Two wogs walk out of a strip joint…

Shooting Stars

Warning: This is yet another contribution to the interwebs meme involving the ‘Chk-Chk BOOM’ chick; if you’re sick to death of hearing about it and her, skip down to William M. Castleman’s truly beautiful clip of the Milky Way captured above Texas. Otherwise, read on.


Just as people were amassing number one hits on YouTube for their ‘Chk-Chk BOOM’  remixes, and the alleged ‘skinnier wog’ victim of the Kings Cross shooting, Justin Kallu, was speaking out against new internet celebrity Clare Werbeloff for getting all the attention with her ‘fat wog/skinnier wog’ routine while he was the one getting caps busted in his ass, it turns out the eyewitness account of Swanny’s mate was all a figment of her chemically enhanced imagination.

Still, her ability to sniff out a camera and perform in front of it should stand her in good stead – she’s as good as any other media poppet thrust undeservingly into the limelight. Although, should she land a media job as a result of this escapade and subsequent interview on A Current Affair or the like, chances are she’ll just as likely lose it years from now after a footy team breaks down on Four Corners and tells how she forcibly had sex with them in a hotel room and didn't even have the decency to hug them and put them in a cab afterwards. (This isn’t a value judgement; I’m just saying, even if she can rise to a challenge as readily as she appears capable, there’s still the fickle nature of celebrity in the modern age to contend with.)

Meanwhile, here is an EP’s worth of those remixes proving so popular on YouTube, to download and burn for your own entertainment. I would have gone to the trouble of mocking up a ‘cover’ but there’s hardly any point now.

And finally, as a reward for having come this far, my favourite clip at the moment – the one that does the title ‘Shooting Stars’ the most justice – is William M. Castleman’s footage of the galactic centre of the Milky Way rising over Texas:

Oh, but why end it here?

Here’s one final ‘clip’ – the song ‘Calling Occupants’. You might know it by The Carpenters, but the original version was by a Canadian band called Klaatu whose self-titled album appeared on the Capitol label in the US in 1976. ‘Klaatu’ is a reference to The Day The Earth Stood Still, which Ringo Starr happened to reference in the cover artwork and advertising of his 1974 album Goodnight Vienna. That, and the fact that the Beatles as a group and as solo artists were signed to Capitol in the US led people to suspect the anonymous Canadian band Klaatu was in fact the Beatles recording under a pseudonym. It wasn’t.

Klaatu barada nikto!
