Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I went on Friday night to a couple of movies, both Australian. I'm not a film critic, nor a horror movie fan, but ended up at "Storage" and "Tuesday," both horror flicks. Wanted to see the one about the girl motor scooter gang, but had a conflict. It's a short; maybe findable on youtube...

Speaking of youtube, has the big foo-rah about the "plus size models" advertisement made it to European papers? ABC and FOX banned a pretty tame ad because there was too much cleavage and jiggling flesh. Which might be understandable, but it was to run during Dancing With The Stars, which is basically soft-core porn to start with...

Italian TV seems to be almost all softcore pårn.

... lots of "fanservice" (as they would say in Japan) of the T&A variety ... but surprisingly little simulated sex for a broadcast dance competition.

I think it must be the judges. They take the competitive ballroom dancing quite seriously, and they have their standard. Of course, the outfits that look like the female dancer forgot the other half are part of what draws the paying punters at the actual ballroom dance contests, so they can't very well deduct points for that.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
