Yeah wtf is with everyone masturbating over that cravat wearing git.

Not that Ive seen the show, mind.

Apparently TISM had a spectacular rant about him recently I should go find it.

“By Christ, when your life's specialty is forcing another morsel of over-glazed lamb shank down your oily, globular, over-opinionated gullet, when, of all the things in the world men are called to do, of all the vocations of love and adventure,of all the trials of the emotions and amongst all the voyages of spirit mankind can embark upon, when, given this whole universe of possible callings, the one YOU choose is to sit on your crapulent crack and LAZILY WHINE about SOMEONE ELSE’S cooking, that's when YOU KNOW, you are at the very ACME of the BFW shit heap.”

m.pres is a fantastic TV character. would bro down with him before any TISM members, that's for sure!!

TISM split up in 2004 due to the terminal cancer of their guitarist, and the song Trayce is quoting came out eight years ago.

surm? lol (sic), Thursday, 16 July 2009 05:37 (thirteen years ago) link

OK so I had no idea it was an old song, I assumed RHB was just having a rant because of masterchef, the dude who posted it on his LJ was misleading dammit.

seagulls are assholes (Trayce), Thursday, 16 July 2009 06:47 (thirteen years ago) link

Also let me repeat - I havent seen the show.

seagulls are assholes (Trayce), Thursday, 16 July 2009 06:48 (thirteen years ago) link

Wait, what's wrong with cravats?

I'm Australian or some other weird nationality (King Boy Pato), Thursday, 16 July 2009 07:25 (thirteen years ago) link

haha sorry if that sounded like i was taking a pop atcha trayce. just thought it was funny that a band that hasn't been active for five years piped up about masterchef of all things!

easily-led zeppelin (haitch), Thursday, 16 July 2009 12:05 (thirteen years ago) link

They didnt! I was misled into thinking they did by a nong on my LJ who said "masterchef is shit and TISM said it best" and then quoted what I pasted.

I love cooking shows fwiw, I'd probably enjoy it! But I dislike reality and vote em offs IMMENSELY, and... really, I know this'll sound snobby but I'm fed up with TV.

seagulls are assholes (Trayce), Thursday, 16 July 2009 12:32 (thirteen years ago) link

In actualy fact y'all have misunderstood me really (my fault) - all I was really meaning was "wtf is the huge immense fuss for".

seagulls are assholes (Trayce), Thursday, 16 July 2009 12:33 (thirteen years ago) link

my personal fuss is that it's a good show n i dig watchin it

We all know from bitter experience that the ALP can't be trusted not to fuck up an easily winnable election, but I'm actually finding it hard to see how Ukulele Boy can get out of this fine mess. (And trust me, I have thought about it!!)

Pre-Raphaelite Brah (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 23 February 2022 10:49 (five months ago) link

Scomo gets back in because PUP Hoover up the protest vote and direct it back home. As soon as it’s decent scomo nomates gets Pantsed an it’s Dutton for Fuhrer.

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Wednesday, 23 February 2022 10:54 (five months ago) link

Interestingly I was at a BBQ on Saturday and got chatting to someone who lives next door to Antony Green. Apparently Green thinks a Coalition reelection is highly unlikely, so that gives me hope, despite what my gut is telling me

Zelda Zonk, Wednesday, 23 February 2022 10:59 (five months ago) link

No vote again, because Dutton did such a number on the immigration system it takes 3 years to become a citizen (and I even know who Ned Kelly and Donald Bradman are).

Not that it matters because this is Bandtland, but the Victorian socialists deserve my $2.68 for more posters.

If the Coalition get back in you will see some serious homicide being committed by this poster.

Pre-Raphaelite Brah (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 23 February 2022 11:31 (five months ago) link

The ALP have no traction with the SUV driving, negative geared cattle who will reliably return that shitstain and his ghouls to office. They’ll inevitably shift into hubris right at the moment it will fuck their chances terminally. Australians want comfort and big business to tuck them in at night, doesn’t matter if it comes with a Pentecostal ideology. I’m done with hope.

assert (matttkkkk), Wednesday, 23 February 2022 11:56 (five months ago) link

Yeah, the ALP is a bucket of weak piss, but still better than active cancer.

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Wednesday, 23 February 2022 22:13 (five months ago) link

Right now all who can save us are inner city Sydneyite voting for pro business nice white ladies who also a pro not setting the world on fire and are nicer to minorities (as long as they have money).

Beyond that we just hope frydenberg has enough dirt on Dutton.

I crossed the river last week and Frydo’s grinning bonce is on every street corner. You’ve got to vote for a potato or the wrong potato might get it.
