It's been an interesting few days where the myth of an "Egalitarian Australia" has been well and truly shown to be just that: a myth.
More later in Wombat Droppings.
A new book and some more of the last studio shoot.
Ballet Theatre Australia's last performance has just been finished and published and a preview can be seen here ...
Unusually, I had to almost force myself to do the post-process on these shots and was pleasantly surprised at the books outcome.
Alec Bell, an Englishman commented on deviant-art on one of the "Gille's" studio images with this delightful Hai-ku:
Standing immobile as the dance whirls around him,
He Dances stillness.
He really caught the intention of the shot.
I hope you who are viewing also enjoy the following.....
Wombat Droppings or Low-Down Politics in Oz
Scott “Drone” Morrison, he of brutal cruelty to refugees, lying and dissimulation to the nation and obnoxious bullying of the press and appalling treatment of Minh Duong made this as his maiden speech in Parliament, 2008: "From my faith I derive the values of loving kindness, justice and righteousness, to act with compassion and kindness, acknowledging our common humanity and to consider the welfare of others; to fight for a fair go for everyone to fulfil their human potential and to remove whatever unjust obstacles stand in their way … Desmond Tutu put it this way: 'We expect Christians … to stand up for the truth, to stand up for justice, to stand on the side of the poor and the hungry, the homeless and the naked, and when that happens, then Christians will be trustworthy believable witnesses.' These are my principles."
Hmmmm... must have walked backward on the road from Damascus. What a hypocrite!
The lowest levels I expected of this Murdoch mandated rabble has been well and truly exceeded within the first six months of their tenure. "Rabbott the Hun", Joe "Cereal-SPC Killer" Hockey, and Eric"Vichy"Abetz have been proven as liars and have been called such by one of their political colleagues. Whereas the Murdoch dominated media would be frothing at the mouth and maniacally screaming from the rooftops if this had been a Labor gaffe they were utterly quiet, Nine and Ten's News had it briefly as their last items and "The Herald Sun" reported it in a small way on page 2, two days after the story broke. This is all happening as the ABC is facing a torrent of abuse for its "bias" and... "not supporting the home team...!"
"Tardis State" ( Where-All-Goes-Backward) pretend Premier Dennis "Inutilus Rusticas" Napthine is bringing in legislation to ban pickets and rallys...which sounds awfully like Fascism to me, whilst the real Premier, the tarnished ex-Liarbril, Geoff"Fiddles" Shaw makes merry with the Liarbrils legislative program.
Do you want to be part of a serious effort to save this planet? Not a serious effort at collective delusion, not a serious effort to feel better, not a serious effort to save you and yours. But an actual strategy to stop the destruction of everything worth loving. If your answer feels as imperative as instinct, then you already know it’s long past time to fight. www.deepgreenresistance.org
Mark Diesendorf: Associate Professor and Deputy Director of the Institute of Environmental Studies at the University of New South Wales, gave this interview
In the light of "Rabbott-the-Hun" saying that we are too energy expensive, he and his Non-Environment lackey "Ozone-Hole" Hunt will no doubt not read Diesendorf's book, particularly the part of the research that says Wind and Solar are now cheaper than gas and Coal and that Wind is Britain is half the price of electricity produced by nuclear and that we could have reliable full base load electricity by 2020. This research makes their position on re-newables utterly stupid and ludicrous.They would prefer the insanity of advice from "The-Coot's-With-Queer-Ideas-from-a-Parallel-Universe" the IPA whose secret backers couldn't care less for the future of the planet, only for their personal profits.
This intellectually lazy and imagination bereft rabble were well and truly "King-Hit" when the satirists Clarke and Dawe in one of their 5 minute works, used solely only what "Rabbott-the Hun" had said publicly to make a hysterically funny (but sad) piece of satire. I have never seen anything as pointed. Needless to say the MSM didn't notice as they were busily repeating that "The Age of Entitlement" is over and we have entered "The Age of Personal Responsibility". Read: Code for reverse Robin Hood tactics.
Leigh Sales once again allowed an interview with "Rabbott-the-Hun" into a Liarbril slogan fest... she's turned 7:30 Report into a light-weight puff-piece and is a disgrace.
PS., copies of "The Horst Wessell" song will be available soon... get your orders in quickly as they're sure to go off with a bang...
