Well I have to be most cautious about what I say publicly about the matter because the judicial process has to be completed before I can publicly discuss the specifics. To make public comments would risk being found being in contempt of the Court, risk damage to my defense. All I can really say publicly is that a complaint was made, I've been charged with assaulting a private security guard working for new Chinese Consulate in Joslin, my first Court appearance is on 17th June & I intend on defending my innocence. To discuss the "qui bono" (who benefits, motivation for complaint) for example would be discussing matters that are "sub judice" ~ awaiting justice/ subject to judicial process as an approximate translation & doing so might/would constitute an offence of Contempt of Court.

Performances.. four this fortnight. I have been busy. Whippersnapper Unicorn Chap's Hall in his Heritage Bluestone Villa in fashionable suburb coming along, it's the Hall of a thousand hours of preparation. Started painting ceiling, 2 ceiling roses & top and bottom horizontal feature rails of ornate cornice with individual tinted colours. House was originally Baptist Church Manse built circa 1850 (Priest's residence) then privately owned, used as Brothel circa 1918-1940 then private residence again. Still has red stained glass in windows in frame around front door from brothel years.

It's ~1am and I am parked in parklands near CBD of Adelaide with homeless people camping nearby. I went to Diverse City nightclub open mic night tonight, had a hearty meal, gave them a bottle of Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky for the Bar, did fifteen minutes of Standup and watched a brilliant duo sing and one played guitar. They did a four song encore after winning the $Aus100 first prize including a Burt Bacharach Hal David classic & a King Princess song I really liked so I will get the CD of their album with the song.
I finally paid last installment to get my Paul Hogan TV Shows etc DVD set and collected it, plus paid for the Artic Monkeys A M album CD that is ordered & on it's way to the Sunny Antipodes.
I also agreed to purchase an early 1990's Honda CB250 Red motorcycle for $Aus 1,500-.
I collected & paid $Aus60 for a vintage Telephone Linesman's Test Handpiece with old fashioned rotary dialling mechanism so it's circa 1950's / 1960's ~ it will make an excellent prop for comedy, to satarise mobile phones.
As Jim Morrison sang, "the future's uncertain and the end is always near"

96 yo Aunty Meg is close to crossing the River Jordan, spoke to her briefly on Wednesday about 3:39pm. She is so close to the end & I will miss her a lot, she's my most beloved Aunt.

So, it's En Avante Mes Amis and may confusion and calamity reign down upon Wicked Xu Doo Poodung and his servants.

Doom.and Gloom, invade my affairs, tis no use whining or withdrawing as the young actress whispered to her Cardinal Sin.

The Ominous News is that I have foolishly accepted the offer to perform as Dusty Balzac Bush Philosopher in Adelaide heat 2 of the Antipodean national RAW comedy competition to be held at Rhino Room on Wednesday 14th July.

I'm tinkering with some new stuff about tackle box & compass get lost in the bushes, but need Hilarious jokes, so please submit your contributions.

Merci Mes Amis, love your work 💜💖💜
The open mic night at Diverse City nightclub on Wednesday 30(? 1st?) was cancelled due to small CV19 outbreak needing to be controlled and SA Government changing restrictions. The restrictions were eased 24hrs later and I did a five minute spot at Rhino Room open mic night on Thursday night.
My second performance at Rhino Room & Michael Bowley the organiser had me 1st or 2nd act in first half of show on my first outing on his stage.

On Thursday night, he placed me as fourth act in second half of show after intermission break, two spots from top.billing. A daunting acid test, it's great coming on after three hot comics because the audience is fired up, but if you don't start really well, keep audience laughter going, be even funnier, you can crash and burn so easily.
I had a strong performance and have a much better tighter concept of the five minute routine I will do in this critical Heat2 of RAW Comedy competition performance in ten days time ( assuming it's the 4th today, LoL)
Lots of work to do preparing, hand sewing embroidered patches onto a long sleeved shirt and rehearsing my routine, something I don't out enough disciplined time into, I do most performances "on the fly" without much more than a general idea of what I will do, the bumbling amateur.

The lunacy increases, seven days to go...
I went to Cranker Comedy last night to network with colleagues, met this most interesting chap Tony Roberts who was the headline act. Adorable & madly exciting Kylie 🌟 Star turned up and we're going to meet at tonight's first RAW Comedy competition heat at Rhino Room & sit together near the stage and play psychological games with audience and performers, all in fun and with a genuine care to not deliberately sabotage or harm another Standup Comedian's performance.
We're going to experiment with "looking as if we're going to heckle and not heckle" --- because we're known as wickedly wierd audience members, our pals when they're on stage will be expecting us to heckle, glancing our way.etc.. and we do fake countdowns to a heckle then don't..

Five days to go? I have challenged African clairvoyant magician Joseph Mbappewa who advertises in The Advertiser Newspaper (Adelaide) to come to Heat2 of RAW Comedy competition @ Rhino Room, the challenge is for Joseph Mbappewa to cast a spell that gives Dusty Balzac Bush Philosopher a shrunken head during my performance on stage and Dusty (me) is going to use my magical powers to transform Joseph Mbappewa into a laughing stock.
Joseph Mbappewa has taken the bait, sending me hostile texts, 💀 skulls and abuse~ so it's another fight I have started.. LoL

I will do anything to get more audience members and win this competition, a shrunken head is a small price to pay for victory!
Polling of comedy colleagues indicates a strong opinion that giving me a shrunken head during my performance is an impossible task..
Straw poll of the Webdiplomacy Community...
Can Joseph Mbappewa reduce the size of Daffy Old MM/ Dusty Balzac's head & ego?

Crashed & burnt in my opinion. Others were nice about it. Didn't get selected for state final. Put a lot into it and failed.

Don't feel bad MM. I had a few concerns when you seemed to be making your comedy awfully complicated. Never saw Billy Connelly or Oz's current favourite, Carl Barron get too complicated - their best stuff is extraordinarily ordinary, every day, every man stuff.

Might not be your thing, but LCD isn't always wrong.

There's a lot of stuff people will laugh at that's just superficial crap in my opinion, like I watch people make jokes about others that show the person making the joke has no real understanding of what life is actually like for those of whom they make fun. I certainly don't have it worked out & that's why I failed

They have a fun little collection of shrunken heads in Pitt Rivers in Oxford. Have to keep them them hidden away now, of course. Political correctness and all that.

All that aside, good on you for giving it a go. You planning on charging back into the breach any time soon or taking a break for a while?

Having some healing time. Analysing everything. Will emerge with adapted plans, strategy etc. Get a better balance between doing standup comedy and:
Other artistic activities painting drawing, film.work, learning Ngarrindjeri language.
Responsibilities to family, self and battered Beach Shack & garden.
Political activism, Court trial.

Standup comedy. I am still determined to follow my own instincts and philosophical/ethical choices, and I'm not dropping the "theatricality" ~ costumes and props included. The whole thing is in its crudest earliest stages.
Anyway it's a nicer day today and I'm going to do some art/Political painting on my verandah balcony.
