Brilliant, brilliant!

Wow. Don't we all feel old. The countdown to series two.. the cueing up of the video recorder...

I bought a bottle of whiskey just now and got IDed, so I feel great.

And Lawrie Zion, who I rememeber from Triple J's Creatures of the Spotlight, did indeed write the introductory essay in the Frontline script book.

And in case anyone's mixing him up with Sounds of Aus presenter John Clarke, Lawrie Zion wrote Sounds of Aus.

I used to watch it when I was 5, I remember Charlie the Wonderdog being the only thing of interest at that young age.

I'm feeling old mainly because I rewatched The Goodbye Girl (1977) today and discovered that Marsha Mason's character (Rob Sitch's right - so much effort goes into devising character names, but nobody ever remembers them. Ok, I shall attempt it without Googling it..) Paula Mc.. Mc... something :confused:, was actually 33. My age now. So in the two decades since I watched this film, I've gone from identifying with the 10 yr old girl who watches loads of movies, to the mother who is 33. And is groaning and puffing and carping on about how old she is. Ugh.

Should never have rewatched it. Magic gone. Dreyfuss gave me the heebeegeebees this time, and I'm now somewhat suspicious that his character might have been a kiddy interferer *shivers*

I'm also fairly sure that he wrote the opening article in Behind The Frontline.

Lawrie also came up with the concept of the Hottest 100 for Triple J...

He was also a pretty well liked presenter on Triple J back in them days, "the early nineties". When we all wore Tencel jeans.

The Sound of Aus guy. Brilliant show that, well worth checking out on DVD. Santo's in it.
He was also the movie guy on The Panel for a while. He's currently (no doubt amongst other things) teaching journalism at... some Melbourne Uni. LaTrobe?

That's him! I forgot his name (shame on me). We'd always bump into each other when I used to report for the ARIA Awards for a few years. Haven't seen him since I stopped going around 2006 :(
