Actress Emily Blunt is such a big fan of Stephen Colbert pretending to vomit that he lined up a little treat for her appearance on The Late Show this week. The two performed the last two lines from the 1939 classic Gone With the Wind, all while trying their darnedest not to retch. It's hilarious, as long as you're not the kind of person who will throw up simply at the sight of someone else trying not to throw up. If you're that person, don't watch this video. Everyone else, this is the best.
In an Australian first, an Indigenous woman has been selected to represent the Northern Territory at the Miss World Australia national final in Melbourne.

Darwin Pride Festival is celebrating 30 years of Pride.
In 1985, a group of passionate Darwinites came together to create the very first Darwin Pride Festival - promoting diversity, equality and celebrating LGBTIQ communities. These brave individuals shined the spotlight on issues that needed to change and celebrated what already made us shine. Three decades on, we're continuing what they began!
We’re excited to bring to you a week long program that is as impressive and vibrant as the campest of tropical rainbows- paying tribute to our past, present and future. The first Darwin Pride event 30 years ago was a film night. To pay homage to its beginnings, the Festival will officially kick off with a colourful “Festival Launch” party and “Pride Film Night” (Sep 30th), showcasing a diverse range of LGBTIQ stories on the big screen. The week that follows includes a smooth sailing Love Boat cruise, History Walk, Trivia Night, Funday, Forum and so much more! Check out "events" for the full program. Be part of history- be part of the 2015 Darwin Pride Festival, celebrating 30 years of Pride!

The APIA Good Times tours rolled into Darwin on Wednesday night (19/5/16) and midway through the show most of the sold-out audience at the Darwin Entertainment Centre were on their feet dancing.
Kicking off the night, John Paul Young, backed by an excellent 6-piece band, took us back to the 70's with hits like 'Keep on Smilin', 'Pasadena', 'Standing in the Rain' and his version of the Flash & the Pan hit 'Down Amoung The Dead Men'.
Kate Ceberano followed. Kate is celebrating because her 53-track Anthology set entered the ARIA Top Ten chart this week. As the youngest member of the four (she's 49) she entertained the crowd with songs from her vast back catalogue. Kate took to the keyboards at one stage for a beautiful rendition of the Roberta Flack song 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face'.
After Intermission, enter Daryl Braithwaite who also had reason to celebrate. It was the eve of the 25th Anniversary since 'The Horses' was released and by the crowd's reaction you'd think it was the No.1 song currently on the charts. Raising his microphone to the audience Daryl could've sipped a cup of tea and eaten a biscuit as the audience took over the singing duties. This was a fun night.
The last of our musical guests had the women swooning and the men wishing they were him. Jon Stevens (in black) shook the foundations of the Entertainment Centre as the band had to raise the bar, and volume, and crank out the sharp back catalogue of Noiseworks. 'No Lies', 'Take Me Back' and 'Hot Chilli Woman' were all greeted like long lost anthems that were ressurected especially for us on this night.
After such a rocking set it was Kate Ceberano's return to Jesus Christ Superstar's 'Everything's Alright' that had John Paul Young, Daryl Braithwaite and Jon Stevens join her. Everyone took turns pumping out hit after hit as everyone remained on their feet dancing.
This was the first date of the Apia Good Times tour with these four performers. Don't miss it when it rolls into your town.

Hello everyone, my name is Jaxon Joseph Taylor and I was born on September 29th, 2014 with a very rare disease called Congenital Melanocytic Nevus (CMN).
My mother (Alycia) had a healthy, ‘textbook’ pregnancy and delivery, but as soon as I was born my father (Clint) and mother immediately knew something was wrong.
The paediatrician swiftly removed me away from my parents to perform a blood test. At first the medical staff thought I was severely bruised. In the words of my Obstetrician who had been delivering babies for decades, he was “baffled”. This was a particularly scary and emotional time in hospital for my first time parents.
No-one knew what was going on, and based on speculation from nurses, my parents resorted to accessing the internet, which overwhelmed them even more!
It would be three long weeks before we could see a specialist, and to my mother and father this felt like torture, not knowing what I had.
This resulted in my parents spending their days crying and fearing the worst, instead of enjoying their time with me. Their world had been turned upside down.
Eventually I was finally diagnosed with a Giant Congenital Melanocytic Nevus, the type I have is called a ‘Bathing Trunk’. This conditions puts me at risk of melanoma, which when contracted, is generally difficult to treat and can be quite aggressive. We also learnt that beneath my Nevus, which takes up a significant area of my body, including almost my entire back, I have no sweat glands, no oil glands and no fat. My skin is extremely frail and sensitive. My parents want the best for me and are trying to make my life more comfortable in the years ahead, from a medical, psychological and
visual perspective. After great research and seeking professional medical guidance, a decision has been made to do a partial removal of my Nevus. Unfortunately it’s impossible to remove the entire nevus, but it’s the best that can be done for now. This comes at a price of many extensive surgeries which can also have complications, as well as the financial worries of how we are going to cover these important expenses.
My parents desire to tell my story to share the CMN awareness to doctors, midwives and general public in order to avoid unnecessary stress and strain on future CMN parents and newborns.
My Granddad, John, is going to undertake the ‘World’s Longest Ever Triathlon’, October 5th to 26th, 2015, in which he will swim 3.9 kilometres in Darwin, run 320 kilometres from Darwin to Katherine
and cycle 1,176.1 kilometres to Alice Springs. This proposed world record will highlight CMN awareness and will hopefully raise sufficient funds to pay for my operations, medical bills, with any funds left over
going towards supporting Nevus Australia for much needed Nevus research.
