… and apparently it means I must talk like Yoda. Coona is short for Coonabarabran. This is my third straight year at their Feast of Words festival. No doubt someone else deserves a turn next year. I love the Coona community (including, of course, all the students and professional nodders and other repeat presenters) and they have been very kind and generous to me. If you’ll remember, there were bush fires out there earlier this year, so I hope things have started to regenerate. I know, thanks to reports from Kellie Nash, uber festival organiser, that Blaze Aid have been involved with the rebuild. What a great organisation.
I was going to complete this post with a picture of stars, as one should when one’s about to visit the Astronomy capital of Australia, but instead I leave you with the song that is in my head non-stop today. I will be listening to it on the drive.
Tres vampire chic. I love her. I like what she has to say in this interview, about the music industry, about being a female in that industry, about the thinking behind the clip for Oblivion (below). Like the film industry, the way women are digested by the music industry depresses the shit out of me. Better yet, I like what Grimes has to say here.
And it turns out her boyfriend is James Brooks from Elite Gymnastics (which I didn’t know, but is interesting to me in a six-degrees-of-separation-on-the-internet kind of way, simply because I have been playing the bejaysus out of Little Things, below), who also wrote a really interesting post on the music industry here.
