After a week of ~40C it's finally raining. Glorious.

It's good to have GNW back, as unfunny as Mikey Robbins & Claire Hooper are. Also I've had more than enough of Josh Thomas.

GNW? I gave up on that somewhere through its first resurrected season on 10. Mikey Robbins is too annoying, the guests usually too unfunny, and the forced commercial tie-ins can just be painful.

Just about any comedy is edgier when it's on ABC relative to the commercial networks, without the shackles of corporate sponsorship or being under the thumb of commercial interests. I've always admired The Chaser for sticking with the ABC despite the substantial sums of money offered to them by the commercials.

GNW will always be legendary because of Paul McD!

I'm a huge Paul McDermott fan, even if it did take Bonnie about three times to convince me he wasn't gay.

going to the comedy festival again this year, with the same chick i go with every year. we see Jason Bourne and Wil Anderson (if you don't like him but have never seen a full show of his, please go see him, his TV performances don't do him justice) every year but she wants to go see Josh Thomas as well... i probably will, just cos she's such an awesome chick so any excuse to hang out again is a good one!

on triple j's facebook: "HACK: Smoking weed as a teenager can bring on mental health problems at a younger age according to new research. An Aussie study has found marijuana users experienced psychosis 2.7 years earlier than non-cannabis users. Does this make you re-think or want to cut down on your weed smoking?"

375 comments in an hour the j-fags youth of today really do know everything.

‎"Mexico is calling for legalisation to take the money away from the criminals. The world is ready for the change, it's just last generations politicians that aren't."

these types of comments are a good example of why i never speak about politics and things in general that i don't know enough about. to my knowledge, Mexico's drug problem runs a fair bit deeper than that...

forgot about that. yeah he is. i think before Gruen Transfer a lot of people didn't like him because they'd only seen his gala performances, or a guest spot on GNW or something, and they just say he swears a lot and uses low-brow humour. but he's very smart and i won't forget his show two years ago when he'd just broken up with the love of his life after six years, it was quite touching.

Is there any part of this country that isn't a "natural disaster"?

Ben Elton tonight - should be interesting. Will watch because he is married to a Freo person (not that I think he isn't witty or clever or anything).

I would say Adelaide, but it's always a natural disaster.
