You hearing me out there surf trip friends???
That looks very codey and mysterious, doesn’t it? So, I have been tagged to do this by the lovely Sandy Fussell, who will be doing a Where the Magic Happens post later in the year (one that made me teary, no less), but who also does a fantastic wrap up of the weekly web activities of […]
I love the way Rebecca Lim’s mind works. I also love her work ethic. Sixteen books, y’all. Sixteen! And in exactly twelve days time there’ll be one more when Afterlight comes out in Oz. It’s sort of odd to me that despite never having spent any three-dimensional time together, I feel like I know Rebecca really well […]
So, I’m on a movie jag at the moment, and I feel the need to throw this one out there because I’m so perplexed! I cannot understand the wave of bile this film attracted. I didn’t have any expectations, but it’s a shitload better than the trailer suggested it would be. Let’s shortcut the whole thing […]
Ambelin Kwaymullina, author of How Frogmouth Found her Home (one of this household’s favourite picture books of all time) and many other books besides, has written a really insightful, thought provoking, solution-orientated post for Alpha Reader about what publishers can do to increase indigenous voices in literature – here.
Is on SBS On Demand, so you can watch it for free. It’s not perfect, but that made me love it all the more. Thomas Middleditch, as lead, is just charming.

Happy Friday. What a week. In the wake of mine, I wanted to share this song because it’s quietly perfect. I love Van She so much, bought their last LP. And I also love Pizza Guy by Touch Sensitive. Apparently Van She are no more (is this true?? someone tell me no!) so the only thing that makes me feel […]
A friend of mine died. She was too young. My heart is broken for her family, and most of all, broken for her, because she was a wonderful mum, and I can’t take in how hard it would have been for her to say goodbye to her children. I didn’t know what to do, so I went to […]
Okay, so weird random fact that is necessary as set-up: I was the kid who used to shush people during commercial breaks. Always been fascinated by ads. Ads and music video clips. So I wanted to share an ad that’s been on TV lately. For anyone who’s engaged in telling stories, take a look at this. See […]
