On another note...

You know who I feel bad for? Molly Meldrum. Or however it's spelt. The guy with the hat.

Every time an Australian entertainment celebrity dies, reporters always go to him and get his comments. From what I understand, Molly Meldrum is supposed to be a really lovely guy. Sure, he gets to jet about and meet famous people and make a whole lot of money for doing not very much, but just think about it for a moment. He meets these people, these amazing people who he would at least occasionally form friendships with and what have you, and as soon as one of them dies he is called out by the media to comment on the tragedy of it all.

It just strikes me as a little unfair. I know if anything happened to anyone I was friends with, or even an acquaintance of, I wouldn't want to be expected to release sound bites about their life and times, and how unfortunate the whole situation is.

Just a random thought.

Does Molly jet about and meet famous people much any more? Last time I saw him he had been reduced to appearing on The Glass House.

Well he no longer has to appear before us plebs via the TV. He is one of those people that famous people seem to like inviting to parties.

Hate him. He says every single person he's ever interviewed is 'a friend of mine', like half of them would remember him more as the gay Australian with a girl's name who never took off his hat.

He's slowly and inexorably become someone I despise, and I'm not always sure of why, except I just know I do not like him one bit.
