HARD NEWS - Lots Of New Stuff!

Hi folks,

Just a quick note to point you to the recent postings on Public Address. Among other things, I've been banging on about war, Chad has been to the King's Arms and Debra has made the week's best post.




I'd rather trust in taniwhas |Jan 30, 2003 11:23
Russell Brown's Hard News

Should a man who can't pronounce "nuclear" be allowed in charge of weapons?

The first part of George W. Bush's State of the Union speech yesterday was an incoherent grab-bag of soundbite announcements. Hydrogen cars! Woo! One characteristic of the initiatives seemed to be that they were addressing problems his administration had created: the hydrogen cars (everything from blowing out Kyoto to kneecapping California's zero-emission laws and lopping half a billion dollars off the budget of ..,

Cabin fever in the big city |Jan 29, 2003 09:54
Jolisa Gracewood in NYC

As I write, the windchill outside is minus fourteen degrees Celsius. I'm all for braving the elements, but when you've got a monstrous head-cold yourself, it's hard to muster up the oomph to get out in subzero weather, even to go and watch chunks of ice floating down the Hudson River in the hope of seeing a polar bear perched on top of one.

Goldenhorse, King's Arms 25 Jan |Jan 27, 2003 06:05

Now playing in the Muse Lounge

Goldenhorse didn't come on stage until well after 10. It's strange being served in an old style pub after 11pm, let alone one filled with kids who are dressed for a nightclub and shuffling politely around the only visible middle-aged drunk. Even the bouncer was polite about shepherding the guy out. Our party turned up for the last two songs from the support band whose harmonies were supplemented by a small girl with a belter,

It's, like, a jazz-yoga-black belt thing |Jan 24, 2003 15:25
Debra Daley's astral plane

So you order a book online, say, "Great Expectations", and you get a message telling you that people who bought that book also bought "Carol Dickens's Guide to Pregnancy", "Bah! Humbug! Making Dickensian Archetypes Work For Your Business" and "Grate Expectations: Fireplace Renovation On A Budget." Same kind of crazy categorising is happening to me in the om-tinkly-crystal world of mind-body modalities. I downloaded a yoga newsletter and now I'm being flooded with information about ...,

Uncool? Never. |Jan 28, 2003 14:46
Rob O'Neill live in Sydney

Tex Perkins and the Dark Horses at the Hopetoun Hotel, Surry Hills, 25 Jan

How long has it been since my last afternoon pub gig? So long I can't remember who it was, where it was or when it was, confirming I guess, Tex Perkins' opening remark: "Welcome to everybody too old and uncool to be at the Big Day Out." ...,
