The pain! The pain!

Well Peter Andre and his wife Jordan’s rendition of “A Whole New World” from an article in The Daily Telegraph did the inbox forwarding thing at work today.  Although I’m a little curious about why in DT they say “[it] has been doing the industry email rounds in recent days” as I found a video of it on You Tube posted 16th August 2006. Whatever. I shudder at the idea of this as a Christmas Album and if this is the best song….what else could they have in store for us?

I’m not going to post the video, because you don’t really want to see it.

Fair go sport…?

It looks like Foxtel and ASTRA are going up against the free to air channels over the right to air sport. ASTRA has set up its own web site “Fair Go Sport” and an ad with its position on high rotation (you can see it on the site, can’t find it on You Tube). Channel 9 (and the other free to air networks?) have hit back with their own ad and website, “Save My Sport“.  I haven’t seen this one very often but that’s probably because I have cable and rarely watch the free to air channels.

I presume one of the factors influencing the debate is the demiseof the Fox Footy Channel after a new rights agreement was struck between the AFL and the free to airs.

ABC news had an article over some recent controversy that has emerged from this story.
