How good is Australia? Seriously. Sometime I think I get too carried with American and European nostalgia I forget about our own home-grown heroes. The style legends, the cult followed TV shows, the music, the bands, the romances.
Kylie Minogue and Michael Hutchence were like our version of Kate and Johnny. Silverchair our Nirvana, Olivia NJ our Farrah Fawcett.
We had hard-core rockers like ACDC who's pants stuffing could rival Led Zeppelin. We had Nick Cave.
Remember when Sarah Murdoch was Sarah O'Hare? Remember Nicole Kidman's ginger fro? Remember Cate Blanchett's shaved head? (No? Me neither.)
We had Aussie babes like Natalie Imbruglia, Rose Bryne and the amazingness of Heath Ledger. We had Looking for Alibrandi, Candy, BMX Bandits, Heartbeark Kid and (let us never forget) High School High, Drazic and Anita.
Let's start getting patriotic guys, because-- not to brag-- we're pretty bloody awesome.
