Smash palace

 Charlie........

Dropped by White Rabbit Gallery on the weekend to see 'Smash Palace'......fantastic..... thought provoking art works by leading contemporary Chinese artists exploring the human condition, our relationship to each other and the world around us....... it totally kills the disappointing works by contemporary A-Australian artist at the AGNSW  ...'We used to talk about love/Balnaves contemporary: photomedia'. It is as though they have all lobotomised the human condition .... with a jumble of emotionless collaged notes.
had a peep of the Archie......Go 'Burgs'.

Bubba Ho-tep


Charles.........

Grade two or there about..... back in the 70's. There I am laying down looking at the ceiling, Dad's playing Elvis on the stereo and popping a hip move. I think yea,  Elvis is the 'King'. Then a question to myself, who will be the King when Elvis dies? 

At school..... sitting at my desk watching my grubby finger looking back at me with a bit of my brain hanging on it..... I think 'my brain looks green'.  I stop looking at my brain running down my finger, there is a kid standing in front of the class squashed up on the black board, his face is hovering in a painful red orb and he's........he's crying.......he is trying to talk.....he spits out the words........'Elvis is DEAD'...........'Elvis has DIED'.

Forty years later  I discover the truth......Elvis is not dead...... he is a zombie slayer.........YEA..........'Bubba Ho-tep' the movie, it's all there, Yea.
