  1. BY JANUARY this thinking had coalesced into resolve, resolve into a plan.


    My mind and heart set. To honour Ginny I would use my share of her inheritance to follow my own dream, while I still could. I would take the rest of the year. I would target three months.

    One Summer then, to travel to all those overseas festivals that had long coloured our wistful talk, that like wind-caught pennants had long snapped in our imagination, fierce and proud.

    The northern hemisphere's Summer Festivals: the Himalayas of the dance scene world: camped: open-air: multi-day: many staged: thousands thronged: still underground: still free from the taint. I would chase my own dream, write my own ending, close my own chapter. I would be extraordinary one final time.

    As the plan became real, I shared it first with my family. I told them I was travelling to festivals to write a book, but I had no idea if I could do such a thing. If such a book would be at best boring, at worst incoherent. I kept these doubts to myself.

    I pushed them back and down with all the others and stored them in a little globe. When no-one was around I would bring the globe out and shake it and see them fly about like snow.

    What did it matter anyway? Anywhere but here, that was my creed.

    With surprising equanimity my family reacted. That is they didn’t react. They believed. They supported. They helped. Perhaps they understood it was a way for me to work through my grief. Perhaps they were numb to my deranged schemes by now—after all, not for nothing did Mum to call me up out of the blue one day to say, “Hi Izzy. You well? You eating your veges? Good. Good. Listen, I think you might be Bipolar.”

    (I'm not, by the way, just a dreamer of great dreams . . . with little follow through.)

    In any event, they didn’t try and talk me out of it.

  3. Hi everyone,

    I've been hard at it over the past month fine-tuning the community and sorting out a few bugs, but during that time, there's been a few new things that have been added!  So its time to update you on what has been added to the site since my last update.


    The setup has changed a bit, and we now have Contributors.  Contributors are members who are actively out there almost (and sometimes actually) every weekend capturing the music scene and posting it up on here for you!  They are reviewers, writers, and photographers who are volunteering their time to go to bars, clubs, events, and festivals just to let you know about whats going on!  They're also finding the latest music and albums and telling you about them!

    We are on the lookout for Contributors, so if you think you have the passion to be out amongst it, capturing those moments on proverbial paper, we would love to hear from you!  We are especially looking for enthusiastic writers and photographers in all regions of Australia who are willing to volunteer their time on weekends to go out and socialise while at the same time contributing to the community! By being a Contributor, you will not only get access to various venues and events, but you will get your works seen by many people every week!
    Members can apply to become a Contributor by visiting and clicking on "Apply".

    News and Reviews

    Now that we are starting to get Contributors on-board, you will start to see News and Reviews from our writers appear on the site under the News menu!  You can choose from local news, international news, music and event reviews, and lifestyle articles!  Watch this space for the articles to start coming in thick and fast!


    Are you a producer or DJ and want to get yourself heard?  We have a new service called Musicbox, which gives Gold Members unlimited storage where they can upload their original works, remixes, and mixes to Ozclubbers and the general public can listen to them while on the site or download them from the community! Gold Members can even list their own Artist profile on the site!  We are also trialling an option where unsigned producers who have original works can sell their works via Ozclubbers!
    Annual Gold Membership subscription is available HERE to all members.  


    We have fine-tuned our Events Calendar system to include Music Genres, a URL for purchasing tickets, and even a Facebook event URL field!  This allows people to search for your event, such as based on the music genre you select!
    We are working on the location information section of events, as its not automatically picking up some venues, but if this is the case, when adding the location to your event, we suggest you list both the venue name AND its address in the Address line, which will allow Google Maps to identify it.


    If you are a regular on the Forums, you can now add your own Signature to any posts you make!


    The first few weekends worth of photos have just started to appear now!  We are still looking for budding enthusiastic photographers who would like to get out and amongst it every weekend, so if you think this is you, and you have a reasonably decent camera, head over to and click on "Apply".

    Inactive Members

    If you haven't been on the site yet, but have an account, now is a great time to get on!  To make sure that people have reasonable access to usernames (which you can change a couple of times a year), inactive members will be deleted from the community after a year!  But don't fret, you will get plenty of warning, with a reminder email every 3 months leading up to it, and then one last one just before its deleted.

    Custom shortened URLs

    Following on from the previous point, we will be introducing custom URLs for your membership profile soon, based on your username.  Keep an eye out for this!

    Staff list

    You can now see who the administrators, moderators, and contributors are by accessing the Staff page from the "More" menu!


    That's all from me for now!  Once again, thanks for being part of the Ozclubbers community and see you online!
