What a Wonga

So, I had this plan to go to Australia. Actually I had a plan to go to Japan, but then the plan to go to Australia replaced it. I wanted to go for the same reason, just the location and the duration changed, oh, and the occupation.

I found out that the place I’d been hounding in Japan for a job weren’t taking anyone on, then I got offered to do a PhD in Sydney, which would last 3 years. I agreed because I wanted to escape, to turn over a new leaf as it were. However, I hadn’t completely sold myself on doing it. I planned on just doing it until I got bored then I’d bail out. That’s not a great attitude.

I didn’t actually want to do it, someone else wanted me to do it, so I said no. I really hope I don’t regret it.

Then a while ago, I went to this reunion of my school. I went because there were supposed to be free burgers, and also for semi-voyeuristic reasons. Everyone (almost without exceptions) was a banker. That’s everyone that went. A lot of people didn’t turn up. Mostly the people I wanted to see. Oh well.

Doing jury service made me realize how many stupid people there are here in London. Not the victims and the defendants, but the jury. The jury are selected 100% at random. The only thing that everyone has in common is that they’re registered to vote. Other than that they’re a perfect cross section of London.

Then last week was working on this “holographic interactive installation” for Future Cinema‘s Watchmen preview. The party was awesome. There were strippers, roller girls, fire hydrants a 50’s diner, a tank, hobos, american police cars, fake news reporters, oh and a preview of a film that wasn’t out yet. Gallows played too.

Here’s some photos:

Off to Amsterdam next weekend.

    Administrators for Wonga, which collapsed last year, also revealed that they had scrapped plans to sell its loan book, saying there were doubts that bidders met the criteria, including properly approaching customers for debt payments on outstanding loans.
