Only days after Facebook hit the magic 1000  friends the number of visits to the social pages hit 30,o23 ! We’ve noticed that a few wannabee social butterflies have emerged from the net cocoon in recent times but there is only ONE social pages and that’s right here in Canberra, Australia’s authentic centre for social control. Thanks to all our fans. Time for a celebratory drink with Serge (the 1000th Facebook friend), Ben and Richard.

Emerging success

The other good news is one current and one ex resident scored 10K Emerging Artists Grants from the Australia Council in the latest round …. CONGRATULATIONS … to Fiona Viekkanen and Ben Forster (pictured below). It would be totally impossible to think of two more deserving people and both of course have graced the social pages numerously and frequently nonsensically. Can’t even believe that”s a word.
