Well that went quite well. Much thanks to The Front for letting us disrupt their morning on Wednesday.

Video to come shortly. In the meantime why not knock yourselves out telling us what you think?

While we wait for that upload to complete here’s a trip down memory lane to our 2004 appearance on the show.

UPDATED: After a long night of upload frustration comes the happy dawn. All of you who didn’t care enough to watch it live (you know who you are) can now sit through it via a tiny box blurred with compression artefacts. Enjoy.

ANOTHER UPDATE: The transcript’s now online. For those who are wondering the music used is: Ash Grunwald’s “Opinion” – track 12 on the CD “Give Signs”.

Also the ABC video is available.

What's Your Opinion?

Finally managed to watch this piece just now. Seemed quite good and all came across pretty well.

DMD, is the website suggestion aimed at me or JB? I’m assuming it isn’t aimed at Jazz given he’s a skinny bastard…

You, J/B, me, 99% of the RA regulars. Sitting behind computers all day just ain’t as healthy as it used to be.

Hm? Brand Stanhope. Me thinks I should go an buy a trademark on the name “Stanhope” so that Labor may direct a substantial portion of their election budget to me because of trademark infringement… either that of stop using Stanhope’s name… actually no, that may help them and I wouldn’t want that!

Take a bow, all concerned. Simbo, the camera was loving you (or vice versa — I’ll check with the cutting room floor).

And Jazz/Johnboy, following on from conversation(s) at ABN last week about growing dissatisfaction with traditional advertising (i.e. print and the farnarkling Jaundice-Coloured Pages), I’ve been talking to people from all walks of life (chippies, hospitality people, tandoor oven makers, musos) about web advertising and slipping the RiotACT into the conversation.

So I’ll change the habit of a lifetime and not try to play middle-man and just punt them all in your direction. (And no, I’m not trawling for a commission!! Just sharing the love around!)

…and evidently that DIY ACT council pickup day recently was a great success for the venue where it was held, as they appear to have found themselves a lovely green couch.

That was a really well edited segment – a great collaboration between RA and Stateline. Well done 🙂 Makes me feel a little glow of pride knowing that I’ve helped (if only slightly) in making RA what it is today. Congratulations guys, hopefully we get some fresh (semi-literate/intelligent) faces out of this.

Danman – Yes it was Ash, such a distinct sound I picked it right away, not familar with the song though – I’m guessing it’s off his latest album.

You guys never answered the big questions, though. Who DOES have the best coffee in town?

They didnt ask the question SamT

maybe that is worth a thread?

>>At least Catherine Garret could probably write an intelligent newspaper column…

‘Probably’ being the operative word.
