There are a lot of big personalities at my circus school. That’s not meant in a bad way at all, just to say that perhaps it takes a certain boisterous nature to dangle from the roof and defy death. Who knows? There are also some quite shy people who do it as their moment in the spotlight.

There are times at class when people might be feeling flat and we feed off the more upbeat energy of some of the others. Last night we were all in a hilarious mood. It’s very common for some pretty filthy jokes to fly around at times and watching someone crack up laughing while they are dangling upside down trying to learn a trick is a lot of fun.

It was one of those nights where we were all in the same happy, crazy, dirty, fun


So far I’m keeping pace with releasing a download every week. To achieve that this week I went back to my archives to one of my favourite photo shoots. I had taken a more brave step than usual and approached a model that I didn’t think would do a shoot with me. Turns out I was wrong.

Within two months Timothy was coming through Sydney on a road trip and we did two shoots. Draped is the resulting download from shoot number two. Timothy is an absolute joy to collaborate with. A classically trained dancer he knows his body, how to move it and how it looks it’s best.

Sadly I will be out of town with my family when Timothy is here for Easter


This weekend was a busy but very fun weekend. It was one of those weekends that is good for your soul.

On Friday night I had a spontaneous night of a few wines and some pizza with some very good friends and a couple of their friends that I’d never met before. It wasn’t a late night but it was great.

Yesterday morning started very early for a photo shoot of a very hot man with a ridiculous body who was also great fun to work with. Stay tuned for the first half of those photos to be released next weekend. Then I was the marriage celebrant at the wedding of some friends and had another great night celebrating. Today we all caught up for a post wedding pub lunch.

In between all of that I’ve binge watched the new season of Queer Eye and cried happy tears a lot. So it’s been one hell of a weekend.

Last week I found this video on Youtube about sharing happiness and it made me smile while I was watching it


Neverland Redux: Wade "Little One" Robson, Dan Reed, James "Rubba Rubba"" Safechuck

    Liking or disliking Michael Jackson and his music has little to do with the public spectacle that is Leaving Neverland.  In the overcrowded genre of media about Jackson's pedophilia, director Dan Reed goes for the home run with a slap in the face for those in danger of becoming inured to the subject. Jockeying for center stage is the attack movement firing at Leaving Neverland and its participants. Their platform wins hands down when it comes to obfuscations since none of their "policy points ...

I never read the newspapers after a mass shooting they are just too much, a feeding frenzy, besides I find that I absorb enough of the facts without ever trying to seek them out.

We bang on about it interminably.

In fact, I barely like to acknowledge that it has happened. You know, if it weren't for the media outlets desperate for the latest big news item, if it weren't for the saturation coverage, I could almost miss that it had happened at all, and I'd be much happier for it.

If it weren't for the news, I'd not know it even happened, and I really think that is a preferable way to live.

adelaide fringe - twelfth night - the handlebardsWhat a delightful end to our 2019 Fringe adventure.

The Handlebards combine bicycles with Shakespeare, and peddle their way between venues (hopefully they got a plane all the way from England, then peddled once they got here). And they take on Shakespeare like a bike with no brakes going downhill.

It's fast, it's dangerous, but it's a hell of a ride.

In a lot of ways, they reminded me of Sound and Fury ...
captain marvel - higher, further, fasterCaptain Marvel is the best MCU movie to date.

It's smart, it's funny, it has an amazing star, it's deliciously 90's retro, it has the best MCU soundtrack, it has the best message.

And it may actually have a worthwhile villain for once. Or at the very least a villain who represents everything wrong with his culture.

Brie Larson was without doubt the perfect choice for this role... she does badass exceptionally well, she does snark exceptionally well and she commands the ...

We watched Fantastic Beasts, The Crimes of Grindlewald, the new JK Rowlings. Not a clue what it was about.
