Playing Tag - Should I or Not?

There's a new trend in online communities called 'tag'. It works like this. Someone tags you, you reveal five facts about yourself, then you tag five other people. Seems harmless enough and it gets you seen online in a similar way to how link rings used to when they were all the rage.

I was first tagged in the video version of the game on Youtube, where you can watch my five fact vlog train response, Now I've been 'blog tagged' by Artist, Eric T. Francis, errr... thanks Eric... I think?

Whenever these games come around, the kind that you didn't know you were playing until you're... well... playing by being tagged there's that brief moment where you think will I keep this thing going or will I be a killjoy and stop it right here? Will anyone care? Should I put this same decision in five other bloggers hands?

To continue this game I'm going to have to spend time looking for people to tag... I guess I'll go looking for people who might appreciate something to blog about - even if it's just to whinge about the inconvenience of having to tag five more people.

But first, five facts:

  1. I was born in South Australia, moved to Western Australia when I was eight then moved back to South Australia at age 29.

  2. I've never traveled outside of Australia and whilst I wouldn't pass up an offer to travel overseas I really don't have any desire to do so. Would rather travel within my own country.

  3. I'm not Sting (the singer) though two people I've never met in person have said I look like him - so don't get me confused. (he has a much cuter nose than mine... oh, and he can sing and play guitar where as I can do neither).

  4. I was instrumental in establishing a community gallery in my home town. It's been open for two years and I've only ever exhibited four paintings there in all that time.

  5. I'm a Batman fan from way back. The first, live action batman on TV I ever watched (back in the 1970s) was the original 1949 cinematic series (which I now own on DVD) that features the best, live action interpretation of Robin (the character) thus far. He's played almost as an equal and very capable side kick to Batman (not a jealous, snot nosed side kick or a flowery verbal mirror to Batman's deductions).

Now my five tagees:

  1. R B Grange - A blog about the Art World through the eyes and experiences of R B Grange (well obviously).

  2. Belinda Lindhardt - Belinda is a great Aussie Artist whose unique art journal I should probably visit a lot more than I have.

  3. Bob Abrahams - Bob is a West Aussie Artist who introduced me to 'plein air' painting (or to be precise gave me the term for that style of art - I just thought it was painting outside but no, 'plein air').

  4. Daniel Sanger - Another Aussie artist and now moderator of Australian Art Forum. Daniel is just as handy with a brush painting as he is creating digital graphics.

  5. Lauren Perkins - Original founder of Australian Art Forum, these days Lauren's taken a back seat so she can spend more time painting girls with longing, far away looks in their eyes (amongst other things).

To finish, for my tagees, the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. 2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. 3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. 4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

  1. Thanks TET. I'll see what I can do.

  2. Thanks for explaining the tagging. I was going to ask what it meant - now I know!

    Don't know if I could be faffed! Suppose it could be interesting, but it sounds like another of those time-consuming things on the computer, that you don't really have time for if you've got a life!

Movie Review: Long Story Short (2021) *Very minor spoilers*

Written and directed by Australian actor, Josh Lawson, Long Story Short is a fun rom-com about putting things off until the 'right' time and maybe how that isn't a good strategy for life. Rafe Spall plays Teddy, a guy who has a reputation for putting things off, and waiting too long to act on important decisions like setting a wedding date to his fiance, Leanne (Zahra Newman). It's not that he's lazy or unmotivated, it's just that he likes to wait for the perfect time to act. One day while visiting his father's grave he meets a strange woman (Noni Hazlehurst) who promises to give him a gift on his wedding day. Teddy doesn't think too much of it but then, on his wedding day, he jumps forward a year in time, where Leanne is celebrating their one year wedding anniversary. Teddy barely has time to comprehend his predicament before he flashes forward to their two year anniversary. Long Story Short inevitably will be compared to the Bill Murray movie, Ground

Movie Review: Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) *Spoiler Free*

I must admit I definitely didn’t dislike the original, theatrical cut of Joss Wheden’s 2017 Justice League. In fact I gave it a mostly positive review and I bought the DVD. However after seeing Zack Snyder’s Justice League , a four hour epic, I definitely prefer the latter. Comparing the two versions, the overall story is mostly the same. Based on Lex Luthor’s warning at the end of Batman Versus Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman must assemble a team of superheroes to combat an imminent attack on the planet by an alien army. Where the versions differ is in the character development and backstory of each hero as they are brought into the team. As well you get a much more fleshed out backstory and motivation for the movie’s villains. Most of this character development is either scaled back or completely changed in the original 2017 release, with the major, major villain erased from that film entirely. I also got the sense that once the team comes together the mood between the characters

Lower Your Expectations, COVID-19 Vaccines Aren't a 'Cure-All'

I'm going to preface this post with the obvious, I'm not a medical expert. I have no experience with creating vaccines nor how they work. Everything that follows is based upon my own opinions and thoughts. Definitely do your own research on whether you want to get vaccinated for COVID-19 or not. The following cut'n'paste message has been circulating on Facebook. At least that's where I first came across it. It's not attributed to anyone so it's not possible to draw any conclusions about the original poster's motivations or intent: --- Post begins --- Let’s awaken some people’s minds... What happens if you decide to get "vaccinated" (beside the fact that you could end up very sick or even dead)??? Here are 12 important questions and answers before considering getting vaccinated: "If I get vaccinated can I stop wearing a mask(s)?" Government: "NO" "If I get vaccinated will the restaurants, bars, schools, fitness clubs, h

Podcasts for Comic Book Movie Nerds and Enterprising Side Hustlers

If you haven’t discovered Podcasts yet you’re missing out on an entire world of ready to listen to content covering a whole library of interests that you can download into your favorite mobile podcast app and listen to at your convenience. If you have I thought I’d spend take the opportunity to recommend some of the podcasts I’m listening to. My podcast app of choice is Beyond Pod for Android but any podcast app will probably do. Once you have your app installed search for these shows from within the app. Comic Book Movie Podcasts If you haven’t noticed I’m a total comic book movie nerd but I don’t really know anyone who likes these movies as much as I do. Consequently I seek out podcasts where I can hear all kinds of discussions surrounding these movies, from the moment they are first announced, to a scene by scene, spoiler breakdown of the final movie release (after I’ve seen the film of course).

TV Series Review: WandaVision (2021) *Spoiler Free*

Marvel Studios continues the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the small screen with the nine part series, WandaVision , now streaming on Disney+. Initially released weekly during January and February 2021, the entire series is now available to stream with a Disney+ subscription. Set a few weeks after Avengers: Endgame , superheroes, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olson) and Vision (Paul Bettany) appear to be living an idealistic life in a black and white 1950’s sitcom. However everything isn’t as it seems in this new reality. WandaVision is an unusual story about love, loss, grief, and healing told through the lens of witches and superheroes. It’s a fairly original concept with plenty of humor, interesting character development, and quite a few surprises. I don’t usually review television series, despite watching quite a lot of them through various streaming services, however WandaVision is definitely worth an exception. For me, the series was the closest yet to watching a live action version o

Crowne Plaza Hotel and Botanical Gardens, Adelaide, South Australia.

Crowne Plaza Hotel, Adelaide, South Australia My partner, Enigma, and I finally managed our two day getaway in Adelaide staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel , ideally located not far from the central shopping district, arts precinct, and cafe strip. I say 'finally' because we initially booked this getaway in November of 2020 and watched it disappear on the morning we were meant to leave as SA went into a hard lockdown due to a COVID19 outbreak. Frustratingly the lockdown turned out to be unnecessary thanks to a not entirely accurate reporting on the movements of one positive case. However the damage to our trip was done. Lock down was lifted two days later but we had to reschedule our stay for January. Thankfully the Crowne Plaza was able to honor the same discount prices we had initially booked for, bringing the stay within our budget for two nights. Service at the hotel has been good. This is the first hotel we've stayed at with a street level concierge, who explains where t

Five Websites to Print Your Own Custom Designs/Photos Onto T-Shirts and Other Gifts

Have you ever wanted to print your child’s art onto their very own skateboard, or create a calendar of all your holiday snaps (or maybe even a photo book)? That’s where Print On Demand websites come in. They specialise in printing custom images onto their products, with orders being as small as just one item. While many of these sites are designed for artists and photographers to open online shops to sell their designs that doesn’t mean you can’t use these sites too. There’s no reason you can’t open your own free shop for the sole purpose of buying your own printed designs - some sites will let you design custom products without needing to open a shop at all. Below I’ve created a list of five Print On Demand sites I’ve used and recommend, along with a sixth bonus option that you may not have even thought of but is probably the most convenient of all. Red Bubble - Has grown into quite possibly one of the biggest Print On Demand sites online. Registering a free account will give you acc
