Brother from another mother


Australia’s most watched house is empty so Big Bro needs you to live in it for a while and maybe win some cash.

If you get in you could well become a household name and get to do fun things like Dreamworld appearances.
Last year I had to fill in for a celebrity housemate who couldn’t do the full day of appearances in the spare diary room chair just outside the Big Brother amphitheatre.
I was like Santa Claus but without the presents. The letdown on kids faces is burnt into my mind.
“Mum, what happened to Benjaman, I want the funny housemate, who’s this guy”, they would say.
The mums knew, they remembered my shows, “Friday Night Live” and “Big Brother Up Late” god bless them.

If you want to be on on the 2014 edition heres my tips for auditions :
Be yourself
Dont bite your tongue
Stand out
If anyone is a big mouth stand up to them
Talk to other people you don’t know auditioning
Wash yourself properly before going to auditions
Eat and take some food and drink to auditions
Bring a pillow
Bring a tea towel
Sing loudly while waiting
Speak in a made up language the whole time

Actually I really have no Idea if any of those tips will help. One good idea is to take chocolate bars and give them to the executive producers as a bribe. Especially the chubby pommy one, he loves chocolate.
BUT SERIOUSLY
This is by far the biggest and most successful television show in the world. 14 years since we started and still pumping in over 40 countries.
Every year a different show, with different people, love affairs, insults, shocks, tears, fights, laughs, different tasks and challenges. PLUS the stunning Sonia Kruger hosting up a storm. Oh and of course yours truly will be there voice-overing and doing my thing at the live shows. Come and say hello!!
Me in my voiceover booth at Big Brother. It smells a little bit, don’t go in there.

This year, if you think know someone who would be awesome on the show, NOMINATE THEM! Just send their photo, name, number and why you think they should be on the show to nominate@bigbrother.com.au

They will probably hate you at first but deep down they’ll be flattered and it will be the best thing that they ever did. They’ll love you for it.

ED’s UNDERPANTS

jade ed

Everyone now knows that the way Jade got her man Ed back was by being a mother to him and folding his underpants. I was moved by this amazing yet a little desperate display of affection and attention that I decided to write a song about it.
Here it is for your free downloading pleasure.

Hers a few more songs I’ve recorded for your listening pleasure…..

Its MY CAR

SCARE ME

Alien Holiday

These three songs I recorded with my band called POLISH.
More to come!

Get Ready for a BB Showdown

Big ShowdownWe’re back baby!

Theres a Big Brother Saturday night show that will be on for the first four weeks of the series called “Showdown”.
This will impact the housemates time in the house like never before. It’s hosted by the adorable Shelly Craft with crafty housemate Michael and arts and craft expert Mike Goldman. Yes, thats me, sorry to go off topic but I love arts and craft.

So the Brotherhood have succeeded, the games are back.

I wonder if this means I’ll get back my Ed Hard sponsorship deal from 2003.

Maybe not, but either way I’m super excited about being a part of the new gameshow on Big Brother that is SHOWDOWN.

Drink Driving Shock

This is full on!! If you’re squeamish or have just eaten I would definitely look away. Its an anti drink driving campaign by Leo Burnett London. Its part of a Pub toilet Shocker campaign for the Department for Transport’s THINK! campaign. The idea is that you’ll be in the dunny and this face goes smashing into the mirror from the other side you’ll think it was from a car accident and decide to never drink drive. Either that or make you accidentally crap your pants before you get to the bowl and or scare you from ever going to a public toilet again.

Battle Cam

Yes you probably think I’m about to tell you about the most amazing show on the planet that is Big Brother and that the auditions are on right now.

Im so excited about the enormity of the next series I’m PREXHAUSTED (preemptively exhausted)

SO onto BATTLE CAM!!
Battle Cam
Battle Cam is free to air TV KILM Channel 64 Los Angeles started by an eccentric Greek Billionaire by the name of Alki David

Alki David

Alki David

.
He looks like a whole lot of fun this guy.

Basically you buy a $10 camera from battlecam.com for the top of your TV and you battle it out for your 5 minuites of fame in a split screen challenge against other people. The public vote live from their lounge room and if the love you you stay, if they “poop” you, that means you’re kicked off. The longer you stay on camera the more money you earn. Yes, they pay you actual cash! I think its like $10 every time your’re on or something.
In a publicity stunt recently Alki David offered US one million dollars for anyone who would do a nudie run in front of president Obama with Battle Cam written on their chest. One guy did it but the President didn’t see it, so no cash for the nutbag. You think thats mental, a terminally ill man with brain cancer will died in front of millions of people when the TV station was just online.
Nikolai Ivanisovich, 62, was given the lethal injection by a doctor at a clinic in Switzerland. Its only a matter of time till someone does something stupid on this channel like chops off a finger or worse, kills someone or themselves. Oh, hang on, that already happened.

No its not a gay chat channel.

No its not a gay chat channel.


So I watched Battle Cam for about three hours last night and It’s a lot like my show I host called Big Brother up late. NOTHING HAPPENS FOR AGES!!! But when it does it’s really exciting. When I host or voice Big Brother Up Late we look for the one on one conversations a lot of the time because it’s a lot less convoluted and people are more likely to be more open. So in that aspect Battle Cam works really well with two people on two different cams at all times.
I watched people talk about their love life, a guy with tattoos all over his face talk about why he did it, watched a guy put pins through his hand, an ex playboy bunny interview an old guy about his life, its very different to any sort of television I’ve ever seen. I can honestly say that it has a future. Only real problem is it can get quite boring. So the concept needs to evolve. I think they need hosts there 24/7 that are up to speed with all conversations going on so they can pop on screen occasionally. Or have a break from Battle Cam and put on my dating show using their battle cam’s for contestants maybe. Check it out if you haven’t seen it!

Some Bali That I Used to know

Come to Bali, throw a party, surf, eat amazing food and then ruin your holiday by going on a detox. Im a little grumpy cause its my first day detoxing with Shuntaya where all I can eat for four days is a variety of herbal pills, runny clay drink, coconut juice and vegetable broth every hour or so. Not even the freakin’ vegetables, just the broth! Never done anything like this properly before. There was that once I started the 7 day detox in a box kit and canned it on the first day because it turned my ass into a tap. That didnt bother me too much, but the fact I was hosting a live national TV show at the time made it difficult.
So my brother Jay and my best buddy Sam and I all decided when hungover after my 40th birthday party that we needed to do a detox. Sam sent me a link for Shuntaya, I booked it. A naturapath by the name of Monica dropped by our villa for a 1 hour consultation with each of us talking to us about what we eat, drink and do to our bodies on a daily basis. Apparently shes e mailing what we need to do on top of the Shuntaya 4 day detox drill. Did I mention I hate getting old. Meh! I thought 1 or two litres of water a day was enough, just found out I am meant to have four litres four being 86 kilos. Whoops, no wonder my kidneys are always sore. Actually that could be tequila, but its good tequila, not that Jose Quervo crap, usually Patron or Mezcal. I digress. So when Monica the naturapath showed up Sam and Jay had locked themselves in their villas threatening an escape to DEUS temple up the road for free taco and tattoo Tuesday. Eventually they were up for the detox or what Monica called a body reset. If only I had a button I could push, only im not that way inclined. over 50 pills later and 11 sloppy metamucil type shakes we get a colonic irrigation tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Day 2
Just woke up to the sound of illegal fireworks being set off outside my villa. Seriously, Its 6am, who lets of fireworks in the day let alone at 6am. Fuck im hungry and grumpy. Must put on a happy face or I’ll scare evryone away. Shake time, oh jeesus, this tastes like ass mixed with off milk. Today is the ass hose out day, colonic irrigation. FAK! Im going back to bed. Alarm goes off at 7, first handfull of pils and thick tasteless detox drink. EW! Do this for a few hours then its time for the first Colon Cleanse. Wow, this is mental. You can actually watch whats coming out, I call it “Poo Tube”. It really is shit television. My brother burst into the clinic with his video camera when I was getting it done. Want to see? If I get any comments asking for the video I’ll upload my download video. Went to have a massage this afternoon and the worst headache I have ever had in my life hit me like a falling Balinese coconut. I had to take a panadol. My friend sam called me a cheat cause its not part of the detox.
Day Three
Woke up feeling pretty good, skipped the crap shake and ran to DEUS Temple up the road from where Im staying in Changuu, its bloody hot, about 31 degrees. Another colonic at 11am which Im kind of dreading. Did the colonic and it was a little more full on. Apparently didnt drink enough water and the clay drink thing was harder in my guts than usual. Fabulous. Betty the clinic ass technician went from massaging my gut to poking my bowel like a remote control that wouldn’t work. I felt violated a little. Its late niw in my room, tomorrow is the last morning if this rectum ritual and then at 11am I am free from Detox hell. Im thinking vietnamese food. I am going to eat it quicker than a……..(insert something really quick here). I cant think.

EAT-PRAY-DRINK-PARTY-LOVE

The year long filming of my movie “Shooting Goldman” is done, Big Brother series 9 is dusted and I’ve just turned 40 so its time for a party. Had some mates suggest I celebrate in Bali. Golden man I have never been to Bali and have always been one of those people who said that they would never go after Muslim extremist bombings in October 2002, but they were 10 years ago. I have friends who have moved there, previously lived there and constantly rave about how incredible it is for the heart, mind, soul and more importantly to me they have awesome cocktails. Oh, and then theres these AAMI ad’s on TV at the moment featuring some Balinese dude called Katut romancing a middle aged australian woman, Julia Roberts Eat Pray Love style. It absolutely cracks me up every time I see it. Im not embarrassed to admit it, but I loved the movie too. Javier Bardem is one of my favourite actors, he’s in it. So enough reasons to go, I’m there!
About 6 months ago I decided to start organising my 40th in Seminyak with the help of good friend Tracey Williams Strano. Tracy runs a wedding company called www.oolalah.com.au and was on my case to sort an invitation. So as you can see I sprayed myself gold and got shot by my best buddy Henryk Lobaczewski, please check his stuff its amazing. This is me as the real Gold-man!

Mike Goldman as Golden God

Mikes Bali Birthday Invite

Yes I actually sprayed myself gold for this photo. Things we do huh? So it looks like I have about 55 people coming to Seminyak and the first party has some killer surprises. Really bummed my dad cant come, he is on chemotherapy after having cancer cut out for the second time the poor old buggar. Part of the reason Im having the party in Bali was for him to get away and enjoy himself after his first scare. At least most of my other family members ar coming including my homebody brother Jay. Can you believe he has never been out of the country in his adult life. He wont know himself when he gets back. Anyway get well Dad, and as for the rest of my friends and family, you’re in trouble! Get ready to party.
If you’ve been and want to suggest something for us to do there please post it here and I’d say it will probably be on the cards. Stay tuned for an update of how things go.

Whatever you do, donut do this to your head

The latest thing in Japanese body modification.

Thats just plain messed up!!

Saline injected into your head with a large needle and then someone pushes their thumb into their forhead to make it into a donut shape.

Did they want a job at Donut King or Krispy Creme or something? What if they dont put the hole straight in the middle, it could look like a toilet.

Hey toilet head!!

Why not shave your head and put it up a little higher then it could be a cup holder.

What do you think? Would you do it?

International Emmy and Gold Lion Award

The Great Crusade Emmy Nomination

We got nominated!! YAY!!

Congratulations to the team I worked with on the Emmy nominated and Gold Lion Award winning Great Crusade comedy series. 24 episodes shot in New Zealand during the rugby world cup for One HD and Qantas inflight entertainment had me playing myself, eventually turning into a deranged killer running around a caravan park in New Zealand with a kitchen knife wearing nothing but a bath towel. Usual saturday night really. Produced by big time Hollywood Director Gregor Jordan and director Nathan Earls this was an amazing opportunity for me to showcase my secret acting skills. From this I’ve scored a part in the new Magda Szubanski, Ronan Keating movie Goddess set for release in March 2013 and for the last 8 months Ive been filming another movie about a TV host who believes his friends, family and workmates have been making a reality show about him his whole life, sending him on a quest to prove it. It gets very messy with various shock endings sure to surprise. This looks set for early 2013 release as well. Stay tuned for free tickets to the sneak preview.
