#170 – Michael Bublé

1 09 2010

There are some words that, by their very presence, indicate that absence of the thing they’re supposed to mean. Bogans adore these words. If a bogan feels the need to indicate that it is in control of a situation, it is not. If its clothes are ‘couture’, they are not. The bogan likes to eat, wear and listen to things that are ‘classy’ and ‘sophisticated’. They are not.

Some time ago, the bogan realised that it didn’t mind listening to something that wasn’t David Guetta or Kings of Leon. Much as the bogan is enamoured of those artists, it knows full well that they do not confer the requisite class or sophistication that it craves. Moreover, the bogan’s definition of ‘classy’ music effectively means that it has a slower tempo than its more frenetic counterparts.

Ministry of Sound attempted to capitalize on this by simply removing the processed beats from Guetta and his ilk, then adding whale noises. The bogan, while intrigued, simply saw it as ‘cool’, not ‘classy’. It wanted both. It knew of Sinatra, of Van Morrison, but they were old, and the bogan, in its quest to be cool, needed to listen to something ‘new’ and ‘fresh’ as well as ‘classy’.

Then, as with every time the bogan wants something, there was a marketing genius attuned to bogan needs ready and willing to rush in and fill the vacuum with the speed of Guetta’s processed beats. This time, it was a Canadian midget who, through various crafty camera angles and performing on the show of our very own diminutive bogan avatar, managed to convince the femme-bogue that he was hot. He then begun to sing the songs of Sinatra and Morrison. Badly.

He had the bogan about thirteen seconds into his cringe-inducing reproduction of ‘Moondance’, as he mimicked the Robbie Williams formula of bogan-baiting by wearing a tux and engaging in a great many finger-guns at the camera. The bogan instantly was imbued with class. The male bogan knew it now had an insta- means of pulling max hot sluts, by virtue of the classy music it listened to.

Confronted with the corporate lawyer-cum-lingerie model at the local glassing barn, the bogan hesitated before proclaiming that the Bublé song being covered by Appletini on the stage above was awesome. ‘What, Sinatra?’ the CLCLM asked. The bogan mumbled something before shuffling off to find a classier chick.

Have you heard the Bieber songs slowed down 800% on you tube? – it sounds even clarssier and surprisingly like This Mortal Coil with Whalemusic. Google it and have a listen.

That’s better than bad. I’d even go as far as to say that it’s actually not bad.

What worries me though is whether or not listening to concentrated Bieber may have any health effects. I’m thinking along the lines of acne, diabetes, or – even worse – Bieber Fever.

Tone, Just keep your knickers on, if you feel the urge to throw them at young girlish lads or even lady boys, stop listening immediately and put on some Kings of Leon.

i think they’d ask why they can’t sing in bloody english.

2 09 2010

Yes, my point exactly – but can you imagine if they then accidentally heard them sing the only song they did in English – it would confuse them no end.

2 09 2010
Dan

Jonsi’s solo album is filled with english. So they may latch on to them afterall…

2 09 2010
vivisection

Fortunately there is too much going for him that would turn off your average bogan.
1. Jonsi is gay, but unlikely to share celebrity gossip on a morning show – no boguette points to be gained.
2. Jonsi is blind in one eye, 2 might be maxtreeme enough, but 1 wouldn’t do it for a bogan.
3. He plays guitar with a bow – too arty, perhaps if said bow had a laser attached, or was bedazzled;
4. They are foreign,but not from somewhere the bogan could take about with immediate authority;
4. Hoppipola, if known to the bogan at all, would immediately be associated with David Attenborough documentaries, therefore considered possibly educational and hence uncool for bogans;

I think they are safe – mind you some right twats went to the Heima film premiere / acoustic show and asked some of the stupidest questions I have ever heard. I don’t think they were bogans though, but they were up the back and may have been.

2 09 2010

i think they’d just see the pictures of jonsi and decide he’s far too gay to have anything to do with.

The last time Rieu landed in town a muso from the conservatory opined that he played with the skill of a gifted 12-year-old. Which would have put said muso guy at risk of some kind of menobogue fatwah and living in fear of his life.

but he’d be able to move faster the rieu’s fans so they’d never catch him.

That may be the case, pb but I’ve always viewed the menobogue kind of like the hippo. Slow-moving most of the time but capable of a lethal turn of speed when provoked. When I told my mother-in-law that Golden Mullet Boy played violin like a 12-year-old I nearly lost a kidney.

Dean seemed to do everything so effortlessly, that it must’ve taken a lot of work. Compare his version of Sway to the Buble one and you’d have to wonder why anyone would continue to listen to Buble, but of course most wouldn’t search out Deans cover.

Just yesterday I saw some fool, half dressed and on roller-blades swerve out in front of oncoming traffic, and he gave the driver a finger gun.

I’m convinced I know this person. If it’s the same guy I’m thinking of, he’s no stranger to being injured as a consequence of his own stupidity. And the finger bang is totally within character. He’s an absolute wild man of action sports.

I knew a drag queen who used yo sell Effexor as E’s in sydney nightclubs many years ago – she’d sell them to other drag queens and muscle marys and we would spend the night watching them carry on thinking they were Eeeing off their tits on an antidepressant that takes two weeks to take effect! Great example of the placebo effect. My friend made lots of money from suckers and we had great entertainment.

Hello P!nky! Good to see your presence again.

I hope this round of treatment fares well for you—as for me, I’ve been the best I’ve ever been for most of the last two months, now that I’m out there doing things that I love, combined with a far healthier self-prespective. So life’s been great, living true to my ethos, as well as meeting other likeminded individuals. Met a new drummer in our community jam band last night: he too has had long row to hoe as ourselves have had, and also he admires the fact that in spite of relative inexperience as a bassist, I can lock in perfectly with his bass drum and wants to from a band with me in it!

I have faith that you too will have that awakening and acceptance, which truly bursts the jammed door off of the hinges, for I know you too live an examined life…you will get there, I know it in me bones 🙂

2 09 2010
Pinky Has A Brain

Hey ya Baggie

Thank you so much. I have been diagnosed for many many years and have been in treatment for a long time now (16 years gulp!). I have been not fairing so well due to a change in therapists and mental health strategies. I accepted a long time ago that I’m not a “normie” and usually am the first to laugh at myself, something changed there for a while, but hopefully I am back on track. I am difficult to treat due to my disorders and the fact that most of the meds used to treat them, I am either hyper-sensitive too or they send me into psychosis. So that’s fun. I also don’t like to be fully medicated because I loose some of my “Pinky Spark” and can’t think and be creative or connect to people.

That is excellent news RE the band. Do you think you will do it?

I am staying as active as I can in the mental health community, I work as a second chair for 4 people and support them in between treatments/therapy. I do find it hard but so rewarding at the same time. When I get my degree, then I will be able to do what I know is my calling in life.

Wish my calling was to post on TBL everyday…LOL

I’m so glad to hear that you are better and finding happiness.

Still giggling over “Glassing Barn”. Will that ever get old? BAHAHAHAHA

Thanks again for your kind words. So many people are just hideous when it comes to mental health.

I will keep fighting on, if only to annoy the sh!t out of Fi.

Vivienne Westwood is doing stretch sparkle jersey leggings. It was probably D&G who came up with the velour leggings concept first, both this season and way back in 1991.

Matt of The Blue Mountains

As a huge fan od Sinatra and the whole Rat Pack, I am still going to defend Bubles honour. I completely disagree with people commenting that he doesn’t have a personality or that he doesn’t do the songs he sings any justice. Buble Brings his own style to these classic songs and without him many people would never hear them.
Sure Royal Crown Revue and Big bad Voodoo Daddy and many of the other Neo Swing revivalists cover the odd song on each album but never do you see them doing massive tributes to the masters of Swing and easy listening (except for BBVD tribute to Cab Calloway). Sure the Bogans may not have heard the original recordings, but at least they are listening to these great and wonderful songs.

P.s no one does My Way better than Sinatra!!! No one!!!!

John Mayer is the new guitar god and blues god of the bogan and bogette. I keep meeting people who regard him as greater than Jimi Hendrix.

Buble is not a midget- he’s of average height. Why even mention his height? I suppose the writer’s taller and his extra inches make him feel better about himself.
I like the feeling Michael injects into the songs he sings. It’s so much finer than all those irritating shouting ‘Divas’ that try to force feed us emotions.
For those who can’t see past the obvious, he sends himself up when he does all those bogan-bating moves.

he is better than the ‘shouting divas’ as you put it, but that really isn’t hard.

While changing channels I unfortunately came across a Michael Buble concert and he was doing his version of Me and Mrs Jones. What used to be a poignant Billy Paul number about two married people involved in an affair turned into a jaunty pop tune at the hands of Mr Buble. He completely stripped it of any depth or emotion (as he does with most of the other songs I’ve had the misfortune to catch a snippet of).
