  • Cream of The Crate: Album #117 - The Walker Brothers: The Walker Brothers (Self Titled)

    "[The Sun Aint Gonna Shine] is an all-or-nothing existential ballad, a Spector-style wall of sound fronted by Scott's huge voice." (The Guardian - March 2014)


    Album Cover

    This is album number one hundred and seventeen in the series of retro-reviews of both vinyl and Cd albums in my collection.

    The series is called
    "Cream of The Crate " and each review represents an album that I believe is of significant musical value, either because of it's rarity, because it represents the best of a style or styles of music or because there is something unique about the group or the music.

    This American Life, the podcast giant



    In broad terms a podcast will into one of two categories.

    The first is the rebroadcast of a radio or television program. It goes to air, then's made available as media on demand. Think Hamish & Andy, or Late Night Live on the ABC's Radio National network.
    Often now if it's a prerecorded program, the release is simultaneous.

  • A decent woman? The breastfeeding and visibility debate is nothing new

    A decent woman? The breastfeeding and visibility debate is nothing new

    It’s a predictable tale of controversy in modern public space: a woman or group of women are welcomed to or excluded from a place because they are breastfeeding. The event makes the midday news and ushers in debate about whether breastfeeding is a fact of life or something that should be cloaked away in private.

    Last week, a Sydney cafe owner’s sign welcoming breastfeeding mums in for a free cuppa made its way to headlines and internet viral status. As usual when this issue arises...

  • How does ice use affect families and what can they do?

    How does ice use affect families and what can they do?

    US TV-style ‘interventions’ aren’t the answer.

    Some of the greatest impacts of drug use are on families, but families sometimes feel in a position of little control when it comes to responding. Often they receive mixed messages about what they should do.

    Ice or crystal meth, the strongest form of methamphetamine, has arguably the biggest impact on families of all drugs. It increases the risks of psychosis, violence and impulsivity and decreases emotional control. This...

    "Bo Diddley's Beach Party is shockingly impolite"(Express)

    ". . . we get to the closing Roadrunner, which might be the most unhinged live performance from rock’s first decade." (Recordcollector)

  • Ruminations From My Veranda #25: Surprise, surprise and, wow! Thank goodness for that!

    Surprise, Surprise - and wow! thank goodness for that!
    Hi, I'm Rob Greaves.


    This is the twenty fifth posting in this on-going, if not somewhat ad-hoc column called "Ruminations From My Verandah".

    First things first! Second day of Autumn and I'm out on my verandah in the beautiful hills of Belgrave and it's all quiet except for the birds and the running water of the waterfall that I built that flows water into the pond in the garden. I don't know about

    by Mick Pacholli


    Are you wondering how much I can get for broken cars?


    Do you have a broken car taking up space in your garage? Are you ready to upgrade to a new vehicle and get rid of your old and unwanted one?

  • Re: Should our troops be re engaged in Iraq?
    by Isobel Blackthorn
    Iraqi Civil War



    As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

    What do you think?
    I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90...
