Kai Smythe, a Melbourne-based musician, comedian and performer is Hairy Soul Man, a peacock of a performer full of swagger and confidence.
I turn up to San Fran to see Urzila Carlson about two minutes before the show starts, and the venue is packed.
My momma always told me it was rude to point my finger, so in a very rare moment of obedience, I obliged. It wasn’t always easy not pointing at things.
I’m the mother of a three year-old child. As each day passes, she grows more and more independent.
New Zealand’s tourist department used to attract all kinds of people to our shores.
Flowers are delightful. Wouldn’t you agree? They come in different kinds and colours or whatever. They’re splendid.
As you know, my esteemed Ruminator colleague, Kim, recently reviewed Nigella Lawson’s Maple Chicken ‘n’ Ribs recipe. She gave the dish flavourable reviews (see what I did there?), so I thought I’d give it a shot.
Nobody takes ponies seriously anymore. Not even you. I saw you chuckle just then.
I was born in 1979, during the decline of technology. I’m not saying today’s technology is dead, but it bores me to tears.
Boy. Things are getting serious. As an American living in Australia, I feel arrogant enough to tell you the NZ Labour Party is over. Finito. Long gone are the Frasers and Kirks and Clarks.
I hate facial hair on guys. Hitler moustaches however, can be sexy, depending on the context*.

I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know. Queues suck. Can you really think of anything worse than standing behind another person who’s standing behind another person?
Victoria’s Secret dominates the lingerie market. They’re a multi-cajillion dollar business that, as far as I can tell, targets its ads primarily at the eyeballs and regular balls of pubescent and post-pubescent men.
Yeesh, things certainly have become rather serious on The Ruminator. Other writers have been talking about racism, sexism, anxiety disorders, and techno-annoyance (of this and this). It’s enough to cramp your furrowed brows.
