Manning and Malthouse and The Dead End (Drive-in)
|Ned Manning was the star of Dead End Drive-In|
Byron Bay Writer's Festival (2011) was called,
Creating Words for Physical Space and it involved Ned Manning.
He was the star of a grind-house movie called Dead End Drive-In,
which coincidentally ran for 88 minutes (see post below).
Which reminds me in some way of this more recent movie with the imagery at least.
I didn't bother buying a copy in 2011, but in 2012 Ned was there again at the BBWF.

So I did, but I didn't get around to reading it until last Monday.
I had just finished reading a book and thought that it would be good to read something light.
I was looking at my "To Read" books and while I was trying to figure out which one to choose
I noticed that someone had just read my Ned Manning post on my blog.
So that was the sign I was after and I took Alice Dreaming out of the pile and started reading while watching the Grammys
(Monday morning in Australia).

In scene two "A Drain" is where Alice escapes into a sewer pipe.
Ned references Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare
and James Bond.
Scene three is called "The Sea", where Alice meets the Albatross which appears on the cover of the book.
This character is meant to be her Guardian Angel, sent to rescue her and show her the way.
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (below).

When I saw the next picture I nearly fell off my chair, and then I read the opening paragraph of the scene.

|My star sign.|
Pink's song Stupid Girls.
|You might say this was a target destination in the play.|
Reference is made to John Lennon's song Imagine.
It's the last scene in the play where the albatross gets killed by shooters and Alice becomes the albatross, by taking the wings of the albatross and flying off.
Some references here are Alice's Adventure in Wonderland and the movies Thirteen and Somersault.
It was a film called "Somersault". "
"...And There's So Much Water So Close to Home" Paul Kelly
What a rabbit hole reading that book was for me.
