The Week in Dot Points

*rumors about next weeks Australian Federal Budget were abundant – in particular the axing of the 30% Private health insurance rebate, superannuation contributions and paid paternity leave

*Malcolm Turnbull accused Kevin Rudd of being “hot headed” after a supposed incident over not having a hair dryer on his last trip to Afghanistan. Speaking of Turnbull, he announced rather pigishly that He and the Liberals will be ready whenever the Labor party are for the election. All getting rather childish in Canberra by the sounds of it, I expected him to be poking his tongue out after he said it as well.

*Death total from Swine Flu currently stands as being under 200, whilst the world wide hysteria kicks into overload and everyone uses alcohol hand sanitizer like Niles Crane from Frasier.

*Everyone learned that those in the Congo Army believe that sodomising Pygmies give supernatural powers

*In Australia the gender test for pregnant couples has been made available – which has struck fear into those hate filled right to lifers (who will gladly kill you if you ever mention the “A” word around them) saying that couples who find out the gender of their unborn child at 8 weeks will lead to more abortions.

*In Tasmania, it was found out that opposition leader Will Hodgman spent $13000 on his website – gee and I spend nothing for mine, he’s really being ripped off

And it’s time…

May 4, 2009 at 3:41 am (awesome pile, music, tasmania) (, , , )

to cross something off the “Awesome things that I wish would happen” list On the 14th of March 2009, and I had the exciting pleasure of watching Amanda Palmer in concert IN TASMANIA!

It’s was absolutely fucking brilliant.

She is a brilliant show woman and I stood there for the length of the show in absolute awe of her.

After the show I got to meet her and it almost turned into a Wayne’s World moment of me going “I’m not worthy!”

She said during the concert, she would hopefully be back in December.

AWESOME!

and now for your viewing pleasure, some photos

img_0670Also found in the same area about 50 meters away

img_0650This stencil art was found in one of the laneways that comes from the Quadrant Mall

and finally

img_0655up the same lane.

There is something rather entrancing about the final one, don’t you agree?

More images will be taken in the following weeks before the Launceston City Council does its “street beautification project” but i think i prefer this sort of art on our walls
