I don’t ever wanna stop, I’m gonna give it all I've got

Our Princess Kylie and singing stud-muffin Jake Shears - two of our all-time faves here at Dolores Delargo Towers...

Miss Minogue is all over the news at the moment with a round of interviews to promote her new album Golden, and from it, here is the Dolly Parton-esque new single Dancing!

By contrast, released last autumn - accompanied a rather fab personal message for his fans - darling Jake's new choon Creep City never got the limelight he so richly deserves. Coincidentally, Mr Shears recently found out he is related to Dolly....

In this life, all roads inevitably lead to Miss Parton, it seems.

Como si fuera esta noche la última vez

Another weekend looms - and it's just one week to go before we wave bye-bye to this place and "hello" to Dolores Delargo Towers #4...


To ease ourselves into "le weekend" - and to the prospect of spending it dismantling our extensive gardens, as well as continuing the perpetual task of clearing, boxing and generally sorting out our worldly goods - who better to lift our spirits than our beloved Gallic Patron Saint Mlle Dalida [who would have celebrated her 85th birthday on Thursday this week!] - and her inimitable disco update of Bésame Mucho..?

Merci Disco C'est Vendredi!

Dalida (born Iolanda Cristina Gigliotti, 17th January 1933 – 3rd May 1987)

What it don't get I can't use

I've been at a long meeting today - in the glorious surroundings of The Bank of England, no less!

Didn't see any of the fabled "pink penguins", however; more's the pity...

All day, as we sat above vaults containing more than £100 billion worth of gold, a certain number was playing in my head. Take it away, Miss Evans-Stickland!

That's what I want.

It's Betty White Day!

Gawd bless ya, Ma'am!

When using strong chemicals to do the cleaning, always ensure you wear stout gloves.

Thus endeth the lesson for today.

Another of my namesakes is gone

Very sad news - and quite a shock! One of the most distinctive - and one of my fave - vocalists of the modern pop era, Miss Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries is dead, aged just 46.

And oh, my dreams,
It's never quite as it seems,
'Cause you're a dream to me,
Dream to me.

RIP, Dolores. We'll miss ya.

Down boy

Groan. I am aching in places where I didn't even realise I had places - after a busy weekend of scrubbing, sorting, boxing-up, and making a start on clearing out the excess stuff in the extensive gardens here at Dolores Delargo Towers.

Now, as we awake in the darkness, it is pissing with rain, which makes getting up for work just that little bit more joyful. Sigh.

Never mind, eh? - on this Tacky Music ("Blue") Monday, let's cheer ourselves up with dear Betty Grable, living out every gay boy's fantasies (dressing outrageously, behaving even more so), as she dreams of "A dozen husbands":

Note to self: must get my hair done like that for our housewarming party.
