the six dirtiest words

Kaylia Payne
No comments

Lately it seems that the six dirtiest words in the English language are: ‘I like the way I look’. We rarely, if ever, hear those words come out of someone’s mouth. And if we do hear them, we are taken aback. One of the main insults I hear about girls, apart from that ever-loaded word…

After having just graced stages across Europe in a 40-date journey across the continent, WA’s bluesy fivesome, The Kill Devil Hills, are about to equally wow audiences across their native Australia. Lip chats to vocalist/guitarist/banjoist, Brendon Humphries. How’s the new album coming along? We’re just in the process of writing a lot of the material…

album review: mountain static, research

Serrin Prior
No comments

When reviewing a piece of work, it’s probably not best to lay all of one’s cards on the table immediately. It’s probably best to leave the readers guessing a little, and then after presenting the pros and cons, come to a conclusion. Well, in the case of Mountain Static’s Research, writerly caution must be thrown…

I am not someone who enjoys group exercise. I’ve never been a fan of aerobics, team sports, aqua aerobics, or boot camp – it seems like complete torture to me – myself and a group of complete strangers united in an active dislike of the perky instructor, or me, the last one in the row,…

While trolling youtube, I came across a very interesting documentary called “Love me if you dare“. The documentary delves into the thought processes and opinions of people’s interpretation of gender roles and further to that, how the social pressures of these roles impact on lesbian relationships. It’s a very interesting portrayal of the social concepts…

theatre review: speaking in tongues by andrew bovell

Rose Pullen
No comments

This is the play that a girl I know considered altering her flights to Europe for once she realised she’d miss it. That’s how much she was looking forward to seeing Andrew Bovell’s Speaking in Tongues, and although I’m sure Europe has its charms, she’s missing out. Directed by Geordie Brookman and featuring lighting and…

We are all familiar with Matiko – founded back in 2003 by Jesse Howard the label has since then been providing us with shoes that are beyond gorgeous and unbelievably comfortable – take it from me, I own two pairs. The label amalgamates European and South Californian styles effortlessly to produce shoes that are astronomically…

Sometime within the past month, I received a really interesting package in my makeshift Brooklyn mailbox. Considering that I am used to getting bills, random cards from my parents and a weekly subscription to TV Guide even though I don’t have a TV (thanks Nana!), this package was certainly out of the ordinary. On the front…

Lip Lit: When We Have Wings, Claire Corbett

lip magazine
No comments

When We Have Wings – a first-time novel from writer Claire Corbett – is a rather gripping read. It’s one of those books that while it isn’t exactly a great work of literature, grabs you in. You long for your train ride to last just a little bit longer, so you can keep reading. And when…

velvet d’amour

Sonya Krzywoszyja
One comment

Velvet D’Amour is a blogger, photographer, model and an advocate for plus sized women. She first came to my attention when she strutted her stuff on the catwalk for Gaultier and caused an uproar. A controversy. Because her body was in no way the norm for international catwalks. Because Gaultier must have been using her…

In the bustling world of business, gossip, finance and breaking news, it’s difficult to find time to remember that we are only a small part of a very large world. Further to that, it’s even more difficult to remember that we are a developed country of freedom and choice and that we have so many…

A word to the wise: do not attempt to do the readings for your winter school Australian politics course with this album going in the background. You will be forced to stop, jump up, and dance around the room like a right fool if you do. Not that this is any way a problem in…
