I distinctly remember the first time I saw Charlie Pickering in 2004; coming off a piece of punched-in-the-heart theatre, I was cheered no end by his charm. 2007‘s show likewise was uplifting, but after 2008‘s let-down, I was determined not to see Charlie Pickering early in his season; I wanted to catch the bedded in, well-oiled, seasoned Charlie Pickering.

Ummmmm, that all sounds a little… gay. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Pickering’s central premise this year was simple: he’s just turned 31 years old, and he’s feeling very immature. And I can completely identify with this; in my mid-30’s, I fell back into the world of video games, then developed an addiction to anime and manga – none of which are (currently) deemed to be particularly “adult” pursuits. So, when Pickering laments at his lack of maturity, or of his inability to perform any of the tasks his father was capable of doing… well, I felt like calling him an immaturity wimp. Soft. Not really committed to the immaturity goal ;)

But outside this thread, he happily lambasts Adelaide Confidential, rambles through dubiously cheeky stories of schoolies engaging in sex-by-SMS, and leverages his father (again) with familiar tales of home renovations.

And some of the stories are familiar because, well, you’ve heard them before. Because this is the same old Charlie Pickering – the same style. The same form of audience banter (this night resulting in the discovery of the guy who wrote the Adelaide Fringe iPhone app – “so you wrote something I don’t care about? awesome”). And yes, some of the same stories.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Pickering is still in my good books; I love his honest style, and his upfront, sympathetic delivery is pleasant. But by only occasionally delving into the slightly risqué (the schoolgirl lusting sometimes verged on the creepy), I’d still consider him to be pleasant.

There’s that word again: “pleasant”. That’s a one-word summary, that is.

Charlie Pickering: pleasant.

  1. Animation is upright like any other TV shows having all forms of the genre. Verve also delves into action, comedy, story and even sexuality. The latter being a controversial genre is uniquely classified as “hentai.” All joking aside, erotica has a new semblance in animations. Magazines, computer games, anime TV series and movies now have their relevant sexually explicit twists. This type of zest caters to the needs of the older viewers as more adults evolve into satisfied fantasizing with sensual themes, anime-style. The reason behind the use of coupling in anime is that it is the only medium that can showcase some erotic fantasies that are too unworkable forreal people to take out like the use of extraordinary fetishes or the application of extreme violence in pure animation format. Certain concepts that are too good to be true and are often widely considered taboo in the world can now become the dominant focus of anime, without passing through all major controversies that may be brought upon by real life like films. Accessing hentai sites are mostly done with payment, although there are still lots of video on demand and streaming domains that present them completely free of obligation to users. If the latter happens then one can in a wink indulge in personal sexual fantasies may it be lesbian, gay or straight. More than that, joy can also be present in hentai as you tend these pornographic animations that are adapting the same storyline and noticeable characters from the original hit anime TV shows. The easiest way to watch Hentai Online is by visiting a free site like [some site] and signup with their sponsors as soon as you decide you want to watch something more specific. For a trivial one time investment you will have access to live sports, full episodes, movies, rumours, weather and much more.
