Hmmm. All this music started with my D:Ream tweet, so really, it’s Vladimir Putin’s fault.

Now I’m trying to remember when I’d have seen Pansy Division live, and who I went to the gig with.

via TweetDeck

Actually, I’ll throw in this. Pansy Division’s “Smells Like Queer Spirit” youtube.com/watch?v=xeCAI3…

@SnarkyPlatypus Indeed. So much… um… important history of Australian music.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Anyway, that’s enough music for now.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes. If only to see how close it is to, um, the legends.

@DianneCostin I was only in Dar es Salaam a very short time, the base for 10 days in Tanzania. I’d like to spend more time there.

@MartinCuddihy Wow that is most generous. I only changed flights in NBO, at around 0500, so I didn’t really see it.

@whiteswine Well, it was that at the Prosh Breakfast too. People were hurt. One girl has three broken ribs and a fractured skull, I think.
