Target platforms: Internet, mobile phone, heritage media and IPTV
Project description: Getinthecar.com.au hosts the wonderful and hilarious world of me, Monni Log and all my alter egos who are hell bent on driving you to humorous enlightenment.

LAMP IVWelcome to my kitchen and as you can see my kitchen table is cluttered with all the detritus of the everyday. Sorry it’s a bit messy but at least it’s a sign of life. Go for a roam over the different objects and they will come “alive”, including the TV, the teacup, the teapot, recipe cards and handyhints. Click on the TV and catch up with a two minute episode of The Adventures of Zsa Zsa Lahore, the ravenous, red blooded redhead on her escapades of looking for love, herself and the meaning of life. Download them to your mobile and you have a portable soap opera, excellent for amusing your friends.

Submit your own life/relationship worst moments for consideration and let me turn them into a two minute techno colour reality. Enjoying the dramalette characters so much? Click on the mobile phone and download my MMS’; hilarious 5 sec picture messages you can send to you friends. Eg. “You’re late”, “You’re dropped”, “You’re GORGARSE!”, “Mum says…stop downloading”. Like I say, let me do the talking. And of course, download a ring tone that’s bound to embarrass you in the bank queue, eg The Strangled Cat, Maniacal Laughter, Boo Hoo.

LAMP IV

Click on the teacup and get a new twist on having your tea leaves read; a witty daily aphorism, eg Deep down your really shallow. Click on the handy hints and recipe files and get ideas on food for thought and thoughtful food. Looking for answers? Submit your own gardening, social ettiquette or cooking questions and let me or my alter egos provide the enlightenment. Too busy to visit getinthecar.com.au? Subscribe to our mobile phone information services and get Big Red’s 2-3min Cooking Classes with new recipes every week. Gardening problems? Subscribe to the Plant Police and Monni’s bogan twin sister Sharon will investigate and problem solve all your gardening dilemmas. Through internet, mobile phone, podcast or digital TV interact with Monni Log and her friends who are here to coach you from the sidelines in modern life. A world of absurd fun, sassy syntax, tacky merchandising, camp MMS’ and ridiculous ring tones… GET IN THE CAR! and let’s drive to enlightenment.
