  • Do you get chain mail?

    Do you get chain mail?

    What to publish?

    Are chain mail emails a window into peoples souls in this soulless ethernet?

    Over the years mates have sent me volumes of jokes and pics and other hilarious stuff, generally I have thought they were very funny bastards, some gems, a few of which were shared on bowls blogs.

    Whilst I was writing for my sisters in the Metro News, I started to receive a darker type of email chain letter, some barely comprehensible but others full tilt anti Muslim and other conspiracy theorists, whilst the girls went full tilt on Aboriginal, Palestinian and women's issues.

    Being Far Middle, this didn't sit well with me, being the multicultural nation we are now, no going back...

    Merry Happies, All!!!

    Toorak Times writers and editors would like to thank all those that have found our virtual newspaper/broadcast venue entertaining enough to keep coming back.

    I have had some very loyal contributors that have allowed me to use their material from day one and a couple of other legends that have battled on through my crazy idea of building the site as a 'Reality Build' - warts and all.

    I feel the build is almost complete, we will be shuffling sections and subjects so that it ...

    50% Local Vote 'Against' is Misleading
    It appears that information being used to try and stop a much wanted McDonalds outlet in Upwey is being skewed to make people believe that a survey taken was answered with a local response of 50% of the local population voting yes and the other half voting no. It appears the YES vote is a real indication of the vote but the NO vote is formed from votes all over Australia...which on the face of it seems like the negative are pushing a fra...

    Gen X, why are you here? We didn't MEAN to breed you!
    Generation X encompasses the 4.4 million Australians born between 1965 and 1979, in the Australian context. Due to the concerns with disease , mainly, Australians had a high uptake of pregnancy prevention, No Means No etc, and other disincentives with local Baby Boomers, Gen X is the smallest ever generation, both before and after representing 21% of the population. So being in their 30’s and early...

    Shameful Intervention Continuation

    It is an absolute disgrace that the Australian Government and the cowards that are helping to ruin this country have decided under Stronger Futures legislation to extend the interference of The Intervention in the lives of our indigenous citizens for another 10 years. Despite the Green's attempts to take out the worst parts of this legislation a virtually empty Senate chamber saw Labor and Liberal band together to ram this ruinous legislation through in the dead of night. Aboriginal leaders a...

    US Economy Drives Cult Missionaries to Australia

    There are missionary teams of a group called Avatar, or Stars-Edge, Inc., wooing gullible locals into their pay your way to clarity cult. Licensed Avatar Masters are the 'preachers' of this Scientology break away. The originator of the Avatar organisation, Harry Palmer, once led a US Church of Scientology along with his partner and paid regular tithes to L.Ron Hubbard as his group slowly shifted away from the core religion, eventually stopping all tithes to the Church of Scientol...

  • 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
