Lots of worst relevant media this weekend, despite the new editor of The west not being announced. I think they want to make sure that staff morale has really hit rock bottom first.
The Inglewood internet cafe with the crazy Jesus motif was featured heavily in The West Saturday when the proprietor (Henk) found copious Firepower records in a second hand computer. Supposed editor material Gary Asshead was hitting it hard.
In the Sunday Times (I saw a free copy), The Don’t arf Penn, one of TWOP’s first ever posts was featured. The hideous Penninsular Tavern is going to be redeveloped into a glitzy (ie hideous) glass pub and shops complex. The Times is claiming that Maylands will become the new Subiaco. Really. After what they did to Subiaco, do we really want that?
Now I know no-one reads the West’s letters page these days. Why would you when you can get a superior brand of crackpot here at TWOP? But last week Teh ‘Rage Cohen had a letter in saying that Gerard Henderson had got it wrong, and journos weren’t communists. He got a reply exposing him and his cadres on Saturday. Why does The West continue to buy in trash from total knob-heads like Gerard Henderson? At least paul Murray is home grown garbage.
There was some Murray news on the weekend when restaurant reviewer Broadfield encountered Teh Paul at a Japanese restaurant. Apparently Murray was also there in the role of food critic for some gourmet rag. Having read Murray, I have always got the impression that his taste buds would be in his arse if anywhere. In true paul Murray tradition, can we expect some extensive cutting and pasting from Broadfield’s piece? I also found it highly amusing that Murray couldn’t type the word “piss” last week, while Alston had no trouble penning “fart”. P-ss weak Paul.
Also, The Worst of Perth brother can just be seen in the ad for Shane Warne in West mag, despite being darkened in photoshop.
