This place is insanely quiet these days. Have we actually...run out of discussion topics?

I fucking love Big Brother.

Is it essential viewing? No.

But I'll always watch it if it's on and I've got nothing better to do.

It could, however, be much more interesting if people were selected upon things beyond the surface.

Big Bother is pretty much the worst. I admit I watched a fair bit of the first season but I can't believe it still exists.

Personally, I'm just busy as hell.

Man, Gruen pulled out all the stops - and E.V.B. Sampson and Henry Heng BOTH made appearances! That was a classic. I've been wary before the last couple of seasons, wondering when Gruen's brilliant streak will finally end, but this bodes well.

The Chaser was pretty pedestrian though (don't tell Charlotte). The Bob Katter and Craig Emerson spots were inspired moves amidst a whole lot of "here's a cheap joke voiceover with a slightly funny picture we found". They can do much more cutting satire than that. Hopefully they'll pick up steam as the series progresses, but let's face it, this isn't 2007 any more.

The pitches were brilliant on Gruen tonight, which was great. No idea who Sampson or Heng are.

What do you mean by not 2007 anymore?

E.V.B. Sampson you should know well from Charlotte's old avatar/the clip they played at the start with "my son, Hugh". Henry Heng is that hilarious Family First jingle about "Henry Henry let's all vote for Henry/he's got a family". And I actually thought the pitches were the weakest part. The ALP one was particularly mediocre in terms of the intended brief.

I mean "not 2007 any more" in terms of that's when their political satire was both at its most cutting and its most influential. The second series of the War on Everything was undoubtedly their creative high water mark. Most episodes they made in 2006-07 are classics of Aussie comedy.

So who here thought the new album forum could possibly get any worse than it had been in the dead time between previous albums?

Watching two wankers take each other down has some pretty good entertainment value though.

Now it's a shitfight over whether The National's singer is good or bad.

What a shock, Schloop-a-loop yet again proves himself incapable of reasonable discussion!

It's a shame because he's not entirely wrong about The National either. I don't know what this forum or RYM sees in that band.

I don't know much about them other than the fact that one of their new songs had a video which was a remake of a Russian band's from about 20 years ago.

I'm going to say that B&C ain't all that perfect either.
