Weird ass bird of the day goes to - a single Welcome Swallow fluttering along about 50km from the coast.

Forget whaling tours to see whales. Go on Pelagic bird trips. Last time was a pod of 20 minke whales checking out the boat. This time we had about 4 humpback whales, spy hopping, fin slapping, BREACHING, OFTEN. Amazing.

Not much in the way of birds, but we did get good looks of the birds we did see. Only 3 actual pelagic species - Yellow-nosed Albatross, about 40 of them hanging around the boat, a single Sooty Shearwater that cruised in and hung around for ages and a few Wilson's Storm-petrels that whizzed around the boat on occaision, appearing and disappearing behind the waves. I didn't realise they were so tiny.

Great Skua (which is apparently soon to be split out into the Brown Skua) were common, one in particular followed the boat and sat in close, allowing for lots of great photos. The odd bunch of Australasian Gannets flying by and Crested Terns even way out to sea.

Oh yes, and we also saw two species of butterfly waaay out to sea.

Watching extras on the T2 DVD.

Footage of Eddie Furlong at 13 years old!! OMG he was so cute back then.

Nowdays I think "cute" as in "oh cute kid" kinda way, back when I was 13 I swore I was going to marry him.

Hehe.

Also interesting. T2s effects these days are nothing, everyone does them and much more.

Back back in 1991 the liquid metal effect was totally groundbreaking. Interesting how things develop.
