So the next major inter-sport event is just a few short months away in the winter wonderland of Sapporo. I'll be heading north for my first ever Asian Winter Games experience and with tickets for most sports going on sale this morning (and they are pretty cheap) it's going to be a fun week. The opening ceremony is on Feb 19 at the Sapporo Dome and the event pretty much mirrors the Winter Olympics sports wise. I'll be checking out some Short Track, Figure Skating, Ice Hockey, Ski Jumping and the Opening Ceremony. It'll be a pretty good indicator on how strong the Japanese/Chinese/South Korean teams will be at PC18 - I'm especially expecting the Short Track to be fiercely contested. I'm also hoping for a ridiculous Ice Hockey match like Turkmenistan VS Qatar... Anyone else heading North for these Games? Maybe tacking on some skiing in Niseko?
So sadly I am not heading to Rio as the winter Games are more my bag and there is only so much handball you can watch in person before people assume you are Norwegian or some sh*t. Thus I am staying in depressingly non-wintery Brisbane (ha ha - prospective snort snort bidder for lol lol lol 2028) and will thrill you all with my tales of couch-ery and inflatable palm trees. Today's mission - new TV! I shall be heading down to the local retailer ((JB Hi Fi for those playing along at home) and am eyeing of an Olympic sponsor approved Samsung KU6000 60" 4K blah blah letters and numbers TV that should really make the next 2.5 weeks of sport/poverty porn pop! Such vibrant street crime! Such indepth enhanced boobage! Favela! Fa-ve-la! Sadly it costs about the same as a flight to Rio and a water polo semi final ticket - but ya know - it'll make The Amazing Race Canada look even better as well. Win win. I may also mid Games goes to a local Churrasco place and/or eat bananas/pineapples while thinking of South America. So stay tuned fellow GBidders! it's a new world!
I hate Big Brother Australia with a passion. A PASSION!!!! However a few years back I noticed a Big Brother Canada torrent and thought "hey this may be fun - I love when Canadians do things like they are real people". Lo and behold I loved that wacky Canuck fest (#teamika4life). So anyhow season 4 of BBCan finally finished a few weeks back and those good folk over at survivorsucks suggested BBUK16 was shaping up to be worth a look. Thus I have binged the last few weeks worth (well 'Difficult People' season 2 was still a month away at that point) and have some thoughts on the housemates. I'm pretty much up to date and yeah - spoilers blah blah blah. TOP ROW - Emma (and her twin), Sam, Alex, Laura, Jackson, Jayne, Chelsea, Andy, Evelyn BOTTOM - Ryan, Natalie, Marco, Lateysha, Jason, FECKING HUGHIE, Georgina, Charlie, Andrew ALEX - token bit of eye candy. Bland as can be though the producers love to film up his shorts for some reason. Either way I can't really judge him too harshly as I continually forget he is there. Apparently he is a model? With that hair rapidly going he better strike while the going is good. ANDREW (The Others) - just so full of sh*t. Glad they booted him for being a tool. ANDY - so self righteous. So full of himself. He'll argue in his condescending little way even when he is wrong that he is in fact right. Obviously intelligent - and happy to let everyone know it. He'll probably win. CHARLIE (The Others) - JASON IS NOT INTERESTED IN YOU YOU STUPID BITCH! Ahem. Sorry. Her constant whining just annoyed the **** out of me. Such a victim. He said the whole way through nothing was happening in the house and yet... yet... it just went on and on... BUH BYE! CHELSEA - he kind of makes me think he'd be the kind of guy Guy Ritchie would cast in a sequel to 'Snatch' so he can claim diversity. A real stereotype of "new money". "IT WAS JUST A PANCAKE!!!!!" Bye bye douchebag! EMMA - My early fave. Between her and her twin (um... name?) their delightful ditziness was quite entertaining. For a show or two. The constant escape attempts made great TV until they got her booted. EVELYN - Aussie slappers represent! So shallow. Her constant moaning about Alex is getting really old. JUST F*CK HIM THEN CRY ABOUT IT FOR A WEEK! GEORGINA - what a sour cow. So judgy. So pouty. Such a tool. Like she would EVAH date Jackson out there in the real world. Bye! Status loving she-beast. HUGHIE (The Others) - oh my GAWD!! Serious question - do Irish 'travellers' have to get at least a minimum amount of schooling? Hughie is potentially the dumbest person on TV ever. EVER! From his stupid accent to his droopy eyes and crap fake tan - FUCKIN' HELL HE SHITS ME!!!!! And then he goes and ejaculates on Ryan's face under the doona and all is forgiven. QUALITY TV!!!!! JACKSON - with Georgina he was pussy whipped. Without her he acts like he is the moral compass of the house. Ridiculous. I look forward to reading about his troubles with the law in a few years time. I'm guessing.... meth addiction. JASON - he always looks like someone has just kicked his puppy. So sullen. Has he even laughed this season? He just seems to take up space and now Charlie is gone there is no reason for him to be there. BE GONE!!! JAYNE (The Others) - I don't know. She tries too hard but is so brutally honest it is kind of adorable. Then again she made out with Chelsea... WASH OUT YOUR MOUTH! MOLLY - YOU IN DANGER GIRL! LATEYSHA - oh Lateysha. How I wish they gave you and GOBSHITE HUGHIE subtitles as I barely understand a word. Nor do I care. I honestly believe that Ryan and her are related - they sound so alike. I love how Andy riles her up and how her breasts seem ready to escape at a seconds notice. Joy. LAURA - your entire claim to fame is f*cking Marco Pierre White Jnr on international television. NEXT! MARCO - tool. Douchey Mc Doucherson. This guy has all the confidence in the world but is just trash. A worthy first boot. Thank gawd his fiancee came to her senses and left the boofhead. Ah buh bye. **** tatts too. NATALIE (The Others) - poor deluded Natalie. She thought people gave a f*ck about her. Nope. So over-opinionated and quick to anger. Great TV though. RYAN (The Others) - his claim to fame is being spoofed on by F*CKING HUGHIE!!!! And being a weaslly little git. SAM - the hipster. Who is utterly bland and forgettable. (Are there usually so many gay guys in BBUK each year? Counting Hughie (claims to be bi) there are what... 4?). His accent is grating but he seems very beige and I tend to get surprised hen he gets air time as I forgot he was there. I HATE THEM ALL SO MUCH! Anyhow - great season thus far. Is it too much to hope Nikki Graham makes an intruder entry? By the way - (The Others) is the 6 housemates that were "hidden' within earshot of the original house guests and were folded in when the producers ran out of shady sh*t for them to do.
