Women And Ghostbusters #NotMyGhostbusters

parapsych uwa k sturgess

Just a brief little blogpost on the topic (I'm heading out today to help behind the scenes at the Perth Fringe World Festival) in regards to what I think will happen with the film:There will be people (mostly guys, from what I see on Twitter) who don't like the idea of a reboot at all, let alone one featuring a primarily female cast. I dither about liking reboots myself - the next Fantastic Four doesn't thrill me, for example. I'm just waiting for the solid facedesk the world will make … [Read more...]

radio at 5am

There's a number of my interviews starting to pop up more regularly on RTRFM, the local arts/culture radio station, this year. Not bad for a podcaster with a distinct science-philosophy tendency in her shows!I'll be on the air from 9am-noon on Mondays, in a live-to-air show called the Morning Magazine, for the foreseeable future. For those of you in the USA, that's 9pm-midnight East Coast time, and noon-3pm East Coast Australia time. I occasionally do an earlier show, called Snooze Button, … [Read more...]

Memories From 2014 – Thanks And Farewell To The Year

It's starting to be a little 12-Days-Of-Christmas with lists, but what is the end of the year if you don't take stock a little? Thank you to all my friends, family and fellow workers for making it one to remember. Especially if you're from USA, New Zealand, Germany, the AFA, a Patreon supporter, a Token Skeptic podcast supporter, helped with the Indiegogo book, or one of the many awesome community radio station peeps - or taught me to dance. Or were the Pet Shop Boys.Closing of the … [Read more...]

My New Year Facebook Notification

Have a happy new year everyone!If you got engaged this year (!!) - congratulations! I didn't see the Facebook update until two weeks after the fact, and felt really awkward about seeming so rude about it for not being excited at the time, because I had no idea.If you got pregnant, I only found out via Twitter and congratulations about that too! I'm mortified that I was last to know. The kid will be entering University by the time I learn about the birth.If you immigrated, well done! … [Read more...]

Open House Perth Adventures 2014

Ooof, it's been a busy, busy month - but I'm overwhelmingly happy along with "being busy" and it's going to remain that way for a while, I think, because not only did the book funding meet its target (I threw a bunch of thanks online via social media, but in case that was missed - thanks again!) but I'm getting closer to the end of term and have a draft book edited and ready for revisions already!Here's a few photos of what I've been up to over the weekend. This is the annual Open House … [Read more...]

Last Two Days Fundraising For The New Token Skeptic Book!

I'm down to the last two days for the new book fundraiser!Spread the word if you can - just a blogpost, Tweet, a FB post or a Google + can help make it past 50%... or maybe even 60%... ? The whole book is now handed in to Alex, the editor of the new book - I'm now down to a quiet week with sound editing to make the audio version.Let's not forget a cover and a title! I've had two in mind and discovered that one was already used by an author, so that's narrowed it down. I'll be working o … [Read more...]

Water Dowsing And The Head Of Australia’s CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation)??

You might be wondering if it's some kind of joke: He's interested in the development of technology that would make it easier for farmers to dowse or divine for water on their properties."I've seen people do this with close to 80 per cent accuracy and I've no idea how they do it," he said."When I see that as a scientist, it makes me question, 'is there instrumentality that we could create that would enable a machine to find that water?'"I've always wondered whether there's something … [Read more...]
