Best On Show

Now that we're galloping through October at a rate of knots, it would appear that Spring Racing Season is almost upon us. I personally am not a fan of attending the races because it's the same shit every year, and also I feel bad for the horses. However, in the past I did attend my fair share of...

Taking The Mickey

By Geisha Bar

It's funny that old white men who no longer play or coach sports think that their input on current sports is important. Mick Malthouse, who firmly believes that Aussie rules is a "man's game", is the latest dickhead to try and throw in their 2c to complain about women playing the sport. Malthouse...

You may have looked at an octopus and thought to yourself, "this has got to be the most ALIEN thing on our planet." And you'd be right – the octopus is an incredibly fascinating, highly intelligent creature that is about as far from human as you can get on Earth. Our lineages are separated by...

How many of you take selfies at the gym? When I'm scrolling Insta or Facebook, I'm seeing a stream of gym selfies, to the point that I often wonder, "if you didn't take a selfie does the exercise even count?" I get it, it's nice to have people validate you online for your healthy choices, and it's...

Now that spring is here, it's time to start thinking about rejuvenation. Rebirth. Reinvention, even. As I looked into the mirror this morning, I felt … kinda old looking. At almost 26, I've gotten myself a few grey hairs and some smile lines are starting to make an appearance on my formerly...

Chilling Out

There's something so magical about living in the city. I have a second-floor corner bedroom which overlooks the lights of the city and there's just something about looking out across that endless field of fairy lights that calms me. When I get home at 4am and I've been buzzing away playing Madame...

Play This

This weekend I DJed a gig (not a big event or anything, just helping out a friend who runs events at uni). As someone who has never experienced a night as a DJ to a crowd, I had my eyes opened to what DJs have to deal with on a regular basis – and it's not pretty! I had phones held up to me...

On Saturday the 11th, the State Government enforced a new policy on pop-up bars, restricting them to three weeks of operations, with the exception of "exceptional" cases. The policy also states that the pop-up bars need to be related to a specific "bona fide" event. Some are understandably a bit...

Dive In

When was the last time you felt out of your depth? For me as a uni student, it’s … well, pretty often, actually. I find that when I’m sitting in a lecture learning something, I can sometimes get a little bewildered. ‘Holy shit,’ I think to myself. ‘Is everyone else just casually...
