Going Down Swinging in Hepburn

Going Down Swinging is coming to a Hepburn Springs near you in early August, and I’m pretty well stoked to be part of the bill.

Celebrating the loveliness that is GDS28 will be yours truly and some fellow GDS publishees, namely David Thrussell (our second regional literary teamup!) and Fraser McKay, performing pieces especially commissioned by GDS, in their inaugural performances.

WIW Flyer

Also treading the boards will be the talented wordsmiths berni m janssen, Maria Zajkowski and Yana Alana, and musicians Tom Logan and Dave Marshall. All for five Australian dollars (or fifteen if you buy a copy of GDS28 on the door). So it’s a pretty safe bet, as far as literary afternoons go.

Full details on the pictured flyer above (clicky for biggy), which boasts a reproduction of the snazzy and oft-commented-upon cover of GDS 28.

So now you finally have that non-mineral-water-related reason to head over to Hepburn Springs that you’ve been waiting for. You’re welcome.

Quelle Grammage!
only a fan of 2/3s of the folk in this pic but mesmerised by the story @angustrumble relates below it. . . . I watched last evening’s general election coverage (ABC, natch) in the company of a high Commonwealth official, among others in an undisclosed location, whose name, it soon emerged, may not appear on the electoral roll for reasons of national security. I confess that gave me a bit of a thrill. Canberra: Bless! However, it was also fascinating, extraordinary, in due course to witness that person’s several mobile phones evidently going bonkers, and the measured plans, contingencies, forecasts, blue books of an entire federal bureaucracy duly (one presumed) shredded, turned upside down, just like that. Nothing at all was said, I should emphasise. One simply observed the body language, which was moderately graphic. Whichever way you look at it, this has been an astounding personal victory for Prime Minister Scott Morrison. He believes in miracles, the sexy thing. Pre-polling methodologies in this country, meanwhile, have quite obviously met with serial unforced error on a colossal, epic scale. Who would ever pay them good money again? On my way home, I collided with the (ex-)campaign manager of one of the independent ACT Senate candidates who was alone, drunk and in despair. The campaign manager, that is, not the candidate. This was at about half past eleven on the corner of Jardine and Eyre Streets in Kingston, right next to the rubbish tin, you know, the rectangular green one. He told me he wanted to burn everything down, which was worrying enough, but then he suddenly hurled his mobile phone into the gutter—smashed it to bits—and staggered off into the night. I found myself wondering: Who would touch politics with a barge pole? I should add that this frightening encounter left me, literally, picking up his bits and bobs, then dutifully popping them in the bin. Responsible, me. Back home, I had a cuppa and played patience. I’m not kidding. . . . #Repost @angustrumble with @make_repost
A chance op shop encounter with this Death Liger Lion of Chaos duelmasters card case has done NOTHING to help my attempts to not buy one of this sucker’s namesake toys on ebay. #duelmasters #deathliger #deathligerlionofchaos #metalasfuck #toys

They come up after rain. I often wonder how they feel lying under the ground at right angles to their purpose. #chewton #railspike
