Tomorrow, I'm on the air 9am-noon on RTRFM (head to www.rtrfm.com.au - you can stream or I'll give you a download link!) doing an Australian/NZ music fest. 
NZ songs include: 
* Short Change - The Adults; 
* Oh My - Gin Wigmore (yes, the theme song from the Almighty Johnsons, in case you never heard the tune in full!)
* Lindon Puffin - Pohutukawa Xmas; 
* Stuck in New Zealand - The Eversons 
and because Grant asked, I've got 
* Melissa Gosselin's rendition of "Ten Guitars"!
Any last New Zealand requests, let me know!

EXACTLY how I want to go. Taking everyone else with me.
 
How This Woman's Guts Were Inadvertently Turned Into A Bomb. Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans nearly killed her mourners at her own funeral. http://io9.com/how-this-womans-guts-were-inadvertently-turned-into-a-b-1691437120
History is peppered with incidents that would not be believed if they were written in fiction. Here is the ridiculous life, and even more ridiculous death, of Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans, a woman who nearly killed her mourners at her own funeral.

NSFW!
Judith Lucy's new series is great - also (incidentally) features Amanda Palmer fighting for feminism. In a tub of jelly.
Seriously though, I'm hooked and if you're in Australia, it's on ABC and clearly people are putting it online. I encourage supporting the ABC's broadcasting of the show. I've now had numerous conversations about the content and I hope you will too!

New Zealand friends - since I'm on the air this Monday from 9-12, I thought of playing nothing but NZ and Australian tunes. Any requests? And certainly, open to anyone else with NZ/Aus suggestions!

oooh!
 
Watch this new short/proof of concept by Irish filmmaker Ruairí Robinson. The Leviathan takes place in the early 22nd century, after humans have colonized multiple worlds, and are now on "the hunt" for a whale-like species that naturally collects the dark matter needed by space drives.  Kewl! How much better if set in the Startide Rising universe, though?
'The Leviathan' by Irish filmmaker Ruairí Robinson is the best three minutes and 38 seconds you'll spend today.

I'm heading to Melbourne for a short time this week, and here's a little extra for the Patreon supporters.
Hint - it's about the most successful crowd-sourced fundraising campaign outside of the USA, and it's happening in Australia.
