A tight spot

A tight spot

There are many things to hate about winter.  I won’t bother going into them here, but we can probably all agree that winter, particularly in New Zealand, sucks the farts out of dead seagulls. And the worst thing about the miserable weather is the wardrobe.

The greatest song of all

The greatest song of all

When it’s 2am and the only people left at a party are the ones you’re not entirely comfortable talking to, conversation often lurches around trying to find common ground. Something you can all relate to. One such topic is “what’s the greatest song of all time?”

Comedy fest review: Jeremy Elwood – Notes

Comedy fest review: Jeremy Elwood – Notes

Jeremy Elwood is one of the mainstays of New Zealand comedy. He’s appeared on several TV shows, comedy galas, even stepping out as a serious actor on stage. And there’s a reason why he’s been around for so long (fourteen festivals apparently)*. He’s just that good.

Comedy fest review: Greg Ellis – Vance Fontaine for Lovers

Comedy fest review: Greg Ellis – Vance Fontaine for Lovers

Comedy festival review: Adam Wright & Rick Threlfo in Gloriously Average

It’s a bold marketing ploy calling your show “Gloriously Average” but that’s what two up-and-coming Wellington comics have done.

The Uniball Power Tank is just another entrant to Mitsubishi’s popular Uniball range of precision writing instruments. The model I tested featured black ink, but green, red and blue are also available.

Nigella Lawson. What a fox. Who cooks like that and looks as good as she does at 53? Hopefully me, and I think I’ve found the secret.
