Got swooped on the ride to work this morning. Welcome to magpie season officially #Brisbane ✨

Masked Lapwing (Vanellus miles) chick only a day or so old at #University of Queensland. Interestingly there was only the one chick, and the single parent (who was quite chill about me lying on the ground taking pics, but would call for the chick if it wandered too far).

Bananaland review – Kate Miller-Heidke’s new musical comedy is a miraculous joy https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2023/sep/21/bananaland-review-kate-miller-heidke-queensland-performing-arts-centre-brisbane-festival #music #Brisbane #Queensland #Bananas
Sorry but charging us $24.37 each for public transport to the #Brisbane airport is ridiculous. It's literally way cheaper to get an Uber. When I am prime minister I will simply make it free 🤷
#brisbane summer has arrived. 30°C at 50% humidity in my office. Aircon is on.
I took a thermal photo of my window and ceiling. Looks like most of the heat is coming through the ceiling. I've got some foam insulations panels downstairs, I'll chuck them between the roof and ceiling and see if that helps.
Finding Inner Strength, Wisdom and Compassion
The Buddhist teachings show us how to find a deep sense of fulfilment that doesn’t depend on outer circumstances and is naturally ours. Through reflection and meditation, all our experiences – happy or sad, good or bad – become a source of personal growth and spiritual awakening: they have the potential to open our eyes and our heart, and make us grow wiser and more compassionate.
“A world premiere showing at QPAC’s Cremorne theatre from Thursday September 21 to Thursday September 23, Hide the Dog highlights the power of First Nations’ culture, following a journey of two besties Niarra and Te Umuroa, who while out playing in the bush, just another day in paradise, glimpse what can only be the world’s last Tasmanian Tiger. Dodging hunters, Niarra and Te Umuroa set sail for Aotearoa to hide their new friend. But hunters aren’t the only ones on this Tiger’s tail. They’ll have to outwit Māori gods and palawa spirits to save their furry friend.
“This Performing Lines production is directed by Isaac Drandic (Noongar) on a rich sound design by Maaka McGregor and stunning costumes by Sabio Evans. Co-written by Tasmanian playwright Nathan Maynard (pakana) and Aotearoa writer Jamie McCaskill (Māori), Hide the Dog is a truly trans-Tasman creation boasting a heart-warming tale, and is a celebration of true friendship that intrepid explorers of all ages will delight in. If you’re looking for a family-friendly outing – it’s right here! Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at the QPAC website.
Oz police see ‘Hindu hand’ in temple graffiti, advise closure
Australia’s Queensland state police have released documents of its investigation into the defacement of a Brisbane temple’s outer wall, which suggest that they are ready to close this matter after getting no more leads from the complainants and there seems a “Hindu hand” in the anti-Modi graffiti that was done on the night of March 3 but blamed on pro-Khalistan elements.
I'm not generally one for nostalgic old hits type live #music shows, but the #NickMason Saucerful of Secrets gig in #Brisbane tonight was a blast. Highlights were Nile Song (rock!), Vegetable Man (any Syd is a win for me), Candy & a Current Bun (including some of the original Let's Roll Another One lyrics), a corker Echoes & a stonker rendition of Saucerful of Secrets. Top it off, my 5 & 2 year old boys didn't destroy their grandma's house during the babysit. Win! #PinkFloyd
Toowong is ten minutes away by car, but 40 minutes away by public #transport , because there's no way of getting there other than going into central #brisbane and back out again. (Actually, you can go up to Milton and catch a bus that runs every hour but no). Public transport is great here as long as you only want to go into Brisbane. Anything else is almost impossible. (I'd make the 375 go to Toowong personally)
Does anyone have any tips for a classic hits radio station that isn't 4BH? I'm a little tired of the right wing leaning news reports (I think channel 9 does the news coverage?)
We have the radio on for Lucy and it's just nice to have something familiar to sing along to. But at the same time 4BH needs to update their song list because the programming is a bit samey.
(We play over Google home so digital is ok too!)
“The Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk last week announced a $134 million investment to build 200 new buses in Queensland. But most will be diesel.” https://thedriven.io/2023/09/17/queensland-to-spend-134m-on-new-buses-most-will-be-diesel/ #brisbane
Ray is #1 in his slot, so I wonder how much of this is a vanity "live and local" play - it clearly isn't driven by audience figures, unless, of course, Ray's demographics are out of kilter of the station's.
The para that hit me hardest:
"Call it 'Australia syndrome', the relationship that non-Indigenous people have with the land. The culture shock of being on Aboriginal land, the clash of fantasy and reality. Where are we?"
Made me think of the time an Aussie writer I love used the "north wind" as a synonym for cold. Made me think of the men in Santa suits melting in the summer heat. Where are we?
Here's the latest variant picture for Queensland, Australia.
The EG.5.* "Eris" variant (49%) became dominant during August, replacing "Deltacron" XBC.* (19%).
Sample volumes seem representative up to August 29.

Tomorrow (Fri 15th), from 1-3pm and beginning in Queens Gardens, there'll be a rally for climate change led by School Strike 4 Climate. All welcome!
The following didnt make the cut, Herrerasaurus, Condorraptor, Leonerasaurus, Gasparinisaura, and Manidens.
They will be on my list for a later build. But I wont get to them before the exhibit leaves #Brisbane.
It toots a 10-frame gif of the Mt. Stapylton rain radar every five minutes. They auto-delete after two weeks if not boosted, pinned or favourited.
Please let us know if you have any cool ideas for improvement! All the code is licensed under GPLv3 here: https://github.com/tjhowse/bomgifbot
I put some work into making it easy to fire up your own instance using a fly.io free tier.
Again, a boost from someone on bne.social would be fantastic!
Would any #brisbane dwellers interested in a mastodon bot that posts regular gifs of the Mt. Stapleton rain radar? That sounds like it could be a fun project.
I'm tooting this on a private instance, so a boost from someone on bne.social would be appreciated for the visibility. Cheers!
Would anyone in the fediverse have use for this massive 120mm DeepCool CPU air cooler? Fits Intel LGA 1700 1200 1151 1150 1155 + AMD AM4. Nothing fancy but it cools very decently and it lights up pretty colours. Free if you can just pay postage. Or local pickup from Ferny Hills. #Brisbane :BoostOK:
Just #brisbane things: Police on the north end of the Kurilpa Bridge with a radar pinging riders coming down the hill too fast
The gas industry is advertising themselves as "Australia's future" on the side of the same #Brisbane Council buses we had to retrofit to diesel because the gas ones kept exploding.
