One enormous project that has been underway at UQ and several other Halls of Academia is one by the name of AUSTLIT. The site tells us this:

AustLit is a non-profit collaboration between twelve Australian Universities and the National Library of Australia providing authoritative information on hundreds of thousands of creative and critical Australian literature works relating to more than 100,000 Australian authors and literary organisations. Its coverage spans 1780 to the present day.

I am not actually writing about AUSTLIT. I am writing about 2 of the researchers involved in the Project.  Peter Knox and Dr Clay Djubal.

I am not actually writing about them either. Not in any Intellectual manner. I am inclined to honour them instead for their baking abilities.  Dr Djubal arrived at The Cottage on The Hill one fine day all the way from Brisbane and supposedly for a hard day’s work with Peter.  He was, in fact, bringing SCONES. With cream and jam. The lads did appear to deal with some degree of business activity but the highlight was MORNING TEA. Peter is a BAGEL baker but failed to produce any on this occasion. BRAINY, BEAUTIFUL and gifted BAKERS.

About HGWT

Originally founded in Armidale (NSW) as S.T.D. Music, Hire and Promotion (1983) by Clay Djubal, Have Gravity Will Threaten (HGWT) is an independent specialist publisher of music, plays, poetry and images from writers, musicians, composers, bands and photographers who emerged out of the New England region of New South Wales during the ‘pub rock’ era of the 1970s and 1980s. After being based in Sydney during the mid- late 1980s HGWT was re-established in Stafford Heights (Brisbane) in 1993.

WOT ABOUT SCRUBBY ?

Well the Bill just heard that mebbe Scrubby won’t be playing at the Club anymore. Looks like the Bill won’t be going down those Fridays. He likes the Scrub same as a whole lot of other people do. In fact O Fans of the Scrub and the Hillbillies – Why not give the Club a call and ask for the Scrub to come back. Some changes is good changes and some changes ain’t. The switch to Friday Nights is one thing. It is however , I am sure, meant to be an upgrade not a downgrade. Or even a sidewise grade.

BRING BACK OUR SCRUBBY !!!

says the BILL. 

WHY IS HE GONE ?

HE LOVES US !

WE LOVE HIM !
