Rio 2016 - Part 2 [Dish #65]

How We did


This was an interesting Olympics for a lot of nations and Australia is no exception to this. We didn't end up up doing as well in the medals department as we did back in London's 2012 Olympics but in many ways it felt like a greater success. By the same token however, we also had many enormous let downs.

Rio 2016 - Part One [Dish #64]

The Opening Ceremony


As the Olympics draw nearer to a close, I feel like sharing my thoughts on them a little with a sort of "mini-series". The Rio Olympics have been marred by controversy - something I'll talk about in another entry - but there have been plenty of high notes as well.

Dance Derby Pie 1 (Dish #63]

Dance Derby Pie - Kyle Hanagami


So, for a while now I've had a bit of writers block when it comes to my blog, but from a moment of boredom and misery came an idea. I've been sick for ten months now and unable to do the thing that I love most - dance. It's given me a real appreciation for just how much I love the art form and the competitive sport in not only my own discipline (ballroom) but all of its varieties.

What kind of a non-gamer (or at least a person who isn't a hardcore gamer) gets onto Steam during a big sale and ends up spending around $70AU? What kind of ridiculous human being spends that much money on games when they still have a bunch of other Steam games they barely play or haven't touched and plenty of unfinished console games?
