Three Colours White – Krzysztof Kieslowski

By | January 30th, 2019|bullshit, cinema|

What are your top 10 favourite films of all time? One of my favourite collections of cinema was the Three colours trilogy. Julie Delphy was so beautiful in Three Colours White, although I am not sure that she was in the happiest of relationships in that film! Three Colours Blue with Juliette Binoche was also [...]

What were your favourites? Hottest 100 2018

By | January 28th, 2019|holidays, music, radio|

How amazing was the Hottest 100 yesterday? Did you listen to it? I started to listen at around number 67 - which I think was Flight Facilities - Need You {Ft. NIKA}. Actually that was number 66, sorry - my mistake. The highlights of the countdown for me were:63 - BOOGIE - BROCKHAMPTON62 - Killing [...]

The land we stand on – Aboriginal land

By | January 26th, 2019|architecture, bullshit, holidays, parks and gardens|

It is Australia Day, apparently. However, the message has changed from ‘change the date’ to ‘abolish Australia Day all together.’ It really does seem fair enough. 'Sovereignty was never ceded'. 'Indigenous Australians were here for 60,000 years, compared to the 231 years of Colonial Australians.' I dare say multiculturalism is a positive thing and helps [...]

Voting in the Triple J Hottest 100 closes Tuesday

By | January 17th, 2019|music, radio|

Was so happy to turn the radio up on Monday. It was perfect timing because Triple J is currently open for voting in 2018's Hottest 100. I can't wait to hear it. I love listening to it every year, because it always opens my mind to new music that I have not heard before, or [...]

Thando live – Sunset sounds – City of Stonnington

By | January 14th, 2019|friends, interesting people, music, parks and gardens, relationships|

Sunset Sounds was superb yesterday. We were lucky enough to nab a picnic spot, close enough to the stage, so that we could hear and see the band(s) very well. We saw two bands - The Meltdown and Thando. Both were really brilliant! It was especially exciting to hear that Thando and her partner (the [...]

An alien chemical fire – Back to the Start – Monarchy

By | January 14th, 2019|cinema, interesting people, music, physical theatre|

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOZhFf_Jc9g 'Back to the Start' from Monarchy was released on video in the past few days. The first time I watched it, I considered it an insult of sorts to the girl (Celia Sastre). However, on second and subsequent viewings, I became interested in what Ra and Andrew were teaching this, obviously, alien girl about [...]

Back to the Start – January 11th 2019 – Monarchy

By | January 8th, 2019|cinema, music|

I am super excited to spruik the upcoming single release from Monarchy! It looks so incredibly INTERESTING. From what I have seen so far, I love the tonal aspects of the blues they have used in the video clip, and it seems like a very visually interesting piece of work. Not to mention the quality [...]

South coast culture and radio

By | January 8th, 2019|art, holidays, radio|

Do you remember the movie Dirty Dancing? I listened to the soundtrack again a year or so ago. At the time, it reminded me of Turtle. Recently I heard a song from the soundtrack on the local radio station here (2EC). I really love that radio station, I have to say. I think they do [...]

I know what I said, but it is more than words this business. . . Songs of local neighbours and peace and calm...
