30 Minutes with… Wasps and Australia back Kurtley Beale

first_imgWasps’ Kurtley Beale talks Beyonce, bugbears and bum cheeks! So Kurtley, who are the jokers at Wasps?There are a few. Christian Wade – he’s always playing practical jokes. And James Haskell. Those two guys play jokes on me. There’s always good energy around the group; we’re always having a laugh and a giggle with the whole squad.How have you settled in?I’m trying to embrace English culture. I like a nice Sunday roast and we’re trying to make it a ritual. I’m trying to embrace the weather as well, but that’s a hard one to crack!I’m really enjoying tea and scones at the moment too. I might treat myself once a week, otherwise I’ll find myself in the front row!You’re going back to Australia at the end of the season but what are you missing most?My family. I’ve got my partner, Maddi, over here with me now so that’s great. And with social media, FaceTime and Skype, they’re not too far away.Cheeky shot: Drew Mitchell reveals his tattoo against Italy. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?The Wallabies were playing Italy in Florence and Drew Mitchell was running the ball back. I was next to him in case he made a half-break. He was tackled and the Italy player pulled his pants down. Drew was still running and little did I know he had a tattoo on one of his cheeks of paper, scissors, rock! In the end his pants were almost down to his knees so he had to cover himself.I didn’t know he had that tattoo but a lot of us knew about it after the game! Apparently he lost a bet with mates on a trip away.Do you have a nickname?Just my initials – KB.Good buzz: Wasps’ Willie le Roux, James Haskell, Kurtley Beale and Christian Wade. Photo: Getty ImagesIf you could be any of your team-mates, who would you be?I’d say Christian Wade. He’s cool and has such a great attitude to life. He’s got a great energy and it’s lovely that he’s always positive. That’s the off-field stuff. He’s also an amazing athlete with amazing feet.Do you have any phobias? TAGS: Wasps I don’t like lizards or any reptiles at all. I’ve got a massive fear of snakes. And scary movies. I can’t deal with horror movies. I’m a jumpy person – if someone’s around the corner and jumps out at me, I’ll yell and scream! Adam Ashley-Cooper has always done it to me. Nathan Hughes is that person here – he’s got me a few times.And what about bugbears?I like to be positive in all things – but I hate losing. It annoys me. If I’ve had a poor game it could take me three or four days to get over it. If it was a tough game but I know we played alright and the opposition were too good, it would probably take a day to get over it.Is this just in rugby?Golf, table tennis, shooting hoops – everything I compete for I want to win. I back myself to win, even if it’s cards on the bus. I compete for everything.Right notes: Beyonce with two of her many Grammy awards. Photo: Getty ImagesWho would be your three dream dinner party guests?I have to say Maddi. I’d love a pop star, someone like Beyoncé – she can sing. And a comedian – Will Ferrell.Any superstitions?I must have my mouthguard. It has the Australian indigenous flag printed on it and if I don’t have it I don’t feel quite right.If you could have one superpower, what would it be?I’d love to fly. I could see the world and it would be easy to get back to Australia. I think that would be awesome.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I grew up in West Sydney, an area where there are a lot of underprivileged kids. They’re not in the best position to achieve their dreams, so I’d like to open an academy to allow kids to do that. The Kurtley Beale Sports Academy – I’d love to do that.This article originally appeared in the May 2017 issue of Rugby World. For the latest subscription offers, click here.

The design grew from the client’s desire to ‘re-set’ each time he returned from work. He would arrive by car straight from the airport, without the time to adequately slot back into society. Our client was a single FIFO worker at the start of the project, who wanted a laid-back and robust sanctuary back home. He would arrive by car from the airport after a month off-shore and wanted the house to be instrumental in readjusting his mindset back into an on-shore, city-based existence for the ensuing month. The home needed to allow a gradual adjustment. Nothing too abrupt. Connection with Fremantle, but also plenty of privacy and dimly lit space to enjoy solitude. A place that was gentle on the senses, yet also engaging. Together with the client, we devised an entrance sequence to perform the initial reset.Save this picture!© Bo WongSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bo WongFrom the garage, entry is via a back gate, which provides access to a protected porch with lush potted vegetation. From here a solid front door with a high light window. Pass through this into a narrow space with brick floor and walls, dark stained plywood cabinetry and a pond visible through a frameless glass door. A compressive and contemplative space. A right turn leads into a circular space with a low ceiling: the library, which doubles as circulation nexus. From here go straight ahead into the living room; turn right for the spiral stairwell; left for the kitchen; or hook right for the toilet. A place to re-orientate and also to remember. The final stop before passing through deep thresholds to parts of the house where the local living can begin.Save this picture!© Bo WongThe kitchen, still dimly lit and cross-ventilated through louvers from the pond, is a galley and becomes a built-in dining booth at the northern end. The dining room shares a single story volume with the kitchen, which gives way to a double height volume passing East towards the living room. The living room is where the solitude of the ground floor encounters the cheer of a brighter and more outward looking the first floor, via a double height volume. This transition is less gradual in the spiral staircase, where black-stained treads switch to lime-washed ones just below the first-floor landing. Lime-washed timbers and white walls predominate on the first floor, which is brightened by many windows and a double-glazed skylight over the corridor.Save this picture!© Bo WongDoors are frameless and skirting boards integrated. The focus is downwards and outwards. To the North, a full-width operable lattice screen provides sun protection and privacy for both levels of the house. The screen is made of Hardie Lattice, an economical off-the-shelf product appropriated to painted Duragal frames on simple pin hinges and rod stays. They, along with abundant quantities of face brick, painted concrete floors, integrated glazed brick splashbacks and plywood lend the home a rudimentary and relaxed feel. The client wanted to kick off his shoes, walk in off the beach, have his friends over without worrying too much. The surfaces have been designed with this in mind, as robust and hardy finishes.Save this picture!© Bo WongSave this picture!Section 2Save this picture!© Bo WongProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse on the Great Wall / MDDM STUDIOSelected ProjectsHouse of Would / EliiSelected Projects Share “COPY” Manufacturers: James Hardie Australia, Austral Bricks, Bluescope, James Hardie, Nemetschek, Paperock, Austral Plywood Area:  240 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Blinco Street House / Philip Stejskal Architecture Photographs:  Bo Wong Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918134/blinco-street-house-philip-stejskal-architecture Clipboard CopyAbout this officePhilip Stejskal ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFremantleAustraliaPublished on June 02, 2019Cite: “Blinco Street House / Philip Stejskal Architecture” 02 Jun 2019.

The Magpie Salute Tears Up New York City [Photos/Full Video]

first_imgLoad remaining images Since announcing the end of the Black Crowes almost exactly two years ago, Rich Robinson has been flying high. Releasing a new album, filling in on guitar for Bad Company, and touring with the eponymous Rich Robinson Band kept him busy for the first year before he decided to reunite with one-time Crowes guitarist Marc Ford to form The Magpie Salute. A sprawling 10-member band that also includes ex-Crowes bassist Sven Pipien along with Rich Robinson Band drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua, the Magpies held their coming-out party in New York this past January before embarking on a European tour to fine-tune their stagecraft. Upon returning to the U.S., they launched a 60-show tour that began in July and culminated in New York, November 15 and 16, at Irving Plaza.JJ Grey & Mofro, North Mississippi Osborne, And The Magpie Salute Take Over Red Rocks [Photos]With three guitarists, the Magpies play loud and hard, drawing on their Black Crowes ancestry as well as the Crowes’ tradition of well-chosen covers. Their opening night at Irving Plaza kicked things off with a string of Crowes standards—“Sting Me”, “Greasy Grass River”, and “Exit”—before settling into “Omission” from The Magpie Salute’s debut album. There were covers of Gram Parsons (“She”) and the Flying Burrito Brothers (“Christine’s Tune” and “Hot Burrito #2”). The band also worked in tunes from the solo albums of Robinson and Ford before getting back to familiar territory with more Crowes: “Title Song”, “Don’t Wake Me,” “Horsehead”, and “Sometimes Salvation.”The Magpie Salute Releases New Music Video For “Omission”It’s rare for a band as guitar-driven as the Magpie Salute to include a full complement of vocalists to deliver a more balanced sound, but John Hogg adds an energetic reggae influence supported by a trio of backup singers (Charity White, Adrien Reju, and Katrine Ottosen). On a sad note, original Magpie keyboardist Eddie Harsch, another Crowes alum, passed away shortly after the release of the Magpie album and has been replaced by Michael Bellar.Rich Robinson Reunites Black Crowes Members For Debut Of The Magpie Salute [Watch]The younger of the Robinson brothers, Rich was at times overshadowed by frontman Chris but now seems comfortable in a lead role with the Magpie Salute. Rich is a first-rate guitarist who has surrounded himself with a talented entourage to build upon the legacy of the Black Crowes and break new ground. The band will be releasing a live album with highlights from their year-long tour before getting back into the studio and out on the road to keep the momentum going.You can check out photos from The Magpie Salute’s performance on November 15th at Irving Plaza below, courtesy of the author.Watch full video of The Magpie Salute’s 11/15 Irving Plaza show below, via taper Steve Hagar:Watch full video of The Magpie Salute’s 11/16 Irving Plaza show below, via taper Steve Hagar: The Magpie Salute | Irving Plaza | New York, NY | 11/15/2017 | Photo: Lou Montesanocenter_img Photo: Lou Montesanolast_img read more
