St Kilda's Albert Park is undergoing it's annual long transformation into a Formula One race track

The portaloos, splashdowns, beer banners, fences and yarding for the cars and the associated hoopla contrast nicely with the first signs of autumn in the deciduous trees Posted by Picasa

I am The Walrus

From 7-ish on Sunday nights they're the Beatles and later the Kinks. Look to the left as you sit at the bar. Brilliant musians, intense committed delivery and lots of nostalgia at the George Public Bar in Fitzroy St

" Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come
Corporation teeshirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man you been a naughty boy. You let your face grow long
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob"
