Finally, I can return to writing my masterpiece, The Figgle McWiggle Chronicles: Figgle McWiggle and the World’s Largest Block of Ice! It’s book five of my unpublished epic fantasy series, and it’s currently eight hundred and seventy-nine thousand words …

Peace on Mars

How long do you think it will be before we’re all living on Mars? I daydream about the future colonies all the time. When they make the call for people to take a rocket to that little red planet, I’ll be first in line. I’ve already got a conveyancing firm around Elwood in mind, just …

Shocking Issues

When I was a kid, I used to play this video game called ‘I’m Famous’, where your character had the superpower to control electricity. Most of the time you would be riding along the power lines, blowing up petrol stations, or throwing lightning grenades at your enemies. They were all great and memorable moments, but …

Timber Animal Mastery

All my friends thought I was nuts for going back to full-time study when I was 30, but I sure showed them. I’m out of the corporate life, got a good stock of savings and now I can pursue my passion: crafting small animals out of wood so I can sell them at local markets. …

Poetic Cooling

If 27 years of life have taught me anything, it’s that most poetry sucks. Not all of it; just a vast majority. It’s a way of bending the rules of the English language in a way that obscures meaning, then pretending that makes you deep for some reason. No, you do NOT get artistic props …

Bowled Over

What’s the ultimate Christmas party look? Speaking from experience, I’d say the answer is ‘not a leg brace’. You can have the most of-the-moment, nonchalant-chic outfit around, but it’s nothing if it doesn’t have matching heels fit for the red carpet. A leg brace, as I discovered, will interfere with that.  It’s a catch 22 …

Going Deep

Now’s the time to get a boat, I’ve decided. I’ve always thought it might be a good idea – you never know when a flood’s going to strike up and wash away all worldly possessions while also leaving you without a means of transport. That might sound bleak, but I’m just saying that boat skills …

The Impossible Project

First they’re bringing back Church Park, and now the Keymore Mansion…again. Throwback, much? Also, people have tried like a dozen times to make something of the Keymore Mansion, and they’ve always been scared off, either by the tentacle monster in the basement or the spooky little girl in the red dress. And sometimes the oozing …
