This post is a warning to those who can’t possibly heed it. Because, frankly, when I was in your shoes, some years ago, I would have ignored me, too. Nonetheless, because I’m your Generation X, father, I will give it a go. I was idly watching the clip of the New Radicals ‘You Get What […]
Zeitgeisters, I recently received this letter right in my Facebook In-Box. It’s from a complete stranger, whom we shall refer to as Tiffani. That isn’t her real name, but the alias I have chosen approximates the feel of her actual name. Tiffani wrote to me almost a fortnight ago and I felt unable to answer […]
With all this talk of Iron Man 2, I thought now would be a good time to look back at how Marvel realised their superhero characters in the late 1960s. I remember seeing all of these on television as a kid. I think these introductions make it clear that the cartoons that followed weren’t particularly […]
I’m prepared to accept that I’m a bit of an ironic type who occasionally drifts into full on cynicism. I can be somewhat of a smartarse at times. (Yes, this, I confess).

I could see his point the moment I clicked on the pic. This bunny […]
You can talk about ex-Neighbours actors going on to greater success; Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Guy Pearce, Natalie Bassingthwaite and Delta Goodrem for example. But here at mrtrivia.net we believe the real success story of the vintage Aussie soap opera is New Zealand actor, Alan Dale. From 1985-93, Dale played the character of Jim Robinson. […]
A blog buddy and tweep of mine The Not Drowning Mother or @TheNDM for short, runs a very tight weblog called Not Drowning, Mothering.
Despite being known in my tiny circle as somewhat of a Star Wars heretic – that is to say: I don’t love Star Wars with every fibre of my existence; can see some flaws even with the first three movies; have never said and never will say that Empire Strikes Back is the best of […]
