Ninetynine have just put (almost) their entire back-catalogue on their Bandcamp page; pay what you like.


Chuck D: ‘Melbourne Is The Biggest Hip-Hop City In Australia’

Illy? Even in hip-hop, they can't get away from coffee-related stereotypes...


Melbourne’s Polyester Records To Close CBD Store

Comment I Made about 1 month ago

Shame, but at least the FItzroy store is still going and will be burgeoning with stock left over from the city store.

That may be part of the problem, if there aren't punters coming in to buy the stock.

I buy CDs either at gigs, or if the artwork/packaging merits getting the CD. Otherwise, it's usually the download.

The Guardian will be opening an office in Melbourne soon, in addition to the Sydney and Canberra offices. There will be four editorial positions and three commercial ones there.


the general Australian politics thread

Comment I Made about 1 month ago

An insightful essay about analogies between the Nazis and Australia's detention/dehumanisation of refugees. (Tl;dr: Nazi analogies are inappropriate, but not inappropriate enough to sleep entirely easily.)


the general Australian politics thread

I suspect Ludlam may have an easier time of things; Wikileaks is no longer a force, the shine should have come off Palmer a bit, and there may be more scrutiny of the sketchy novelty parties and their preference sheets.

Anybody know when nominations close and how-to-vote cards are published?


Coffee

I think the ROK's portafilter is about the same capacity as my Gaggia Classic's (maybe even slightly smaller), and produces a double shot from this.


Coffee

Comment I Made about 2 months ago

I recently got one of these. It's a hand-operated espresso machine (which is to say, you pour boiling water into a chamber at the top and push down on the levers to force the water through the grounds). It's not exactly the same as a machine-made espresso, but is pretty close, and certainly good enough for use in an office where the alternative is bean-to-cup machine coffee that tastes vaguely of vacuum cleaner dust.
