Woodford Folk Festival

December 30, 2008

Bluegrass Parkway performing live at Woodford

It’s that time of year when people from all across the country, and others from further abroad brave the insufferable heat in order to take part in one of the best folk festivals in the world. With over 2000 performers and 400 events, Woodford Folk Festival packs crowds within the scenic surroundings of the Sunshine Coast hinterlands. Last year brought intense bouts of rain, mud and camping landslides, however this year the ground is dry and but the air is definitely on the warm side. Despite a very high risk of heat stroke, most patrons manage to enjoy themselves, finding refuge in dance workshops, cafes and a bit of shade under a tree, or a nice breeze….if you are lucky.

There is never a dull moment when commentators Rollo and Jeay get on it on a thursday afternoon. If you tune your radio to 102.1fm at this time you can expect to hear the sounds of gruff aussie males talking about, well, bloke things. Porn was a major contender on this weeks show, however don’t be perterbed by the not quite G rated conent as these boys are definitely very entertaining. If you’re tired of listening to the CD’s in your car and you are stuck in traffic, Concept warning is for you. WARNING: Contains semi nudity. 

..A oddly large amount of semi nudity for a radio show, actually.  (more…)

Ever wondered what to do with left over rice? Sick of it sitting in your fridge for days until the inevitable throw out? Not gonna eat that curry in a hurry?

Nasi Goreng, or Indonesian fried rice is quick, delicious and easy. And is best made with dayold rice, however if you want to make it fresh, it still tastes pretty good. (more…)

Mungo: I don’t have that many Gig Things this week, because Saul Williams is playing, and that’s all that matters to me. I can’t remember the last time I’ve felt so Fanboyish. No, wait, M.I.A last year. But that’s beside that point. I’m giddy. (more…)
