bedtime for buttons

it appears that brian and david are going to have to move out of their flat, so i've been checking out alternative accommodation. this will do very nicely...

buttons on bondi

in case my last post about my passion for opera gave the impression that i am rather effete, then i'd like to counter that with an image from a few years ago when i was working as a rabbit-lifeguard on bondi beach.

No Surfing!

as if happened, i didn't have to save any surfboarding bunnies during that particular day, on account of its being the middle of australia's winter just after a heavy hailstorm! In fact, the beach was deserted apart from a lone jogger and his dog, myself and whatsisname, my photographer.

but, had my services been required, i was fully prepared!

hoppera nights

some of my regular readers may not be aware of me in my role as an arbiter of high culture, but i can tell you that i know what's what when it comes to the arts.

here i am, for example, waiting for the curtain to go up on an opera at la teatro fenice in venice.

in the background you can see the presidential box where i was obviously invited to have a seat but graciously declined so as not to upset brian and david who were having to sit with the plebs...
