My confidence is low, sleep is sadly lacking causing mistakes and missteps both personal and professional. The reason I have time to blog tonight is that the thesis is currently static. I've hit yet another dead end, and I am waiting for some help, which will come tomorrow or perhaps the next day. It cannot come quickly enough.
So consequently here are a few things I can recommend so far in 2014.
- Former Premier of New South Wales, Neville Wran died last month. Political types should watch the funeral that contains some special speeches from Keating, historian Rodney Cavilier and a few others.
- Musically, there's nothing like listening to this, closin' the doors and windows, turning up the last 2 mins REALLY LOUD, and singing backing vocals
- Errol Morris's new documentary on Donald Rumsfeld, The Unknown Known is destined to be one of the best films of 2014 equal to The Fog Of War. It comes out in Austraila June 5th, or you could download it...
- Read the second part of Matthew Condon's 'Terry Lewis Trilogy' Jacks and Jokers, I can't wait for it to conclude. So good.
- Everything about Billy Eichner is hilarious, especially this
- I attended Bruce Springsteen's Brisbane concert in February where he played a remarkable cover of the Bee Gee's Staying Alive
