I saw a post that Jung made on the GG forums the other day that said that he was told that they were firing him and replacing him with a girl for "mass appeal". Apparently Jung then argued about them losing the hardcore fan base to which the management replied that they would be making it up in the new, broader fan base.

If I had the link I would post it but I don't... plus I'm sure they've taken it down by now. The ABC were trying to keep the real reasoning secret apparently.

Bump for great news.

Monster is selling for $2 each at Coles until the 11th of November (six days from now). Not sure if it's in every state or just Victoria (or even just Melbourne), but it's worth a look.

Stock up, bitches.

Fifty percent of the time I catch a Frankston train from Melbourne Central it will turn into a Pakenham or Cranbourne train once I get to Flinders. Connex is retarded.

Sydney's trains are definitely better run. Unfortunately their trippy double decker trains to not nullify their card system. Metcards own.

What came first, the spamming or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids reading thousands, literally thousands of posts about anime, 4chan, flaming, goatse and emos. Did I make terrible posts because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I made terrible posts?
