Truth Universally Acknowledged

The title of this blog is an obvious reference to my favourite author, Jane Austen. My other great inspiration is Ella Fitzgerald. I intend this site to be general musings about things which interest me, and hopefully you as well.

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

I'm a girl in her twenties living in New Zealand - of Irish and Scottish descent. I'm married to a wonderful guy and we live in a tiny house in the suburbs with a menagerie of soft toys and model aircraft. My main occupations at the moment are attempting to become and author and surviving my day job... wish me luck!

NZ Idol v2

I see that the queues are forming again for the NZ Idol auditions. That’s all well and good, but what happened to our winner from last year, Ben Lummis? He was crowned with much glory, and had heaps of publicity for about a month, while he released one single and an album. But then what happened? Where were the follow up singles, the signings, the concerts, etc etc? Apparently the recording contract is for a year. We haven’t heard a peep out of the young man for months on end. Which is quite a pity, because he has an amazing talent. I suppose he will just fade into obscurity now. Hopefully he got what he wanted out of the whole experience.

Will the same thing happen this year? For the auditionees, I suppose the possibility of appearing on television is enough motivation for them. But if it were me (and I’m far too shy!) I would be wondering about the validity of the actual prize.
