MASTERCHEF!!!!!!

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 (twelve 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 (twelve 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 (twelve 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 (twelve years ago) link

Also let me repeat - I havent seen the show.

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

probably not your thing

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

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

It’s been a great day to bury being an idiot. Dutton let out some refugees because he realised it’s cheaper to have them be productive members of society than keep them in a concentration hotel.

I’d hope this is a stopped clock moment but I assume he’s got something nasty up his sleeve.

Who in the name of fuck thought that was a good idea. I'd love to think this is Scomo's knighting Prince Philip moment, but I doubt it. Tired of being embarrassed by this country.

ScoMo has been on invasion day trolling his way around Queensland all week. All this culture war bollocks smells like an election coming.

I thought trying to forcibly give out handshakes during the bushfires would be the Knighting Price Philip moment, but it was merely a Raw Onion Eating moment. This'll probably be the same.

Where do you find all these fringe studies you post on Facebook?

KELLY: I find most of this from emails and messages on my Facebook Messenger. People send me stuff “have you seen this?”

How did you first come across (disproven and unproven COVID-19 treatments?

KELLY: I’ll tell ya how it started. A good 9 months ago someone sent me a YouTube video of a doctor ... He said ‘I’ve got information for the president of the United States, I’ve got this therapy and it’s highly successful, I’ve got to get this message to him.’ And I thought to myself, that’s a good, positive message.

Before I posted it, I checked the credibility of it. He had this long Jewish beard.

He was listening to a question about a ministerial staffer being raped in her office.

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Tuesday, 16 February 2021 06:37 (seven months ago) link

After two years thinking it was annoying to hear about a staffer getting raped at his place of employment, Scott's wife said "how about if it was our daughter?" and he though oh maybe it's bad it happened

Then he told the television cameras that he had gone through this process

Meanwhile, Eric Abetz:
"On Monday the First of March at the Hobart City Council’s citizenship ceremony, I casually asked the Honourable Senator Eric Abetz if the Minister allegedly accused of the alleged rape that occurred around 30 years ago was the Honourable Christian Porter MP. The Senator quickly responded that yes, it was the first law officer of the nation, Christian Porter, but not to worry, the woman is dead and the law will protect him. He then said, as for that Higgins girl, anybody who is so disgustingly drunk, who would sleep with anybody, could have slept with one of our spies and put the security of our nation at risk."

I want to encourage Australians, here, of course, there are issues, but think about where things were 20 years ago, 50 years ago, and I can tell you, go and ask your nan and she’ll tell you the real story about the good old days.

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Wednesday, 24 March 2021 02:42 (five months ago) link

if a listener’s phantom nana was willing to testify she’d most likely say it’s bleakly apparent things are the same as they ever were
