The wonderful world of Cannes

As another year folds at Cannes, deals are being finalised, worst and best dressed lists are being composed, actresses are ringing up their stylists in hysterics, a few champagne sore heads and the red carpet gets rolled up, it is always fascinating to see what hype gets created out of the season. It seems to me that this year, the fashions and apparent poor taste in hairstyles dominated the fortnight as opposed to the films that were being showcased on the big screens.

Good evening Europe! The votes are in for the Eurovision Song Contest!

Ah, the year rolls by and before you know it, you have a strange craving for bad pop songs, over the top pyrotechnics and weird and wonderful outfits that can never be worn again in mainstream society. Yes- its Eurovision time again. I use it as a marker for the year, I know when it comes, the year is almost at the half way mark and Winter is approaching, so I look forward to snuggling in for 3 glorious long nights of predictable, unexpected showcasing fun while brushing up on my geography come voting time. What better way to learn who ones neighbour is than when they dish out 12 points to them?

Sleeping Beauty

Late last month, I was stopped in my tracks when I heard the news report that the singer from the Australian band, the Divinyls, Chrissy Amphlett had died. I knew she had been battling breast cancer for two years and had complications with having Multiple Sclerosis as well, but I thought, this chick is indestructible, she'll be right. Sadly not.
