On The Boardwalk

First rule of politics kiddo. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story - Enoch "Nucky" Thompson

I've been meaning to do a post on Boardwalk Empire ever since I started watching it. If you haven't seen the series yet, be sure to watch. It's absolutely brilliant - if only for the 1920s fashion, or to see Michael Shannon playing the twisted and zealous Agent Van Alden. Much like Mad Men, no details are missed in the production of the sets and the costumes. Set during the 1920's at the peak of the Prohibition era, the attention to detail and aesthetics is spot on and captures the spirit of the era; the changing role of women, the economic boom, and the Jazz Age. And everyone wears amazing hats!


Lego my eggo

Hi all. It's been a while since my last post. I had some ongoing health issues, but I'm happy to be blogging again. I've got a few things coming up so check in now and again!

Last Sunday, my friends and I geeked out at the Perth Adult Lego Society display in Claremont. All the streets, scenes and buildings were constructed from Lego, with working ferris wheels and trains. Each time we went around we spotted little details we missed, like Batman and the Batmobile cruising through the city, and Star Wars characters popping up in random places. I think my favourite things were the Transperth buses; they were so real in their likeness!

All I could think of when I saw this "Follow Your Bliss" sign, was Jack from 'Will & Grace' doing his Cher impression! Follow Your Bliss!
