Re: The Truth Behind the D-Generation Schism

From various reports around the time, it seems like it was simply that Steve Vizard came along with a high profile show on Channel 7 and cherry-picked the performers he wanted for Fast Forward. I think it was mentioned more than once that Vizard largely took performer-only D-Gen members and left beh...

Re: What was the last DVD you bought?

My local DVD rental store is (finally) closing down, so I picked up a blu ray copy of Mississippi Grind, featuring Deadpool and the guy in charge of building the Death Star in Star Wars: Rogue One

Re: Happy Days

I think Tony was actually doing an impression of Toshiro Mifune, star of Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Hell in the Pacific, the miniseries Shogun and Steven Spielberg's 1941. I could be wrong, but he is a bit of a film nerd...

Re: What was the last CD you bought?

I've been trying to (finally) get around to buying all the TISM cds I couldn't afford in the 90s. Turns out I still can't afford them now.

Mick Molloy's Friday Front Bar now on Seven

I've been told by an AFL-loving friend that Friday Front Bar (a lightweight footy chat show fronted by Mick and also featuring Sam Pang) is a): funny and b): now being shown on Seven in the AFL states after Friday's game.

Re: Greg Fleet DVD - Bootlegs & Jumperpants

It's not a bad book and there's a lot of interesting stuff in there, but there's also a fair bit of rambling that feels like it's just there to make up the word count. Plus an awful lot of information on exactly where he is when he's writing particular chapters, which I could have lived without. Als...
