Tristan + Isolde

There’s just something about tragic love stories that I find absolutely delicious. The harrowing tales of couples who find their only love, then are separated unjustly by death or some other horrible divide… Tristan + Isolde is no exception. This tale of love does sound cheesy, but if any of you have ever fallen in [...]

In this current age of independent filmmaking it seems that ‘quirk’ has become the new cool. Gone are the ‘girl and the gun’ aesthetics that populated the Tarantino nineties. We’re at a stage where films like Garden State and Napoleon Dynamite are the most quoted films amongst teenagers. Now, I don’t really like those two [...]

Dark, sparse and chilling. There’s something intriguing in the way contemporary New Zealand literature revels in societal unease; the way it rejects the ‘land of milk and honey’ illusion and, instead, delves into the tension, violence and horror of the suppressed. Chad Taylor’s Departure Lounge thrives on this unease. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to [...]

To pretty much steal the blurb from the back of this very nicely designed book: these poems were written or re-tuned during James Brown’s year as Writer in Residence at Victoria’s own International Institute of Modern Letters. The title alludes to his having biked to work every day of that year. Share on Facebook+1 on [...]

The Book of Kells Folio 29r, part of the introduction to the Gospel of Matthew Late 8th to early 9th century. The Book of Kells (which is named after the Southern Irish monastery which owned it) is a truly amazing piece of art and craftsmanship.
