Tales From the Middle of Nowhere (Vol.2) - Where I Meet Hall (or Is It Oates?) and Aussie Osbourne


I is in Adelaide. Not been up to this neck of the bush for a long time. Felt a bit rough yesterday, dodgy Chinese before I left the hotel in Melbourne.

Have a guess who I bumped into in the lift yesterday? Go on... you'll never guess. One half of an 80s yacht rock duo... no? Well, it was one of Hall and Oates!! Not sure if it was Hall or Oates... it was the little fella with the moustache! Which one's he? Fucked if I know!!

At the airport we had a full on heated debate about one's favourite chocolate bar. What started off with an innocent observation about how your traditional chocolate bar over here is slightly different to back home turned into a full on finger jabbing swear-fest!!

The debate centred round the premise of being in the local newsagents just buying a paper and if you had to choose one bar (or bag of) chocolate which one would you go for? That led to people pulling up chocolate from years gone by AND short-lived classics (Cadbury's Spira anyone?). The whole shouting match took well over an hour... pity chocolate doesn't last that long!!

Arrived in Adelaide still arguing. Caught a splendid run of 80s American action show cheese this morning. Get on this, they came one after another... THE DUKES OF HAZZARD!! (Boss Hogg? Remember him?), Magnum!! (Higgins? Remember him?), KNIGHT RIDER!! (That car? Remember that car? Looks pony now!!) and THE A-TEAM!! (Absolute dog shit). What a bill of Yankee doodle cheese! Magnum was my favourite... that brown and yellow striped helicopter is mint!!

Just got back from being out... not a great deal happening here although I did see a child magician in action, some of the WORST busking ever and a poster for an Ozzy Osbourne tribute act. His name?
