|The EKKA rides captured in the rain
by me last night
|Starr's latest painting,
just in time for Brisbane's EKKA
The Carnival Comes to Town
which is quite synchy when I look back on that post,
because I just got tickets to see The Living End
play my local winery in November for
A Day on the Green , supporting Jimmy Barnes ,
neither of whom I have seen play live as yet.
One thing I noticed last night was that the old iconic Skywheel had been replaced by this smaller wheel pictured above, which I found to be a little sad.
|The Skywheel is just a thing of the past now:-(
I wonder if they still have the Star (Starr?-) Wheel on the
other side of the EKKA showgrounds?
|Me watching the wheels go round
from the outside last night.
I had no intention of going and taking these pictures last night, but as fate would have it, I had tickets to see Tim Freedman playThe Old Museum last night and that venue is right on the corner of the EKKA grounds.

channeling Harry Nilsson
ended the set on this song from the movie
The Fisher King starring Robin Williams.
Stranger things have happened quite by accident though.
Robin Williams' Family Guy episode showing failed suicide attempt was on BBC Three minutes before death was announced
|I guess that you can always decide
if you want to take the red pill ...

|Night at the Museum?
Robin Williams in The Fisher King and my first post
using one of Starr's pictures was in my post on the Story Bridge -
Story About a Bridge
of Robin Williams in the Museum movies.
" ROB BRYDON and STEVE COOGAN are on the road again with director Michael Winterbottom in THE TRIP TO ITALY.
Having savoured the delicacies of northern England on their last trip in 2010, the two reunite to sample the cuisine of a warmer climate, riffing on Byron and Shelley, singing along to Alanis Morissette,'s (Jagged Little Pill) doing sometimes hilarious imitations as they make their way from Piemonte to Rome, down the Amalfi coast and ultimately to Capri, lurching from one gourmet meal to the next."
Love on the Rocks ... A Fool's Journey?
|Life can be a bitter little ironic pill
to swallow sometimes.
about Gough Whitlam , which I thought was pretty synchy, since I had Malcolm Fraser sign a book called The Whitlam Mob at the beginning of the month at the BBWF. :-)
