No Gangnam Style Repeats in 2013

Psy’s Gangnam Style may be a one hit wonder, but its popularity isn’t tipped to be exceeded any time soon, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au pricing $1.14 that no Youtube video will receive more hits in 2013.

After it became the most watched clip ever on Youtube this week, ‘yes’ has been priced as the outsider at $5.00.

And while it is the most viewed clip, it seems it will take a bit longer to reach the 1 billion viewers mark, priced at $1.45 to do so by 9am on the 30th December or later.

“If Psy has overtaken Justin Beiber on Youtube, honestly who else can stop him?” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
