Melbournians Say The Darndest Things

I would chuckle, but I'm scared a Melbourne reader will scorn me in the comments and point out that Magnets are a neo-indie-minimalist-scream-rock band who I am too much of a philistine to have ever heard of.

So I'll just say it's cute.


Socioclean is an Idiot

Socioclean claims to help you protect your online reputation by scanning your profile (status updates, wall posts, groups and photo captions and comments) and alert you to all the naughtiness you've accumulated over the years.

I expected to do relatively badly but this is ridiculous!! CODE RED, PEOPLE!!!

And what are the areas I need to work on?? Sex, drugs, alcohol, profanity and RACISM?? WTF? WTFFFF? I've been called a messy, sweary whore too many times for it to have any impact (and that's just by my mum), but I'm pretty sure I've never been called a racist. So I went to investigate.

These are the terms that Sociotwat classed as RACIAL:

Freaking hilarious. And yes, I do count myself lucky to be gainfully employed, especially considering I am a Social Media Guru Professional.

Area Man Constantly Mentioning He Doesn't Own A Television

This Onion article reminded me of my intense hatred for people who don't have televisions. In my book they're on par with people who use the phrase "close personal friend," women who breastfeed their children until mid-primary school, paedophiles and folks who claim to value 'authenticity.'


CHAPEL HILL, NC–Area resident Jonathan Green does not own a television, a fact he repeatedly points out to friends, family, and coworkers–as well as to his mailman, neighborhood convenience-store clerks, and the man who cleans the hallways in his apartment building. 
"I, personally, would rather spend my time doing something useful than watch television," Green told a random woman Monday at the Suds 'N' Duds Laundromat, noticing the establishment's wall-mounted TV. "I don't even own one."
According to Melinda Elkins, a coworker of Green's at The Frame Job, a Chapel Hill picture-frame shop, Green steers the conversation toward television whenever possible, just so he can mention not owning one.

Yet, here it is. I have no idea what this site is attempting to do, but I'm still pretty sure it's not doing it.

Someone's Taking Her Osteo-Ease!

Lorraine, the charmingly senile Dancing Queen has been banned from Britain's Got Talent. This is where  arguments against ageism in TV actually fail to hold any water at all.

Excellent mojo face Lorraine! YOU WAS ROBBED!

Brian Cox: Wonders of the Stoner System

Ha! HA HA HA! Brian Cox, your uppance has come.

This poncey Mancunian physicist has long given me the irrits with his floppy hair, rock band past and regular BBC appearances every time CERN makes a proton or whatevs.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I don't believe in black holes. There. I said it.


Daily Llama


The most disturbing thing about this is that CathieMay15 thinks this is a Vengaboys song. How very dare you CathieMay??? The Outhere Brothers were a one-hit-wonder band in the 90s. The Vengaboys were a pivotal stage in pop history and defined the way a generation thought about partying, public transport and Spanish island clubbing.

What do they teach kids in schools today?

Oh wait -

Trace Adkins: Hot Mama

I think Country & Western is a lot like Australia's Funniest Home Video Show and the Spice Girls.

You spend years, or even decades denying you enjoy it to everyone you know including yourself. But then you realise - I don't give a fuck who judges me for it - THIS SHIT IS FUCKING EPIC. HOW COULD I NOT HAVE REALISED THIS YEARS AGO? OMG I'M SEARCHING THIS ON FACEBOOK AND LIKING ALL 61 RELATED PAGES.

Meanwhile on Twitter: Stephen Colbert Pwns Right to Life D-Bag

From The State Column:

Arizona U.S. Senator Jon Kyl was the unfortunate topic of both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report Monday, with both hosts skewering the Arizona Republican over recent remarks made concerning Planned Parenthood.

“If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parent, which is well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does.” Mr. Kyl said during a Senate floor speech.

Following the remark, a number of news networks questioned the statement resulting in a response from Mr. Kyl’s office. 

“His remark was not intended to be a factual statement, rather to illustrate that Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives millions in taxpayer dollars, does subsidize abortions,” Mr. Kyl’s office said in a statement, to which Mr. Colbert and Mr. Stewart teed off.

“That’s unbelievable. As in it’s not true,” Mr. Colbert said. Mr. Colbert went on to offer a number of statements that were not intended to be factual.

“I would love to see that statistic checked…by anyone,” Mr. Stewart chided. “I get those numbers mixed up. Is it three percent, or is it ninety percent?”

Interspecies Friendship: Kitteh + Dolphins

OMG you guys BBFs!

PS That awkward esky-nuzzling behaviour when the cat semi wigs out and doesn't know what to do cos it wants to keep nuzzling the dolphin but is a bit scared the dolphin may have just blown it off - that's the feline equivalent of pretending to SMS someone when you're waiting for someone at a bar.

Tim Minchin's beat poetry narration of meeting that chick at a dinner party set to awesome animation.

And of course, when Tim Minchin meets that chick, he doesn't bite his tongue and then bitch about it later or send a vaguely vexed tweet from the toilet or angrily string together a weak character attack loosely cloaked in an argument for reason in the face of 'spirituality.' He fucking owns the bitch and makes it fucking rhyme.

Hipster Wishes

Candy Chang is an artist with a dream, a dream to give hipsters a voice and a sticky, rectangular platform on which to whinge about the lack of affordable organic produce in their inner suburban neighbourhoods.

Candy has already prepared for phase two of the project, I Wish This Wasn't, which will give the hipsters a chance to vent their frustrations about the soulless bourgeois gentrification of their suburbs immediately after their original wishes are granted.
