No through narrative this time. Just some paragraphs in no particular order – nothing much new there, I hear you cry.
*I have just seen the remarkable phrase “lifestyle apartments” on a billboard on Flemington Road. Whose lifestyle ?, I wondered. “Over there is the ensuite, the fully equipped dungeon is here … the roman blinds are double lined. Then there’s the building’s internal cable system which has James Dean, Fred Astaire and Johnny Depp movies on a continuous loop.”
*Then there’s humour. If you like it dry and sans jokes (per se) and don’t mind some occasionally obscure references this is for you!
*Grand Final tip – Geelong by 15 points.
*And finally. There’s “The Full ‘Grand Final’ Catastrophe” on Saturday night from 9 on Joy 94.9. Every club will be celebrated musically – albeit somewhat tangentially in some cases. There’ll be half time entertainment and the threat of constant meat pies. Fear not, there’ll be no in-depth analysis of the game or live crosses to the sheds. Truth to tell – which is not the same as saying “to be totally frank” – it’ll be the usual weird mix with a thin veneer holding it together. So tune in or log on at a non special time for two hours of this, that and the other.
