Joy Division? Shit. The Beatles? Shit. Radiohead? Shit. They’re all shit. There are times in life when you must stand up for what you believe in. Now is one such a time. I fight for the redemption of music. I fight for Robbie Williams. Yes, I’m out, and I’m proud. Ever since Robbie Williams ripped […]

When I was 11 I was pissed off. Riled up, red in the face, cheated and angry. I had spent months upon months of going on anti-Genetic Engineering marches; pasting stickers and posters reading ‘GE Free NZ’ everywhere; persuading my parents to shop religiously with the GE Free shopping guide—not to mention risking social exclusion […]

As someone who listened to radio once, I know that roughly 99 per cent of music is terrible. Seriously, there’s so much shit music out there that whenever I happen to be in a situation where music is playing, I feel like a newly hatched coprophiliac maggot who is ashamed of what he has just […]

First, a caveat: I don’t claim to be a decent human being. I am a Media Studies major. I text in all caps. Just last week, in fact, I set my hair on fire. But even in the face of these grave character flaws, I strive to be rational, a trait that is not prized […]

Most people, if posed the question, would no doubt hesitate and consider the question for a few […]

At Victoria University today, one of the consequences of pandering to the bigotry of left-wing cognitive dissonance is the rise of anti-Semitism. The whole world knows there could have been a peaceful settlement many times in the Middle East but for the incompetent and corrupt Palestinian leadership which now, in Gaza, is the terrorist faction […]

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I have a lot of opinions. A lot. A looooot. I think that bread is a savoury food and should never, ever be eaten with jam. Or honey. Or marmalade. I think that Six Feet Under is the best television show of all time. I think that celery […]

A few years ago, I went through a pretty nasty breakup. It started out civil. A clean split. No hard feelings. We had grown apart. I just didn’t see the world the way he did anymore. Slowly, life resumed normality and I went about it alone. It was okay, at first. Liberating, even. Then the […]
