See, in the beginning, I couldn't stand Robbie Williams. In fact, anyone who was remotely connected with a boy band made me sick to my stomach. Then suddenly, as if from a flash of mainstream hoodoo voodoo, I was smitten. See, I think he's probably revolting in real life. He's all laddy and I'm a reformed drug addict and all of you are a complete losers if you even look at a Bex. See, there is a distinct line between performers and their real life personas. They can be a right ol' ning-nong tosser and I couldn't care less as long as they tickle my fancy bone.
When he teamed up with Kylie Minogue, I thought it was such a miss match. You see, Kylie has no sexuality. She is one of those nymphs that just floats about singing and occasionally kissing someone on the cheek. As for Robbie, he explodes with sexuality. He's admitted that he's been with everyone and everything.
Now, picking Daryl Hannah for his music video was sheer brilliance. That liaison I could understand. Something extra, well Daryl has this little secret in the palm of her hand. A half finger to be exact. When she makes some movies they digitally enhance the finger so that she doesn't look freakish. I wonder if she still thinks about JFK junior. Her replacement looked similar. I wonder if she ever wonders that it could of been ol' Daryl in that plane.
Now Noel Gallagher is having some sort of war of words against poor ol' Robbie about the state of his mental health. I heard that these two were as thick as thieves. It coincided with Oasis being rehashed so I think it was just so he could get his name on my blog.
All this smoke from Robbie seems to have blown over my dear ol' town of Melbourne. Here it is just a few days ago. We were all coughing and splattering around the place because of all the damn bush fires everywhere. An eerie, orange light glowed all day and into the night. I didn't want to go outside.
One day later and now look at us. Thank goodness it all seems to be under control. Everyone is breathing. Everyone is glad that no one was hurt (except all the native animals that everyone is desperately trying to rescue) and everyone is going about their business to Santa's little bell. Ting-a-ling-ling.

Madonna furiously stalked Antonio - he gave her a bit of a nudge and a wink but that was about it. Regardless, she basically gave birth to his career in Hollywood which killed any credibility he would have had as an actor. I think its great though that he has stuck by Melanie Griffith besides all her reported emotional highs and lows, drug and alcohol problems and last but not least surgical addiction. I remember standing in line at the supermarket and the headline in one of the mags: "Antonio Forbids Further Surgery!"
This leads me to Awful Plastic Surgery where everyone who's been under the knife or has even flirted with the idea is listed. There is a line in the sand and we all know what it is. Ginger pops up as one of those people who found the line blown away by life's little sand storms...
See, I can understand why Ginger went kicking and screaming into her later years. She was so beautiful in Gilligan's Island so how can anyone blame her for not wanting it to last?
She would crack on to anyone in the show - even the dim witted Gilligan - who would have been impressed by anything - even the skipper in a tutu. Dear Bob Denver, what was life like for you after all that tomfoolery?
Here he is at the Gilligan's Island pokey machine trying his luck with Dawn Wells. Wells decided to stay with the face that she had and probably looks better than anyone. It was Mary-Anne who won the war over who received the most fan mail (apparently most young boys thought that she was the hot one out of Ginger and her good self - while men over the age of about 15 thought it was Ginger but they never really watched the show or wrote fan mail except probably for my Dad who watched it religiously) while making Gilligan's Island and as they say had the last laugh.... In April 2005 Dawn Wells sold her famous Mary Ann ginham blouse and shorts ensemble for $20,700.
