|09:50 pm - For once, all my news is local|
Most importantly: Kevin Rudd's Apology to the Stolen Generation.
I sorta kinda slept in too late to watch it live, but that's what the Internet is for, you know? All us people who missed out the moment itself.
But it's a terribly strange feeling to actually feel pleased about what the Government is doing.
In even more local news, I seem to be proving my contrariness again. I had absolutely no interest in Underbelly until this week. But as soon as they ban it? I'm so there.
Probably says a lot about me, really.
Oh, and the Kimono lady was at the Night Market again. I suspect you can guess the next bit. ;)
*goes back to seeing what overseas news sources have said about the apology*
Current Mood: thoughtful
I feel angry that Howard wouldn't even attend. Nelson's speech was offensive, but you can say he tried. And poor Gough! I spose he's in his 80s now, but damn! My grandfather is around his age and he looks better than that! :P
Here's another sorry - this is def. going to be a 700 MB download. It will be on the Aussie Torrents about nowish, maybe an hour. I'll post a link when I see it..
Howard really is lacking in class. Or maybe he's just a sore loser. I was a bit disappointed in Nelson, because I thought he was being nicely progressive in backing the apology, and then we got that.
Ah well, if it's in the off-peak hours, I can deal with large files. It's only during the day I need to watch the limits.
And We're up!
. According to mininova, it was posted at 12:22. Not bad for an Australian show :)
And now I just need to wait until 2am, when Offpeak time starts.
Oh.. Billy Bragg spoke about the apology at the Big Day Out... The fact he's up to date with Oz politics is impressive..
I just did a mass itunes buy and I just fell in love with the new Regurgitator all of a sudden. Damn!!
Well, I suppose if you are paying like any attention to the news whatsoever, it's hard to avoid at the moment.
thanks for posting the link, I didn't have internet access that day to check anything out, I was going to check out the newspapers, but the 30min videos on youtube is so much better. That is such a good speech, I had tears in my eyes.
btw, since I missed all australian news for the past week, what did Nelson say?
