Thanks a million - I think you could be right. Baron's is a true afterhours bar and we are usually pretty tanked by the time we get there, coupled with the fact that the place is so dimly lit and smoky, thus making it difficult to see anything very clearly. I'll be getting pi--ed there on Friday nig...

Paintings by Rubens?

I am hoping someone can help me identify a painting I have been talking about with a partner in crime, so to speak.... We frequent an amazing, shadowy afterhours bar in Sydney (Barons) that hasn't changed in decades. (Seems our licencing laws are much different to the UK, where everything shuts earl...

God does answer prayers but He goes about it in an indirect way. If you petition your subconscious, it will come up with answers but, like dreams, you've got to recognize and interpet the indirect way in which things are done.

Hey Indrek! No sweat, I had my Duran Duran and Go West phase too. Shriekback and The Sisters shone large though :D --- Even Duran had a gothic-looking mid-80s phase with their mellow Arcadia off-shoot project. But they don't answer questions about why they portrayed such a look (black suits, black ...

The Bee Gees were in the list, with their Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Ironically, and sadly for them, it was far from their favourite period of their music (they hated it!), even if it was their most commercially successful. They also penned a phenomenal number of hits for other people.

Do I believe in God? Actually, yes, I guess so, but I don't know what shape or form He (oops, sorry, She!) takes, and I don't pretend to know. At this stage, I don't know if I ever will know between now and then end of my (current) life. I hope I do. I got into meditation for a while, but this was w...

Sorry to sound awfully naive, but what is it? A list of people's favourite albums? I assume it's a list of punters' faves, not critics, otherwise Bob Dylan and Marvin Gaye would be in the top five of the list, not somewhere down. Was Radiohead the number one fave amongst voters, or is the list random?

Big Brother is a show that makes light of the very concepts George Orwell presented and warned of in his famed book. In that regard, BB reality TV is actually pretty disgusting really, isn't it?

I worked with a guy about five years back in a job I eventually got fired from. I am yet to kick them in the head for that, but they'll keep. Anyway, some new guy started work with us and it soon became obvious that he was a "born again". Shortly into the first shift, he said, "So, do you believe in...

When people ask what music I listen to, I usually say "Whatever's on the radio", which is often true. By the way, my tastes are diverse and I am not one for the clique-ishness of some music-scene bullsh-tters. If I wanted to talk to a pussycat, I'd go down the SPCA. How many bands, by your estimatio...

"Where Are They Now?" Sure you want to know?

Scroll through the 80s Who's Who list, courtesy of The Guardian. Looks like Rick Astley is the only one who's laughing these days...

A much more satisfying read than Mercer's "Black Book" which was pure twaddle. Hmm.

Here's another 'hilarious' (and true) eBay story.... I sold something for $660 US dollars on eBay. The buyer lives in Calgary, Canada. I live in Sydney, Australia. He paid by credit card and then did a credit card reversal once he received the item. Now he has the money and the goods. Here's the tru...

I thought it was Arimathea (spelling?), or was that the town he was from? Sorry if the question seems naive.
