    2009 Logies

    I've waited a year to post this, with thanks to Slammin Sam K:



    This, ladies and gentlemen, is a fork.

    Nothing special about it. Four prongs, gilded in silver, a slightly salacious curve between the tines and the handles. If you stick it in food, you can pick it up, if you drop it on a table it resonates in E minor. If you stab Rove McManus in the head with it, he still isn't interesting.

    This may be the best fork in Australia, but you'd never know it. Instead, it sits in the back of the cutlery draw, waiting for the next dinner party. It'll never win a Logie. It'll never get the chance to pick up a gong; thank it's parents and God; pick a fight with Don Lane or cop a blow job in the bathroom from a cast member of Home and Away.

    Yet as I type this rant the entire Australian TV industry is currently at Crown Casino, frocked up and hoping to have their life's work validated by the readers of TV week, who have a combined age and IQ of 16. Then again, what do you expect from an industry which considers Richard Wilkins a talent?

    It's simply the worst celebrity gathering in the world's history. Of course, I'm using celebrity in its orignal Latin context - "celeb" meaning well known and "ritus", meaning prat. It's time the ABA started revoking all licences until they start putting something decent on.

    I'd almost started forgetting my extreme hate for Gretel Killeen. What is she doing on my TV?!

    Christ she's just appalling, isn't she?

    Loving Hawko's fallout, sorry outfit though.

    I love logie

    I love lamp.


    Who's the international guest-in-the-headlights this year?

    I remember ****ing talentless hacks like Richard Wilde Wilkins and Eddie Maguire being mown down by Joan Rivers a few years back. 'Twas awesome.

    And the Neighbours 20 Years of TV musical spectacular, what a display of entertainment that was. For those from overseas, or those Australians who enjoy having their innards turned to mush, I dare you to watch all of it:

    The Chaser's bonehead segment was the only good thing to ever come out of this.

    Haha watched that one actually, hilarious stuff. I still maintain (along with a load of my friends) that The Chasers is the funniest stuff on TV.

    Just noticed The Hollowmen won best comedy, gives the event some credibility.

    They still have the Logies? Remember back in the day half of the Gladitors were nominated for "Best New Talent". Enough said.

    Caught two minutes of Gretel's work last night - I hope questions will be asked in parliament as to who let that happen. Easily some of the worst tv I've ever seen, and that's a tough competition.

    The Logies have been somewhat redundant for years now. They definitely don't give off the image of being fiercely contested when persons like Rove and Lisa McCune win several gold ones in a row.

    From Wiki;

    Home and Away is the most successful program in Logies history

    Nuff said.
