The weekend once again looms before us!

Here’s your chance to tell your fellow Canberrans what you think they should do with their time.

(And you don’t even have to get 10,000 water bottles printed)

Just let rip in the comments.

OK then, I’ll settle for VIRTUAL Aarvarks. That should increase the govt. subsidy…

if you can’t get the aadvark’s would you look at getting the albatros’s’s’s? My favourite is strawberry.

Oh, I think the way that festivals are subsidised around here, actual appearances by Aardvarks is only an optional requirement.

…and a herd of aardvarks, Thumper.

Thumper – What’s all that about?

Night Train at Walsh’s in saturday night.

Cute local singer-songwriter. Check her out!

You can always head to Toast to catch three of Canberra’s best for just $4.

clockwork orange has made me fall asleep too.
there’s some tents and stuff setup at the bottom of anzac parade, anyone know what these are for ?

Johnno & the Trannies

Much catchier than “The RiotACT”.


Most of us will have missed it by now, Kandy, since the 8th was last week!

Unless you’re meaning the 18th?

a load of loud.

VEEBEES 8 November 2006, The Pot Belly, Canberra w/ Johnno & the Trannies
if you miss this you may as well adorn an “i am a big woofter” T-shirt
not that theres anything wrong with that, and you might like to check out the support if u dont think this has something for everyone
As long as everyone likes beer, guitars, blokes and all of them load.

I generally avoid movies that make me fall asleep – unless i wanna fall asleep – then ill put The Dark Side of Oz on 😛

The Harmonie German Club is holding a Frühschoppen (Market Day) and Christmas Market on Sunday 19 November at 11am. From their website:

“Come along and enjoy a morning of shopping at the club with all the usual products available for purchase. Christmas gifts and gifts will be available for purchase. Traditional wood craft, Advent floristic, jewellery, board games, oil paintings, etc. Link’s smallgoods will be there, too! Coffee and cake available. And Santa will be there, too! Parents to provide small presents for your children.”

yeah, i get pretty bored during his movies. a clockwork orange makes me nauseous though, so i don’t watch it these days.

i have fallen asleep several times during clockwork organge. i think it is mostly that kubrick fails to engage me – despite the fact the fact that his ideas interest me.

yeah – big difference seein git on a big screen tho – rather than 42 inches.

Was good fun when i was in h/s loved the green and had a mate who lived in reid.

Well, even shadows hasn’t shown it in about 6-7 years (largely because it came out on DVD – which means that, yes, you can see “Clockwork Orange” any time you want in Canberra).

According to Mr, hargreaves’ media release it’s the dog’s day out this Sunday, 11.30 to 14.30 at Lake Ginninderra, off Diddams Close.

With a flyball demonstration!

I have seen Clockwork Orange aboit 6 times at Electric Shadows.

Good luck seeing that ever again in canberra when Electric Shadows shuts – anyway….. Friday night ANU bar Using Three Words / Hancock Basement / Super Best Friends / Serenik / The Dead Scene $5/$10

Um, the Gundagai dog on the tucketbox festival.

Also the end of the mega Hartley House big-ride (via Charlotte’s Pass). The carnivale atmosphere will be centered around Reconciliation Place from 1pm – 4pm Sunday.

Well, the last time the Ronin group generally showed stuff like “The Wall” was back when the Centre Cinema was closing – a lot of the old favourites are being lugged back

Although Shadows did show Seven Samurai sometime last year, from memory, for a few screenings. And there have been a few odds and sods this year as well (largely filling in for the Film and Sound Archive while they finish fine-tuning their new el-spectacular digital cinema).

aha bonfire.. when’s the last time electric shadows played those movies anyway? i’ll take an ignorant guess and say a fair while ago.. maybe for some special occasion? probably with something like the same frequency that dendy will screen them? hm. “damn the corporates, those assholes, they don’t play movies that don’t get played elsewhere anyway. o noes..”

pink floyds: the wall at shadows 10.35 friday night.

you will never see this on 35mmm on the big screen again as arthouse cinema in canberra corporatises like every other city.

i doubt mcDendy cinemas will ever screen dr zhivago or seven samurai in any of its multi-screens.

In the theatre stakes, a lot’s finishing and one thing’s starting:

– “Can’t Pay? Won’t Pay!” finishes its run on Saturday night – farcial Italian Socialist schenanigans from the Nobel Prize winning Dario Fo, presented by Centrepiece Theatre – performances tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday night at 7:30, plus a matinee at 2pm on Saturday – at the Studio at the Street. Tickets $15-25.

– “Boston Marriage” also finishes in the main theatre at the Street this week – sex, scheming and sarcasm from David Mamet – performances tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday at 8pm, plus Saturday matinee at 2pm. Tickets $25-30.

– Free Rain’s “Summer of the Seventeenth Doll” is plugging itself as “The Most Important Australian Play Ever Written”, which feels a little hyperbolic – still, it’s a great production of a classic of Australian theatre, that still holds up almost 50 years later. Performances tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday at 8pm, plus Saturday matinee at 2pm (all tickets $18) at the Courtyard Studio of the Canberra Theatre – tickets $20-25 otherwise.

– “I’ll Be Back before midnight” kicks off for Canberra Rep this week – a retreat to a quiet country house becomes more and more dangerous, as twists, turns and gunshots create blood-curdling fun – $20 preview tonight, then tomorrow and Saturday night at 8pm, and on until 9 December. Tickets $20-$32.

The Cat Empire are shaking down Stage 88 on Sunday from 3pm… should be worth a look.

Spoil – friday night at the greenroom.
