The Lazy Aussie was at the massive opening for The Shane Warne musical Saturday night, scanning the red (green) carpet for Perth celebrities. (Is Rick Hart really a celebrity?). Unless I missed them, there were two noteable Absentees. Barra and She-Ra. Shame.
Of course Patti Chong was there. No surprise. She would turn up to the opening of a sock drawer, but fashion wise, her outfit was fine. Really. A quite passable floral dress. I was a little disappointed she didn’t have one of the Merry’s costumes on. She did stare at me a lot as if she was sizing me up as a possible Merry’s leather lover. Hard, hard looks. Since I had already been hitting the free piss table, the stares kinda bounced off. Patti, why didn’t you say hello? Why so shy?
I don’t know why I took a shot of Dixie Marshall, as I quite like her, and she’s not a worst in my book, but that bag? With that dress? If Patti is getting the fashion points over you Dixie, then rethink. On the other hand, keep up all the not worst work.
Here I am with an unknown hipster. He’s connected with the pharmaceutical industry. Apparently. In some way.
I am wearing a Ted Baker suit with an ultra fat Canton silk tie, presented to me by the grateful citizens of Guangzhou Prefecture. Really, it was. The knot you ask? A half Schminsor.
I have often wanted to include The Dockers in The Worst of Perth, as you don’t get much worse than those boys stinking up the town for the last decade or so. I haven’t so far because I prefer original photos. Now I’ve got one of Mark Harvey. He was either mumbling “It’s our year man.” or “Get that fucking camera out of my face arsehole!” Possibly the latter.
Unidentified theatre groupies.
And one last shot of Shane Warne Musical star Jolyon James who was superb as John the Indian bookie. This also gives you another view of Patti’s dress. And a spring roll.
What a night!
