FUN NEWS

*Interview* with Taika Waititi

What’s the best part of your job?

I have 52K+ Twitter followers, I’m more popular than Regina George.

What’s the worst part of your job?

People always try talk to me when I go to the Aro Valley bakery for a custard square.

Kendrick or Kanye?

Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. So many bangers.

Who’s the best person in New Zealand?

Michael Murphy (runner-up in the first ever NZ Idol). Ben Lummis is my nemesis.

What is the best movie in the world?

It’s not a movie but I love the Big Save furniture ads. Lily is a great actress and I hope one day she’ll work with me.

Going Up

 

  • Instagram account @tasteofstreep—go on, you know you want to.
  • MASSIVE called Salient cowards in Vice. Sorry for being badass and cool.
  • Gelato.
  • Gloria Steinem is coming to New Zealand.
  • Autumnal produce.

 

Going down

  • Mouldy bread.
  • Getting mud on your good Nikes.
  • Easter Egg-induced breakouts.
  • Sleeping on a mostly deflated air bed.
  • Flashmobs.

  • It’s only taken 50 years, but a male contraceptive pill is on the horizon. It’s still a wee way off, but researchers at the University of Minnesota have found a non-hormonal method that appears more promising than any previous attempts. It is however still in development stages with possible side-effects being a major concern. Sigh.
