Y Ruby Y - people watching at the Saket PVR, New Delhi, India

this evening we went to dinner at Azzurro at the Saket PVR. we spent most of the night gazing out the window at the people walking by. it's amazing how the people here can look right past other people as if they don't exist. I probably shouldn't have taken photos/video, but I wanted to remember it and this helps me to remember.

why indeed..

this is a video of the Wickid Force breakdance crew at Battle of The Year 2003 in Sydney, Australia. 09/08/2003

the audio is a bit distorted so you might want to turn it down, but it gives you an idea of the energy of their performance - both style and technical moves!

the video file is about 100Mb so could take a while to load depending on your net connection

I found a video of Wickid Force's performance at BOTY2003 Germany on youtube also @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrPRafzxye8

Other Film Festival Sound Walk, Brisbane 24/03/2006 - video

I went along to the Sound Walk workshop and walk at Other Film Festival in Brisbane earlier this year. here's a slideshow video of some photos taken along the walk. it brought back such memories! the walk was from South Bank to the city along the river. we went through the Botannical Gardens near QUT Gardens Point which is where I went to Uni. everything was so familiar though I hadn't been there in a few years.

the music is "Don't you worry" by The Beloved

Bethells Beach, New Zealand

here's a slideshow video of a trip to Bethells Beach, not far from Auckland, New Zealand. 19/02/2006.

it's my favourite Auckland beach - dark, volcanic sand that sparkles in the sun. it's one of those raw untouched beaches where the sand dunes are still untouched, though erosion has started on them. like the beaches in QLD when we used to go as kids.

music is "Relaxin' with Cherry" by Kid Loco
