Will Australian Musician "Jarryd James" Win the New Zealand Silver Scroll Award??
Is the Brilliant Australian musician Jarryd James gonna win the Kiwi Silver Scroll
So they have wheeled at the latest shortlist of Kiwi hopefuls to get there greasily little mitts on the fabled existence of a NZ Silver Scroll. Which is all fun and good but what kind of excuse can they have nominating an AUSTRALIAN for the New Zealand Silver Scroll did I miss something or did I just forget to take my dumb pills. It clearly states on Jarryd James wikipedia page that they talented artist (Dis-claimer his song "Do You Remember" is phenomenal) that he's born in Melbourne and yes thats in Australia. And don't get me wrong I know the KIWI Joel Little helped write the song making it a KIWI-AUSTRALIA song written penned collab kind of like a peaceful covert ANZAC military operation but are we really ok with this??? Well maybe its time to lay down are metaphorical musical weapons and give and Aussy his just lemon flavoured desserts and roll over and just admit it in front of the whole of Australia that the person who wrote the best Kiwi song was in fact a stone cold Ozzy Battler making us Kiwi muso's all look pretty bloody stupid and useless I just have to think would the Ozzies do the same for us? maybe so please comment below. Anyway thats the 2015 Silver Scroll Question Folks; Can we give the award to an Auzzy do we have it in us? :)
