Thanks to a number of people

The Brisbane Medieval Fayre website is up. It looks fairly crappy, but it's up.

Interesting thing to note is the "opening times". 9:30 am to 6 pm on the Saturday and 9:30 am to 4:30 pm on the Sunday. No nights. Interesting.

Lets see how well they pull it off.

There's no nights.. but wait, it gets better!

there's NO TAVERN. And no drinking-of-the-good-stuff allowed anywhere on site day or night. No licence for the event whatsoever.

Oh and as of yesterday according to my spies, there's a park booking, but no event fees have been paid to BCC.

I will be surprised if the event goes ahead.

Its getting a bit hard to know which way to cross one's fingers.

Well it's a bit of a toss up, isn't it?

If it goes ahead and the boxes aren't all ticked with the council and the Parks Dept and the Police and the Security and the Health Department etc etc etc then one/many of these people can and will shut the event down - probably Sat morning - leaving everyone having set up for nothing.

If it doesn't get shut down, the lack of a tavern and the markeing FUBARs have pretty much negated any chances of a good financial result for the event, so it becomes less likely anyone will get paid.

I love BMF more than I can begin to describe, I have invested a lot in the event over the years in as many ways as it's possible to invest in something and to see it butchered like this makes me very, very sad. So I have a personal, emotional response to the way things are panning out as well. I know I'm not alone in that.

So yeah, not good!

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
