Get RSM on your side at tax time.

Comrade Stanhope wants you in his database – if you’re an artiste.

By johnboy - 6 May 2005 11

Our Brave Leader has put out a media release calling on local musicians and dancers to sign up to a special database at www.events.act.gov.au so he can give you work in the planned program of bread and circuses.

Nice work if you can get it. I’d be signing on myself if I had any talent.

What’s Your opinion?

DT,

just having a go mate…..

If local bands can get gigs and good money then I’m all for it. Better than getting the standard 10% taken off for agents or not getting work because agents have everything sewn up.

Cheers

Just came across this event on their website: http://www.events.act.gov.au/ozday_parklive.htm

Does that line-up qualify as anti-Howard, rabid leftist anti war save the whales bands?

Ah, I meant rabid….

Gumby typing skills….

Em,

I’m just a tad suspicious about it, knowing very well how governments work.

And it somehow just doesn’t seem right, it just raises to many questions. For instance, if I’m in a redneck band, does this mean that I wouldn’t get work? (Not that I am in a redneck band). Alternatively, if I’m in a anti Howard rapid leftist anti war, save the whales band, will I get more work?

I’ll reserve the right to wait and see what happens.

Actually, is anyone out there going to register? If they do can we know whats the deal?

Cheers

Watch it, he’ll cross reference it with Centrelink and you’ll all get penalised by a third party petty debt collector agency with ties to army recruitment centres.

Thumper, you better be kidding. For once there’s actually an opportunity for musicians to get some government work without having to go through an agent, and you’re knocking it?

how about belly dancing or the whirling dervish – now that would be entertaining!
