Jesus - the true story



I suspect this is the most truthful ending to THAT story of HIM... (oh dear, here comes that lightening bolt!). Javier Prato (the filmmaker) is still alive too - there's something in that...

and isn't it nice to hear Gloria Gaynor's version of this song song NOT lip synced by a drag queen again and again and... again!

45s in the mail

in the post this week: Treats!
in great nick - sometimes records made in the 1980s are in worse condition than ones I find from the 1960s and I reckon I know because as I recall some of the 1980s and the condition I was in... ok, enough - this be about me getting treats in the post

A Canadian band with a big hit: Martha and the Muffins' Echo Beach. damn I love this song!

renovation


(above: a visit to Paddington, Sydney)

renovation madness
People who complain about live music and a handful of people chatting on a footpath after a gig in the inner west are usually the renovators from hell - like the guy 2 doors down who had his large tree removed on a Sunday morning... last Saturday morning, he had a bloody great cement truck that ran it's mixer for over an hour...
it's been almost a year in our street of non-stop renovations and building for 6 days a week - now and then, hey, while I'm complaining, Sundays also include using a bobcat, spray painting and some digging...
At the moment, yes, I know it's a weekday, some guy is banging a large crow bar into cement next door. i wonder if it's the same person who used a silly amount of water to hose out the rubbish bins earlier when it was raining...

A bit of an exhibition - 5 Years as a Rock Moll







Exhibition is go - despite the heat I got the photos up (123 in total)on time and Madam Squeeze played & then Baby Machine - 3 rock musicians who'd trekked up from Wollongong AND provided a heap of food, played nice an loud.
this weekend has a weather forecast in the hideously hot range so that will be me in the corner, a puddle of my former self, gallery sitting.

A visit to the artists rooms





was allowed in to the top floor where some Sydney artists are currently in residence... snuck a couple of quick photos - I regret my politeness in Sept 2000 when walking through the artist squat with walls covered in murals at Tacheles, Berlin where a sign said not to photograph out of respect - so I didn't and those walls are now gone.

these walls are way different than those in Berlin and will likely be added to and eventually painted over...
