Rubénerd Show 322: The reading into Straya episode (01/27/16)

52:35 – Anyone will tell you it’s a prison island, hidden in the summer for a million years. Happy Australia Day with this discussion of what should be the anthem, Captain Cook, our native peoples, where we all live, cliché Australian tourism advertising, Outback Steakhouse, and humbling flights over the desert. Topped off with a Midnight Citizen-inspired discussion on rapidly fading music and book retail (Coconuts, Borders, Angus & Robertson, Tower Records, HMV in Singapore, the magical late 1990s), and the darn space all those books and DVDs take up. Released late because work has been tough, hope it was worth it!

Recorded in Sydney, Australia. Licence for this track: Creative Commons Attribution 3.0. Attribution: Ruben Schade.

Released January 2016 on Rubénerd and The Overnightscape Underground, an Internet talk radio channel focusing on a freeform monologue style, with diverse and fascinating hosts.

  2. I got rid of all my DVD boxes and now keep them in CD books. It saves a ton of room, makes it much easier to retrieve them, etc. The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages, imo.

    Outback Steakhouse is huge here in the states and SO delicious. Don’t care if you have Blooming Onions over there or not, they rule here. And that sauce…. drool.
