Fact: hippies dance the same everywhere in the world. Mmmm, hippies.

Have spent most of the day at the Sydney manifestation of earthdance which was very cool; I spent a lot of time lying in the sun reading just enjoying the atmosphere but have also harvested what I hope will be a fine crop of leads for getting involved in environmental/political stuff here. So, a goth festival within walking distance our first weekend, an eco-festival our second: I'm assuming this can't last . . ?

been up to cool stuff during the week too: went to see Fourplay (a string quartet that do Radiohead, Metallica, Strokes etc. covers as well as their own stuff) with akte and hysteria74 (who have been unreasonably nice to us since we got here) which, surprisingly, was the most culturally dislocated I've felt- although I'm assured that it was an atypical gig-going experience even for here. Quite liking the difference in when they get films here and caught C.R.A.Z.Y. at the Dendy (Newtown's Ritzyish cinema) which I'd missed in the UK & really liked, best film I've seen in ages. (Ususal caveats abut my taste in *anything* apply before anyone rushes out to see it on the basis of this . . .)

Nice to see Carter in your current music :) They still have plenty o' fans here in Oz, and Les visits quite often...
Peter (from FourPlay)
Carter are mighty :-) I'll have to keep an eye out for him coming over!

oh, and your posters had the honour of being the first decoration in our currently very, er, minimalist flat ;-)
Ooh, nice one! They're quite pretty posters methinks. We are indeed honoured!
It really was the most unusual atmosphere for a gig. House lights on? People sitting on the floor? TALKING throughout? Very odd...

We went to see the Dresden Dolls on saturday night, aside from the obvious fact that they are a completely different style of music, the entire atmosphere was completely different. Lights off! People standing! People actually listening and not talking! Just like how it should be :)

Speaking of gigs, if your at all interested, Mia Dyson ( or ) and Sarah McLeod ( ) are playing at Sydney University this thursday - Lisa & I will be heading over. It's stupidly cheap, at only $11! I'll be booking tix tomorrow night, let me know if either of you are interested :) Sydney Uni is just near Central/Broadway :)
we might be going to see the film that's on at Queerdoc that night so probably best not to get us tix, will try & grab some if we turn out not to!
