More fruity ass Halloween Costumes, Booster!
Awesome website of strange 1980's Halloween costumes including pictures of the Rubicks Cube, Chachi (Happy Days), Welcome Back Kotter, Flipper, Fantasy Island and Flipper. retroCRUSH

Found this site through Boing Boing.

This week's TV WEAK!

It’s election time and it’s time for some political satire! Yippee! Couldn’t think of anything worse. You have to be honest. No matter what your Radio National listening, Baileys drinking, wannabe sophisticate Uncle insists, The Gillies Report was incredibly unfunny. Enduring an episode was much like ice cream headache. Unbearable, much like the ABC’s new political sitcom, Corridors Of Power (ABC, Mondays, 7pm), where Jeremy Sims plays a shit talking ALP backbencher, and much of the wheeling and dealing is done in the mens’ toilet. Maybe a good place to throw the remaining tapes.
I'm writing an article about beer! Its a going to appear in Wednesday's Beat Magazine.

Who's you're favorite Michael Jackson? The singing and dancing Michael Jackson who loves nothing more than to have a tug in his music video or the Michael Jackson who has dedicated his life to finding the perfect beer?

Both are freaks and both have funny lookin' noses.

There's coloured dots polluting my screen. It's starting to really annoy me. If anyone knows how to fix the problem, please email me ( And it's pissing down outside. I have to ride me bike across the city to do my bit on the radio. Listen to me on triple j here (approx 8pm).

Went to see brillo Melbourne band, The Blue Grassy Knoll play the soundtrack to a few Buster Keaton films. Loved it. If you are in Melbourne, make sure you see it tonight or tomorrow at the Astor. Anywhere else, don't miss them when they visit!

The new Black&White mag is in the shops today. Read my article on pervy Euro photographer, Frank Wartenberg complete with pics of bleeding women. Triffic.

Been listening to Gillian Welch's old record, Revival today. It's so good. You can hear bits of her new one on Gillian's website.
Hi. Hi. Hi. "Peters, you're a nerd and stuff. You should do a webpage," they tell me. Oh, great. I'm one of those. I spend a bit too much time at the computer and all of a sudden (not quite all of a sudden, it's been going on for years) they reckon I should do a page. Okay, here it is. What am I going to talk about? The typical. No surprises here. Move on.

For those who don't know me, I'm a Melbourne (Australia) based bloke who writes for a few Australian magazines, mostly Black & White and Beat Magazine, about music, art, sport and what ever else they tell me to write about. I also present a website segment on national radio station, Triple J on Saturday nights. Great huh?

Well, here goes. I wouldn't have bothered to do this if I hadn't seen Boing Boing so go and have a look at it now.

If like me, you are cynical about the music scene, check out rocknerd.

Alright, it's time to eat some cheese.

Oh yeah, my email address....
