NZ Red Cross Concert for Darfur

Here’s something good to do on the 28th of September, if you are in the Wellington area.

Later this month, the San Francisco Bathhouse in Wellington will play host to ‘A Concert for Darfur’. The music event will bring together 10 bands from African drummers to blues musicians and all money raised from ticket sales for the event will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross and their operations in Darfur.  “

Tickets for the concert cost $10 and are available from New Zealand Red Cross, Trade Aid, Real Groovy Records, Cuba Street, and Kwanzaa, The Afrikan Shop, Manners Street, Wellington.

Have you seen my bag of money?

I left it in the parlour. It was your party and they were your friends. Listen to the song

We are suffering from the post holidays empty bank syndrome at the moment,
but a few weeks work should sort that out. It seems that my complaining
about it being to hot has resulted in revolting windy and rainy weather
instead now. Still that helps me stay inside and work more.

Some fun ideas

Ive been playing with a couple of neat little things. One of them is indy.tv From the site:
“Indy is a music discovery program that learns what you like, and plays more of it. And it’s free.

Indy makes it easy for you to find great new independent music. Just download Indy and double-click: as it plays songs, you rate what you hear. Indy quickly learns what you like and gets really smart about sending you more music you’ll like. Let Indy help you find your place in the collective consciousness as you help other people find theirs.”

The other is Connectviabooks which is like an online book club.
