Sayer’s Sister: worth eating out

Venue:Sayer’s Sister Date: 29 December 2013 Location: Northbridge, Perth Price: Moderate ($19ish-$20 for dish & coffee) Today’s brunch safari took us to the wilds of Northbridge/Highgate in Perth, destination: Sayer’s Sister. At first blush I read Slayer’s Sister, thinking we’d be heading to a Vic Park weed den to live out the bikie gang fantasies […]


Tramsheds Edit: Sir Chapel Bistro & Brewery

Verdict: pizza was average but I’d give other menu items a try. Urbane development is ratcheting up a notch around the inner west as property developers look for places to invest their money other than the two major political parties. A beneficiary of this recent crackdown on graft has been my local haunt of Glebe/Forest […]


Salt Meats Sleeze: a fleur de merde blossoms

Now this is a belated post…but if you believe in the plausibility of the Alcubierre warp drive (whose related metric I just had the pleasure of using to solve Einstein’s equation), temporal distance shouldn’t concern you that much. So. Salt Meats Cheese, or sleaze if you’re a certain Halloween pumpkin who became Republican nominee for […]


Merchants of Ultimo (Broadway, Sydney)

It’s just over an hour since the second presidential debate between Clinton and professional p**sy grabber Donald J Trump finished. It was a testy debate: no handshake after Trump called a presser with women he’d slagged off in the past to basically accuse his old golfing buddy Bill Clinton of being a rapist.  All class […]

The Brisbane Edit: Les Bubbles

Strip clubs. Brothels. Steak frites. Open up the unconscious of most men and that’s what you’ll find humming like a bumblebee in one form or another.  Luckily for those of us too cheapskate to afford  psychotherapy or too uncoordinated for trepannning, access to such a holy trinity is now no more than a short walking […]


The Brisbane Edit: Le Bon Choix

The apartment hotel at which we are staying has all the class of a second-hand suit moonlighting as a pair of pyjamas.  The lords of cheapskatery on were having a good chuckle – but as we’re only up in Vegas on a whim we thought we’d roll with unseen dice and try our hand […]


The Brisbane Edit: King Arthur’s table

I’m up in Brisbane this week to flog my political wares to Queensland Labor and visit my barmy relatives. Being the sporting type, I invited my girlfriend along to introduce her to my take-no-prisoners grandmother.  Being fashion victim bees to gentrified honey, after a night of ghoulishly taking the streets for something to eat past […]


Hylin Noon

Establishment: Hylin @ West Leederville, Perth Date: November 2015 Location: 178 Railway Pde, West Leederville, Perth 6005 Price: Acai Bowl of Organic Culturally Relativist Goodness, $11; Smashed Avo with Grilled Pig, $19.50ish ($15.50 + $4), Coffee, $4? PERT(H)INENT The Antipodes had been blaring out its siren song of 94.5 FM easy divorcee tracks of late, a cacophony that became particularly […]

Harpoon Harry menu

Huxtaburger aka Hangry Burger

Establishment: Huxtaburger Popup @ Harpoon Harry’s Date: 26 July 2015 Location: Harpoon Harry’s Price: Huxtaburger $9.50, Chips $4 THE BAIT A Facebook notification that someone I may have once shared a deep and meaningless conversation with at a party was heading to a trendy burger popup ‘event’ at a former musty old drinking hole was all the persuading I needed to […]

Mary’s (Burger) CBDelicious

Venue: Mary’s CBD Date: 3 December 2014 Location: 154 Castlereagh St, Sydney Price: Cheap enough to get fat quick (burgers $10, fries…$3?) Urgin’ Mary Mary’s takeaway in the city. Nuff said. But why let brevity get in the way. Mary’s of Newtown (or as it should probably be known, Mary’s Burgers) has finally got the band […]


Movie Review: Interstellar – Journey into a 5-Dimensional Library

  Movie Review: Interstellar It was mission accomplished, George W. Bush-style. Humanity had finally conquered its ultimate barrier, interstellar distance. No longer would we be tethered like a fat kid in swimming lessons, onward and upward! Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s new epic blockbuster about humankind’s journey to the stars, had arrived. As I suspect was the […]
