    What a fantastic find.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: The Next Kids,

    Only just found out this week that George Duke was RIP in August this year. Who?
    Not everyone loves Frank Zappa but I grew up on diet of his work and George Duke was keyboard/vocalist in possibly the best incarnation of Frank's band in the mid-70s. There is no good live version of Inca Roads that I can find on YouTube so this link is just to the audio. Feast yourself on the combined talents in this track and know that I am sad on the one hand but happy at the thought of the jam sessions in heaven now that George and Frank are back together.

    Thank you Danielle, that was magnificent and really hit the spot for me on a frustrated Friday.

    I think I need a Snickers bar to calm me down.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: The Story,

    There is something deeply wrong with me because I looked at and listened to every one of those sound and video tracks, and they just make me sad for the state of music/live entertainment. The entire scene appears to me to be about looking at everyone else and trying to get them to look at you. It reminds me of why I find it harder to enjoy live shows now because there are so many people trying to film themselves and the show on their smartphones so that they can upload their lives to Facebook. Actually taking time to appreciate the artistry of what is being presented is beyond them. Not that there is any great artistry in EDM. I really need to look at why I almost feel angry at seeing the seething masses of people with one arm in the air (the other holding drink or phone) and grinning stupidly at a man with his laptop open - yes, always a man. Obviously, I just don't get it. Sucks for me.

    Modest deposit made, as per my current means. I would happily contribute again to keep you on air Russell. You are a shining light in a sometimes bleak media world.

  • Hard News: Not so insane,

    There is nothing like an alcoholic (Pam) getting hysterical about “harmful drugs”. The new Act is a small step in the right direction but – he said, sounding like broken record – you simply can’t have a rational discussion about drug management unless you include alcohol. And nobody in government is ready to go there yet as witnessed by their substantial back down on the recommendations of the commission last year.

    And a competition to design the best shore-based trebuchet for launching paint bombs at the boats. Yes, I can see it all coming together now. Perhaps a flock of mini-subs prowling the waters ?

    I fear that I have let the country down by not creating many jobs with my proposed regatta - no factories building giant catamarans or chase boats or extended shore crew. I'll have to have a rethink on how to create more opportunities for the workers.
