* All Australian males over the age of 40 have a crush on Julia Zemero, don't they? (Homer excepted, if I remember correctly.) Hence I found myself watching the singing competition show All Together Now, which features a panel of "music industry figures" judging the contestants. (The only big name on which is Ronan Keating, who I admit is a likeable TV presence.)
But as for the rest of the judges - who knew the Australian music business is (if you were to judge it by this show) completely dominated by gay/camp personalities? It reminded me of the unknown D grade celebrities Britain manages to scrape up from somewhere for shows like "I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here". In fact, I see this show is a format import from Britain, so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised.
I don't know: the set is pretty, and the judges are 3/4 ridiculous, and Julia is still funny sometimes. I might watch it again.
* My daughter likes a lot of Justin Bieber songs, but thinks he's nuts. Yes, I like to point out: he is a living example of having excessive money, especially while young, causing more problems than it solves. (A point I like to make often to justify my own less than desired income.) She said the other day that maybe he's a "good boy" again, since he went back to his church. Seems not to be true.
* I liked this short interview with Hard Quiz host Tom Gleeson. He is funny, and I am happy to understand how they warn guests about his style.
