It's All About the Cox

Standard opener/disclaimer: Sorry I haven't posted in so long... Blah, blah, blah... She deserved it... Australia Says No....

Now, my brother and I (as well as thousands of other childish West Coast supporters like us) have been making jokes at Cox's name's expense for years now, and let me tell ya, it NEVER tires. Think "penetrating", "Big Cox" etc etc... Well, the PC crew has come (hehe, come!) down on Deal or No Deal host Andrew O'Keefe, for interviewing Geoff Cox (no, never heard of him either), and saying his new CD could be called:
"The Best Cox and More Cox than You Could Ever Believe"
I don't care what none of y'all say, that's gold!

Gaming: Speaking of puerile puns, Nintendo's new console will be named "Wii", pronounced "Wee". Must be an attempt to penetrate (hehe, again!) the German market. Perhaps the first game will be Super Mario World 5: Scat Island. I kill me...

Related, Xbox 360 ad that might've been banned. Great stuff.

Round Ball: I'm still commisserating AC Milan's UCL Semi-Final loss (set for a good final, though!), but to then hear that Zidane is retiring... Cheer up by viewing some highlights of his sublime skills (and then think about how the hell Australia will manage against players like him in June).

With Guus going to Russia after the World Cup, the FFA has started looking for a replacement. Word is, it might be Harry Kewell's old mate, Gerard Houllier. Hope so.

TV: Thank Christ that The Fattest Idiot has finally finished. Now onto BB, which is getting more and more cynical each year, but hey, it's better than Temptation or Homos and Gays!

In fact, last night was postively engaging. With Bernard Fanning coming out after dodging Camilla's questions all day, and then seeing the poor thing cry like a baby, it was terrific viewing. 50 bucks says they get drunk and give it a go anyway.

Speaking of The Fattest Idiot, how much does that Kristie look like the kid off The Shining?. REDRUM...REDRUM...REDRUM...

Check out Finland's entry to Eurovision this year. Now that's gonna be great to watch. The story is that this year, Finland allowed full public voting for their act (rather than a record company scam). My bet is the rules will change next year..

Misc: Two final things. Check out Phillip Morris (the tobacco company) launching "Maori Mix" cigarettes in Israel. Idiots. Like that's not gonna offend anyone...

And, set aside about an hour (seriously) to read an amazing series of posts by Kevin Smith (director of Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma etc, a.k.a. "Silent Bob") about his Jay and his real-life H addiction. I know I spend most of my time in these posts being sarcastic, but believe me, this is some of the best reading on the web.

Thanks, Adam
