The section on Oz has Neville and Walsh meeting in "late 1963 or early 1964". That is indeed about the time that people from the University of Technology (former name of UNSW) started to associate with the Sydney Push. But the resultant publication is said to have "hit the streets on April Fool's Day, 1963". Obviously a contradiction. The (incomplete) data at the National; Library of Australia suggests a later timeframe. However, I have a personal recollection of helping to relay an Oz story (about Sir Frank Packer's Teleword competition) to Richard in early 1963. I may still have some early copies, so will try to hunt 'em down. Also, in her book Sex and Anarchy: The life and death of the Sydney Push, Ann Coombs wrote (at p 247) that Sydney's Oz started in 1963. I suggest that we revise the meeting date to "late 1962 or early 1963"-- after allowing time for other comments. Cheers Bjenks (talk) 09:31, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good to me - it predates my birth by a few years....Casliber (talk · contribs) 02:15, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Post from "me", whoever "me" is[edit]

Hopefully this edit will be edited out etc. Hi it's me again. Richard Neville's physical appearance has been partially assumed by a doctor who used to run something they called The Divine Light Mission 1973 to 1980? She had a hobby called psychiatry she never mentioned to anyone who attended a hall meeting. Divine Light Mission was really criticized but it was alright o tell state police here how Sarah would drive me to town and back home after those meetings. We didn't date or anything. But I knew her father personally also. Great guy. But about Richard Neville. Samantha who came to me in 1980 told me a month before he died that he was her next door neighbour when she lived in Sydney. Can you believe this? I said to her, I studied PLAYPOWER and she couldn't believe it. She was blissfully ignorant but by the time she told me this stuff Sarah's "crew" had made her become dependent on drugs. Anyway, one of Nevile's books was about some guy who was a serial killer in Asia using the name Charles Sobraj or something. But I knew of a local link to the Charles Manson gang in California, to here, Norwood, south australia. I was not alone in knowing that, and the Starwars stuff was all based upon those links. I'd like to know how much they paid the informant. So Wikipedia, what I wrote before regarding why The Beatles broke up was not 100% true in fact. But it was close enough as a coded explanation. Some people thing Sgt Peppers was about hart street Mitcham. It's near Dover street and so they have created a fake identity interstate of a "girl" I used to "go with" so I'd think she lived in Dover Street, opposite Hart Street. [that would be my california church srf hart of heaven refernces] her name is Dr Anne Brewster. She's quite screwy and slightly too "butch" but a lot of information came to me from her. So, that isn't true either. Sgt Peppers lonely hearts club band was maybe about a person. he is not Arnold of Grace Street who == gov Arnold of California. no not at all. So, baby, to say they broke up because Heart Transplants came along is "almost" correct. But not actually really in point of detail. But it was a person. Now they will go through school records to find a persons name to fit the concept album and then somehow erase the links. They have a plan which I have seen. It's pretty stupid but then the mafia always was wasn't it? Even the Russian mafia etc. OK? So Richard Neville's physical appearance now he's deceased appears to have been assumed partially by Dr. Sarah Mares. Ad she really looks awful due to her assuming other persons identities at a physical level or something. But I wonder how her sister Helen is and how are her kids or kid? Because academics are involved they are at the center of this universe. etc. But I'm not taken in or buying it so, there. Richard Neville was a neighbor of a friend named Samantha. It wasn't very good writings, but still a local who wasn't put up to it by the mafia etc. (It should be noted & realised what this could mean: the Rolling Stone Magazine has got details about Dr. Anne Brewster and what happened November 22 1963, from me; and they didn't help one ioata. Quite the opposite, they attacked witnesses and evidence and superimposed, like Murdock and the Washington Post do, their desired "reality" or/and explanation. They just don't wish to look as plain stupid as they actually are or were. Or politically wrong. etc) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:19, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
