16MM LAUNCH WRAP AND GIG TONITE!

16MM LAUNCH WRAP AND GIG Saturday 4 November

Yo Music Lovers:

Here’s a message from 16 Millimetre:

Thanks to everyone who helped celebrate the EP launch. It was bigger, louder and more ravishing than anyone could have imagined. Special thanks to; Jess The East’s in-house engineer who took the brakes off and let the band explore the full intensity of 16mm’s sound, Xavier 16mm’s lighting tech inspired an outbreak of seizures and Ben the miscellaneous merch boy who recalled Tom’s past excursions in This Machine.

Oh yeah… and thanks to the anonymous person who grabbed the official band-cam for filming the night. Anyone with a fetish for Cara’s ankles and her delicate pedal action can get 20 minutes of uncensored footage. It’s a little disturbing. If your memory of the night is a little shady, virtual memories are now up at http://www.myspace.com/sixteenmillimetre.

This Saturday 4th November, 16 Millimetre is giving you the chance to prove that Australians are not disengaged from the Real Issues and that political fights are not solely reserved to men in flannies who like sausage sizzles. It’s time to ..Rock For Your Rights At Work.. with fellow belligerents David Bridie, D.Rogers, The Disappointments, Sime Nugent, Monique Brumby & Bom. Nov 4 at the Grand Central in Melbourne town. 16mm are on early 8.15pm.

So this Saturday rally your support, throw your fist up in the sky and bring a long neck. If fact if anyone who comes actually brings an empty Melbourne Bitter long neck they will get a 16mm badge and the first one through the door will get a drink on the band.

Pari & 16mm ***http://www.myspace.com/sixteenmillimetre

DADDY COOL AT THE BIG DAY OUT?

DADDY COOL AT BIG DAY OUT? WHAT THE?

Dear Cool watchers,

Thanks for the phone calls and the SMS messages. I heard Triple J’s Daddy Cool Big Day Out rumour, too – but have no idea whether or not it is true!

Friday at the Deni Ute Muster headlining gig the fans were frenzied & ecstatic – there was crowd surfing and everything – a first for the band, at least in this century! The most amazing thing was the kids – they were totally into it!

Just goes to show that good music is timeless – just like Daddy Cool!

The band will be touching down in Melbourne any minute now after their Deni/Narooma gigs this weekend and I shall investigate Big Day Out rumours…Who knows? Maybe they’ll do an all ages gig! Stay tuned and watch Ross Wilson’s website too at www.rosswilson.com.au & www.myspace.com/daddycooltheband!

Cheers,

Karen

Yeah, I thought so!

Cheers, then!

SHEH ANSARI, NELSON MANDELA AND A BLOG FROM OUTERSPACE, MAN!

First Female Private Space Explorer & Space Ambassador Anousheh Ansari, has been officially part of to the Soyuz TMA-9 primary crew. The first female spaceflight participant launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on September 18, 2006 and is now aboard the International Space Station (ISS) along with the Expedition 14 crew members: NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin.

..By reaching this dream I’ve had since childhood, I hope to tangibly demonstrate to young people all over the world that there is no limit to what they can accomplish, said Anousheh Ansari, chairman and co-founder of Prodea Systems, Inc.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Nelson Mandela

Dear Space Cadets,

Anousheh Ansari is really something. She has written a piece Time-Life would kill for while still up in space!

Go here to be inspired: http://www.anoushehansari.com/ Worth visiting if only for the YouTube video links to be found therein, but I love the poetry myself.

If you’ve got any interest in space travel at all, it’s worth the time to read it.

BTW, it took them 2 days(!) to reach the station, and 3.5 hours to return to earth.

An absolute inspiration for us earthlings!

See you on the moon!

Cheers,

Karen
