Review of Melbourne's Overload Poetry Festival

I give it a Null score......

while present in Melbourne I attended the following

Dracula's Cabaret
West Side Story
the ACMI  Tim Burton exhibition
and the Stadel Museum's European Masters exhibition at the NGV

and completely couldnt be bothered attending any of the poetry festival's events.


Dracula's Cabaret:  very very fun. kitsch as. best enjoyed drunk. if it can be enjoyed sober, I'll never know.

West Side Story: Meh. The songs did not move me in a way I thought they should, the characters  = beige to grey. i didn't care when the 3 main characters died, and thought the gang rape was completely ignored and brushed aside with an "ohhh, you kids will never learn".

Tim Burton Exhibition: something for Tim Burton fanboys and Fangirls to rub one out over. The line was overlong, exhibition was overpriced and overcrowded, the walls were teeming with pictures that all looked so similar you started to suspect the shuffling line of wall-gazing greasy-gelled-hair fan-zombies had started to loop back on themselves. vaguely interesting for the first wall, with diminishing returns as you venture farther into the exhibit

Stadel Museum's European Masters: full of masters, light on masterpieces. Still worthwhile though. Especially seeing the change in  Max Beckmann's painting before and after the great war.

Drunken Work Poem

sidewards dagger look

Your eyes are sabers

Bright white sabers

I'm not hear what you say cause

I left my sober at home.
