I don't think that'd be difficult at all.

And yeah, you're right about the target audience thing. I just read them for escapism, mostly.

Oh gods, Stuck (acoustic) just came up. I might just fall asleep at the keyboaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I don't watch TV for precisely that reason. I have too many things lying around that could cause a lot of collateral damage in the room.

That, and the lead actor from CSI: Miami seriously shits me up the wall.

Just because I critique shit titles doesn't mean I'm any good at coming up with them myself.

One thing I love about Melbourne University is that I don't have to title my essays, unlike in Queensland where titles were required. In my own fiction writing, I just steal song lyrics I like.

Also, that sounds like a pretty cool concept you've got there.

I would totally read a graphic novel with that title.

... that speaks for itself.

How about "Hello Hello, (hola!)!"

I'm planning on going to bed between 1-2am. Just more plugging away at the Royal Historical Society for me tomorrow. Though I do need to write some stuff tonight about Melbourne's old Fish Markets. I think I posted a photo of the Fish Markets building before, a beautiful structure on the intersection of Flinders and Spencer Streets. The people who tore it down should be prosecuted.

I only watch three shows a week at the moment: Spicks & Specks, SBS World News, and Good News Week. GNW requires watching 10 and suffering their godawful ads.

Can't wait for Top Gear and The Chaser to come back.

Dear 15 year old boys who make Big Mouth a ratings success,

At 2am tonight, please sneak onto the computer, load Google, and type in "boobies". I promise you, the results will be more exciting than any episode of Big Mouth you watch behind your parents' backs.

Regards,
People who want shit shows to stop rating well

I watch none of the above... Hmmm, which reminds me, I need to see if Top Gear have finished their new season yet.

Spicks & Specks and GNW bring the lulz. So does SBS World News whenever George Bush is on!

I did see an ad for Top Gear's new season "coming soon!" when I was watching SBS sometime last week ...

According to the Top Gear website, they're not there yet. Wikipedia agrees.

Which means, if the ABC is to be trusted, that we'll actually get Season 11 at the same time as the UK!

Unless of course the ABC means Season 10, which wouldn't surprise me at all.

What the hell is Big Mouth?

On second thought, I don't think I want to know, do I?
