A Statement of Belief

Belatedly, On Easter:

“If ……  Easter does not move us to empathy with refugees, concern for the large and growing gap between rich and poor, and global warming, among other Common Good issues, then I suspect that our perception of God is too small.”

Rev. Dr Brian Brown, Moderater of the NSW Uniting Church.

Alberta Hunter: Historical Footage of A Black Lesbian in her Prime, from 1935

Doing some research for the queer radio show Pink Nation, that I’ve been asked to host on http://www.voxfm.org.au/ tomorrow, Monday, 5:00 PM, I came across this gem! Perhaps I should more politically correctly describe Alberta as African American, except that she spent substantial periods of her life in Europe, having first gone to Paris with her lover Lottie Tyler in 1927. -They had met sometime between 1915 and 1917.

 

For the Bentley Blockade: A Nonsensical Verse

Most of Australia is probably unaware that a peaceful battle against a mining giant is taking place in rural NSW as we speak. -And I mean an active battle.

A Verse for the Bentley Blockade, from Uncle Dougie’s continuing Nonsensical Song of Protest:

Metgasco wants mining at Bentley,
But the people united do not,
Sing strong and sing free, in 4 part harmony,
Metgasco must simply be stopped,

And it’s nonsense, nonsense, it sounds like a whole lot of rot to me,
With joy and with glee, let’s make clean energy,
Then the mining will definitely stop!

Agitate in August: (Was March in March, then Agitate in April), Verse of the Day

A pay rise for health-care workers, (naaah!)
Coz we know you all love your jobs,
And child-care for the rich, it costs more than a titch,
So the workers are still being robbed,

And it’s nonsense, nonsense, it all sounds like nonsense to me, to me,
And child-care for the rich, it costs more than a titch,
It all sounds like nonsense to me!

 

Agitate in April; “Nonsense Song”; Verse of the day:

Australia is getting much hotter, (It’s hot!)
But the government reckons it’s not, (It is!)
There’ll be no carbon tax, so our future’s been axed,
And it sounds like a whole lot of rot!

Well, it’s nonsense, nonsense, it sounds like A WHOLE LOT OF ROT to me,
Nonsense, nonsense, it sounds like A WHOLE LOT OF ROT!
