Free music!

I used to be in a band. Well, two actually: Season, and Subnormal. Good friend and former band-mate McGauz has recently been working hard on his latest musical project The Black Hundred. But in the midst of getting some tracks online, he’s gone nuts and put all of our — Season’s — releases (and some live tracks) online for...

MANZA

Last week, I attended my first MANZA meeting. MANZA stands for Malaysian Australian New Zealand Association, and is a group of about 200 people living in Malaysia, or Kuala Lumpur, that organise events and other social get togethers. From the MANZA website: MANZA prides itself on being open to all nationalities and currently has members...

Feet for farkin fish food fo’ realz.

On the weekend, right after watching Despicable Me[1. It was meh.], Kelly and I dropped into Kenko Wellness Spa for a foot treatment session, which was being conducted by thousands of little fish! A brief history from the Kenko website: For decades, people seeking alternative methods of healing have made pilgrimages to Eastern Europe...

Free font – Registrate

A long time ago, like many graphic designs, I had an affair with font creation. Using Fontographer I designed and built a font called Registrate — based on Australian car numberplates — which came in two flavours: rounded and straight. You can have them for FREE! Waaaaay back in the day, I created Mac and PC TrueType and Postscript...

Love in the work place

In a recent post, fellow blogger and friend Jamjar, while describing her favourite love stories in movies, strung together a few sentences to produce possibly one of my favourite paragraphs I’ve read in 2010: After all they’ve been through mostly mistaking passion for each other as disdain and dislike, Leia realises her...

Movember 2009

Wow. The last week or so I’ve been catching up on my digital backlog :)Thank me later :P Anyway, the newest, and arguably the regret-est, is my nine-month delayed Movember montage. If you don’t know what Movember is, you should read this quick summary. In short, I raised $385! So, I thought while I was doing this to myself, I...

Name card design

Not long after I arrived in KL there was a design conference (KLDW 2010) on. I thought this would be a great opportunity to meet some design-minded friends! I bought my tickets and awaited the first day. Late the night before, I suddenly realised I had nothing to offer anyone should I get talking. I wanted to have a card of some sort so...

Up to date

…almost. During the last 12 days or so I’ve been collating, collecting, cropping, selecting, writing, PHP-ing, CSS-ing, and frustrate…err -ing? As my work contract with Six Degrees Digital is drawing to a close, I’ve been working hard to get the best pieces of my design sorted for uploading to the work section and the play...

Afternoon shower

Yesterday, like most days, it rained in the afternoon. I reckon about 80% of the time it rains in the afternoons — between 2 and 5pm usually. This time, I decided to film some, because… well, just because. See it on Vimeo. It’s not wet season at the moment, although reports differ depending on which part of the country you’re...
