Take me back two years and I would have felt 'unfinished' had I have made my own rig for filming video. Today, well, that's a different story. I find joy in making something I know contributes to my creativity, because the process itself is creative. The project (most technical paragraph, I promise) I recently picked … Continue reading A selfie stick, of sorts.
I have about five or six favourite books so far, the kind of favourite that if I knew I was going to find myself in a post apocalyptic world, I'd want those books in my zombie pack. One such book that recently made it on that list is Show Your Work by Austin Kleon. I … Continue reading Book Review: Show Your Work by Austin Kleon
I warmed right up in September. That means I enjoyed a lot of things too. Here's the deal-- We all know I hate summer, blah blah. But for some strange reason, reasons I'm also not willing to accept, as the sun gets closer and spring approaches, I come alive. It's totally counter intuitive to my … Continue reading September Favourites – Ivan Siladji

Last week on my daily commute to work it was one of those days where I was running on time, the sun was out, music playing, you could say things were pretty smooth sailing. It was like that scene, you know the one, that scene from the Truman Show where Truman, after the heavy storm, … Continue reading My Apple Watch Exploded On My Wrist
Dear Journal, The gentle snoring of the kids in the tent, memories. The bush? Our lounge room. First it was marshmallows over the fire pit follows by a BBQ dinner. Snuck out to Micky D's for desserts. Empty cups and pies cases on the coffee table. The taste of "finally coffee" lingers. We watched Disney's … Continue reading Finally Coffee; Saturday, 21st September 2019
One mind boggling experience within the Twitter space is time differences between here in Australia and the rest of the world, most notably the UK and US. It's not uncommon for me to tweet or email my community and hear nothing back, only to wake up the next day with a handful of notifications. Some … Continue reading The Difference Between Americans and Australians
Let's make no mistake, running the country would be no small feat. To even have the audacity to write a fictional series about how I'd run the country given the chance is a little obnoxious, but I figured, heck, why not, let's entertain the idea. The background story As voting citizens in a democratic society … Continue reading Running for Prime Minister 20YY – Vol.1
