Whiney Post Day .

So March 17th is Whiney Post Day according to Klepsacovic so here is my whine.

Mwhahahaha    I get to Whine 1st ( or get to be one of the first whiners.) See international time difference  has it’s advantages.

Whine #1  Why does everything interesting happen when I am asleep!

I have a list of things I could whine about, and  they are not about WOW – feel free to tune out.

Beer – a pub with no Guinness on St Patrick’s day .  ( They serve only Aussie beer,  but their Food is awesome and well worth the hill to walk up.. )

Edit! – They had Guiness!   ( in cans though..  beggers can’t be choosers.. )  and Blood Sausage

The state of the Internet censorship in Oz, and like Cassandri from Hots & Dots  I worry about what it will do to my gaming,   plus there is the Lack of 18+ rating on games and that stuff like  Facebook shut down the Grow Up Australia –  Pro-R18 Game rating group with almost 37k Members happens and really makes you wonder what the definition of democracy and free speech really is, and that I agree with Tobold that the internet is getting less “inter”  as people try and control  the internet to protect people from what is ‘bad’  but really what is damaging to their individual profits, and I worry that the advancement of human civilisation will become stunted as what is supposed to be a tool to share our ideas &  culture, the tool that  connects people world-wide will die as countries put their citizens behind electronic fences.

That Gamers for Croydon  our Political party with a Gamer friendly platform are running in our SA state elections, and I really hope that they get someone in,  and then consider running a candidate for  our Federal election next year.  However the Politician they are running against,  Atkinson said  ” “I assume the Gamers4Croydon campaign will involve criminal activities and dirty tricks, which is what I’ve come to expect from gamers,” and  I feel he is really out of touch with Gamers,  and people in general to have made such a narrow-minded statement.

 That a Gamer themed bar  Mana Bar  is in another state  – Bring one to Sydney! and traveling interstate just to go to a bar might be a little silly. But they have gamer themed cocktails…

That  Books are expensive if you buy them in Australia. So I ❤ Book Depository  ( Free postage!)  Except they come in single white packages and if I do a bulk order I have to collect a  pile of packages from the post office. That they can sell paperbacks of Australian Authors in  Australian Stores for $26 Aus – and wonder why more people don’t buy books or we are looking overseas for our reading pleasures.

 That I keep finding new music I like on Itunes and because I belive in paying for my music  It’s putting holes in my credit card –   Leafshine ! Thankyou for Introducing me to Marina and the Diamonds – so friends are being subjected to my outbursts of ” I am not a robot”    Though I suspect Marina’s song Rootless would apply more to Leafshine being a druid and such. “Running with my Roots pulled up”  is my favourite line from that song and every time I hear it I think of a Druid in tree form holding it’s roots running.  ( Wow on brain even when listening to music  /Sigh)

Other people recommending music to me is important because  I do not subject myself to what counts as radio anymore.

That I don’t sing as much as I used to ><  I miss my singing lessons but it became a toss-up between putting money into more productive places. I don’t miss the breathing exercises,  or putting pieces of icky red wine cork in my mouth to get the space right in my jaw  – it does make the sound quality a lot better though.

I can whine about my mother being on facebook – My mother Pm’s me to  ask me about my Status.  There are several reasons why parentals should not be on Social Media sites ( hides photos of my fishnet stockings)  I had to explain said Pseudo Pop Cultural reference status update refered to.

Of course I friended my mother.  I mean If I can friend some random from childhood who on her last day of school in year 3  said to me ”  I’m not your friend anymore”  ( yes I remember…  )  I can friend my own mother and family , but they aren’t supposed to read into the mental state of my facebook statuses,  It’s like people reading my blog to understand my brain.   I should be grateful she didn’t comment on the post or it’s possible to have ended up on Failbooking

So what constitutes a whine? Long rambling thoughts? – Over sharing of feelings and real life stuff? Did I have enough material to whine about?  I blog to perpetually whine.


1. To utter a plaintive, high-pitched, protracted sound, as in pain, fear, supplication, or complaint.2. To complain or protest in a childish fashion.3. To produce a sustained noise of relatively high pitch

Ohhh I might have to record a Whine so you can get the full effect. Whining with an Aussie Twang shall not be pleasant.

* breathes…

thankyou for listening  Lasting

    Your books are overpriced, your games are restricted or banned; is Australia capable of not screwing up any media?

      I don’t know 😦 our national broadband scheme to provide faster net access seems to keep hitting hurdles too 😦

    What new groups have you found through itunes? i have been using Microsoft’s Zune Marketplace and just recently got itunes. And as long as i’ve been reading this blog i somehow never seemed to notice you were in Australia.

      I had a list! and I deleted them from the post because it wasn’t meant to be about flashing my current play list but since you asked nicely 😛 I like Folk/Rock/Doom metal/Goth Opera type styles, so am devouring bands like Angtoria, Bare infinity, Deadlock, Midnattsol, Poets of the fall, Chris Cornell, Pythia, I already listen to Sirenia, Damien Rice, Florence +the machine, Nightwish, Lucuna Coil, Apocalyptica, Atrocity, Edenbridge, Breaking Benjamin, Catpower, Cruxshadows, Epica, Jack Off Jill

      I guess also Wow isn’t supposed to be about being Aussie, I sneak an Oi Oi Oi like post in, it’s just been a little more featured lately due to our Internets issues.

    I hear ya on the pubs with no Guinness. Fox & Lion in Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter is another one who had only bad news for us on Paddy’s Day. Bleh.

    OMG Mana Bar is in Brisbane? I had no idea! How shameful that I haven’t been…

    I remember watching an in depth book industry Q&A (I think it was on ABC’s Q&A) and the ridiculous cost of books in Australia is something to do with publishing and law. Possibly both. When books are released in UK, USA and Australian editions it almost always works out cheaper for the retailer to import the US or UK edition and do a currency conversion than sell the AUS edition at RRP.

    I don’t know what’s going on, but something is messed up there. It’s meant to protect the publishers and Australian booksellers I believe. Most authors are strongly opposed to the pricing plan because it means that less of their books get into reader’s hands.

    Yay for local libraries. And the Book Depository is absolutely awesome too.

      Oz publishers have a monopoly on some titles and exclusive selling rights , they tried to allow Parallel import of books by law recently, but there was massive Hoo haa about it affecting local authors and that they would lose money. I remember the writing community was very much on board with keeping the restriction – though the loudest voices were the people making money off it, not the indie authors who would love just to get their work out there. The reality is when I finish my book.. ( when I stop procrastinating) I will be better off going OS to get published. Oz publishers don’t pick up too many local authors because of the cost and small market. ( we are even having issues with titles available on E- readers due to those Parallel import restrictions – so yeah fun times.. we really seemed to have screwed up our media here in oz as Klep points out

    “Is Australia capable of not screwing up any media?”

    Consider it a national hobbie, at least that is how it appears when you listen to the politicians.

    It’s not democracy or free speech when it’s owned by Facebook. Ever read their TOC? It’s really scary….

  8. 13 Conveyancing quote June 14, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
