|Graham Hancock on stage in Brisbane, May 2014.|
First of all I have to say that I loved the setting for the talk...
the old museum building right next door to the Brisbane RNA showgrounds.
If you look to the right of my blog you will see a picture I took of a Ferris Wheel some years ago at the Royal Brisbane Show, it's on my sidebar.
|I've put a red ring around the "old museum" in the above photo.|
Back then it was just the museum, not The Old Museum building, as we call it now.
Looks like the old girl is getting a face-lift at the moment, which is good, since Queensland doesn't have a good track record of looking after it's old landmarks.
It was a ticket-less entry on the night, too.
All you had to do was produce photo ID and the staff at the event marked you off the list on their iPads and gave you a wristband to save having to waste paper by you, or them printing out a paper ticket.
Kind of defeats the purpose though, as what was the wristband made out of?
It was a case of first in, first served, as there was no numbered seats and for some reason nobody really seamed to rush for the front row, where I ended up sitting, because the guy and his wife I had been talking to while waiting outside decided to sit up in the front row.

Oddly enough, Graham's talk in Brisbane was held on a full moon, also.
Graham started his talk about his semi-fictitious book War God , which I was hoping to buy on the night, but he wasn't selling any books on the night, so I'll have to get it from Amazon now :-(
After his talk on War God he came down to a table set up to my right to sign books...if you brought some with you, that is.
One selfish guy brought a whole shopping bag full of books from home to sign in a ten minute break with a heap of people lined up behind him.
|I wonder what Graham is thinking while looking at the bag of books plonked down in front of him?|

All in all, a very interesting night I thought.
Thanks Graham, see you next time you're back in Brisbane.
