Antony Grew Some Balls?

Here is Antony at the "Festival of Dangerous Idiots Ideas" auditioning for Tony Jones's role as panel moderator. Antony is usually as painful to listen to as he is to read.

So someone in post-production of this video has sensibly felt that Antony's usual screeching whine could do with a bit of assistance.


The video features Antony answering the question: "Did you have any idea?"

No comment necessary.

They also spelled his name wrong. Antony's celebrity grows...

From the vimeo page:

"Antony Loewenstein, author of "The Blogging Revolution", is a Sydney-based independent freelance journalist, author, documentarian, photographer and blogger. He has written for the Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, The Guardian, Juan Cole, Mondoweiss, Washington Post, New Statesman, Huffington Post, The Daily Star, The National, Al Akhbar English, Dawn, Haaretz, The Nation, BBC World Service, Adbusters, Al Masry Alyoum, Tehelka, Sydney’s Sun-Herald, New Zealand Herald, Sydney Ideas Quarterly, The Australian Financial Review, Melbourne’s Age, Brisbane’s Courier Mail, Canberra Times, Online Opinion, ABC Unleashed/The Drum, Amnesty International Australia, Green Left Weekly, Eureka Street, Kill Your Darlings, Tikkun, Adelaide’s Advertiser, The Bulletin, Znet, Overland, Sydney PEN, The Big Issue, Counterpunch and many others."

I had no idea he was so famous. He's, like, an antipodean Chomsky, pretty much.

No doubt this announcement will soon appear on Antony's site:

"Look mum. I finally grew a pear!"

This guy almost hits just the right tone: a hint of world weariness, a dash of cynical left-wing academic-speak, and a smidge of smug know-it-all independence. Pity about the designer five o'clock shadow and the haircut that makes his head look pointy...
