There is no Van Halen without Eddie Van Halen. it's like ACDC without Angus.

I always thought this was a funny clip, comparing AC/DC with Van Halen. It doesn't feature Eddie unfortunately but is a good insight into the mindset of the bands.

Jacinda Barclay, a GWS player in the AFLW. I’ve never heard of her but she played AFLW, baseball for Australia and played in the LFL (Lingerie football league). Fair effort.

My (Danish) wife asked me last night who Jacinda Barclay was. I was staggered that she had heard of this (I confess I had not heard of her until she died).
It turns out this made the mainstream papers in Denmark:


I find this quite amazing and the fact that it did says so much about the differences between Denmark and Australia on multiple levels.
First, Denmark is streets ahead of Australia when it comes to equality of the sexes. I imagine some cadet journalist in this newspaper was monitoring foreign news feeds, saw this, and the fact that it was a woman would have barely registered.
Also it says a bit about a certain inferiority complex Denmark has in relation to some of the more "high profile" countries. There is no way a similar death in Denmark, man or woman, would make the news to that level in Australia.

I imagine most Australians only remember him from being on the Don Lane show with Doris Stokes but sceptic JAmes Randi died, 92.
