Vote for wintery greatness

By kaydo at 5:37 pm on Monday, June 18, 2007

The cool kids at the National Capital Authority are letting you vote for movies you’d like played as a part of the Winter in the Capital fandango.

The exciting thing is that they’ve chosen some truly timeless classics that I must insist you all vote for:

  • The Karate Kid
  • The Lost Boys
  • The Goonies
  • I’ve seen each of these movies in the last 6 months, and I must say that they really do hold up to the test of time. I am not delusional. Please vote.

i’ve got nothing witty to say about… golf

By kaydo at 11:51 pm on Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Ridiculously cold winter nights are the best time for outdoor activities. We’re bringing back the tradition of the golf driving range. It’s on:

What: Hitting golf balls
Where: Narrabundah Golf Driving Range
When: 7pm Wednesday 13/06
Why: Canberra doesn’t have a baseball batting cage. I’ve checked. Also, there’s heaters.

In the case of PANTS, tradition = when we think of it. When should we do this again?

If you’re one of the cool kids on the net, you probably already know about twitter. I really don’t see it as a compelling application for most that aren’t stalkers, but for us it’s rather dandy.

If you’re that way inclined you can subscribe for SMS, email or IM updates from joinpants. You’ll see our current status on the column on the right side of this page. This gets dynamically updated due to the genius of the internet. When we’re in the midst of a big event, we’ll sms an update about our activity or location, if you want to join us, it’s an easy way to find us.

yay for technology.

(also, the suggest an event form is working again if you want to, um, suggest stuff.)

Little Birdy @ the venue THIS WEEK

By kaydo at 9:00 pm on Monday, June 4, 2007

11th hour update, but constantly cool. Little Birdy are playing at the venue in Erindale on Wednesday June 6th. If you missed them at the ANU recently, or if you’ve seen them in alarming rotation on late night tv from their ‘live at the chapel’ appearance, you’ll want to get down to the southside. The venue website also allows you to purchase tickets online, so get there.

The upcoming list of gigs is also on the venue site, so check it out for some more highlights. (nope, I don’t feel the need to link to them a third time in one post)

winterlude in canberra

By kaydo at 8:50 pm on Monday, June 4, 2007

It’s been a bit quiet around these parts of late. I’ve been absent from the twosixonefive – what’s your excuse?

Anyway, with June we welcome a stupid number of winter-themed posts and activities. You have been warned.

Upcoming coolness* is primarily around three activities:

  • Friday 8th June – RailJam outside Adrenalin Sports in Braddon. The JoinPANTS crew attended last year and it rocked. There’s a crazy ramp, lots of ice, lots of skills and stunts on display, lots of injury and, if last year is anything to go by, antics in underwear. We’ll rock up for the event and head to Civic Pub after the event.
  • Saturday 9th June – Opening of the ski season. Normally this can go by unnoticed, but this year there is SNOW. Season 2006 proves we cannot take this for granted, so a quick dash might be required over the long weekend.
  • Constantly – Ice Hockey – the Canberra Knights are still going strong. It’s a great winter activity, particularly when the outdoor temperature is a bit closer to that inside, less shock.
  • July (yes, the whole month) – Winter in the capital. The ACT govt loves you after all! They’re planning on re-using the vast expanse of bitumen left by the Cirque de Soliel crew for something other than futsal and will see my personal dream realised. It’ll be crazy cold, but we’ll get the chance to embrace it with Ice Skating, Snow ball wars and night markets. Stay tuned for the highlights.

* and puns aplenty

Also, its fireworks weekend. Have you got yours?
