  • Hard News: Protecting privilege in Epsom,

    Seymour’s nonsense doesn’t reflect the whole electorate at all. My homes of nigh on 20 years fall within the boundaries and we’ve had former institutional patients accomodation, alcohol and drug recovery houses and paitients, admittedly some more disturbing to residents than others, but without harm. Currently hostel accommodation partying is more disturbing and I can certainly cope with backpackers enjoyment. Accepting difference seems ACT’s issue.

  • Hard News: Music: Places to Play,

    I love our music sites, Audioculture and Russell’s Friday Music post in particular and as a case in point I note how PA already covered these Hall of Fame candidates (h/t Jezebel.com*):

    Sister-Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock ‘n’ Roll
    I believe I owe @dimsie tweet thanks for this lesson:

    What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Running Up That Hill: The Kate Bush Story

    Occasional mentions of the Eurythmics.

    And more than I could list of Chaka Khan

    Oh, and there’s Judas Priest and Radiohead too. I’m sure someone will have links for those…

    * Selection/voting doginess noted in article and comments but at least it’s an excuse for some great performances, like only a blinding Prince solo, which I suspect is more the point. If only this years’ were on stage.

  • Up Front: What's the Big Idea?,

    there’ll be another bit of utter crazy along in a minute,

    usually immediately after a policy announcement, derailing the conversation from a significant issue to one guy's brainfart.

    Bathos indeed.

    Does anyone have John Clarke' s 'Hide and Seeky Bird' off Fane Flaws children's album please? Such brevity; such wit; so appropriate for him to deliver.
