New Things Happening!!

September 30, 2010

For some months now people have been asking for a new podcast, and for many months we ignored you, until now! Coming very soon to an itunes near you, will be a brand new episode of Left Wing Love Child.

Not only chock a bock with hilarity and witty quips, but also now over an hour in length. So strap in, sit down, relax, lock the kids in the garage and listen to the finest in podcasting

Here’s what some people had to say about the newest season of Left Wing Love Child

“Whose Left Wing Love Child?” – The New York Times

“They are about as funny as AIDS” – The Sunday telegraph

“Good thing this is free, since I would never pay to hear this” – Hamish and Andy

I personally thought that remark in The Sunday Telegraph was in poor taste, but they will post anything in there it seems.

So be sure to check iTunes regularly over the next few days in great anticipation for the new episodes.


A Day Fit For a Champion

September 25, 2010

Today was one of the worst days I have experienced in recent memory. For you see, I have been stuck in some sort of infinite procrastination loop. My mid semester break is nearing its end, and hat have I got to show for it? Was I productive? Well I did watch an unhealthy amount of Mythbusters while simultaneously looking up serial killers on Wikipedia and trying to solve the case. So yes I was productive in that sense. However I also had tree assessments to finish and I am only now starting the finish the first.

To give you an idea of what I DID do today I will provide you with an outline

•    Woke up, made extravagant fruit salad breakfast which took almost an hour of preparation
•    Showered, brushed my teeth and FLOSSED (I never Foss. because really who has the time?)
•    Took my dog for a walk (it should be noted I HATE my dog, and so for me to voluntarily do this seemed like a big deal)
•    Cleaned my desk
•    Dusted my shelves
•    Sat out in the lovely sunshine (again I NEVER do this, since when do use words like lovely?)
•    Alphabetized my books, Vinyl, DVDs and CDs
•    Did some ironing
•    Solved a crime or two
•    Then started my first essay.

Even now I am writing a blog entry when in reality I should be finishing work. Two things have gotten me through his day though!!

Those being

  • Espresso

  • New Deerhunter album – Halcyon Digest

It perfectly matched my mood of sleepy, warm, anxious and heroic all at the same time.


Gaga, A Baby’s First Words? Or the Sound of a Pop Culture Phenomenon?

September 14, 2010

The MTV video music awards have rolled around for another year. It is hard to believe that it was actually an entire year ago that kanye created the most boring controversy ever by interrupting Taylor swift, you might even say he pulled a “swift” move on her-BAM-a year later and its still like a joke piñata.

That hilarity aside this years VMA’s may as well have been renamed “What stupid/crazy shit is Lady Gaga going to wear next?” although she won something ridiculous like eight awards, her outfits clearly took center stage over mediocre dance pop.

Among other things on this particular night, one “dress” she wore was not too out there by any means. So what did she do? She put a raw steak on her head. I know what you are thinking “delicious” well you are WRONG. It’s not delicious; I would even hardly call it fashion, more a meal. What are people in third world countries meant to think? While they are starving barely getting one meal a day in American they are taking once edible food and putting it on their head and deeming it culture
You see Gaga doesn’t realize that she is digging herself into a controversy hole. Once she has worn a steak on her head, what more can she really do to shock the population who are caught in uproar over uncooked meat? Perhaps some kind of aborted fetus dress? Or a paper Mache dress made entirely out of broken treaties to the Native American’s?

I am also quite certain that her designers are the laziest people ever. They are not sewing late into the night or into the wee hours of the morning, oh no. This is how they prepare for a lady Gaga dress.

(1)    Go to butcher
(2)    Ask for half a kilo of fillet mignon
(3)    Cook up one steak for yourself
(4)    Stick other on Lady Gaga’s head
(5)    Call it fashion
(6)     Get paid

Lady Gaga is an artist who is deemed “edgy” and always pushing boundaries. Although a closer inspection of her actual music and there seems very little to be offended by. Take her first major hit “just Dance” for example. It is simply an electro-pop song about having fun, throwing caution to the wind and dancing. Who is going “HOW DARE YOU!!, you can’t make me dance. You are destroying my beliefs and all my morals with you sacrilegious pop music” no one that’s who.

Or take her perhaps biggest hit “Bad Romance” I personally think this song and subject matter are WAY too out there in the ether to be relatable to the modern day you and I. I mean who in this modern day and age were all marriages are predetermined by our parents to coincide with beneficial business deals, so who knows the feelings of a Romance going wrong and turned sour?

Her old flat mates (who clearly wanted to cash in on her success) have apparently spoken out. Saying that she was not always weird, and hold back your rage. But they said she was not always “Warhol-esque” WHAT!? Do they know who are what Warhol is and or did? Andy Warhol was one of the pioneering Pop artists emerging in the 1950s influenced by the post WW2 American economy boom.

Inspired by commercialism he incorporated a theme of mass production and consumerism into many of artworks, such as the Campbell soup cans or nine Elvis’. Does this remind you of lady Gaga? No? I thought not. S this just proves that Lady Gaga is an idiot who is associated (once) with people who know nothing of art, except for a few choice “buzz” names and words that they drop into conversation without any actual knowledge of what it means.

Oh yeah and the Black Keys won an award too, so check them out since they are both talented and deserve to win an award. An odd combination for the VMA’s.


Letters To…Again?!…Again!!

September 8, 2010

Oh yes, that’s right we are going old school, in fact we are going pre-school. That’s how old this bit is. I’m just polishing up an old idea and trying to make it appear new and fresh, just like the X-factor, any Today Tonight “exclusive” story on which milk is better for you or the new Stephan Hawking book called “An even more brief history of time”, I’m pretty sure its only 2 pages long and go’s something like this

•    First there was small bugs in some water
•    Monkeys
•    Monkey/People transformers
•    Dinosaurs
•    Meteor that killed dinosaurs, but did not kill us
•    Fire
•    Ye olde English accents
•    Top hats
•    World War 2
•    Rick Astley
•    IPods
•    Coke Zero
And you can fill in the gaps of history.

Small history lesson aside, I will now present to you for your entertainment a brand new set of letters to…

Dear Kesha,

do you make awful music because you’re upset that your name is Kesha? I would be pretty mad too

Dear cracker crumb stuck under my keyboard.

Why don’t you go away? I would eat you if I could. Thanks to you I can’t type the letter Q..I wait there you go it finally broke up…never mind. Although you made it hard writing that report on Qualitative Quantity Questionnaires.

Dear Man on the train who was having an awfully sexual conversation on his phone.

I wanted so bady to be the person to yell out “get a room” but i have too much class for that, plus you are a good 200Kg heavier than me and would probably crush my weak vegetarian frame like an obese man crushing his couch clean in half as he sits on it.

Dear “Today Tonight”.

Tell me if I’m right, people are constantly trying to steal my identity at any given opportunity, migrants should not be allowed any job AT ALL, the quality of milk and meat from supermarkets is a constant source of concern and top priority news and getting your foot in the door is the best tactic for an interview fuck calling ahead.
