On wednesday night there was a show on ABC called HEAD FIRST an episode titled 'The Lost Boys'
The program was filmed here in Yirrkala and has some of our / mine co-workers and friends in it - DJ and Ruby in particular as well as one of the prints I made with DJ and the printspace and the art centre and it so it is good to see altho maybe a bit sad and revealing too
