UPDATE 1

Nearly finished my site (This site) after starting to rebuild it late last year. Nearly ready to start churning out content, I've got one website to finish building for my brother in law. My goal was to be at this stage at the end of the financial year. Can't wait to start writing and making videos instead of designing websites. Last month I declared on Facebook I'm not taking on any new clients, rather than shut down my web design business I've tripled the price so it's in line with other web design businesses in town so if I do have the distraction of making another site, I'll know it's worth the time.

IMPLODING KITTENS (EXPANSION PACK)

If you’ve got β€œExploding Kittens” I recommend the expansion pack to spice up the game! **** 4.5 Stars

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

Canon M100 Mirrorless Camera

This is the M50's little brother, very compact, I would have considered buying it over the M50 if it had a microphone jack incorporated. Great camera if you want something small that will do everything and take different lenses.

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

Aldi Mobile (Value Pack)

I use a lot of data but all through wifi, not some much on my phone, the Aldi S Value pack gives me unlimited calls and texts and 2.5Gig of data for $15 a month. It's a steal.

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

Canon M50 Mirrorless Camera

This is my new camera I shoot video with, it's awesome, it's great value for what it does and I know it's will cover all my video an photography needs.

Akubra “Western Plains” Hat is made exclusively for Blowes Clothing.

Just purchased this Akubra for $160. Love it! The Western Plains is a true classic, this rugged and high-quality hat is made of 100% pure Australian-made rabbit felt, and features a pinched crown, 83mm brim, and satin lining.

Google Photos

Google Photos is the best way to store your photos and videos online, you can select to have them all up in the cloud for free just by allowing Google to compress the files so they don't take up as much disk space, A great deal!

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

CODENAMES PICTURES

I’ve got myself a copy, haven’t had a chance to play it but some say it’s better for than the original, and one that even an eight-year-old can enjoy!

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

EXPLODING KITTENS

This is a perla of a little card game. Well worth the money and with the β€œImploding Kittens” expansion pack you can have even more fun! **** 4 Stars

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

Smart Ass – Board Game

My Father-inLaw has this game and I absolutely enjoy playing it, I'm not good at it but it is heaps of fun. If you're good at trivia you'll love it too.

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

Specsavers – Mens $39 glasses w/ Prescription.

I lose my glasses too often so the days of spending $300 on a pair of specs are over. Specsavers have a great range of cheap frame worth looking at, the prescription lenses and eye tests are covered under Medicare and if you say no to all the upselling, you can get a pair of prescription specs for $39, bargain!

Tripod Phone Clip

Put your phone on a tripod easily or attach it to a gorilla pod and do some vlogging, I do both, they cost almost nothing and are very handy indeed.

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

NVIDIA Shield TV

The Shield TV is the best Android TV platform by far by the looks of it. I purchased a cheap $100 no-name Android TV which is just really buggy and the user control is crap, the only benefit is it comes with SHOWBOX, I'm not sure whether you can install SHOWBOX on Sheild TV, but I do wish I forked out the extra cash for it. The shield is still a great price for what it is and does.

HP Metal Clip High-capacity USB

A tough, stylish USB drive you can hang on your keyring and take everywhere, it won't break and there will be times when having a thumb drive close by will be certainly useful.

CODENAMES

I absolutely love this game, it’s my favourite of all time, along with the game β€œSmart Ass”. It’s a great present idea! ***** 5 Stars

πŸ€ Somebody had to be me. Might as well be me! – Charles Barkley

Ricky Nolan Browne was born April 6th 1977. He has a wife, a son and a kid on the way.

Ricky was diagnosed with a mental illness in 2001 (around the same time he became a prophet, coincidentally). Ricky got pro-active about recovering from issues relating to his (at the time) poorly managed condition after he hit rock bottom in 2012 and has been on a recovery journey ever since. Ricky now enjoys a happy and fulfilling life despite his diagnosis.

Ricky is a high functioning schizophrenic that likes to spend his time in productive and sometimes useful ways, mostly in the digital realm. He makes a living designing websites, along with money he gets from the government for being crazy and shit.

Mission Statement.

Mission:

Goal: To help people (myself included) gain a clearer picture of the world, how it works and how it could work, how we are and how we could be, looking at both the world and the individual.

Focus: A meta-cognitive (how we think about thinking) approach to what motivates our own actions and those of others.

Outcomes: Cutting through the noise and helping people gain the insights necessary to point themselves to solutions to the problems we all face on a personal and global level by making what is hidden, seen.

, Ricky Nolan Browne, πŸ”΄ Ricky Nolan Browne

The Struggling Artist.

OnΒ Writing

Ricky learned to write at school, most of his early writing was crap because like most kids he was ignorant and stupid. He had early success with a really short story called β€œRicky by Ant” and later in high school for a four-page booklet called β€œThe big note under the door”, which was thrown out by his mother as it included illustrations of a pair of mosquitos engaging in fourplay. Ricky wasn’t a good reader in his younger years and avoided it whenever possible. He read 3 or 4 novels while at school and after high school his only reading was computer magazines, he started reading regularly when he got dial-up internet. While Ricky’s writing has improved, he has had periods where he wasted a lot of time thinking about writing but put so much pressure on himself, he could not produce. He has since realised his limitations and finds it easier to write his bullshit nobody wants to read.

On Art & Design

Although Ricky enjoyed art in school and did pretty good in art class, he had no interest in pursuing it as a career. Ricky wanted to be a comedian and assumed that he would just have to act like a fool 24/7 and somehow by osmosis, he would be discovered. This never happened so Ricky decided to be the next Mark Zuckerburger, at a time when Facebook didn’t exist. What happened while following this pursuit, Ricky signed up to a web design course in order to create the next big thing and actually learned how to make dinky HTML websites for other people.

While pursuing his goals of world domination, his course also led him to learn how to design graphics on the computer, leading him full circle back to the whole art thing.

Has he improved much over time? That’s debatable, but he has at least stopped using the glow tool all the time and has moved on from the font β€˜Bank Gothic’.

On Illustration

Ricky N Browne never had the hand coordination or creativity to be a great illustrator, this, however, has not stopped him from giving it a red hot go. Ricky started out drawing dicks as a kid and has progressed ever so slowly from there.

He recently purchased a cheap electronic illustration tablet which has renewed his interest in the drawing.

On Humour

Ricky N Browne’s old mantra was β€œMake them laugh, at any cost”. Ricky is a changed man these days, with a mantra more along the lines of β€œGet off my lawn,” Ricky got laughs at an early age, which made him decide to become someone who was looking for the funny in every situation, no matter its appropriateness. Ricky has since grown into a crotchety old man who cares little for this sort of shenanigans and tomfoolery.

On Achievements

Ricky has yet to win the Order of Australia Medal, an Oscar, a Logie, a Bafta, the Medal of Honour, Australian of the Year, or even a free Paddle Pop from a Streets Paddle Pop Licker Prize. You name it and Ricky hasn’t won it. Ricky has however received various Certificates for Courses he completed including the odd First Aid Certificate. Ricky also has a certificate of his almost spotless police record, except for a mention of his license disqualification for drinking and driving. Ricky’s certificates can be found here. Among Ricky Nolan Browne’s achievements was a play he was part of (Circa. 2014) called β€˜Away’ which he performed with the Wesley Players where he was able to remember over half of his lines.

I AM GUARDIAN.
