Oprah To Find Armstrong’s Blood Bank?

He owns seven of them but it’s unlikely Lance Armstrong will wear one of his yellow jerseys when he gets interviewed by Oprah next week, priced at $51 by online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to don the lycra for the chat.

Thankfully, it looks unlikely that Armstrong will follow in the footsteps of chief Scientologist Tom Cruise and jump up and down on the couch during the much anticipated interview, with the big odds of $21 on offer for him to do so.

But what we all want to know is whether he will admit to doping, but sportsbet.com.au’s market suggests the Texan will stick to his guns, with no admission priced as the $1.67 favourite and $2.10 available for the Texan to admit to doping.

Sportsbet.com.au has a raft of other interview specials, including will Lance’s partner appear on the interview ($1.33), will Lance greet Oprah with a kiss ($1.40), will he cry during the interview ($2.80) and whether or not Oprah will find a secret blood bank in his house ($101).

“We think it’s unlikely he will go all Tom Cruise and jump up and down on the couch during the interview but one thing is for certain, she will be baying for blood,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
“Let’s at least hope he gets better fashion advice than Tiger Woods received ahead of his TV apology a while back!”

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
