Prognosis: Death Pandemic – A cross between Grey’s Anatomy and The X-Files (with a dose of 1950s schlock horror and a good measure of fake blood), Prognosis: Death! Pandemic will again see the audience decide which mysterious calamities and supernatural villains threaten the town’s existence. Running until Saturday 30th January, tickets start at $10 and can be booked through www.impromafia.com.

The World Theatre Festival program defies traditional theatre conventions with works that demand audience engagement from Ireland, the UK and Australia as well as intriguing installations and artist-run workshops. Held at the Powerhouse from 2nd February to 13th February, WTF hopes to bring you some of the most interesting theatre works from across the globe! Head to www.brisbanepowerhouse.org for more info.

The Hearts of Gold #3 opening night is Friday 5th February with all bar profits  heading to the 193 Club which helps homeless people in Brisbane. The exhibition runs until Friday 19th February.

SoCo Carnivale is a confetti-drenched, royal encounter of bee-bop, honky tonk and Cajun thunder – and it’s a fancy dress party. Featuring the mammoth orchestral party collective known simply as The Polyphonic Spree this is a night not to be missed. Also joining in on the festivities at the Powerhouse is The New Orleans Bingo! Show, direct from the New Orleans Mardi Gras. It’s all happening on  Friday 19th February, tickets are $39+BF and can be purchased through www.brisbanepowerhouse.org.

SPOTLIGHT!

Newsbite: Internet Filter

https://i2.wp.com/www.democrats.org.au/images/locked_comp_lowres.jpg

You may or may not have heard about our Government’s plans to introduce mandatory Internet filtering, a move that will see certain websites blocked within Australia. With the Government pegging this as a method to stop Australians accessing child pornography, as well as other websites they deem illegal, there are those who feel it is too far. Some groups are outraged with the possibility of what they see as censorship, and Electronic Frontiers Australia is currently running The Great Australia Internet Blackout in an attempt to raise awareness of the filter’s shortfalls.

Here’s a link for you too.

and another if you feel the need… the need for speed.

Recipes: Real Old-Fashioned Lemonade


Lemonade Stand

As this week is set to be a scorcher, make some good old fashioned lemonade to keep you cool and share among friends.

Ingredient: (Makes about 8 cups)
Lemon juice from 8 freshly squeezed lemons (1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup of caster sugar (more or less according to taste)
5 cups cold water
1 lemon, thinly sliced or cut into wedges
Ice cubes

Method:
Combine the freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar and 2 cups of cold water, stirring briskly to dissolve the sugar. Add the remaining water, ice cubes and lemon pieces ans mix well.

To make honey flavoured lemonade, subsitute the sugar for honey.

Sub outlet: Reverse Garbage

Reverse Garbage

In times of ‘eco’ this and ‘green’ that it’s not often something actually lives up to the green cred hype. I like to think Reverse Garbage does. Nestled among warehouses in West End’s industrial area this store offers all manner of recycled wares, you could almost make anything from Reverse Garbage’s offerings. The guys here have collected stuff from all over Brisbane, from un-needed foam balls to surplus fabric, and they bring you all your second hand needs for a very reasonable price.  It’s good for the environment too, reusing keeps all that pesky carbon under control.

Reverse garbage is a proud supporter of 4ZzZFM
