MASTERCHEF!!!!!!

I'm Australian or some other weird nationality (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 15 July 2009 12:35 (ten years ago) link

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.”

cymbal is more bronze than you (electricsound), Thursday, 16 July 2009 04:53 (ten years ago) link

i mean what are they doing at this point, whining about someone whining about food? certainly don't appear to be making records!

xp ^^ this cat knows what's up

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

Because maybe I was asking "what is the big fuss" so someone could actually EXPLAIN IT TO ME, jesus get some reading comprehension people, not everything I say is a complaint.

- Masterchef 2
- 1000 Boat People Taking All Our Jobs (Including The Children)
- A Pub-Style Parma You Can Have At Home

"The Dad" from Gay Dad (King Boy Pato), Saturday, 17 July 2010 09:37 (nine years ago) link

Fucking boat people. Fuck the fucking boat people. Cunts. Fucking come here and drink all our fucking water and live in our fucking houses and take all our fucking jobs and terrorist our fucking things. Cunts. We should blow up their homelands. Oh wait, we already did that. Fucking terrorists. Fuck them abodigines too, cunts. How dare they get here before us? We rightfully came here on boats and exterminated most of them, and now the ones what's left think they own the place. Poverty-line cunts.

Imagine if they got Steve Price & Andrew Bolt to cook a pub-style parma on Masterchef. That would get FIVE MILLION NASH at least, not even counting Reg or Tas.

"The Dad" from Gay Dad (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 21 July 2010 09:06 (nine years ago) link

obv it would be made of terrorist flesh and the coating would be the dandruff of deceased indigenous people.

btw be sure to watch Dumbo Abbott on the Hey Heys tonight. 1950s man meets 1950s television.

No thanks, I'd rather watch The Human Centipede.

"The Dad" from Gay Dad (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 21 July 2010 10:40 (nine years ago) link

This show is a giant Human Centipede. My fucking god. Every two minutes Daryl's gorging himself on Hey Hey clips from the '80s. I presume that at some point he'll develop a sewage-based mouth infection and shit-eat himself to death.

and you think, well, they're not THAT concerned because they keep voting in the same coal shills and even then the ALP are a bunch of pissweak cunts when it comes to taking a stand on the environment

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Thursday, 12 September 2019 00:42 (five months ago) link

They fear its effect on coastal property values while declining to take any action that would impede them from driving around in large plastic living rooms and renovating their houses with acres of giant cream tiles and cement render.

Oh, well, a whole bunch of those National-voting fuckwits are about to run out of water. I guess it's possible they MIGHT realise voting against protecting the land you rely on because the bigot arguing to destroy it is wearing an akubra is not a long-term plan for success.

There might be a fatal flaw in this hang the environmental impact studies and let’s build more dams strategy - if it doesn’t fucking rain.

Also stop growing cotton.

We need Fran Kelly back on RN Breakfast. McCormac should not have been allowed to get away with his 'Fuck the Frogs, dig the dams and the rain will magically appear schtick'.

I'm pretty sure farmers more than anyone are well aware of climate change and its looming problems, theyre not stupid. But yes, why the fuck we grow cotton or rice in this country I dont know.

tried to gently explain to a lower-ranking colleague at work today that no, there has been no law passed in Australia to allow abortion to occur at time of birth (despite her protests that it is on Facebook and 'it's on Channel 9' - linked to some weirdo site on there with a screenshot of Nine News)

I’m not looking forward to my trip to Sydney next week.

I’m also very ashamed. I had to present to the board of the company I am working for right now and was chatting with the chairman (notorious coal plant owning, climate denying fuckstick), in the preamble, while the conference call was getting, I passed up the opportunity to educate him (and possibly loose my job). I bottled it. Not next time.
