  1. My first Brugmansia flower for the season Brugmansia 'flava' (arborea x sanguinea)
  2. Absolutely beautiful photography! Some of the best fungi photography i've seen. My favourite is the first Flammulina velutipes photo. What camera/s did you use for those photos?
  3. Crime Investigation Australia The Gonzales Family Murders 10.30pm – 11.30pm NBN Sunday 20 June 2010 Those that were around in the community back then might find this interesting.
  4. Hi all, a friend of mine has two spare tickets to EGA for sale at late notice due to work commitments. He is asking $100 each but i'd say this would be negotiable at this stage. PM me if anyone is keen as he is not on the forums. Thanks.
  5. For dark psy you can't go past the old stuff (2000-2005). Penta, Menog, Parasense. Gataka is also great for an uplift. Being a metal guitarist i am really fussy/picky with what psytrance i listen to. It is mostly electro rubbish with the artists having no fucking idea about how to write a song properly. So when i hear a really well written track or an artist that can write and understand music theory it blows me away. All the dark psy i've tried listening to for the past few years has been noisy crap, so i'd love some suggestions too.
  6. I have heard confirmations of sightings of cube and pan in the hunter over the past week. I thought it was getting too late also, but apparently not- conditions are perfect.
  7. Mini-meet was awesome! Thanks C_T. Hehe, what a day. You guys missed out!
  8. Is the Newcastle meet still happening tomorrow? I'm heaps busy and not sure if i can make it yet but is it still happening?
  9. Heres a picture of the mother plant when i took a cutting years ago. I'm not sure, but it looks a lot like Pilocereus alensis. I think thats the one. Definately looks like the photos. http://cactiguide.com/cactus/?genus=Piloso...species=alensis
  10. Thanks All! EG, the camera i used was a Sony DSC-H2. Slow exposures on tripod. I still use a EOS100 but the cost of film is a bit exxy and i find the sony pretty good for a point and shoot. It always needs the colour contrast adjusted a bit though.
  11. Can anyone help ID this one? I'm pretty sure it's a Cereus but i have no idea on species. I've had it for 6 years and it's the first year it has flowered. -----
  12. Has anyone else had trouble loading up Ethnobotany Australia? It's been two days now and i haven't been able to load the page.
  13. Leaving now. See you all there!
  14. Nice. Daheen (Dave) is a good friend of mine, love his vibe and tunage! My time for bush doofs was between 2002-2005. I saw the scene seriously deteriorate into a seedy drug scene towards the end of 2004. It's a shame it went like that, as my initiation into the scene was such a beautiful place and some serious exploring of conciousness took place regularily. It seems dirty party drugs have sort of taken over in some places. I can't really comment on what it is like at the moment except for reports i get occasionally from friends who go regularily. Still there is nothing like a party in the bush. I agree with those that say it is hard to go back to an indoor gig after being in crystal clear nature for such an experience. I'm listening to one of my fave psytrance albums while typing this: 'Gataka: Drop the Mask' - it's old but it pumps!! Bring on the goosebumps! I'd love to organise a reunion type party and see if its possible to recapture that amazing vibe the scene had years ago. Fuck me, I MISS THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
