Really looking forward to These Machines Cut Razor Wire next Saturday! Justin, Danny boy and I are the house rhythm section for the show, good excuse to learn new songs and sing with your friends!
Check out These Machines Cut Razor Wire by Les Thomas. Love this track, aside from the lyrics the fiddle (Ali Ferrier), mandolin and dobro (Jeff Lang) get me every time.
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.
