Yesterday saw 2006’s Cube AGM – and it was apparent it’s a seriously tricky time for the Cube with almost all in the most responsible roles wanting, or in fact needing, to hand over to new blood . . . new blood that wasn’t very visibly forward in coming forward . . .
Meanwhile, on a more jovial note, Orchestra Cube who you can spy through the door in the image above performed music ( to the bewilderment of most ) for the entrance of volunteers to the meeting at the request of “corridor sweeper” Heath.
i shall endeavour to draw some pics cus i fergot my camera. boy did we waffle on (could be an endorsement there you know).
Hmm, not sure I’d say there was waffling – rather not enough talking really . . . personally I pretty much avoided saying anything, and on the whole those who did speak seemed keen to hurriedly hand over to someone else. Plain fact is without a working core of dedicated, and more importantly present, daytime staff The Cube could collapse, whether we want to talk about it or not.
Kinda like the labour party? crikey. Max Blackout in charge of EVERYTHING, might not work but we’re go down in flames.
My shout on the waffling is: good to talk but too often things were said 3 or 4 times, sometimes by the same person! Talk is cheap someone said once (premobile phone clearly) time for action……….. CUBEANISTAS WHERE ARE YOU? (cue dramatic music……)
But what a nice bunch a people though ey?
Didn’t notice the repetitions – well except for the catch phrase “I’ve been doing it for X years now, and I really need to hand over, see me afterwards if you’re interested.” !
Like Nick Cave once sang It’s nice to be important, but more important to be nice . . .
Actually , scratch that, right now I think it’s more important to be important – here’s hoping some nice people can step up . . !
