Been enjoying the documentary series on SBS called Abandoned where a skateboarder by the name of Rick McCrank visits areas in America that been left behind and turned into wastelands by the countries rampant consumerism.
Episode 4 is about the 20 schools in St Louis that are now empty and the remaining school is a military college, giving the lower class poorly educated the opportunity to guard the oil fields in the middle east.
At the end he visits this incredible abandoned church with huge arches and massive stained glass windows, in which the local skateboarders have turned into a skatepark, very surreal.

Whatever Goofy.

I'm not a fan of crowds for a start . And I like my intimacy to be a little more consensual regardless if it's besides a waterway.

Oh wait..... that's river cottage , not river frottage.

My mistake.

Hello hello?

Did someone say they needed the bar lowered?

Reminds Gary of a little incident he had at schoolies in the Gold Coast once, can't remember which year but it must have been the 12th or 13th schoolies Gary went to. Gary had overdone the caffeine powder while trying to do a bit of final rig sculpting and a friendly fella who'd been admiring the Ol' G from afar sidled up to offer a bit of heart medication and a bottle of smelling salts to calm me down. Even put his arm around my shoulder, kindly, to make sure Gary was feeling ok.

Well Gary doesn't know what was in those little blue, diamond-shaped pills, but Gary had to turn down the gentleman's offer of a relaxing sauna because it soon became obvious the bar wasn't gonna get lowered anytime soon.

Queensland, it's a funny place hey?

Get those fuckers in ASAP. Wait till you’re dodging sharks to see how much time you’ve got for a slooooooow retrieve.

Digging their holistic approach to fishing/ life though. More power to them.

People talk about learning from blackfellas and maybe the ultimate thing we can gleam from their example is to treat the Earth’s resources as finite and to realise the depth you can exploit an area of any harvest before it becomes unsustainable.

Everyone please check the appropriate regulations for each area you intend to hunt / fish / harvest.

More importantly, ask the locals just what is cool / uncool to catch or take. Respect the place you stand on .

Would have been great if they showed a bit of surfing with it,maybe episode 2......cant understand why they use Alvey's.......simple but....and nice feel good catch and release but if those Groper had swallowed the hooks they wouldn't survive,be better off eating them.

Weren't they blue Groper?, pretty sure they are a protected species all over Australia.

Thought the same about the abalone looked pretty small, probably should have shown us with the measuring tool they weren't undersized..

Yeah maybe Alveys are not that suited to areas around reef and rocks, but still great reels for beach fishing and traveling so care free, saltwater and sand no issue, i guess like surfing if you are a serious fisherman you have a quiver of reels and rods too suit different situations.

The abalone were tiny as were the groper not to mention climbing all over virgin cliff instead of sticking to tracks and chopping down trees , all very "back to nature", the desert is a fragile environment and should be respected, it may look like fuck all but every little bit of vegetation is precious, even stuff that looks dead is still holding back erosion and may just be dormant rather than dead. More of a what not to do in SA video clip

Watched 'Bandersnatch' the other night with zero knowledge of what it involved and was violently thrust out of my festive season reverie. Charlie Brooker's between-season 'film' has all the dread and paranoia of his Black Mirror episodes, yet also includes non-lineal storylines traversed by watching with a keypad (or remote). Essentially a loose riff on free will, the viewer becomes an agent in the film by making decisions that alter the outcome of the story.

Yeah it's gimmicky, but so was Ulysses which voiced interior monologues and stream-of conciousness text, but Brooker plays with the new filmic concept in inspired ways, and which cant be divulged without spolier alerts.

As a new style of storytelling it has promise. Recent 360° VR videos, of the kind you occasionally see made by Red Bull, leave me underwhelmed. For narrative-free videos I'd rather watch passively, no driving curiousity to use the mouse and take in a 360° view on a flat screen, but engagement via storytelling has merit, as long as it's done as well as Charlie Brooker has with Bandersnatch.

Maybe Stu, I am in complete Luddite phase at the moment so not sure I could cope with the technology. But if you want to see some great cinematography try My Brilliant Friend, no special effects, no spectacular scenes, just old master style composition and lighting. A story of two teenage girls in Naples in the 1950s may be a bit low key for some tastes but I can't take my eyes off it.
