Where are you?
If you listen to the Matt and Jo Show 101.9 Fox FM Melbourne then you may be wondering where I am. I am only doing my segment after the 7:30am and 8:30am news, instead of sitting in on the whole show. While my deranged cackle will no longer be part of the show from 6-9am every day, I will be able to stay up later at night, get out to far more events, and do way more gigs. I will still be appearing on 9am with David and Kim on Network Ten, and joinging The Bunch for breakfast every Friday morning on Mix 94.5 in Perth. Also, I will be free to do much more writing, something I really want to concentrate on this year. As you can see by the posts on this page, Nicole Brady and Bridget McManus, the delightful editorial team at the Green Guide, have been giving me heaps of work doing what is essentially my dream job: watching tv for money.
Speaking (or writing, to be precise) of writing, I will be updating my fablog far more frequently. I haven't settled on a deadline day for the fablog, because essentially I have just started a new job, with new duties and these things take some working out, but never fear, there will be something in this space at least once a week. Even if it's just a sentence that says "I hate deadlines!"
Alias (Season 2 DVD)
I've been watching Alias on DVD from the beginnng (summer holidays, perfect for a dvd box set) and the second season has been brilliant fun. Guest stars galore (Christian Slater, Rutger Hauer, Ethan Hawke, the plastic surgery scar purporting to be Faye Dunaway and the radiant Lena Olin) and the stunning Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan. My only issue with Alias is one involving my suspension of disbelief. I am happy to believe that Jennifer Garner is handy in a fight, I'm fine with her mother being a KGB spy while her dad is in the CIA. I can cope with all the Rambaldi nonsense (500 year old prophet who knew about DNA and microchips) but I cannot believe that Los Angeles is such a hotbed of terrorist activity. The same goes for Kiefer Sutherland in 24. LA has only one industry - the film industry. Does Al Qaeda really want to blow up Gossip Girl?
