    Fitzroy St bike track repaint - south side

    3 Lanes too far!

    After the monstrous, Street destroying, car munching, 2 lane bike track was installed on the south side of Fitzroy Street, the bike lane on the north side was left to fade, like most other disused roadworks, as if to disappear...or so we thought!

    To my surprise I was alerted to new work to refurbish the north side bike lane as the video above shows. This move can only end up in disaster by encouraging fast paced commuters on the two whe...

  • Auditor General Investigating Vic Forest

    Auditor General Investigating Vic Forest

    I heard Amelia Young from The Wilderness Society on 3RPP last night talking about the current legislation going through the houses of Victorian parliament.

    The legislation bypasses existing rules on areas that can be logged, for example Mount Saint Leonards. The Healesville community protested last year to end logging on this sight due to an endangered species of Lead Beater possum, the Victorian state emblem. A judge ruled at a hearing a year ago that logging was to

    IPhone, Go Pro and Ion Camera must have!
    My friend Marcus invented this thing and it is just brilliant. I see a lot of pro and semi pro photographers with their grouse little cameras at rock and roll gigs, HELLOOOO YOU WILD GIRLS!!! In fact I haven't been able to get monopole out of my mind since I saw Soozie and Chrissie, who was holding huge wand with wee camera atop, at a gig at Hi Fi...maybe it was their leather, but I thought how cool, just a steadying pole. Anyway this Boom Bandi...

    Fitzroy Street Dying

    Do You Prefer to Drive to St Kilda?

    The Street, as a local Melbourne icon has been incrementally destroyed by radical changes to the streetscape that have been implemented over the last 3 years and Fitzroy Street traders are at their wits end. So Wayne 'Mouse' Thompson and I decided to highlight the issues faced by the traders and to inform not only locals but all St Kilda visitors of the fact that Fitzroy Street, in fact the whole of OUR iconic beach suburb of St Kilda, is under a...

  • The Songs of Robert Lloyd at Holy Trinity Church
    by Mick Pacholli

    MelbourneEast Arts Festival

    Robert Lloyd has served the Australian and International Arts/Music world since 1986. Beginning in Adelaide he has travelled the world performing and composing his unique music and songs.

    I have a couple of Robert’s albums but have seen little of him live so it was wonderful to be invited to see his performance at Holy Trinity Church in East Melbourne, a show that is part of the MelbourneEast Arts Festival.

  • Democracy and the financial markets
    by Mick Pacholli

    President of Iceland Olafur Ragnar Grimsson identifies that it is a sane choice by nations to protect their democracies by simply allowing the banks to crash and default the payment of loans due to the IMF and simply rebuild their countries from the ground up.

    After suffering IMF debts that were 10 times their national GDP, when the GFC hit, unlike Australia, Iceland's banks went crashing down in tune with the EU.

    To take this idea of Crowd Sourced Democracy and apply it to Australia isn't as far fetched as we may think.

    We all identify as Australians, whether from the far east, west, north or south, and every bit in the middle of this country. Our geological wealth is being sucked out of the country with relatively poor returns to the national coffers and our economy is tortured by global financial and economic organisations that would
