Canberra Goss – The suspense is killing me

By johnboy 26 November 2008 184

It looks like our friends who have been thinking about asking “them” for a better website for Canberra might finally be getting what they want.

The Canberra Goss website proclaims that it is going to do something more useful than run a hideous flash animation sometime on Monday.

Intriguingly it promises to bring you “ALL SORTS OF PLEASURE IN THE ONE WEBSITE” including:

  • Overnight sensation!
  • Hottest parties!
  • Only the Best!

As you can imagine I am barely able to contain my excitement at the thought of all this pleasure.

Canberra Goss is a person on Facebook, with rather a lot of friends, and there’s a popular FB group which is all very impressive for a placeholder. Apparently there’s some sort of link with Academy.

Best of luck to them.

UPDATED: Well they’re live now with a heady mix of advertorial, competitions (they seem to have a lot of Xbox 360s to give away which makes me deeply jealous on several levels), and stale old content. The insistence on using flash as a key design element of the site is particularly painful. That said, and using flash as a content element, I’d like to dedicate this song to them:

The real one is _VASTLY_ more entertaining, Granny…

I think that that might be the same one she was referring to. I slipped it into a post on teh Canberra Gross site…

why do they have an archives button? seems strange if they are deleting comments.

not going to be my site of choice. mrs peterh couldn’t believe how bad it is either, she will stick to yahoo or msn messenger.

Peter you’re pretty much the last person they’re trying to run the site for, no great loss to them there.

Granny 1:25 pm 27 Nov 08

Well, at least I got to see the official webpage of The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea ….

censoring the comments, but not the “F” word, or the “C” word?

I read that last night and was convinced it was a rioter causing trouble. I’m glad someone else thought that comment on dolphins was hilarious.

The Rioters appear to be the only ones on that site that can spell and use correct grammar.

I just reposted my vote for Granny. I refuse to to be silenced…

Granny 12:58 pm 27 Nov 08

I don’t think I’ve ever had a nicer compliment than that. Usually people comment on how much worse I look than a wigged dolphin.

LOL

Skidbladnir 12:56 pm 27 Nov 08

Now I can’t even access the site, and see 100% packet loss on pings.

But the entire Delta Goodrem – dolphin – Vote for Granny series was:

Post 1 by ItsaMeMario:
I had the misfortune of being at my friend Simon’s house one night while his girlfriend was watching Australian Idol. Delta Goodrem was a guest and played her new single, cant remember what it was called but it sounded like something from the movie Titanic so i guess she was ‘on brand’.
When Delta first appeared a few years back, I seriously wanted to sleep with her. Seeing the mess she was on tv, I cant believe what dreadful taste I actually have.
When I was about twelve, my sister had an eighties newsagent book series on how to apply makeup. I swear that the preteen girl on the cover, made up to look like what I assumed at the time to be a zombie, was identical to Delta Goodrem’s ‘look’ last night.
The covergirl had crimped long blonde hair, enough bronze coloured foundation smothered on to look like greased plasticine and black eyeshadow with a hint of cobalt blue. The dress Delta was wearing I have no name for, kind of like a black shiny full length poncho or one of those rug like covers you see Egyptian people wearing in the indiana jones movies.

Post 2 by ItsaMeMArio
Dolphins can hold their breath for up to eight weeks but need to surface occassionally to look around as they cannot open their eyes under water.
Dolphins are not fish. They are mammals. They give birth to live offspring. Usually each dolphin gives birth to eighty or ninety calves at a time but few survive as the mothers eat their young.

Fact: If you put a wig on a dolphin, it looks better than Delta Goodrem.
But not better than Granny.
+1 Granny.

After this, people heaped shit on ItsaMeMario for being overly long-winded, and comparisons of him to John Howard.
Why Canberra Goss’ readership believes John Howard would ramble at length about Delta Goodrem or dolphins, I have no idea.

Nothing wrong with trolling places infested with idiots, in fact it’s a duty.

BerraBoy68 12:49 pm 27 Nov 08

It’s cause you is hot, innit!

Granny 12:43 pm 27 Nov 08

Frankly, I can’t understand why they would have taken such a disliking to me, p1!

*chuckle*

poptop 12:42 pm 27 Nov 08

Being a troll is bad. And if you go trolling you’re bad. ‘Cause trolls are bad. Don’t be a troll.

Mmkay?
