Scotty and Nige v. Jorian? [With Poll]

By johnboy - 19 March 2013 42

For reasons best known to himself Canberra’s nomadic newsman Joran Gardner has blogged at length about his short little twitter war with Canberra’s third most popular thing, FM104’s Scotty and Nige.

I’ll leave it as an exercise for the readers as to who got the better of it.

Having said that, I wonder how they would be to have a beer with? You think they keep the radio personality or be a bit more normal?

If your handle is anything to go by I’d say you’d get on with both, they talk about gaming heaps. I met them at the Convoy for Cancer this year and they seemed to be entirely pleasant fellas. Jorian on the other hand seems like a grade a tool, a quick google search confirms that.

Where is the button I press to have a beer with the ever-intelligent, irreverent, entertaining, devil-may-care Jorian Gardner? If I wanna hear nerds talk about gaming, I’ll find an actual 14 year old, not an FM radio manchild.

Muntychops, if you ever had the good fortune to meet, eat and drink with Mr Gardner, you’d realise that sometimes there’s a difference between a googled public image and an actual person. Jorian, this time the whiskey’s on me.

My Dad always said you should take people as you find em, he also said if it walks like a duck, looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it’s probably a duck. With that in mind I find it hard to believe that Mr Gardner is anything but an overblown self important twat! Surely several employers can’t b.e wrong hence why they fired him, or is it a case of every bodies fault but his?

My Dad really loved ducks

Twitter war (enough said) between two fluffing lightweight poodles on commercial FM and a self opinionated irrelevant shock jock.

Does it get any better than this in Canberra?

I say no.

Let the battle continue!

From my listening experience, jorian try’s way too hard to be a shock jock, while Scotty and Nige try way to hard to be Internet meme masters and appeal to a younger crowd when they are far older.

If I have to pick I’d say Scotty and Nige.

Well from what I have heard them talk about games on air, they pretty much are only into fps shoot terrorists in the face don’t get me wrong, that has a place but Japanese games is what I’m all about.

And yeah they seem like nice guys, but just out on the Internet stuff way to hard.

Meh. Narky tweets from a couple of twats. Nothing to see here – move along.

Wow. People (still) listen to commercial FM?

“If you%u2019re gonna come at me publicly, and you are a public figure yourself, then have some respect for your audience and make it more intelligent than a playground-like-bully trying to argue with a debater will ya? And it%u2019s not the first time these comedic legends have tried to have a go at me. That%u2019s fine because I can take it. I have invited it I guess. I am almost positive Scotty & Nige have no real idea about who I am %u2013 they only refer to me in a %u201Cradio context%u201D and clearly live in a very small world that%u2019s defined by their industry %u2013 I say by their format. So, like moths to a flame%u2026.

…Following this exchange I was blocked from accessing @ScottyandNige %u2013 a twitter disappointment I will soon get over. It was probably their bosses who blocked any further exchanges I would say, more than likely horrified by their employees quips knowing that they looked rather silly and petty. I on the other hand don%u2019t report to anyone and can comment on whatever I like, whomever I like, whenever I like. I will continue to do so because unlike others I follow my own format, dance to my own beat if you will %u2013 one that I program myself.”

Any form of discussion that involves snarky hashtags is a loss for humanity.
