Tony Failure: Mistakes Were Made

There are times in our lives when we make ill-informed decisions and pay the consequences for years to come. Take, for instance, my shortsighted decision to become a yoga guru, swapping tinea and chunky runners’ thighs for a purple mat and elegant Luluemon leggings; a stupid and dangerous decision that deprived my readers of my […]

Video of the Week – The Man With Two Mouths

Madrid Fusion – The Man With Two Mouths from Alberto Bañares on Vimeo. This fake documentary shows how life would be if we had two mouths. Yep, two mouths. It is actually a commercial for Madrid Fusion, an international gastronomic summit held annually in Madrid, Spain. It’s kind of painful to watch but amusing at […]

Video of the Week – Diving Giraffes

5 mètres 80 from Nicolas Deveaux on Vimeo. Words cannot describe this video. It’s one the most ludicrous things I’ve watched, yet strangely compelling all the same. Who’d have thought that watching five minutes of animated giraffes diving from the high towers would be enjoyable. Well, it is. This short film took a year and […]

Mr Mark Is A Very Lucky Man

“Yes Mr Mark, you very lucky man,” Rosita the Balinese maid giggled as Mr Mark finally made it to the breakfast table. “You have beautiful wife and you have handsome boyfriend.” Poor Mark was extremely confused at the bold statement. Attempting to drink one’s own bodyweight in alcohol the night before didn’t really help. His […]

The Proof Is In The Packaging

I know that I am a fairly negative chap at the best of times, and there are many things in this world that I despise, but nothing gets my goat quite as much as littering, particularly here in our beautiful little corner of the planet. And, quite frankly, I blame the westies, because there is […]

Do We Need A Sex Contract?

I am always amazed how common it is for couples to marry or settle down without first discussing what to expect from their relationship. Often couples don’t talk about it because their expectations are based on hidden assumptions formed on hopes and dreams rather than reality. Two people in a relationship should have a shared […]

Fancy A Flutter?

This month the carnival comes to town. Not the one with clowns and shifty blokes with explorative hands; that’s out at Homebush. The one with horses and champagne, fancy dresses and ridiculous hats, and blokes who have no business wearing suits drinking heavily before midday. If you haven’t guessed already, I’m talking about the Sydney […]

Three Things You Should Definitely Do In Fiji

Volunteer Work When you’re away on holidays it usually means relaxing, over-indulging and not doing too much. That’s usually my agenda anyway, but I recently discovered a holiday with a twist. Volunteer work is not usually mentioned when discussing holidays to exotic destinations, so whilst staying at the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort recently, it came […]

How’s The Enemy?

My parents always joked (or maybe they weren’t joking), “How’s the enemy?” to one another during busy days. Being free spirited, passionate life livers, they were, of course, talking about time, or the lack thereof. As a youngster I always grinned and enjoyed their lighted-hearted way of checking on a schedule. With the passing of […]
