Web Wonder of the Week

Hi sunset types - this weeks treat from the www comes to us from My Barbarian - a Los Angeles based arty hippy tripper band outfit with a theatrical style and an apparent taste for fantasy.

You can find out all about them on their site at You can find the video for the song (Unicorns L.A) on the video page. - it's a biggish file (27.16 MB for the big one, 3.88 for the smaller) but worth it (I think).

(Thanks to Jo for this one)

By the way, anyone who was listening last week and was wondering about Zero_Wing_Rhapsody, the mash up of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and All You Base, you can find it here, in glorious bodgy Flash animation -

The RiotACT

This is perhaps some kind of weird cross-promotion as I've already plugged this blog over there but if you're interested in what's going on around Canberra and getting a range of views about it (some better thought out than others perhaps - but you know what they say about opinions - everyone has one) then you might like to check out The RiotACT at

Hello world

Hi 2xx listeners and general web ramblers and welcome to Monday Sunset - the bloggy interactive part of my show (soon to feature actual content :) on a Monday arvo (4 - 6 pm) on community radio 2xx (98.3fm) in Canberra.

In this space I plan to put up my playlists (in case you were wondering what the hell that track was and I forgot to back-announce it) as well as general rants and raves on the state of the world and particularly web stuff, media and pop culture.

Please feel free to have your say as well - leave some feedback, join any discussions that might come along and so on and so forth. I do reserve the right to remove anything outrageously offensive and wrong, legally iffy, spammish etc but will do my best to preserve free speech.

I've been having a bit of a trawl through some of the new stuff that has come into the station so far this week and you can look forward to some smart cool Melbourne hiphop from The Speakeasies as well as some rather strange Japanese girl pop-rock from Ni-hao. (Of course, given that the first chance I'm going to have to promote this blog is during the show itself, I may have already played this - anyways, you get the drift).

Ok, well I hope you enjoy(ed) the show and keep on tuning in
