Grand Pricks Racket

If you are wondering what a Grand Prix sounds like, here is a brief clip I took with the camera. I think I need a tripod. You will of course need your speakers on and I suggest you jack the volume up so that you hear as we do.

  1. Oh, please.
    We accidentally exited Melb that weekend and heard not a scrap of the rabid mating mosquitoes (which we do every year from Oakleigh).
    It gives me a headache, that incessant, niggly noise just off in the distance but just loud enough to irritate the edge of my consciousness.

  2. Turn up the volume? No thanks, I remember how it sounds still, plus we just had the clipsal race here so that's as bad.

  3. Hello Andrew:
    And that it just the sound of the cars.....the hullaballoo that hits the town, after the race is merely a whiff of burnt rubber, is deafening. August in Budapest.....

  4. Nahhh! I think I'll leave that one. I much prefer the sound of the lions roar from Melbourne Zoo!

  7. Really is the secret Jayne. Leave early.

    River, car races and classical music simultaneously. What a laugh.

    JayLa, so you get a turn at it too.

    Christine, the lions early in the morning sound wonderful.

    Grace, for much of the time I was at work.

    Kath, it will need planning, but yes.

  10. I've just listened to this on Thursday evening with the Richmond v Carlton match on television and Bruce McAvaney commentating full throttle in the background and your video drowned all that out. I had no idea the race sounded so loud at the high-rise.

  11. Victor, of course. The football. What are the scores? That is why the traffic viewed from the balcony is absolutely crazy tonight. I forgot about the footy. Well not entirely. I have been thinking of Ben concealing his drugs in one of his orifices. The races don't last too long, but the cumulative effect of the four days is wearing. I was anti GP before we moved here and I still am. But I certainly knew about before I moved here, so I walk a fine line.

Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
