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.”

seagulls are assholes (Trayce), Thursday, 16 July 2009 04:46 (ten years ago) link

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

easily-led zeppelin (haitch), Thursday, 16 July 2009 04:54 (ten years ago) link

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 (ten 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 (ten years ago) link

Also let me repeat - I havent seen the show.

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

probably not your thing

cymbal is more bronze than you (electricsound), Thursday, 16 July 2009 06:58 (ten 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 (ten 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 (ten 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 (ten 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 (ten years ago) link

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

cymbal is more bronze than you (electricsound), Thursday, 16 July 2009 13:20 (ten years ago) link

Yes, they should shut the fuck up anout that and start talking up the wonderful opportunities we have to mine the things that go into renewable tech that we have boatloads of in Australia (Cobalt, Nickel, Graphite) or get on board the hydrogen train ( not a train obviously, at least not in Australia, yet)

At least we can expect Morrison to wedge his foot firmly in mouth a few times between now and May.

On my walk to the tram this morning I found an abandoned go11iw0g on the pavement. Adored childhood toy or not I stuffed it straight in the nearest bin. It still astounds me how this shit hasn’t some level of acceptability here, only a couple of years ago the mother and baby store was displaying these nasty things in the window.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 30 April 2019 22:00 (three months ago) link

I'm p sure that it's because we had such a low proportion of non-white African immigrants - it literally never registered with ppl as representing anything about humans, just a fantasy figure from British childrens books. which we had vastly more of than local ones, and substantially more than American ones.

from a youtube comment under Teenage Mullet Fury:

The 'unisex salon' joke was funny when this video came out in the 90's. Back then Aus society still had (and glorified) the differences in the sexes. Guys wouldn't go to 'unisex' salons without getting bagged. So this video was once at the forefront of feminist cultural marxism. Fuck Merrick & Rosso, your funny cunts but faaarrk, look what your helping
