Floods in eastern SA, too. Just like old times at my cousin's place in Naracoorte.

Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane) - Flooded

Surprised this hasn't been posted.

Suncorp Stadium ravaged by floods | The Daily Telegraph

U2 played there a little over a month ago.

I was there and it puts some context around the terrible floods this week in Brisbane.

Apparently some flooding in northern Tassie too.

Floods everywhere except where water is needed, WA.

also, my mum raised a good point this morning. given that Oprah was in Australia in December, promoting, you'd have thought she'd've sent a message of support or condolences? i can't remember anything.

edit. ah. http://www.smh.com.au/business/queen...113-19p8k.html

So I'm on facebook for the first time in longer than I should have been:

Quote:
Daniel Jack Paproth Voting for Pendulum's remix of the ABC News theme in triple j's hottest 100...
Okay, that's perfectly fine and true, but then...

Quote:
Whiskey William Loftus Hopson Voting for ANYTHING in the Hottest 100, dude. Triple J is fucking Bogan FM.
As much as I like TBL, the comments lead a shitload to be desired. I can understand not liking JJJ - but how in god's name is it exclusively a bogan channel? Fucking hell, it's not Fresh or Nova. I listened to Triple J on the way to a mate's place today, am I suddenly a maXXXX superdry import beer drinking Indian basher?

Even I can't fathom that. And you know me.

Okay, that guy has Easy Rider as one of his favourite movies. He's got to be taking the piss.

... I mean, nobody actually enjoyed Easy Rider, did they?

The Dennis Hopper one. Please, no matter how many people tell you how important it was to 60's cinema and the counterculture, don't watch it. Just watch the Nicholson scenes on Youtube or something. It's hammy, boring tosh.

It's the motorcycle through the US movie, yes? It's got a 7.3/10 rating on the site.

I thought Triple J was pretty much Un-Bogan FM! I mean, it wouldn't go NEAR Cold Chisel or AC/DC; almost any other station would sooner play bogan favourites. It could hardly be less bogan.

Though if we want to talk Triple J stereotypes, this is pretty much on the money: How to be a J-fag - Rate Your Music
