26.11.11 - DEAR ME! – I wanted to call this post "Gettin' Loose With a Moose", but unfortunately it is a dear. We recently went to a friend's wedding in Kyneton, a small country town about an hours drive out of Melbourne.

Who would have thought that I would stumble across one of the raddest second-hand Vinyl / Book stores I've ever seen! 'Long Story Short' on Piper St has a goldmine of classic aussie 7" vinyl (a few of which I grabbed) plus a heap of hard to find books (rare Anthony Burgess to be precise). One purchase I'm extremely stoked about is the Meanies 7" single "The Reason Why" - released in November 1990, 750 limited edition copies - all hand signed! I've been looking for this little gem to fill out my Meanies collection for a while now! Au-Go-Go records deleted their back catalogue so this stuff is super rare man!

25.11.11 - JASON LEE IS A SCIENTOLOGIST – Yep, it's true. I was just reminiscing on that fact recently whilst visiting the threesixty project exhibit at Melbourne's Fed Square. Getting to see some vintage shots of Lee and his compadres getting up to their skating shennanigans a well as a copy of the cease and desist letter that World Industries received (here) for the "bun halves" logo usage was really cool. Also very cool is this pic.

20.11.11 - GRATE JOB! – Cairns has had a darn good year for live music in 2011. Tonight I had the true pleasure of seeing the Grates play at Brothers Leagues Club. These guys put most other live bands to shame. The amount of energy they push out as a 3-piece band (granted, it's mainly Patience) is amazing! VISIT THEIR SITE

Don't forget to get down to the Blunt Edge Portraiture exhibition on Friday 18th November.

It's Cairns' answer to the Archibald.... that is, if the question was "where can I go and get completely sloshed and look at some paintings?"
