Hey, gidday mates! Long time no talk. My life has felt pretty hectic over the past few months, and my motivation to blog has dropped as a result. Sometimes when things are so up and down the last thing you feel like is writing about yourself on the internet. I’m sure you can relate. Or maybe you can’t, I dunno. Basically I’ve had a few huge life shifts which I don’t really wanna talk about and then a ton of travel in quick succession — Coachella, New Zealand for my Nana’s funeral, Anguilla to DJ a wedding — and then this past weekend Jenny and I deejayed 21 hours worth of parties in two days. Some would say I’m blessed to be stressed.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates. I was having a text conversation with a couple of red-blooded, macho male friends yesterday when they started teasing me about being gay. “You are gay though, right? That whole relationship thing with you and Jenny is just for work, right?” I lost my temper and what was a light chat turned dark pretty quickly after I lashed out. I overreacted.

Hey, gidday mates! What a week it’s been. I don’t normally talk politics here, but how can you not at a time like this?

And that’s not even mentioning the general consensus that, ‘It is what it is, and it’s not going to change.’ I strongly believe that one thing this campaign has shown us is that racism and prejudice are alive and well and living in America, and that misguided fear directed in a cunning way is an incredibly powerful weapon. Don’t understand these people? Hatred is the answer! The system is broken.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I went and saw the new Rebel Wilson/Dakota Johnson movie How To Be Single last night, and as a relationship-advice-giver, I was extremely pleased to find that its message was one of the most sage to ever have come out of Hollywood, especially in a film featuring young women, aimed at young women.Click to Continue!
1. I’m fascinated by what’s happening right now in American politics, but because I’m not a naturalized citizen of this country, all I can do is whinge and opine, whinge and opine. For the record, if I could vote, it’d be for Bernie Sanders, simply because it makes a lot of sense to me that if you take away the ability of big business to
buy influence policy, then perhaps the government would begin to operate in the interests of its citizens and not its corporations.
