Editorial 19: NZFW Media Has Become Critical — And I Love It

Jess Wilson |    New Zealand Fashion Week shined its pretty head just over a week ago. After completely ignoring it for that past few years, I’m starting to like it again. When I was a fashion blogger, I never ignored NZFW. I remember, six years ago, sitting at the dinner table at 9pm anxiously… Read more »

Blind Date: The One Where He Went Home With Someone Else

His favourite movie is The Intouchables. She replied to all our emails in Comic Sans. The last “book” she “red” was Nexus. He knows all the words to Wake Me Up by Avicii. She knows all the words to Trumpets by Jason Derulo and any Bruno Mars song. We put them on a date where… Read more »

Carnage: Politics, Weird Shit That No One Gets

Jules Craft |  “Granted politics are boring as fuck but this is only because we don’t vote.”  Politics is out of it, and so damn unappealing. You know what is a real pity though?

Aunty Slut: Opps! I Had Sex With a Tutor

” …you do not want to be known as the person who fucked themselves into an ‘A’…”  Dear Aunty Slut,  I got really wasted last week and went home with what I thought was a random. I don’t remember much except that the sex was pretty good considering how drunk we were. But I went… Read more »

A Fashionable Lifestyle: Liquid Eyeliner Reviews

Jessica Wilson |  “This liner is no-bullshit, industrial strength.” Applying liquid eyeliner needn’t take years to master. A good liquid eyeliner can be applied quickly and easily.

    The Cinema Cash Cow Conundrum

    Jared Wooldridge |  “…it’s getting harder and harder to defend Transformers as nothing more than Michael Bay printing his own money from explosions and models…” Is Hollywood creatively bankrupt?

    Editorial 18: Being Jess Malkovich

    Like most people, I have a rich history of watching films. From humble beginnings hiring the latest Adam Sandler movie at the Cambridge United Video, to hiring the latest Scary Movie at the Hillcrest Video Ezy, to today, semi-illegally downloading every movie I’m vaguely interested in — but only watching one in five of them….
