So what are the chances? Joe and I are walking down the main road in Killarney this evening. He hears a street musician play one bar of "Waltzing Matilda" down the road to the right. Before we reach him and his crowd, we pass a guy on the left with a tin whistle, looking very street musician-like, and he's playing a counterpoint accompaniment. We chat with said street musician and learn he lives in Germany (20+ years), is in town for a juggling convention, and is from MD. Not just MD, but Silver Spring/Wheaton. Like Kemp Mill. AND he was born 8/1/51. JFK HS class of '69. Oh. Em. Gee.

Starting today we give you a run down on Australian music that you can hear on Radio Sydney. The music of Australia has an extensive history stretching back to the Indigenous and colonial societies. Indigenous Australian music is a part of the unique heritage of a 40,000–60,000 year history which produced the iconic didgeridoo. Contemporary fusions of Indigenous and Western styles (exemplified in the works of No Fixed Address, Yothu Yindi, Christine Anu and Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu) mark distinctly Australian contributions to world music. During its early western history, Australia was a collection of British colonies, and Australian folk music and bush ballads such as Waltzing Matilda were heavily influenced by Anglo-Celtic traditions, while classical forms were derived from those of Europe. Contemporary Australian music ranges across a broad spectrum with trends often concurrent with those of the US, the UK, and similar nations – notably in the Australian rock and Australian country music genres. ...

The Missus asked me a few questions tonight while watching the news i thought id look something up.and the fact that it is Australia day weekend...I was asked what a Waltzing Matlida is - so i said walking around with your swag on your back, that was easy and we like to camp and stuff.but.. Heres some useless info ( Swami Bob ) the song Waltzing Matilda is in fact a 3rd or 4th variation of Banjo Pattersons first lyrics and then adapted for an add in the 1930s BUT IS OWNED BY COPYRIGHT BY AN AMERICAN COMPANY. In fact from what i can see, the Aussie Olympic committee had to pay the American company copy right dollars to play the song at the 1996 Olympic games in Atlanta..TRUE OR FACT either way, pretty funny how we sing about a guy who flogs a sheep and then commits suicide in a dam to get away from the coppers...lol. just putting it out there..or on here, either way the song still gets a good going with a few bevvies and they didnt teach me that stuff at school..
Something trivial about Australia's national anthem. If Australia won a Gold Medal at the Summer Olympic Games in Montreal in 1976, the anthem that would have played is. Waltzing Matilda. But it didn't. Imagine trying to explain a national anthem about a guy who steals a sheep and kills himself to avoid being arrested. (And Matilda is not a person, it is his swag). Advance Australia Fair was not the official anthem for another decade.

A Blonde was sent on her way to Heaven. Upon arrival, a concerned St Peter met her at the Pearly Gates. 'I'm sorry, 'St Peter said; 'But Heaven is suffering from an overload of goodly souls and we have been forced to put up an Entrance Exam for new arrivals to ease the burden of Heavenly Arrivals.' 'That's cool' said the blonde, 'What does the Entrance Exam consist of?' 'Just three questions' said St Peter. 'Which are?' asked the blonde. 'The first,' said St Peter, 'is, which two days of the week start with the letter 'T' 'The second is 'How many seconds are there in a year?' 'The third is 'What was the name of the swag-man in Waltzing Matilda?' 'Now,' said St Peter, 'Go away and think about those questions and when I call upon you, I shall expect you to have those answers for me.' So the blonde went away and gave those three questions some considerable thought (I expect you to do the same). The following morning, St Peter called upon the blonde and asked if she had considered the questions, to which she ...

Driving north today we hit the Tropic of Capricorn but we didn’t feel much of a bump. The outback is very dry and hot and tourists have all gone home to the south – except for the inexperienced who are in our car. We passed through Waltzing Matilda country along the Barcoo and towns with evocative names like Cunnamulla (‘long water’), Charleville, Blackall and now Longreach where we have a cabin over the road from a Boeing 747 and a 707 parked on the side of the highway and we are next door to the Stockmans Hall of Fame. Maybe tomorrow we might play at being bushrangers or stage drivers.
