HARD NEWS 06/03/02 - Blog Crazy!

Hi folks,

Lots to read this week if you haven't visited Public Address - and even if you have, I've made a couple of interesting updates to the Bosnian post in Hard News.

Yes, the Faith thing is still coming - I'm getting bogged down in research ...




The Bosnian connection |Mar 05, 2003 10:46
Russell Brown's Hard News

My occasional correspondent Neil Morrison has been back in touch: "I'm not sure why you have adopted the Listener's penchant for disparaging 'pro-war lefties," he says. "It seems that the intolerance bug is spreading. I don't see how you can possible allege that pro-war lefties 'in particular' pay no attention to issues of international law. It is exactly they who, ever since US intervention in Bosnia, have made an attempt to look at the moral and ... ",

Now playing in the Muse Lounge

If you get in quick you can win a signed copy of my new novel. Scarlett Thomas liked it. A gal, a writer and a Scot - an endearing hat trick - she mistrusts chick lit and runs a fine author site . Apart from that I've still been avoiding the local reviews. I lost about six weeks doing publicity for the new book - it messes with your head ...,


Duct tape'll fix it... |Mar 03, 2003 16:48
Jolisa Gracewood in NYC

Living in New York is, paradoxically, like living in a tiny village. You can walk pretty much anywhere, and pretty much everything you need is within walking distance. For a 16 month old freshly qualified perambulator who much prefers "wokking" to being strapped into his stroller, this quasi-village life is a bonus: it's three blocks from home to the supermarket, and super-toddler walks all the way. I get disapproving glances from those Manhattanites who ...,


Peeing from the shoulders of giants |Mar 02, 2003 20:33
Damian Christie - Cracker With Attitude

As promised before I left for Australia, here's the complete Q&A of an interview I did a couple of months back with US author William Gibson shortly before the release of his latest novel, Pattern Recognition . For those who know who Gibson is, great, but for those who don't, he's written about 8 books, the most famous is probably his first, Neuromancer , in which he basically predicts the advent of the Net. Obviously the Net ...,


Something's gotta give --- |Mar 02, 2003 16:49
Debra Daley's astral plane

It's a while since I was here and that's because in the last fortnight I haven't been able to turn a page in my diary without having a big bunch of stuff to deal with. I'm thinking that the stress-y fall-out I have been experiencing might have something to do with my writing these posts about yoga and the metaphysical resonances of my little tealight and incense world. Did you see that movie Fight Club? ...,

Rob O'Neill live in Sydney

We wandered out on Saturday to get the Girlie a desk. Years 11 and 12, as they call sixth and seventh form over here, are pretty important and she?s got a lot of work to do heading into her HSC (Higher School Certificate)...,

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren.
