The ABC reports that the Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation aims to make Darwin “the Tamworth of Indigenous music”!! Why doesn’t this fill me with joy, I wonder? Tamworth may be a valid comparison from more than one standpoint. Country music is mostly shithouse, and so is most indigenous music: musicians with poor to mediocre instrumental skills, playing and singing boring, derivative songs out of tune. Of course, you’re not allowed to mention that in politically correct circles, but fortunately I don’t mix in them. Mind you, the Darwin Symphony Orchestra is just as bad. Maybe we should simply strive to develop Darwin as the Home of Bad Music, without racial fear or favour.
Meanwhile, Yobbo has some pertinent comments in the wake of news that Canterbury Bulldogs players will be fined by their club for engaging in consensual group sex:
I’d be interested to know exactly which sex acts are considered ok by the NRL. Is a threesome ok if your wife is keen?
What about anal sex? Do homos bring the game into disrepute?
If your girlfriend likes it rough should you check with the league before tying her up or slapping her arse?
These sort of things need to be spelled out in advance if players are to behave like proper role models. …
If you are upset by the fact that some sportspeople are committing adultery, engaging in group sex, or drinking more than the recommend daily dose of alcohol, by all means feel free to move a country where people share your concerns. Like Indonesia or Saudi Arabia.
Australia is a free fucking country.
I think I agree. Then again … “B”‘s next door neighbour is in the habit of lying on her front patio directly outside “B”‘s bedroom window, semi-naked on a banana lounge, chain-smoking and flagellating herself with a pink plastic fly swotter. It can be very disconcerting. I certainly think this sort of conduct should be banned by the NRL if it involves a beefy rugby league player. Freedom must have its limits.
PS – Someone named “Mat” in Yobbo’s comment box claims to have the inside story on the Bulldogs saga. I’m not going to link directly to it, because I don’t want to get sued.
