Sydney Fireworks… Fireworks are an art form bordering on the art of warfare. Peacefully blowing up phosphorus and other chemicals. Fireworks tell us we are ephemeral. Transient. We’re there, shimmering beautiful lights in the night sky and soon we become cinders. Some people think we should give them up, forever.

the year in review: in the rubbish bin of the murdoch media...

This cartoon (24-25 October 2020) by Johannes Leak, Bill's son, has been modified by Gus to remove the exclusive intents of the Murdoch media that show Scott Morrison as an exemplary god-fearing Christian who never tells a porkie and acts like the principal of a college for future advertising delinquents. 

 

The original is quite lame and demand a bit of oldy-worldy sniggering:

This year has been a bad one for most of us, but woke virtue signalers of every stripe have been having the best of times. To honor them, RT presents The Wokies award chart – and first on stage is the entertainment industry.
