Re: CONCERTS IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

Great stuff Jarkko, very welcome news, thank you as always. Ann and I were a little apprehensive about the dates, as she leaves Perth for Germany on 22nd November and I leave Perth for Germany on 5th December, so 13th November is perfect for us and the new Perth Arena is a genuinely magnificent venu...

A Moment in Berlin, the Light Blazing

What a concert, what a very special night. I thought it deserved a revisit. For you see the Berlin concert was held in the open air Waldbuhne Stadium, once a potent symbol of the Nazis. Hitler had it built for the 1936 Olympics, later, he had a private box there. As you walk towards the stadium, the...

Re: Dino not in the band

Whilst I’m sad to hear that Dino (and Bob) are not playing the new concerts, I’m really pleased and excited at the reality of a new sound – perhaps a new direction to Leonard’s wonderful poetry and music. Art and literature are about so many things, but at centre stage, will always be creativity. Pe...

Fantastic! A wonderful way to meet wonderful like-minded friends and even more for Ann and I - we would never have met, if not for the Forum!
Here's to the next decade!

Re: Hydra meetup in June 2011

Wonderful thank you so much Jarkko - Ann and I will both be there - she flies into Perth tonight - well, 2.30am in the morning (Friday 31st Dec), so she'll be overjoyed at the news - we'll book ourselves in this weekend - ostensibly flying into Athens around Monday 6th, then across to Hydra on the T...

Salutations people Further to Ann's very kind post - I'm still learning how to use the new movie / slide show programme (a wonderful gift from Ann). Time is the enemy - I need to sit quietly with the programme for a couple of days, indeed, I haven't worked out how to make the photos appear in high r...

This is a trial video clip using the wonderful Pinnacles Movie Maker programme Ann just bought me as a gif...

There's about 280 photos all up, so there should be something to please everyone, I didn't use a flash and was about 30 rows back, so a littl...

Re: THE PARTISAN, Perth Concert Nov 24, 2010

Salutations people The only video I had time to shoot, is this very amateurish clip of THE PARTISAN ... a bit of a teaser, for you see I shot 1,134 photos and I'm flat out, like a lizard drinking editing them. Hopefully, in a few hours, I'll post a Facebook link to an album of the best ones. I htne ...

Ticketmaster / the Promoter Tactics in Australia

I feel like taking Tickemaster to Consumer Affairs – perhaps I might! There’s something underhand, “not cricket” about the way they release seats to concerts. When they first release tickets, there are some rows you simply can’t access / buy and even the first two seats on each row are usually “sold...

Great article in The West Australian Newspaper, Fri 27 Aug

Our daily newspaer (The West Australian), ran an excellent article on Leonard, along with a great interview with Sharon (Robinson), in today's paper (Friday 27th August). I think if I tried to scan the article in to fit the Forum specs, it would be too small to read, so I've provided a Facebook link...
