WIRD was asked to rock up to the Big Machine Skate Festival as part of Youth Week but unfortunately only got 12 hours notice! In true WIRD form we rustled together a bunch of girls and rocked up to try and (unsuccessfully) impress the youfs. Our charms worked much better on the organisers, St John’s Ambos and other assorted adults.
We totally made our presence felt and then took over the skate park for a brief while. Note: I can skate and use a megaphone at the same time – good to know.
So good you need to share it?

She is the author of Snakes and Ladders: a memoir and host of the Deboning Power Podcast.
A writer, thinker and yeller, Angela Williams is mildly notorious for seeing problems and pointing them out. She’s tussled with Fred Nile in the Sydney Morning Herald, taken academia to task in the Guardian’s Anonymous Academic, gone to Crikey about the treatment of mentally ill women in prison, and most recently blown the whistle on dangerous risks in her (former) charity workplace. Angela does one thing really well – find problems and yell about them.
