My favourite things with marcus hobbs from east brunswick all girls choir
Animated movie: The Lion King. I had it on VHS as a child and used to know every single line of dialogue and all the song lyrics. Childhood memory: Camping on the Murray River or the farm at Teddywaddy in rural Victoria. No phones; wireless radio with limited reception. It was the only time we were allowed to burn things. Piece of clothing you own:
I rarely buy new items of clothing, but I have one weird item, which is a sweater chopped into a shirt. It has three people on the front in ’80s-style exercise gear. Musical genre: Folk; noisy things. Place to hang out with your mates: There used to be a pokies pub in Brunswick East in Melbourne called The Lyndhurst. It was open until 3am every night, but rarely was anyone in there after 10pm. Drinks were super-cheap and they had free pool. It’s now a Dan Murphy’s outlet. Dad joke: My dad used to do this thing on long road trips where he’d say, “Hey kids,” if he ever drove by a stack of hay in a paddock. If you said, “What?” the joke was on you. It didn’t make the trips go faster. Hangover brekkie: Codeine, blanket. Party game: Goon of Fortune is an all-time classic – swinging a sack of wine around on a Hills Hoist. It’s not worth explaining, because if you don’t already know what it is you’ll probably never play it. Person to talk to when you feel like crap: I have a beagle called Zimmer who is generally very understanding and pretty good for a cuddle when things are tough. Very soft ears.
