Just realised I spelt Abi Tucker's name wrong on a previous post. I can't stand bad spelling.

Oh yeah, another thing. Yesterday, I saw the tentative track listing for a best of the Big Day Out 3cd compilation which should come out sometime next month. It's pretty bloody good with songs by Supergrass, Primal Scream, Roni Size, Iggy Pop, Ministry, Nick Cave, Prodigy, Beasts Of Bourbon, Magic Dirt and whoever else has graced the big ol' stage. Strangely/ironically enough, there isn't a song by Limp Bizkit on the collection!

"The Fellowship of the Ring" could have gone wrong in so many ways. As it is, though, I see it as nearly perfect: It's one of the best fantasy pictures ever made.
It throws down a daunting challenge to filmmakers everywhere, and even more so to the studios that back them. Audiences deserve the greatest you have in you. If you've made money off giving them anything less, it was just dumb luck. From now on, they'll know they have a right to magic.

Alrighty, got the first top 5 and it's from Lauren who runs the wonderful log, City Trash. It used be called To Design The Truth Would Be A Lie and I talked it up awhile ago. Like myself, she loves The Secret Life Of Us... You know I interviewed Abby Tucker earlier this year? Anyway, here's Lauren's top 5 for 2001!

Blueline Medic - The Apology Wars (actually this has to be number one cos it's so DAMN GOOD!)
Bodyjar - You Got Me a Girls Bike You Idiot! (the title says it all)
The Killchoir Project - No Love For The Haters (hc-melodic madness)
Warped - On The Make (raawwwwwkkkk!)
The Hives - Veni Vidi Vicious (so much fun)

Fave indian restaurant is 'Oh Calcutta!' on Main South Road in Adelaide.

This week's TV WEAK!!

The big TV rumour is that Sale Of Century will be axed next year. There’s speculation that it will be replaced by a game show hosted by Red Symons. This is a travesty. Glenn Ridge is one of Aussie Television’s true folk heroes. How could they dream of sacking the man who on his entrance to the set, every night quietly utters “Hi” to an imaginary figure before greeting viewers and studio audience? While Symons has a wider vocabulary (Ridge has only two adjectives, “great” and “fantastic”), Ridge’s sex appeal and gentility towards contestants is unrivalled.

Make your own Bruce Lee film!

Tacky gold plated, diamond encrusted luxury mobile phones. The old saying is right, money sure doesn't buy class.
Apparantly I'm not allowed to link to the KPMG website. They reckon I have to have a formal agreement with the company before I link to them. Looks like I just did. Born to be wild, eh?

Click here for some wacky but true corporate anthems. Awesome site.
A recent photo of Tony Danza!! EXCELLENT!!

This week's TV WEAK!

The non ratings season is back! Apart from the return of the awesome Two Fat Ladies (ABC, Weekdays, 6pm) and Jazz (ABC, Thursdays, 9.30pm), the rankest of rank turds now pilot, stink and crash. Much like Effie (SBS, Tuesdays, 8pm). What's more, the cricket is back. Oh dear. This is the time, TV WEAK and BBQ's come into their own.
