6 of the Best: Sydney Housewives? I'm Afraid So edition
What's the story, Midori?
Oh, you know - 6 of the usual.
1. TV: The Real Housewives of Sydney
Having been given the filthy good opportunity to preview the first two episodes of the latest spouse for the Real Housewives franchise, I can confirm that the Sydney sisters do not disappoint. (Unless you were hoping to see a shining example of humankind exhibiting exemplary behaviour).
I'm sorry, I love it, let it go.
The Real Housewives of Sydney premiers on Foxtel on Sunday, 26 February.
2. TVC: Stroll by Apple
Manages to beautifully encapsulate exactly what I want in a mobile music device.
3. Podcast: The Joe Rogan Experience
A recent obsession of mine. It's hard to know where to begin to describe this podcast. It's fast, it's loose and most episodes are loooooong (think 2-4 hours). It's also hard to know where to begin with Joe Rogan. He's a searcher, a comedian, a UFC commentator, and loves physical fitness almost as much as he does drugs (which he often indulges in while broadcasting).
I think the thing I like most about him is not only is he highly knowledgeable and fairly opinionated, he knows how to have a conversation. He listens and responds to his guests, exploring issues rather than waiting his turn to unload his own talking points, which, for mine, is an aspirational quality.
He's just had Neil deGrasse Tyson back on as a guest - you can also view it on YouTube.
4. Magazine: Blue Mountains Love
5. Book: Rupert Everett's description of Julia Roberts in Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins
6. The guy that graded his ex-girlfriend's break-up letter
First of all, the guy's a dick. But it's kind of funny. How evil-genius infuriating. He got her good. He shouldn't have put it on social media though, and it's good to see he's regretting it. She's better off without him.
Also, what a dick.
