Now there's a stupid idea, tipping.

I only tolerated it in the US because I knew how badly the people were being rorted, though even then, I let my friends do it for me. I will never tip anybody in my life. I'm not responsible for paying somebody's wage, their employer is; if they aren't paying a fair wage, the government - not me - should be doing something about it.

At least that's only for a few years. A worker can make minimum wage, or not much above it, for decades here.

But working sucks any way you cut it.

Thought I would bump this thread people, before I nick off to cricket, because we last night experienced one of the greatest concerts ever, with the simultaneous Sound Relief concerts. I went to the Melbourne one, and will post back later, buy my god. Was it incredible. To hear Hunters & Collecters, Split Enz and Midnight Oil playing back to back and so well too, was nothing short of incredible.

Very awesome.....wish I went, though I didn't cause I was all bitter about Sydney having a better line up (Pyke, Colplay, Icehouse, Eskimo Joe) so I kinda "boycotted" it for that reason.

I'll admit the Sydney line up was contaminated with the late additions of Marcia Hines and Farnham, and ours was enhanced with Kylie, but Coldplay > Kings Of Leon.....and Jack Johnson would bore me immensely, while Josh Pyke would excite me immensely.

Sydney also had You Am I, though I reckon Paul Kelly would've been incredible in Melbs.

It's also a staple at weddings, even though it's about a one-night stand.

one of the things on my to-do list is to pick up a girl as that song is playing.

I barely had time to scratch myself on the weekend

Most of the earlier sets ranged from about 20 minutes (Kings) to about 40, and then the last three all got about 45 to an hour. I've written an article which I'll post, too.

Paul Kelly played Dumb Things, To Her Door, Leaps & Bounds and my all-time favourite, How To Make Gravy I really want to go and see him in May now. 80 bucks a pop.

Split Enz, ask Axver, I only knew I Got You, Message to My Girl, Six Months in a Leaky Boat - fucking incredible - and I See Red.

Hunnas played about seven songs, of which I knew When the River Runs Dry, Do You See What I See, Holy Grail, Throw, and ended on some old song called Slug, or something like that. And yes indeed, the brought the horns, and they were in fine form.

Midnight Oil - I was surprised how many songs I knew, I'd heard them all before but didn't know they were Oil songs.

I think it was pretty tough to get tickets.
