NAKED CITY – THE ART OF THE HOMELESS

With Coffin Ed. Everybody loves a party but when the annual cost is around $760,000, paid for out of the public purse and strictly invite only, the celebration is definitely not universal. That’s been the case with the Lord Mayor Clover Moore’s annual knees up at the Opera House for New Year’s Eve, where last […]

NAKED CITY – TAG TEAM HUSTLING!

With Coffin Ed. A few weeks ago I made reference to the many fine historical photographs of Sydney that the City Council was now displaying on building sites throughout the city. Enlarged to mural size proportions and printed in evocative sepia, they are a wonderful reminder of what the city used to look like from […]

NAKED CITY – SURVIVALIST SYDNEY

With escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula, the tabloids and internet news feeds have had a field day with their predictions of nuclear mayhem.

Finally we had the chance to do 5 per cent more than nothing, but we let it slip through our fingers. The CPRS was our last best […]

Climate Inaction – the white choice

People - is there any point to climate change without them? So let's just say it: death to brown people. Ironic that Penny Wong should be Minister for Climate Change when it is set to be the most racist unnatural disaster since the Vietnam War. But that's just a coincidence - a coincidence that Asian, […]
