What’s new with the ABC?

This ABC ident has me wondering, what’s changing?

Apart from, perhaps, a new colour scheme (I don’t suppose red, white and blue means they’re being purchased by America’s ABC?) I can’t see an awful lot that’s new here…and if Peter Cundall retired, why is he still in the promos?

It’s funny that this ident has appeared, as I was going to post some ABC promos I recorded around the time of The Bill on Saturday…I was quite pleased with what I saw…more on that tomorrow.

On Seven News at Six…

Ian Ross:

We reveal the cause of the F3 truck crash inferno

Errr, driver loses control of semi-trailer and it crashes in to a wall, fire ensues, flammable cargo (waste paper and rags) burns, road gets closed, fire brigade put out blaze, truck is removed from area, road gets re-opened, police continue investigating…it’s pretty straight-forward and considering that nobody else has any information about what happened before the crash, I think you’ll find that Seven News will have a nice two-to-three minute elaboration on what I just said.

I thought Seven News were doing well enough in the ratings to not need to suck in viewers with misleading statements.

Steak and Soy Milk

Along with my nightmare about working for Telstra again the other night, I had another peculiar dream about recipes involving soy milk.

I don’t really like the taste of soy milk, so thinking about this dream makes my stomach churn.

The basic premise of the dream was that a cooking show was being produced in my kitchen, and every recipe had to involve soy milk. It was quite concerning that this did not mean creating new receipes, rather it meant adding soy milk to existing recipies…and even things which I wouldn’t consider a recipe.

The image of a steak being cooked in a frying pan filled with soy milk is one of the most disturbing images I can think of, and I can’t get it out of my head.

I think I’ll stop there, you don’t need to know about the other soy milk recipes.
