So bloody clever

In my years on this planet, I’ve learnt many things about myself through constant over analysis. It could also be said that I’ve just plain old tried lots of things. Gymnastics, tennis, swimming, rowing, aerial silks, flying trapeze, bungee jumping, scuba diving, cooking, etc etc. That’s not unusual. Most of us try different things through our lives. One of the things I had lessons in as a child is piano… Read More

I wanna go out, Dancing!

Well, a week or two ago Kylie finally released a lead single, “Dancing” off her upcoming album “Golden”. I’ve preordered the album and wait with baited breath. Today the video for “Dancing” dropped and it may not be as incredible as some of her videos from the past but it certainly contains a lot of elements we have come to expect from Kylie. There are sequins, dancers, a number of.. Read More

The 2017 Playlist… done

For about the last 6 years I’ve created a playlist in my iTunes at the start of the year and throughout the year I add songs that I really like. By the end of the year I end up with almost my soundtrack to the year. It felt like it took a while to get going with 2017’s list but by the end of the year I had 25 songs… Read More

Inspiration and class

She may not be everyone’s taste but Pink is one of those people that I really admire. She’s made a very successful career by not playing the Hollywood game by the rules. Her look doesn’t confirm to the pretty girl, nor does her body. Yet she’s hot as hell. Her music is unapologetically honest and auto-biographical to the point where I wonder what her husband thinks at times. Tonight she.. Read More

Don’t forget to play

When I was in Naxos, last month I saw a t-shirt for sale that I should have bought but didn’t. It said “Don’t forget to play”. That’s something that as adults we so often do. We get very caught up on what we think we should do and what society will approve of. I really like the idea of just doing something childish every now and then. Yesterday I saw.. Read More


There was one thing that was making me worry about 2016. There have been many events this year that have made me worry, Trump in general, climate change, the loss of many entertainment legends and a bunch of other things but my one concern was that we weren’t going to get any decent new Kylie music this year. Sure. It’s very much a first world problem but it’s a real.. Read More

Better get moving!

Tonight when I turned up at circus class, one of the girls there reminded me that I committed to doing a routine at the next performance night. I’d completely forgotten about that promise but now I have four weeks to get my sorry arse ready for a performance and put together a routine. I’ve been trying for ages to find a piece of music that resonates for me and works.. Read More

Please, no more legends

I may not have been a die-hard fan, but there is no denying that Prince was a force to be reckoned with. His Diamonds & Pearls album was in my collection in my early days of buying music, with it’s sexy lyrics and addictive beats. Prince may have toned down his blatant sexuality once he discovered Jehovas Witness later in his career but the man was still very edgy, sensual.. Read More

Everything old…

There is an old saying which Hollywood seems to be living by of late. “Everything old is new again” and that seems to be a shame. Today I saw online that Mrs Doubtfire is being remade with Seth Rogan in the lead role. Surely not? Someone I know thinks the article was being sarcastic but reading it I couldn’t see any sarcasm. Another movie that is being remade and probably.. Read More

Edgy and brave

Shaun Ross is a model that has been making waves in the modelling world for a couple of years now. He’s renowned as the first professional Albino model and he has a very distinct look that I’m sure polarises people. Shaun, who turns 25 this year, strikes me as one of those people that is just cool without even trying. Living in New York Shaun also is a talented dancer.. Read More

My soundtrack to 2015

Every year for the past 5 years I’ve created a playlist at the start of the year inĀ  iTunes. As the year goes on, whenever a song really grabs me I add it to that playlist and at the end of the year it is almost like a soundtrack to that year. This year I added more songs than ever to that list but a few of them didn’t survive.. Read More

And the best man won!

I’ve just sat through about a million hours of the X Factor Australia Grand Finale. It was the outcome I wanted and that was probably expected. A 19 year old guy called Cyrus from my home town of Wollongong won after a stellar performance week after week. He was by far the most commercial of the contestants in the finale and a very deserving winner. When he was announced as.. Read More

This should help

I’ve had a bit of a blah week at work. Nothing wildly bad just not a great week and for some reason today, even though it’s the weekend I’ve been in a flat mood. I have no idea why but I do know I don’t enjoy it. So, I’ve just cranked up some fun music and actually started cleaning this house. My housemate isn’t great at cleaning and neither am.. Read More

Happy birthday Kylie!

Today is Kylie Minogue’s 47th birthday and while she hasn’t had the chart success here that she might have had a few years back I don’t think she’s going to give up any time soon. She’s not to everyone’s taste, I know that so please refrain from slagging her off in the comments. In honour of her birthday I’m sharing her video from 3 years ago for Timebomb. It is.. Read More

So damned sexy

Now that the soggy mess of a movie “50 Shades of Grey” has come out everyone can finally go get it out of their system. Personally I’ve never heard of so many people walking out on a film that has been so anticipated. I’ve not read the books, nor do I intend to and once Jamie Dornan said he wasn’t going frontal in the film I lost the last shred.. Read More
