See Change: Newcastle's Merewether Beach Will Kick-start the Australian Leg of the Surfing World Championships?

Bells Beach to miss out on hosting the event on its historic Easter long weekend time slot for the first time since 1961.
Newcastle's Merewether Beach
New Castle? See Change?
Heidi Regan vs Sharks?


  1. As a pro-secessionist New South Welshman I for one welcome the change. However I was trying to add to your sync and I was thinking mere/mare and Mary and the connotations with the Moon and Semiramis. (Mary-Wether beach).

    Then I thought seeing as the bell represents the female form and if the bell has stopped ringing - symbolic of using the bell to ward off ‘evil spirits’ - what will now ward off those pesky evil Corona spirits?

    Oddly I just finished re-reading ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ and as you it takes place during the Spanish Civil War, but the quote I remembered best was ‘There are many who do not know they are fascists but will find it out when the time comes.’ All taking place now I suppose.

  2. Bells Beach just has a better ring to it than Merewether to me:-)
    I've never read 'For Whom the Bell Tolls' or seen the movie, but I did watch Nicole Kidman in 'Hemingway & Gellhorn' recently on Binge, where the novel is mentioned.
