Tunnels
Mon, 7th Nov, 2005 16:00

I've heard the best graffiti in Adelaide is to be found in underground tunnels around the city.  I've also heard that during the war, people in Adelaide hid their valuables in underground tunnels and as they forgot to remove them, the valuables remain in the tunnels to this day.  I tend not to believe the second story.  I've looked for the entrance to the Kent Town tunnel, but haven't been able to find it yet.  On the weekend i saw what looked like the entrance to a tunnel in St Peters, but it was getting dark and I was too afraid to get too close.  I don't think i'll ever be a Goonie.  Phil Davis has some photos of and information about underground tunnels in Adelaide here. The Adelaide branch of Cave Clan, a group of underground ‘urban explorers’, has a website here.

Photos of Adelaide
Thu, 3rd Nov, 2005 11:00

I wouldn't go as far as to say the Government is lying, but the timing and importance of the latest terrorist threat does seem terribly convenient.  Tim Dunlop has more on the announcement on his blog here.  DenizenGT has a post here about the effects of terrorism warnings from his perspective as a Muslim living in Adelaide.  Another group affected by the alert but not alarmed state of the public is the group of people who take photographs.  My most recent experience was of a man asking me why I was taking photographs of buses on Grenfell Street.  He asked if perhaps it was because I really liked buses.  The only answer I had for this question was yes.  The amount of people around with digital cameras seems to be increasing.  Keeping watch of these people is going to be tough.  I have collected some people's photos of Adelaide here.  Adam Trevorrow has a gallery here of some nice photos he has taken of Adelaide. Sparrow has his Adelaide 'Alleyways and Side Streets' photography project here.

A Will of His Own (nybooks.com)
It is hard to find an admirer of J.M. Coetzee's work who does not think that his best book is Disgrace, one of the strongest novels of the last quarter- century and, among other things, a masterpiece of misdirection. It is easier to tell that the novel is a work of great force than it is to be precise about what exactly it is telling us.
