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 …

Harry Potter & the Cursed Child review

Some spoilers ahead – each with individual warnings, chill

 

Three weeks ago on Friday I practically skipped into Dymocks to grab my copy of the new Harry Potter book, the eighth, an addendum to a series I have adored from my childhood, and will likely continue to love throughout my adulthood and long past the time old age will make me both wrinkly and potty.

I got home, and in the manner of Hermione Granger buried my nose in the book, barely looking up so that I could finish it as quickly as conceivably possible.

Online Employment: A Web of Problems

As a Uni student, I am poor. Though the year began with an acceptable amount of cash in my pocket, currently my account is on the verge of bankruptcy. Nevertheless, I persevered and followed the idea is gaining employment. Searching for a job, it seems, is now interactive. Sites like Job in a Click, Indeed, Jobspot and LinkedIn attempt to aid in job finding online. Companies like Sheridan and Myer only accept applications and resumes online; almost every major company seems to be online now. But still, I had, and still do have, trouble gaining employment.

Speak up about Suicide

Suicide is the largest killer of young people in Australia, killing more of our youth each year than car accidents. Yet it is increasingly misunderstood and largely closeted.

 

People commit suicide for a range of different reasons. Often, suicidal people believe they are not wanted anymore or think that no one would notice if they were no longer there. Others may suffer from depression or other mental health issues.

New & Improved: The Day the Shapes Died

Arnott’s, Arnott’s, Arnott’s…

Today, the world mourns the loss of Australia’s most underrated product. Sharing a shelf with Vegemite, Tim Tams, Milo, WeetBix and the Victa Lawn Mower, the Shape has become a staple of the Australian household. Their signature pentagonal and hexagonal “baked not fried” biscuits with little red bursts of flavour are one of the great inventions to come out of our country. 53 million boxes of these babies fly off Aussies shelves yearly.
