Prominent Australian entertainer arrested in UK on sex charges.

They can't give the name until he's been formally charged.

Rolf Harris is an Australian icon.

And was a beloved childrens entertainer in my youth.

Sadly this does not surprise me.
More than meets the eye!

What a shame.

I'm sure that there would be a lot of surprises from American soil, if the wraps ever get removed.

i used to watch him in the UK when i was in my teens. one thing i always loved that he did was these great paintings - really fast on huge surfaces with a big house-paint brush, accompanied by music. it would look like jsut a bunch of random abstract splotches and you wouldn't know what it was until the last minute - and then he'd add a detail or turn it sideways or upside-down and it would all make sense.

this makes me sad. and retro-actively triggered - if that makes sense. like someone i knew and trusted and that didn't harm me - but to find out after the fact that he wasn't as safe and good as i thought. a close call sort of feeling - i've had a couple of those in real life.
As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
