Hail Zeitgeisters, I am about to speak to youse about “Big Brother 2006”. Otherwise referred to as BB06. And yes, I refer to the Channel 10 reality show. If you are one of those who reacts reflexively and negatively to the mere mention of this program, then turn away NOW! As a Night Owl (read […]

Zdravstvuite, Zeitgeisters! Years ago, I watched a documentary on the band REM. Their method for coming up with album names involved pinning up a list in the studio while they worked on that album and band members would add names to the list as the mood took them.

G’day Zeitgeisters, When I get to work in the morning, I check my email and my voicemail. Adorably my voicemail usually has one or two hangups (as do we all). Those of you who feel a little nervous about speaking to my voicemail – you need to get over it – I don’t know who […]

And You’re Back in the Room

Hi Zeitgeisters, I am a lazy person. How lazy are you Mr Trivia? I can’t be bothered buying furniture, whitegoods, cutlery or crockery so I rent a furnished and fitted apartment in South Perth. Okay, not a snappy punchline. Not even funny, but it’s true. I had to move to my present address because my last […]
