Green Energy Great

I’ve only been in Australia for a few weeks, but already I like a lot of the ways they do things. I like the idea of anyone being able to go to ANY cafe. Back in my home country, there’s a system for cafes and other public eateries so complicated that you can grow up …

Bigger Better Glassier

I’m proud to be part of something so prestigious, but I think we can take this club further. We all came together because we love cats, and when people are bound by a common passion, then they can channel that passion into something great! That line always goes down really well with my audience when …

Even More Boats??

Yep, boats. Golly, Week of Our Lives sure does have a lot of stories about boats. But I went on the forums and asked if anyone had noticed this, and we ended up having a really great discussion that put things into perspective. The sea is a fascinating place, filled with mystery and intrigue, and …

I’m An Adult!

I’ve never really shopped for groceries, but I’m pretty sure I could, if I wanted to. It’s not like I mind going out and doing stuff; I just choose not to. And I could clean, if I wanted to. But if I did that, then my maid would be out of a job. See, I’m …

From A to B

I seriously don’t know why everyone is so obsessed with ratings around here. Yes, you need a certain amount for the TV station to keep making stuff, but really…isn’t that secondary to our main goal of bringing quality programming to Melbourne and beyond? ‘From A to B’ doesn’t get millions of people tuning in, but …

Need More Darkness

Being a goth is hard, man. Doesn’t help that I came way too late to the party, and all the others have moved onto making internet memes and otherwise living normal lives, so specific services have declined. You can maybe find yourself a goth themed night at one of the nightclubs, and clothing is easy; …

Back in My Day

When I was a kid, we didn’t have any fancy indoor play centres. Here in Bundoora, we had to make our own entertainment, which we mostly did by going down to the old logging forest and throwing rocks at the other children. They’d throw rocks at us, and we’d engage in brutal gang warfare that …

Coworking Crazy

I’ve been sceptical of co-working spaces since they started popping up all over town a few years ago. I was like, why would you pay for desk space – in many cases, a hot desk – when you probably have a perfectly good nook at home? Granted, it might be wedged in amongst sundry personal …

Run a Tight Ship

At this point I’m pretty sure the Skimmer’s Digestive is just making things up. Not only do they always choose competition winners who don’t seem like they deserved it, but now their prizes have just gotten a bit strange, like they can’t find any luxury goods companies to partner with and they’re just choosing to …

My Botanical Balcony

I might only have a planter box on the balcony, but that’s not going to stop me from having a beautiful garden. I’m going to be THAT person, the one who looks like they have a whole botanical garden stuffed inside their apartment and it looks like it’s spilling out. People will look upwards and …
