blow sydney off ripping 105kts at 2500ft in someone elses multimillion dollar machine. Melbourne here I come!
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterRob Byrnes
Nice one Rob.

WJ, it has been known to be dangerous. We do often get up to mischief...
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWCS
I thought that mischief was implied in a 'night with the girls'.

Let me guess, this night will begin in town with alcohol based assistance, and then lead on to more trouble that you can poke a stick at (or at least as much as you can all find in Sydney on a Friday night)...?

I'm with you wj - today is a tops day.

But them am not hungover today. And no lamb - I cooked Pork fillet steaks with caramelised onion and apple sauce.

And had a movie marathon.
- Ep 3 of star wars - blah
- Cinderella Man - Enjoyable
- Charlie and Chocolate Factory - LOVED it - Way cool interpretation
- Sisterhood of the Travelling Undies or something - Was cooking dinner whilst it was on and then read a book through the second half so would be unfair to comment!

You just stay away from the aquarium WCS!!!!
The seals are very cute and impressionable
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterRob Byrnes
I will ask, WJ. Thinking of getting some stuff done myself - they're very reasonable for printing and basic mounting.

No beer/lamb induced headache at this end - v quiet aust day.

Hey what does everybody think of burning fartarse taking out the hottest 100? Bit of a surprise I thought, but at leats he beat little annoying prodigy shit.

Have I ever told you guys that I like to propagate bromeliads at home...
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterfingers
Fuck off time, hurrah.
Have a good weekend people!!
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterRob Byrnes
Listen, I only club seals on ice floes in Lake Ontario. The seals at Sydney Aquarium are safe from me.

Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants is a great flick Uncle B. Very well done.
