Melbourne does need more cool people, you know.

Ah, ok.

Sounds cool to me. Would it just be bands, or all artists?

Axver any other type of rules you think the competition would need before I started a nomination thread?

It'd be all artists, although the number included would depend completely on people's interest and the number of nominations people give. I'm hoping it would be something that would go on continuously with new people constantly joining in and along with how people's tastes change over time; each season would be different from the last

Current Prime Minister is Kevin Rudd of the Labour Party. Labour's left, but he belongs to the centrist faction (though still left in a US context). Been the PM since last year when the Liberal right wing government of John Howard got its arse kicked. The Liberals are now in disarray and Rudd should barely have to even TRY to win a second term.

There's a Liberal party still? I thought they became the Messed Up Party the moment Howard left office?

I think it's good as it is. It's probably something you can comfortably amend if anybody raises any good points before the show gets under way.

Weeeeell, election was last year, so re-election won't be for another... two, three years, if memory serves correctly.

Rudd 2010.

This will confuse SO many Americans. That makes it worth it.

Haha, good call. God, Brendan Nelson has to be the least popular person in Australia. It still makes me laugh so hard that his approval rating fell to NINE PERCENT.

NIIIIINE.

Aight, I'm gonna head off and try to sleep, so good morning, all!

Ax, I'll leave it to you to convince RBF that he needs to move to Melbourne. Also, let us know what you decide about the Amazon box set thing.

The rest of you, have fun!
