KINDA THINKY DENIAL @ Civic Pub

How awesome is it being a creature of reason, huh?

We bloody love it, and we know you do too. Like you, we’re open-hearted, broad-minded, firm-buttocked and accepting creatures. We judge all arguments on their merits. We reflect on our own biases and let the facts drive them from us when we realise they’re based on evidence-free malarky.

And if you believe that, then we have a nice shiny bridge over Sydney Harbour we’re happy to sell you reeeal cheap.
Denial is everywhere. Denial is productive. Denial is comforting.

Denial is rational as all hell, but it is also totally, appalling and bowel-looseningly trashing many of the things smart people hold dear.
Sounds like something worth getting kinda thinky about, doesn’t it?

November 12 (2nd Wednesday of the month)
7:30pm (doors open @ 7pm)
Civic Pub, The Whisky Room
$14.30 online or $20 at the door

Event Re-cap

Courtney Love - Live at UC

by OutInCanberra

A small, though excitable crowd gathered at UC Refectory on Saturday night to see one of the 90s most talented and tempestuous stars take the stage. It could be none other than Ms Courtney Love.
