Ever since I tried to glue my cat to the ceiling when I was six, I knew I was meant to be an artist. I was attempting to fuse the static nature of glue with the fluid, ever-changing nature of the common household cat, and I would’ve gotten away with it too, if it weren’t …

There are many days in video game ‘Over-Botch’ that have ascended to the hall of memes. There was that one April Fool’s Day when they added fall damage for 24 hours. First people jumping off tall things and watching their avatars crumple to the ground and respawn was shocking, and then people started doing it …

I’ve never understood this whole thing of people not getting a certain haircut on the grounds that they “could never pull it off”. It’s just hair, for crying out loud. What’s the worst that could happen? You look slightly different to how people are used to seeing you for all of about five minutes? You’re …

What is an office, these days? That might sound like a simple question at the outset, but think about it. If you’re heading into the workforce now, chances are you’ll never work in a prototypical office environment portrayed as standard in popular media – you know, the whole setup with cubicles and such. According to …

Note to self: you can’t know what people are going through, so try to be less judgemental. I had this minor altercation on the bus today that really drove this home. Basically, I was getting off the bus and this woman pushed past me while I was still coming down the steps, causing me to …

You know, I’m not overly sure that there’s any sort of functioning infrastructure in the West. You know how here in the East of Melbourne, we have structures for things, like how if your electricity is on the blink, you get a professional in to deal with it. Now, I haven’t been to the West, …

I have to admit, I didn’t think any cartoon had the capacity to surprise me anymore. Every single trope has been done, even some that should never have been done (did we really need an entire show dedicated to a group of schoolgirls getting trapped inside Pong?), but now, I really do feel like I’ve seen …

The final season of Fantasy is airing, and… look, it’s fine. It was fine, I should say. I look back at all those watch parties I had in my apartment, all the time I spent on forums discussing how I thought things would, go, arguing about the differences between the show and the original children’s …

Great – now I’m the laughing-stock of the entire Melbourne socialite community. At this point I’m going to have to either create a cure for cancer overnight, or Cynthia Chevrette is going to have to ‘accidentally’ upload another video of her morning jazzercise routine where she’s dancing around with her hairless cat in dinosaur pyjamas. …

There’s nothing funny about cars. They’re maybe the most serious topic in the history of ever, which is why I think it’s a travesty that Mix-Arr made a whole trilogy of movies for kids about them (Automobiles, in case you haven’t seen it) where kids are encouraged to laugh at them. Sure, just ruin cars …
