Ben Cousins – Such Is Life – Part 2

August 30th, 2010

What a clown. There’s no point really discussing him. All the documentary did was try and glamorise him, which as a decent sports person it didn’t achieve. But as an absolutely disrespectful person, it has glamorised him. Why do we even bother to talk about people like him – giving them the time and publicity they want and achieve. The media is ridiculous – myself inclusive.

The end.

Ben Cousins – Such Is Life – Part 1

August 26th, 2010

In 2008 a 2 part documentary about Ben Cousins’ drug addiction was produced and directed by Mushroom.

All the radio shows and morning TV shows discussed whether they thought it would be good or bad for children to watch the documentary called “Such Is Life”.

So after it aired on Wednesday night – was it good or was it bad?

I don’t think it was either – but I do think it was completely pointless. What did this doco strive to achieve? Educate children about the destruction drugs can cause? Educate adults on the destruction drugs can cause? Or was it just a biography on his life?

If you ask me, I think the show is just glamorising him even more… “Oooooh we now love Ben, he is so sweet and ooooh we give him sympathy now”. He was sitting there with his crisply capped teeth, speaking about his life and what he did. Not once did he feel bad or regret what he’s done. He sits there telling the stories. Yes he admits he’s a drug addict, but all the bad things he said were quickly covered with a positive.

Now if I were a 14 or 15 year old boy watching that, I would be thinking “hey, I’m going to take drugs, it made me popular with the popular people and look at that, I’ll come out of it fine, my life will be fine”. To me, all it has done is show that drugs can affect your life, but you can come back good from it, and still have everything at the same time.

All the media, and the documentary call him a hero, or a Prince. He is neither. He is lucky. He is lucky that he is not dead. I don’t understand why he is called this. Why he is a super-star? Why?

He sits there in his Armani jacket laughing about fleeing the booze bus, running through houses, jumping roofs, and swimming about 1km across a river to get away from police.

He pleads about how he has never taken performance enhancing drugs during or before a game. Fair enough.

On and on and on the doco goes… Talking about Ben and what happened next. He refers to the police as “they”, he constantly defends himself. He laughs about what happened.

So what was the point? I think Ben Cousins was paid a huge amount of money to open up his life to the cameras. He has fantastic publicists, amazing managers and very smart people marketing him. This was boring – it was like watching a series about criminals and their crimes, just the story but no point for telling it.

This documentary was beautifully edited, the honesty from all involved was raw, but it lacked meaning, it lacked education, it lacked a point.

Part 2, the conclusion to come tomorrow.

What To Buy The Dog That Has It All…

April 20th, 2010

I’m not really a dog person, but they are cute to look at for a little bit and that’s about it. I sometimes babysit my sisters dog Montez, he is a teacup Chihuahua which I do enjoy because he is alot of fun and very charismatic. But when it comes to owning one, no thanks.

When I saw the furniture available for your prized poochies, it made me laugh and I had to share with you. An Australian company which make everything here too, they have found a niche market for people who treat their poochies like their children.

I know a few people who wouldn’t laugh and will probably click the link below and purchase a leopard, cow print dog chaise for around $320.

They remind me of something that Rose Porteous would have had in her old Perth mansion, or something that Jeanne Little would have at home. Geez it makes me laugh!

Anyway, if it’s up your alley… check out the rest of the range, it’s actually quite cute.

(I’ve also thrown in a photo of Montez the sweetest little puppy in the world!)
