Free Schapelle

Free Schapelle

There is an unfair land called Australia
That gets involved in other peoples’ fights
And masks its motives behind ‘human rights’
While its record in such is abject failure.
Just as they hide aborigine genocide
History and education side-by-side
High priests of information
Have distorted another nation.

MardiGrass Unda Chaos

MardiGrass Unda Chaos

I discovered two of Pipes bush fairies in the Emporium stocking up on brown rice. Tinkerbell clung to me sobbing. “Pipe might die they said and he doesn’t care.” More sobbing. Apparently they found him halfway back from the patch, black with leeches. He’d taken his shirt off to scratch some off his back on the bark of a gnarly tree then got leeches in both eyes and headed back leaving his shirt behind. It was a tragic mistake. “Leeches were marching towards me bleeding back like an army,” he told me.

Leech City Down Unda

Leech City Down Unda

Pipe looks wild and primitive. I’ve never seen him quite like this, flushed and so furious one minute, in tears the next.

It looked like an orgy but he was angry as and that didn’t equate, even for me. To be fair, he was naked on all fours with three golden nymphs climbing all over him.

Undacuva Mind Power

Undacuva Mind Power

How can a simple good idea get out of control so quickly? In a word, Twitter. Or Facebook. What started as a small group of meditators wondering if they could ground the Plantation Squad (PS) turned into a flood once Nimbin hookups got hold of it. The Boss ordered erasure as soon as the alert came in but by then over 300 people had said they’d make it their meditation of the week.

Non Compos Undacuva Takeover

Non Compos Undacuva Takeover

At the Christmas Party he’s looking directly at me with the trademark smirk.“We spend a fortune training Undas to play nutters, and this month we’ve got more weed from the real nutters than you got us all year Bethany. Tell us why we should keep you on the payroll?” In front of everyone. It threw me completely. Even he is confused about who I am. Or am I?

Reaping Gold at Nimbin Prison Farm

New production trials pay off at Nimbin Prison Farm this Spring. Due to the success of Cannabis cultivation techniques, NPF have raised a healthy batch of seedlings now ready to plant out.

NPF struck a major deal with a US based franchise; Need-4-Weed, who will spread the Nimbin Prison Farm brand throughout the 16 states that have approved medical marijuana in the USA. Californian medical marijuana patients are fond of Aussie weed and supply can’t keep up with demand.
