Surry Hills & Darlinghurst

Slice ePub May 28, 2014

Sydney’s hippest and gayest neighbourhood is also home to its most interesting dining and bar scene. For the most part it’s more gritty than pretty, and actual sights are thin on the ground, but there’s still plenty to do and see here, especially after dark. Rows of Victorian terrace houses are a reminder of its working class roots.

II. Symbolist Poems

Source: Symbolism
Slice ePub March 06, 2015





Recall the object we saw, my soul,

That beautiful summer morning, so sweet,

A foul carcass along the turn in the path

On a bed sown with pebbles.


Legs in the air, like a lewd woman,

Burning and sweating poisons,

Opened nonchalantly and cynically,

Its belly full of exhalations.


The sun shone on this rottenness,

To cook it to a turn,

And reclaim a hundredfold for great Nature

All that she had joined together;


And the sky watched that superb carcass

Like a flower blossoming out.

The stench was so strong, that on the grass

You thought you would pass out.


Flies buzzed over the belly so putrid,

Whence came forth black battalions

Of larvae which flowed like a thick liquid

Along the length of these living rags.


All together it descended and rose like a wave

Or sprang forth, sparkling,

It was said that, swollen with vague breath,

2. Playing Keynote Slideshows

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Dim the house lights, raise the curtains, and cue the applause sign, it's show time at last. With the spotlight on you and your pitch, the last thing you need is a complicated set of controls for moving through your slides. Happily, Keynote makes it dead easy to advance through your slides using the keyboard or a remote control.

In fact, Keynote gives you three ways to run the show: you can use your own power, set the slideshow to run automatically, or give your audience control via hyperlinks. This chapter covers all three.

To get started, open the Keynote document, and select the first slide in the show using the slide navigator or by choosing SlideGo toFirst Slide. (You can also select a different slide if you'd like to start somewhere in the middle of your presentation.) Now start the show: Click the toolbar's Play button, choose PlayPlay Slideshow, or press -Option-P. Your first slide flickers onto the screen, and you're on.

You can set up your slideshow to begin playing automatically as soon as you open the document, not a bad idea for slideshows you've finished editing. Open the Document Inspector, and turn on the "Automatically play upon open" option. That way, Keynote opens directly to the first slide and launches into your slideshow, completely bypassing the editing screenthe "man behind the curtain" whom it's best to keep tucked away from your audience. To stop the show and bring up the editing view, press the Escape key, Q (for quit), or period [.].
