Jurassic June is here!

1st JUNE 2018: It's been a long wait, but the most 'Jurassic' month of the year is upon us. There are a few exciting things in store for all fans of the Jurassic Park franchise this month, with the release of both "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" and "Jurassic World Evolution" (a park management sim in which you get to create and manage your own series of Jurassic Parks). Follow @JurassicOutpost and @JurassicJune if you want to keep up with all the goinga on. To celebrate in my own little way, I thought it would be fun to replace my profile picture around the place with the below. Happy #JurassicJune everyone!"

JURASSIC PARK THEME (on Ukulele!)

8th FEBRUARY 2018: Another fun part of our recent trip to Hawai'i was getting to visit multiple filming locations for the one and only 'Jurassic Park'. During a tour through Allerton Garden (on Kauai's south side) I got a chance to play my little rendition of the Jurassic Park theme right where they filmed a scene from the film (specifically this one). Enjoy!

Hawaiian Adventure 2018

4th FEBRUARY 2018: Well once again, it's been a while since I have posted here! The funny thing is - despite not having posted a single update during 2017 - it was one of the biggest years of my (and Mel's) life. We both turned 30. We purchased and moved into a home together. We, uh, got married? So yeah, a few things.

Will aim to share a few things regarding those events soon - but while it is all fresh in my head, I thought I'd best jump to it and share a few shots from our adventures in Hawai'i over te past three weeks!

In a nutshell, we spent one night on the island of Oahu before jetting over to Kauai for one week. We later headed back to Oahu by the end of the trip, managed to cover a lot of ground on both islands. Got to catch up with friends and cousins too! - James

The Jurassic Outpost

26th JUNE 2016: Busy times! For just on a year now, we have been slowly developing a brand new logo, website and overall identity for an ultimate reasource covering all things Jurassic. This fun project was for fellows at Jurassic Outpost, previously known as JurassicWorld.org.

Image

Image

Along with this rebrand, we also looked at the refresh of the JurassicWorld.org podcast, now known as "InGeneral: The Jurassic Outpost Podcast" and the creation of Jurassic Forums - a place where Jurassic fans from all walks of life can converse and chat about the Jurassic Franchise. Good times!

Spencertoons: New Website

4th JANUARY 2016: Happy New Year all! I thought I'd kick off the new year with a quick share of a site I've been working on for the past little while. A friend of mine (Josh Spencer) is a caricaturist and illustrator based in Sydney. Feel free to hit him up - his stuff is gold. joshspencer.com.au

The Art of the Brick @ Sydney's Powerhouse Museum

22nd NOVEMBER 2015: I thought I'd share a few shots I snapped whilst checking out "The Art of the Brick: DC Superheroes" Exhibition by Lego artist Nathan Sawaya. It was a heap of fun! Get tickets from: https://maas.museum/event/the-art-of-the-brick-dc-comics/

The Darkness in Sydney

16th NOVEMBER 2015: I headed in to the Enmore Theatre to see "The Darkness" on Friday night - it was indeed an amazing show. It was loud, fast and a heap of fun.

When I awoke on Saturday morning, I discovered that other fans of rock also ventured out on Friday evening - only to not come home. My thoughts are with those affected by the evil in Paris. My thoughts are also with those who didn't get the same coverage in other countries that have had awful events occur recently also - including Beirut, and the already war-torn Syria.

I have not yet changed my profile photo to have a flag overlay, nor will I in the future, as it would mean a new profile shot on a weekly basis. My thoughts are definitely with all who have lost their lives, but I feel shrouding our faces with flags only promotes the idea that we should all be taking sides in a world where we should be unifed. #TheDarkness #FindTheLight

Rick's Bag! [The Walking Dead]

13th SEPTEMBER 2015: I thought I'd quickly share my recent geek purchase - an official Rick Grimes Sheriff bag. As this bag appears to be one of the longest surviving members on this entire show, I had to buy it. Despite being some typical TV show merch, it's actually quite durable. Cause, you know, zombies.
