The Full Catastrophe – 26th February 2011

 Words are but wind that do from men proceed;
    None but Chamelions on bare Air can feed;
    Great men large hopeful promises may utter;
    But words did never Fish or Parsnips butter.

A day like no other ending with edition #146 of TFC.

It started with me opening my eyes in Hobart and feasting on the vista of the River Derwent, Mount Wellington and the city from the lounge of a friend’s place.

From there, after three cups of tea, it was off to Salamanca and the incomparable Machine Laundry Cafe via a couple of second hand book purchases.

Then it was on the plane and back to Melbourne with my visiting brother in tow.

And while TFC was on the air and online, he was re-living one of the favourite films of his youth at the Astor, Lawrence of Arabia.

I was left to do the show which started with some archival naughtiness!
