7 Shouts: strange tales from the newspaper column My Shout
A comic cosmic journey from the edge of the city into the heartland of the metropolis passing through the mullet festival, the school fete and the rural show.
7 Shouts is based on 11 years of award-winning Australian newspaper columns.
Journalist Bernie Dowling and his readers embrace and defy physical prescriptions such as the Russell Crowe Law of Fame and the Barack Obama Version of Australian Slang.
Before their eyes leap cultural icons such as the french poodles Fi Fi and Fa Fa which enter the sheep-dog trials and the impoverished teenager trying to win a date with pop singer Delta Goodrem.
OIympic athletes, US president Obama , deposed and re-instated Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd greet the reader along the track with strange detours to solve historical mysteries.
Signposts along the way are unusual photos, weird facts and links to crazy songs.
7 Shouts is a classic contemporary doco of a world gone mad, but still a heap of fun.
