Food Review: Home made chocolate mousse

An unfortunate trait of my taste is that I adore sweets. I love to take my time with a new dessert, smelling it, tasting it, allowing its textures to melt across my tongue. In this case, I have been presented with a new twist on an old favourite: my mother’s chocolate mousse. She prepares them across the day for my arrival for dinner in the evening in glass bowls that once contained a store bought souffle. Read more …

Comedy Review: Larry Dean’s ‘Farcissist’ 10/04/17

Infectiously loveable, Glaswegian comedian, Larry Dean presented his latest stand up show Farcissist, in Swanson Street at the admirable Melbourne Town Hall as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

The audience filled the intimate Cloak Room at the Town Hall and were serenaded with music by iconic rockabilly singer Elvis Presley, which kept the audience engaged and in a happy mood whilst awaiting Dean to grace the stage. Read more …

BROKEN NEWS – Getting hammered just like Christ, New Easter tradition inducted into the papal canon.

Good Friday morning. St Peter’s Square overflowed with hoards of pious Catholics gathered to hear the wise words of Pope Francis. Thousands flock to Vatican City every year for the hallowed Easter Masses, eager to commemorate the day their Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, was crucified. Stepping out onto the balcony, the sun overhead, Pope Francis addressed all the people of the square with a simple prayer and greeting before shocking millions of Catholics worldwide with his unanticipated direction of Easter wisdom.

Catholics will now be able to partake in pub crawls, house parties and other such binge-drinking events around the world, in order to drink to their heart’s content in the name of Christ. “The Vatican formally encourages all Catholics to indulge in alcohol of all types: Beer, Cider, holy spirits and copious amount of the blood of Christ,” declared the Pope, “many centuries ago, Our Saviour got hammered so that one day we would be able to get hammered too.”

Reshuffle

PRESS RELEASE: 2017 COMMITTEE RESHUFFLE AND ANNOUNCEMENT OF SEMESTER ONE EGM

Today Radio Monash announces that Aleks Djukic has officially resigned from her position as 2017 Station President effective 19th of April 2017

The following statement was provided by Djukic, explaining the reasoning for her resignation and thanking both the 2017 Committee and member base for their support:

It is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation as President of Radio Monash. Due to health complications, I will no longer be able to fulfill the requirements needed to undertake this responsibility.

Since my term began in November of last year, I have been blown away by the continual hard work and dedication of my committee; from the AACTA awards, to the renovations of the space, to a reinvigorated broadcast grid and an incredible online presence. I am eternally grateful to all those who have contributed to the life of Radio Monash during my presidency.

While I am regretful of the fact that I will not be able to fulfill the full 12 month term, I am thankful for the understanding of my team and the community during this difficult time.

Luka Janicijevic, current Vice President and Production Manager, will be stepping up to the role of President in the interim and I trust that with his reinvigorated vision for Radio Monash, that our community will continue to grow, thrive and make an impression within Monash University and beyond.

My presidency will officially cease next Wednesday the 19th of April. Until then, business as usual. My inbox is always open for inquiries.

BROKEN NEWS: Isis Doc Says That Women Can Become Suicide Bombers Without Their Husband’s Permission

A newly recruited suicide bomber from within the ISIS organisation spoke with us anonymously, feeling compelled to express her feelings and intentions on joining the fight. “I just wanted to show the world that women can do any job just as well as a man can”, whispered our informant over her burner-phone from inside her secret hideaway within the camp. “I want to show everyone out there that we are free to do what we want as proud women. Sorry gotta go, my husband’s calling out for me”. Read more …

Teachers Changing Suit: The Issue with Netflix’s Riverdale

Please note that this post contains plot discussion and spoilers regarding the first episode of Netflix’s “Riverdale”

As a fan of the original Archie Comics I was surprised to find that the teacher, Ms Grundy was portrayed not as the older, proficient teacher of Riverdale High, instead she was used to market a new subplot of forbidden love between her and Archie.

The scene appears like this: Archie is chopping wood, of all things. Unbeknownst to him, the Slurpee-sipping, Julliard bound teacher is in her car watching him. With a glimpse of his abs the decision is made to invite him inside her car because “it’s far too hot” for him to be working so hard. Within seconds the frame cuts to teacher and student having sex in the back of her car. Read more …

I’m Not Satisfied! The Problem With Hamilton: An American Musical

Hamilton: An American Musical is an unquestionable modern phenomenon. It has supplanted Chicago, Wicked, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat as my favourite musical of all time. It’s a rap-based musical almost any naysayers of the genre in general should at least be able to stomach, its music is incredible, its lyrics succinctly poignant, its emotions conveyed brilliantly with the fervour that one can’t help but associate with Yanks in general (Yanks very much being the correct term for this crop of historical figures, given their status as New York natives).

But I’m calling bullshit on the romantic plot lines of this musical. Read more …

Women Creatives Are Constantly Undermined – And Here’s What I’m Doing to Stop That

For those of you who don’t know, Radio Monash had a woman elected to the role of president for the first time in a long while at the end of last year. That woman? Me; Aleks. Third year Immunology student. Pleasure to make your acquaintance.

If you know me personally, you’d be very aware at the fact that I’m goal and task oriented. You got a problem? Let’s work out how we can fix it. What’s in my control? What cannot be avoided? What can I start on immediately to work away at the issue? Along with avoiding micro-management at all costs, my other long-term goal for the year is to ensure that Radio Monash grows and flourishes as a space for all creatives. Read more …
