CITIES RATED

Andrew Bolt has proof that Melbourne is more boring than Sydney.

UPDATE. And Canberra is more boring than Adelaide.

  1. You don’t have Perth to call Dullsville any more.

  2. Nahhhh, Tim, you’ve got it all wrong.

    Sydney’s just more low brow!

    Then again, maybe I should be quiet before someone points out I live in the same city as Traceeee Hutchison and Andrew Jaspan.

  4. NOTHING is more boring than Adelaide—and I’ve lived in Blenheim NZ, which is almost comatose.

  7. Sydney City has Clover.
    While in Melbourne City we have Underbelly and Nixon.
    Now in the suburbs we have what?

  9. As a Sydney sider I see nothing offensive or incorrect in the point Mr. Blair is making.

    Though, having been born in Perth, I also endorse frollickingmole’s accurate characterisation.

  12. I once knew a girl who relocated from Adelaide to Sydney.

    When I asked why, the response was:

    “I ran out of guys to fuck”.

    Hmmm, never heard of that before as a reason to move interstate.

  13. 12 - Lord! I knew Adelaide was a small town, but…

  14. Canberra isn’t very boring. Compared to such exciting, far away places as Toledo, Ohio, yes. But not compared to…. um….

    Well, it only takes 10 minutes to get to work, and Sydney’s only a 3 hour bus trip away. It took me almost that long to commute from Sydney’s Northern Beaches into the CBD.

  15. Melbourne has Catherine Deveny, which is something to reflect on.

  16. I think I found doidy music. If that is what the Irish listen to, they and their backpacks should be expelled forthwith.

    Your vile act of aggression leaves me no alternative but to retaliate.

  26. Adelaide less boring than Canberra?

    Having lived in and loathed both, I have to disagree.

    From Canberra, when you leave the city is only a few hours to Someplace Else. Most of Someplace Else is interesting.

    From Adelaide, when you leave the city, things go Downhill Fast.

    Downhill Fast blows big lumpy chunks in any language you care to name.

    Canberra, at least, has excellent libraries, museums and the War Memorial: it also has a fabulous public exhibition of the most primitive of primate life-forms, Homo Headinarseicus, AKA ALP politicians and their missing link, the pre-hominid species, Protohomo Greenicus. There is also a rare survivor of the loathesome sub-species Raginghomo Brownii

    Adelaide has third generation welfare bludgers who stuff the chopped up corpses of their relatives into barrels so they can steal their dole payments.

    You say that like it’s a bad thing, MarkL - they’re all off the dole now!

    I must visit Canberra again, haven’t been there since 1981, to the War Memorial. Must go and see it again as it’s changed a lot since then.

  29. There used to be a saying that the only thing that moves in Melbourne on a Sunday is the smoke from the crematorium.
    But I’ve been everywhere and I can say with absolute authority that Wellington NZ is the dullest capital city in the world.
    Once spent a Christmas Day there. We were the only customers staying in the city’s leading hotel. Except for the manager, the staff all had the day off.
    Went for a walk in the park and streets for about 30 minutes and saw not one human, living or dead.

  31. I drove across the Story Bridge on Friday nite, on my way home from Brekkie Creek.

    Brisbane is really pretty from the Story Bridge, and it seems like you can reach out and touch the buildings across the river from the bridge, which is at a 90 degree angle to the city. Story Bridge, Brisbane.

  34. MarkL and kae, my only visit to Canberra was in 1954. Do you think there has been enough change to make a second visit worthwhile?

    (#31 Kae: Bugger! I’ve missed another Brekkie Creek.
    Is that one of your favourite vehicles swooping past the bridge?)

    Posted by Skeeter on 2008 05 11 at 07:28 AM • permalink

  35. I’m sure I sent you an email??!? About Brekkie Creek?
    MareeS will be up in a coupla weeks, we’re going to have a re-run on the Thu or Fri 22 or 23 May.

    Yes, it is an F111 doing a D&B.

    I just realised driving over the bridge at night how beautiful the city looked, and how unusual it is to have a city spread out like that parallel with the bridge.

  38. Kae and dean, unless you have something more powerful in reserve, we better surrender to swinish!
