Ready or not, Australia’s set to get its own answer to the infamous Jersey Shore with a new home grown reality series. Channel Ten’s The Shire – set in Sutherland Shire in Sydney’s South – will follow select bunch of interesting individuals, hopefully shedding light on the “tribe-like” subculture happening in the city.
Tonight Dave will discuss why a bit of trashy and frank look into a particular Australian city sub-culture might not be such a bad idea after all. Expect for Jade to flip out on another degrading, deplorable television program getting air time.
Dave brings in pop music journalist and premiere Madonna fan – Adem Ali aka AdemwithanE – to discuss the Material Girl‘s somewhat divisive new album MDNA. From muscly electronica with frivolous lyrics to confessional tracks about her divorce, any wonder why this might be Madonna‘s most interesting and personal album since American Life?

You can also read Dave‘s review of the video, if you’re so inclined.
Jade checks out an awesome new app called Frameographer (formerly known as Frames). Basically what it does is, stitch together still-frame iPhone images to make a video. Think stop motion or time lapse clips, everybody!
Jade checks out Highlights – a crowd-sourced, location based app that recommends places to go, so you’ll never be stuck for places to visit or good restaurants to bring a date. This isn’t just the places near you sorted by most check-ins, but ranked in popularity based on data such as photographs, comments, business listings, user activity, Foursquare tips, Gowalla highlights, and other social network activity.
Jade reviews The Shins‘ new album Port of Morrow. This is the American indie rockers’ fourth studio album and critics are saying it’s their most polished work yet. Will it get our Strokers’ tick of approval?

Dave just learned that Madonna‘s gonna be doing her first ever live Facebook chat on Sunday 25 March 10am (AEST) with Jimmy Fallon – which brings us to investigate (and learn from the best) what businesses and brands are doing with Facebook especially now with the new Timeline feature. It’s the dawn of a new era and you need to stand out on everybody’s busy news feed.
