Poem of the Day: Michael Farrell โ€˜Fancyโ€™
I was riding a shark through Cork, just for the exercise of course
It might seem quaint but rather it was
Gorgeous, like an early morning courtyard
Imagine the dialogue. AC/DC confronts shark
shark repeats
shadow prime minister's
Gaffe
You guys are the white Australian Uluru. Fancy, say they
It became noon. An emu
In police uniform joined the fray
'Yair, just wanted to say
G'day?' There was not a logician
In sight, so we rode like the wind
It was the church bells not the emu who rang, the red light
doesn't apply to
You. So long since
I'd heard that said. Another emu
In
Galoshes ran out. 'Forty-five on New Amsterdam'
'Got
It' went a third. We were no longer, say
In the outback
Yet we were thinking of the Magic Pudding: his slices packed
with
Grey sardines
In silver tins

"There was not a logician In sight ..... It was the church bells not the emu who rang" Rather apposite, to say nothing of timely.

The oils track bushfire is pretty fucken relevant right now isn't it yjimbo๐Ÿค™

I would guess that's "jazz poetry"

A bit of a summation of what was 2019 for me. Some great projects and collaborations and all, gigs, recordings, some left out accidentally. Still a way to go. Honour your creativity sounds like a cliche but could be inserted as a comment here. Thanks to all that were part of it. ... See MoreSee Less

From the Dog last December to seeing you in Birdsville, what a 12 months it’s been as a fan. Have a lovely festive season and I look forward to catching up again in 2020 ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

“Honour your creativity” A great line that makes sense of that dogged determination so many of us have. It explains a lot about many of my friends, and myself for that matter. Thanks Jim. I’ll always remember that. Many of us have it to the extent of being Pig Headed and externally it can sometimes almost seem ridiculous, especially when so many artists struggle, but they are just honouring themselves through their creativity. Congrats on a great year. Cheers

2019... What a year for an oil-head!!!! :) Thanks for that...

Pretty damn epic indeed.๐Ÿ‘

What a busy year Jim. Thanks for sharing it with us. Here’s to many more! ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ’›

Then there were the side projects, like helping refugees. What a year, Jim. You make it all look so easy!

Fantastic year and thank you for the music (hang on that was the abba gig ๐Ÿ˜‚) great to see you all playing live again for us in the UK and can’t wait for you and the gang to be back again! Much love x

Have enjoyed following along.

Thanks to you Jim for providing it. I, for one, are truly thankful for your music in my life. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

A country without The Arts is a country without a voice. ๐Ÿ˜”

Your year would be three lifetimes-worth of creativity for anyone else! I can’t wait to see what 2020 will bring.

Thank you Jim. You are a source of beauty and inspiration.

Wow! What a year ๐Ÿ˜… Great to see. ๐Ÿ™

big love my friend it was a pleasure to hang again

Jim Moginie...plays well with others! Thank you for sharing your gift ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ

Epic mate! โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ’œ

Thank you Jim for sharing your gift with us all year long. What a journey! Can’t wait to see what 2020 brings...

It was such a fun following you in Europe this summer, enjoying the music, meeting friends (and making new ones), travelling across Europe. Can’t wait for 2020!

Do you ever rest James.. Love it

Lazy bastard.

Thank YOU ๐Ÿ–‘๐Ÿ–‘๐Ÿ–‘๐Ÿ–‘ It was an absolute Privilege to be there - all because of your foresight, ingenuity, and genious ๐Ÿ˜ Thankyou Mr Moginious ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ–‘๐Ÿ–‘๐Ÿ–‘ P.S. I really Loved the rearrangment of the venue โ˜บ

Wollongong 1974, as a young teenager growing up in Wollongong in '74, I know it well ๐Ÿ˜ Beautiful night, wonderful music. Thanks

Jim thank you so much for a wonderful evening! I am kicking myself for not coming to more of them! I will certainly be supporting my local gallery in the future! I loved the variety and I learnt some interesting things! Satu’s beautiful voice and violin were just amazing! To thank you all for the gifts you give us undervalues all the hard work that comes with honing your craft, so please thank Brian and Satu for sharing that with us, and please consider yourself equally thanked! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

So very cool. Great set, nice banter. Thanks again for the Powdie recco, means so much mate!

Missed you by a week or so...๐Ÿ˜”

Thank YOU! I had no idea what to expect (I’m embarrassed to say it, but I had not done my homework, so to speak). I was blown away! Great event ๐Ÿ˜

Is #11 the REM song?

Have I lost my mind?? I was sure you Played Sukiyaki? Is it under a different name? That & "Heston" (reminded me of Bjork) were my Faves. Very Unique Night! Thankyou! ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽป๐ŸŽผ๐Ÿ™

Bonjour Jim, How is the Oils album recording going? I will send you a demo of our band Hawkins next year. Speak soon, Julien E. Lacave Consulting UFO Paradigm - Neutral Bay.

Thanks Jim, Satu & Brian for being a part of the Manly Arts Festival . Was a treat to hear Paginini 5 on Saturday night. ๐Ÿ–โคโคโค

Renoir. My mum had a Renoir she bought at Farmerโ€™s in the 60โ€™s that looked a bit like this. I thought it was a real one as a kid but Iโ€™m told now it was a reproduction. It doesnโ€™t really matter, I like it despite all of itโ€™s perceived and undoubted inauthenticity. #artiswhatyousee ... See MoreSee Less

Musée d'Orsay, Paris.... Are you in Paris Jim?๐Ÿ˜‰

Maybe it was a sublime and elegant inspiration to be a guitar player

Have you still got it

Renoir is one of my favorite artists of all time!

Beauty is beauty. It’s what’s in the heart that matters ๐Ÿ’“

Farmers lol

We had a Victorian era teapot that mum thought was probably priceless. In reality it’s worth about $500 but we treated it as priceless and still do because it meant so much to her.

jim ... I just came across a goat island clip,we all age

Where's the B3 and Lesley

Love mine too .

We had one at our local church for years. But only one lady knew how to play It and she was from another faith, so we had to “borrow” her. ๐Ÿ˜€

My grandmother, mama Nora had the most incredible oak pump organ. It was part of my childhood fantasy

Beautiful! ๐ŸŽน

I might have a hymnal or two..

I know a harmonium was played on “We Can Work It Out” by The Beatles, but I hadn’t seen one till this pic. Thanks Jim.

Could swear i could hear a piano playing as i walked past to get some lunch.

I’m trying to cut down on my hymnal’s๐Ÿ’“

Awesome show - one of your best (after the domain of course, I think the pain killers took you to another level!)

Nothing wrong with your leg at this show! Not only was it the first time I saw you play Bakerman, but the first time I saw you jumping on stage! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿป

Found the concert on YouTube. Nothing like being there in person, but good enough for those of us who don’t live Down Under.

Jonathan Angus we're both in this pic!

Amazing concert, perfect set list, the best location, definitely an experience I will never forget

Iconic Picture!

What a picture!

One of the best experiences of my life!

Very sorry that I could get out to this show... ๐Ÿ™

Great pic ...love to be there next time ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽธ

Luke again with Kens blue wig- wayne stein\\

Oh Jim what an epic experience this was! And to share it with my son and a great bunch of Powderworkers was the icing on the cake!

I couldn’t believe how many kids were down the front, it was great to see. Hope the Oils manage to write something that will inspire them.

Somebody is looking over your shoulder, I guess.

Hi James. Mixing the new Oils album? Perhaps the unfinished Bird Noises EP... Yep, it needed another 8 tracks of Moginie magic! Enjoy your moment of mindfulness.

Harps are incredible - I’m sure it sounded as good as it looked.

I remember restaurants like this. Harpists are overdue for a comeback.

Can’t see a harp without thinking ...
