It’s possible some of you might never have heard of singer Billy Ray Cyrus, but I’ll bet there are a lot fewer of you who’ve never heard of his daughter Miley who has been making a name of her own with her alter ego as “Hannah Montana” especially if you have kids around you! Over … More Smiley Miley
Our best wishes are sent for a speedy recovery to Christina Applegate, recently diagnosed with breast cancer. My memories of her are mostly from her role as the ditzy kid ‘Kelly Bundy’ from Married with Children and this is perhaps her best known role, at least for most males around the globe. Kelly was the … More Go Christina!!
Hot on the heels of my last post complaining about what a backwater the UK has become, is news of a Disco that has taken on board Homer Simpsons edict of “No Fat Chicks” and run with it barring them from entry to the club! The manager of the club who it seems is no … More Fat enough for you?
You want a discussion about diaphragms… or Brazilian waxing… or big cars… or plastic surgery… or… ?? Well now’s your chance. For those of you have listened to me ramble on incessantly about Angela Catterns (and occasionally Wendy Harmer) now is your chance to listen to those honeyed tones and find out why her voice … More Angela vs Wendy
So let’s see. Who got sucked into the hype and like a million others went out and bought an iPhone? Oops… you did? Well, if you *did* rush out and buy one I doubt you’ll be too happy reading the rest of this article. To be honest I was considering rushing out with the rest … More Bought an iPhone – seen better?
Had a nice email from Angela Catterns the other day in response to a ‘welcome back’ message I sent via her website. Today is her final day sitting in for Richard Feidler in his ‘Conversation Hour’ on ABC Local Radio 702 and I was prepared to say ‘bye’ for now. I’d even dug out this … More Angela's Army
There are all sorts of people doing all sorts of odd things in order to set world records, but I have to admit this guy from Queensland, Australia, is one of the strangest I’ve come across! Back in 1998, Les Stewart completed 16 years hard work. As ‘therapy’ after sickness meant he had to give … More Faces of Australia: Bizarre records
Always seeming to be the bearer of bad news, we are sad to report the death of of another one of Hollywood’s greats, Tula Ellice Finklea, far better known as Cyd Charisse (87). Ok perhaps Cyd Charisse wasn’t quite as ‘great’ as some, but she certainly had her moments. One of those ‘moments’, in my … More Vale Cyd Charisse
I’m no great lover of opera though I can happily listen to some of the great arias when removed from their pretentious surroundings. This morning on Australian Classic FM, they were playing the final scene of Puccini’s ‘Tosca’. Unfortunately this scene contains nothing I can claim to like listening to either. However they did relate … More The Tumbling Tosca
Revisiting and listening to a lot of the Floyd tracks over the past few weeks reminded me the film of “The Wall” existed so I sat around for a while at the computer yesterday watching it. Whilst nominally a Pink Floyd production, other than some credit for musical collaboration, it is totally credited to Roger … More Pink Floyd, "The Wall" revisited.
