Here's a theory: throughout their lives, people mostly remember their teenage years and early twenties. People who control the content in the media are usually in their mid to late thirties or early forties. When these people run out of new ideas, they look to the period in their lives they remember the most. Therefore, retro revivals are usually from 15 - 20 years ago. That means we're just about to leave the 80s and move into the 90s. Nathan has a post on his blog here with a 90s theme. Petstarr has a post here about dreading the return of the 90s. For those still in the 80s, Spoz has some suggestions here.

Last week saw the signing of Adelaide band Wolf and Cub to the UK label 4AD. 4AD is best known as The Pixies' record label, but has also has had releases from such bands as The Birthday Party, Lush and The Breeders. The Remote Control Records website has more on the signing here. Some Wolf and Cub tracks can be heard on their myspace site here.
If you went to a No Through Road gig from late 2004 to mid 2005 you would probably have heard that the slightly mournful song 'ive forgotten how to make you cum' had reached number 3 in the Triple J Net 50. No Through Road has just released an album, Lo-Fi Sandwich, which can be downloaded from the No Through Road website here. Matt from No Through Road has a blog here. Noranna has some photos of No Through Road here.

Apparently shoes on power lines means there is a drug dealer in the area. It serves as both an advertisement and a warning to other drug dealers to keep off their turf. Well, it seems Adelaide has had an explosion in the number of drug dealers advertising lately. I've seen at least 3 pairs on Magill Road. Alternatively, you could believe that it's all an urban myth. More sightings of shoes on power lines and some explanations can be found on the adelaidians journal here. Nathan has a photo of some shoes on the St Bernard's Road power lines here. The Snopes entry on shoes on powerlines is here and the Straght Dope entry is here.

On the weekend I rode my bicycle from the city to the Kensington Road Lookout. Well, when I say rode I mean rode, rested, walked, rested, rode, rested, walked and then rode the final 100m so I could pretend to people at the top that I rode the whole way. I'm not used to much physical exercise and when I got to the top my arms and legs were shaking. There wasn't much to rest the camera on, but I was able to take this photo. Next time I'll have to bring a tripod in my backpack...
Some other people who have written about their weekend:
Samela Harris has written a post here about speaking at the South Australian Writers Festival
Ms Cynic has written a post here about the Bugg'n hip hop show at the Shores Complex.

Jeremy Gilley, the man who convinced the U.N. to fix the date of International Peace Day on September 21 and emphasise it as a day of global cease-fire, has been often quoted as saying 'If you build a house, you start with one brick. If we want to build peace, why not start with one day?'. This is a good analogy, especially once you ignore that to build a house, before starting with one brick, you need to have money/get a loan, find and buy a block of land, get a conveyancer, have a building plan, get approval for the building plan, prepare the land and build a foundation. The third annual Adelaide Peace Festival, which commemorates the International Day of Peace, is on this Sunday from 12pm to 8pm in Light Square. Zane has written a post on the Festival here. dB has an article about the Festival here. The Adelaide Peace Festival website is here. The U.N.'s page on International Peace Day is here. Luigi Funesti-Sordido has written a post about the deportation of peace activist Scott Parkin here.
