  • Tue, 27 Jul 2021 17:30:41 +0000: Vagina tunnels and sneaker closets: the escapist appeal of celebrity house tours - Internet | The Guardian

    In new column Internet wormhole, Guardian Australia writers take you to their favourite corner of the web. First up: an inviting – and voyeuristic – YouTube series

    Looking back to early pandemic times, it was probably Architectural Digest’s video tour of Dakota Johnson’s Hollywood home that nudged me down the YouTube hole of celebrity house tours.

    Like many millennials my Instagram feed is at any given moment peppered with aspirational content from sites like The Design Files and a stream of homogenous pastel-hued influencers. But sitting housebound with my partner and cat in our rented, single bedroom flat, the Fifty Shades of Grey star’s whimsical tour of her tastefully decorated mid century Hollywood home and kitchen stocked with unreasonable quantities of limes (“I love limes, they’re great and I like to present them like this in my house,” she explained) offered a welcome hit of late night escapism from the more foreboding stuff unfolding across the internet in March 2020.

    The coach pumped the air, ripped off his mask and hip-thrusted a railing to become an instant meme among Tokyo Olympics viewers

    There are ways to celebrate and then there is Dean Boxall’s way to celebrate.

    From his position above the pool, penned in behind a railing, the swimming coach of newly crowned Australian Olympic champion Ariarne Titmus set the internet alight on Monday with a frenzied celebration in Tokyo.

    Ariarne’s coach Dean Boxall sums it up perfectly! #TokyoTogether

    Ariarne Titmus’ coach’s reaction after she won gold in the 400 metres - instantly iconic

    If my coach doesn't react like this when I have a big win then i don't want it

    DEAN BOXALL IS ALL OF US!!!! YES ARNIE!!! Staring down the and WINNING!!! #Tokyo2020

    the Dean Boxall moment was almost designed to go viral. i’d never heard of him before but pretty confident he’ll now never have to buy himself a beer ever again. how good #Tokyo2020

    Bloody hell is this Aussie behaviour. Straight to the Brisbane 2032 vision board.

    It’s not the quantity of spectators. It’s the quality…

    I hope you all have someone who cheers for you like this guy does #OlympicGames #olympicspirit

    Just want to watch a video of Australia swim coach Dean Boxall losing his mind, while a somewhat terrified #Olympics staffer tries to calm/redirect him, on a loop forever.

    Congrats to Titmus' coach for earning meme of the week status

    Defamation law changes mean complainants must demonstrate serious harm has been suffered as a result of comments

    It was a moment of frustration for Jaimyn Mayer in February 2019 that led to a year of legal woes. The 23-year-old from Brisbane had been helping his mother in a long fight against a secondhand car dealer over a car she had bought from them for $24,000 in 2017. Nyst Legal had been acting for the car dealer.

    Mayer left a one-star review on Nyst Legal’s Google page. There was no text to the review, and he did it under his own name, despite never having been a customer of Nyst Legal, as he acknowledged.

They included products with intact packaging that had not passed their best-before date, according to the video recordings obtained by ITV News and the Times newspaper.
