No Smiling….and plans for 2010

No Smiling

With it being Christmas ‘n’ all I though this adapated ‘No Stopping’ sign seemed very appropriate, good on those that take the infrastructure of our regulated world and shove two fingers up at them.

On another note, coming in 2010 is my attempt at the daily photo concept; 365:2010. I will be posting a photo to my Flickr account every day, the rule is that the image must have been taken by me on that particular day. Being one of the iPhone owning masses I’ll be taking advantage of the Flickr app.

Then once a month I’ll be posting my favourite images to this blog. I think it’ll be a challenge to find something interesting every day, but then again does it have to be ‘interesting’, can it just be every day, can it just illustrate a part of my daily life…guess I’ll find out soon enough.


Leave your man bag at home

I stumbled across this poster one morning which had been left on the door of Eleven nightclub on Oxford St in Sydney, and found the long list of entry rules quite amusing. The club was formerly known as Boutique and before that Goodbar, both had a pretty bad reputation with Goodbar getting headlines after a shooting rampage.

Obviously they’re trying to clean up the image and I found the list of entry rules pretty amusing. For those that don’t know a ‘Rats Tail’ is a hairstyle where the majority of the persons hair is short or shaved but there is a long ‘tail’ of hair at the back, an example of which can be seen on Wikipedia. Also love the fact that you won’t get in with a man bag, probably to prevent drugs and weapons getting in the club. Considering the type of people that frequent these sort of clubs on Oxford St I’d be amazed if anyone got in!
