Meet the Downsizers For Brian Stacey and Rodney Smith there are no surprises in the current market trend to downsized homes. Long-time Fasham designer Brian (pictured—striped shirt) and industry veteran Rodney have not just seen this coming, they have for two decades been front and centre in the push for smaller, smarter homes as a wise, environmentally sustainable alternative to the MacMansions of the 90’s and early 2000’s. Fasham design and build individual homes for individual clients. We’ve been doing this for four decades for people at all stages of life, but our core client base has always been the baby boomer generation. And now the baby-boomers are downsizing in droves. If you are about to downsize too, you could do a lot worse than talk to Brian or Rodney. Here’s how it works. First, we suggest, you visit our website (address below) to learn something of our design beliefs. Secondly, visit our current display home (address also below). Whilst this display is a ‘grown-up family’ home we can talk to you about our next display (opening early 2013), which is very definitely a downsizers’ property. If you’re comfortable with what you’ve seen and learned then give us a call, asking for either Brian or Rodney. (At Fasham you talk direct to a designer.) Rodney or Brian will get a sense of what you’re looking for and canvass the possibilities of your land. They’ll discuss your budget too. Rodney and Brian function as a design studio embedded within a building company, which means they’re not guessing at figures—they have a very strong knowledge of construction methodology and costs. They’ll be able to tell you whether your needs can likely be met within your nominated budget or whether some reconsideration—of your brief or your budget—might be required. Depending on your site and your requirements it may be that $380,000 is sufficient, or that $650,000 is not enough. Perhaps you are in the fortunate position of living on land that could be subdivided, giving you the prospect of a new home to sell, and a new home for you. We’re presently designing and building for a number of clients in this position. Why wait another day? If you’re ready to make a move to a smaller, smarter home, why not talk directly to Brian or Rodney, designers for whom downsizing is second nature.

Virginia trioli \ The needs of The few win elecTions

W

elcome to our world, America! As the result in the US presidential election became clear last Wednesday afternoon and as the great divide in American society yawned even wider, one conservative pundit was heard to splutter: “So, does this mean that future elections will just come down to three or four states, with all the money and promises thrown just at them? Is that what we’ve come to?” Well, yes – and as Australia has been in this place for quite some time, there are many voters here who have simply given up on hearing about a national vision and direction from would-be leaders. Instead, we resign ourselves to a campaign blitz of, and reductionist pandering to, just a handful of Queensland, western Sydney and New South Wales seats that now define a general election win. The rest of us hope to pick up some crumbs of inspiration along the way … a forlorn hope. The power of the “swing state” has long been a reality in the US, so I don’t quite know why this Fox News pundit suddenly got up a head of steam about it. Presidents and would-be presidents always spend a disproportionate amount of time in Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Iowa – states that can easily shift a degree

or two and change the course of an election with their valuable electoral college votes. What this US election revealed is that demography is destiny: the huge shifts in the US population – more Hispanic, women and African-American voters, and fewer “angry white men” as the cliché goes – had been better identified and captured by the Democratic party than the Republicans. In Ohio, more than 40 per cent of voters there had signed up after September 1. Win them – win the election. Simple, no? But what, if any, parallel is there in Australia, where voting is compulsory, where “swing” seats are also the prizes for Labor and the Coalition, and where demography doesn’t appear to have changed on that scale – or has it? In Ohio, the talk was all about either coal or cars, the key industries in that place, and that spilled over into the national debate about who was anti-coal and who supported manufacturing jobs better. If you hear echoes of rhetoric about who is pro-mining and who is anti-mining here in Australia, you are not mistaken. The two major parties in Australia now don’t even wait to go into a federal election with a bunch of policies

we welcome your feedback » www.theweeklyreview.com.au/mouthing-off

that are not in the national interest but are believed to be of deep interest to the majority of voters in the swinging seats: those policies now form the permanent platform of Labor and the Coalition. You couldn’t sail a clapped-out fishing skip between the two parties on refugee policy; ditto “economic responsibility” (deficits, bad) and interest rates. The national debate, such as it is, is actually a shout-out to angry voters in disaffected seats, with the rest of us reduced to spectators. That’s what it feels like, conservative Fox guy. But maybe, just maybe, something has shifted here and the pollies are still stuck in their old ways. Is there now an age divide, with more younger voters than old? Is there a gender divide here too, one that is more out in the open following the Prime Minister’s landmark sexism and misogyny speech? This country of ours feels more fragmented and angry than at any other time I can remember, and you can expect the major parties to ruthlessly exploit that. I’m just not sure if that dangerous game will now end in the way that they expect. \

K

ym Jackson might be one of a rare breed in Tinseltown. She’s one of thousands of hopeful actors making a career out of the film and TV industry. And she’s a member of Mensa, the IQ society that only accepts people who score in the 98th percentile or higher of a demanding intelligence test. “I only did the test because I didn’t go to college or university and a friend of mine pulled his master’s degree out of his arse every time we had an argument!” says Jackson, 29. “I got tired of this guy so I snuck off and did the Mensa test. When I got the results I did call them and ask them if they were sure. But the next time that guy and I had an argument, I was like, ‘Boom! You can’t argue with me as much now’. Although I don’t think he believed me initially …” Jackson moves regularly between Australia and Los Angeles, her home since June 2004. She is in Tasmania this month filming a relationship drama called Breeding in Captivity. She plays a lead role opposite Melbourne Theatre Company actor and VCA graduate Christopher Brown (Rush, City Homicide, Blue Heelers). By the time she moved to the US,

cover story

Jackson had been acting for years, although her stage debut at the age of five at Kimberley Park State School in Brisbane didn’t go as she’d planned. “I was the narrator in Peter Pan and I thought I knew all my lines. But there was one point when I didn’t know what I had to say next, and as I ran across the stage to pick up a script I made a bunch of stupid jokes to fill in time,” Jackson says, laughing. “The audience died laughing and that was probably the moment when I became addicted to the stage.” Jackson, who was born in Bath in England but migrated to Queensland with her parents and younger sister when she was four, acted in school and community theatre and studied with acting coaches. At 17, she moved to the Gold Coast and spent three years as a tour guide at Warner Bros. Movie World. “I was very unreliable because every time I got an acting job I bailed,” she says. “Everything was unpaid until finally, in 2000, I did my first paid movie – Scooby-Doo. I got a one-line role – and my line got cut – but they still paid me a fortune. I remember the line,” she says, demonstrating her best teenage American accent. “It was, ‘Freddie, Freddie, over here, can you sign an autograph?’.” Determined to meet the right people and learn as much as she could about the movie industry, in early

“I was only there for four hours but it was a big step for me. Once you get that first network TV credit, agents and managers take you a lot more seriously. Matthew Gray Gubler made the most ridiculous jokes and he and Shemar Moore are besties and the mischief-makers on set.” The Hollywood lifestyle has brought Jackson into close contact with a raft of well-known names and faces. When a friend invited her to the wrap party for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at a Sunset Boulevard club, Jackson was introduced to Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart and Shia LaBeouf. “Then my friend said, ‘I want you to meet Steven’,” recalls Jackson. “On the way across the room I was chatting to a little girl who was one of the producer’s daughters. My friend was standing there with Steven but I said, ‘Could you just give me a second?’ because I didn’t want to be rude to that little girl. And then I turned round and said, ‘Hi, nice to meet you … Steven Spielberg’. But I haven’t met Meryl Streep, Alan Rickman or Michael Caine yet. I’d flip out if I met those guys.” Among the celebrity moments, Jackson has sometimes felt far from home. “There are times when you aren’t getting auditions, but everyone has slow patches – it’s the way the industry is,” she says.

The Hollywood Survival Guide For Aussie Actors by Kym Jackson, Perfect Books, $39.95. 6 The weekly review \ november 14, 2012

2004 Jackson went to the Cannes Film Festival. “I happened to be walking along a street when an awesome car drove past. I commented on the car to nobody in particular and a guy joked back to me. We got talking and I discovered he ran a film production company in LA. “I said I wanted to work in Hollywood and he suggested I work for him,” says Jackson. “But when I returned to Australia, he wouldn’t take my calls. So I rang one day and pretended to be a distributor interested in distributing one of his films. I got through to him and said, ‘Actually it’s Kym Jackson and you promised me a job in Hollywood’.” He told Jackson to write a proposal about why he should hire her. That night, in between working a shift as a “door bitch” at a hotel in Sydney, she wrote up a six-page proposal. By the following week she was in LA. The job came with an apartment and Jackson spent six months as a production assistant at the company before moving on to another production firm. “During that job I lived in the storage room. It was pretty creepy and I shared my home with stacks of paper, green tea and office supplies,” she says, laughing. “I was strapped for cash for a few months until I got a job with another production company working in purchasing and payroll.” Jackson also got a job assisting the casting director on the sequel to Raging Bull and now gets regular casting work, reading for actors auditioning for film and TV roles. She’s since made a point of meeting about 200 casting directors. In 2008 she made her US TV debut in an episode of the crime drama, Criminal Minds.

“You have to know every pilot that is being shot, read those pilot scripts to see what roles you can push for, and you have to stay in touch with everyone you know in the industry so when a project comes along, you are fresh in their mind.” Jackson has survived solely on acting since late 2007 and LA will remain home for another five or six years. She rents an eighth-floor apartment with views of the Capitol Records Building and Griffith Park Observatory. “I have a huge balcony and a couch out there. It’s where I chill out,” she says. She also loves hiking and go-karting and has just enrolled in graffiti classes. “I went on a date the other day and we went zip-lining in Catalina Island – riding a flying fox through the trees,” she says. Later this year Jackson is casting a film in Toronto and, based on her experience in LA, she’s written The Hollywood Survival Guide For Aussie Actors. “I think Aussie actors do well because they work hard and people know they are getting someone who won’t be high maintenance and who won’t moan about the size of their trailer,” says Jackson. She puts her own survival down to working hard and persistence. And has that Mensa membership helped? “It has planted that idea that a lot of the time you can say something is too hard or you can’t do this and that,” she muses. “But now I question that and think, ‘Why can’t I do that?’ I have no excuses now.” \ smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au we welcome your feedback @

Under the radar \ Myke bartlett reviews the latest tOP Pick

film GOD BLESS AMERICA \ Opens November 15, rated MA15+ » www.godblessamericamovie.com

Frank (Joel Murray) is the last sensible man on the planet. Sickened by the cruel, self-obsessed and trivial acts he witnesses from neighbours, colleagues and the television, he goes on a one-man righteous killing spree. Frank isn’t alone for long. His first target is a spoilt star of reality TV and, in dispatching her, he earns the admiration of teenage Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr). Frank might be angry at widespread idiocy, but Roxy is angry at everything. She’s ready to kill people who high five, who prefer Bowie to Alice Cooper, who misuse the term “literally” and, well, pretty much everyone. Through Frank, we’re shown a dumb, ugly and cruel culture, where there’s no point creating anything decent, as nobody cares. Opinions are regurgitated endlessly, because the act of sharing is more important than actually contributing anything new. A central target is American Idol – here rebranded American Superstar – where talentless drones are propelled to stardom because their audience of 32 million doesn’t know any better. It’s as if bad taste transforms into good taste when it reaches a critical mass. In the face of this hideousness, Murray’s left-wing Dirty Harry appears uncomfortably likeable, even when gunning down children. The charismatic Barr manages to make Roxy more than yet another manic pixie dream girl, although her character’s eloquent diatribes are somewhat overwritten. Shocking, funny and packed with biting insight, God Bless America is only let down by a lack of apparent self-awareness. It’s so busy asking us to take a good, hard look at ourselves that it never really stops to probe Frank’s all-American gun obsession. We’re left worried that director Bobcat Goldthwait approves too readily of Frank shooting first and asking questions later. \

music THE DOUBLE LIFE EP \ Bob Evans (EMI) » www.bobevans.com.au After a recent reunion with punky popsters Jebediah, Perth ex-pat Kevin Mitchell has revived his alter-ego Bob Evans, ahead of a new album next year. Here we see Mitchell (or Evans) contemplating the future. First single I Don’t Wanna Grow Up Anymore bemoans the complications and disappointments of adulthood. Just as the sentiment is a common rock-star complaint, there’s a comforting familiarity in its strangely sedate pop. Like angsty teens, Jebediah songs demand the listener’s attention, with Mitchell’s (not Evans’) voice edging from screechy to scratchy. Here, he sounds relaxed and confident, more Elliott Smith than Johnny Rotten. His work is all the better for it. The four tracks here are mature, complex and really rather pretty. Melburnians can catch Mitchell (or Evans) at the Bella Union next Friday, November 23. \

play POMPEII, L.A. \ Malthouse Theatre, November 16-December 9, $41-$58 » www.malthousetheatre.com.au Tracing a child star as his life spirals out of control, this new Australian production is a black comedy poking at the dark side of celebrity. Written by acclaimed young playwright Declan Greene, the play ponders the fates of Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Michael Jackson – those who found fame too young to survive it. Our damaged hero is thrust into a weird purgatory populated by Judy Garland and other former child stars. Featuring some impressive local talent, Pompeii, L.A. promises to provide a bold, memorable end to an excellent season for the Malthouse Theatre. \

New Year’s Eve, 1958, and Miami hotel impresario Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is preparing his luxury venue for an appearance by Frank Sinatra. When the local union threatens a strike as Frank takes to the stage, Ike turns to Chicago mobster Ben Diamond (Danny Huston) to help him out. It’s a decision Ike will, we suspect, spend the next seven episodes regretting. This new US drama series looks and feels like great television. Specifically, it looks and feels like a mix of Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. The ’50s glamour is artfully exaggerated, the gangsters play by old-school rules and the stylised dialogue makes the viewer work to figure out exactly what is going on. It’s all very impressive, if a little empty. The first episode is oddly bereft of surprises, playing out as if it hopes to meet, rather than subvert, any expectations. Nonetheless, the setting is alluring and the characters engaging. It might be worth giving the series time to reveal its promised magic. \

Saints

be praised Festival \ As Melbourne Music Week rock’n’rolls around, the Saints’ frontman Chris Bailey talks about inspiration, longevity and his favourite films. MYKE BARTLETT listens. CHrIs bAIlEy & pEtEr wIlkINsoN

C

hris Bailey is feeling worse for wear. It’s early Saturday morning in Amsterdam and he’s had what he calls a “very traditional” Friday night. Despite that, he’s in surprisingly jolly form. While he insists he is a “miserable, reclusive shit”, there’s no sign of the tortured artist behind the Saints’ 36-year legacy. In fact, Bailey seems to take very little seriously. “I’ve been accused over the years of being a bit flippant about things,” he admits. “A lot of my tunes are horrible, slash-your-wrists dirges, but I don’t think the artist needs to be a miserable pain.” There’s much about Bailey that confounds expectations. Hailing from Brisbane, seminal punk group the Saints are generally thought of as an Australian band, despite first making it big in Britain. Bailey himself was born in Kenya to British parents and, although he moved to Australia as a young boy, he’s never held Australian citizenship. For the past 15 years, he’s lived in Amsterdam, making only the occasional visit to the southern hemisphere. “Australia seems to be a place that we don’t visit as often as we should,” Bailey says. “It is a very long bus ride, but we vow in the future to make up for lost time.” This month, the Saints will be in town promoting their latest album, King of the Sun, and supporting US legends Blondie. Bailey confesses his band isn’t exactly a natural fit with Debbie Harry’s mob. “It’s very, very odd, but I think it echoes those old-school variety tours from the ’60. I’m looking forward to it, as I get in to see Blondie for nothing, which I suppose is a perk.” These nostalgia tours have become big business, I suggest. “Oh dear. I did the nostalgia thing a couple of years back and I kind of enjoyed it. It was as close as I’ll ever

get to being Doctor Who, jumping into the Saints’ TARDIS. But I feel a lot more comfortable cranking out new music.” While in Melbourne, Bailey will also be hosting one of Melbourne Music Week’s Playing Under the Influence sessions, in which musicians talk about taking inspiration from the silver screen. Worried about spoiling things for his session on 1934 classic The Black Cat, Bailey declines to discuss the film. However, he considers himself a surprising choice for the gig. “The only time I really see movies is when I’m on an aeroplane. The reason I like music is that I find it more exciting than cinema. It’s like reading a book; you have to use your imagination.” So he’s not tempted to find a sideline career composing film scores? “I’ve thought about it, but I kind of figure I’m lucky in that, all my adult life I’ve made an occasionally great, occasionally shithouse living. I’m gainfully employed, I should let other people have the luxury of doing that.” He wants to give other people a chance to hog the limelight? “Absolutely.” Bailey listens to himself, and laughs. “Oh, what a wanker I am.” He might enjoy talking himself down, but there’s a real sense that Bailey is grateful to still be doing what he loves. Other Aussie icons have burnt out or faded away, but the Saints have consistently performed and released records for almost four decades. Is he happy to have achieved that kind of longevity? “I seem to know a lot of dead people, but I’m a bit of a happy idiot in that respect, I live in the moment. I get to travel the planet and people occasionally pat me on the head and tell me how clever I am. I’ve never understood people in the arts who whinge.” \ mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

» Melbourne Music Week runs across various venues November 16-24. Playing Under the Influence with Chris Bailey: ACMI, Saturday, November 24, 7pm, $15/$11 Cinemix: Nick Huggins plays I Am Eleven: ACMI, Thursday, November 22, 7pm, $25/$19 http://thatsmelbourne.com.au/Whatson/Music/mmw

Nick Huggins plays I Am Eleven This year’s Melbourne Music Week also sees a screening of acclaimed documentary I Am Eleven, with producer and composer Nick Huggins performing a live version of his score. The score is Huggins’ first attempt at soundtrack work and he says he enjoyed working closely with director Genevieve Bailey. “It’s kind of like an extended version of what I do with music production jobs, where people ask me to help them interpret their songs. In some ways, non-musicians describe what they want better than musicians do, because they talk in abstract, non-musical terms. They say exciting things like ‘I want this to sound like a distorted ice-cream van’.” He says he approached the film believing the best soundtracks are the ones that draw the least attention to themselves. “It should be subliminal. If people don’t notice the music, that’s a success. The challenge is to push them and pull them, but without them noticing.” Although he recorded the soundtrack solo, the live version will see him joined by four local musicians. It’s almost a throwback to the early days of silent cinema, and something Huggins would like to see come back into fashion. “I love that idea, the piano player in the corner. That kind of crossover is really exciting.”

MARGARET FULTON: QUEEN OF THE DESSERT The Margaret Fulton Cookbook revolutionised Australia’s staple of meat and three veg in households across the country. Fulton encouraged mum and dad cooks to experiment with exotic influences, such as Spanish, Italian and Chinese flavours. But we know little about the woman behind the cookbook that sold more than 1.5 million copies. Her Women’s Weekly readership would have been shocked if they had known their favourite columnist was a Communist Party member or had started life in Australia X-raying nuts and bolts at the Munitions Supply Laboratories.

FALLOW: BETWEEN ABANDONMENT AND REBIRTH When the Berlin Wall came down, artists and students began occupying and transforming derelict buildings. In an echo of that, a derelict house scheduled for demolition in St Kilda East has been transformed into an art instillation. The name of the exhibition refers to the fallow period between abandonment and regeneration. The artists have tried to work solely with the contents of the building, from the detritus left by squatters, old furniture and the bricks and mortar of the building itself. ■ 54-56 Chapel Street, St Kilda East.

MARVELLOUS MAKEOVER

\ 14 LYNEDOCH AVENUE, ST KILDA EAST, 3183

D

uring a comprehensive renovation and extension of this 1920s Californian bungalow, just two of the original rooms were left relatively untouched. With high, decorative ceilings, ornate leadlight doors and a marble fireplace, it’s not difficult to see why the current vendors wanted to hold onto the two front rooms, now a lounge and entertainment area. But one look at what they’ve achieved with the rest of the renovations and it’s just as easy to understand why they were prepared to sacrifice other parts of the original house. Hidden Tasmanian oak floorboards were a pleasant surprise for the vendors when they pulled up the old mustard-yellow carpet. Now polished, they gleam throughout much of the ground floor. The back of the house has been opened up entirely, comprising a kitchen, meals and family area beneath high ceilings and feature gossamer-fine lights that appear to be made of spun sugar. The unadorned gas log fireplace is a chic addition to the living area, while CaesarStone and Miele take pride of place in the kitchen and adjacent butler’s pantry.

A sliding door reveals a separate play area, ideal for young kids, as well as their parents, who can simply shut the door on all the mess. More sliding doors lead to the timber deck, ideal for entertaining outdoors. The pool has a children’s play area, before deepening into a 15-metre lap pool, and is surrounded by a veritable forest of greenery, much of it borrowed from the neighbouring gum trees. Four upstairs bedrooms encircle a central landing. The main suite has his-and-hers dressing rooms on either side of its entrance. Sliding windows in the bedroom allow plenty of northern light to flow through, as well as overlooking the back garden. The en suite is almost as big as the bedroom itself, with room for Balinese tiles, a large stone bathtub, a double vanity and the best view in the house – the city skyline. A bit of the old, a lot of the new, and a great position minutes from Carlisle Street was a recipe for contemporary family living with the current vendors. They’ve done the work; now it’s somebody else’s turn to reap the benefits. \ JO DAVY property@theweeklyreview.com.au

Set on a sprawling corner plot, this tuckpointed red-brick Edwardian nestles among perfectly manicured gardens. The leadlight-detailed front door reveals an airy entrance hall, off which sits a grand, formal dining room to your right and north-facing lounge straight ahead, both with decorative ceiling roses and elaborate chandeliers. Thick honey-coloured carpet feels luxurious underfoot and soaring ceilings add to the sense of class. Move along the hallway, through double doors with ornate handles, and a large bedroom on your left also has a ceiling rose, with natural light from a large window overlooking the side yard. A bedroom of a similar size sits across the hall, with a ceramic chandelier and floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes in cream with gold detail. A third bedroom is also generous and currently configured as a study. They share a bright and airy central bathroom that is finished with biscuit-coloured tiles. The formality relaxes in an open-plan family and meals area to the rear of the residence, with a contemporary kitchen configured in a horseshoe layout, offering plenty of bench space. The adjoining laundry has a shower. The backyard features a deep, solar-heated pool and carport with storage facilities. In the same hands for almost 50 years, this is a once-ina-lifetime opportunity to buy something special just across the road from lush Caulfield Park. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

Stainless-steel Omega appliances complete the picture, and a separate laundry has good storage. Direct entry to the double garage is at the foot of the stairs, which leads up to three large bedrooms. The main bedroom is on the north side, with a corner walk-in wardrobe leading through to an en suite with a skylight. The other two bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and share a well-appointed bathroom. The backyard has a raised wooden deck and is treelined, offering privacy. \ STEPHEN A RUSSELL

Behind an unassuming façade hides this striking, architecturally impressive and lightfilled escape. At the front, a bright study, a bathroom and a large bedroom with built-in wardrobes sit off a short hallway with entry to the garage, but it’s only when you turn the corner that you realise the sheer scale of this stunning residence.

A short step down reveals a vast open-plan living space with dark flooring; a huge entertainment unit runs along the one side and a stylish kitchen along the other, with stainlesssteel Smeg oven and cream cabinetry. Patio doors lead to a huge paved courtyard. Upstairs a retreat has a long study desk. The main bedroom has a Narnia-like walk-in wardrobe and stunning en suite beyond.
