Re: Where do you get your news from?

For me, the Project got better once Waleed replaced Charlie.

I’ve only just got back into catching up on the news. From the US election - probably last month I didn’t read papers, didn’t watch news, just had enough of the world.

Re: Where do you get your news from?

I mainly get my news from The Project. “Newspaper” wise, I usually lean towards ABC or SMH. I actually get most of my views and thoughts from TheGH actually. It’s probably the best place for me to see both sides of the coin. My world views are generally pretty fluid. I’ll have an idea on my views, b...

I can't watch it. I watched one full season a few years back and I can't stand all the fake drama. I also hate those shows that show you what's coming up after the ad break.

Yeah watching through Supernatural, and their 15x 23 ep seasons, you see there’s episodes that are just fillers. Compressing it to 6 - 10x 1hr shows I find improves the quality. Plus Tina Fey made a point having less eps a season also means less writers on the show, which improves the quality of wri...

Just finished watching the Cecil Hotel / Elisa Lam doco on Netflix. It wasn’t too bad. 4x 58 min eps, but I think they could have condensed it to an hour, hour and a half. Felt they spent too much time with the websleuths and the history of the hotel.

Yeah they do. I was getting around that by adding bourbon essence and bourbon barrel wood chips in the secondary after fermenting.
