THE NAKED CITY – LAST TANGO IN PITT STREET

Record stores have always had a great romance about them – a gathering place for the like-minded to chat about their favourite music, the excitement of discovering something new and exciting and the sheer mental pleasure of browsing through thousands of CDs and old school vinyl. Whilst they are by no means extinct, and celebrations […]

THE NAKED CITY – THE PARANOIA AUSTRALIAN PARTY (PAP!)

Scaremongering has always been a part of the political process but has reached an even more insidious level in recent years with the manipulation of social media like Facebook, US style attack adverts and politicians fanning the flames of paranoia. Donald Trump has made a fine art of it with his blatant appeal to a […]

THE NAKED CITY – MAKE AUSTRALIA GRATE!

With a Federal Election looming a new form of street art has suddenly appeared all over Australia. Not some mindless variant on popular graffiti or a lovingly painted street mural – no,  it’s the defaced Clive Palmer United Australia Party billboard. With a budget that seems to know no bounds, Clive has been plastering the […]

THE NAKED CITY – ALL ABOARD THE PARTY ‘POLITICAL’ BUS!

Whilst the phenomenon is not unique to this country there is something intrinsically Australian about a group of like-minded young people loading onto an old reconditioned bus, laden with alcohol, a sound system blaring out deafening doof and enough flashing LED illumination to light up the Martin Place Christmas Tree. Yes, we are talking party […]

THE NAKED CITY – WHERE THE HELL IS REFU-JESUS?

Throughout history we’ve often wondered why men and women who hold strong religious beliefs often fail to put into practice the basic tenets of their sacred texts. This is of course particularly perplexing when it comes to those in positions of political power, especially when they make a big deal of their spiritual faith and […]

THE NAKED CITY – AUSTRALIA’S POWER SAVIOUR!

It helped bring down a Prime Minister and remains a quagmire of ideological bickering and governmental indecision. The ongoing power debate, coal versus renewables, has yet to be resolved but help could be on the way – or to put it more correctly, ‘on the waves’. Russia has recently launched a floating power station equipped […]

THE NAKED CITY – BRING ON THE SPAG POLITIK!

Part Shakespearian, part soap opera and part Dan Brown, the drama that played out in Canberra last week has left just about everybody gasping for fresh air. With a Federal election looming large it’s surely time to abandon conventional politics and look to a new paradigm free of dogma, 2GB talk back and the ranting […]

THE NAKED CITY – LET’S MAKE TRUMP WELCOME!

The news that Donald Trump might visit Australia in November en route to the APEC summit in Papua New Guinea has some in Australia salivating and others ready to run riot in the streets. The most polarising president in US history is set to have a similar effect if he does land Air Force One […]

NAKED CITY – GUNS & POKIES!

Donald Trump’s reaction to the Florida school shooting, suggesting teachers now be armed in the classroom, must have sent raptures through the upper echelons of the National Rifle Association. Talk about the knee jerk wisdom of a ‘stable genius’. What it did demonstrate was Trump’s almost unflagging alignment with America’s most powerful lobby group, one […]

Amalgamation blues

BY JADE MORELLINI The festive season is meant to be a time of giving, but that’s not the case for the State Government, which has reneged on their promise to reimburse Waverley, Woollahra and Randwick District Councils of $1,068,996 for the merger preparation costs. On the 27th July, the NSW State Government announced all proposed […]
