Who remembers this incredible hit song (http://www NULL.youtube NULL.com/watch?v=Z3JycmdhmI4)? It was the height of ’90s Australian house-techno. I suggest you open it in a new window, press play, then read the following acrostic and acrimonious garbage:
Sydney, this is a love letter–
Yes, within you we had our first event for New South Wang-alang-alang.
Don’t forget we had help to make it better,
Nefariously supported by Find Your Yang (http://findyouryang NULL.com/)-alang-alang.
Everybody who came was very good-looking,
You should be proud of your collective off-spring-aling-alang.
But! When will you see us again?
Another time, another time.
Never trust a man named Ben,
At the event he drank too much wine.
Not really, I made that bit up,
And I did it just to rhyme.
Special thanks to Notemaker.com.au (http://notemaker NULL.com NULL.au/) for providing the beautiful Rhodia notebooks everyone received on the night — especially the one I tainted with the draft of this terrible poem.
Oh, not to mention Mel Peters, Andrea Nixon, and Cameron Hoelter for imparting their valuable advice.
Um, I just really wanted to have ‘SOUP’ as this part of the acrostic poem.
Probably shouldn’t have said that — just blew my cover. See you in Melbourne next week everyone!
