Sirena Tuna healthy international students blog

Sirena tuna is an Italian tuna which you can buy at all Coles and Woolworths. Here I tried a tuna melt at Flinders st and it was really good. Here Sirena Tuna encourage people to eat healthily by providing free melts.  I enjoy the tuna in my salads and pasta. This tuna is light and quite fresh. It was $1 from my local IGA.

Some of my favourite runner snacks by Akira healthy international students blog

Thanks to Coles for the giftcard in which we can spend at any Coles store or online.

For this article, we picked snacks which are healthy and meet the runners needs. Coles is a chain store all over Melbourne and Australia. For those that live overseas, you can find these items at Coles.

InstagramCapture_c358c1cc-2ed9-4d18-8970-5aea53ff59ae.jpg

Bagels

These snacks are high in carbs and therefore they are good for runners. Top it up with banana even better.

I enjoy the ABE bagels very much.

Banana
I know you can get this anywhere but I sometimes buy it at Coles just for convenience. They are packed with energy and potassium.

Yoghurt

I love all sorts- its even better...

The best Australian music festivals you dont need to leave the city for "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

We love a camping festival as much as the next person, but sometimes you just want to soak up a bunch of music without having to pile all your gear into a car and drive to a paddock three hours away, and would rather a short train ride.

Besides, there are plenty of great music festivals going on right in our capital cities, and its easy to overlook them as you start thinking about your next trip to Splendour or Falls.

So, weve collected two of our favourite festivals from every capital city, sticking to a couple of ground rules: were only picking festivals in capital cities (or pretty close by), and weve also tried to stick to festivals that are unique to each city as much as we can (so no Laneway, Listen Out or Gizzfest).

That said, here are some festivals that are worth visiting a whole new city for.


Brisbane Festival Brisbane

Fireworks over Brisbane

This years Brisbane Festival is bringing a huge list of talent to the city from September 9 30, with a bunch of special gigs including, among many others:

  •  A headline performance from London Grammar hot on the heels of their new album Truth Is A Beautiful Thing
  • Megan Washington giving a special performance with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra
  • Angus & Julia Stone returning to the stage after a long break with their new album SNOW
  • Melbourne hard-rockers High Tension bringing their intense set to the rock-loving Brisbane
  • Australian icons Tex, Don, and Charlie (ie. Beasts Of Bourbon, The Cruel Sea and Cold Chisel) returning for a rare show

And the list goes on, with Ali Barter, The Preatures, Regurgitator, Thelma Plum, Ngaiire, and Ed Kuepper of Aussie legends The Saints playing a bunch of their hits with his new outfit The Aints weve got a list of ten gigs you need to check out right here.

As well as all the music, therell also be a stack of comedy, theatre and art performances flooding into the city, plus some incredible displays like the closing fireworks above, so head to the website to see everything thats happening in Brisbane next month.

The Operatives JPS On Why The Melbourne Electronic Scene Has Gone Global "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

The Operatives JPS On Why The Melbourne Electronic Scene Has Gone Global

A longstanding collective of musicians and curators, The Operatives are one of the foremost names in Australian electronic music, pushing the boundaries of our music scene both here, and overseas.

As the founder and one of the crews chief agents, Jerry Poon aka JPS has been personally responsible for shaping much of the Melbourne electronic scene, and now oversees a collective that include touring, artist management, event management, promotions and a lot of incredible music.

With JPS about to play not one but two sets at the inaugural Pleasure Garden festival in St Kildas Catani Gardens this Saturday, we took the chance to pick his brain about The Operatives, the strength of the local music scene, and the acts we need to keep an eye on.

An idea of what we can expect from JPS twin sets at The Pleasure Garden this weekend

As a promoter, tell us about the Melbourne electronic scene. How healthy is it now, and where do you see it progressing?

Its on a global level of recognition. There are so many crews and labels out now presenting an amazing array of music. Opiuo and crew destroying the US, Good Manners fronting some amazing artists like Kllo, as well as labels Wondercore, Crown Ruler and Stable Music etc. On a bass music front, weve united with crews like Dark Riddim (Dark Ops) and Twisted Audio (The D.O.T) to ensure that the scene stays strong united and healthy.

Its a strange thing that sometimes when music is seen as a commodity, people forget that the core essential element of music is the love of it, how its presented, and that its for the fans and people and I think the crews in Melbourne have an extremely strong grasp of that.

Why is an organisation like The Operatives is so crucial to the Melbourne electronic scene, and Australias?

Perhaps the early beginnings of some of the artists we brought through further influenced some of this generation of young Australian artists that are shining through now. The core of The Operatives is based around the amazing collective who are constantly playing weekly, providing the best music to the city.

Were always happy to offer advice to new crews setting up, and try to link in with others, collaborating for the best outcome for the particular genre of music that is being represented always p...

BuzzConf made it into the Guardian "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

This year was great for media exposure of BuzzConf and we were very lucky that Nicole Eckersley, one of the winners of a free ticket to BuzzConf, is a great journalist who wrote about her time at the festival for The Guardian.

Robotics and 3D by day, music festival by night; this could be the only outdoor gig where youll fight for laptop charger space

Geeks have always loved their outdoor music festivals and in 2015, two Melbourne-based developers Rick Giner and Ben Dechrai kicked off BuzzConf with a lineup of top-tier tech speakers and local music talent.

Its a wide brief theres everything from augmented reality and biotech to space travel. There are plenty of on-site soldering irons and a fleet of 3D printers. Theres also a beer tent stocked with local craft brews and a live act playing each night.

This is a conference designed with inclusivity in mind: of 11 speakers, six are women almost unheard-of in the notoriously male tech industry.

The Martec kept a diary 24 hours at BuzzConf "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Alex Holderness, editor over at The Martec kept a diary of her experience at this years BuzzConf Technology Festival and it makes great reading!

I spent the weekend at Melbourne Technology Festival, Buzzconf with no real clue what to expect.  When I spoke to organisers, Ben and Rick, I liked their vision of turning a conference into a festival. A lot of people on Facebook asked what this festival lark was about, so I decided to keep a diary (for the period of time I was sober..)

Melbournes Old Bar Is Being Swamped With Hilarious Reviews "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Melbournes Old Bar Is Being Swamped With Hilarious Reviews

The internet is a weird and wonderful place, and when a crowd gets involved, it can turn into something pretty special. After all, we all remember that wolf shirt on Amazon that attracted amazing reviews, or that time 60,000 people invited themselves to a fictitious party in Adelaide. Now, it seems, that even music venues arent immune to crowdsourced hilarity.

The Old Bar is a Melbourne bar and venue thats been operating for quite a few years now, and has seen some of Australias favourite bands get their start there. From intimate gigs, to rocking mosh pits, The Old Bar has it all.

Recently though, The Old Bars Facebook page has become home to a wide array of Facebook users who are leaving 5-star reviews of the venue, often accompanied by wild, fanciful stories of events that either have or have not transpired within the confines of The Old Bar.

I once spoke to Joel about gastro, but that was at a different pub, one user wrote. The Old Bar has two great archways, and a mantle above the fire place which is never lit in summer. Sometimes you can spot people reading the subtitles on the tv above the bar while bands are playing, sometimes theres not even any subtitles. Great toilets.

With the number of 5-star reviews closing in on the 500 mark, the question that remains is why? Well, the answer isnt terribly clear, but it has apparently all sprung from local venue bookers personal Facebook page who noted that an awful lot of Melburnians were taking to Facebook to rate their page.

Whether it is part of the joke, or an unspoken part of The Old Bars charm, but an awful lot of the reviews are focusing on the brilliance of the venues bathroom facilities. I get really gd up around 2am when the piss smell starts to waft out of the mens toilets into the beer garden, another user wrote. This place is 5 stars mad.

Check out The Old Bars review page for yourself to get a taste of the madness that is going on.

Brisbane Writers Festival 2016 "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Gestures of bafflement: DY on The Art of Reading (Photo: Dani Taylor)
Last week was the Brisbane Writers Festival, and I hauled myself up north to suffer the indignities of warmth, sunshine, good company and some amazing food.

As always, the hotel offered me an abundance of pillows (not Wi-Fi). I finally figured out what to do with them.
Fort Pillow, Brisbane
My BWF began with the opening night launch on Thursday, which included a fantastic speech from University of Queensland (UQ) Provost Joanne Wright. I skipped the launch speech from US novelist Lionel Shriver to write, but you can read it here. For the record, and contra Shriver, I believe good writing does often 'honour reality', including the experiences of others unlike ourselves. Contra some of her critics, I believe this is a reason to write well (which is shorthand for an enormous moral and aesthetic task), not to shrink from the challenge, or chastise others for even trying.

My first gig on Friday was 'Everyday Philosophy', my workshop. Smaller this year, it involved some excellent discussion -- particularly on cultivating philosophy in the classroom, and the tensions...

Kiama Readers Festival "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"


Last week I travelled to New South Wales' southern coast for the inaugural Kiama Readers Festival. I was invited to launch the festival, talking about The Art of Reading.

I arrived in the afternoon, and shuffled off to the surf beach for a dip. Tenderised and salted by the waves, I air-dried, cleaned up, grabbed a sushi plate, then headed to my gig.




The library quickly filled and, after an awards ceremony for local writers, I gave my talk. I began with the hunger of Albert Camus: for sea, sun, food, adventure -- and reading. My point was simply that reading is not merely a cognitive pursuit; not somehow opposed to the pleasures of physicality. The same joy of life seeks games and pages.

finding the lost art of human sexuality "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Hello! How is your week so far?

Here we are with just 3 weeks to go until we gather for our 5th year!

Sunday evening
I met with the crew in Melbourne's CBD and we were really pleased to see some of our attendees there as well. No photo's unfortunately - I was having too much fun catching up with everyone.  Hey, you will see us all in, did I mention, just 3 weeks :)

Thank you for the lovely messages regards my previous blog. I was very touched that so many of you took the time to write to me and share your thoughts and experience, it really means a lot.   

I have written another piece, Finding the lost art of human sexuality. Writing is something of a personal journey for me so it's a definitely an edge to share it, but I have to say I am enjoying the process.   I invite you to read it and if it resonates with you, I would love to hear.


The Crew are SUPER excited - as am I :) :) I know many of you are, too and....

Can't wait to see you in November!

Love,

If its meant to be it will work out.  Wont it?  At 37 years old I began exploring what I wanted from sex and relationships.  Prior, I travelled with an expectation that I should know how to be intimate with other people.  Deep down accompanied by competing doses of fear of being alone, and unwillingness to go there.

The Salt Lake Band bring music and culture of Groote Eylandt to Yabun Festival "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

All the way from Groote Eyelandt in the Northern Territory, the 11 member Salt Lake Band will make history next January when they become the largest band to ever grace the stage at Yabun Festival, one of the nations biggest and longest running annual Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music and culture events.

Formally known as Yantarrgna Band (after lead singer/song-writer Brandon Yantarrgna), Salt Lake Band consist of brothers, uncles, cousins and grandfathers, all hailing from the Warnindilyakwa family group.

Were feeling really proud and excited that our mob, Groote Eylandt, Warnindilyakwa mob, from Top End, Gulf of Carpentaria, can have a voice in Sydney at Yabun with all our Koori brothers and sisters, we have never travelled that far from our Island, says Basil Mamarika, a young elder and spokesman of the Umbakumba community and member of Salt Lake Band.

The name of Salt Lake Band springs from a special part of the band members traditional lands, bringing with it their song-lines and Dreamings, all sung in Anindilyakwa language. Mixing rock, blues and reggae, and incorporating the band members totems of dugong, turtle, whale, dolphin, seagull and shark, Salt Lake Bands songs share the sacredness and potency of the Warnindilyakwa Dreamtime.

The Salt Lake Band share a 10 year history and have headlined at several major Indigenous music and cultural events including Garma, Barunga, and the Alice Springs Bush Bands Bash. Based in their home community of Umbakumba (which has a total population of 350 people) the bands language group is distinct from Yolngu, belonging exclusively to Groote Eyelandt.

Proud representatives of their language group and culture, Salt Lake Band have gained the financial support of their own Anindilyakwa Land Council (ALC) to make the long trek to Sydney in order to share their music and culture with the Yabun audience, providing a special added cultural element to the 2017 Yabun Festival which already features esteemed Indigenous artists Kev Carmody and Warren H Williams.

The Top End continues to be such a wellspring of vibrant and unique Aboriginal music and artistry and we are absolutely thrilled to showcase some of that proud legacy and culture at the 2017 Yabun Festival, says Yabun Festival Producer, Miah Wright.

This will be one of the few times that a Top End band has performed at Yabun and is set to be one of the most special moments in the events 15 year history.

Yabun Festival takes places at Victoria Park in Camperdown on January 26, 2017 (10:00am 7:00pm).
