I am a frustrated Melbournian, currently living in Townsville, hoping to move back to Canberra soon, but whilst in far north Queensland, I hope to go see what this beautiful country has to offer, so there will mainly be place-related posts. 

This blog was fun! Hopefully the new one will be fun-ner! ^_^

The Imitation Game/ Alan Turing

(Pics courtesy of Wikipedia)

A Brilliant film about a brilliant man

Due to a book project I was involved in years ago, and a general love of history, the name Turing was familiar. When I learnt the full story of Alan Turing and his horrendous treatment from his own country after his service in the second world war, I too looked forward to the film starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Turing, and he did a brilliant job. I love this movie so very very much and could not recommend it more. Of course some aspects have been dramatised but what can we realistically expect from Holly-weird. The history of Alan Turing and the Imitation Game are things that can make me cry at the drop of a hat, the injustice of it all reminds me of Nikola Tesla (don't even get me started!)

This is a brilliant film that I could not tell you enough times to watch. Learn about Alan Turing and make your own mind up about what truly being of service to 'your country' is

In the first half of the documentary, there is wonderful footage from the world's fair and people who remembered it talk about it (and its magical moving footpaths) the footage is enchanting! the whole of  People's century is brilliant.

MYST television series

Ah! children of the nineties who never owned any games consoles but had access to PC games rejoice!

A television series based on Myst is being made, though of course, when it actually comes out it shall be far more exciting! 

I spent hours playing MYST when I was young, it was brilliantly suspenseful and required a different kind of thinking!

And who can forget the brilliant soundtrack, still to this day I play it when I study, here's a snippet

Can't wait for it to be out!

Alexa Chung style

Because which young blogger hasn't admired Alexa at some point?

Still thought her book was atrocious. All these people praising it, it was quite void of any real reflection? Fashion has so much potential to do so much more, but it likes its place in the ivory tower, looking down at the unstyled masses
