  1. hey bro… kewl little blog you got going.
    Modified cars hey… well … you have a car your working on?

    lemme know… i always find it interesting. when it comes to cars that is :p

    cheerz bro.

  2. thanks for the compliment on the site michael.

    I have had a few cars, but the car I was doing up before starting the PhD is unfortunately in storage. However, I do have a video of it idling that I may put on youtube or something.

    My everyday car is an ED XR6 Falcon. I believe you may have got the model after that, the EL XR6, in South Africa

  3. Oi do you have a scholarship? How much hecs do people pay to do phds? Do you find revhead wogs obnoxious? Do you think premiers should enforce noise limits on car stereos? Why didnt u go to uni in WA

  4. Hi Glen
    sorry for leaving random messages here, but I’ve been trying to email you and the emails kept bouncing – did you get any of them? Hope you got the copy of collapse. cheers, Robin.

  5. Hi Glen.

    I found this site after my girlfriend told me that a bloke that lectures her called “Glen Fuller” was totally into cars and is completing a phd on the topic. I thought the name rang a bell, and woe and behold, you were actually known as “Dr Hoon” back in the day on fast fours forums.

    Anyway, it would be interesting to see what kind of progress and findings you have made on the topic. Having been in the car “scene” for about 5 years now, and having spent a good whack of my time with those “obnoxious revhead wogs” as Bob put it, it may be refreshing to see someones insight into the situation… as opposed to a cruddy 60 minute, ACA or today tonight spiel.

    Anyway, best of luck. If you need someone to prod a stick at for opinions and thoughts, be my guest.

    Regards,
    Don.

  6. Hi there,

    I work for a TV/Film production company in Sydney and we are looking to hire a modified car for a shoot on either 26th Feb 2007 or March 3rd 2007. The car would not be driven, only stationary during the online commercial we are shooting for an insurance co. We would need the car for about a 4hr hire. Do you know of anyone who has a great car who could send me some pics and make their car available to us for about 4 hrs on either one of those days? We have about $200AUD to offer as a hire fee.

    Cheers, Claud.

  7. Hi Glen.

    Having just picked up issue 1 of Street Machine Magazine and completing my collection (to date – going out to buy the Feb issue at lunch today), I was interested to stumble across your blog. It has been a 10 year slog looking for issue 1, but after a hard fought battle on ebay it is mine, all mine!!!

    I am not sure if there is a market out there for a collection like this, some research in my part to be done I think – not that I am contemplating selling – more for insurance purposes I think.

    Some interesting reading there, and will be sure to check back from time to time to see how it is all going.

    Cheers, David

  8. glen,
    clipped a couple of bits in the wake of the recent hoon death scare and found you here. some interesting stuff and so just wanted to make contact. all the car stuff is fantastic (personally especially loved the dumped xd story as of course i’m an, err, x-xd owner myself). i too was a bit surrised that some of the papers actually seemed to show a bit of sympathy to your argumets. i wrote a book recently (already out of print and trying to get it back in) called Golden Miles and working on getting up tv doco too so it could perhaps be advantageous for both of us to be in contact eh, cheers, clinton walker

  9. It’s great to see someone else making their research process so openly available on-line.

    I’m just in my first year of a PhD at COFA, and have a Blog (which I call a Log), for keeping track of ideas, and for engaging other people in my research.

    Your Blog seems quite beautifully organised.

    I like how your Categories functions as an Index.

    Good luck with the thesis writing!

    Thanks for the interesting site!

    Cheers,

    Lisa

  10. hi Lisa,

    I shall probably be meeting you at the COFA/UNSW new mobilities workshop in december! I checked out your website (and changed the url without the .au as it didn’t seem to work with it). The antartica works are breathtaking, plus i have always had something of a fetish for perplex/lighting combinations. In an alternate universe I think my calling would have been as a light architect. Perhaps I can take it up as a hobby, so I have a hobby again, once the ecstasy and horror of the last 4 months or so have been sufficiently repressed.

    Not sure if my rants of existential angst are really ‘research process’ lol. I ‘spose they are; there is definitely evidence in the movement of my thinking over the three years I have been blogging. Very little professionalism here, however. Being professional is too distracting, and I don’t have the socialised libidinal investments for it.

    ciao

  11. I am Interested in purchasing text link advertisement on your site so if you are interested then feel free to contact me 🙂

  12. Hi glen,
    Its Adrian Lahoud here, we met at the mobilities workshop, meaning to get in contact for a while and see if you were interested in speaking at UTS this semester in an urbanism class…
    cheers

  13. Hi Glen,

    This is completely out of the blue, but Sam Quinn advised me to get in touch: I was wondering if I could throw you some questions about the New School? Hope all is well with you.

    Cheers, Hugh

  14. Hey Glen,

    Just watched the clip on ninemsn and you’ve certainly voiced our opinion re: the true statistics relating to ‘hoons’ and the road toll/injury. Now all we have to do is convince the government!

    Keep up the good work,

  15. Hi Glen,
    Thanks for comming to UTS to talk about your paper. Appreciate you taking the time

  16. Hey Glen,
    Good to see an educated person actually stickng up for their beliefs, rather than being yelled down by the establishment and swayed by a sensationalist commercialised media…

    I may be of assistance with further studies as a case study representing a fair few sides of the arguement….
    Drop me an email if interested…

  17. Are you accepting advertising on your site eventmechanics.net.au?

  18. hey, i really dig your blog. it’s good to finally read a cultural studies/academic blog that’s also Australian! i write film reviews at daveguzman.blogspot.com if you’re interested. although they’re more Zizek than Deleuze so maybe not!
    Dave

  19. interesting..new insights.
    thanks for this new view of things/events
    hope to hear from you ..to be in touch with your lectures and writings
    Regards.

  20. Hi Glen,

    I’m researching event theory in the hope of critically applying it to the re-structure of farming systems in rural Victorian towns (landscape architecture masters project) and I came across your blog via your post on Hélène Frichot’s essay, “Stealing into Deleuze’s Baroque House”.

    I’m also a car enthusiast (had a brief foray into panelbeating before beginning uni) And I’m finding your posts incredibly fascinating. Keep up the great work, looking forward to exploring your blog!
