Woo, I'm writing for Australian Guitar!

This is a nice little step up. At the moment it's just one amp review, but hopefully more will follow. I'm currently writing for Mixdown, a monthly national street press music gear mag. Australian Guitar is a glossy mag available in newsagents. They need me to double the size of a Hughes & Kettner review I did for Mixdown earlier this year. The coolest thing about it is that THEY came to ME. I assume the distributor didn't have an amp available for them to review, and remembered that I'd reviewed it for Mixdown and therefore recommended they contact me.

However it happened, I'm finally attaining my goal of writing for a glossy after a decade of street press and online magazines!

Yep. You have no idea how hard it is to write upside down while riding a kangaroo when it's trying to shake the saddle off.

I never knew you used a saddle with a kangaroo, I always thought you could just hop in their pouch. I guess you learn something new everyday.
