How far would you go for a rare record?

3 Comments 27 November 2016

In the age of the internet often it can seem as if everything is only a click or two away. Need someone to deliver a curry at 1am? Just use Uber Eats.  Need someone to come and wash the windows while you hide out a cafe looking at stuff on Pinterest and feeling guilty about […]

Cinema streamlining

No Comments 18 November 2016

I think we all agree – the cinema experience could be streamlined a bit, starting with the omission of the world’s most redundant question: ‘Where would you like to sit’? There is, and always has been, only one answer to this question. You know it. So does the person behind the counter asking the question… […]

VIDEO: Housewifery Handbook from 1952

No Comments 14 November 2016

What can we learn from a Housewifery Handbook published in 1952? We decided to get together for a coffee at Dear Abbey today and find out… Without going into too much detail (unlike the book which has a whole chapter devoted to dust) let’s just say it’s a comprehensive guide to running a clean and […]

Anticipation Fatigue

1 Comment 08 November 2016

Drop everything, Jerry Seinfeld is coming to town. ‘Oh my god, gotta get tickets!’ ‘How good is Seinfeld?’ ‘This is gonna be amazing!’ ‘Roll on… August 2017’?!! What is the deal with tickets for a show going on sale 9 months out? With lead times this long, how can we not suffer anticipation fatigue? For […]

Shoes without socks

4 Comments 04 November 2016

You wouldn’t want to own shares in socks right now would you? You know… socks? Those cotton things we used to wear on our feet? They used to be quite highly regarded. People used to say ‘pull your socks up’ as though it was something to aspire towards. I wore my first pair of socks […]

Do you remember Sweet Valley High?

No Comments 31 October 2016

How old are you now? I’m guessing if you’re a woman of a certain age (say old enough to have had a bus driver punch your paper ticket on the way to school but not quite old enough to understand negative gearing or the popularity of Pauline Hansen) you’ll remember the Sweet Valley High series […]

Abandoning a crap story

No Comments 28 October 2016

On friday night I bore witness to a most rare and under utilised skill. A friend of mine was halfway through a telling lengthy story when he recognised he’d lost his audience. It’s a horrible feeling isn’t it but what can you do? Well, incredibly, my mate had the presence of mind to abandon the […]

VIDEO: Jeff’s personal hygiene

No Comments 25 October 2016

This week we caught up for a coffee at Focus Melbourne to discuss the following items of critical importance. Jeff’s ear hygiene. Is it normal for someone’s ear to get blocked and need to be cleared by a Doctor or is Kate right in saying that Jeff needs to work on his personal hygiene? Why […]

Why Uber Eats is uber popular

No Comments 21 October 2016

On sunday morning I ate some very good fried chicken and waffles. Very good… So good I wondered why the restaurant was half empty. There was no queue out the door, no wait staff running around, it was calm and quiet – except in the kitchen where the chefs were going flat stick. Orders were […]

2001: A Smart Fridge Odyssey

No Comments 21 September 2016

I went for a run this morning. The details are logged on my smart watch; distance, calories burned, even my cadence. Cadence is the number of steps you take on one foot per minute whilst running – I looked it up on my smart phone last night. Really, how good is smart technology? The next […]
