Rockin’ flowers

By Kerces - 25 July 2005 20

Our great leader is going to be rather busy tomorrow with first his meeting with Muslim leaders and then he’s catching up with the Australian music icon that is Molly Meldrum.

The pair are launching Floriade — at ScreenSound since there will be very little to see at Commonwealth Park — and this year’s theme is “Rock’n’Roll in Bloom”.

Any guesses as to bed designs?

What’s Your opinion?

I thought Samuel meant Molly!!! Something going on there???

Why not combine Floriade with the National Dirtbike Championships?

A couple of weeks of bulbs, then put the big dirt mounds to a different use.

i think samuel means HIS MUM!

when im chief minister i’ll replace floriade with an enormous skid pan and sponsor a national burnout festival that lasts two weeks.

I go to Floriade, and the theme this year sounds fun. My baby likes to look at all the pretty flowers, it’s a nice walk in the park, and there’s often music and stuff on at the same time.

A certain interstate person Samuel?

I usually make it to Floriade once every few years…I might go if a certain interstate person goes as well.

floriade is a gross waste of public money. arent there hospital waiting lists or something…

Id Molly is involved I am sure the beds will have pink sheets and pillow cases!

I’m looking for a huge bed made to look like Ozzy Osbourne’s “Bark at the Moon” but I’d settle for Maiden’s “Fear of the Dark”. Incidently, both of these covers feature trees, which is how I sort of tied it in.

Once agaon; how many locals go to Floriade? I might be wrong but I thought it was really the domain of the ‘Grey Army’…

So they are going to lay out the complete Sgt Peppers album cover in flowers?

I would expect (based on what I heard of John Laws interviewing Meldrum this morning) that it will be mainly based around significant musical people & groups.

certainly a shortage of leather, cocaine, and vomit.

Kerces 8:32 pm 25 Jul 05

If so, I suspect they’d have to start sniffing around now, if not months ago. These things seem to get tied up reasonably early.

Anyways, garden beds: I’m betting a large golden guitar will be there somewhere (nevermind that it’s country, not rock)

might be some good opportunities for local musos to get some taxpayer lucre.
