P.S. Speaking of facelifts…

To avoid attracting the unkind label ‘Overzealous Promotions Daddy’, it’s probably best if some actual news content made it into this post as well, in addition to the more-than-ridiculous  ‘Go Premium’ call to arms

Call them sequels, reboots, comebacks, reimaginings or even offerings from the ‘there’s still life in the old dog yet’ manufacturing plant, these ‘oldies but goodies‘ are all set for reincarnation in the near future –


  1. The three surviving members of rock icon band LED ZEPPELINJohn Paul Jones, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page – have reunited to co-author an illustrated book due out in October to mark the band’s 50th anniversary.
  2. A new Crocodile Dundee movie starring Paul Hogan entitled THE VERY EXCELLENT MR DUNDEE will begin shooting next month.
  3. She had style! She had flair! She’s back? 90’s tv show THE NANNY creator Fran Drescher has confirmed she is in talks to reboot her signature show.
  4. 76-year-old ex-Beatle Paul McCartney will release his first new album in five years, titled EGYPT STATION in September.

And finally…

Congratulations go to this blog’s favourite politician JACINDA ARDERN – New Zealand’s Prime Minister and someone whose been spoken about on these pages before – on the occasion of the birth of her first child yesterday. She is only the second world leader in modern times to give birth while in office, the first being Pakistan’s then-prime minister Benazir Bhutto 28 years ago.

  1. I think I’m blinded by the light of tinsel town above. I don’t know what to say. Have all my Christmas’s come at once? If what you say is true, then I no longer need to hold a job. I have indeed arrived. Utopia is here…

  2. I’m intrigued. I thought you were a frustrated journalist but they only work in black and white. I’m now thinking you’re an experimental artist on the magic mushrooms.

  3. Oooops!
    I don’t think the image made it through Cathy.

    I have been considering expanding the SCENIC WRITER’S SHACK merchandise range to include logo-bearing SWS headbands, SWS striped dress socks, SWS tabasco sauce, SWS christmas ornaments, an SWS inflatable punching bag, SWS soap and even SWS baby bibs.

    Someone suggested to me a while back how ’bout a SWS whoopee cushion – but I had to draw the line in taste somewhere so I said no to that.

  4. I do appreciate the discerning taste when drawing the line with the SWS whoopee cushion, but do want to be first to receive the tabasco sauce. I’ll line up from midnight for that release.

  5. You’re definitely in form again Rog.

    You’ve touched on behaviour that I have always found a little amusing, and to be honest easy to ridicule, and that is people (mostly teenagers and I presume folk who don’t have to wake up the next morning and go to work) who are that dedicated/obsessed/single-minded – call it what you want – to be able to brave the cold of a couple of nights sleeping in the open just so they can be the first in line to purchase the latest version of whatever particular technology device is in vogue or, in the old days, concert tickets to their favourite music artist.

    The most crazy example I’ve seen (I call it crazy probably only because I’ve never been in a situation of need myself to warrant such action) on the news is parents who camp out overnight so they can be first in line to secure their children an out-of-catchment placement in one of Brisbane’s ‘better’ schools.

    • I sense you are a person who recognises quality and value when you see it.
      GO PREMIUM is that quality.
      GO PREMIUM is that value.
      And you quite obviously are that discerning person who enjoys rewarding themselves with the finer things in life.
      It’s all so clear.
      And it ain’t no dream.

  6. One thing I can say about parents camping out for better school opportunities is that there probably are some pretty bad schools out there. 🙂
