    I’ve not noticed 4714 to be much crazier than any other year,

    Just the usual Monkey business...

    ’Great!’
    …as in Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’
    and infinite variations on his standard wheedle:
    “I have a great company, great company, we do great things, many, many great things, we’re gonna make jobs, great jobs, many, many great jobs…”

    ‘Great’ also manifests as ‘Tremendous’ and ‘Best’…

    I’m making a pattern with my suggestions

    We are all of us on a quest for the golden meme
    so that the whole is to the greater part
    as that part is to the smaller part
    looking for a certain ratio...
    a proportion that is considered to be
    particularly pleasing to the eye/ear.

    but I digress...

    wailing bongo rings a bell

    ta guys
    We have consensus reality!
    I'll readjust my receptors accordingly...
    …and I note a piece of Letraset© tone screen over the tape deck…
    Remnants, artifacts, of now arcane technologies…

    … also a cracker lyric or band name going begging!
    wailing bongo rings a bell
    (I’m hearing Mother Superior jumped the gun
    to sing along to…)

    ...can’t remember

    Me neither with 100% confidence, but the bits that stack up and resonate still scream Gluepot to my atrophying neurons...
    The proportions, layout/aspect and scale trigger all my gluey Gluepot ganglions:
    the silly wooden cage over the stage; the slats at the back; the slightly raised side strips on both sides; the window set up (with seldom seen views over Auckland); the curtains; the columns; the fire escape...
    ... The floor and ceiling I can not recall with any surety, and a smaller uncarpeted area strikes a muted thud of recollection, but m'lud 'may be leading the witness' and I've seen too many of these rooms, too fast, too long ago. I faintly recall one part was easier to roll stuff on than others - and I can't imagine them not having a reasonable dancefloor in that set up, there was a lot of room still behind the wooded area, narrowing back to the entrance - I remember the side fire/exit well - it came out by the police station or thereabouts at back of pub.
    But pub / hall design was pretty similar all over NZ then-abouts, so who knows - it may just remain a quantum mystery where we know the time (approximately) and can deduce the speed (relative to galactic centre) but not the position in space...
    - the past is a wave with no particle place to be...
