Indonesia is full of so many contradictions in so many different ways but this place takes the cake.

Hypnotic Muslin Doof
This Docco was different and long but kinda cool, guy did 2 months jumping trains by himself.
Before i moved to the coast i lived near a railway line and use to get up to lots of no good there, my best mate a few years older always tried to convince me to jump a train but i was too much of a pussy, I've always kind of regretted it. (i was only about 10 to 12 at the time)
Anyway maybe a good thing sadly this guy died a few years ago in an accident involving a train, assume while jumping trains.
Anyway just checking out some of his other videos and he even went to Indo and could even speak a little Bahasa Indonesia.(see below this video)
Do you think you could handle the 72 hours better ?
Crayfish Scotty on a tear.
How do you think you’d go udo?
Not sure if I’d be able to handle that
Be fine - you know its for 72 hrs
I was surprised how soon it started playing with his head i think 72 hrs total darkness would be a tough one .
Literally does my head in being stuck in the one town with decent waves and fishing for a year. Really don’t know if I could handle 72 hours in a box with nothing but my own over active mind.
Yes, Stu .....literally.

Hugh Cornwell interview
There's a really good doco on Netflix called my octopus teacher i'd give it 9/10
Wow! Based on the strength of that trailor, looks like good watch.
Can confirm it’s very good Zen. Give it a watch
It is truly amazing, makes you understand that we Homo Sapiens are not the only ones with the capacity to be "human".
My Octopus Teacher. Fantastic stuff. Whenever fear is replaced by curiosity, we all win.
I'll second or third that. The Occ Doc is epic.
Lee Ralph - Skater
Lee lived in S.A for a while at his peak was rad watching him skate great bloke super humble...good one Udo
That was cool funny as a grommet i was always thought he was like a big foot or yeti, and he looks even more like one now.
Weird feeling watching these vids on old skaters, so much mixed emotions, great to see them again and feel a stoke for them in one sense but also a kind of sadness for guys like this so much talent kind of wasted.
Groundswell, many thanks for turning me on to "My Octopus Teacher". That was the coolest docco I have watched in ages. Just brilliant. Cheers.
Glad you liked it zen. one of the only docos ive teared up watching.
Jeez, the Exposed docco 'The Ghost Train Fire' on ABC was pretty amazing. Incredible research, production, etc, one of the best things the ABC has put out in years.
Really impressed with Caro Meldrum-Hanna's work, including her previous work 'The Case of Keli Lane'.
Great picture of Lee Ralph in Adelaide. Did you ever skate that spot Memo? Great scene as Fraser says.
This was an interesting short docco type vid, on" planned obsolescence"
Planned obsolescence being companies purposely making products that don't last so we need to keep buying the same things.
Even a light globe in the video that's been running continuously for 120 years!
Great Video Indo, I'm proud to be a non trend follower and over consumer. An example is I love my vintage 4 channel stereo that some friends look bored by while talking about their new little sound bar tech. That is until I crank SADE up on it to about half of the 100Watts per channel....they just forgot what real Hi Fi sounds like ha ha I also have a box of old globes Ive been saving for when I go totally off grid as they still function when the voltage drops. Stuck with the i phone though, but I make em last till the end.
Yeah some of that old quality analogue stereo gear can have amazing sound quality.
Intriguing. This would be a blast.
I'm too old for that shit, the drug-addled poseurs would drive me mad.
There's enough of those in the Byron shire.
That’s a shame but probably accurate.
Do you love new age Instagram influencers with their perfect lives that just embody the wonderlust lifestyle?
Fuck me neither
Karl Pilkington in his idiot abroad series with Ricky Gervais tells it like it really is, and it’s some funny shit
Reckon if you went to Burning Man full of excitement and positivity and had a copious supply of uppers, downers and everything else in between it'd be fun.
But if you started to question things, you'd be fucked and you couldn't get out of there quick enough.
Then again I could be wrong.
Anyway, I've been watching a few old Malcolm Douglas, Bush Tucker Man and even Leyland Brothers vids (like 70's vintage) and that looks more my speed these days, fourbie and a boat and off to the most remote places I could find, from Cape York to Arnhem Land to the Kimberley down the West Coast and beyond.
I'm with you Andy.
being stuck in the desert with 70000 people is my idea of a living hell.
even in my drug addled youth I doubt I could hack it.
Being stuck in the desert with 70,000 people sounds like going to NWWA during Covid.
exactly, except I can get barrelled and wash off the grime in the NW.
I tried some of that shite around here with the bush doof/techno parties.
not for me.
Yeah had a squiz at the bush doofs too, vaguely fun but just too many people out of it with something to prove/ social points to score.
Been to maybe two where there were young hoods on ice, bit of a dodgy scene and me being on drugs takes away situational awareness too much for my liking.
Camping on an island in FNQ sounds much better.
I used to be addicted to Mal Florence fishing videos, especially the Ribbon reefs of NQ.
Bucket list fishing for sure.
Love his bush camp from around the 9.20 mark
Even the soap holder is a simple classic.
I’ve been seeking solace, fishing and waves with a fwd and a small tinny around our country for 25 years and the opportunity to do so is something I’ll be forever grateful. The best times I’ve ever had. The all-consuming black hole Mentawai Gold rush of the new millennium was a true blessing for those who searched domestically. I reckon Covid has tightened the screws on the mainland.....if you know what I’m getting at go there now before it’s too late!
