Ow! Michael Jackson night! This should be good. He has an incredible back catalogue, so song choice will be a big factor. We open the night with a group rendition of ‘Don’t Stop Til’ You Get Enough’, one of my favourite MJ songs. So funky. So fresh. Teale sings his bit, and sounds out of place and crappy, and I suddenly have hope that he’ll be eliminated this week. Jacko is too cool for Teale. Even Luke sounds better than him! I may be dancing in my seat.
Hellooooo happy flower people, and welcome to the results show for Oz Idol’s Rolling Stones night. It was a night full of weirdness and good songs and goodness and weird songs. I’m a fairly hugemongous Rolling Stones fan, which may have played into my general disgust at the whole night. Disgust!
Well well well. I know this is later than usual, but hey; suck it. At least I get off my (metaphorical) arse and write a meaningless post about a reality television show every now and then – what do you do? Huh? Oh, you have a legitimate job? Oh, I see.
Monday is music day over at Landslide. Check it for new music and a few handpicked classics.
Oh and I’ll be recapping tonight’s Oz Idol ABBA night results. Jeez, that was a bad night for the Australian music industry. I mean, ABBA? C’mon.
Tonight we’re in lovely [I missed the first few minutes], and boy is it [should have tuned in on time]! We meet a young poet named IForget, whose poetry is as forgettable as his forgetful face forget forget. We’re treated to some boring stuff, and then we’re introduced to [fuck, gotta pay more attention], a 16 year old lad who is as nervous as hell. He manages the nerves well though, and gives a great audition. Seriously, massive props. He can sing really well.
Apparently Jessica Modigliani or whatever her name is – one half of Australian pop twins The Veronicas – has taken some nudes, and somehow they’ve been leaked online. Everyone knows that the true path to fame and fortune is boobs, so I can’t fault her there.

The hype surrounding them made me avoid them like the plague initially, but I’ve now realised that Arctic Monkeys are actually quite good.
Mash-ups are, generally speaking, always fun (see what I did there?).
If you don’t already like Girl Talk, you should.
The Ancient Greeks had no word for the colour blue. In the Iliad, Homer describes the sky as being bronze, because of the confusion during translation.
Robots will rule the world someday. Trust me on this one…
Never Mind The Buzzcocks is approximately 700 times better than Spicks And Specks. If you’re an Aussie that has not yet been exposed to the superior NMTB, check it out. The host is a lovely young man named Simon, and Bill Bailey is a team captain. Manny from Black Books!
Russell Brand is pretty good. Ponderland, especially.
If I could marry a website, I’d marry IMDb.
