An Open Letter to the Abbott Government

Now I normally don't write letters to politicians, but occasionally some things get my goat so much that I feel obliged to break my own rules. If you feel as I do you're welcome to use my text in your own letter.

The Hon. Tony Abbott, MP Prime Minister of Australia

Senator the Hon. George Brandis QC, Attorney-General
The Hon. Scott Morrison, MP Minister for Immigration and Border Protection

Dear Prime Minister and Ministers

I'm alternately shocked and saddened by the depths to which the Australian Government will plunge in its asylum seeker and refugee policy. I call on you to embrace the fundamental Australian value of a 'fair go' and reverse the un-Australian policies of this and previous governments.


The conditions that asylum seekers are being kept in are worse than those we keep people who have been convicted of the most heinous crimes.

We are now asking refugees to abide by standards of behaviour in regards to harassment, intimidation and bureaucratic compliance that even members of parliament would have trouble abiding by. Any person (citizen, refugee, resident or visitor) who breaks Australian law should be held accountable, but that is the purpose of the criminal justice system.

The worst part is that the 'problems' of boat people, queue jumpers and deaths at sea are largely of our own making. We've restricted the opportunities for people fleeing persecution to apply for a visa and enter Australia by air. We've confiscated boats and imprisoned crew, ensuring that only the most unseaworthy vessels are sailed and then abandoned.

By providing safe, alternative means to seek asylum we could largely eliminate these problems, for example through relaxing visa restrictions in known asylum seeker source countries. Processing asylum applications should be swift, transparent and fair.

Once here refugees should be given the opportunity to integrate into the community and contribute to our economy. The expense of welfare payments for refugees is exacerbated by not letting them work.
These policy measures may or may not be reducing the number of refugee arrivals, but that is beside the point.

This Government and its members have often preached about values and morals. The blatant disregard of individual rights, the despicable treatment of other human beings and the demonisation of a group of people who have few means to fight back all for the purpose of winning a few votes shows us the true morals of this government:

To win at any cost, even if that means selling the souls of the Australian people and condemning others to a hell on earth. 



PS for Ministerial and Departmental Staff: I'm not interested in a pro-forma response or one written by a junior bureaucrat, so please don't send me one.

Herräng Resources

Well I'm officially feeling nostalgic about summertime craziness in a small town in Sweden.

Online News in Australia

With some recent announcements it appears that the number of online news providers in Australia is going up. So (more for my own benefit that anything else - as I want to be able to keep track of the haps back home) I've created a list of online news and current affairs sites in Oz. I'm going to keep things general (so no topic specific sites - e.g. Gawker and publications from Private Media like Smart Company and the AIBM publications like Business Spectator) and electronic (so nothing that also exists in print like The Monthly or the News Ltd. and Fairfax publications).

I'm including sites that feature a paywall - I think that we should pay for quality journalism. If you're a news and current affairs geek like me then you really should subscribe to one (I subscribe to Crikey, mainly for their in-depth work, but choose whatever you want - there's even some you can donate to). I've ordered the sites by their Alexa ranking in Australia.

A Lindy Hop Pentathlon

So it seems my last post got quite the audience in Finland of all places so Tervetuloa!

I spent this weekend watching the ESDC live feed (and getting drunk on Twitter) and it got me thinking about competitions. Specifically some sort of multi-division contest designed to really pick out the best of the best.

What better model than the Modern Pentathlon - with it's mix of running, swimming, shooting, fencing and show jumping. (well okay, perhaps not such a good model - but whatever I like the number 5)

So what should this Lindy Hop Pentathlon contain. Here's my ideas:
  • Social dance/improvisation - Lindy Hop is a street dance and the social dancing is a huge part of the scene and what many competition divisions attempt to replicate. Improvisation (it's a jazz dance) is critical in this.
  • Choreography - Though it is a street dance Lindy Hop achieved fame through iconic choreography like the Hellzapoppin' routine. The ability to choreograph routines is part of what makes someone a great Lindy hopper. 
  • Solo dance - Dogpossum has convinced me that solo dancing is really important if you really want mad skillz. It's also a big part of our current scene and historically important too.
  • Role switching - If you can't do both roles I don't think you can call yourself an advanced dancer. 
  • Icons of Lindy Hop - I also reckon that a Lindy Pentathlon needs some spice, something added to the usual comp divisions, something that represents the Lindy Hop and something that really gets the crowd fired up.
  • A Team Event - though it does have it's individual elements, at the end of the day Lindy Hop needs a team of two people to work. The pentathlon should be entered by a couple.
And what should be out:
  • Other dance styles - No Balboa, No Blues, No Shag. This is about being the greatest Lindy Hop couple, not the greatest vernacular jazz dance couple. So these other styles are out.
  • A separate event - this should be taking place at an existing competition
  • Gimmicks - dance marathons, jazz alphabets, memorisation of routines etc. Yeah I know it's a fine line between gimmicks and icons, but this shouldn't be too silly.
So with all that in mind here's my list of events for a Lindy Hop Pentathlon:

The Partnered Contests (in at least one of these events the couple should switch roles for the entirety of the event):
  • Strictly Lindy - improvised with partner, to unknown music
  • Jack and Jill - improvised with random partner, to unknown music
  • Showcase/Classic - choreographed routine to music selected by couple
 The Mad Skillz Contests:
  • Solo dance - charleston, authentic jazz it's all good
  • Huge Air - this is the addition, something to up the stakes and get the crowd pumping. Here's how it goes down. Four eights, thirty two bars, one chorus to pull the craziest most-crowd-pleasing air step(s) possible. To be judged by audience acclamation. For fairness the same chorus could be used for everyone.
Competitors would be judged as a couple with their individual scores in the solo dance and J&J contests would be added to their score as a team. Each event would be equally weighted. To raise the stakes the scores could be tallied and tabled before the Huge Air contest - so the audience knows where everyone is placed going into the last round. This could also be held in conjunction with other events - only those entering all 5 would go into the pentathlon.

So there's my idea. Would it ever make it into an event? Probably not and I'm not really advocating that it should - this is more of a thought experiment than anything else.

Jazz Music Shops for Swing DJs

One of the things I've been working on of late is a crowd sourced map of jazz music stores. When I travel I like to visit music stores and check out their selection - hopefully I can snap up something that's out of print or heavily discounted.

The map is for those swing DJs who like to travel and who like to buy their music in hard copy.

Here's the map:
If anyone has any additions please let me know in the comments. I'd rather avoid adding chain stores, unless they have a particularly good selection.

10 Lindy Hop Videos Everyone Should Watch

Well I've been slack with the postings as of late (I've been working on some other projects - and am starting my PhD - besides am I ever not slack with posting stuff here) - heck I'm always slack, but here's 10 important videos about Lindy Hop. There's no real criteria for inclusion - I've picked some that are great examples of things, others that are important for our modern scene in various ways and others because I like them. Enjoy!

1 - After Seben 1929
Baring the uncovering of some archival footage (which is possible, film shot at the 1928 Harlem dance marathon - where Lindy was supposedly invented - exists in a vault in South Carolina) this film from 1929 is the earliest example we have of Lindy Hop and features the legendary 'Shorty' George Snowden. With comments from Bobby White:

2 - Hellzapoppin - 1941
The most famous Lindy Hop routine on film. You can also watch the full movie here.I like this version with the musical introduction featuring the genius of Slim and Slam which illustrates the call and response features of jazz.

3 - The Spirit Moves
The most important video documentary of African American vernacular dance. Mura Dehn filmed a bunch of the greats from the Savoy, including Al Minns and Leon James, amongst many other dancers tracing the changes in dance styles across the 20th century. This is just a preview of the DVD (if you're serious about this shit you should buy yourself a copy). There's videos on youtube of various lindy hop related scenes that you can search out as well.

4 - Mad Dog 2002
Badass! was a quality missing during the neo-swing and groove phases that contemporary lindy hop went through - but it's not missing in this routine. It's was pretty influential (I wasn't around then, but those who were still talk about it) and a great example of a throw down everything balls-to-the-wall jam.

5 - Max and Thomas 2007
Max and Thomas of the Ninjammerz showing us how it's done. This routine is actually a parody of a routine done originally by Carla Heiney and Kevin St. Laurent which you can watch here.

6 - Skye and Frida "24 Robbers" - 2007
No list of lindy hop videos is complete without a performance from the power couple of Frida Segerdahl and Skye Humphries. This is one of their more iconic routines (and one of my personal favourites).
Jerry Almonte has a lengthy post about this routine that is well worth reading - in fact if you really want to get yourself schooled on the recent history of lindy hop (and have some time to kill - it's about 70 pages long) check out his Artistry in Rhythm series.

7 - I Charleston Japan - 2009
You've probably seen an I Charleston video (there's more than 40 now) but this one started them all.


8 - The Last Bounce - 2010
Lindy Hop in an arena spectacular? Where else but Sweden of course. The Harlem Hotshots wow the audience in this section of The Last Bounce.

9 - Black Coffee - 2011
There's now a bunch of Lindy Hop videos made by Lindy Hoppers which have rather high production values. This was one of the first I saw and remains a favourite:

10 - What is Lindy Hop? - 2013

It only took 8 years but there's finally a video on You Tube that actually explains what Lindy Hop is (aside from the misleading references to newspaper headlines). Put together by Yehoodi for this year's live broadcast of ILHC it's something you can send to relos and non-dancing friends.


Bonus - Evolution of Lindy Hop - 2010
Karen Turman and Andrew Thigpen's ILHC routine references a tonne of choreography from classic Lindy Hop videos. You can read about the thought process behind it in a series of guest posts (again on Jerry's blog), Ben Yau has an analysis of all the videos and there's also a compilation here.

2013 Federal Election: Minor Parties Take 2

Well we're a week out and for those considering voting below the line I've already covered most of the minor parties (and Antony Green has an excellent guide to below the line voting here) However there's a whole bunch of single issue parties to add to the menagerie of minor parties running on the NSW senate ballot.

As a sample we've got Bullet Train for Australia;
The Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP) Party;
The No Carbon Tax Climate Sceptics;
And the Smoker's Rights Party:


I thought I'd have a crack at trying to get these parties onto the Vote Compass too. Being single issue parties makes them rather difficult to to properly plot them on the metric. I've developed vote compass scores by adding up the scores of all the parties they've preferenced inversely proportional to the rank that party group has been given. This means I can now chart everyone who submitted a group voting ticket (apologies for the crammed labels).
Click for larger version
Most of the minor parties wind up where you would expect them, although there's been a bit of movement around the place for those I've previously analysed. Senator Online, out of all the single issue parties appears (on this metric) to have the claim to the most non-partisan preferencing allocation. The Socialist Equality Party is more centrist than their idealogical position because of their frankly bizarre group voting ticket (they submitted 3 tickets with Labor, Liberal and Green getting the number 2 spot and the the remainder numbered in the order they appear on the ballot, presumably reading up on the way senate preferences work is too bourgeois - the buck doesn't necessarily stop with one of the big three).

This brings us to another problem. If you're an above the line voter chances are your vote ain't going to your number 1 box. There's really only about 15 or so parties on the NSW ballot paper who have even an outside chance of being elected (though there's some scenarios where others could get up with a vanishingly small primary vote thanks to the craziness of preference harvesting). People selecting the preferences for their party know this too, they really only need to be careful about their positioning of these major parties who could attract. So I've repeated the above analysis, but this time only considering the preferences allocated to these 15 larger parties.
Click for larger version

There's quite a bit of movement here for many of the players. Wikileaks is dragged to the right and Senator Online even more so (demolishing their so-called non-partisan claim). Interestingly the Australian Fishing and Lifestyle party winds up with the exact same spot as the Shooters and Fishers. You could accuse them of being a front but in all other aspects (party registration, history etc.) they're not.

Is this a decent simulation of a party's preferencing position? Not really. It doesn't take into account which party the vote is likely to help elect - that would require some decent polling of minor party senate voting intention, which doesn't exist (at least in the public domain). If we had some polling we could combine that with the preferencing information to run some Monte Carlo simulations and work out not only the probability of various parties being elected to the senate, but which could also tell you the probability of your vote for a particular candidate helping elect another candidate (for example it might be able to tell you that your vote for Wikileaks has a 2% chance of electing a Wikileaks candidate, a 34% chance of electing the Shooters and Fishers party and a 53% of electing The Greens). But we don't have any polling data, so it can't be done.

Hopefully this might help you somewhat in your voting. Happy September 7! (and have a snag for me, I doubt the embassy in Geneva, where I'll be voting, will have a sausage sizzle)

2013 Federal Election: Minor Parties Vote Compass

The minor parties on offer on the NSW Senate Ticket (45 columns and 110 candidates) vary considerably.

We have the wingnut right represented by the Rise Up Australia Party:
The wingnut left represented by the Socialist Equality Party:

And the just plain wingnut represented by the Palmer United Party (sadly the tinfoil hat wearing Citizen's Electoral Council is not running in NSW):
Meanwhile One Nation and The Democrats are still here:
All this and some rather dodgy preference deals leaves a below the line voter, like myself, with a hard task ahead of me. Who do I preference first? Who do I preference last? How do I order everything in the middle?

So I've gone and run the minor parties through the ABC's Vote Compass website to see where they stand on a more numerical basis. Of all the groups and independents there are 25 who have a broad enough issue base (and websites to have a look at their policies) to work here. There's a bunch of single issue parties, which are easy enough to consider separately (although some, notably Stop the Greens and Smokers Rights, seem to be nothing more than fronts for the libertarian Liberal Democratic Party).

Firstly I'd like to say that the condition of policy information on parties' websites is woeful (the Socialist Equality Party's material isn't even on its own website - it sits on the site operated by the International Committee of the Fourth International, a global Trotskyist organisation). In most cases its poorly organised, badly written or strings of motherhood statements. Everyone could really lift their game. Nevertheless I managed to divine party positions on many of the Vote Compass questions using policy statements and other resources (such as media releases) on party websites.

Here's where they've all come out (I've used the Vote Compass rankings for the three major parties) - the scale is the same as vote compass - economic issues on the x axis and social issues on the y axis:
Click for a larger version
Firstly the error bars on these are pretty large as many policy questions had to be answered with an "I don't know".

Secondly the set of questions, whilst relevant to current policy debates, hardly covers the full gamut of party policies. The answers also don't cover the full range of policy responses either. A different system produces different results.

For example Socialist Alliance should really be further to the left of the Greens (and the Socialist Equality Party further to the left still). They wind up being further right as they want to eliminate government assistance to big business (like car manufacturers) - by nationalising them (there's not really an appropriate answer for this on the question).

Similarly a number of the 'micro right' parties should really be further left on the economic scale given their position on protectionism, but slide right due to their opposition of a few labor government taxation policies.

Other have views that are a little bit over the shop on the traditional scales, e.g. protectionist of agriculture but deregulate small business or; against same sex marriage but supportive of euthanasia.

I also feel like the questions were designed to maximise the difference between the ALP and the Coalition (the reality is that there is much policy they share in common), so what are really fringe parties ideologically may sit much closer in to the main parties.

So take these rankings with a large grain of salt okay?

However this does allow us to put these parties into groups.

The 'Pick a policy from everywhere' Centrists
Hard to characterise as left or right in general, they pick issues from both sides.
  • Palmer United Party
  • Uniting Australia Party
The Big Government Christian Conservatives
Protectionist economics combined with conservative christian values.
  • One Nation
  • Christian Democrat Party
  • Australia Voice
  • Democratic Labor Party
  • Katter's Australian Party
The Small Government Christian Conservatives
Small government (in terms of taxation, spending and regulation) and christian values.
  • Family First
  • Rise Up Australia Party
  • Shooters and Fishers
The Nationalists
Very protectionist economics and conservative social values (though these take a lower priority)
  • Australian Protectionist Party
  • Australia First Party (though these guys are pretty extreme, they're more fascist - if you forgot about social issues they'd get on pretty well with the Socialist Equality Party)
The Libertarians
Small government (in terms of taxation, spending and regulation) and social freedoms.
  • Liberal Democrat Party
  • The Australian Republicans
The Moderate Progressives
Balanced regulation and taxation with limited social freedoms.
  • Australian Independents
  • Andrew Whalan (Group F)
The Social Progressives
Social freedoms and large (in terms of taxation, spending and regulation) but more accountable government.
  • The Pirate Party
  • The Future Party
  • The Secular Party
  • Australian Democrats
The Communists
Nationalise everything, workers rights and social freedoms. (Also keep an eye out for ex-communist party members - which has been deregistered - running as independents, such as Ron Poulsen in NSW)
  • Socialist Alliance
  • Socialist Equality Party

DJing at Herrang

I've just left Herrang after volunteering for the crash down of camp. I'm now slowly meandering my way to Italy where I'll take up residence in September. Whilst I was taking classes and partying I had the opportunity to be a volunteer DJ on a number of occasions. DJing at Herrang was an awesome experience and I thought I'd share some of my experiences (and also how the volunteer DJing works – there's not too much information out there about it) and vague meanderings about DJing there. I may get around to posting some other stuff about Herrang, but we'll see how that works out with some of the other stuff I'm doing over the next few weeks.

DJed music at Herrang is done by the Head DJs, Staff DJs (Christian Bossert has a great post about being a staff DJ here) and Volunteer DJs. The crucial sets are looked after by the Head and Staff DJs with volunteer DJs generally given the less critical sets (for example in another room whilst the band is playing or early in the night). My sets ranged in length from an hour to more than 2 hours. Volunteer DJs will occasionally get to close out the night in somewhere like the library or the Dancebanan, but I don't believe it happens often.

To be a volunteer DJ all you need to do is show up for one of the DJ meetings held on Sunday by the Head DJs. To be asked to DJ more than once all you need to do is not play crap music. The number of sets that you are asked to do will vary depending on the number of volunteer DJs, how late the dancers are staying up that week, how much live music is going on and whether the head DJs like you or not.

For volunteer DJs the perks are few: you get free entrance to the party on the evening you're Djing (an important consideration if you're planning on buying a party pass) and bike parking right outside Folkets Hus. But hey, you're DJing at freaking Herrang (and I'm hoping the exposure will be good, now that I've moved to Europe).

There are 3 main dance spaces in the Folkets Hus, the main location for the evening partying
  • The Main Ballroom – with the exception of slow drag night and the occasional activity on the Friday night party the main ballroom is always lindy hop. Sometimes a band will play the ballroom.
  • The Dansbanan (aka the Dance Banana) – during week 1 this is the Boogie Woogie floor, for other weeks it's usually lindy hop. Sometimes a band will play the dancebanan.
  • The Library – the library had quite a bit of variation. During week 1 it was slow dance themed, week 3 was balboa and there were other events in there too (often themed for the Friday party, Peter Loggins also played a New Orleans set there), but the intention is to keep the library relatively true to the Herrang music philosophy (there was a well attended discussion on this during week 5, which I missed).
Then there's the secret blues dancing parties which occur in a variety of venues (including the Sauna, Heaven's Kitchen or the foyer of Folkets Hus), to DJ these you need to contact the organisers (who vary).

Herrang's music philosophy is well known. The focus is on big band swing recorded in the 1920s, 30s and early 1940s, with the late 30s early 40s period probably being the most played period. Contemporary bands that play in a similar style are also played (though I feel that there may be a little too much reliance on very popular bands like Gordon Webster and Glenn Crytzer). Perdido (1942) and Now You Has Jazz (1956) were two of the most popular tracks by my ear unless you count the 2 hours of Bananaphone (1994) which completed the end of the ultimately bad lindy hop music showcase on the last Thursday of camp.

I played what I consider to be relatively conservative sets. You don't come to Herrang to experiment and you don't come to Herrang to play crap (unless it's bad music night). Having said that I think flexibility is also very important. The following DJ may be late or not show up at all; you might be asked to DJ a lindy room, only to be faced with a room of balboa dancers (both of which happened to me – the balboa freaked me out a little, not being a huge balboa dancer I normally need some time to prepare for a balboa set, but I recovered eventually). I also Djed one of the peer auditions for the Advanced Lindy Hop stream which was fun. About a third of the tracks I played were recorded before 1939 and half before 1944. A third of the tracks I played were contemporary (though that does include a lot of the tracks I dropped during the secret blues party I DJed) with the remainder being from the late 40s and 50s.

Djing at Herrang was an awesome experience and I hope to be back spinning next year.

Yeah, swing dancing is sexist. So what are you going to do about it?

Sexism and misogyny in Australia has been in the news of late (in case you're not from here or have been hiding under a rock). There's also been a whole lot of new discussion in the Lindy Hop community about the nature of sexism in our community. See on blogs for example here, or on multiple stalkerplant threads e.g. here. A lot of the commentary has been less than great, especially from many men (seriously bros, what's up with that? Just try reading it for a change, you might learn something.)

There should be more male voices in this conversation talking about what we're doing to stamp out sexism and misogyny (rather than talk about the problem (or their perceived lack of it), which all too frequently gets done to the exclusion of female voices  - see the all male panel which had it appeared in the Green Left Weekly as opposed to Channel 7's Sunrise would have been ironic as opposed to pathetic).

So without further ado and in no particular order here's what I'm doing/will do:

Follow More
Our heteronormative paradigm of men=lead, women=follow leading to sexism has been covered well by others. Much of the time this is discussed in the context of women leading and everyone solo dancing as a means to end the hetero paradigm. However we're not really going to deconstruct this without men playing their part i.e. men following women, men following other men. Bonus - nobody ever needs to talk about 'balance' ever again and we can make our scene friendlier to people who don't identify as hetero male or female.

I'm going to follow more - I enjoy it and it's fun. And if it helps get rid of some of the bullshit in our scene - that's a bonus to me.

(And if you really think that men leading and women following is the best paradigm, read my other post here).

Dance more with men
See above.

Use my words
This is one I'm getting better at, but I still find myself asking people to dance without actually asking them to dance. I find it really annoying when people do this to me, so I'm going to stop doing it to them.


Volunteer more
In the great western tradition of giving women all the underpaid and under-appreciated jobs women seem to do the majority of the organising and volunteering (at least in the Australian scene). This is bullshit.

So the next opportunity I have, I'm going to stick me hand up to help out at a dance event.

Stop using "There's too few leads men" as an excuse
The idea that leads are this sought after commodity is bad, bad, bad. It creates a sense of entitlement, reinforces conventions about men following or volunteering and leads to general asshat behaviour. So whenever I catch myself thinking this, saying it or using it online I'm going to stop myself and say  'bad thoughts' and come up with the real reason as opposed to the bullshit one.

 
Call other men out on their bullshit
Whether its pick up artists (both in the crazy dips and tricks on the social floor or hitting on women meanings of the word), inappropriate touching, being a jerk or general creepiness I'm going to tell guys when they're doing stuff that ain't cool. Sure it might not make me any friends (but hey, do I want these people as my friends?), but it might help other people call them out too. Peer pressure ain't just what's making you take drugs in high school - it can be used for good here.

Now this is my list. Feel free to use it as your own, but I think its better we come up with these things ourselves. I welcome your suggestions in the comments (and yeah, they're moderated - if you're an asshat it won't get published).

Tumblr

I'm not on Tumblr.

Perhaps I should be.

Cause there's awesome stuff on Tumblr.

Like this:

The Female Lead's Manifesto

The awesomeness is that each of the 5 points could be just as well applied to male follows too.

Set List: Brisbane Lindy Exchange Sunday Evening

Here's my set from Sunday afternoon at the Brisbane Lindy Exchange. I was following up the wonderful Tim Awesomesauce.

After starting this set off with a food theme I took a detour through the Jitterbug Stroll and a little bit of 'sixties' stuff. A spontaneous jam circle formed on Jeep Jockey Jump which was strange as the room was half empty - everyone was getting the BBQ.

I passed over to Matt and the band (the Empire Swings Back) who knocked everyone's socks off.
