It is coming to that time of year when a rather overweight man in a red suit allegedly tumbles down your chimney, even though your house is now fitted with reverse cycle air conditioning. Stores are full of carols that do not make sense in the southern hemisphere, along with aisle upon aisle of gift…

’tis the season

Why is Christmas so disappointing for adults? Ever since I was a kid, Christmas was the best thing in the year, the thing I most looked forward to. But as many others will probably agree, as you get older, that magic lessens and especially in my case, is replaced by a pessimism and cynicism I…

On the first day of Christmas, Sydney city gave to me…an exorbitant parking fee I’ve never owned a car. Okay, that’s not entirely correct. It was bottle green with red interior, a 1980’s throw-back to Suzuki’s hey day, nudge bar and manual locking inclusive. I neglected Cornelius (another reason I shouldn’t have children, my penchant…

Emma Koehn
No comments

Christmas can prompt pretty ridiculous purchases (tis the silly season, after all). Even so, the concept of syringes and permanent marker on flabby body parts are not exactly festive imagery.

I’m not embarrassed to admit that it was love at first sight (well, sound) with this album, and I’m even happier to declare that it only gets better the more that I listen to it. As soon as I knew it was out last month, I ran down to my nearest JB Hifi and exchanged …
