While I was on The Wolverine at the end of 2012 I had access to a metal buffing machine so thought it was worth giving my trusty Atomic Cappuccino Maker a good clean and refresh. Over time it slowly tarnishes and once every few years it’s nice to return it to it’s brilliant, shiny newness.
Last time I did this while working on Narnia and sadly damaged the label which I wasn’t able to have replaced without taking it personally into Bon Trading. You have to understand, there are copies out there which people label with an Atomic label to then pass off as the real thing, so the good folk at Bon Trading need to see the unit to confirm it’s genuine. Sadly this meant I had to wait until I returned to Sydney which fortunately for me was in 2012.
The moment I dropped my Atomic on the counter I had a surprise reaction from the staff. I don’t think they have seen an atomic that shiny in a good long time. It even scrubbed up better than a new machine after being freshly polished.
We all got raving about it so I asked Irene to tell us a few things about the atomic and its history.
I thought it was worth bringing the whole story of Sabina and my trip to Canberra as part of #HumanBrochure in one place. What better way than the best of the audio and images I could find from the greater group of people we meet on the week-end.
I asked the other ‘Humans’ for their thoughts on #HumanBrochure.
I love audio.
I mean… I really love audio!
As a way of getting the personal thoughts and emotions from people about a variety of issues there is nothing better than recording their voice. And as we were all in Canberra as guests of the #HumanBrochure campaign put on by Australian Capital Tourism I thought it would be worth recording the opinions of some of the other ‘Humans’ about their experiences.
As part of the #HumanBrochure campaign for Australian Capital Tourism we were welcomed at the Australian War Memorial and presented with some of what this iconic Canberra museum has to offer. Sure it was a quick and somewhat superficial visit but we only had a couple of hours and the idea was to give us a taste of that the AWM has to offer.
After the introductions, welcomes and main audiovisual presentation I thought it was worth hearing from a few of the ‘Humans’ what their thought and opinions of the Memorial.
Here is some varying opinions on what we thought of the Australian War Memorial.

I’ve been producing online for a half-dozen years now but it’s rare for me to receive any bonus for doing something I enjoy but this last week-end that’s exactly what’s happened as part of the #HumanBrochure campaign for Visit Canberra put on by Australian Capital Tourism.
It all started with flying with my daughter Sabina to Canberra for a ‘just the two of us’, trip together. It’s been a long time since we’ve had the chance to spend quality time together, especially since Sabina has grown up and it was particularly nice to mix it with activities, fine food and new friends to make it all the better.
Tweet Maybe our last holiday together, just for being a ‘Human’. With my daughter Sabina now being 21 years old, this will most probably be the last time just the two of us will get the chance to have a holiday together. And it’s even a bit of a surprise that we should get that chance. You [...]
