The Tote-Part Three

I can't believe how depressed I am about the Tote. It's got me thinking about my life. Is it a transistion period that life and the universe is forcing me to live an old lady existence? Or just that life as I know (knew) it is being taken over by greedy,self serving bastards who gentrify the areas we love with rampant conservatism?

In case you may have missed it, the 7.30 Report on ABC aired a story on the Tote last night.  Good on you Channel 2.

To John Brumby and Co- go fuck yourselves. You go on about alcohol and violence.. your laws perpetuate it because it's profitable. To quote the late,great Bill Hicks -suckers of Satan's cock, each and every one of you...

The Arthouse.. May 2011. Even the Greek Taverna on Chapel St can't have a bloke playing the bouzouki without 2 security guards.
Madness.

I read that the Arthouse could be next.. Gee whiz. where will all those bands get a start?

Australian Idol- that's probably what they think the way forward is. Bleahhhhh!

Idol--- oh dear. That is just young talent time without the pre-pubescent kids and Johhny Young's wandering hands.

We need a national protest- not just a Melbourne one. It's not just the Tote- our pub music scene is being murdered before our eyes.

I propose we gather interest via Facebook,Twitter or whatever it takes to incite the masses. Each state should have a rally outside Parliament House in their state to fight stupid licensing laws and to save live music!

Myf Warhurst has a good article about on the age website today.. I think she even picke dyou out in the crowd:

" I saw metal dudes in waistcoats with no shirts, old rockers, 19-year-olds in fashion band tees, Goth girls, blokes in '90s flannel shirts, '50s girls with fringes, mums and dads, babies and a grandma"

Yes I've just used it for my latest diatribe on the Tote. I'm having my own personal wake!

I was one of the 50's girls with fringes there!
