@margo,
Just to rock the boat a bit, as an outsider with an appreciation for the Auzzie bunch...

The Muzik Mafia.

Nice to meet you Mr Hanger....


Back atcha, Mr. Stillwater. So, yer an Aussie, ay? I enjoyed the movie version of Priscilla QOTD. This purple-shirted American revue is a Humorless version of Priscilla. Shooowee, that's what makes it country-- see how serious they take them selves?

As for the Shep Wooley song , thank you very much, once that song gets into your head it takes weeks to forget it. Here in the US of A we call it Ear Worms.

@Mr Stillwater,
Here's a title for a CW song: If The Phone Don't Ring you Know It's Me.

For a blokey, rough-as-guts nation as ours we do love camp!

Oops, what a drag … Anita Curtain takes a tumble during her audition for a part in the musical of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Quote:
The musical, taken from the 1994 Stephan Elliott film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, tells the story of drag queens travelling through the Australian desert to put on a cabaret show. Working beside Phillips is the costume designer Lizzy Gardiner, who won an Oscar for her work on Elliott's film, the Tony Award-winning production designer Brian Thomson and the seasoned choreographer Ross Coleman. Priscilla opens on at the Lyric Theatre at Sydney's Star City casino on October 7.

The studio buzzed into life when the drag queens sauntered in from the harsh sunshine. To a blaring disco track, Freeda Corset swooped about in red sequins. Portia Turbo sashayed and sang along, while the frighteningly tall Verushka Darling primped across the floor in a one-legged leopard-print leotard. Outside, the drag queens were forthcoming about everything.

So what did they wear beneath all that clinging lycra to ensure shapely curves?

"Well, I just pinch my cheeks and walk out the door," Darling purred, but Turbo had the final word.

"But you can't see them because she's wearing clothes."

Its true. The best bits of 'Priscilla QOTD' where when they get out to those isolated mining towns and the locals don't bat an eye (tho some-one does deface the bus, probably the local branch of the Festival of Light).

I used to drink with a friend at the 'Bottoms Up Bar' at the Rex Hotel in Sydney's Kings Cross. Queer as ****, my friend. But... next door was a sub-branch of the ex-servicemans association... I used the toilets there, didn't really want to see what goes on in a gay-bar toilet... in theory, the old diggers should have been turning up to bash the pooftahs on a regular basis... should have also had the coppers turning up to close the place down as well*... never happened. Amazing.

*actually, we all found out in the 1980s that there were certain 'arrangements' between the local licensing coppers and bar owners that sort of precluded such events

I'd think that'd have something to do with proximity. After being around them they probably took some of the boredom out of their day.

Although this is another reference to the fictional Pricsilla-- I seem to recall one of the most macho men in the movie was attracted to one of the more glam men who cross-dressed.

Well, he wasn't cross-dressed , the implication was that 'he' had gone all the way...

..the gent's missus was the friendly lass who could do the thing with the ping-pong balls! Christ! Offensive, but piss-wettingly funny......

You're correct, I saw the movie a long time ago. My point being, the big macho guy was with the now lady who used to be a guy and the macho guy knew she used to be a guy, etc.

That big macho guy was also in Strictly Ballroom, but I can't remember the role he played because I saw that a long time ago, too. Another piss-wettingly enjoyable Austalian movie as well.

@Cliff Hanger,
The gent is Bill Hunter. He's a regular fixture in Aussie films - the other time you would have seen him is in Muriel's Wedding as the father:

In Strictly Ballroom, the character was the President of the Dancing Club, who told everyone that 'there are NO new moves".

@Mr Stillwater,
Where can I download "I want a beer as cold as my ex-wife's heart". Who sang it and is it on any album?

Thanks
