Now this is a Barchivist digression with a difference; it actually involves a small wine bar, namely The Bird.

The Bird is a small wine bar in Northbridge with the distinction of being a live music venue. I have been meaning to take the Barchivists there for a while but what night to go to see which band? This difficulty was finally solved when the band that features two Barchivists as members staged a rare live appearance at this venue. (more…)

Bowling had been suggested as an outing back when we were at the 399Bar and finally it was happening. Admittedly not every Barchivist was keen to go, but those that were, were really keen. And where should the Barchivists go to bowl? Rosemount Bowls of course! Why? Because it has a bar. (more…)

It started at the 399 Bar. Those Barchivists present were discussing some non-bar related activities that we could indulge in. MS put forward that we could go to a Luna Outdoor Cinema screening of The Room. This was eerily familiar to the suggestion made by MS last year that we should go a Luna Cinema screening of The Room. The critical difference was that this time around Luna was not screening The Room at midnight. Oh, and this time it was going to be outside. Back then it was only MS, a friend of his and me who rocked up. This year, with the screening time at a more reasonable hour and outside in the balmy evening to boot, the suggestion met with approval. (more…)

Tron Party

I wish that I had a Tron t-shirt. Instead, the best that I could do was wear my Pac-Man t-shirt. It was a suitable choice, as Pac-Man has a little cameo in the film. What? You didn’t know this? You would have discovered this if you had been one of the Barchivists that had come along to the Tron Party on Friday 10 December.

MS very kindly hosted, and even sourced a copy of the film, complete with extras, such as the deleted love scene and images of Tron toy merchandise.  

In attendance, along with MS and me, arotulon, were Bookbuster, DT and a room mate of MS.

Sure, it was only a small side event to our regular Barchivist meetings, but as our talk often turns to nostalgia and since Tron has been featuring a bit lately as a conversation piece due to all the publicity for the sequel, it made sense to have an event like this. Maybe we will continue to revisit old science fiction films on a semi-regular basis. I nominate Krull. Bookbuster has put forward Zardoz. All other suggestions welcome.

Been meaning to post about this for a while now, and finally here it is. A few Barchivists go to Spring Feast. (more…)

It’s our Octoberfest event tonight, and I suspect many people are expecting me to dress up, like I did for the Mexican night. However, I don’t have any lederhosen, so the best that I can do is a little bit of Bert Kaempfert to get us in the mood for some German culture. Take it away Bert.
