I don't understand why anyone should be owning a military grade gun or any gun at all except the military. The laws in the US constitution that allow guns were written when the country was being settled amidst civil war. It's like nothing has changed and people still feel violated to have their guns taken away despite it being hundreds of years later. I shake my head at my own country.

Thanks for sharing Luka - not many brave folks out there that are willing to explore the elephant in room.

Appreciation to ABC TV for this conversation.

Although still in development, the finished show we are working on will be a live reinterpretation of the Ancient Greek story of The Odyssey using Hip-hop and Spoken Word poetry.

I'm looking forward to having more details for you, until then, more research, tweaks and slow progress with our incredible creative team.

Thanks to everyone who has been a part of the journey so far.

Respect and appreciation to Youth Affairs Network Qld (YANQ), Debbie Kilroy from Sisters Inside and every other individual who was so steadfast and strong in advocating for this change since 1992 and beyond. Patience is a virtue, persistence is king.

This is the video for ‘17’ that was made as a commission from Youth Affairs Network Qld (YANQ) in 2012. www.facebook.com/seventeenoutofprison/videos/10150645345888049/

Thanks for your ongoing support Luka.

Instead of teaching people how to be a part of a production line, we must keep developing our creativity. Art wins, again.

No machine will ever have the complexities of the human heart

Creativity has always been the way forward. In the past, the most creative deployed the least creative as their machines. Now it is cheaper to build artificial humans(machines).

Or an artist. 😊

Just means it was carefully crafted until it was ready to bloom.

Only if seconds were bigger than days. What mattes ?

Well not pathetic so that must be some really fine poetry 😊

Perfectionist mate, dont let yourself down

You are superb and doing the work. Ma te aroha from Aotearoa.

That is still 60 seconds more than me 😉 Edit for clarity: I am not a poet.

That is a highly productive ratio!
