The Lows of Commercial Radio, and why I hate Kyle Sandilands…

July 30th, 2009 No comments

Oh, Kyle. How I’ve never liked you.

Your “holier-than-thou” attitude is probably what gets me the worse. I luckily live in a town that doesn’t get his radio show. My first “experience” to the idiots that are Kyle and Jackie was the Frenzal Rhomb debacle. Jackie got ridiculed on stage by the boys which made her sook and cry on radio the next. Big deal, that’s happened before and will happen again to countless celebrities. It was when Kyle started to say “you’re finished on radio. we’ll never play you again on Austereo!” (where Jay hillariously points out – they never played Frenzal on commerical radio!). But anyways. Jay and Lindsay got a Triple J job, and Kyle continued to make a cock of himself.

Oh yeah, the thuggery. That’s at least amusing. Kyle gets off threatening to bash anyone who even remotely disses the dickhead, at least I can get some giggles out of that. Like he’s even in shape at all to even try something like that. 😛

Today he takes the assholery (is that a word?) to a new level –

Taken from The ABC News site –

The NSW Department of Community Services is investigating a commercial radio stunt this morning, which ended in a 14-year-old girl admitting she had been raped.

The incident occurred on 2DayFM’s Kyle and Jackie O show, when a mother rang in to get her daughter to take part in a lie detector test about her experiences with sex and drugs.

After initially sounding uncomfortable with the questioning, the girl started crying and said she had been raped when she was 12.

Then Kyle Sandilands replied: “Right … is that the only experience you’ve had?”

Excuse my language here, but WHO IN THE FUCK says something as stupid as that? Kyle – don’t put rape in the same “experience” as normal sex. It is a violent act, a crime. They are not the same at all.

The mother is just as bad to blame, but as soon as the poor girl started to talk about it, the feed should of been cut, gone to a song and that should of been the end of it. In fact, getting a 14 year old on the radio to talk about her sex life in the first place? Didn’t that ring any alarm bells before the fact in the first place? And this wasn’t an impromptu thing – they got this girl into the studio and hooked her up to a lie detector machine!

Jackie is a ditzy bitch, but at least she had the common sense to cut the interview at that point. I have this terrible feeling that if she were not there, it would of gone on longer than that.

People go on about the Chaser and the occasional bad move they make with some of their stunts. Yes, the “Make a realistic wish” skit was in poor taste, but it pales in comparison to this poor girls trauma. The sad thing is too, it’s Commercial Radio. What can you do? “Our Taxes” as the easily offended wankers put it, aren’t involved here. Hopefully the sponsors of the show realise that the bad publicity outweighs the gossip and attention these two will be getting for the next few weeks.

Trusting them though, it will be business as usual soon enough. I mean look at Russell Brand….

The last few weeks

July 24th, 2009 No comments

I have had guests staying here that weren’t my parents

I also had my parents (well, the whole family)

I had weekends out and fun to be had. In fact, I have a few videos as recorded by my wonderful iphone.

The Hottest 100 Party

Hella fun. i only got two songs from my list, but I knew that Teen Spirit would win it. It always does. Started drinking about 2ish, didnt stop till the lights out (oh, i like that pun..). Another fun little twitter meetup and apart from the dodgy speaker at the Sandbar, enjoyed myself. This is at the moment the #1 song is announced. You can kinda hear it over the drunks 😛 I went to bed at about 7 or 8 pm that night. Yes I was smashed 😛

Summer of ’69

Most weeks my best friend and I here usually get to O’Malleys for Kareoke. Kell is an amazing singer and usually wins the cash competition there they have. If I could complain about one thing with the video on iphone is the lack of zoom features. Still, the sound works pretty good on it, as you can hear on this. And no I don’t sing. I have to work the next day and it would take a lot of booze to get me up there and singing….

So yeah, just a few video hilights of what i’ve been up to here. A more personal, locked entry later on when I can see better and am less tired/drained. Goodnight peeps..
