  • Hard News: Memories of the news,

    as I posted - on your twitter - am typing this with eyes wide open and slightly gulping -

    Opo the dolphin summer - we went up North - and then his death - I was devastated - still so upset when I see references to it

    the feeling never goes

    oops I think I added it in the wrong way - but you get the drift - here is another - I love the continuity of using the park to celebrate music and youth and fun
    and Laneways is all of that

    great picks Jackson – mine do not do any credit as I was not up at front this year.
    However I loved the shade and seating the Morton Bay figs gave as well seeing fabulous clothes and styles along the day.
    Your first comments and the day itself reminded me of when ‘we’ liberated Myers Park then Albert Park in the summer of 69. Evocatively captured by Simon Buis in a booklet I recently uncovered in a clean out.

    see you at Laneways Russell – hopefully near a bar or a tree to share. Think I will start off with Car Seat Headrest and move on from there. I would like to see in person.

    and…and…and.. got quite nostalgic reading about cassette mixtapes. Spent many an arvo doing it – and real love was receiving an especially special crafted one from THAT person.

  • Speaker: Confessions of an Uber driver,

    Sorry but having a P endorsement should be the bottom line. I will be asking that my Uber driver has one when I use them.

    Take a humungous bite out of the Big Apple Russell and look forward to reading all about it when you are back.

  • Hard News: Fix up, young men,

    thanks Russell - I do love events and will continue to go. I will still have to put with some idiots and their negative ageist/sexist comments (such comments are not ok but much better than touching and threats). Most ageist comments on the day were sweet and not meant negatively at all.
    There were older men around us but they didn't get targeted - this is essentially sexist bullying - and as others have said the sentiments are there whether fuelled by stimulants or not. God help their mothers.
    I hope our responses gave them some fleeting moments of reflection when they sobered up yesterday or today.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Jean's Laneway, in reply to Russell Brown,

    oh yes I agree Russell - the vibe was generally and mainly as good as it ever was - I enjoy seeing people enjoying themselves. And yes no security could not have got to these guys - hey even those people 2 or three away would have had no idea what was going on - it is a tight bunch down the front.
    I was astounded that they would pick on older women in such a sexual way - we even asked them if they treated their mother and grandmother this way - and I am sorry to say they didn't look that ashamed. I think they are a product of a political leadership that puts down women and cracks cheap bullying comments at will.
    They were well fuelled and one offered us weed, mda etc so that explained a lot. I just wish it hadn't happened and hope they didn't pick on younger women at their first big exciting day out. I don't care how sorry they were the day after - the fact they still act like that in any state means they have the nastiness inside them.
    I saw another couple of guys at random throughout the day - their first Laneways and they were sailing very very high at East India Youth - laughing, happy, smiley, gorgeous young lads - and still just as bouncy and happy when I last saw them at the end of Grimes - thats the sort of fueling effects I like.
