It’s a I Don’t Like Mondays just like in the Geldof song (the Amos interpretation), each week of January more people return every Monday : “Tell me why. I don’t like Mondays. I want to shoot : The whole day down”, as I’m really lacking the duality of geek power + money peeps; Otherwise known as resources. Fk. Trying to turn a dime into a dollar as Hustle + Flow ripped from somewhere originally ? Ok now I’m clicking around YouTube… from the Amos cover to the one by Patti Smith.. I’m totally buying Patti Smith’s take on Smells like Teen Spirit, which was amazing live - thku:P - ‘hullo, hullo, hullo, with the lights out, it’s less dangerous…. i feel stupid + contagious….” Sometimes not being a computer programmer makes u absolutely fn powerless. (Segueway) Kinda like trying to catch supernatural evil beings which I watched last night, which after a too long family outing to Botanical Gardens I watched Demons : Skins Meets True Blood - Grab the torrents ere S01:E01+E02, which has the Life on Mars UK lead in it. Via Wikipedia :
“The plot follows the adventures of a London teenager Luke Rutherford, who learns that he is the last descendant of the Van Helsing line by the sudden arrival of his American godfather Rupert Galvin. Luke is charged with the role of smiting the gathering dark forces of the world whilst trying to live an ordinary life of exams and parties. Rupert Galvin helps train Luke with the assistance of Mina Harker, a blind concert pianist and authority on half-lives (i.e., vampires, demons, zombies, and werewolves). Luke’s best friend Ruby also joins in on the action. Luke’s first adversary is a dangerous vampire bounty hunter called Gladiolus Thrip. Thrip hates the Van Helsings and is determined to end the family line.”
There’s a good summary of the Demons backstory over at Times Online : “In Demons, he sports a nattier wardrobe and a slightly creepy American accent, but is still hefting a big gun and tossing insults at villains. Today, this feels like the coldest place on earth, and cast and crew are visibly envious of the warm suits of the actors playing the monsters.Fast-forward nine months, and the first episode is finished. Entitled They Bite, it is written by Peter Tabern, the series creator, who takes no risks by mashing up the pilot of Buffy with the not dissimilar introductory show of the revived Doctor Who. A teenager, Luke Rutherford (Christian Cooke), is studying for exams and going to parties, when his life is invaded by supernatural troublemakers - a CGI rat-human, hoodie werewolves and Mackenzie Crook as a vampire with a silly name (Gladiolus Thrip).”

The Betaworks model is my favourite of the incubator/seed funders and what a track record they have. Would love to apply this model to the Australian market - $100K investments plus alot of brainstrust, roll sleeves up mentoring, sometimes office space, and working along side other smart people in keiretsu 2.0. If only some of the 8 and 9 figure internet success stories in Australia would reinvest in this type of way - which is structured but fluid enough to create the X_Factor.
