INTERVIEW: The Woman Who Owns The Sun Is Using Her Powers For Good // VICE

56-year-old Angeles Duran legally owns the sun. Yes, the whole thing. It’s hers, and it provides her with quite the solar-powered income stream. I know, left? I was skeptical at first too – but a little Spanish lady from a little Spanish village does not upgrade those living conditions to ‘big’ and ‘Italian’ and ‘villa’…

INTERVIEW: The Black Dahlia Murder’s Brian Eschbach // Blunt

I’d spent the morning talking to (now former) Arch Enemy vocalist Angela Gossow about her patented ganja breakfast drink, which she’d just eaten, glass and everything, and was totally fucking high. In the afternoon I buzzed The Black Dahlia Murder guitarist Brian Eschbach and I swear, this is not some convenient hallucination I had, when…

EDITORIAL: Final Fantasy X’s War On Organised Religion // IGN

First thing’s worst: I don’t review entertaining things and stuff anymore, hey. I sort of decided it wasn’t up to me to quantify art like that. Who am I to tell anyone What’s good? Go have fun with what ya like. Life’s short, babe. In rejecting this model, though, I discovered a whole new way…

INTERVIEW: NOFX’s Fat Mike // Hysteria

Fat Mike is a purveyor of fine absurdity and so am I, which is why I ended up talking to him for an hour about how his wifey (dominatrix of some renown Soma Snakeoil) kicks his dick around in big shoes. The subject of music was not broached once and that was and is actually…

INTERVIEW: Ben Mendelsohn // The Guardian

Full and sensual disclosure: Ben Mendelsohn is tangentially related to me but not really. Without monkeying up the ridiculous and sassy gnarled willow that is my fam-tree, he’s actually related to someone else who is semi-related to me and yada yada we’re a tribe of wildling sluts. Point is, I’d casually hung out with him…

FEATURE: Jona Weinhofen VS. The Australian Wool Industry // Noisey

Circa May last year, PETA and noted PETA spokesbeard Jona Weinhofen came out with a super confronting campaign in fanged opposition to the shearing of sheepies. The lamb in Jona’s hands is not real, of course, and outraged farmers were correct in asserting nobody would fleece an infant sheep as repped here – so what…

FICTION: Son of No. One // Antipodes

I wanted to write about Australian life as Australian life can be in the cities, the interior. Most of us function very far from the land of gum trees and windmills and true blue Aussie blokes yeah mate yeah beers ‘n that fuckin’ sport ay yeah she’ll be right as bafflingly and consistently espoused by…

FEATURE: Bi Club // DNA

Ah yeah, bisexuals. You know them. See them on the street sometimes. Very obvious. That is a lie. It is a condition of using ‘LGBTQI’ in Scrabble (it’s allowed) that, to make the ‘B’, you must use one of those blank tiles that has been told it can be anything. Bisexuals, it seemed to me…

FEATURE: The Story So Far Cry // Hyper

Back in 2012 when Far Cry 3 was just a cool whisper on the island wind before it’d be a GotY typhoon, Ubisoft initiated Protocol Pre-Release Hype as big studios like to do because money and fame and bitches. Usually this will amount to a slew of carefully curated hands-on demos and maybe they’ll fly…
