He often opens with a blunt statement before elaborating with fervent opinions; particularly memorable was the rant on his disdain for the Monarch. Most...

Alright everyone move back a bit, it's getting crowded around here. According to our mate Google, the planet is approaching a population of seven billion human people persons. Seven billion and on the rise. That means we're chewing up Earth's resources faster than a hipster cleans out an Op Shop.




Earth is a sinking ship....

Define y our genre in five words or less:


Soul singing, motown folk rocking!

Actor Yael Stone really doesn’t seem to mind sacrificing her body for her art. For her Diary Of A Madman production with Geoffrey Rush, she kept her head shaved for four months straight. Stone’s new production, A Golem Story required her to get completely slathered in mud for some eye-catching cover shots to depict the mud-based creature of the golem.
