Last week (but for what seemed like five years) 774 invited callers to promise good deeds.
Remember the last time a neighbour popped by with lemons from their tree? Or when you pitched in at the local childcare centre's working bee? Then you'll know that warm glow you get from helping out.
Listen in on stories of good deeds done and call in with your Day of Love pledges.
One little girl even rang through to say she was going to give her pocket money to a homeless man. Awww. She also promised not to punch her little brother. Awww. Awww.
Dunno who thought up this sickening, sanctimonious, saccharine suck-fest, but look out if you are an ABC listener in another state; this kind of virus spreads faster than ebola at a Congan mission, and it's twice as toxic.
Speaking of pledges, here's the Green Guide's Movie of the Week.
Sadly, though, The Pledge is a little ponderous, its great and serious intentions lost in a desire by Sean Penn to make a muted slow-burn movie that will explode briefly into an agonised grief (rather like his big scene as an actor in Mystic River). One of the finest philosophical detective stories ever written is here a dirge with more artifice than depth. It is an American adaption of a European book.
If that's the Movie of the Week, what's the Turkey of the Week?
Sean Penn: has he ever made a good film? The Indian Runner: snore. The Crossing Guard: snore. Into The Wild: "After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness." I haven't even seen it and already I'm asleep.
