Catherine Zeta Jones is AWESOME!

Hot damn we adore Catherine Zeta Jones! We must say that before Chicago, we thought she was a fairly talentless, gold-digger...HOW WRONG WE WERE!

She is so AMAZING in that movie, she puts everyone else to shame! She can sing, she can dance and she can act...we would hate her, but she is just too fabulous!

Here is a clip of CZJ performing "All that Jazz" from Chicago! Feisty, powerful and putting the ridiculously thin Renee Z to shame!

Here is the "Cell Block Tango"...

We've got a lot of time for fellow AWESOME brunettes!

We saw Chicago at QPAC recently and it was AMAZING! If you get the chance to see it...GO!

Anyway Catherine Zeta Jones???

SONG OF THE DAY/ Ode to Britney or as we call her Britters

"Womanizer" by Britney Spears

So we have a confession to make to you, our dear and faithful readers...we LOVE Britney Spears.

For a very long time now, indeed since 1998, we have adored Britters. Sure there have been troubled times, rocky patches where we questioned our faith, but ultimately we've stood by her.

We proudly own all her music and dance to it unashamedly.

We had genuine concern for her when she began her tailspin into insanity. If I recall correctly we may have called each other, whilst watching the play-by-play of her hospitalisation on Perez (oh and every other news service).

We were worried when we saw the crazy in her eyes (we recognised it from occasionally seeing it in the mirror).

We tried to justify it when she shaved her head (it really doesn't look that bad?? ) and attacked that car with the umbrella (maybe she's just trying to be helpful...maybe it was raining...maybe she was just try to give the paps a hug).

Yet through it all we stood by her, believing that she would get back with Justin, wash her hair, throw those cut off shorts out, quit smoking, wear underwear, release an awesome comeback single and finally tour Australia. Now if you ask us, 2 out of 7 ain't bad!

The day we found our Britters was finally coming to Australia was a glorious day. It was like winning the lotto (except we had to pay $120 for the ticket, didn't win any money and that our lives are exactly the same). Now our seats may be hilariously bad but we don't care!

So we've picked "Womanizer" for SOTD. It was THE comeback single and it is catchy and fabulous! We love that she acknowledges her past crazy behaviour..."You say I'm crazy...I got your crazy"!

The video is classic Britters, it has just a hint of trash (hello nude seen) but is really, totally polished and great...oh and btw it has a shimmy in it! The shimmy, the dance move that everyone is capable of...god bless it!

So Britters...we love you, don't ever change (except please wash your hair, put on some underwear and get back together with Justin..ok, thanks)

Womanizer and Britney???

"Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond

Ok, so I am going to put it all on the line here and say *deep breath*, I think Neil Diamond is kind of amazing.

So I know he is kind of a dork, that he shows way too much chest hair (only Probst gets away with that) and has hair to rival Ray Martin...but who cares?! His songs are classic and great and hot damn the man can sing!

Check this out...

Oh and for those of you who doubt he is a legend, I've got one word for you...GLEE!

If he's good enough to be on Glee, then he's good enough for me, good enough for A&F and good enough for you!

Here is the clip of Puck from Glee, belting out the universal classic...ENJOY!

It is fabulous!

So Sweet Caroline???

So we are cheaters...

Let us begin by saying, that this post has been a long time coming.

You see when you really love something, finding the right words to express that is incredibly difficult. In fact, sometimes words aren't enough.

A long time ago, we feel in love with a man called Ricky Gervais and his little show called The Office.

That show is perfection. It is hilarious, sweet and quite simply there isn't enough of it.

Here is an example of the perfection that is Ricky Gervais, David Brent and The Office...

So when we heard there was an American version of the show being made, we were concerned to say the least. Alli's sister Heather was the first to get on board. Heather first started watching it, when Channel 10 originally aired it, late at night several years ago.

For quite a while Alli resisted the U.S version, believing there was no way it could possibly live up to the original. How wrong she was. The more she watched, the more she LOVED IT! It wasn't long before Kate came on board too, the show and it's charm is impossible to resist.

We here at A&F are truly obsessed with this show. Sure the first episode is essentially a word-for-word copy of the original, but the remaining 5 seasons of the show are pure genius. Even better Steven Merchant and Ricky Gervais are involved with it, so it's not really like we are cheating on them.

Not a day goes by when we here at A&F don't send random Office quote texts to each other. They are hilarious and random and damn it...they just make us happy. Every character in the U.S version is awesome! We love them all and we don't play favorites...most of the time.

So we thought we'd give you a few clips from the U.S The Office, in an attempt to bring it to the masses. Just think of us as Jesus and of YouTube as the're welcome universe

That's what she said...

Jim and Dwight


Oh and finally there's Michael Scott...awkward perfection. He perhaps makes us more uncomfortable than David Brent...yep we're pretty sure that kiss in "Gay Witch Hunt" sealed that deal.

So I'm sure this won't be last time we post about The Office U.S, but for now...




"Canned Heat" by Jamiroquai

It's been a while since we here at A&F, gave you a SOTD so we thought we'd kick things up a notch!

This song is so fun and catchy. You can't help but bust-a-move (yep we just said that, and yes we are aware that we're white, not like that Wayans brothers movie, so don't get your nickers in a knot Harry Connick Jnr, no white face involved) when it comes on.

Here is the official video

Oh and here is the song, as featured in the classic (by that we mean awful) movie Center Stage. Try and ignore the terrible, terrible acting and focus on the dancing. Let's face it who doesn't love feeling bad about themselves? Nothing gets that done faster, than seeing other people's talent...yep that is AWESOME!

So "Canned Heat"????

Why'd you do it to us, Harry?

What a fucking storm in a teacup. It’s events like this that make us grateful we have this website. It really was just a way of letting us whine to multiple people, rather than just each other.

Yes, we’re talking about none other than the Hey Hey skit/debacle.
Hey, Earth to Earth: It was a joke. Maybe you just didn’t get it right away.
All these self-righteous white folk are so freakin’ quick to jump on their high horses. How’s the view from up there, assholes?

You know what’s hilarious? I’m yet to hear one black person having a cry about it. Maybe that’s because they don’t care. Mainly, I think, because it WASN’T OFFENSIVE. The Jackson Five are/were black. It’s not like the group were saying black people are shit. They were just pointing out that yes, black people exist.
And once some of them were in a band that were awesome and sung songs.

And then one of them went white.

And now all these international journalists are getting on the “My, oh my, Australia is so racist…” bandwagon. GOD. Get a brain and opinion of your own. It’s funny, these English and American journalists thinking that Australia is racist. Um, guys…have you looked outside lately? Pot, meet Kettle.
I don’t know if you know this, but the guy that was Michael Jackson in the skit….yep, Indian. HOW THE HELL DID HE GET IN THIS COUNTRY?! GET HIM OUT, GET HIM OUT!

I suddenly just remember, why, in general, I don’t like people very much.

Loser international journalists on their blogs?

DECISION: Flawsome

Golliwog biscuits?

DECISION: Man, I wish I had one of them right now.

Oh, and PS PERSON WHO JUST DARED QUESTION ME. You know who you are. I am aware of the whole 'cultural signifigance' of it all - the whole Black Faces/Minstrels things.
My point, however, remains unchanged.

So loyal reader, it's time to introduce a new element to the site.

Please welcome...MOVIE OF THE MOMENT!!!

This is where we bring to you, the movies we think are AWESOME!!! Some are recent, some have been forgotten, yet all are AMAZING!

So let's kick things off...

The 3 Amigos!

Such a fantastic movie, so hilarious!

The best line of the movie, comes from Steve Martin aka Lucky Day

"In a way all of us have an El Guapo to face one day. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big dangerous guy who wants to kill us."

You can check out that speech by clicking below...

There is singing and dancing (all be it wonderfully bad)...

It has the singing bush (minds out of the gutter please people, this site is known for it's classy content)

Oh and here at A&F we are having a major Chevy Chase moment (see previous post for further justification)! His character's name is Dusty Bottoms, as Kate says it is hilarious on so many levels!

So please, do yourselves a favour and watch it ASAP!

The 3 Amigos!???

A long time ago, in the year 1986 there was a song.
A song called "You can call me Al" by Paul Simon.
This song is so fun and catchy, but it's the video I love the most!
The video is amazing for several reasons...
  1. It is simple. There are no special effects. There are no trashy girls in even trashier outfits. It is what it is and I have a lot of time for that.
  2. It's funny. The height difference between Paul Simon and Chevy Chase alone is hilarious.
  3. It has Chevy Chase! He is awesome in it! His miming of the lyrics while Paul Simon mimes the backing vocals is GENIUS! Oh, also he is Dusty Bottoms in The Three Amigos, so I can't not love him.
  4. I love Chevy's Na Na Na solo! It is pure gold.
  5. It's just a really great song.

So here's the link...

Oh an FYI, you may definitely NOT call me Al (I really hate that).

So "You can call me Al"???


The video for the song???

DECISION: SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME! I truly think it is one of the best videos of all time!
