Recap: Fashfest Night 1 - The Activist

14/05/2015 by Jemma Mrdak

An Activist: a rebel who encourages others to change the world and a mischief maker who incites open revolution. These thoughts were front-of-mind after attending Night One of Fashfest. Canberra’s biggest fashion event of the year shone an incredibly large spotlight last night on the city’s exciting mix of young, local and established fashion and artistic designers.

There's only hours to go until Canberra's biggest fashion event kicks off.

Movie Review - Avengers: Age of Ultron

27/04/2015 by Sam Tremayne

One of this year’s biggest films, Avengers: Age of Ultron, is finally here. This is a movie that will break records, smash sales, sell a heap of toys and hold firm this record for a long time to come (well, until December when Star Wars comes out). It’s kind of funny that our generation’s Empire Strikes back is released the same year as the Star Wars universe is revived. Not that it matters… both films will line the pockets of Disney regardless and leaves them in a position where they’ll be Google rich in about 10 months.
