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.”

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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.

Also let me repeat - I havent seen the show.

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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

Worried too. The medevac bill might turn out to be a bit of a self-own. I was talking to someone who works in parliament on the weekend, and she said this didn't really need legislation, it could have been managed procedurally, it was really just about the symbolism of a govt not in control of legislation. Really hope labor haven't stuffed it up, can't handle another three years of Morrison

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.

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
