Eloise Baker
No comments

  When I first listened to Lowell, it was on my laptop while visiting friends in Newcastle, so predictably what I heard was terrible. Tinny laptop speakers can make a pretty bad first impression. I’m so glad that I then made the effort to listen to this substantial EP, I Killed Sara V through decent…

“She’s got something.” So eminent author Charles Dickens first discloses his affection for 18 year old, Ellen (Nelly) Ternan in the recently released biopic, The Invisible Woman. Though it sometimes labours to fulfil the task, this film echoes Dickens’ sentiment: the story of the author’s hidden mistress has got something. It speaks on Dickens, love,…

One comment

Yes, the Housewives have hit Melbourne. Only none of the six are actually housewives in the traditional sense; one’s a twice-divorced property developer and another is a successful barrister. So, what gives? Much like its American predecessor, the Melbourne makeover of The Real Housewives of franchise sticks to a tried-and-trusted formula of wealthy women arguing,…
