That’s Metal

I’m thinking about starting a new business, combining my two main passions in life. The first is heavy metal music, which has always been my favourite thing to listen to. My parents hated it, but I think, as a teenager when I got into it, that only made me love the genre even more. The …

Premier’s Poor Plan

Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to fake a zombie apocalypse on the eve of the Victorian election. I really thought that would make everybody realise how awesome my favourite roleplaying game (Goblins and Grottos) is. Suddenly, I thought, they would understand why I had spent so much of the government’s money on that …

Broken Window Culprit

No, Lazarus and I did not deliberately break the front door so that we could have a sliding door installed! I cannot believe you would accuse us of such a thing! What’s that, Lazarus? Nobody is asking us anything because we are typing into a magical laptop computer? Oh, I guess I am just so …

Something’s Weird Here

Is it just me, or has Melbourne been much more interesting than other cities across the world over the last ten months or so? I feel like this time last year things were perfectly normal. Maybe I was just ignorant. I swear we didn’t have a Superhero Training Academy or a Supervillain Training Academy back …

Office Tinting Experience

I’m the owner of a medium sized company in Melbourne and I have always made the employee experience one of my top priorities. I’m a big believer in the fact that if you work hard for your employees then they will work hard for you, which I feel has really benefited the company. Lately, a …

Rewriting the Rulebook

True to form, Angela at the academy has decided to rewrite the rulebook at the last minute, and now we all have to come up with a new footwear solution just three days out from the competition. It’s absurd, I tell you. Unfortunately, this kind of thing has been par for the course ever since …

Stuck Sleeping North

Sleeping in your car isn’t as bad as most people assume. It’s cheap, for one thing. For another, it’s better than living on the street. It’s nice and cosy, and I actually find the chairs more comfortable than my bed back home. Just got to look on the bright side of things, you know? When …

Secret Obsession

I have a terrible secret. Without further ado, here it is: sometimes I spend hours at a time on looking at soft furnishings online. No just any soft furnishings, mind you; I’m very picky. I’m talking about designer upholstery, curtains, cushions and even wallpaper. Sure, that last one’s not technically a soft furnishing item, but …

Fun Guy

When it comes to foot health, you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone, or at least temporarily out of order. This came to my attention recently when I suffered a broken toe – the second to smallest one on my left foot. How much of a problem could that really be? Such a …

Location, Location

When I lived in Sydney, Tasmania seemed like such an unreachable, far-off land. I was well aware that it was no less accessible than most of the mainland – I mean, it wasn’t like I was about to hop in my car and drive to Broome or Adelaide. Still, it felt more distant by virtue …
