Michael Kirby - A private life

August 15th 2014 03:22
: RRP $35.00
The life of Australia's longest serving judge is already well documented, but as the author states himself his publishers thought it would be meeting a demand for him to write in his own voice some fragments of memory; and those publishers were quite correct in their thinking.

The difference between reading about a person of great interest, and reading their own words discussing various moments in time is quite enormous. I have had the great honour of eating luncheon with Michael Kirby, and interviewing him on community radio. There is always a difference between the person and the legend regardless of the actual position the person fills, be it David Williamson, Anna Volska, Kate Fitzpatrick or the High Court's Justice Michael Kirby. Simply reading about Kirby's thinking behind revealing his long term same sex relationship with an assembly of Judges in Zambia who look upon homosexuality as immoral is fascinating and reveals far more about the man than you may imagine

Dark Victory

August 15th 2014 03:17
: Dark Victory | Tampa
Now is a good time to reflect on some of the issues that have been raised over the years in relation to so called boat people. It is important to have a clear opinion, whatever your opinion is. In terms of politics, it is so very low to use these situations to an advantage.

To create fear and mistrust in the community. To create fuel for discrimination. It is simply not good. David Marr and Marian Wilkinson's incisive work Dark Victory is certainly worth a look if you have the time and the mind to read something detailed and clear that gives you ample warning about the ways we Australian's may have been manipulated around these issues in the past..

Ozomatli

August 15th 2014 03:03
: Ozomatli
In their fourteen years together as a band, celebrated Los Angeles culture-mashers Ozomatli have gone from being hometown heroes to being named U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors. Originally formed to play at an area labor protest over a decade ago, Ozomatli spent some of their early days participating in everything from earthquake prep hip hop ghetto plays at inner-city L.A. elementary schools to community activist events, protests, and city fundraisers.

Singer songwriter Rufus Wainwright interviewed by David Jobling during the Sydney Festival in 2005

Back in 2005 I interviewed Rufus Wainwright in Sydney while he was doing what he does best - plying his wears and promoting his material to the hilt wherever he goes. He is an extremely talented and sensitive singer/songwriter with a beautiful voice.
