But first - yesterday, a fannish meet-up with H, who isn't on lj, but who is a long-time Pros fan. I came away with some things to listen to (Martin reading Christian Jacq's Ramses series) and O Yardley's newest zine \o/! Discussion point of the afternoon started from the Brit-picking angle (some of you found the link via my previous post), then moved to whether we need more 70's/80's-picking as well, because some writing seems to convey a very modern sensibility that can be jarring for those of us who lived through the earlier decades. Even if we did so in Australia and NZ ;-)
We are having a State election later this month. The Libs will most likely get in again, as the State lot are nowhere near as ridiculous and incompetent as the Federal LNP, and Labor is still very much on the nose here. I was even gearing up to vote for Stuart Ayres in Penrith, because he's a moderate and as much a cleanskin as any politician can be, and because ex-Liberal Jackie Kelly is running a spoiler campaign against him. However I just found out we've been redistributed back into the Blue Mountains seat, so it looks like Greens or Labor (both candidates are women of the left) for me.
