How can we sleep while our beds are burning?

Age of Terror

I keep missing Age of Terror – I assume at 9 on a Tuesday there just really isn’t anything worth watching, so I only caught the last 15 minutes and I have to confess every time I’ve gone to watch it is because I’m interested to see the programme on 9/11 and Al-Qaeda – but that’s next week. Tonight’s episode was about the plane hijacked for 56 hours in Paris in 1994. I really don’t remember this happening at the time, and fair enough, 16 and living in New Zealand I was probably listening to Pavement on my walkman. My only gripe is that the comments from the survivor who said she can’t watch the 9/11 footage without picturing herself back in their ordeal were chilling enough without the footage of the second plane hitting the Twin Towers repeated at least four times.

Jools.. Later Live

Apparently I should like Operator Please, because they’re from Australia. Sorry, I love the Gold Coast, their hometown, where the weather’s ‘Beautiful one day and perfect the next’ as much as the next person, but their Song about Ping Pong was all concept and hand clapping. I just find all the young bands Jools promotes so pretentious! Anyway, if you’re after Australian music you should listen to You Am I or The Pictures, god even Midnight Oil would have been better. Just like anyone in the know would holiday in Noosa not the Gold Coast.
