Watchmen @ Greater Union Megaplex, Innaloo

Hurrah! For the first time in a long while I actually enjoyed a movie at my local cinema. Greater Union Innaloo managed to start Watchmen at the advertised time, focus the projector and get the sound working – all simultaneously! Oh, and the movie wasn’t half bad either.

“Australia police target arsonists”

These two headlines are from the BBC News website. OK, I can hear you now. “Yeah, there’s an “N” missing from Australia, but geez Will, why be such a pedant about spelling and grammar?” Read the rest of this entry »

Return of the Merkin: Map-of-Tassie Mystery Deepens

Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition: “West Australian Editor Dumped”

January 15, 2009


“West Australian Editor Dumped” reports Fairfax’s Schadenfreude Times; alongside a riveting article about a maverick cigarette butt. Well, that’s a fackin’ start, eh (er, the dumping, not the butt)? Now, Mr K. Stokes, can we pretty fackin’ please do something about Pam Casellas? Read the rest of this entry »
