Musician, producer and fledgling blogger. I like writing about the world around me including the people I meet and the places I visit. I also like writing about things that are cool and things that piss me off. This a place where I vent about stuff. Opinions are entirely my own and feel free to agree or disagree. Cheers :)

The Musician and the Audience.. A Special Relationship.

0
This is a shout out to all of my friends in the music and wider arts industry who’ve also had their lives turned upside down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The sad irony is that while so many artists are out of work, it’s the arts keeping people sane through these scary and challenging times… Rock on! I...

THE COVIDSAFE APP IF YOU’VE GOT NOTHING TO HIDE…..

0
First off, I think the concept behind CovidSafe app has merit and I totally get people’s reasoning for choosing to download it. I won’t be downloading the app yet. I don’t think there’s anything sinister with the app. We have enough personal tracking and privacy invasions our phones and cars. It’s the government’s inability to be transparent about it that has...

THE IDEOLOGY BEHIND HERD IMMUNITY

the ideology behind herd immunity
When COVID-19 hit Australia, it took a while for our federal government to wake up and shut down public gatherings and close our borders. In fact, while state leaders closed down their jurisdictions, the Prime Minister was still encouraging people to go to the footy, carry on as normal, nothing to see here. When he finally caught up, he told...

ANTI-ISLAMIC SENTIMENT IN AUSTRALIA IS SO HYPOCRITICAL

anti-islamic sentiment in australia is so hypocritical
Are you one of those people who believe Islam should be banned in Australia or protest against Halal Certification on products? Then you should read this. I recently read an article about a South Australian Dairy Company that pulled its Halal Certification because of a social media backlash from anti-Halal protesters. As a result, they lost a $50,000 supply contract with...

JOHN HOWARD SAYS WHOOPS TO A WAR CRIME

john howard says whoops to a war crime
In an interview on Seven’s Sunday Night, John Howard says he was “embarrassed” to decide to go to war in Iraq based on wrong intelligence. Yes, he said, “embarrassed”. 600,000 people were killed in that war. He attacked and persecuted whistleblowers who kept telling the US, UK and Australian governments the intelligence was wrong or false. Bush, Blair and Howard...

SANITISATION OF WAR BREEDS A LACK OF COMPASSION

sanitisation of war breeds a lack of compassion
I was only in primary school in the late 1960s but I have vivid memories of hearing and watching news reports on the Vietnam War on radio and TV. We would tune into the news at half past six and watch front line footage from war correspondents embedded with Australian or American platoons out in the field with...

TONY ABBOTT’S BROKEN PROMISES …. LEST WE FORGET!

tony abbott’s broken promises …. lest we forget!
Tomorrow is ANZAC Day. Tomorrow we will see war veterans, many of whom are in the very senior years marching to remember and commemorate the sacrifices our troops have made in the service of our country. Many of those men and women are too frail to walk but they will be there right around the country, rain hail or...

THANK YOU KEVIN RUDD

thank you kevin rudd
Resigning as ALP leader is too good for Kevin Rudd. I think an appropriate penance for him would be to serve for another three years as leader opposite the most unpopular Prime Minister this country has ever elected. Thanks Kevin. You couldn’t let it go could you. You couldn’t accept the umpires decision back in 2009 when your party saw...

COMMERCIAL RADIO IS MUSICALLY REDUNDANT

commercial radio is musically redundant
I was having lunch with a dear friend of mine recently. She is also a musician but spends most of her time writing articles for music websites in Australia and abroad. We were having a long overdue catch up. We talked about life, the kids and then went on to music. As musicians do. We got on to talking about...

SAME SEX MARRIAGE… WHY ARE WE EVEN DISCUSSING IT?

same sex marriage… why are we even discussing it?
I am really getting sick and tired of people making an issue of same sex marriage. I mean really? What the hell is wrong with some people? Here’s the deal. If two people love each other and they really want to get married then let them. I have been married to my darling wife a long time. My darling wife...
