Yikes. Has it really been that long since my last blog update? That's a little crazy... In an effort to make up for that, here is a photo of me with a squid on my head.
What I'm reading:
The Omnivore's Dilemma, by Michael Pollan. Very thought provoking. I saw him speak at the Opera House some months back, talking about food, food production, factory farming (and how it's bad for us, the animals, the environment), sustainable farming methods, etc. I really want to have my own little farm now. One day!
Also doing quite a lot of re-reading of Dan Abnett's Know No Fear...
What I'm listening to:
Xavier Rudd's Spirit Bird. Dead Can Dance's Anasastis. Fiona Apple's The Idler Wheel...
As well as plenty of Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Red Fang, etc. Was listening to lots of Sun Kil Moon until I saw him in concert - wonderful musician, but geez he acted like an arse, and I can't bring myself to listen to his music for now.
Oh, and Nine Inch Nails and the soundtrack to Inception are still my go-to writing music choices.
What I'm watching:
Not very much, which is rather nice actually. My TV viewing is pretty much restricted to watching the rugby - which of late has meant watching the Wallabies lose to the All Blacks. Sigh. Hopefully we can beat the Springboks on Sat night.
I've also been watching the latest season of True Blood - I'm about half way in to the season. Good fun.
What I'm writing:
Something that may or may not involve Word Bearers...
Oh, and it's Oz Games Day on Sunday in Sydney! I'll be there along with fellow authors Gav Thorpe, Matt Farrer and Henry Zou. Be sure to pop along to the Black Library stand to say g'day. Hope to see some of you there!
