Thanks for posting this! It reminds me of Vegas.

Could you possibly cut out Chris? That would make it perfect.

Thanks for that! It made my day. I LOVE "old" Keith.

I wonder what he got Nicole for Christmas? Any guesses?

Imahick said...

Zucchini seeds and a hoe.

timtam said...

I come back to see what's been going on and this is the entry. Well, I hope all of you enjoy living in the past...and the courgettes.

Choice said...

Ah yes, back in 2004 when Keith appeared so much happier.

Wasn't it lovely of him to show the Kidman clan around his hometown of Tennessee just recently. Let us do the same for any of you when visiting South of Sydney:

Shame timtam can't appreciate things from the past. Nice memories are good for the soul.

Thanks UM.

.and the courgettes.

Was this supposed to mean the 'cougarettes?' as in older ladies hitting on younger men? Because if it is. . . .

This "man" is about 2 years younger than I am, therefore, I take offense at the insinuation, and for your information, in the past say, 2 years or so, what I have seen in no way shape or form even remotely makes me attracted to him, sexually or otherwise. As far as I am concerned, he can carry NK's purse until hell freezes over.

I have plenty to keep me happily occupied, both in bed and otherwise. However, his fan base is suffering, not from empty bed syndrome, but empty ipod syndrome, a much larger, and potentially more devastating problem for him, although, I doubt he sees it that way, since he is literally swimming in money now that he has become the chief nanny and bundle carrier for his beloved.

Again, bully for him if he's happy. Stop insulting us. There is no need, we do not do it to you.

I thought courgettes was a vegetable


And for this to be a sarcastic stab at being a "cougar" relationship, Keith wouldnt be the older one, she would.

Sorry hoosier, not following.

maclen said...

"Courgette is the British, and particularly the New Zealand name for zucchinis."

Ha! Well, whatever TT is trying to insinuate between "courgette" and the orb is pretty bizzare...and pretty "freaky deaky" if you ask me! But, to each his/her own...I guess...

urbanfan said...

I think TT is bitter from her own experiences.......so she is taking it out on us.

Or....maybe she hit on Keith and he turned her down, because she couldn't "help" him like Nicole has?

timtam said...

RC, wherever you are, you are correct. The skeptics really are full on with the conspiracy theories. I have never met Keith nor have I been to New Zealand.
I suppose I should have typed "zucchini" instead of "courgette". But having ex-pat parents who are Brits, that is what I instinctively have always called that particular vegetable. It was a reference to imahick's post. I am surprised none of you picked up on that. Perhaps I should have taken a cue from Sonora and RC and not come by during the holiday. The Urbans seem to be enjoying theirs and that is a huge bugbear to many who come here.

Excellent advice given to Mrs Urban today which made me LOL:

Ah yes, the last few remaining kidmaniacs on this blog have now become totally MIA...no doubt the horror and the humiliation of the...total annihilation...the massive failure of not just the film Australia...but at long last the end of any semblance of any hint or whiff of kidman's career. No doubt they've retreated to the warmth and comfort of their little fantasy fansie site...where they can console each other with what little tidbit of positive and reassuring morsals of the "feel good" info that can possibly keep them all from being reduced to the squirming and twitching fetal position. I doubt if any more parsing of "oh the movie will make money once the WW gross is tallied" or "this reviewer liked the movie"...or even the baz's pathetic whining about how the "film scientists" just didnt understand his bloated, mish mash of blaring smoke and mirrors...the subpar CGI... (and I am referring to the CGI in charge of trying to give kidman any remote outwardly signs of facial emoting)... is gonna be enough for the fansie followers to not be totally "enamored" with the state of kidman's...or the orbs for that matter....world right now.

maclen said...

Ah, funny article, choice...it pinpoints the problem with kidman's PR world...

"NICOLE KIDMAN Get over yourself. You say you can't bring your daughter up in Australia because she will be chased by the media? How does Cate Blanchett, just as recognisable and arguably with more talent, do it? Seek her advice. Also remember to turn 30 soon – or your husband will start looking double your age."

..yes...whine about the media being a hinderence to you being able to raise your kid in private.... so then hawk your kid for the paparatz in paris...next she'll begin to whine about how "only" actresses with terrible cosmetic facial procedures are successful in movies...all the while her lips are becoming ever more bloated...

Hi Maclen. I know, that New Years advice was funny. It gives you some idea of how the journalists Down Under feel about her these days.

It's interesting how Hugh Jackman, Toni Collette, Cate Blanchette, Russell Crowe, Eric Bana and Judy Davis all live Down Under. How come they live here comfortably with almost zero hounding from the press. Simple! Because they are not famewhores. They are all more bankable than Nicole too, and they are all respectable human beings.

Nicole has created her own mess here with the Paps from playing games with them for years. The Paps stick together too, and they disliker her after what happened with the court trial two years ago.

She pretends she doesn't want any attention, yet will ring radio stations to let us all know she has arrived, then will ask for privacy in the same sentence. Her parents must be secretly glad she lives millions of miles away.

What's the latest on the Tennessee community? Must be wonderful for them to have such a big Starbucks movie star walking the streets without the Paps bugging her left, right and centre.

notachance said...

"Her parents must be secretly glad she lives millions of miles away."

Actually Choice, I believe it's Keith's parents who are the happy ones. They are at least being left alone to enjoy their other mortal grandchildren on a normal basis. Hers, however, seem quite at home in her pap infused world.

Lisa said...

Why on Earth are the people of Nashville so "welcoming"?? It's as if she is secretly planning on purchasing the entire town!

Since Aus fell through, I wonder if the country artists are still around her neck with approval?

Anyone know what the next step is? I feel very strongly about something but I dont want to mention it here because I want to see if they can come up with it on THEIR OWN!!

"Why on Earth are the people of Nashville so "welcoming"?? It's as if she is secretly planning on purchasing the entire town!"

I surely doubt the whole notion, Lisa, that Nashville is in fact so "welcoming"...the only source of that is kidman herself...in another of her disingenuous magazine interviews... you know, as in the other magazine interview where she claimed she was "completely natural", just no smoking and suntan lotion keeps her face free off all wrinkles and lines...and movement! But no plastic surgery...she may simply be parsing her words here...mentioning plastic "surgery"... for in her own mind what she so clearly and visibibly abuses is botox and lip injections...and THAT is not "surgery!" But that phoniness is so obvious to the movie viewing public...they are not buying it..and they are not buying tickets to her movies...you might think she could get that point...but I doubt it...

maclen said...

...ps...

...on another note on kidman's PR tricks...which she no doubt picked up from cruise...and although cruise used them to extemely successful effect back in the late 80's and throughout the 90's...he's had some problems the past couple of years with his PR...but it seems even about 25yrs later, he's vastly better at it than kidman. Cruise at the moment is on a "rejuvination of image PR tour" and it seems he's doing a pretty good job of it...he's loosened up on talk shows... he's openingly dealing with PR blunders in the past...on oprah, the matt lauer thing. Can you even imaging kidman admitting to perhaps her biggest limitation and critical point of many media and public talk? Of her botox and lip injections? And another example of the contrasts of cruise and kidman's PR... while kidman has made a point of whining about the paps...of calling the Oz radio station to annouce she and her new baby have arrived back to the homeland!...and in the same radio call in...plead for the paps to leave them alone because it scares her little baby...to the tactic that cruise has taken with the paps...and actually stating publicly that he actually loves some of the paps photos of suri cruise, some of which he says are "quite beautiful". Now who do you think the paps will be far more amenable to...the celeb who bashes them, not just figuratively.. but actually and physically...like kidman has...or the celeb who compliments some of their photos? Only seems wise and lucid to not pound your head against a wall of your certain and obvious reality...

maclen sorry to burst your bubble but I have not gone anywhere. Tim tam was just here (hello timtam!) and I suspect sonora is reading and not posting. But it is Christmas for crying out loud so forgive me if I don't post here every day.


And to timtam, someone had said here to you that the they (the skeptics) don't ridicule the supporters. We can all see that's false on many counts. Glad to see you can give as good as you can get. And its very amusing that they didn't get the veggie joke. Hope you are having a festive holiday season down under!

Just as I had posted a month ago, how the post flopping of Australia at the box office had the kidman fansies scurrying for cover in their bunker mentality of warm fuzzy thoughts to block out the no doubt catastraphic trauma of kidman's total collapse... and as I had noted the feverish posting of same said fansies posting 5...6...7 comments a thread, in the desperate heat of trying to salvage or counter the bad buzz of this lame pic Australia in the eyes of the kidman cynics...entire postive reviews....parsing of "weight to ratio"... " excellent per screen average gross" of said lame movie which did not exist...they themselves so lamely and very hilariously, as I posted before....have now suddenly discovered they have lives...which I assume they didnt have when they were posting that 5...6..7 times a thread in defense of the soon to be released lame movie. Now they have no time to partake in defense of the their once glorious and fabulous heroine!...no longer can they stomach making the hideous jumps of logic and reason to claim kidman is such a box office dynamo! That kidman is truly beloved for her strength or dedication to the art of movie making...because it simply does not exist...and no amount of botox, collogen...thong revealing tissue paper gowns...public paparattzi baby hawking or magazine fantasy storytelling is ever going to change that....so climb back into the kangaroo pouch you've kidman fansies and NKUsers are hiding in and try to drown out the metaphorical peals of laughter and catcalls and theater filled hissing and jeering and the crumbling of kidman's movie career...

Hi Maclen, Lisa

Nicole used to love in it in the early days when the Paps would run after Tom and her. She could give them the finger sign and be rude knowing full well it it wasn't for them she wouldn't get her photo published.

Unfortunately, she still thinks the Paps worship her. It was because of Tom that they were interested. I don't think being married to Keith Urban is going to generate the same sort of heat for her with the world media. Still, she will try (eg. phoning radio stations).

She claims she can walk the streets of Nashville without being hassled. Does that mean when she needs photos taken she just rings up the Nashville Times? Like at Christmas time when the clan hit the pavement?

PS. Come home Nicole, all is forgiven by the Indigenous community. Christmas is a time for forgiveness

maclen said...

Exactly right, choice...in the build up to the overhype of the movie...kidman was a virtual aussie loving dynamo...back to oz to marry the aussie...selling her previous Oz places and buying another Oz place just to get it into the media's news cycles...only now to learn it will be smack dab in eyesight of an apartment complex...and so conviently will probably not ever live there... proclaiming the waters of Oz to be magical fertility baths...to nicely tie into her "cinematic soulmates" $50 million tourism board campaign..."Come to OZ and swim in the fertile waters of dreams"...ride into her homeland on her "Aussie royal baby PR sideshow and tour"...and calling into radio to immediately announce it...and now that the Oz film is a total bust...she's now hunkering down in tennessee with her family with the "dreaded" paps coverage she claims she can no longer tolerate in Oz..how soon they forget...

biteme said...

Thank you Urban Myths for that. Nice to remember the old Keith!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone here! I so enjoy the comments from everyone.
