Was Detriot all about Motown?

Not according to a documentary I saw last night. Think Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop and MC5. Who I hear you ask? Just check out the video while I go off to iTunes or Amazon and order their CD.

Where is Australia

I've probably watched the Olympics for a total of 20 minutes. Not really my thing but I'm still very impressed with the UK's standing after 10 days. To top it all we're beating Russia and Australia. I heard that the Aussie minister of sport had bet our minister that whoever loses will wear the winners team colours. Looks like the Aussies are going to be seeing a lot of red, white and blue. Interesting interviews with some Aussies in London on Breakfast news this morning. One guy commented that the UK was only good at sports where they could sit down for long periods of time - sailing, rowing, cycling!!! I hate to break it to you mate but we've won the women's 400 meters and got a silver and gold in the long distance swimming event.

Roll on 2012!!!!! These athletes have put the Great back in Britain. Well done.
