Daily Good News for WA, not so much for Vic

"Vegan activist Tash Peterson has vowed to leave WA once again after being banned from every pub and restaurant in the State, claiming her “freedom of speech” has been taken from her. Peterson said she was “getting the f*** out of WA” and had booked a one way ticket to Melbourne with her partner Jack Higgs.
We have a one-way ticket to Melbourne and I’m going to just going to protest over there.”

Far as I'm concerned, as soon as you get your tits and sexualise things to get attention you lose a whole lot of moral integrity.

Are you referring to womens pro surfing? The butt thong looks great but as for practical application? Even less in solid surf , maybe gets a few more points from the red blooded judges or opens up the chance for a arse shot for a shitcurl/ dicksilver add?
The backs of my legs get so fried when I surf in boardies or short leg wetty much less a butt thong (maybe thats why Lakey P,s surfing looks so jerky and she seems pissed off all the time? Fried Arse ).

"Seven eastern quolls have been released in western Victoria, marking a long-awaited return for the species feared lost to extinction in mainland Australia."

These little guys are so cool, came across them when working with devils. Reintroducing the devil surely is on the cards - get rid of the fox cubs!

How good are Op Shops. This one isn’t the cheapest but three good and varied reads for $7 aint too bad. Even found a sequel to Hell West and Crooked by Tom Cole, the rogue croc hunter/vagabond/ adventurer from the NT. This book appears to be about his post-war exploits in New Guinea. Signed no less. As you’d expect for the princely sum of $2!

DSDS, as seriously under age teenager I saw Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs play at the Sunbury festivals in front of thousands of delirious fans. So loud so raw so much power-no summer of love there

I'm sure Nat's chosen ye olde English font for the association with the titular church, yet I see it and my first thought is 'speed dealing biker'.

Yep. Some good titles there. Pretty sure I used to have the Billy Thorpe one but never read it. Apparently it’s one of the all time Aussie rock Autobiographies so I’m looking forward to it. I’m already into the Tom Cole one about New Guinea is a cracker. It’s like a subdued Les Norton cast into one of the most exciting frontier lifestyles of all time. Very colourful and even better cause it’s factual. Crazy the shit that the chances got up to in Papua and New Guinea after the war. Interesting reading some of the history too like when the Queen’s agents turned up one day and announced to the natives that the joint was now a protectorate of Her Majesty who would look after them from now on. The locals indulged that for a couple of years and then ate the Queen’s agents.

Stu….I’ve got a mate who’s got a tramp stamp above his date in that same script. A bloke! So it’s certainly lost a bit of it’s hoped for reverential association in my book. Not a huge Nat Young fan but it was worth two gold coins. That’s about right I reckon. Fits into the surfing canon on the shelves too.

Be interested in a review on Nat's book from you DSD. I don't think it's a spoiler to say that Nat's a fan of Nat (and that's that)- even if you aren't.

I will endeavour to provide an entirely subjective assessment of Church of the Open Sky.

The chapter with Nat attempting to make amends with Midget is worthy. I don't think it's a spoiler to say their fifty-year rift isn't resolved, but it shows the depth of the spite.

Also, it's worth trying to get a hold of his previous book, 'Nat's Nat and That's That'. Sure, the fella's got an ego, by my word he can tell a good story. That book is overflowing with them. The kind of guy you'd like sitting at your table during a wedding reception.

mmm...maybe for a few stories, but not sure I could last a whole night with him at the table. I sat through his book launch in Aireys Inlet. That was enough.

I haven’t watched any of the Comm games but caught this race by chance last night. What a run in the home straight. Chased down two world champs for the win.
