Word(s) of the week: I thought I coined the phrase “social netwanking” today, but a quick google search shows a couple of other peeps have thought of it too.

Song of the day: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot. A rather beautiful song.

Video of the day: Respect the Meat from “My name is Earl”. Worth a watch for the image of Earl in 80s sweatband mode, and his brother Randy reclining like Mr Rico Suave.

Media beat up/obsession of the week: Trinny et Susannah. Am I lollipop? An apple? Tearoom discussion had me pegged as a lollipop, with additional comments that I’m like Queen Victoria or a Victorian woman, or some kind of puffer pigeon …
They’ve got an online shape calculator that helps you find out your shape (for girlies). The cello makes me think of this famous Man Ray image …

Top put downs: I vote for:
The Professor – The Mary Whitehouse Experience. “I have here a copy of
your book, Origins of the Crimean War. It smells of poo.” “That’s
because it’s been inside your mum’s bra.”

Best sentence in an article this week: On The Mission concert – “The 2006 Olivia Newton-John and Chris de Burgh concert was marred by people vomiting and falling down a bank.”

Word of the day: Best dress: Heidi Klum at the Oscars in Galliano

Best dance routine: So you think you can dance Australia kills it. Tie between the samba and animated hip hop.
Animated hiphop by Vanessa and Henry (routine starts 2:02)

Demi and Jack do the samba (routine starts 1:50)
