    ON AGEING



    I never put a foot wrong
    Except this time I did
    And I was splayed for all to see
    As I went into a skid.

  • REVENGE IS NOT SO SWEET

    REVENGE IS NOT SO SWEET



    The Old Testament was into revenge. All that eye for an eye stuff. As it is the basis of three major religions, this can be a bit of a worry. Lucky for us, a number of great thinkers, from all different cultures and centuries, such as Confucius, Mahatma Ghandi, Jesus, Victor Hugo and Blanche Murphy, had some other ideas on the subject, like ‘if you want revenge, dig two graves,’ and ‘an eye for an eye and the whole world ends up blind.’

  • (TRYING TO) INTERVIEW BOB DYLAN

    (TRYING TO) INTERVIEW BOB DYLAN

    I've interviewed Bob Dylan twice - this encounter in 1986 and again in 1992. I found the original typed piece the other day and this is pretty much as it was written before being widely circulated in Australia and appearing as a cover story in BAM magazine in America. Dylan apparently disliked two things about the published piece - my comment that he has a weak handshake (he does) and that I mentioned him phoning his children, something I heard he bawled Michael Gudinski out for telling me....

  • Tanzer Vinyl EP Launch

    Tanzer Vinyl EP Launch



    Tanzer is the dark and dazzling solo project for Melbourne-based musician and composer Hayley Foster. Named for her maternal German family (and not a European dancing career), Tanzer spins tales of OTT love affairs and fabulous heartbreak with a haughty glare and a swelling, thumping soundscape. Equal parts dreamy, stark and seductive, Tanzer conjures 60s film soundtracks, new-wave divas and otherworldly exotica – but ultimately lives in a genre all her own.

    Hayley, what...

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 187 - Ricky Nelson: All My Best

    "Rick Nelson was there at the beginning of the modern rock era." (Steve Horowitz -Popmatters - 2012)
    "Musicians as diverse as Eric Andersen and John Fogerty, and even some of his own heroes, including Carl Perkins and Scotty Moore, admired and respected Nelson." (The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll)
    "
    I remember him not just as a nostalgic rock singer but as a lively and talented artist who loved what he did and did what he loved."
    (This review)



    This is album review number One Hundred and Eighty Seven in the series of retro-reviews of both vinyl and CD albums from my collection.

  • Re: Should our troops be re engaged in Iraq?
    by Isobel Blackthorn
    Iraqi Civil War



    As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

    What do you think?
    I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90...

  • Do You know that the kitchen is the Biggest Hidden Source of Contamination?
    by Mick Pacholli



    The kitchen is the heart of a house where you feel safe to sit and eat. But to your surprise, today, we will tell you that the kitchen is the biggest source of bacterial contamination. Amid a global pandemic taking care of kitchen hygiene to prevent any contamination from the food brought from outside is also imperative. Research has shown that the moist and humid temperature of the kitchen is favourable for microorganisms to grow and reproduce. Therefore, taking preventive...

  • Cassandra by Kathryn Gossow
    by Isobel Blackthorn



    Kathryn Gossow is a masterful storyteller who displays great insight and sensitivity in her handling of difficult themes. The result, her debut novel Cassandra, is an extraordinary and engaging coming of age tale.


    On a remote farm in Queensland, Cassie Shultz feels useless. Her perfect brother Alex has an uncanny ability to predict the weather, and the fortunes of the entire family hinge upon his forecasts. However, her own gift for prophecy remains frustratingly...
