RIP Don Sinclair Davis

I must have been really out of it for the last few days to miss this rather sad news.

Actor Don S. Davis, arguable best known for his portrayal of Major General George Hammond on Stargate SG-1 (and the odd appearance on spin-off show Stargate Atlantis) passed away on the 29th of June after suffering a heart attack. He was aged 65.

Davis will still appear in the upcoming direct-to-DVD film “Stargate: Continuum”.

I would like to take this opportunity to post two videos, the first is a brief profile and interview of Don produced for the first season of Stargate SG-1.

The second is a tribute to Don, put together by a YouTube user going by the name of edison700

May you rest in peace Don.

A Current Affair’s Ben Fordham rings 2CC’s Mike Welsh to take exception with something Mike said

This afternoon a bit before 5pm, A Current Affair’s Ben Fordham rang 2CC’s Mike Welsh to take exception at something Mike Said yesterday. Ben made the call after reading a Media Monitors notice which said that Mike referred to Ben as a bully.

2CC have placed the somewhat peculiar exchange on YouTube:

As I said to Mike when I spoke to him a bit later in the day, I don’t know what Ben thought he was exposing because it was blatently obvious that Mike had not seen the video when he spoke about it yesterday, as the video had not gone to air, and Mike had been referring to Ben’s boasting on the Steve Price morning show.

I also have to wonder if the whole thing was a strange attempt by Ben to plug Channel Nine as much as possible.

Very odd.

Alan Jones diagnosed with prostate cancer

2GB breakfast host Alan Jones has just announced at a press conference that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will be off the air for the next few weeks for a few weeks when he has surgery, which is expected in a couple weeks.

More details shortly.

Update 12:33pm: I had to step away from the computer for most of the press conference, but I managed to record it anyway.

I suppose there’s not much to say, other than to wish Alan a speedy recovery. Best wishes Alan.
End Update
