Smoking, Cyclists on the road, RU486 and beer

By Blamemonkey 20 February 2006 33

Now that I have you attention

I was wondering what people thought about organising a RiotAct get together??

I’m going to go as far and say that RandomGit and I will be going to toast on Friday I think..

Do people want to meet and greet before hand and have a couple of beers

What’s Your opinion?

hear hear… more music to the artists. We are a bit spoilt as patrons, not prepared to pay to see some good music. $5 is nothing, cheap enough to take a risk and see how you like it. Muso’s need to eat and pay rent too!

Maybe they could revert to the old… pass the hat around for the muso’s on the night? drunk, appreciative audience members could equal some good takings for the evening… and all for the bands. do you think it would work?

Maelinar: That somebody is the Musos. Because of their cover charge Toast actually allows bands to make a decent chunk of money (if they attract a crowd), as almost the full cover goes to the bands directly. Which maybe can make them a tad more independent of the ‘horrible’ arts grants that a lot of Riotacters despise.

The reason for the cover charge is that they’ve got a number of bands playing. Now, if you don’t like the bands, you don’t have to go, but those who do are paying for something better than what’s on at Woolies. Or at least, something different (I haven’t sampled the current quality of Woollies musak, so I have no idea whether it beats a live band).

My wife said exactly the same thing over dinner last night. It mattered not a jot!

Thanks for the info guys, I’ll decline citing I think the $5 covercharge is sufficient reason for me to not go anywhere near the establishment.

Personally I find it incredulous that somebody is willing to charge me $5 to enter their establishment so that I can spend over $100 on beer, wine and spirits that I can get from Woolies for $20.

I’m feeling empowered and all sorts of other pinko stuff. Love to stop and chat but I’m off to protest for the land rights of gay whales.

Do you wear band-aids on your knuckles, or don’t you graze them anymore when they’re dragging on the ground?

some mindless trivia about perceptions of wearing the colour pink, seems it was ok for men earlier last century:

The color of pink is now associated with womanhood, just like blue is associated with boys and manhood, although The Ladies Home Journal said the reverse was the “generally accepted rule” in an edition of 1918, describing pink as “more decided and stronger” while blue was “more delicate and dainty”.

Slappy – real men wear pink…smoker!

Is this uberbitchytrolly day at RA….???

Slapp_monkey 2:06 pm 22 Feb 06

Random,

I was actually making a comment on the general drug taking nature of the club, and the RA. But as to me being a troll that is most likily a fair comment and accurate.

p.s. Shab how is your tree hugging going?

RandomGit 1:56 pm 22 Feb 06

Slappas, just… wrong dude. What the hell brought that on? Also, I said Astroworld (nestled in right-wing Texas no less) not Astroboy. Clearly you are a just a troll.

Mael, Toast is above electric shadows. There is a large courtyard surrounded by shop fronts up there that I affectionately refer to as ‘legoland’, you’ll see why on the night.

Toast is a fairly standard generic pub, a wee bit funky, small.

5 dollar entry fee.

Thats all I got.

It’s above electric shadows. Nothing on tap but a resonable variety in the fridge. If you get there early you can have your guiness-in-a-can in one of their few pint glasses.

The crowd is mostly cute artsy girls and boys who want to meet them.

Maelinar 1:33 pm 22 Feb 06

Sounds like the Durham. I’ll be there drinking beer on friday afternoon and the occasional wanker in a pink shirt will walk in, get called a dandy poser boy and leave.

I’m still deliberating about going to Toast, but to make the decision a little easier I would appreciate the following information:

How do I get to Toast from the Durham (using the McDonalds and KFC reference system) ?

Where is Toast exactly (unless the first question answers this) ?

Do they cater for a particular scene (particularly are they the next Heaven nightclub) ?

Do they have either of the following on tap ?
– Guiness ?
– Cider ?
– Carlton Draught ?

If they serve Guiness, do you get it in the cool ribbed pint glass or a conventional pineapple style pint glass, or a scummy pot/schooner ?

Is there an entrance fee ?

Mr_Shab 12:59 pm 22 Feb 06

Okay Slapp_monkey. I’m glad you’ve found a medium for your drivel. How about putting forward an arguement or something useful rather than posting excrement.

The clubs of which you speak still exist. There’s one just down the road from my house, although people in pink shirts don’t get smacked about anymore because neanderthals like you are too busy pushing their paycheques into the pokies.

Guess I best get blowing, eh. I’m off to cry and hug a tree.
