Our Wedding Dance

We started going to beginner ballroom lessons at Gilkisons in Perth when we were still just friends. So when we got engaged we decided to have a few private lessons with a teacher who could choregraph a special dance for our wedding.

The Local Bandicoots

Most of the year excluding winter this bandicoot and a couple of others visit every night for biscuits. Weirdly they have made friends with the cats and will touch noses with them through the gate….

Nature by Numbers – Fibonacci anyone?

This is a nifty animation showing how the Fibonacci sequence is present in a lot of the patterns we find in nature, even patterns that at first look somewhat random. The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers where each number in the series is the sum of the two previous numbers: ‎0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144…. = Fibonacci sequence.
Or for the less geeky among us… oooh shiny animation that is nice to look at with a very pretty piece of music behind it.

String theory, Relativity and Einstein’s theory of everything

Sadly I think this proves the meaning of life is a little more complex than 42….

Ever wanted to know what they are on about on the TV show The Big Bang Theory? pbs.org has an interesting and easy to understand three part documentary on the basics of String and M Theory and the origins of these theories.

Finally Einstein’s theory of relativity has been presented to me in a format I found fairly easy to assimilate.
I still geek out from time to time so I found this online three part series awesome. Well worth the watch, but it did hurt my brain a bit…

The three parts can be watched free online at pbs.org: click the link here http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/program.html

Men vs Women’s advertising

Here is a clip from the UK show, That Mitchell and Webb look. It is a disturbingly accurate look at how advertisers pitch products to men and women very, very differently.

These guys are quite amusing check out some of their other work and if you like it buy their DVDs.

Still one of my favourite ads

This was one of the most successful advertising campaigns ever for the yellow pages. It is quite old now but it is so simple and effective it still works quite well now. Still able to give me a mild giggle many years later.
