THE NAKED CITY – COFFIN ED PREDICTS (With Apologies To Criswell)

There was once a time when journalists, social commentators, futurologists, psychics and would be soothsayers would trot out a list of predictions for the coming year – some of them painfully predictable and others wildly improbable. Given some of the happenings of the past 12 months it’s little wonder few have been bold enough to […]

2020 Burn In Hell

By Sam Wade How the is it December already? Didn’t we start this shit awful year sometime last week, spent a good century in lockdown and now time has the sheer bloody audacity to tell us ‘yeah, nah it’s Christmas now. Jingle Jingle you fucks.’ I’m not into it. 2020 has been difficult and I […]

THE NAKED CITY – A LEXICON OF LUNACY

Every major event in history spawns its own set of words and phrases that become indelibly attached. The Vietnam War for example gave us ‘carpet bombing’, ‘napalm’, ‘agent orange’ and the ‘Viet Cong’, to name just a few.

Marrickville street art “censored”

By ALLISON HORE A political mural in Marrickville was defaced on Thursday night, less than 24 hours after it was painted. The mural titled, 'Vote or Die - Deal with the devil', depicted US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Scott shaking hands atop a pile of skulls. However, the mural was washed over with […]

THE NAKED CITY – CURTAINS FOR CRACKER NIGHT

Sydney without its annual pyrotechnic binge (aka the NYE Fireworks) is like Donald Trump without his fake tan, the Royal family without systemic dysfunction or the New York Post without the rantings of Miranda Devine. Okay, the analogies display where my prejudices lie but they also extend to the almost primal fascination some people have […]

THE NAKED CITY – ARE YOU SMARTER THAN TRUMP?

If some of our local politicians started boasting of an exceptionally high IQ or the way they breezed through a cognitive test, you might immediately question their motives. When Donald Trump does the same it hardly surprises, as such claims fit perfectly into his persona of bluster and self-aggrandisement. But just how smart is the Donald […]
