FortuneGrey profile of Bec Paton

By johnboy - 13 July 2005 9

Well worth a look is this profile of DJ Bec Paton by local blog FortuneGrey.

For such a small city, Canberra has a lot of people doing interesting stuff (and they’re good at what they do).

BP: It’s got a high education level, so people are a little more switched on. But also the place is incredibly sterile, especially in its design and I think to humanise everything, it needs, like people make that themselves, people need to make their own culture and because it’s relatively isolated, I mean Sydney’s fairly close, but you have to make an effort to go there, you’re always working in a vacuum, so stuff that comes out of here is innovative and is fresh, because it’s created fairly much from scratch.

What’s Your opinion?

“I could shag angelina jolie, cure cancer, bring about world peace, and release a worldwide number 1 single.”

Like K said, news value has nothing to do with getting on the front page of CityNews.

I could shag angelina jolie, cure cancer, bring about world peace, and release a worldwide number 1 single.

I still wouldn’t make CityNews without ponying over the cold hard cash.

Bec Paton would make my personal A-List of Canberrans any day.

yup – like scientology.


City News and L. Ron’s Dianetics office in the interchange are somehow affilliated…

and somehow Bec Paton has become involved.

So by that reasoning bloodnut, you can only be a Canberra A list if you pay several thousand?

How is Canberra more ‘sterile’ than other cities? WTF is implied by Sterile? I know I used to use terms like that when I was younger, cooler and still had ideals, but the more I think about it, the less sure I am that I ever knew what I meant.

I think that Bec may just be parotting something she heard the bigger kids saying a few years ago.

Hehehehe… That means I’m about on the X, Y, or Z list!

bloodnut 10:11 am 13 Jul 05

you’re not Canberra’s A list till you make the cover of City News

Is Bec Paton a celebrity? Does this put her on the Canberra A list, or is she still on the B list?

Anyway, I like the bolded sentence as above.
