No, I didn’t watch Paper Giants last night, though I am sure it was probably as good as everyone was saying. Why not? The story does not really interest me. Why should I bother seeing again the crapification of Oz women’s magazines into the arse-wipes they now are – even if like most I occasionally cast a look at them in the doctor’s surgery.
So instead I watched the first outing of The Observer Effect on SBS. It has promise.
Before that I watched the final part of Whitlam. Well worth it. The Khemlani Affair and the activities of Jim Cairns and Ms Morosi – in fact the whole of 1974-5 – look even weirder now. On the other hand that time was a watershed for Oz, and in so many ways for the better.
I see The Sydney Morning Herald is still following the Sydney High/Selective School story. That is interesting, that one. Good to see, I guess, that SBHS students still have voices!
Seriously sad news: the passing of a great Australian: Vale Mr Yunupingu 1956 – 2013.
