Learning that Lucy was pregnant at the start of the rehearsal process of ‘Strange Factories’ was a huge concern for me on so many levels.
I felt like the art was testing how committed we were, and in turn I knew this was one of the fundamental themes Victor deals with in his journey to realise…
A writer, haunted by an idea for a new story hunts for four refugee performers of a theatre destroyed in a mysterious fire. He locates his friends in a remote, pagan settlement founded by Stronheim; owner of a Strange Factory hidden deep in the local countryside that emits an infamous Hum.
I think sometimes people forget that the government is in fact, here to serve the people. We do not exist to serve them - though their pay packets may make some think otherwise. At the end of the day, their job, that they receive those huge pay packets for, are to serve the people, to make this country the best country it can possibly be, to make a safe, successful and energetic environment for our future generations. Our government is to support every Australian citizen, including Julian Assange. That is their job. Our Government is not to keep important secrets from us, like signing the ACTA (see previous rebloggings on ACTA). Our Government is to create a safe environment for the people, not to try and gain political brownie points by instigating a riot. Our Government’s job is to bring all people together as one, not cause division and hate as part of a smear campaign against the different factions. Our Government seems to have forgotten the most basic rolls of their position. You are answerable to the people, and you WILL answer to the people. The backlash against the Labour government will be nothing short of spectacular, and I am glad that I will be able to watch the ALP fall. No one can trust a government that stabs their own in the back, places their own poppet (aka Gillard) in the new position and then let her fail in ways that make the nation feel that women are have no place in politics. I am deeply offended as a woman by Julia Gillard, Julia Gillard is a terrible representation of women, and she has failed us terribly. The question is, was she set up to look this bad? And that brings you back to what sort of a Government have we got running our country? What sort of a Government leaves an Australian citizen out to dry because it doesn’t want to offend the US? Julian Assange deserves 110% support from our government. He is a fighter for our right of freedom of information. When did that become so terrible that your Nation’s leaders would turn their backs on you? When your National leaders heads are up the ass of the United States of America, that is when. This is my opinion, and my opinion will show at the election booths in QLD this year, and the Federal Elections in 2013, or before if we are lucky!
