Poor Aunty

I happened to tune into Our Aunty's 7PM News tonight. I had heard that they were retiring the 20 year old intro music, and replacing it with a "jazzed up" version. I didn't realise just how absolutely craptacularly fucking shitastic the new intro is.

It is really awful.

Unfortunately, even if I wrote to Our Aunty, it wouldn't do anything. They have already said they are preparing special shredders to dispose of all the hate-mail.

    There was an episode of "Frontline" where they hired an American who made them change the set colour to Orange as the blue was too peaceful and orange was going to excite the audience. Looks like the ABC news department might have had the same idea. On "Frontline" it only last a week, I am betting the ABC news might take only a little longer to get rid of the orange.

    Wow, you ABC tragics really care about controversies of craptacularly fucking shitastic importance, don't you?

    The thing is, they've jazzed up the basic tune several times in its existence - from the traditional fanfare still used on 774, to the slightly warped modern version Triple J uses, to what was until this week the ABC TV news theme. Variations on that theme until now have worked well.

    This new one though... whoever's responsible should be taken out and repeatedly whacked with a cricket bat.
