“It’s The Fucking Catalina Wine Mixer!”

Hello my non-yogic friends. How are you all?

It’s been literally months since I posted anything proper on here. All you’ve had from me are re-blogs of all this Yoga Bum stuff I’ve been doing. And while I’m sure you’ve enjoyed my current escapades, I’m sure some of you miss the old me, the one who trawled the internet for all kinds of dross to share with you here (I know I miss him).

Well, with the intermittent time/cost/availability of connections whilst traveling, there hasn’t been much chance to find and share stuff. But sometimes you have to make time. Nay, sometimes you are compelled.

I’ve had scenes from the movie Step Brothers going around in my head for days now. I dunno why. It’s not even one of my favourite movies. Maybe it’s a reaction to all this yogic/sattvic stuff I’ve been doing, but every now and then I have to stop, shake my head, and say “It’s the fucking Catalina Wine Mixer!” out loud for no good reason at all.

Now, assuming you don’t know what I’m on about, I’ve dredged up a few clips to share with you all. The first is a clip that has caused so many youTube parodies, but for you here we have the original Sweet Child Of Mine scene.

This next scene just makes me laugh so much. It’s just wrong on so many levels. I can’t say any more than that.

And of course, the final scene, the denouement, the Fucking Catalina Wine Mixer. All I can say is, stick with it, watch it all. All should become clear.

And there you go. Happy? I know I am. Ciao for now.

OK so, you may have noticed my last post has disappeared. I was asked to hide it for a while for reasons which I can’t go into yet, otherwise I’d have to hide this one as well, but it will be back asap.

For now I thought I’d just show you a few pics from the past week or two in Melbourne. They give a general idea of what I’ve been up to – outside of doing yoga, cooking and cleaning all the time.

The place where I’m staying is quite near the city, and you get some amazing views at night. Check this out for a complete Bladerunner Fantasy moment.

Imagine the sound of helicopters and police sirens, as there was when I took the photo, and I think you’ll agree it’s a movie moment and no mistake.

I’m also quite near the coast, which means St Kilda. On…

Well, it’s been an interesting couple of weeks in and around Melbourne. After the dramas of my arrival I then went and spent a week with my friends Tom and Petra, and their two little ones Lexie and Cian (more on that in another post).

Then on Tuesday (6 days ago) I came back to the city and moved in the new Sivananda Yoga Centre that has opened up here (their first in Australia).

SVYC Melbourne

Perhaps ‘opened’ is a bit of an exaggeration. The building is occupied, and it is mostly set up, but since a change of use license has to be applied for, the centre cannot officially open for a little while yet.

But still, there’s plenty to do to get things ready. I mean, downstairs is a bit spartan (we are awaiting delivery of some pictures to put up),

SVYC Melbourne, downstairs

but upstairs is starting to look nice,

SVYC Melbourne, asana hall, 1
