    Nice set of pictures. I love how the water is so blue and clear!

    Yeah, I love it too. Makes me want to be there. I just reread the comment I left on K’s blog, wasn’t anything harsh. It didn’t take a lot to set people off. Honestly, I don’t really care. I have enough drama in my own life and I don’t need anymore.

    Yeah I wouldn’t mind going on a vacation there. The pics are amazing, though not mine! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for visiting, Sandra.

    I wonder if they’re going to put more BB shows for Oz because of those controversial incidents? Hmmm… Last time I heard they were going to stop the show and toss it to the scrap heap. BTW, my blog address is http://smallvoices.wordpress.com/ because I have one account with two blogs on it. I’ll attempt to update the above address blog frequently because being me, I have an opnion on a lot of things, which scares a lot of people. Just notifying on the address; the one you put the ‘roll is the one I keep for sentimental reasons despite it’s newness πŸ™‚

    I have heard that they already getting ready to produce the next BBAU 7. There is no bad press in my marketing book, (unless you get arrested drunk whilst driving and shout anti-semitic slogans, ie Mel Gibson) and I think that Channel 10 would be stupid not to have another season. I think that they might change the format, maybe add peope from all walks of life and not just young singles. Since Adults Only has been cancelled, it’s quite possible.

    Ok, I changed the addy in the blogroll, no worries.

    If they add people from all walks of life, how about the intelligent people? The majority of us these days are not very adept in the social department 😦 and that problem alone might prompt people to kick those sorts of people off BBAU. But adding different people no matter what would be a nice change πŸ™‚ Remember the politicial member from the other series? That was interesting πŸ™‚ and thanks for changing the slight error in address because of my lack of foresight πŸ™‚

    BBAU06 was the 1st series of BBAU that I have watched. Same goes for BBUK, started just this season. This whole thing started because I really enjoyed the UK version of The Apprentice. A lot better than the American one, I found. Same goes for BB.

    Look at BBUK, they did their casting really well and included young people, older people, some people in relationships and some singles. It worked out pretty well. Naturally, BBAU is a lot bigger than BBUK, you can tell by the production values of the BBAU shows.

    No problem about the change for your URL. And BTW, sorry for the moderation, I’ve been having some spamming problems recently, will get resolved in the next few days hopefully.

    Remember Sara-Marie from BBAU a few years ago? The whole girl population of my high school at that time got swamped with bunny-ears and bum-dance madness πŸ™‚ The phenomenon was amusing πŸ˜›

    Yes I noticed, the memes are quite intriguing, especially the ones that are being seen in BB.

    I think Jamie’s pants and underpants are the ones that must have caught the high school girls attention this time around.

    Reading at the title Post, I realized we have the same “sort” of topic. I was never gonna say this, but I just find it alarming when other people finds that you are talking about them, their true colors shows up. I would try to avoid these kind of people, I mean man this is a planet of blog, and we should learn to respect each everyone to create a friendly atmosphere.

    Delinking? So what, right? Just keep it up. I know you’re a nice guy.

    Ps. I like the 3rd picture – simply a beauty.

    and not to mention the song Fedele released with a three-girl pop group on the compilation album (distributed in all Australian music stores on a seasonal basis) called So Fresh during the year that season of BBAU aired during the summer season.

    @K: yeah, I totally agree. I don’t really know what happened but let’s just say I’ll avoid people like that in the future. And I know you are a nice guy too! πŸ™‚

    @Mentatoh: Did you hear Danielle single, Under The Radar, wasn’t that good, but I’m sure it will be profitable!

  15. Mentatoh Avatar

    No, I haven’t heard the single from Danielle yet 😦 It’s like trend for a lot of actresses to release a single or be involved in the music industry like Holly Valance or Natalie Bassingthwaithe here. The whole thing has gone crazy, I reckon πŸ˜›

    It’s not that great to be honese. I don’t really listen to pop music. I’m into IDM, minimal techno, micro house and indie rock.

  17. Mentatoh Avatar

    Let’s see… Jpop, Jrock, techno, electronica, industrial, rock, classical, trance and soundtracks πŸ™‚ I’ve just installed a Last FM playlist, a co.comments feed and my own RSS feed πŸ˜€ Go me! *dances around in a random part of the house*

  18. range Avatar

    I used to DJ before. Most of the time, I listen to music when I work on my computer or in the car. 80s and EBM, naturally some soundtracks too.

  19. Mentatoh Avatar

    I didn’t have any idea about which music genres I really liked, until I listened to Linkin Park and Marilyn Manson and broadened my horizons during my high school years πŸ™‚
