In an age where the politics of fear are ever more pervasive and prevalent, it takes brave men and satire to punch a hole in the mindless and devisive fear mongering.

Bravo to the Chaser for exposing not only the farce of the security for APEC, but its flaws.

This stunt demonstrates that the rhetoric about 'real and present danger' is nothing but that, rhetoric, and that even those beating the divisive drums of fear dont take themselves seriously enough to implement genuine security procedures.

APEC security crackdowns are naught but a political stunt.

Frankly, I'm inspired, and my faith in this country to not fall blindly into step with our paranoid and over sensitive friends from the US has been restored.

Well I havent said anything for a while, so lets do an updatey thing.

In the time since my last update:

I finished uni.
I went onto the books as a full time employee (sick leave and annual leave for the win!!! )
I went on a date or three. (none of them went anywhere afterwards, c'est la vie)
I played a lot of rugby, I got a black eye (playing rugby), it was awesome, and HUGE and I had to custom make the phantom of the opera mask I wore to Jo's 21st because all the other phantom masks go on the side where I didnt have a black eye.
I watched a lot of motorsport! CASEY STONER - AWESOME!!!
I saw Transformers - awesome, Shrek 3 - Terrible but fun, Fantastic Four - terrible, but cool.
I worked a lot, and quite hard, which was a blast.
I went out a lot, danced alot, drank a little bit, flirted a lot.

Its been a busy period, without anything really happening, but hey, C'est La Vie.

I am trucking along quite well, and look forward to the rest of the year.

hmmm...

yep, thats about the size of it.

xox etc.

Whats hot:

Hip Hop and String sections - awesome
Casey Stoner at the top of the MotoGP World Championship still - brilliant
Spanking one of my exams -neat
Getting at least a D for all my units - mint
My new hair cut - (even if I do say so myself)
Fiona - the sexy vet student
My bed, and the electric blanket on it
Rugby - and the associated weight loss, as well as the associated feeelings of manliness when I crash into someone huge and get hurt. :D

Whats not:

My POS car blowing up - $2K worth of damage.
Being so broke I think I'm going to die of starvation!
Work, and the lack thereof
Uni, and the exam period
My dicky neck and shoulder, which are currently complaining in loud measures about the playing of Rugby.

So, if anyone gives a shit, thats me in a nutshell at the moment. :D

Your Score: Cary Grant


You scored 7% Tough, 14% Roguish, 33% Friendly, and 47% Charming!



You are the epitome of charm and style, the smooth operator who steals the show with your sophisticated wit, quiet confidence and flirty sense of humor. You are able to catch any woman you want just by flashing that disarming smile, even if you're flashing it at a kindly aunt or engaging child at the time. When you walk into a room, women are instantly intrigued and even the men are impressed, but you're too nice a guy to steal anyone else's girl...unless the guy deserves it. You're stylish, yes, but you can also be a little bit nutty. However, you're primarily seen as dashing, suave and romantic. Your co-stars include Katharine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly, stylish women with a sense of fun.

Dear 'Dark and Twisty Jacob,

You are not Dawson, or Meredith Grey, or any other television drama character.

Not every emotion has to be accompanied by a driving and searching monologue filled with life affirming or edifying witticisms.

Not every interaction requires a delicately prosaic and deeply enrichening and soul-deep truism.

You can say things like "Thank you, that made me feel good" in EXACTLY that sentence. There is no need to say "The abyss of my darkness has been replaced by the beacon of your Wella Bronze/Platinum 23 Hairdye and the shimmering radiance of your words" or any other such verbose, hyperbolic or grandiose piece of self-obsessed elitist drivel.

There is no need to make up words, words like 'hyperbolic'

This is just life.
You are just a person. A real person. A normal person. That brooding look you do? Yeah, No. Doesn't work. It makes you look constipated.

Now talk like a normal person and stop trying to make your life an entertaining and catharticaly confronting experience for some imaginary spectator.

Got it?

Talk normal.

Good boy.

Love,



Normal Jacob.

Updatey Time!

Boring bits first:
I am still broke.
I have been on a date or two, but nothing really promising, although, Sydney girl, (who left to work in Sydney) is coming back to Perth and has been emailing me! Of course, this is unlikely to go anywhere, but for now, I'm going to imagine it might, because that is fun.

Much less boring bits:
Some of my friends are suffering through some gear right now, I have been there, or somewhere similar, and I can feel for you, (i know that seems unlikely, but i do have a sense of where your at) and i am also here for you in every way you can think of.

And now on to me!!

I HAD MY FIRST EVER JOURNALISM WORK!!
PAID!

I got to go to Barbagallo Raceway and cover the V8 Supercars for VMag! It was fantastic, and I seemed to really impress all the journos from over east who I was alongside in the media centre, I am unbelievably excited about it, and it may speed up me moving over east to break into the industry. I certainly think there is a place for me, and I was really ridiculously happy working all weekend doing what I absolutely love.

I can supply copies of Vmag4 and Vmag 5 (the ones i worked on) for anyone who wants them emailed to them. I would really love you to read my work and even comment on it.

Things in general are bouncing along really well for me right now. A lot of it is just a shift in attitude.

We are currently in at High St in freo. In the new building. The new furniture arrives soon and you will all have to see it. I was actually in here late on the sunday night the natinoal hotel burnt down, and got to watch it first hand. the firetrucks pulled up outside the office, and i went outside and WOOOMPAH!! building burning down. It was pretty exciting, though a little sad to.

To be honest. Thats about it. I thought i had more to say, but i dont.

I miss a lot of you who I dont see often enough.

But its not a sad thing, its kind of beautiful to know that I miss you, and that I will be excited to see you upon your return.

You people are stars.

Thanks a ton for everything. I love my life right now.

(and yes, there is a big fuck off Jacob B grin on my dial)

xo etc.
