As someone who's grown up in a household passionate about current affairs in this country and aboard I've been used to the doom and gloom aspects of trying to stay informed since a young age. However, the last few months of local politics/events has gotten me down, and, like many others I find myself tempted to switch off to it all because I'm finding it.... depressing. I always think it low to whinge about the news if your not actively trying to make a difference to the current state of things, and there's my contradiction. I'm having a good whinge (again). Low I know. HA!
The dredging of area inside the Great Barrier Reef in preparation for increased capacity of the Gladstone port, everything to do with Asylum Seekers/Manus Island and most of all the murder of Luke Batty in Melbourne are on my top of my "What's Wrong With The World" list.
So, I thought I'd put together a bunch of my favourite meems and cartoons from the past couple of months. Nothing like a bit of light entertainment.
Wednesdays at The Retreat Hotel front bar next month! Got some super lovely friends supporting me throughout the month! Daz Grey, Brett Harris (The Good Ship), Little Wise, Ladies of The Shotgun Wedding and DAN AND AMY.
Joining me on stage will be Justin Bernasconi on electric guitar, Daniel Hobson on bass, and very special guest Justin Olsson on drum kit.
