The subconscious is a funny place

A couple of days ago, like many others, I awoke to ABC Radio with news of a Sydney apartment block partially collapsing, apparently due to work on the Lane Cove Tunnel. Interesting thing was, *one* was still adrift in sleepy mode. The first function my erstwhile subconscious did was to randomly shuffle throught it's mossy memory circuits and sample the
'heugh' David Byrne vocal bit from Talking Heads "Road to Nowhere". Quickly followed by an arresting visual of Melbourne General Cemetery as Peter Lalors grave & associated marble mausoleums disappeared from view with startling cartoon POP sound effects. As I said, the subconscious is a funny place. Was it passing political comment upon the proposed tunnel linking the Eastern and Tullamarine freeways? Ahem. Other news - I have a pair of Salsa crosslevers. Spiffing! And, this is up. Finally. That was a very long website gestation. Must train properly now & eat more bananas. Or imbibe more fine Goat beer.

Why why why
Now here's a heap of stray ephemera:: Want to attend Bicycle Victoria's 2005 AGM? Then please RSPV by CoB today (Friday) and get those Proxy Votes faxed in by 8pm Saturday.
:: Melbourne: Protest against new freeways: Join the Coalition for People’s Transport protest outside the VECCI summit, when proposals for new freeway projects will be released.

:: International Critical Mass round-up
:: Scotland Yard plans to treat Critical Mass a organised crime. Until now, the ride has enjoyed benign policing designed to minimize its impact on other traffic. But last month, officers - themselves on bikes - handed out leaflets explaining that, in future, if the Metropolitan police was not informed in advance about the ride, then it would be deemed an "unlawful demonstration" and participants "liable to arrest". This Friday will be the first test of the "get tough" stance. . .
