"The world is a stage, the stage is a world of entertaaaaaaaainment."
Judy, Ethel and a cast of thousands!
Movies, books, TV and music are four of my great loves as well however I have spent so long on this website that I have decided to publish before this section is completely finished. Therefore this page so far is little more than a list of links to sites about my favourite movies and movies stars, TV shows, authors and music.
Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn if you check these sites out or not.
Pictured at right is a real pair of Ruby slippers worn by Judy in The Wizard of Oz and now on display in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.
Xena: Warrior Princess
So wonderful she earned her own site. Click here to visit.
Star Trek: Voyager
My latest Grand Obsession! I was only introduced to this show about 2 years but have now seen nearly every episode, albeit in a rather haphazard kind of way. Captain Kathryn Janeway of the Federation Starship Voyager is now one of my biggest heroes. Unfortunately, like Xena, Voyager ended this season after 7 great years. But there are always re-runs!
I have been fortunate enough this year to meet all of the stars of Voyager and many from the other franchises. Check out my Star Trek page for details.
Simply wonderful show Sweetie Darling.
Blake's 7 was a very low budget British Sci-fi series of the 80s which was absolutely brilliant. Sure the sets wobbled when the actors bumped them and every planet they visited resembled a quarry in southern England but it was well written with strong and interesting (and not always good guy) characters and very well acted. My favourite character was Servalan, aka Supreme Commander. Servalan was a true pioneering intergalactic Power Pussy and so deliciously nasty. What a woman! And as you can see from the links below the show still has a cult following, especially in Britain.
A classic of its genre - TV series about trains and three girls with boy's names. And just LOOK at all of these sites. My favourite character? Betty Jo - the tomboy of course.
last but not least the Taco Bell Chihuahua
- this little cutie is my
favourite tv personality in the US. He certainly beats Regis hands down.
Other Books I love
Book I'm currently reading:
Hiding My Candy by The Lady Chablis.
This excellent Aussie folk band was an early favourite. I thought that Judith Durham, the lead singer was the most wonderful person in the world when I was about 5 and I even named my dark haired doll 'Judith' in her honour. Here they are, all cute and innocent looking, doing their best Von Trapp Family impersonation. Find out all about the Seekers at:
Bay City Rollers
"B-A-Y. B-A-Y. B-A-Y-C-I-T-Y. With an R-O-double L-E-R-S. Bay City Rollers are the best!" When adolescence kicked in I, like many girls my age, fell for the Bay City Rollers BIG TIME *sigh*. I was a card carrying member of their Aussie "Friendship Club" and went to see them live in concert at Footy Park in Adelaide. This was one of the highlights of my teen life even though I had to go with Mum and my brothers. They're still kicking around and I still have a soft spot in my heart for the BCRs, especially Leslie. You would be amazed to find out how many people share my old flame - and how many websites there are out there dedicated to the "Bay City Bumboys" as the jealous boys at our school used to call them. Here's just a selection:
Then I grew up (a little) and now even though I listen to a lot of singers and bands, kd has been my favourite since I first saw her stomping 'round the stage at the Calgary Winter Olympics of 1988. I've seen her on stage four times and continue to be blown away by her amazing voice, especially during her tributes to Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline - "Cryin'" and "Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray". Hopefully I will catch her on tour again sometime real soon.
Other bands and artists I like a lot
