My store is finally open and the first giveaway comp is underway...

Yep, I've been busy somewhere other than G+ for a while and it's finally come to fruition. In the next week or so the rest of my first stock order should arrive and there'll be even more cool swag online for your purchasing pleasure. I've also got a big crate of #fpvquadcopter  and other R/C vehicles on its way to my door direct from the manufacturer's factory in China #squeeee  

What's that about a giveaway competition? Oh yeah...

The Inaugural DIRIGIBLE.NINJA Giveaway Competition is now open!

Our first prize for the masses is a XIAOMI MiBand - a unisex, wearable smartphone accessory with Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility. It will help you monitor your daily fitness levels by tracking your physical activity and walking distances. It will even help calculate your burned calories and monitor your deep- and light-sleep patterns through the Android 4.4+ and iOS 7.0+ companion apps. It is IP67 water-resistant and has a built-in battery that lasts 30-days. That's 30-days, people! A full 28-days longer than I lasted on my last diet and exercise resolution! I'm even going to include a spare silicone band in a random colour as well :)

You can get up to 3 entries to win simply by visiting our website competition & giveaway page (link below) or go to the Giveaway tab at the top of this Facebook page. There's a quiz, a Facebook 'challenge' and a Twitter grift.

View the T&C's via the app.

New startup!

For those of you who don't already know, I've been busy the last few weeks developing an online business platform (e-commerce you nerds "in the know") I have decided to call [for various reasons] DIRIGIBLE.NINJA.

Well, my hard work and stress is all about to pay off - my maiden shipment of stock is on its way across the country from my first wholesale supplier! It should be delivered to my door by Tuesday or Wednesday next week and the swag will start appearing on my digital-shelves shortly thereafter...right on track for my planned 1 July 2015 go-live date, coincidentally =]

I have also just made contact with a manufacturer of remote control toys - specifically first-person view [FPV] drones and I am about to order a broad selection of samples so I can give them the once-over before I start selling them, dropshipped direct from the factory door.

Exciting times, my friends. I invite you to be as much a part of it as you desire, too...which, of course, means 'get over there and buy some of my awesome stuff' ;o)

The Fortuitous Rover 

While I was shooting the FLUIDATA show for James & Suzon at QUT last Saturday night, I tripped across this beautiful Rover 3500 (P6), belonging to one of their friends. Big thumbs up from me :)

I've always loved these, a V8 in a small car, perfect. Sure they don't have Japanese reliability but as a second car it would be perfect. I would think that any still around have been well looked after and most bugs ironed out.

RE: Brisbane Performance Art Scene

Tonight I had the immense pleasure of documenting the opening night performance of FLUIDATA, a massive project of James Cunningham and Suzon Fuks.

It's continuing through this week until the Saturday 20 June finale at QUT Creative Industries Precinct (Kelvin Grove).

NEW Sony models via +Sar Andrea update

TBH the only one in this new batch that really interests me is the RX100-MkIV -- 1/32000-sec stills shutter and 1000fps video? Even if they're heavily restricted (like Speed Priority on the A99) it's still more versatility than I've got now :)

HELL YEAH!

I've been going to the Jetty Cafe on and off for over 15-years and I can not believe how much it has changed in that time. The new menu is delicious and excellent, the staff are congenial and efficient. I often meet Northside clients here for meetings...and the great coffee.

It's a police station. They do policey-type things there. There is no food or entertainment but the premises are clean to the point of sterile, and the staff courteous without fawning. Don't try and leave a tip, it's not been necessary since the Fitzgerald Enquiry.

J. Rae Chipera takes amazing photographs. Her inspiration can be moody, often dark, always original. Her perspective always seems to astound and inspire me. A little while ago I had the opportunity to purchase one of my faves (think "Zombie Apocalypse meets Walter White") and I could not be more happy. Thanks, Jess!
