I follow Jazza on YouTube. In addition to his cartoon work, which I love, he also does a lot of art challenges (e.g. draw with your non-dominant hand, draw with only crayons, draw outside your style, etc.). This one was the photo-realistic challenge of drawing the new iPhone 7. I think he pretty much nailed it.

Started listening to the Adam Ruins Everything podcast a few days ago. It is basically a long form interview with the experts they have on for the show.
+Greg Bodnar, you might like this episode about municipal transit. They talk about some really interesting ideas, including how to think differently about cycling.

I foresee a butt-load of court challenges from regional councils on this. Given the fact that there are regions, such as Hawks Bay, that don't even chemically treat their water (cue the gastrointestinal bug of late), or other regions that refuse to fluoridate their water, there are a lot of proponents of the 100% Natural NZ mantra.

I like this for two reasons:
#1. I like the new Goals feature Google is offering.
#2. I like that they inferred that George was gay, and that was perfectly normal for the commercial.

Introduction
I've got a few different blogs if you want to check them out: The Vespa Diaries(A personal blog),  Quest For Fiver (a blog about living a healthy lifestye) and now The Night Terrors (My webcomic).  I also contribute to Maple Glazed Kiwi (A Book/Movie Blog). You can learn a bit about me on Facebook...or by asking me. Look, just check out the blogs, and I'm sure you will be thoroughly confused.

Thanks!

A great place to visit while out and about in Seatoun/Miramar. There might be a bit of a queue on Saturday mornings as it is a favourite haunt of many of the locals. Try the rhubarb scones or the cherry or apple pie!
