Vale Robin Williams

While socky wants to rif on the possible (but unlikely and rather unkind and unfunny ) idea of Robin Williams passing I can’t help but think about  the parts of his back catalogue that I remember fondly.

You see while many will be focusing Williams’ ability to make people laugh I like the shear humanity of the man that shone through in so many of his movie roles

The world is a better place because it had Robin Williams in it but its also a much sadder one today now that he has taken that last bow it is a poorer and far too sombre place.

A better truth revealed


There was this picture doing the rounds on twitter it was all based upon the rather stupid notion that our children would suffer because of the repeal of he carbon tax. I saw the seed of a better truth and with a little “graphical manipulation” I found it.

Enjoying the Polls

Weird Al Yankovic, Foil

On a lighter note I share this clever new spoof song from Weird Al Yankovic

Isn’t that just a lovely effort from the curly haired man?

Scoring one for the good guys

Managed to get another one up on QandA last night, first one for a while:

As my most obsessive  fan was having the night off he will undoubtedly be spitting chips that he missed it.

My learned friend on the other hand was all over it like a rash… ah that brings back memories

The other tribe of indigenous Aussie culture.

I am by nature rather eclectic in my viewing habits when it comes to broadcast TV I actually even watch some shows on SBS  and among that channel’s offerings   I have enjoyed several of the productions from Paul Fenech,” Fat Pizza” and “Housos” are both quite clever pieces of over the top satire and once you hey past the rather amateur acting and production values both programs demonstrate a clear affection for the subculture that they satirise . the Advertising for the new program to be screened on Seven Mate  shows some promise of the satire being turned up to eleven.

Tasmania is the bogan capital of Australia and if you’re seeking bogans in the ACT look no further than the nation’s parliament.

These are just some of the findings to come out of a “bogan odyssey” completed by self-proclaimed boganologist Paul Fenech.

If I was thinking about a holiday in Australia and I saw this, I’d probably be scared

With the other two members of his crack team, Shazza (Elle Dawe) and Kev the Kiwi (Kevin Taumata), who will be familiar from the controversial SBS series Housos, Fenech has visited every state for a new 7Mate series called Bogan Hunters.

“There are plenty of places in each state,” he says. “Start in the centre of a city and drive for about 35 minutes minimum into the suburbs and you will find a bogan area.

“Tasmania has the top-shelf, black-label bogans. There’s an element of boganicity there that is worthy of another 15 years of social study.”

And the epicentre of Tasmanian bogan culture is in a suburb of Launceston, according to Fenech.

“It’s a place called Ravenswood, which they told us not to go to because we’d get stabbed,” he says. “But we didn’t get stabbed and it was all nice.”

From the promo it looks as if this program will also be taking a very big bite at the many reality shows that populate the Mate (and other Freeview channels ) schedule. You know,  the shows like “Auction Hunters” “Toy Hunters”  , “Swamp people”, “Pawn Stars”, “American Pickers” ect ect ect. Now I personally know more than a few “Bogans ” many of whom are  great people who would give you the shirt of their backs if you were a mate in trouble, they may not always be the most self aware folk but they are at generally an alright group as long as you understand and respect  their culture and, more importantly, you don’t try to patronise them. Sadly, far too many of the Late sipping brethren have more affection for every other  migrant or religious ethnicity than they do for the other tribe of indigenous Aussie culture.

The latest from the IPCC

As is my want I have been dabbling with commenting at the Guardian and its an interesting game of cat and mouse to see just what I can get past the moderators  who are quite amusingly incredibly politically correct.  They have a most incredibly biased moderation and they give free reign to the Millenarian catastrophe fans of the  parsimonious Green persuasion. its the sort of challenge that I enjoy a great deal . Quite predictably they are having a sort of masturbatory online orgasm with the releases of the  IPCC  and treating this political document as if its John Smiths golden pages or the stone slabs brought down from the mountain by Moses but from what I have seen its very much a case of “same old same old” tosh that they have been peddling for years. About the only tick that I can give the document is that it does seem to contain a tacit concession that mitigation can not be made to work at a global level. Considering how long they have had to prepare this political document it don’t amount to much.  James Delingpole has a lovely satirical take on it:

The really scary thing about James piece is that many of the misanthropic Greenies are dreaming of  the predicted apocolypse with a sort of sadomasochistic delight at the prospect that their predictions  will mean millions dead dying or suffering unremitting misery. I am only surprised that they have not yet decided that things like the Ebola outbreak in Africa is a good thing and that it may just be a damn good idea to propagate similar  pandemics around the world to cure the planet of the human disease

Bigger Bolt, tighter nuts

While I don’t always agree with the things Andrew says I do warmly welcome his return to the Sunday morning TV schedule because I just love to see the counterpoint of his show compared to “Insiders” on a Sunday morning
