Some are correct.

The footy is good though.

it's the closest australia comes to a true cultural hub ... and none of that quasi sydney shit-cutlure mongs here espouse. but it's a true cultural experience. inner city and the immediate surrounding areas are full of acceptance for fellow humans, the best food and drink and variety of both in all of australia and for the ladies, world class shopping.

a surfer wouldn't want to live there ... but surfers are damned to eternal hell with this curse of living by an active ocean. fighting that natural impulse to live at the sea against forces of gentrification and bleak job prospects for their entire miserable existence.

Film director Hazanavicius caused controversy when he wrote a defiant open letter to Islamic State after the 13 November attacks in Paris. “Here in France, what we love is life,” he wrote. “And the pleasures that go with it. For us, between being born and dying as late as possible, the main idea is to fuschia, laugh, eat, play, fuschia, drink, read, take a nap, fuschia, talk, eat, argue, paint, fuschia, take a walk … read, fuschia, give, fuschia, sleep, watch movies, scratch our balls, fart to make our friends laugh, but above all to fuschia, and eventually get a nice little handjob.” He showed it to his wife in advance. “I was, like: ‘Hey, you’re fucking a lot!’” she laughs.

Would that describe Melbournians too?

Melburnians in their wildest europhilic dreams couldn't hope to be anything more than a dismal third rate imitation french city - with the ugliest outer suburbs anywhere in the world, divided by a muddy little ditch and united by the most ridiculous football code on the planet.

What has this much vaunted cultural life of Melbourne produced?

Germaine Greer? Anything else apart from a procession of boof headed racist, misogynistic footy fcukheads that make rugby league commentators look like the Dalai Lama.

I've been to Melbourne three times. Once while I was in college.
Once hitchhiking down the south coast with my girlfriend. That was a great hitch actually. Picked up by a car of aboriginal fruit pickers. We shared their flagon. Got to Batemans Bay. I said I'd by them a drink at the pub. Publican wouldn't let them in. Hit Eden and a guy drove us through a burnt out landscape in his Beetle. He said he had been up three days fighting the fire. Had a couple of cones with him. Caught th train back. Heard John Lennon had been shot. Melbourne was okay. Stayed with friends who were working for Channel 9 I think it was.

Grew up in Melbourne, but it's a different place now. As far as surfing goes I doubt it would be any different to living in western Sydney, freeways will drop you around either side of the bay in little over an hour, so you have a choice of points to the west and beachies to the east.

Nailed it.

Sydney relies on a false belief that it is better than Melbourne / Vic.

Yes we have a great harbour, yes we have the beaches, national parks & Blue Mountains. But the underlying fake attitude of the majority of people from Sydney, with the lie that they carry around in order to believe that higher housing & rental costs, ghettos & no go zones with a dash of racism for good measure somehow outweighs a place of true international culture is just plain bullshit.

Look at the Comedy scene - Melbourne is the home of comedy in Australia

Music - A commercial "festival" in Sydney which attracts the worst type of punter goes for about 10 hours (thank god). In Melbourne, Rainbow gets 15 000 amazing people from all around the world & goes for 4-5 days. Also better dj's & live acts, nightclubs & night life in general - no lock out laws down there anymore.

Formula 1 - Albert Park

MotoGP - Phillip Island

Surfing - WCT - Bells Beach and Gold Coast, none in Sydney.
Sunshine, rainbows & happy balloons, all throughout the sky.
