Arias '08

Some popular Australian stuff released this year or so:

YouTube - The Presets - This Boy's In Love

YouTube - Gabriella Cilmi 'Sweet About Me'

YouTube - Mobin Master - Show Me Love

I guess that Nick Cave fucker will probably turn up, too.

Anyway, Hamish and Andy are fucking terrible hosts and I wish their stupid little cable antic resulted in death.

Uh, so this Veronicas performance is surprisingly energized. Nice work, ladies.

You don't like Hamish and Andy?!?! Or just their hosting capabilities?

To be honest, I've never been much interested in the Arias. I don't listen to a lot of our music, and is it just me are the same things nominated in every. bloody. category.

And I hate that Pink song.

They're just not funny. Sorry, little Danny.

Yeah, I never give a damn about it, but it's on, so I thought I'd give it a bash. Haven't watched in full since 98 or something, when Paul McDermott hosted. That wasn't too popular, he fucked it up a bit if I recall correctly.

I hate Pink.

Damn You must be immune to the bug. I think they're a liiiiitle overrated, but still quite good. Do you watch them on rove?

Paul McDermott (not gay is he? ) I'd love to see videos of him screwing it up. I remember Wendy Harmes or whatever her name is screwing up like the logies or something.

I saw the landmower thing.

Gabbi and Presets cleaned up hopefully, I hope Kylie got a gong for X. The rest can go and shove it. Australia needs a new Eskimo Joe album.

Gabriella Cilmi fucking rocks. Bit of an Aloud biter, but she's still awesome.

Does anyone remember The Cat Empire? They made that incredibly stupid song "Hello," but I kinda dig 'em

Clearly I do not listen to nearly enough Australian music.

Presets won album of the year. I think one of them was way coky when they were doing their thanks.

My kids have been listening to Cat Empire for a couple years now and they like em too. They like Cities and The Cat Empire (1st?) album.

I watched about 10 minutes of the Arias, which included Pink driving the lawnmower on stage. And Gabriella Cilmi winning her 467974647970th Aria. The lawnmover made me laugh. And if I never hear Sweet About Me again it will be too soon.

And include me in the "I don't get Hamish and Andy" group, tho' if I were a supermodel I'd rather shag Andy than Hamish. Though if I were a supermodel I'd be shagging mega rock stars rather than Andy.... And I prob wouldn't be on Interference talking about Hamish and Andy.....

I can't stand pretty much any comedian affiliated with Rove. Probably missing someone half-decent by generalizing like that, but in general Hamish and Andy are pretty good examples of why most Australian comedy sucks right now. Anyone could be doing the shtick and jokes they do.

Paul is way not gay, and I think that isn't the first time you've asked me that. Yeah, that Arias was a mess. It was when Nat Imbruglia cleaned up for the first time, got like eight or something? More than Cimli at least, I think. But I think that was still back when Good News Week was on the ABC, so he wasn't particularly mainstream - it may have explained the bad reception.

I usually like Hamish and Andy but didn't think much of their hosting stint.

I like Gabriella Cilmi but god does she really draaawwss oouuuuut the words when she speaks, And her brashness feels like she's trying to overcompensate too much. Oh well, she's only 17.

Pink looks and acts more and more like a bloody cartoon and her new song stinks,

Presets guys look like a couple of accountants when they're not wearing silly masks but I thought they gave the most entertaining performance of the night,
