Danger! High voltage! When we touch, when we kiss.

Electrical Storms – Sitting in Clovelly car park (or other suitable oceanside vantage points) and watching the lightning is one of summer’s great joys.

Panty Postman – If you didn’t get the missus a subscription for sexy knickers for Xmas, it’s not too late to do so for Valentine’s Day. Visit

Test Cricket – Is there anything better than a five-day block of world class cricket? If you answered ‘yes’, you are wrong. Test cricket rules, okay!

A Brand Spanking New Year – If you had a shitty 2016, you can now happily forget about it and start preparing for a less shitty 2017. Hurrah!

Long, Hot Days – Late evening swims, backyard barbecues, singlets, stubbies and thongs. Long, hot days are what The Beast yearns for and now they are here.


Asthma Storms – At last check, eight people had died in Melbourne as a result of November’s so-called ‘asthma storm’. That’s pretty bloody scary.

Sticky Sheets – Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about the result of hot, humid summer nights, not some debaucherous bedroom romp.

The Death of Print – Dolly magazine disappeared from newsstands last month. What will be next? Will The Beast survive? Of course we bloody will!

Childcare Centre Closures – Those few weeks over Christmas/New Year when you can’t send your kids to childcare are complete torture. Agreed?

Adulting – Do we really have to grow up? Being an adult sucks. Can’t we just behave like children forever and forget about the worries of the world?
