Melbourne has lots of cool alleyways where people do art (graffiti and other stuff).
There are also cafes and shops in the alleyways. I did this thing called En Route (kind of a moving art show and also like a secret agent mission). With En Route they give you an iPod and you go around the city and they keep sending you messages in different ways.
One way is texting on your mobile phone or giving you secret envelopes with clues or codes in them. You have to play 13 tracks (on the iPod) at different times and places (like in these alleyways where there were millions of cool little things to see).
One of my favourite bits was we had to write on this brick wall with chalk what we wished someone had said to us. I wrote that "Chickens are actually mutants in disguise plotting to take over the world" ( they are not really but that would be funny if they were).
They gave you $2 to spend anyway you want during En Route--my mum hid hers for another day, Dad gave his to a busker and I kept mine for later.
Sunday night we went to the Forum, a theatre in Melbourne for the AIR (Australian Independent Records) Awards to see my dad play. One of the bands he plays in called CW Stoneking won the prize for best blues and roots band.
The roof of the place (called the Forum) looked like it was actually the night sky and the place looked like it was a Roman Colosseum - I liked it - it was cool.
K - Freddie says - thanks for listening folks ye-haa!
