2010 Grammy Awards

4 comments Sunday, January 31, 2010

Apparently Stevie Nicks and Taylor Swift are doing a MEDLEY of three songs.

'Rhiannon' - Fleetwood Mac

'You Belong With Me' - Taylor Swift


'Today Was A Fairytale' - Taylor Swift.


Medley's never work. This almost guarantees to destroy 'Rhiannon'. 

Stevie must be back on the cocaine to have agreed to do this.

This is like John Lennon doing a duet with the Jonas Brothers. 

If Taylor appears on stage dressed in the full Stevie Nicks 'gypsy' style outfit, I will throw a chair at someone. 

What we really need is for Kanye West to appear unannounced on stage..

"Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish but Stevie Nicks does the best 'Rhiannon' of all time!"

just on a side note..

My laptop is being an absolute moron as of late. It's not allowing me to comment on blogspot hosted blogs that don't have a pop up box for the comments. Just thought I'd let you all know so that you don't think I'm being a twat and not commenting your posts, I promise that I have been reading them though :)

If anyone knows how I can fix this little inconvenience in my life, please comment on here or shoot me an email at

Australia Day sucks.

4 comments Monday, January 25, 2010

Well I seem to be having a good week for opposing different aspects of various holidays.

My latest whinge topic is Australia Day.

There is so many things wrong with this day, I don't even know where to begin. 

January 26th 1778. The day that hundreds of European settlers arrived in Botany Bay on the First Fleet. This was also the day that many, many Aboriginal people lost their lives by being murdered, simply for existing. Our ancestors marched right into someone else's home and killed these people for absolutely no good reason. 

A large majority of the Aboriginal or Indigenous community of Australia refer to Australia Day as 'Invasion Day' and I think that's pretty spot on. It's disgusting the way these innocent people were treated by the Europeans. We shouldn't be celebrating our country on this date. It's like celebrating the fact that our ancestors came in and killed for no reason.

The way people celebrate it also gives me something to complain about.

Australia Day celebrations have turned into a VB drinking/meat eating/flag wearing/other race hating competition. Being Australian shouldn't be about how many beers you can skull, or if you wear thongs or watch the Cricket. Being Australian should be about being thankful that we live in a pretty peaceful environment, that we have a good health and schooling system (these don't even exist in some countries), that we have social security and that we don't have bombs dropped on our heads each week. 

Unfortunately, Australia has quite a number of bogans. The sad thing is that the individuals which engage in such seedy behaviour are proud of it. How is this something to be proud of? Wearing tshirts bearing the slogan "We grew here, you flew here" or one with "F*ck off, we're full" inside the outline of Australia is apparently considered 'cool'? People need to learn respect, humility and appreciation for how lucky they have it and how worse off they could be.

Back to Australia Day being on such an inappropriate date, it's such a tough debate as to which date it should be shifted to. 

January 1st is an option as it's the anniversary of when all the states federated to become one nation in 1901. People argue that this shouldn't happen because January 1st is already New Years Day and a public holiday in itself.

Anzac Day (25th April) has also been suggested but many don't believe it's a good idea as this day belongs solely to the ANZAC's who fought so hard for our country. 


I like the idea of having Australia Day on 13th February. The anniversary of the date when Prime Minister Kevin Rudd made the formal apology to the Stolen Generation of Aboriginals. It was such a day of cultural awareness and reconciliation and it felt like everyone in this country was on the same level. The Government will never change the date to this though because unfortunately there is such a huge population of individuals who were totally against the formal apology.

I understand that Australia Day has forever been known to fall on January 26th and we're all used to it, but surely we can compromise a bit and try and empathise with the Aboriginal community because of what happened on that date all those years ago. 

Also, on a side note- how do people get away with wearing flags as capes or how do companies even get away with making thongs, bikini's, shorts etc with the Australian flag on it? It's considered an offence to have the Australian flag touch the ground when being pulled down from a flagpole. This isn't even logical if people are allowed to wear the flag as a bikini. 

What do you think? Should Australia Day be changed? If so, what date should it be?

My 'Big Day Out' .... at Concord Hospital.

11 comments Saturday, January 23, 2010
A couple of you might remember my excitement for the 2010 Big Day Out.

I only have one word to describe what should have been a fun, free spirited, musically enriching event: disaster.

I won't go into hectic detailing here but to cut a long story short, I fainted within 45 MINUTES OF ARRIVING. I didn't get to see any bands, definitely not Lily Allen, but spent most of the day in hospital recieving stitches on my skull. (You really don't want to know what sort of a state my cream crocheted vest was in)

Just to clarify- I wasn't under the influence of alcohol and certainly not drugs. The doctor who treated me diagnosed it as a faint from the heat. It was around 45 degrees celsius (around 113 degrees fahrenheit) that day and I wasn't the only one who suffered heat exhaustion.

This article says that 180 people had been treated for dehydration but just six of us lucky ones were taken to hospital.

All in all though it was an amazing day, judging by the average Facebook status update. I also heard that Lily Allen absolutely went off.


On a serious note though, if you're planning to go to any festivals this Summer; make sure you keep your fluids up. I drank a whole bottle of water in the 1/2 hour leading up to my collapse, obviously that wasn't enough. Have a good breakfast, drink lots of fluids and wear a hat.

Take it from someone who has stitches in the back of their head :P

Easter is early.

5 comments Tuesday, January 19, 2010
So, we're just a few weeks into January and the supermarket shelves are already spilling with Easter Eggs.

Easter is not until April.

Talk about a complete commercialisation of what is supposed to be a religious holiday. I'm sure that every year, the release date of Easter merchandise is brought forward one week earlier each time.

I am confident that the majority of children (not brought up in a Catholic environment) wouldn't be able to tell you what Easter is all about. For that matter, there's probably a fair few adults who are in the same situation.

I'm not the most religious person myself, but I know the story of Easter and Christmas. And I think that these apparent "religious holidays" have now become a commercialised abomination.

Give it say, until August, and the supermarkets will already be selling bonbons and tinsel. I'm all for being organised, but isn't this taking it a little bit far?

Back to Easter- perhaps I'm expecting too much from the children of today, but is it not a little bit obvious to kids (I don't mean 2 year olds. I mean 6+ year olds) when every aisle end has Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, Easter hens, Easter ducks and every other animal in chocolate form displayed, and then the "Easter Bunny" comes months later and delivers chocolate eggs to their house, hiding them in a variety of locations?

Surely it's just a little bit obvious?

Or is the average child just getting dumber and confectionary companies reaping the benefits?

Just for the "lolz" - Giant adult film stops traffic.

2 comments Sunday, January 17, 2010

AN enormous television screen showing a prnographic film caused a midnight traffic jam in central Moscow on Thursday as stunned motorists slammed on the brakes to gawk at the writhing naked bodies.

The owner of the advertising screen, which sits atop a main road about 2km south of the Kremlin, told the state-run RIA news agency that hackers had broken into the screen's computer system and turned on the prn.

"They were either acting out of hooliganism or were from a rival company," Viktor Laptev, commercial director of advertising firm, told RIA.

Ha ha. As the blog title suggests, I reposted this article because of it's absolute hilarity.

Imagine if this happened in Australia. People like Kevin Rudd would have had a field day telling the press how disgusted they were, when in reality, they probably secretly enjoyed it.

Sarah Palin- future television correspondent.

5 comments Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Surely when you read the title of this post, you thought as I did "What the fuck?"

But yes, unfortunately- Sarah Palin has signed on with Fox News as a political commentator and part time host.
I feel sorry for all the American people who have to be subjected to her every day.
But then again, if you think Fox News is good- you probably deserve to see her every day.

The announcement that she will be joining their current line up has spawned another one of Palin's "I don't have a brain" comments:

"I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News. It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news"


It's a universally known fact that Fox News shows extreme bias towards right wing politics. They're not exactly subtle about their conservative views. It's not even an exaggeration to say that Fox News is almost comic in political reporting style.

I'm sure Sarah Palin will just add to this surge of political bias.

If you're not familiar with the crap that Palin goes on about normally, here's a few quotes for entertainment purposes:

"You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska."/I can see Russia from my house!

"They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan."

"There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women." (She misquoted former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, who said women should "help" other women.")

"All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." (Palin was asked what magazines and/or newspapers she reads regularly.)

Silly, Silly, Silly.

Model Catherine McNeil and MTV presenter Ruby Rose have announced their plans to tie the knot.

Ruby posted on her Facebook: "Woof Woof Rose is engaged to Meow Meow McNeil".

As same sex marriage is not allowed here in Australia, it is alleged that the couple are wanting to get married in Canada.

Congratulations to the happy couple :) :)

Jennifer Hawkins, airbrush free.

6 comments Monday, January 4, 2010
Jennifer Hawkins is posing nude and unphotoshopped on the cover of this month's Marie Claire magazine.

There is a lot of debate about this magazine cover, whether or not it promotes positive body image, the "normality" of cellulite and wrinkeles or if it's sending out the right message.

My opinion on this is, if you want to promote the whole idea that nobody's perfect- then you don't use a SUPERMODEL for this.
I'm the first to point out that supermodel's aren't perfect at all, but unfortunately in this day and age, supermodels don't really carry much weight on them.

I'm not at all saying to put a normal, everyday person on the cover of Marie Claire because that wouldn't generate sales and therefore not be the best idea for promoting positive body image. What I would like to see done, is that a celebrity or public figure is put on the cover. A celebrity or public figure who is not a model. Therefore, sales are still generated because the average reader recognises the celebrity. As the covergirl isn't a model, readers can more easily resonate with their body figure than what they could with a model.

All in all, it seems like a massive garner for publicity and an aim to have a big step up from what Sarah Murdoch did.
