Live Review: Nickelback @ Allphones Arena, Sydney (24.11.12)

Our review of Nickelback‘s Sydney concert was originally published at

Nickelback Sydney 2012

Despite the constant barrage of name-calling and derision that this Canadian monster rock band seems to receive from all corners of the globe, this reviewer has always felt that Chad Kroeger and co’s ability to write larger-than-life, catchy hooks can simply not be denied. Additionally, for all the slings and arrows fired in their direction accusing them of being sell-outs, plastic, fake and everything else, you surely have to admit that their catalogue contains some truly fist-pumping moments.

Apparently some 20,000 people agreed with us on November 24 when Nickelback filled the Allphones Arena for the first of two nights. The band’s broad appeal was certainly obvious when you looked at the seemingly disparate throng making their way into the over-sized shed at Sydney’s Olympic Park through several layers of security, bag checks and ushers.

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Household Textures 2

24 Nov

This week we’ve raced around the house looking for some fresh textures and we found some beauties. I don’t think you’ll find anyone else offering a high-resolution texture of dried chamomile flowers, eh?! This week we’ve brought you a collection of six high-resolution images of different textures found around the home; but primarily around the kitchen including a chopping board, dirty tea towel, range hood aluminium mesh as well as my keyboard and a fabric cushion from the library.

As usual, all Hosking Industries texture images are FREE for personal and commercial use unless otherwise stated. However, resale, repackaging and redistribution through channels such as CD/DVD, websites etc is prohibited. So don’t go passing them off as your own.
