Who would've thunk it was going to be such a close contest after the annihilation at New Zealand's hand!?

Pop Culture
French house producer Hugo Leclercq - better known by his stage name +Madeon​ - has come an awfully long way in a very short time. He became an overnight international sensation in 2011 on Youtube by showing off his prowess at mixing song samples on the fly using a Novation Launchpad. Before long, his songs were being picked up by mainstream media, getting used on the US version of So You Think You Can Dance and becoming part of the soundtrack in a handful of AAA video game franchises like FIFA, Forza and Need For Speed. He has toured internationally with the likes of Swedish House Mafia and Lady Gaga and will shortly release his debut studio album 'Adventure' through Columbia, the same label as Daft Punk. He has been teasing singles from the album for months now, and this latest offering, featuring vocals from American indy band Passion Pit, shows a mature sound while still paying tribute to his distinctive electronic roots. A top effort from a bloke with a long career ahead of him.

+Saouls No. He had several songs with Porter Robinson, and I think his first song under Madeon was Gold. Meuporg could be his last song with Daemon.

Never heard of Athens until now but this article on MSDN breaks it down http://blogs.msdn.com/b/belux/archive/2014/10/29/day-2-at-teched-windows-for-iot-azure-stream-analytics-and-the-future-of-net.aspx

To answer your question, I'd agree its most likely Athens

Not groundbreaking cinema by any means, but probably worth it for a chuckle or two.

House On The Hill
In 1978, Malcolm Fraser's Liberal Party government announced a competition to design the nation's new parliament house in Canberra. This was to replace the original "provisional" building that had served the country for 60 years since the capital's inception.

Out of 329 submission from 28 countries, New York-based architect Romaldo Giurgola eventually won the right to design the new structure and gave his vision for the building as one that "should nest with the hill, symbolically rising out of the Australian landscape, as true democracy rises from the state of things."

The building spans 7.5 hectares on Capital Hill overlooking Lake Burley Griffin and its construction required the labour of over 10,000 workers. It was inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II on the 9th of May during Australia's bicentennial celebrations in 1988. The spire at the top of the building is 81 metres tall, weighs 220 tonnes and from it flies an Australian flag that is nearly 13 metres wide and 6.5 metres tall.

This is an image I took when I last visited Canberra in 2007. I have processed it using a combination of Topaz Clarity, Denoise, and Adobe Camera Raw.

Missing From The List
For a song that is reasonably recent, dripping in indie cred and one which has been receiving some pretty regular rotation, I'm surprised that this very catchy song from ODESZA didn't rate a mention in yesterday's Triple J Hottest 100 Countdown. Shame, really...

The Choices We Make
A self-confessed "anti-braker" divulges their perfectly rational and well-researched reasoning behind making the personal decision to remove the brakes from their car.

Risotto Is Just Hot, Wet Rice
Not since a little-known BBC show called Posh Nosh came out about 10 years ago have I come across a show quite like this. Aussie comedians Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney have joined forces and put together their very punny take on cooking programs The Katering Show.

The web series is six 7-minute episodes in which the two hosts put their dead-pan spin on the increasingly ridiculous modern world of food: from absurd intolerances, to fad diets, to expensive kitchen appliances and the increasingly ridiculous obsession with photographing every meal.

For an idea of the show's comedic sensibilties, I give you this excerpt from their web page; a delightful bio of one of the show's hosts who has been dragged into this experience by her food-obsessed friend:

"Kate McCartney has been interested in food since never. If you try to engage her in conversations about food and/or cooking, she will push you into the sea. In fact, her most successful recent culinary experience was when she saw a thing on the floor, picked it up and tried to eat it. It was a button."

I implore you to not only watch the episodes, but scour the website. It is absolutely laden with comedic gems. I have not laughed to myself so much in a very long time. More please!

First They Came For Colbert...
It's been a tumultuous couple of months in the late night TV landscape. Last night, Jon Stewart announced that he will - at some point in 2015 - step down as the host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show after a marathon run of 16 years at the desk. This news comes little more than two months following the retirement of Stephen Colbert's satirical Report and the more recent ascension of TDS correspondent Larry Wilmore as the host of its replacement, The Nightly Show. Thankfully, Jon Oliver's HBO program Last Week Tonight has also returned for a second season, so now we can only hope that these two comparative rookies can step up and fill the incredibly large shoes of two giants of late night TV. It will be tremendously sad to say goodbye to the man who has long been the bastion of sanity and the voice of reason for so long.

+Trace McLean and it's probably for the best that John Oliver has been able to get his own start rather than inheriting a show (despite some obvious similarities between LWT and TDS).

You'd think Comedy Central would have to have rocks in their head if they haven't had some sort of contingency in place for this exact scenario for years now. No matter who they replace him with, I doubt the show will have the same energy, but I hope to be proven wrong!

Taking Over
The moist, nutrient rich environs around a creek provide the perfect habitat for epiphytic organisms such as lichens and moss. These types of plants attach themselves to and grow non-parasitically upon a host for structure. A rock or a dead tree stump provides ideal conditions for such growth.

This is an HDR image from only two bracketed exposures instead of my usual three as there was significant movement in the background between shots. I have used the 0EV and +1EV exposures in Photoshop's HDR Merge tool and processed the resulting 32 bit image using Adobe Camera Raw to balance the shadows, clarity and saturation. The shot was taken at Kurth Kiln Regional Park a short drive north of Gembrook.

The Old And The New
In much the same way that concentric rings of a tree show how it has grown, the radial nature of Melbourne's suburban sprawl shows how economic booms and busts have shaped the city.

In the city's early years, the romantic idea of domestic bliss afforded by one's own semi-rural oasis saw the rise of detached living soar to levels not seen anywhere outside of London. Estates began to spring up in areas such as St Kilda, Brighton, Hawthorn and Heidelberg; all within easy reach of the centre of town. These provided a much needed antidote to the rigours of life in the big smoke for the city's first inhabitants, and gave even the poorest immigrant the promise of a quality of life unattainable elsewhere.

The mercantile elite tended to favour desirable seaside suburbs and brought with them distinctive Gothic and Italianate architectural styling. Conversely, the working man sought escape from cumbersome building regulation and moved to Collingwood, Richmond and South Melbourne, creating more dense, almost shanty towns, all the while relishing the prospect of freehold ownership.

For over a century, Melbourne's insatiable urban sprawl has allowed it to maintain its title as one of the most geographically vast metropolises on the planet. The distance between its east and west fringes spans more than 100 kilometres. This tyranny of distance is not without its drawbacks however, and from as early as 1910 it has seen cyclical shifts in urban land utilisation. Inner suburbs are almost constantly being rejuvenated into medium and high-density apartments as industrial operations are pushed further and further outwards.

In recent times, the Hoddle grid, which once defined the limits of the CBD, has begun to prove inadequate for the city's expansive needs, and now skyscrapers full of apartments stretch beyond these boundaries into Docklands, Southbank and towards Fisherman's Bend.

This photo from nearly ten years ago taken on High Street at Northcote shows the juxtaposition of the type of housing that was once idealised by those seeking refuge from the inhospitable density of life in early 20th century Europe, and the inhospitable density of life we are creating for ourselves in the 21st century. It is a single hand-held image taken using my Pentax *istDL and has been worked on in Adobe Camera Raw for exposure correction, Topaz Clarity for micro contrast enhancement, and Topaz Denoise to smooth out the image.

Beyond The Desktop
The groundbreaking nature of Microsoft's augmented reality technology is not to be dismissed lightly, even more so with the mounting evidence that it will be ready to use when Windows 10 ships this year. Its unlikely to be cheap, and its first iteration will no doubt be clunky, but no first generation technology gets it right from day one. Moreover, this is a promise of what is to come; a fundamental shift in the way we interact with the digital world.

Being a stickler for proper use of language, I take exception to the insistence on the use of the word "hologram" throughout all this (which would be visible in the real world without a visor), although I do understand the need to 'humanise' and simplify what it is they are trying to communicate. Personally, I am salivating at the prospect of using this technology, probably even more so than Google Glass. Time to start saving my hard earned money.

I think Microsoft tries hard to promote their Win 10 and make people forget their fail with Win 8.
Personally cannot see any major application of the presented product - even if this works (I doubt it).
Like many gaudy ideas coming from Microsoft this seems to be just a commercial pushing more interest towards their regular products (consumer OS market , Office and other tools, servers etc.).
Just to keep their brand in our minds...
