Adam Hadley moving to Brisbane for a bit

Last night I was listening to Brisbane community ration 4ZZZ’s chat to slam poet Darkwing Dubs mostly to hear what they had to say about Canberra’s Bad!Slam!No!Biscuit! poetry slam.

So I was a bit surprised to learn from this unlikely source that Canberra’s champion of the spoken word, Adam Hadley (aka Hadley, aka Jacinda), is moving to Brisbane.

Talking to him last night he’s not seeing this as a permanent move as much as “a bit of an adventure” and at the moment he’s talking about it being a six month stay.

But the temporary has a funny way of becoming permanent (and vice versa).

So safe travels Hadley and I hope Canberra sees you back here sooner rather than later for my own selfish entertainment needs.

A hiatus at least locally one would imagine.

All the best to Hadley, without doubt the most vociferous and incredible compares we know. Hos performances at the phoenix are, were, legendary.

Oh, and if you ever get a chance to hear his poem about F*** Sean, then do. The line about the cat had us in hysterics.

Random dude moves to Brisbane.

I feel really sorry for you.

Sorry because you’ve obviously never had the joy of experiencing one of Hadley’s performances.

Sorry because you’re too stupid or lazy to click the provided link to get a tiny taste of what he’s contributed to this town.

And sorry because he’s leaving town before you’ve had a chance to realise how wrong you are.

Is this the same Hadley as who posted the very funny and incisive comments in capitals on the topic about that harridan who slagged off Canberra? I didn’t realise he was famous.

I don’t think I’m breaching his privacy in saying that is indeed the same Hadley.

Awesome he’ll have a blast. I moved to Brisbane a year ago. Best thing I ever did.

I still read the riot-act daily of course.

Hadley will be missed. I think I am being very selfish here when I say that I hope his trip to Brisbane is only 6 months and I hope he continues with the organising the Majestic at the next Folk Festival. This year was brilliant.

He should have a suburb named after him, or a wild west styled saloon.

Is he random? Yes, look at his clothes.

Is he a dude? Yep. Well, I assume so.

Is he moving to Brisbane? Yep.

Was it reported here first? Yep, probably.

The whole article is about it being reported first on Brisbane radio.

so you’re still about as clever as when you started.

This is the first reason I’ve ever seen to move to Brisbane.

Also a good reason to remove the prohibition against cloning humans. The he could leave behind one Adam dedicated to doing Mr Fibby gigs and all the other stuff (a list too long to write). Possibly a clone would be a better Noimporant anyway.
