Well, the other shoe has dropped, somehow finding the bare feet of Mark Latham. It was a night to remember, and immediately forget.
So there we have it. George Pell will indeed spend a chunk of his remaining life in prison. But to those who feel it should have been longer, or that justice was not done, I suggest that we focus on what is truly important.
Yesterday, we laughed off Mark Latham’s suggestion that seemed very much like eugenics. The problem is that similar legislation has been successfully tabled in the past, sponsored by Australia’s elite.
The rules of grammar are rules for a reason. They shall not be broken, lest the breakee suffer endless harassment from Nazi types. You know what? Screw that.
Last week brought us the Momo Challenge and the girth of internet criticism that followed. Which is entirely the point, Momo isn’t targeting our kids, it is targeting us.
Outstanding news for gamers everywhere, as the remaster of ‘Modern Warfare 2’ seems to be going ahead. There is a catch, though.
Last night, both Andrew Bolt and Miranda Devine chose personal opinion over evidence and the ruling of a court. In my personal opinion, both should be held responsible.
Yesterday a win was registered by those on Manus Island, but the margin of the vote should be a matter of discussion.
Last night, Novak Djokovic was asked to share what Australian slang he knew. The answer revealed something telling about Australian tennis.
Scott Morrison commanding our councils to enforce January 26 is indicative of the culture war economy that powers us.
The death of 100,000 fish in the Murray-Darling Basin was blamed on low water levels, but the question of who turned off the tap needs to be asked.
Today is the 21st of December, the setting of the greatest Christmas song ever produced. Paul Kelly’s ‘How to make gravy’ should be on endless repeat today, because it is honest, it is real, and it is very much us.
Today, the A-League settled on which clubs will be joining them. The decisions they made were not based on football, or business. Bitterly, this is the same behaviour that sunk the NSL.
Growing up, Ernest Hemingway was a hero of mine. While I’ve moved on, I believe he’s a necessary ex to have – even if I regret loving him so.
Returning to the club scene which previously defined me, I’m confronted with the realisation that my “not too long ago” was a very long ago indeed. Has it evolved? Or have I simply moved on?
I’ve made choices in my life. One of them was not having kids. Yet, disappointingly, I’m unable to escape the grip of Moana, or Frozen. My angst, it’s calling me.
This morning, Stan Lee, the grand old man who created countless universes, left us. However, to dorks like me, his work will forever remain, and thusly, he shall too.
Again, extreme violence has punctured the American landscape. But expecting change illustrates a complete ignorance of their history. It repeats, because they allow it to.
Scott Morrison might not be able to stop saying ‘fair dinkum’, but research actually shows that his colleagues are far more guilty of it. Fair dinkum.
I’ve been a Rockstar gamer since forever, but I’ve had to retreat to the internet to figure out what should be obvious in Red Dead 2.
As a gamer and a parent, I feel we need to heavily salt the negative sensationalism about gaming. Our kids are not at risk. In fact, quite the opposite.
By now, we’re overly familiar with Scott Morrison’s overly familiar social media videos. While we might roll our eyes at the tackiness, he’s connecting to the Australia that matters to him.
