At Byron Bay Markets on Sunday 27th

Hi everyone – I’m at Byron Bay craft markets on Sunday.  If you are in Brisbane or closer come on by and say hello.

This is how a local website describes the Byron Bay markets.

“Byron Bay’s craft and produce market, held at the Butler Street reserve on the first Sunday of the month, is one of the best in the region. Covering an area of a few acres and arranged in orderly rows, the market offers a vast array of handcrafted wares, locally-grown produce, and artworks of every kind. It’s best to get there early and allow a few hours to take in all the stalls, indulge in some fresh nourishment and feel the culture.

At the open centre of the market ground is a performance space, where you might see fire-eaters, acrobats, jugglers, dancers, contortionists, escape artists, and musicians of every description. Stallholders, in their eye-catching colourful splendour, are a spectacle in themselves. Rainbows, sparkles and angel wings seem to be the ‘uniform’, making you feel as if you truly are in a magical world.

There is some nearby parking, but because Butler Street is a no-through-road, it is easier to park in town and walk across the railway line to the market. Access across the line at Lawson Street and take the first left into Butler Street, or through the car park at the back of the Byron Visitor Centre and turn right into Butler Street.”

    this is michael. the asian kid who sees you outside starbucks and mt eden foodtown on occasion in auckland. met up with you a few days ago after seeing district 9. im at engineering department atm studying. i was watching “The Sound” music video again, the one by Simon Raby. I’m just blown away by the directorship and the cut scenes on seeing it again. it reminds me a little bit of Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees”. i guess that it takes place in a supermarket and has the whole reincarnation and impermanence and illusion of materialism and post-modernism themes to it. but seriously thats just taking away too much credit to simon and yourself. iv got a ridiculous urge to meet up and rant and discuss the video at 930pm. the whole lighting and shadows effect, illusions, skin care, happiness, and a buske/prophet of the sound and the whole camera angles gives a really intense feeling of urge. probably shouldn be ranting but i was just taken aback upon watching it closely, while listening/watching while studying. I’d be real keen to watch some of simon’s other stuff. i been listening to high risk and reha and keen to get into other of your stuff.

    hope you’re well. what you been up to? flick me a buzz
