I was faced with a choice, at a difficult age. Would I write a book, or should I take to the stage

Friday, June 10



Ring all the bells viewers, because Popjustice appears to be getting RIGHT BEHIND the new Dannii Minogue "project" to the extent that it involves a song called "Lovefight". Popjustice calls it the "greatest song of her career", and, wonderfully, says this:

This probably counts as insider trading but if you're 'au fait' with the stock market, BUY SHARES IN AMYL NITRATE NOW.

We understand/maintain that:

* "Lovefight" isn't actually the first single off the album that's coming out this year sometime. But still, isn't this absolutely thrilling?

* "Lovefight" is a FANTASTIC name for a pop song.

* The song will be the second time Dannii has hollered for a "Doctor" in one of her songs (remember "Coconut"?), and apparently includes the following lyric:

Doctor, Doctor said that we should stop/But he don't understand how we get off

Great job, Dannii!


The brilliant Claudia "Caravan" Karvan is currently making a film with that giant-headed 14 year old Republican shit-merchant JoJo called Aquamarine.

It doesn't seem quite right, does it. Well, it gets even more confounding. Sean Micallef and Tammin Sursok * are in it as well. And just look at the synoposis:

(2006) Claudia Karvan, JoJo. Two twelve year old girls are in love with a dilapidated beach club near their home. After a huge storm, they discover Aquamarine, a mermaid, in the pool of the club. Aquamarine then falls in love with the cute young boy who runs the food bar and begs the girls to help her set up a date with him. Little do they realise he’s batting for the other team! A feel-good summer romp with something for everyone! Sean Micallef and Tammin Sursok co-star.

Did you write and cast this film, Alyson and Crystal? And they're in love with a beach club, WHAT?

It sort of sounds good

* We presume Tammin will be appearing in this film in "Metro Mix" format, or similar.

Glad Danni wasn't just relying on her 'success' in Celebrity Circus to mark another comeback... you go girl.

Oh, so you've changed it to Crystal AND Alyson now, have you? Aren't I good enough to have writen it by myself?

I can't believe you came back and read it again and I got caught out for changing it!


It sort of occurred to me after I posted it originally that although the synopsis reminded me of some of the best work of Bonzabud productions, some of the casting is reminscent of Alyson's Spiderwebster actor choices. Don't you agree?

Oh, so I can't write films like this! I'm just a casting hack! TSK!

I've written some fine work thankyou! I wrote a Hi-5 film that was discussed on their official message board and described as "exquisite!"

I can do more than cast and make coffee!

Is this SERIOUS, Fop? I mean, it sounds RIDICULOUS. It's not exactly TSLOU (The Secret Life of Us) is it?
