“West Australian Editor Dumped” reports Fairfax’s Schadenfreude Times; alongside a riveting article about a maverick cigarette butt. Well, that’s a fackin’ start, eh (er, the dumping, not the butt)? Now, Mr K. Stokes, can we pretty fackin’ please do something about Pam Casellas? Read the rest of this entry »

Fear, Love and Idiosyncrasies
New works by Linda Skrolys and Russell Sheridan

Dardanup, home to artists Linda Skrolys and Russell Sheridan, also hosts the annual Bull and Barrel Festival, where punters can commune intimately with 3 trillion blowflies while wandering aimlessly around a paddock eating roast beef rolls and drinking indifferent wines. The festival culminates after the sun sets with the ritualistic burning of a huge wooden statue of a bull – think The Wicker Man, but somewhat less exciting as there isn’t a policeman trapped inside.

“Baz’s Epic Gamble!” screamed The Weekend Australian, in a desperate bid to ignite public interest in the imminent release of its sister company’s $100M-plus movie Australia. On a daily basis Rupert Murdoch’s papers have been remorselessly exploiting the tried-and-true synergistic cross-media promotional aspects so beloved by News Corp’s fearless leader in a daily doling out of inane crap to keep the masses chattering over the water cooler. And with the movie about to premiere we would imagine that the News Corp film critic drones are busy submitting their reviews to Rupert and 20th Century Fox for approval. Meanwhile, the rest of the media, particularly Fairfax, appear to be preparing huge vats of cranberry sauce for what they believe will be the biggest turkey of the year. So, which will it be?

August 22, 2008

According to The Daily Telegraph, Delta Goodrem, our fave sort-of-singer, sort-of-actor and sort-of-babe, has just completed a NINE HOUR stint signing autographs at a Westfield shopping center. Fack, that’s gotta be some kind of record, doesn’t it? Did she have to wear an astronaut nappy? Read the rest of this entry »


Ambiguous Chiropractor Signage Sparks Grocery Shopping Brouhaha

August 2, 2008


(spotted near Herdie Growers Market)

“Why would anyone want a young chiropractor? It’s the old guys with the gnarly hands that can really crack your back.”

“Yeah, it’s kinda creepy. It almost sounds like a Personals ad.”

“Maybe it just means he treats kids.”

“That sounds even creepier.”

“Why do you always have to make things salacious?”

“Hey, it’s HIS sign, not mine.”

[silence]

“Maybe his name’s ‘Young’.”

“Wouldn’t it’d say ‘Doctor Young’ or ‘Dr Young’?”

“Maybe it wouldn’t fit.”

“You’re an idiot.”


Delta’s No Fag Hag, Mrs Goodrem Assures Us

Memo to Perez: Don't Get These Two Muddled Up

Smoking and Delta Goodrem – big news, it would seem. But the story now appears to have been deep-sixed on News Corp websites (ie. the Heath Ledger Memorial Website, sorry, I meant Perthnow.com.au), which probably means Mrs Goodrem (Delta’s mum and erstwhile manager) has been working the phones.
