Adam and Wil

The world is coming apart at the seams... First, some of our bestest friend move to Canada, and now it's Adam and Wil's last breakfast show EVER. These are two guys who have been a part of my life for 5 years. They were who we tuned in to over the internet when we lived in the USA to get away from horrendous local media in North Carolina. They are the creators of numerous phrases, now common language amonsgt Australians from all walks of life. Eg 'Go off like a frog in a sock'. They are the two of the three people I spend at least the first half hour of my day with. They are the reason I often sit in my car in the carpark at work for 10 minues after arriving, just to hear them finish their ranting. They are the reason I have shared in the rage of many Australians telling it LIKE IT IS. I could go on and on. Suffice to say I am sad, it is the end of an era and I can't imagine life ever quite being the same again. Tomorrow will be like Sept 11 - except we have had a warning, and we are powerless to stop it happening.

Bye Bye Canadians

Owen and Corrina leave Australia physically and become virtual friends as of tomorrow...

A bit bummed about that.

Voting Reasons

I think the reason Johnny got back in is that most people vote for who they think will be best for THEM. In fact, it is completely expected that that is how you will vote - that usually means someone who you think will keep interest rates low or will look after you when you retire or who will give you a tax break.

I reckon we should vote for politicians (if we can find them) who we think will do the best thing for the underpriveleged, the struggling, the environment... the world. And that they won't work for only Australia's best interests, but in the interests of the WORLD.

Who is the intended audience here?

I think I have avoided blogging so far because I find it weird wondering who is reading this. At the moment, noone will be reading this because I haven't really told anyone I have a blogg. But as soon as I link it to my website, it could be read by friends, family work associates, mortal enemies.... ANYONE! Thinking about that makes me realise how much I filter what I say / opinions I express depending on the audience at the time. Is that bad?

I'm not talking about whether I could swear or not... that's not something I really do anyway. But things like expressing political/cultural opinions... I guess if I have opinions that someone I know may find troubling / insulting, then it may actually be a good idea to get them out there. I just hope that if I did write anything here that troubles someone, they would be willing to discuss it with me!
