You little beauty!
I got my new camera this week. It’s a Fujifilm Finepix S5600, and I’d like to thank patrickg of the Blueberry Fool blog for recommending this camera to me. It was only A$ 429 from Digital Camera Warehouse including delivery and a 1GB memory card.
(To give you an idea of how much that is, I work in an office 3 days a week and get about $A 380 for that).
“I Had To Grow Up Before I Grew Down” is a song about finally seeing the end of a long, hard, lonely road, and it’s full of heart.
The two instrumental tracks are called ‘Sparrow‘ and ‘Blue Sky Realm‘.
And the last song is a happy, fun pastiche/homage to Bob Dylan’s music, called:
This is just the start of what I can do with this new camera, so let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see. Enjoy the music!

Yes, you read that title correctly. This post is letting you know about a great music website, called – guess what? – Brisbane Music. Obviously, they went to the same “Why be subtle” School Of Headline Writing that I did.
The site is pretty new, but the best thing about it is their Brisbane Music player. They already have 14 tracks from the following artists:
Sonic Porno: Just Like You, Waiting Around
Glasshouse: Take Tomorrow, One in Five (click here for a YouTube vid of them being interviewed for Raw Audio)
The Rocketsmiths: Some Time of Mine, Worth It
Winds and Brackets: That Tight
Go and check out the band interviews and news on Brisbane Music as well. And if you’ve got any other Brisbane websites you’d like to see featured on Brisbane Is Home, leave a comment and let me know.

A few weeks ago, I plugged a gig in the Valley Mall, by Tim Steward, (myspace, or last.fm), who is also lead singer of Brisbane band Screamfeeder (last.fm). I tried taking photos and videos, but it was just too dark for my low-end digicam to pick up anything.
Screamfeeder’s last.fm page also has heaps of free tracks:

Iron Chef America look out! You are a pale imitation of the original, and there is no-one on your show who is
completely out of touch with reality and wears insane brocade jackets eccentric.

It’s on Briz-31 (UHF-31) tonight (Saturday) at 10.30pm. And if you’re not in range, you can watch videos, listen to music and see recipes from the show at The Rock and Roll Cooking Show’s website.
Keep reading to find out more, and see video clips from the show.
