In some startling news, it now appears that ‘energy crisis’ is the latest addition to the ‘that’s fucked bingo card’ with five states copping a blackout warning today.
It’s reported that power interruptions are expected to hit Tasmania, South Australia and Victoria but it’s the origin states that will be struck hardest by the energy shortfall, likely due to all the cold Queenslanders cranking up the heat from not knowing how to deal with a slightly colder than usual winter.
For New South Wales, it’s evidently clear where the excessive energy usage is coming from – freezing expats who chose terrace houses to live in, and Sydney’s festival for moths, ‘Vivid.’
Casting as much light pollution into the atmosphere as possible, Vivid has been back bigger and better after postponing for two years due to covid. Featuring music, public discussions and a fuck ton of LEDs, Vivid is popular amongst kids who froth a sensory overload and newcomers to the city who want to immerse themselves into every activity possible.
However, due to these blackout warnings, Vivid organisers have been forced to frantically find other ways to keep the show going, lest people realise how expensive everything is when there’s no pretty lights left to distract them.
Luckily, the team has been able to swiftly improvise by getting a little bit creative – purchasing some Dolphin Lanterns and coloured cellophane.
Taking to their Instagram page, Vivid has assured that attendees will be ‘more than delighted’ by the display of dazzling lights and have encouraged them to ‘explore their childlike wonder.’
More to come.
