After getting yet another venue shutdown, the Popfrenzy
crew are back again with King Hit, their new indie night. Its on every Friday at Suzie Q’s on 169 Oxford street (next to the 24 hour newsagency) from this week. But hey, you knew that already?
Rozie had been busting to go and see Australian Idol at the studio in North Ryde and on Sunday, thanks to a friend of her brother Jamie, she got her wish. It was funny watching my wife on TV 🙂 She had a great time
. And she even managed to get her “Save The Vinyl!
” banner on national TV.
Phew. It looks like Kenny Larkin isn’t coming to Sydney this week. According to ITM, he’ll be in Australia in December.
Friday November 26th – Auckland (Morrison Nightclub)
Saturday November 27th – Wellington (Sandwhiches Nightclub)
Friday December 3rd – Melbourne (Public Office/Soma Corp)
Saturday December 4th – Sydney (Gas Nightclub)
Now there’s more time to enjoy the Southern Outpost Record Launch. And here’s an interview with Kenny from earlier in the year. And also interviews with Southern Outpost from 3D World and In The Mix
Making sure I don’t wish BJ a happy birthday a month late this year, Happy Birthday BJ. I swear I remembered before I read the blog entry 😉
Am I the only Australian who has a zero care factor in regards to the Melbourne Cup?
, the default media player is iTunes
. One thing it was missing was an Audioscrobbler plugin. Luckily there are two plugins available for it. Neither is offically available on the Audioscrobbler
site. The first one rhythmlet
, requires rhythmbox 0.8.6 or higher and gdesktlets
, which personally I’ve never been a huge fan of. Luckily there is another plugin called rbscrobbler which is a lot more sane. It only requires a recent version of python and gnome python. The latest version is can be downloaded from here
and the forum post for it on Audioscrobbler is over here
Previously I documented how to get Java installed and running under Ubuntu Linux. That seemed to work OK for most Java applications, but the Mozilla plugins didn’t work. Apparently it had something to do with the gcc version that the packages were compiled with.
Luckily there is an alternate repository with java packages that do work with Mozilla. Add this into your
/etc/apt/sources.list as per usual:
deb http://jrfonseca.dyndns.org/debian ./
And then its
apt-get install j2re1.4 to install
Unfortunately its the same night as the Southern Outpost Launch party at High Jinks, but Kenny Larkin (aka Dark Comedy) will be playing at Bohem on Pitt St, Sydney on the 6th November (umm, this Saturday).
update: Grammar and dates corrected 😛
update: looks like the dates have been shifted to December
